Benefit Christmas | Advent Calendar: Days 1,2,3 & 4

Benefit Advent Calendar - Days 1,2,3,4 - Dino's Beauty Diary

This year, I couldn't wait for Christmas to start - if only for being able to tuck into my Benefit Advent Calendar! Back when me and Hannah were planning our blogger meet, we did a little shopping and just popped into Debenhams. Curiosity got the better of us, and before we knew it we had our names down on the list to get a Benefit Advent Calendar for £60. Win!

Day One (December 1st): So December 1st arrived and the first thing I did when I rolled out of bed in the morning was rip open the first door on my calendar. Needless to say, I was a little disappointed that on the first day, I got paperclips. Paperclips in a beauty advent calendar?! I thought Benefit would start with a bang really, not a flop. Anyway, after browsing twitter I noticed Benefit promising others it got better. Thank God.

Day Two (December 2nd): I was relieved to see this babe when I opened the door! I received the 'Ultra Plush' Lipgloss in the shade 'A-Lister'. A-Lister is a lovely bubblegum pink shade, and it's perfect for me to wear everyday. I'm glad that it's a neutral shade that I can get away with wearing to work. I've been dying to try Benefit's lipglosses for a while now, so receiving a sample was perfect for me!

Day Three (December 3rd): I'd already seen on twitter what lay behind door number 3 before I opened it. I've owned the 'They're Real!' Mascara for a while now, going through two tubes of the stuff. As I'm nearing the end of my current tube of it, I'm glad to have another one in my stash for when I run out!

Day Four (December 4th): Another item I already own, the 'Stay, Don't Stray' Primer. It's an amazing product, and I couldn't do my everyday makeup without it. The sample size of this is a bit smaller than I would have expected however! I would have thought with how much we paid, we'd at least get deluxe size samples...

The paper clips sound really disappointing especially as the first door of the calendar, Benefit shouldn't have even put something like that in there. Anyway the rest of the products look lovely! They're Real mascara is one of my favourites x

Beauty with charm

Wouldn't be too jealous, it's got quite a bit of stationary or let downs in it haha! xo

It keeps picking up then dropping back down to disappointment don't you think? haha xo

Paper Clips was probably the most disappointing thing they could have put behind the first door! Ughhh. I love They're Real aswell, use it everyday! xo
