It’s a date avid beauty fans will likely already have in their calendar: the 2019 edition of the Liberty London beauty advent calendar is finally available to buy.

The calendar’s launch is a highly-anticipated event each year, with hundreds queuing outside the historic London department store from the small hours to snap up one of the limited-edition Christmas countdowns.

Shoppers can now buy the 2019 calendar online or directly from the London shop. But, whichever option you opt for, you’ll have to move quickly: in 2018, the calendar became the fastest-selling product ever for the luxury retailer, proving just how popular it is.

Some 400 customers flocked to the store to get their hands on the coveted item, with half the stock selling out before the doors opened.

It’s not a cheap purchase: the calendar costs £215, but contains beauty buys worth over £600.

Encased behind an illustration of the department store’s famous exterior, the 24 doors house a carefully curated collection of all the favourites found in Liberty London’s Beauty Hall.

Now in its sixth edition, the calendar features 19 full-size products, including a Diptyque candle, making it the most generous line-up to date. Expect to open doors to luxe brands including Votary, Byredo, Hourglass, Ren Clean Skincare, Diptyque and Le Labo.

Among the products are an array of exclusives including a mini Sam McKnight Lazy Girl Dry Shampoo in Liberty Print packaging, a limited edition Omorovicza Queen of Hungary mist and the new exclusive scent from Vihlelm Parfumerie, Peony Couture.
