Sephora Advent Calendar Series: #3 Bejewelled Beauty Chest Advent Calendar by Charlotte Tilbury

When it comes to luxury products, it’s safe to say that everyone wants a great deal or a heavy discount that doesn’t hurt your wallet maybe as much. At Sephora, at least, it’s pretty rare for luxury brands to be steeply discounted — with the exception of specific products not doing well. That being said, many find great value when one or two products from luxury brands are featured in advent calendars. How about an entire advent calendar from one of those brands? This year, Charlotte Tilbury has created a 12-piece advent calendar that costs a whopping $200. Do you get what you pay for in this luxury set?

For $200, it seems like everything within the calendar would be full size; however, that isn’t quite the case here. Being a luxury brand, having the full size of every product inside of the box would cross $200 significantly. Let’s take a look at what they do offer:

  • 1 Hollywood Beauty Light Wand (Full Size)
    • This item retails for $38.
  • 1 Color Chameleon (Full Size)
    • This item retails for $27.
  • 1 Matte Revolution Lipstick (Full Size)
    • This item retails for $34.
  • 1 Lip Cheat Lip Liner (Full Size)
    • This item retails for $22.
  • 1 Rock ‘N‘ Kohl Eyeliner (Mini)
    • The mini version of this item is not available for individual purchase (for calculation purposes, we will consider it to be half the price of the full size, which costs $27).
  • 1 Pillow Talk Mascara (Mini)
    • This item retails for $15.
  • 1 Goddess Skin Clay Mask (Mini)
    • This item retails for $15.
  • 1 Charlotte‘s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir (Mini)
    • This item retails for $29.
  • 1 Charlotte‘s Magic Cream Moisturizer (Mini)
    • This item retails for $29.
  • 1 Wonderglow Primer (Mini)
    • This item retails for $25.
  • 1 Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray (Mini)
    • This item retails for $20.
  • 1 Supermodel Body Highlighter (Mini)
    • This mini version of this item is not available for individual purchase (for calculation purposes, we will consider it to be half the price of the full size, which costs $65).

The total value of the Bejewelled Beauty Chest Advent Calendar is about $310, or $110 more than the sale price. This advent calendar already seems like it holds great value. That being said, there are mostly mini versions of products within this set, but that is to be expected with most advent calendars. Although $200 is a very high price tag, you do get more product than you pay for. That is, of course, considering that you use every product within the calendar.

Final Verdict: Worth it!

Folks, it seems like we have our first beauty advent calendar of the season that is actually worth it! Again, although this is one of the priciest makeup advent calendars out there, Charlotte Tilbury is a luxury brand who sells their products at a high price usually. Now, whether or not the quality of the products justify the price is entirely subjective but just in terms of prices and what the set gives you, this calendar is absolutely worth it. Although several items are minis, they supposedly still contain many uses. Additionally, 25% of the advent calendar is full size, which is not something that many brands commit to. For Charlotte Tilbury and luxury brands in general, this calendar is a great way for consumers to test out most of a brand’s popular products at as much of a discount Sephora offers.
