I really shouldn't smile

I will be up for November thread

Royal Mail just text my lf is coming tomorrow!

I can’t wait for a Black Friday bargain for January ( if they exist, there are less lower end ones this year)

I'm trying to use up at least some of my unused GWP/past advent bits ready for advent opening.

Me too. I've got a lot from last year.

Has anyone seen the Nars calendar? I watched a video by Planning with Crystal last night. It's all lip products this year.

Marking my place! Still just have ASOS calendar but holding out for Black Friday deals.

I've had a look at the Grazia Glossybox 12 day advent which is released today but fortunately I don't want it. It's £125. I have four of the items already and am not interested in the three very high value items in the calendar. It's a relief because I've spent far too much money on fripperies lately. I've saved the look fantastic chest as a present to myself for my birthday next month.

I can’t get any more, I have 5! Plus I’ve already opened the Arran one

TeatimeAtCloppa Fri 23-Oct-20 09:00:39

I'm not convinced about one of the products in the Grazia. There were a few comments in Cosmetopia's channel that it is marked up to high prices when the ingredients are standard. I was all set to get this calendar but have changed my mind...a few products are also items we have seen again and again.

@MiaN - I will be up for November thread

Excellent. What one are you opening in November?

EatPrayYoga Fri 23-Oct-20 09:51:04

For those who wanted the No7 calendar there were loads in a store I went into yesterday

LaBrujaPiruja Fri 23-Oct-20 09:56:42

LF emailed back saying not to worry, I will get it before December 1st.
Not happy, I ordered back in September, why are they delaying shipping? Is there any logic in what they are doing? Mine still shows as ‘Order Placed’!

I'm the same (as is obvious from my many many posts on the last thread). They seem to be dispatching from last ordered to first ordered as I ordered mine on 4th September.

My LF calendar has just arrived in the post - it's huge and weighs an absolute tonne! So excited, I'm going to be sitting on my hands till December 1st!

OchonAgusOchonO Fri 23-Oct-20 10:11:00

Just got another email from LF saying:

We’re very sorry that you still haven’t received certain items from your order. Please be assured that we are handling this as a matter of urgency and will deliver the rest of your order to you as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, I'm not very reassured, particularly as they've stopped saying I'll have it by December. The last one said "you should have it before December".

Good to hear they are arriving for people.

Checking in. I’m trying not to look at the Grazia 12 Day AC. I opened my Arran one so I could split it up and put part of it in the hamper I’m making my Dsis, so I have two now that I’m going to open ‘properly’.

Housewife2010 Fri 23-Oct-20 10:29:31

TeatimeAtCloppa I know exactly which product you mean. 😉

It has really put me off. Apparently Housewife we shall be seeing a lot of this brand in boxes and calendars next year, like we do with Avant.😭

EatPrayYoga, I looked at the Nars calendar, and it’s a no for me. I actually got the Nars 12 days calendar last year and really liked it. (Opened it from 25 Dec has my post Xmas pick me up!) But it had a much better mix of products - eyes, lips, even a brush or two I think.

MiaN Fri 23-Oct-20 12:14:53

@EatPrayYoga I am thinking Space NK

I just checked when I ordered mine, which came on Tuesday this week. 2nd September. So not sure it's about order times. May be just random bad luck. ,🤞🤞🤞 for posters still waiting that it gets sorted soon.

Beauty advent calendar.net have an article on 'Top 20 multi brand calendars still available' beautyadventcalendar.net/top-20-multi-brand-calendars-still-available/ that might be useful.

I ❤ the Harrods green forest box design but don't want to go as far as buying the calendar. Might see if anyone here has it and would be looking to sell the box on after opening though. Will try Ebay too.
