My First Beauty Advent Calendar ~ 2016

Hello everyone, welcome to 2017 on CosyCaitlin!

I thought I would kick off the new year on the blog with a review of my first ever beauty advent calendar.
With it being my first year with a calendar I wanted to get one that was within a lower budget so that I wasn’t investing lots of money in one to be disappointed. The one I got was the Tanya Burr Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas calendar. I bought this calendar back in November when it was on offer, so I only paid £15 through Superdrug!
With this being just a 12 day calendar I decided to space out the windows and only open one every other day, this meant that it lasted me 24 days and so all the way through December!

So now were in January and I’ve opened all of the windows and have 12 of the Tanya Burr Cosmetics products to try out. So what did I actually think about the calendar? I have to admit, although I love TBC, I was prepared to be a little disappointed with what I received. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I opened each window! The product quality was just as good as if you buy a product on its own, and it gave me the option of trying lots of new products without a huge price tag.

The calendar included:
~ 3x Nail Varnish
~ 3x Lip Products (1x matte lip, 1x lipgloss, 1x lipglass)
~ 2x Glitter Eye Pigment
~ 2x Glitter Eyeliners
~ Small Pocket Mirror
~ Nail File

I have to say that this calendar won me over! Next year (well, this year!) I plan on trying a couple of different ones and investing in slightly higher end ones too.
What kind of advent calendar did you have this Christmas?
