NYX Lippie Countdown Advent Calendar

If you know me then you know that holiday content is my favourite content to produce all year. A few weeks ago I was at the NYX Halloween Party in Toronto, and was lucky enough to leave with a few goodies. Today I am sharing the NYX Lippie Countdown Advent Calendar with you!
I really really really don't like to post images that are direct from the brand on my blog. I actually took a whole bunch of beautiful images of this product.... and then my SD card broke and I have been unable to recover the photos. However I did not want to not post this blog post because I was so impressed by this set! I just bought a new SD card so stay tuned for more photos soon!! 

Retailing for $65, the NYX Lippie Countdown Advent Calendar contains 24 different mini lippies, ranging from mattes to glosses, from nudes to bolds, and all points in between.  I think that this set really is a great variety set -- there is something for everybody! With that in mind I probably would not actually recommend buying this for your friend who already has too much makeup. Rather, I think this would be an excellent gift for somebody starting off their makeup collection who is really open to trying new shades. I love the idea of gifting this to an older sibling who still wants to participate in the advent calendar fun, but who might feel that that the chocolate or toy based advent calendar that their siblings are opening is a bit too young for them.

This set contains four matte lipsticks, three liquid suedes, two "simply" crayons, four lip lingeries, three butter lipsticks, three soft matte lip cremes, two intense butter glosses, and three butter glosses.

1. Matte Lipstick in "Eden"
2. Liquid Suede in "Soft-Spoken"
3. Simply Vamp in "She Devil"
4. Lip Lingerie in "Push Up"
5. Butter Lipstick in "Seashell"
6. Soft Matte Lip Creme in "Paris"
7. Intense Butter Gloss in "Berry Strudel"
8. Butter Gloss in "Crème Brûlée"
9. Matte Lipstick in "Up The Bass"
10. Lip Lingerie in "Corset"
11. Soft Matte Lip Creme in "Sāo Paulo"
12. Matte Lipstick in "Indie Flick"
13. Liquid Suede in "Vintage"
14. Butter Lipstick in "Root Beer Float"
15. Butter Gloss in "Raspberry Tart"
16. Lip Lingerie in "Embellishment"
17. Simply Red Lip Cream in "Russian Red"
18. Liquid Suede in "Stone Fox"
19. Soft Matte Lip Creme in "Copenhagen"
20. Matte Lipstick in "Shocking Pink"
21. Lip Lingerie in "Exotic"
22. Intense Butter Gloss in "Tres Leches"
23. Butter Gloss in "Sugar Cookie"
24. Butter Lipstick in "Ripe Berry"

Of all the goodies included in this advent calendar, I am most excited about Day 1: Matte Lipstick in "Eden", Day 8: Butter Gloss in "Crème Brûlée", Day 11: Soft Matte Lip Creme in "Sāo Paulo" and Day 19: Soft Matte Lip Creme in "Copenhagen".

I think that this collection does a fantastic job at getting a mix of shades and textures. The only thing that I think could make it better would be if the lippie for the 25th was a full sized red lipstick, or really, full sized anything.

At $65 CAD you can't really go wrong. The lucky recipient will end the month off with an impressive collections of shades. From there they can always pick their favourites and purchase full sized goodies in the new year.

Of course, the biggest challenge will be only opening one per day. Seriously, I think it would be easier to resist the chocolate!
