The holiday season is upon us and I decided to make a list of the best makeup advent calendars 2020.

During Christmas 2020, you’ll see many makeup brands coming out with advent calendars.

If you’re looking for the latest in beauty advent calendars, look no further than this makeup advent calendar 2020 list.

What is an Advent Calendar?

Makeup Advent calendars 2020 have come a long way from when they were first introduced.

If you’re wondering what an advent calendar is to countdown the days until Christmas! They usually start on December 1 and end on December 24.

There are 24 mini gifts that are included in advent calendars. They do make a great way to kick off the 2020 Christmas season.

The reason why makeup and beauty advent calendars are so great is because you get to try a variety of products for one low price. Usually the value of the goods is less than what you would normally pay if you bought each item separately.

This post will go into detail on the best makeup advent calendars 2020 so you can select which ones will be best for you!

Sephora Wild Wishes Advent Calendar

Sephora has one of the best selections for Christmas 2020. The Sephora Wild Wishes Advent Calendar contains only Sephora brand products. For each of the days, December 1 to 24 you can try a different Sephora product.

The Sephora Wild Wishes Advent Calendar for 2020 is only $60 Canadian with a value of $96. Also when you get it during the Sephora sale, you can save 20% off on that $60! So in that sense it’s really worth it.

My thoughts on this advent calendar for 2020 is that it’s not the best deal I’ve seen. Some of the products seem cheap and things that you’ll likely lose throughout the year.

Reasons to buy:

  • If you are into self care, there are a lot of great products for pampering
  • If you buy it during the Sephora sale it’s REALLY worth it

Reasons not to buy:

  • You have to love the Sephora brand a lot to justify this
