It’s Christmas tomorrow and I cannot wait for you to unbox the final product from our Advent Calendar! Trust me, it will have been worth the wait. In the meantime, though, let’s look back on the last three incredible products you’ve received, starting with today’s treat.

Day Twenty-Four: Nails.INC– Golden Days Ahead Nail Polish

Nails Inc Advent Calendar

You didn’t honestly think that we would curate an Advent Calendar that didn’t include a nail varnish, did you? Well, today we’ve treated you to a newly-released nail polish by Nails.INC.

Boasting a highly-pigmented metallic formula, this gold nail polish is perfect for the festive season. Better yet, it features Nails.INC’s patented brush and iconic long-wear formula which not only makes it really easy to apply but ensures that it will stay put for up to 10 days! Gorgeous gold nails, here we come!

Recreating The Nails.INC Salon Experience

Did you know that Nails.INC is an award-winning nail brand that is renowned for its luxury nail bars and immaculate manicures? While you may not have a manicurist on call, you can recreate the same professional-quality finish by following Nails.INC’s simple three-step ritual:

  1. Start with clean, dry nails that you have filed, shaped and applied cuticle oil to. Then, apply one layer of base coat polish (Nails.INC’s Superfood NailKale Base Coat is a great choice) and leave to dry.
  2. Next, apply one coat of your Golden Days Ahead nail polish onto both hands, then repeat.
  3. Finish off the look with a top coat (Nails.INC’s 45 Second Top Coat with Kensington Caviar works wonders). Leave your nails to dry, then admire your gorgeous manicure.

Whether you want to flaunt a shiny manicure for Christmas day tomorrow, or fight off the upcoming January blues with some golden nails, this polish has got you covered!

Day Twenty-Three: Steve Laurent – Cherry Lip Tint

Steve Laurent Lip Tint GLOSSYBOX

Let’s face it, most lipsticks aren’t formulated with wintery weather in mind. When you’ve already got dry and chapped lips, the last thing you want is to be applying a matte lippy. That’s when tinted lip balm becomes your saving grace!

Both hydrating and packed full of pigment, it adds some great colour to your pout while also keeping your lips moisturised. It’s a good thing that we treated you to Steve Laurent’s Lip Tint!

The Hybrid Lippy Of Your Dreams

A combination of balm and gloss, the Steve Laurent Lip Tint that was nestled inside box 23 is ideal for this time of year. Its moisturising formula not only soothes sore, dry lips (a must when the weather keeps yo-yo-ing between cold and mild as it has lately), but it also boasts a lovely cherry hue.

Sweep the creamy formula onto your lips (you can either use a clean finger or a makeup brush) and it will deliver serious shine with a gorgeous cherry tint. Feel free to re-apply it throughout the day as necessary.

A Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Brand

You may have recognised Steve Laurent’s statement rose gold packaging from last year’s Advent Calendar (it included a gorgeous lipgloss). As you all loved it so much, we thought we’d introduce you to even more of their products. They're great quality and 100% cruelty-free so you can’t really go wrong!

If you love this lip tint, why not explore the other shades from their collection? After all, variety is the spice of life.

Day Twenty-Two: Kat Von D Beauty - Tattoo Liner Liquid Eyeliner

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner Eyeliner

When it comes to liquid eyeliner, there’s a reason why Kat Von D Beauty’s award-winning Tattoo Liner is a bestseller.

The Holy Grail Of Liquid Eyeliners…

There are so many reasons to love this eyeliner! Not only is it vegan and cruelty-free, but it boasts a highly-pigmented, waterproof and smudge-resistant formula that lasts all day. Trust me, you’ll wonder how you ever used anything else.

My favourite thing about it? It has a thin, ultra-precise brush tip that makes it so easy to apply. If it’s fine and exact lines that you’re after, you just need to use very light pressure as you sweep it onto your skin (ideal when you’re drawing the outline of your wing). Then, to create thicker and bolder lines, simply add more pressure and accentuate your look. The formula glides on effortlessly, so you don’t need to worry about skipping or pulling, regardless of how much pressure you use.

Insider Tip: Don’t forget to shake your eyeliner before using it and make sure that you store it tip-down so that the brush is always soaked and doesn’t dry out.

…Brought To You By Kat Von D

You’ve no doubt tried (or at least heard of!) Kat Von D Beauty’s makeup before. It’s a go-to brand for vegan and cruelty-free products that was founded in 2008 by animal activist Kat Von D.

Committed to creating high-quality products that deliver the same (if not better) results as brands that use animal-derived ingredients, KVD Beauty have developed a stunning collection of makeup that is both vegan and cruelty-free. Bold, highly-pigmented and long-lasting makeup that is kind to our furry friends? Yes please!
