A close up of the Sephora Advent Calendar for 2023.

Year after year, PureWow editors wait with bated breath for the Sephora Advent Calendar to hit shelves. Not just because it's filled with *a ton* of Sephora collection beauty steals for under $50 (at a $93 value!), but also because it never fails to sell out at lightning speed—so we want to make sure we get our hands on it before it goes. And if you're as much a beauty fanatic as we are, so will you. Perhaps you've had one in the past and are looking forward to this year's makeupskincare and bath surprises, or maybe you haven't yet had the pleasure of discovering its endless goodies. Whatever the case, beauty-lovers are in luck because the retailer's advent calendar for 2023 has officially dropped, and it's totally worth snagging before the holiday rush.

As with any advent calendar, the point is to discover new surprises each day in the weeks leading up to Christmas. This year's Sephora Collection calendar has 24 beauty-themed gifts tucked into numbered cardboard packages, making it easy to follow along day by day. Then again, you might be tempted to unwrap everything all at once (long before December, no less), because essentials like the refreshing Sephora Collection Cucumber eye masks (typically $4/pack) and the mini Big By Definition mascara (typically $12 for a full size) are too good to wait for.

Not to mention, this lip pencil in Classic Red ($6 for a full size) and this cream lip stain in Always Red ($15 for a full size) are also included, and they can perfect your pout for all those Christmas parties you have coming up. According to one lip stain reviewer, "It's a perfect statement color for nighttime, especially during the holidays. The color lasts long, and even though it is a stain, it stays moisturized. [I] love it!"


As for us? We'll be playing by the rules and enjoying the fun of unwrapping products like the All Day Hydrator hyaluronic acid moisturizer ($18 for a full size) and aloe vera-packed hydrating cleansing wipes (usually $3/pack) each day to get into the holiday spirit.

Again, since it comes filled with $93 worth of beauty products but costs just $49, it's also a great (and affordable) gift idea for all the fellow Sephoraholics on your shopping list this year. But remember, the clock's ticking!
