This year I didn’t have a chocolate advent calendar, but instead I had the Sephora ‘Once Upon a Castle’ makeup, bath, skin care and accessories 24 days advent calendar. This advent calendar was limited edition, as I cannot find it on the website with the product prices or details. So just keep in mind that this are my opinion on the products and the info I have on the products was found on the back of the box. I received this advent calendar from my mom, dad and sister all the way from Italy. My sister and dad had a trip to Italy and this is the present they brought back for me and I AM OBSESSED. 

I’m going to take you through the whole 24 days and what I got in the advent calendar. 

Unfortunately you can not buy this in South Africa since we don’t have a Sephora. My dad and sister bought this advent calendar for 39 euro and they bought it in Sephora – Rome. 

Day 1 – Sephora Peony Fizzing Cube

This is like a mini bath fizzer and it smells gorgeous. You just pop it into the bath while running the water and then this will make your bath smell nice and make your skin feel soft and cleansed.


Day 2 – Sephora Eye Pencil To Go (09 – Intense Black)

 This is a miniature eye pencil which is perfect for having in your handbag or travel makeup bag since it is small. I don’t really wear eye liner, but I’ve recently learned how to apply it and might give it a try.


Day 3 – Universal Brow Freeze (01 – Incolore Clear)

I honestly had to Google what this was and what is does and this is what I found on the Sephora website: “This easy-to-use pencil distributes brow wax evenly in one quick sweep, offering weightless results and long hold for natural-looking brows”. Sounds very interesting and I’ll use it, just not sure if I’m going to use it the right way.


Day 4 – Sephora Color Hit Nail Polish (L43 – It Girl)

I love nail polish and buy new ones every month so I was very happy to find a nail polish in this advent calendar. The color I got is a deep red color and it’s a very festive Christmas color and I cannot wait to wear it on Christmas Day!


Day 5 – Sephora Lip Liner To Go (03 – Classic Red)

 I don’t really wear lip products, except lip balm. Maby I will use this some time when I really feel like a red lip. I was watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 6 and Kourteny was wearing a red lip and it looked stunning and I actually thought I should try it out for this festive season.


Day 6 – Sephora Cotton Flower Fizzing Cube

This is the same as the Peony Fizzing Cube and I cannot wait to use them in my baths.


Day 7 – Sephora Cream Lip Stain (01 – Red)

 Like I said before I don’t really like to wear lip products, but this red is gorgeous! The only negative thing of  this product is that it comes off difficult and because it is red, it leaves a little stain when you wear it the whole day.

Day 8 – Sephora Express Eye Makeup Remover Wipes (Cornflower Extract) 

 I have not yet used these wipes, but I think I will try them out on Christmas Day when I remove my makeup. I will give an update on the wipes on my InstaStories. (@karlamuller22)


Day 9 – Sephora Blueberry Creamy Body Wash 

I really enjoy the smell of the body wash, but I cannot really say I know how this makes your body feel since it is only 7,9 ml which is not enough for me to wash my body with. But overall it seems like it can be a nice product that even I would buy.


Day 10 – Sephora Instant Nail Polish Remover Wipes

 I love the idea of this so much! I haven’t used these nail polish remover wipes yet, but I think this is going to be much better than buying a whole bottle of nail polish remover and cotton wipes. I also think this might remove the nail polish quicker and better than normal. I’ll have to test it and let you know!


Day 11 – Sephora Color Hit Nail Polish (L03 – Sugar Coated)

This is one of my favourite color nail polishes. I also like that it is in a miniature size, so when I have to take it along with me it will fit in anywhere.


Day 12 – Sephora Nail File

Everyone loves finding a mini nail file in their advent calendar, since it’s the only place you would get one. I won’t go out and buy a mini nail file so this is a really good one to keep in you handbag or emergency bag for when your nails are in need of a file.


Day 13 – Sephora Stickers

To be honest I was a bit disappointed when I saw the stickers, but most advent calendars have them inside. They are very cute and I’m sure I will find something to do with them.


Day 14 – Sephora Invisibobble (Clear)

I love these and they are the only things I wear in my hair (accept scrunchies and elastics). They are comfortable, affordable AND doesn’t make pony tail bumps in my hair.

Day 15 – Sephora Sticky Notes 

Again I was disappointed with this, but I’m sure I will find a job these cute mini sticky notes. They are just a bit tiny though.  


Day 16 – Sephora Makeup Sponge

I was really happy when I got a makeup sponge, since I really needed a new one and I apply my foundation with a makeup sponge and not a brush. I’ve tried this one and I really like it. I prefer the bigger bold beauty blender, but this one works just as good.

Day 17 – Sephora Charcoal Nose Strips 

I am really excited to try these nose strips. I’ve wanted to buy nose strips but I keep on forgetting. I also know that Sephora are famous for their face masks, so I know these will work their magic.

Day 18 – Sephora Removable Matt Eyeshadow Pan (No.207 – Lazy Afternoon)

This shade is perfect to use as a transition shade. It’s also a nice size and the packaging is also very cute.

Day 19 – Sephora Matt Blush (No.09 – Shame On You!)

LOVE THIS BLUSH SO MUCH. I don’t wear blush, but recently I started to work it into my makeup routine and I am so happy I got this blush in my advent calendar. I also like that it’s not a very bright pink and is gives you a nice rosy cheeck and not a MAJOR blush overdo. I also really like the packaging.

Day 20 – Sephora Pocket Mirror

This is super cute and when you need a pocket mirror really quick you have one. I’m really bad at keeping pocket mirrors in my bag and when I need one I never have one. Hopefully I will keep this one save and use it since I really like it.


Day 21 – Sephora Cherry Blossom Fizzing Cube

Another one, but I don’t mind at all. This fizzing cube might be my favourite because I love cherry blossoms. They are so beautiful and I totally want to go to Japan now and see them. Maby when I throw this in the bath it will feel like I’m in Somei Yoshino laying underneath a cherry blossom tree.


Day 22 – Sephora #LIPSTORIES Lipstick (No. 09 – Ladyrinth City) 

This must be my most favourite product in this whole advent calendar. It is a lipstick from the #LIPSTORIES collection. This color is also a very beautiful color for the winter and I cannot wait to wear it. It smells gorgeous and looks gorgeous as well. I definitely want some more colors and will make a plan to get them here in SA.

Day 23 – Express Eye Makeup Remover Wipes (Cornflower Extract)

I have not yet used these wipes, but I think I will try them out on Christmas Day when I remove my makeup. I will give an update on the wipes on my InstaStories. (@karlamuller22)


Day 24 – Sephora Invisibobble (Blue)

I love these and they are the only things I wear in my hair (accept scrunchies and elastics). They are comfortable, affordable AND doesn’t make pony tail bumps in my hair.

Wow, I really got some amazing things inside this advent calendar and now I’m excited to use them! You can also go on my Instagram (@karlamuller22) and see how I opened everyday on my ADVENT CALENDAR HIGHLIGHT.

Thank you for reading & have a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

All my love-
