Magazine Freebies Reviews and upcoming freebies in Glamour

Ok so over the summer, a lot of the mags offer free gifts. I don't usually pick up many, as I'm just not that impressed. This year however was a different story, probably due to the fact I was now blogging I was just more aware of what was on offer. Also enjoyed reading MakeupSavvy's monthly round up to get an idea about which ones I wanted to get.

So I thought I do a quick round up of my favourites from the summer.

First up is Jemma Kidd Lip gloss in Candy.

Love this, its a gorgeous colour and has a great smell (so can stand any funny smelling glosses). There was a choice of 3 colours with the other two being peach and red. I have a slight problem with pink glosses so had to get it and for only £3.60 for the mag, it was such a bargain for a £14.00 product.

Next is The Body Shop's cheek and lip tint.

This was free with Instyle and I'm not sure about it really, the colour is good but I do prefer my Benetint. Also the tube just leaks as you can see in the picture. Overall a bit disappointed.

I also picked up the Neal's Yard Orange Flower moisturiser, with Red magazine which I reviewed

Glamour have had a great summer of freebies - the best being the Benefit It Stick, Eyebright and BadGal. Amazing!!!
-Picked up three of the It Sticks, favourite concealer ever!

Oh and obviously there was the amazing Diet Coke and Nails Inc - absolutely the best giveaway of the summer for me. Picked up all the colours and loved them all, however London is my all time favourite nail varnish (I wear it nearly every week).
So that leads me perfectly on to the upcoming freebies with Glamour mag. In the December edition, out on the 4 November you can pick up one of four Nail Inc colours:
  • Hampstead Heath - a dark burnt red.
  • Warwick Avenue - a nude pink.
  • Savile Row - a dark plum.
  • Jermyn Street - greige, a soft taupe colour.
What do you think?

I'll probably pick up them all apart from Hampstead heath - not really my colour.

I am a Glamour subscriber and I received Warwick Avenue. I little disapointed as I was hoping I would receive any other colour but that one, as I have many light pink ones.

Totally agree on the Jemma Kidd gloss, and the Benefit offer. We had great magazine freebies this summer!
