I’m seeing this comment, Luna! I’ve been waiting for this to drop. I got the email about it a couple days ago and came to the thread to see if the UK crackers have dropped. I think I prefer that calendar to this one. The GWP product list is extensive, but they seem to all be tiny samples. There aren’t even travel sizes, they’re all just samples.

Luna

Last year the cracker gwp dropped on 10/31, so I’m anticipating it to go live some time next week. 🙂 I agree, the products in the gwp do seem pretty small (I was really noticing this when I was typing them out), but that’s okay since I was planning on getting this calendar anyways… even with the small sizes in the gwp, I still feel like I’m getting more bang for my buck with the gwp as opposed to getting the calendar by itself. 🙂

Rochelle

I agree completely with both of you. I used to love Space NK, they were my very first huge gwp bag many years ago. They were just amazing and always included something new, cutting edge, & exciting… at least to me. The Barney’s bag isn’t very good this time either if you’ve gotten most of those same samples a million times. I used to get both the Space Nk & Barney’s Love Yourself Event bags 2x a year religiously with good step up gifts plus a lot in between too. Those events used to be pretty exciting & I would literally wait for the spoilers and pre-order dates to order one. Now I usually pass and wait for a sale somewhere else instead. If the two overlap at Space Nk this fall, I may bite too.

Luna

I totally agree that their buy-in levels are getting a bit out of control and I also agree that the gwp bags were starting to feel redundant, at least to me… those two reasons are actually why I literally haven’t spent a cent there this year… and I got EVERY gwp bag and the step up gift (oh ya!, I forgot to mention their (usually) full-size step up gifts they usually offer for only $30 more than the gwp buy-in!) they would offer the past few years (which was the only time I’d shop from)… thus the redundancy. Lol. But I have to say that their last gwp for the Summer did have a decent number of products that caught my eye and I know I don’t have…so maybe my patience is paying off? Lol. Oh! And about the buy-in, I still can’t help but chuckle how on, I think it was, their February gwp, they actually used the word “simply” before saying you had to spend $285 to get the gwp. LOL!!! (the buy-in has been slowly creeping up from $250 when I first started getting them) I guess us sub box addicts definitely aren’t their target market! Even though I think the buy-ins are fairly high, I still don’t mind going for it this time since I’ll be spending almost the amount required anyways to get the calendar. I can’t recall if the Space NK calendars ever went on sale last year, but for me it’s worth it to pay full price if I can get the gwp with it. If they didn’t offer the gwp, I’d most likely wait too to see if it goes on sale since I’ll already be getting other calendars that offer the same type of products, so if I missed out on this one so be it. 🙂

Luna

I thought I’d add that it’s really only their Winter & Fall gwps whose buy-ins are in the upper $200s. I think that’s because of how many products they include in them. Their other gwps (that still have a sizable amount of products) are usually around $150-$175, which is on par with stores like Neiman Marcus (whose gwps, to me, don’t stand a chance against Space NK’s).

Raquel

Luna is honestly the real MVP on MSA 😂 I speak for everyone when I say THANK. YOU. for your time doing and posting price breakdowns on all things beauty when you undoubtedly have other things going on and you don’t even work for MSA. I think it’s so kind of you! Just had to show appreciation where it’s needed!! lol 😁

Rochelle

Ditto! Thank you Luna 🙂

Connie

Well said Raquel. Big Thank from me also.

Luna

Thank YOU both!! 🙂 I have so much fun doing all of this, and since I don’t have anyone IRL that enjoys (okay, is addicted to 😉 ) beauty products, gwps, boxes, deals, etc. like I do I’m so grateful I’ve found MSA where all of us addicts can share in this fun life indulgence together while helping each other out to save whatever $$$ we can or get the most bang for our buck. I’m so incredibly thankful for the MSA community we have here. 🙂

Cindy

Pretty sure I will get the US one at GWP time.

Nat

All I did was look at the price and said big fat NO. However, I would love to have this for cheaper

JustJese

Wow Luna, thanks for this! I was tempted to just get the UK version… but with the gwp and that Barbara Sturm serum, I may just wait and get the US version.

Luna

You’re welcome! 🙂

Tat

Well done, Luna. Thanks. So the best play would be for two to kick in. Valuable to know.

Tat

GWP! Silly auto correct.

Luna

I think so! I mean if you’re going to be spending that much on a calendar, might as well double the amount of products you’ll be getting while you’re at it! 🙂

Luna

I thought I’d compare the contents of both calendars so we can see what products are overlapping, and if anyone’s interested in getting one of them I thought maybe seeing the comparisons may help in deciding which one is more worth it to you. 🙂

A couple of things to note:

1) These are 25-day calendars, but I noticed that they only listed 24 products (which includes the gift card in the U.S. calendar). I have no doubt there will be 25 products, so I’m guessing one will be a mystery. lol

2) Space NK US should be coming out with their mega gwp bag (usually 30+ items) within the next week or two, and Space NK UK has a 12-count holiday cracker gwp (~30 items) that should come out around the end of October. Last year, both calendars were still available when these gwps launched.

Both calendars include:
Chantecaille Bio Lifting Cream + (0.34oz)
Eve Lom Original Cleanser (0.68oz)
Hourglass Caution Extreme Mascara (0.19oz)
Kevyn Aucoin Contour Duo Palette – Mini Highlighter/Medium Sculpting Powder (2×2.5g)

Kirsty

Sorry if dumb question – what’s GWP? Is it gift with purchase 🙂

Luna

It’s not a dumb question at all! And yes, it stands for gift with purchase. 🙂

Cindy

Yes, it is.

Cait

Luna,
I cannot thank you enough for this breakdown. I’m very much a fan of waiting for the GWPs and I loved the holiday crackers gift last year from the UK. I don’t want to buy both advent calendars so having this breakdown is invaluable. Thank you so much!!
Also – for anyone with family (or really good friends!) overseas, the UK calendar ships free internationally which is a huge help if you want to spoil someone far away this holiday season.

Luna

Yay! I’m glad it was helpful! 🙂 That’s so cool you got the crackers last year! I’m really hoping that the UK calendar is still available when they do the crackers again. 🙂

Callmeinge

Thanks for taking the time to post this, Luna! ❤
You’re the best! 👍😆

Luna

My pleasure! 🙂
