The other day, the exact day being monday, my hubby and I took a trip to ASDA as my ears, and eyes, caught hold of a lovely freebie with ELLE magazine. A full size Thick and Fast mascara by Soap and Glory. Since I couldn't pass up this chance of trying and owning this mascara for just £3.90 we headed straight down do I could get my well polished mitts on it. Of course, as it always happens, my eyes fell onto another magazine, Glamour, which unbeknown to me had plenty of freebies inside and only cost me £2.00 for the smaller version. Bargain!
So without further ado here are the magazines and their abundant of freebies;
While I was browsing through Glamour in the car I came across three freebie samples that literally put a massive smile on my face. The first was the Chanel Perfection Lumiere a foundation I have really been wanting to try for a wee while now, Rimmel London Wake Me Up foundation and a face wash/face mask which is unbranded until 01/03/12 and thus being known as the Big Skin Care Mystery (I will write a brief post about this and a small review of the sample asap)
With ELLE I just thought the Thick and Fast mascara was the only freebie but low and behold my eyes fell on another Rimmel Wake Me Up freebie sample. I am so happy and really excited to try these new products to see if they work before splurging out on them.
To top if off nicely both magazines have perfume 'rub here' pages, lots of fashion, makeup, hair and house ideas. I can see where £6.00 worth of pennies will be going each month ...
The Thick and Fast mascara is actually a nice addition to add to my four regularly used mascara collection. I've been wearing it all week, well minus monday, to see if fairs well and so far so good. Its got a lovely bristled brush that doesn't hold too much formula when pulled from the container and applies to the lashes nicely. The formula is drier than what I'm used to but as I class myself as a patient person, my husband of course would say different, I am more than happy to work with it to get the look I want. I will be doing a full review on this mascara with pictures very soon. I want to give it a longer test run so I can give it a full on review to see it fairs during work, everyday life, house work and of course the weather.
So have you purchased this months Glamour or ELLE magazine? What magazines would you recommend for me? Let me know in the comments below
