June 2013- Magazine Freebies

This month there some amazing magazine freebies that I want to share with you. As most of you will know magazines are a great way to try some great makeup and skincare brands for a much lower price. I recommend that if you plan on picking up more than one magazine that is the same so you can try all the free products (please say I'm not the only one who does that) then use self service or buy them separately as you get some strange looks and I've had people in the past asking if I meant to pick up more than one. Anyway onto the freebies. 

This month Marie Claire are giving away some Avon products. As far as I'm aware you can only get Avon products from a representative or online you can't buy them in the shop. At least you can't in the UK. So they are giving an Avon eyeliner in Black, a brow pencil in Dark Brown and a lipstick in Smitten Red. I have included swatches of the products below so you can decide which one to get or you could get all 3 like I did. I've only used the products a few times so I can't give a full review of them but I can definitely say that they are worth picking up. I especially like the eyeliner and lipstick. Also the magazine gives a free sample sachet of the Avon BB cream.

I'd also like to mention that next month they are giving away a Ciat√© mini polish and Caviar kit which will include paint pot in Cookies and Cream and a Caviar polish in Shooting Stars. This comes out on June 6th. 

Instyle magazine were giving free Nails Inc polishes this month. There are 3 colours to choose from You're A Peach, Totes Pink and It's Red Babez. I decided to go for the red as Totes pink looked very similar to Elizabeth Street that came in an issue of Glamour magazine. The peach colour didn't appeal to me as I'm not a massive fan of peach colours. I haven't used this yet but I'm sure it will be good.

Next month they are giving a Neal's Yard Remedies moisturiser. I have a hand cream by the same brand which I got in Marie Claire which I really like so I can't wait to try this moisturiser. 

Probably the most exciting freebie is this mini Benefit They're Real mascara. I have been wanting to try this mascara for ages but at £19.50 a tube, it's a lot of money of money to spend on a mascara. This is a great opportunity to give this a try. I have used this and I really like it. It made my lashes look amazing, I'm even tempted to buy the full size but I'll have to use some of my other mascaras first. 

Next month Elle are giving away some fake tan in 3 different shades to choose from. I won't be picking this up however as I don't like fake tan. 

Did you pick up any freebies this month?
