Today is the day. Yes, you guessed it, magazine day. July’s glossy magazines have a whole host of amazing “freebies” that is driving even the biggest glossy haters to the local newsagent. Who can really say no to a high end product for £3.80? Or travel sized products for £2? I certainly can’t. So today I ventured out to a couple shops and bought an armful of some of the most sought after literature out there.
Here are the magazines and goodies I’ve procured (so far):
Glamour magazine (£2 each copy)
With Benefit’s: Porefessional (one of my favourites), That Gal and Bad Gal Lash (travel sized)
With Body Shop’s Eye Definers in Black and French Navy (full size)
Marie Claire (£3.70)
With Ciaté’s Jelly Bean nail polish (full size) – which will go really nicely with L’Oreal’s Caresse in Impulsive Fuchsia
With Jemma Kidd Black Eyeliner (full size)
I know it seems crazy that I just spent over £20 on magazines and bought three of the same but look at the value for money. I have at least £45 worth of products – some are favourites, some are new to me.
I’m not against glossy magazines, I see them as entertainment rather than advise or social suppressors but that’s another topic for another time. I am slightly against the fact that there is a choice of products and thus sale numbers are inflated and inaccurate – placing value on the materialistic side of things rather than content – but who am I kidding? I’m still going to buy extra copies if I want the product, I’d be crazy not to.
So who else has purchased this months glossies to get their hands on these goodies?
