  1. Look Fantastic and Lush!

  2. I WANT THEM ALL!!!! *rocking in a corner waiting for me to lose*

    • Hahaaa, SAME!!!!!!

  3. Thank you, Liz and MSA!!!

  4. Look Fantastic for the win! I got one already and would love to be able to gift one to a friend.
    Also the L’Occitane advent would be amazing!

  5. My favorite Calendar is the Look Fantastic 2017 Beauty Advent Calendar. It is absolutely beautiful and can be repurposed to use as a makeup storage chest and vanity with the mirror and tray in the top! The products that come in it are well worth the price of it too.

  6. Don’t get me wrong – I really do want to win this. But I feel like having 24 winners (one box each) would be better. It’d still be the same high-impact raffle, but with more winners.

    My favorite to win would be the Bare Minerals one.

    • I agree. Winning all 24 would be amazing (“My advent calendar this year is opening one advent calendar day!”) I’d rather see 24 happy winners, but that is just the way I am. One way or another, this is an amazing giveaway, Liz! Well done! Whowver wins it will be so, so fortunate!

    • Agreed

    • I was thinking the same! Maybe a winner each day during the countdown.

      Look Fantastic & Bare Minerals would be my favorites, I think.

      • So much Yes.
        Like an advent calendar for advent calendars!

        • That’s an awesome idea. Sort of like MSA could reveal each day from the “MSA online advent calendar” who the lucky winner is for that day’s advent calendar giveaway by having an animated door opening to reveal the person’s MSA name. 🙂

          • Yes, like a meta-advent-giveaway 🙂 That would be pretty fun! Not that a prize of 24 advent calendars wouldn’t be fun, too – but spreading it out would be more exciting and more people could win.

    • I agree, no one needs 24 calendars, 24 winners would be much more satisfying!

    • I would really just want the atelier one. Any chance it will go on sale?

      • Sephora’s sale is coming up soon, and they’re selling the Atelier calendar. 🙂

    • I agree.

    • Thanks for the feedback! We wanted to do our biggest giveaway ever and make sure the winner got all the advent calendars they wanted and have extras to share with friends and family so that’s why we decided to do it this way.

      But the good news is that we have a lot of holiday giveaways planned for this month and next month – there will be more prizes to win! 🙂

      • I love this prize! I’m glad you did it this way. Thank you so much!

        • I agree with Bonnie! Such a great giveaway and very generous! I’m kind of in trouble now, though. I found your site and I’m wanting more boxes! My daughter was a huge fan and she told me to check you out! She’s a subscription addict, too!!

          • Welcome to the dark side. I came here once because I googled a review for one sub – don’t remember which one, and I stayed and have since gotten hooked and now subscribe to a ridiculous amount. I went from 3 beauty subs, to countless beauty subs, and have since branched out to lifestyle, jewelry, and snacks. Sometimes I even troll other sites looking for new subs that MSA hasn’t mentioned yet.

      • I think this is AMAZING!!! Thank you for the opportunity to win. It may be just me but the link to share on Facebook isn’t working.

      • I love the huge prize idea! This is a great way to do it! One amazing gift for someone. Thanks Liz.

    • I agree, 24 happy winners vs one VERY happy winner. 🙂 But either way, this is an awesome giveaway. Thanks!

      • I DEF like the idea of 24 winners instead of just one!!! You could pick 24 winners & then first person picked chooses first and I LOVE advent calenders; my mama started them in the morning.

  7. Look Fantastic and Lush

  8. My favorite is the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar.

  9. I forgot to mention my favorite – L’Occitane. At $69 (up from $55 last year) this year I am not splurging but I really, really want it.

  10. Holy crap that’s a lot of advent calendars. If I win I will make a lot of forum friends very happy! You get a calendar, you get a calendar, you get a calendar…

  11. The only one I new about last year was Target and bought that one. My eyes and mind have been opened!!

  12. What a great giveaway! If I had to pick, I’d say the L’Occitane calendar just because I’ve always been interested in trying more of their products (I once got some of their hand creams as a gift and loved them).

  13. I’m so excited! Thanks MSA!! I’m looking forward to Black Friday! I bought a lot last year. I look here for Ulta BF deals (calendar).

  14. Thanks! My favorites is the Bonne Maman Advent Calendar. yummy

  15. Johnny Loves Rosie Jewelry for two reasons: I love the way the box looks, RED tree! LOVE! and I would love to receive 25 pieces of new jewelry! Awesome!!!!

  16. LUSH!

  17. I cannot pick!!! I WANT THEM ALL ….

  18. My favorite calendar that I’ve seen is the Liberty advent calendar even though I’ll never be able to receive it since it doesn’t ship to the U.S. (and I’m not willing to spend an extra $60 or so for a shipping service). Sad!!!

  19. Omg too hard to pick one. I love them all!

  20. Hard to pick, but I’ll have to go with the Johnny Loves Rosie Jewelry calendar. I love that it’s a jewelry calendar, and the pieces are right up my alley – dainty and blingy.

  21. Wowzers! Hitting out of the park with this giveaway Liz!

    Looking forward to the better than black Friday deals!

  22. QVC maybe because I have no idea what would be in it. I’m thrilled with advent calendars with tiny pieces of chocolate- so anything nicer would be fantastic!

  23. Look Fantastic 🙂 …. they are all pretty amazing!!!

  24. You are awesome, Liz! Thanks!
    I really want to win so I could gift them all to my kids’ wonderful teachers.
    Can’t afford all of them but could make 24 dedicated educators very happy.

  25. OMG! So hard to pick. I love Lush (never been in a store) and Disney Olaf (for my grandson)

  26. Lush 12 Days of Christmas!

  27. OMG…this is crazy! I really want Sleek, NYX, and Look Fantastic

  28. Ahhhh!!!!! Is this real life?!!!! I am OBSESSED with all of the advent calendars and wish I was a bajillionare so I could afford them all. My favorite has got to be Lush Cosmetics. I would love to win this giveaway so I can try out some of the other advent calendars to possibly discover a new favorite. Thanks Liz and all of the MSA crew for doing this for us! You da best! 🙂

  29. Wow!! Thanks so much Liz!!
    Charlotte tilbury for me and Disney Tsum Tsum for my daughter.

  30. This might be the greatest giveaway in the history of giveaways! What a beautiful thought for the holidays, Liz!

  31. Hingston and Olson! a short story advent calendar is such an interesting idea!

  32. I love that Amore Pacific Advent Calendar . I bought 2 from them and still think that I will pick up another one at sephora during their 20% sale. That is how much I love them.

  33. Lush or Bare Minerals.

    OMG, this is an amazing giveaway! Please Please Please! 🙂

  34. Got my eye on the Amore Pacific one!
    Love the pic of you surrounded by those boxes 🙂

  35. Look Fantastic, QVC, Lush… etc. etc.

  36. Amazing!!! Lush for me and Disney Tsum Tsum for my girls! Thank you for doing such ans awesome giveaway!

  37. My favorite so far is the The Body Shop 24 Days Of Beauty Advent Calendar.

  38. Look fantastic and Tsum Tsum for sure!!!!

  39. Holy Smokes! If I had to single one out, it would have to be Lush.

  40. Look Fantastic looks FANTASTIC!

    • Ditto!! Oh winning this would be the BEST gift EVER!!

      • I agree, this is an amazing giveaway! Thank you MSA

  41. Lush and Look Fantastic !
