THE PIP BOX BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR 2019 UNBOXING, REVIEW

It is their second-ever beauty advent calendar, and it contains 20 full-sized products and four travel sized products from 21 brands, and NO product repeats from the last year. That's the way to go!
Meet The Pip Box. They are a vegan, cruelty-free monthly beauty box that ship worldwide. When I heard they were doing an advent calendar, I snapped it up, and guess what? It sold out while still on pre-order! Never managed to launch!
Despite having a beauty box, they assured me that there would be just the TWO products that had appeared in the beauty box - from Jan/Feb 2019. All other products in this advent calendar, I was assured, would be spankin' new. LookFantastic - and other advent calendars guilty of a bazillion product repeats - are you listening?

Scroll down for the unboxing and review of The Pip Box cruelty-free, vegan beauty advent calendar for 2019.

CULT BEAUTY BEST OF 2019 GOODY BAG LAUNCHES ON NOV 1 WORLDWIDE

Cult Beauty's Best of the Year gifts with purchase are always known for their colossal value, the number of full sizes, and the super curations, and 2019's GWP is no exception. With a total worth of £325 and 23 products, this set is yours FREE when you purchase for £180 on site.

There are a whopping NINE (Cult Beauty claims there are 11, but I only count proper full sizes - not discovery retail sizes - but I've counted the bag, and don't count the voucher) full-sized products in this set, and a £15 gift voucher to boot. I can't even! The Cult Beauty Best of 2019 Goody Bag is available here - run, don't walk!

YESSTYLE KOSMETOPIA K-BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR 2019 SPOILERS, LAUNCH NEWS

For those interested in the YesStyle Kosmetopia Advent Calendar 2019, here's what to keep in mind:
    Here are the full spoilers and price breakdown of the YesStyle Kosmetopia K-Beauty Advent Calendar 2019, a Korean beauty advent calendar that ships worldwide.
  1.  It launches on Wednesday, 9 October (not pre-order, the actual launch), at 08:00GMT or 00:00PST from here.
  2. It WILL sell out.
  3. It is, without a doubt, the cutest and girliest beauty advent calendar we've seen this year - ALL products inside are full-sized. Yes, 24 full sizes. You read that right.
  4. Try via desktop as well as the app, on different devices - download the app if you haven't already (and login beforehand). There's no telling which will crash first.
  5. Go to the website rightaway (not app), and enter your shipping and payment details already. You can delete all the deets a few hours later. That way, all you have to do is add to cart and confirm order, without wasting time entering those details while checking out. This is how I placed my order on the pre-order date (September 25) before the app crashed.
  6. Use an influencer code - not necessarily mine, which, for reference, is RENU144; any other code you find on their Instagram or elsewhere will do - to get an additional discount at checkout. Or feel free not to waste time on this step! 
  7. You may also want to try a discount code such as ADVENT2019 - this isn't supposed to work on the advent calendar itself, but I've heard it worked for some during the pre-order.
  8. There will be at least four or five more restocks, on forthcoming Wednesdays, so if you DO miss this one, there could be another shot - but don't leave it all for the last minute!
  9. GOOD LUCK! Fingers crossed for you - come and tell me the good news xoxo

Summer 2019 Makeup Giveaway Results

Summer 2019 Makeup Giveaway ResultsThe results of the Summer 2019 makeup giveaway are here, and we know who's getting the full-sized set of Revolution Beauty goodies. I've been a bit late thanks to all the advent calendar posts, plus, I went in for a root canal, the dentist injected a local anaesthetic (lidocaine), and I had an allergic reaction to it right there on his chair! Cue all the roids and antihistamine shots all over again. I'm undergoing tests to find out which local anaesthetic I'm NOT allergic to, and we'll resume root canal with that. Till then, you'll see me with a wonky tooth.
Anyway. Giveaway news. The next one is very special, and rather different from the rest. It will commence in about a week or 10 days or so, depending on when I can record the video for it without showing you too much of my wonky, crownless tooth.
This giveaways results are below. Drumroll....

CULT BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR 2019 SPOILERS, CONTENTS, WORTH BREAKDOWN

Deep breath! And again. One more. Phew.
It's the MOST exciting news ever - CULT BEAUTY ARE HAVING THEIR FIRST-EVER BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR!
Gosh. I can't keep still for the excitement!
So this one has far more products than all the rest. That is because the 25th drawer has a whole TEN PRODUCTS in there, including a £25 gift card. The calendar costs £195, and, believe me, the full-sized products inside are ALONE indeed worth more than that, as you will see below. The net worth of the calendar is claimed to be more than £680.
The packaging is very pretty and girly, rather unlike the other Christmassy reds, greens, navy blues, deep purples, golds, silvers, and whites. This one is a Summery pink-orange-purpley-blue combination on the outside, and opens up to an aquamarine set of drawers inside. And the contents are different as well - NO Eve Lom Cleanser, Omorovicza Mist, NARS Orgasm mini, and so on!
Teaser before you scroll down - THERE ARE THIRTY-FIVE PRODUCTS IN THIS ADVENT CALENDAR (and I've made a bazillion spelling mistakes in this post because my fingers are trembling).

Space NK The Experts Edit Autumn 2019 Gift With Purchase Available Worldwide

Space NK's Autumn 2019 gift with purchase is here, and it is titled the Expert Edit - it contains products chosen by long-serving Space NK employees. There are 27 products in here, with a net worth of £285. The gift is yours with purchase of products of £175 and above from Space NK, and ships worldwide.
This GWP does NOT include so many repeats, including the Eve Lom cleansing balm, the Nars Orgasm blush, the Omorovicza mist, and so on. Yes, there are a couple of repeats from previous goody bags - the REN Instant Firming Beauty Shot is the main one here - and there are no full-sized products at all. But then this is something that's free, a little extra, with purchase, so if you're hauling anyway, or even getting an early start on your Christmas shopping (December is just three months away, people!), this is a nice incentive, and I prefer doing my shopping when there's a GWP around. I also like the inclusion of some relatively recent launches.

Here are full spoilers and contents of Space NK The Expert Edit goodie bag, an Autumn 2019 gift with purchase that ships worldwide.

Cult Beauty The USA Goody Bag For Autumn 2019 Now Available Worldwide

With the end of Summer come all the gifts with purchase, and leading the charge is Cult Beauty, with a 23-piece offering of beauty goodies originating in the USA. The Autumn goody bag is yours free with purchase of products worth £140 from Cult Beauty, and includes a £15 gift card. The contents inside are worth more than £220, and the goodies ship worldwide.
Eight products are makeup, and there are five mask products - I would call this the Mask Goody Bag! You also have some very recent launches on Cult Beauty, and the fabulous Glow Recipe.
To be honest, this curation is something that I find unexpected - I was expecting other products, other brands in here - Omorovicza, Huda Beauty, and so on. This is one set of very new brands, for a gift with purchase.

Here are the full contents and spoilers of the Cult Beauty The USA Goody Bag For Autumn 2019, a gift with purchase now available worldwide.

Fortnum & Mason Beauty Advent Calendar AVAILABLE ON PRE-ORDER NOW: Spoilers, Contents

They've started coming in. The first to hit that checkout button is Fortnum & Mason. Last year, they did their first beauty advent calendar, which yours truly foolishly did NOT buy, and then Mum offered to sponsor it (she HATES buying Christmas presents for anyone, because apparently people ought to choose their own gifts, and send her the bill), by which time it had sold out.
This year, I promised myself I would make no such mistake, and it is indeed my first 2019 beauty advent calendar - though it will probably be the last one to arrive.
Details first. £195. Net worth of more than £750. 25 products inside, of which 13 are full-sized. Pre-order is open now, from here. Shipping commences only from October 25. Boo! How on EARTH are people expected to wait that long? I swear I'll have worn out half my teeth by then.
Fortnum & Mason ship to most countries around the world. HOWEVER. Some exclusions apply, depending on where you live, so given that this advent calendar contains perfumes and a candle, it may not ship out where you live, so do check that out first.
