These beauty crackers are the perfect alternative to the Liberty advent calendar

Most beauty advent calendars sell out quickly, but Liberty London’s iconic version practically flew off the shelves. Now, the luxury department store has released a new Christmas must-have for those who missed out.

Beauty advent calendars are more popular than ever. This year, every beauty brand and department store under the sun released its own version of a calendar – and lots have already sold out.

But no beauty advent calendar causes as much of a commotion as the coveted Liberty Beauty Advent Calendar.

Retailing at £195, the calendar contains over £600-worth of the most sought-after products from its iconic beauty hall. When the calendar went on sale in October, page views on Liberty’s website shot up by a staggering 7,000%. And that’s not all.

Over 400 customers queued up outside Liberty London to purchase the beauty advent calendar

The morning of the calendar’s launch in-store, over 400 customers queued up around the block to get their hands on one. 

As a result of the scramble, the 2018 Liberty Beauty Advent Calendar became the London department store’s fastest-selling product in its 147-year history.

Unfortunately, the advent calendar has now completely sold out, both in-store and online. However, Liberty has just released a new product for those who missed out.

For the first time ever, you can now buy Liberty Beauty Christmas Crackers. The luxury crackers, which are exclusive to the department store, come in three iconic Liberty prints that will make your Christmas dinner table setting look even more beautiful. 

When the crackers are pulled apart (though they’re so pretty, we’re not sure we’d want them to break), you’ll find some of the most popular products from its beauty hall.

Read on to find out exactly what you can expect to find in Liberty’s Beauty Christmas Crackers. And be quick – if the stampede around the advent calendar is anything to go by, it’s fair to say these will sell out fast.

Lee Manor Liberty Beauty Christmas Cracker

In Lee Manor (£18), you’ll find the Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Canvas and an Essie Nail Varnish in Fishnet Stockists (both full-size).

Peacock Parade Liberty Beauty Christmas Cracker

Peacock Parade (£12) includes an Omorovicza Moor Cream Cleanser (30ml) and Susanne Kaufmann Oil Bath Winter (30ml).
