With December 1 now mere weeks away, it's time to tick all those festive treats off your shopping list – and at the top of our agenda this year is a luxury advent calendar. Happily, the annual Liberty beauty advent calendar has arrived, and we think it may well be the best one to-date.

Beauty advent calendars are now a behemoth category, with more and more brands offering their own each year, but the iconic London retailer's remains the most coveted of them all. No one does it bigger, better, or more beautifully.

Since this long-loved department store released its first calendar back in 2014, shoppers have queued the length of Carnaby Street for hours on launch day, hoping to score one before the shelves are swiftly stripped clean. (Luckily, today you can simply order one online, with no frosty fingertips or aching feet involved).

Here, see everything you want to know about this year's Liberty calendar, before heading to the checkout.

The Liberty advent calendar value

Annual customers won't be surprised to learn that the 2023 Liberty calendar is a grand treat, filled with a remarkable selection of brands and products, collectively worth over £1,040. There's even a (gold plated!) jewellery piece included for the first time ever. This year's calendar costs £250, and one extra-special box contains a £1,000 Liberty gift card to fuel that January wardrobe refresh.

As for the contents? Well, we've had a sneak preview, and can confirm they're even better than last year's, with plenty of blockbuster brands and a few new niche names too.

There are, of course plenty of stellar skincare products in store, from Augustinus Bader's unmatched skin-plumping cream to Sunday Riley's fan-favourite retinol oil. Votary's peptide-powered Night Star serum is a new launch already garnering buzz for the way it comforts and softens dehydrated skin, while 111 Skin's black diamond eye masks will come in handy before that big festive party. In the make-up realm, standout inclusions come from Byredo (whose lipsticks boast the creamiest, most sophisticated texture around) and Surratt, while haircare heroes arrive courtesy of Charlotte Mensah and Larry King.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Liberty calendar without a few industry-leading perfume surprises. This year, there are scented treats from cult-classic Vilhelm Parfumerie, new launch Bibbi Parfum and of course, everyone's favourite: Le Labo.
