I received a few goodies from magazines which I think is a great way to try out products without spending a fortune and feeling like you’ve wasted money. If you don’t like the product, at least you have the magazine! I only buy magazines I know I’ll like – there’s no point in double disappointment.
First I received a tube of Goji Berry lip gloss from Neal’s Yard Remedies. This was in Marie Claire magazine. It claims to smooth and protect and is made with organic orange oil and white tea. Sounds yummy!
Glamour Magazine was offering a selection of Model Co products (as well as 25% off in H&M) and my copy had a “Lip Enhancer Illusion Lip Liner”. It’s a nude lip liner which claims to suit all skin tones. The box says it helps to create the perfect pout giving the illusion of naturally fuller lips. It has a sharpener in the lid which is pretty handy!
Finally, on subscribing to Elle magazine, I received three full-size Elizabeth Arden Products. I now have a tube of 8 Hour Cream which I have used before so I’m glad I received it again. It is a skin protectant and has a wide range of uses. Although it is technically skincare, it’s great make-up as well. Do you remember the glossy eyelid trend? That is where you use 8 Hour Cream! It also says you can use it to shape brows.
The actual make up came in the form of Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Red Door Red 02 which is an amazing true red in stunning gold and silver signature red door packaging. It’s simply too beautiful to use-I just like to look at it and hold it! I also received a full size Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing mascara in black 01.
Did anyone else get make-up from magazines this month? Did you collect all of the Model Co products from Glamour? I would try but I’m on a cosmetics spending ban for lent!
