Battle of the Beauty Advent Calendars {SPOILERS}

It's about time beauty advent calendars started coming out! A twist from the traditional 'chocolate/candy-a-day' advent calendars, each day is a different beauty item. In all honesty, I'll probably do what I do with my chocolate calendar and end up peeking at the next day's... :P
