Tanya Burr Deck The Halls Advent Calendar Review

Well what a great first 12 days of December where I got to open Tanya Burr's Deck The Halls Advent Calendar every morning. Today was the first morning without it and I'm pretty gutted, so I thought I'd do a quick review of the beauty calendar.

As you may have guessed from the previous paragraph the advent consists of 12 festive doors, each hiding an exclusive special edition product from Tanya Burr's beauty range. This is my first ever beauty calendar and I only decided to get it due to already being a big fan of Tanya herself, her products and the price of it. It was originally £25 but had £10 off in Superdrug at the time of purchase. For the price I think the quality is absolutely amazing and Tanya has definitely not skimped out!

Inside the box you get:

  • 2 nail varnishes - Carnival Nights and Under The Sea
  • 3 lip glosses - Macaroon, Candy Frost and Bewitching
  • 2 sets of eyelashes
  • 2 eyeshadow pigments - Creme Brulee and Starry Night
  • 2 nail files
  • 1 mirror
How amazing is all of that for just £15? The products are beautiful and perfect for the Christmas season. I decided to open mine during the first 12 days purely for the fact I can use them all for the Christmas festivities!

Under The Sea
Carnival Nights
The 2 nail varnishes are both glittery with Under The Sea being more silvery and green and Carnival Nights being a mix of bright sparks. These are perfect for layering over some simple nail varnish colours as it is not very opaque to use by itself.

Candy Frost


I'm sorry but I just need to talk about the new smell of Tanya's lip glosses. As if they didn't smell delicious already they now literally smell like vanilla cake mixture. I just want to eat it all.

These glosses have great pigmentation, smell great, feel buttery on the lips, smell great, aren't sticky and smell great (did I mention that already?!).

Creme Brulee

Starry Night
These are both very beautiful pigments with very little fall out. I've been wearing Creme Brulee pretty much everyday and have received lots of comments. Even my boyfriend Simon liked it!

The eyelashes add an extra special touch. I will be saving the thicker ones for new years eve and the other ones for Christmas day. I was already a big fan of her eyelashes already so was very chuffed to receive 2 in the pack!

Overall I think Tanya Burr has done an amazing job with the Christmas Advent Calendar and I would definitely buy it again if she does one next year and recommend you all do too!

Have you got a beauty advent calendar this year? Leave a comment below with any recommendations or thoughts.

Hope you had a good weekend.
