Charlotte Tilbury Glittering Galaxy of Make-up Magic Beauty Advent Calendar, €185

Last month,  Charlotte Tilbury visited Dublin and showcased her festive beauty offerings to a crowd of enraptured Irish beauty editors. “As my son says, this is what you buy someone when you love them thiiiiis much,”  Charlotte Tilbury told us with her arms outstretched, and you can’t argue with that – the Glittering Galaxy of Make-up Magic Beauty Advent Calendar is worth €250 and includes 12 full size and travel size Charlotte Tilbury make-up and skincare icons.

The Diptyque Advent Calendar includes thirteen 35g candles (including Verbena and Roses), a 70g Pine Protector candle, metal pendants, the new Rose Water scent patch, skincare products and eau de parfum and eau de toilette.
