Your first look at the (divine) 2019 beauty advent calendars

Oh hello, Jo Malone!

The weather might be glorious for now but, let’s be honest, British summertime will be over in five minutes and it’ll soon be time to crack open your beauty advent calendars. In the immortal words of Bruce Almighty, the 2019 offerings are already looking B-E-A-Utiful.

In our opinion, getting a make-up, skincare or even scented candle treat every day of December is a far better way to get in the festive spirit than chocolate. (Not that we don’t love chocolate too, obvs.)

But the sad truth about these boujie beauty buys is that they sell out faster than the blink of an eye. That’s why we’ve rounded up your first look at the 2019 beauty advent calendars and their respective waiting list and launch date details, so you can ensure you get your hands on that coveted Liberty or Jo Malone calendar. Ready? Let’s go.
