When you write about beauty advent calendars as much as I do, it's easy to get blasé about them. But there are some advent calendars that make you go 'wow', and you know it's going to be the ultimate treat. That's how I feel about the MAC Cosmetics Box of Tricks advent calendar.
It features everything you could ever need to get ready for the festive season, including lipsticks, blush, eyeshadows and mascara. Priced at £135, it's worth over £340. Do we need to repeat that? £340!
