Selfridges Beauty Lovers Selection Box Calendar 2018 Ships WW: Spoilers

For some reason I cannot fathom, the Selfridges Beauty Workshop offering for 2018 - named the Beauty Lovers' Selection Box - contains 19 beauty products! Not 24, not 25, not 12, but 19.
Even if you go by the 2018 Advent date - December 2 - you still get 22 days of Advent this year. So why 19? Why not round it off and make it 20 at least?
This, therefore, is a beauty box and not an Advent Calendar at all. Nor is it being marketed as an Advent Calendar. Strange, since they had a "beauty workshop" 24-day Advent Calendar for the exact same £70 over the last three or four years. 
This will remain one of those unsolved mysteries, and one that will continue to perplex me through the year. They had 24 products in the last two years' advent calendars - here is the 2017 Selfridges Beauty Workshop Calendar. The 2016 Selfridges version is here. So why chuck five this year alone? We shall never know.
Thankfully, there's nothing perplexing about the contents - all top notch! A whole 11 of the 19 products inside are makeup, and there's a full eyeshadow palette!

Just when you conclude that this is not a calendar, the packaging says otherwise. Look at that box! Not a top-open beauty box a la LookFantastic, Cult Beauty, Glossybox, Space.NK, and so on. This SCREAMS calendar.

Verdict, and where to buy the Selfridges Beauty Lovers Selection Beauty Workshop Box 2018

I like the look of the Zoeva palette, with that gorgeous purple - makes me glad I skipped the Norvina palette. I also like that there are two lipsticks, and a whole 11 makeup products in here. A fabulous selection of products, and a great buy for the price. Lovely curation of brands, and I'm especially thrilled about the Zoeva palette and blending brush.
Gripe? 19. I can't stop it, sorry. WHY is there a 19-product Beauty Workshop box at all? Give us 24 or 25, Selfridges!
Also, this one is VERY similar to the Cult Beauty Autumn Goody Bag 2018 - see here - which also has the Zoeva palette, and similar brands. If you prefer buying something off Cult Beauty and getting the Goody Bag of 18 products free (which is what I have done), then that might be a great idea. 
The Selfridges Beauty Lovers Selection Workshop Box 2018 is available here for £70. They ship worldwide tracked. Do hurry - these usually sell out in a jiffy!

Meanwhile, Advent Calendars fans may enjoy my take - including full spoilers - on more than 40 different beauty advent calendars available this year
