The First-Ever Armani Beauty Advent Calendar Looks Glorious...and Expensive

Santa, baby: We know it’s only August, but we already know what we want.

Armani Beauty just announced their first-ever beauty Advent calendar, and we’re dying to know what’s behind every little red-and-gold door. The calendar will contain 24 of the brand’s bestselling beauty products across their makeup, skin care and fragrance categories, including travel-size Armani lipsticks and a baby-sized Si perfume. Christmas can’t come soon enough!

The Advent calendar contains two full-sized products, while the other 22 are miniatures of the brand’s cult faves. The Lip Maestro in #400 (the brand’s famous liquid lipstick in classic red) and the Eyes to Kill Stellar Eye Shadow #2 (a light shimmery gold for all those holiday parties) will both come in full-size versions.

According to Bazaar UK, the calendar launches in early October at Selfridge’s for a whopping £249 (aka $300), but no word yet on when it will hit stateside.... The full-sized Lip Maestro usually retails for $34, while the eyeshadow is normally $35. That’s $69, plus the other 22 travel-sized products ...which would average out to about $10 each (aka a steal, if you ask us).

We’re writing our list and checking it twice and begging that this isn’t just a U.K. thing. Otherwise, we may have to borrow the sleigh and reindeer for a rendezvous across the pond.
