Ciaté, Benefit & Leighton Denny

Hi everyone :]

As you may have read in a previous post, Glamour are giving away Benefit 'luxe minis' with their July issue. So many gurus on here and Youtube have been talking about the amazing freebies with magazines this month and I think i've now been sucked in.

I'm not a massive magazine buyer, as I flick through the pictures then bin them :/ but as you can see, I may have got a little carried away today...

Harper's Bazaar - £4.20, Marie Claire - £3.70 and Glamour - £2.00
There aren't that many there. I think it's just bad as I have already bought Marie Claire once this week but loved the Ciaté freebie so much, I had to buy another. That's crazy normal... right?

Annnnnnnyway, I gave into the Glamour/Benefit offer as so many people rave about their products and wanted to know what all the fuss was about, so I managed to get the 'Bad Gal Lash' which was exactly what I wanted, even if it does have Fearne on the cover (don't even get me started).

I'm still trying to find my perfect mascara, so maybe this will be the one? Has anyone tried this yet/any blog reviews?

Marie Claire July issue next.

They're giving away a FULL SIZE Ciaté nail polish (usually £9) and I couldn't be happier as I love love love Ciaté polishes. I bought a copy of MC earlier in the week, with the polish 'Jelly Bean'...

It even has a hint of purple shimmer in it
It's such an amazing pink and after 3 days (including washing up & cooking dinners), still no chipping! So today I went searching for another one in the shade 'Bon Bon'.

It's a lovely nude/mauve colour :] swatches to follow. There is another shade, 'Purple Sherbert' but I'm not a massive fan of purple, so I won't be getting this one.

Lastly, Harper's Bazaar.

I've never read or even heard of this magazine but the July issue comes with a (fully size - 12ml?) Leighton Denny polish worth £11. I believe there are two others to get, one is a nude and not sure on the other.. purpley/pink perhaps? Anyway, the colour I picked up was 'Plush Pink'...

I can't wait to use this :] I've seen so many people love these polishes, so I'm excited to finally try one out myself. Again, swatches to follow.

Not bad freebies :]

I know that there are a few other magazines with free bits & bobs this month which I mentioned on my other blog, Miss Mooface.

Have you bought any magazines with amazing freebies this month?
