The new issues of the monthly glossies have hit the shelves, bringing a fantastic crop of beauty freebies on the front covers. The December issues are usually the last ones of the year to feature free gifts, so do make the most of them this month if you can. I’m currently trying to restrain myself from buying them all, but I suspect that won’t last too long!
Glamour – choice of four Clinique products
The cheapest of the lot, Glamour will set you back just £2 and features four different Clinique products on the cover this month. You can choose from two of their Pop lip colours (Nude Pop and Cherry Pop), a mini moisturiser and a travel sized mascara. My top pick would definitely have to be the two lipsticks; the formula of these is so easy to wear and gives lips a decent amount of colour without being drying or too matte. Nude Pop verges on a nude pink shade and Cherry Pop is a brighter cherry red and if I’m honest, I will try to pick up both of these this month! They are minis, but look to be about half the size of a normal Clinique Lip Pop, so are incredibly good value.
InStyle – Eyeko Black Magic Mascara
There have been a few EYEKO freebies circulating this year, but I don’t think I’ve seen the mascara before, so it’s a welcome change from their eye liner range! This one is worth £12 and promises to give your lashes a clump free, dramatic look.
Elle – Benefit They’re Real tinted lash primer
If you fancy trying the brand new Benefit product weeks before it even hits the shelves, grab yourself a copy of Elle asap. There’s a trial sized sample of their new They’re Real Lash Primer, which is designed to give the lashes a hint of tint and prime them prior to you popping your mascara on.
Harper’s Bazaar – Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
It’s not often you get cult favourites from Estee Lauder given away for free with a magazine, so if you’re a fan of ANR, stock up now! The sample is a decent size (worth £11 in cost per ml), so would make the perfect travel size for any addicts, or a great way to sample it a low cost if you’ve not tried it before.
Will you be buying any of these this month?
