For beauty obsessives, the appeal of a giant makeup or skincare advent calendar is hard to resist and purchase-wise it can be considered a practical one too. Once you look past the steep price point, they are often almost always a bargain. Especially once you account for the retail price of every item individually and plus, they make the perfect holiday gift as there’s a little something for everyone, even if you don’t know the recipient’s taste.
