Every year, beauty brands release advent calendars filled with little surprises for each of the 12 days leading up to Christmas. A beauty lover’s dream, right? Well, not everyone’s thrilled when they come at high price tag and are filled with tiny products or... stickers. (Remember when TikTok lost it over the $825 Chanel advent calendar?) That’s why fans are getting excited about Kylie Jenner’s 2022 Kylie Cosmetics advent calendar, which dropped on Sept. 16 at Nordstrom and is now available on the Kylie Cosmetics website.
The gift set features nine full-sized products, two travel-sized products, and a headband for $180. The only two travel-size items the calendar are skin care items and, honestly, you can’t fault her for that — full-size skin care simply wouldn’t fit into the calendar. Based on the average prices of Kylie Cosmetics products, Jenner’s advent calendar seems like it might actually be worth the money. Interested in scooping up the Kylie Cosmetics 12 Days Advent Calendar Holiday Set? Below, you’ll find a breakdown of each item to see if it’s worth the cost — and the hype.

Here’s everything you’ll get in the Kylie Cosmetics 12 Days Advent Calendar Holiday Set, along with what each product would cost if you purchased it individually.
- Full-size Lip Liner in 808 Kylie: $14
- Full-size Matte Liquid Lipstick in 808 Kylie: $18
- Full-size Matte Liquid Lipstick in 402 Mary Jo: $18
- Full-size Matte Liquid Lipstick in 301 Angel: $18
- Full-size High Gloss in 317 Klear: $17
- Full-size Kyliner Gel Eyeliner Pencil in 010 Shimmery Brown: $15
- Full-size Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner Pen in 001 Black: $18
- Travel-size Coconut Body Lotion (1 oz.)*
- Full-size Lip Oil: $23
- Full-size Sugar Lip Scrub: $21
- Travel-size Clarifying Facial Oil (0.34 oz.)*
- Kylie Skin Headband: $10
*The travel-size Coconut Body Lotion and Clarifying Facial Oil are only available in full sizes outside of this collection. The full-size Kylie Skin Coconut Body Lotion costs $25 for 8 ounces. The full-size Kylie Skin Clarifying Facial Oil costs $25 for 0.7 ounces.
The full-size Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin products in this advent calendar set would cost you $172 if you purchased each one individually. Though, the travel-size products are trickier to compare to the full-size versions. At 0.34 ounces, the travel-size Clarifying Facial Oil contains about half of the product you’d get from the full-size version. The travel-size Coconut Body Lotion contains just 1/8 of what you’d get from the full-size version. Given that both of these products cost $25, they’re definitely worth more than the $8 remaining in the gift set’s total cost.
If you’re looking at price alone, this advent calendar offers major bang for its buck. Since Kylie Cosmetics products are known to sell out, if you’re a fan, go ahead and move on this set. You’ll be paying less than you would if you bought these products one by one and you’re guaranteed to have a very glam 12 days of Christmas.
