Glamour Magazine Benefit Makeup Freebies!

Well this month we’re blessed with an abundance of makeup goodies from various glossy magazines! These are always such “bargain buys” because for around £2 you can get a full and travel sized products worth £10 and more!

July’s issues in my opinion have really out done all the other months in terms of extras (I can’t remember the last time this many magazines were giving things away!) However Glamour magazine is by far my favourite, with offerings of 3 travel sized products from Benefit – POREfessional, That Gal and Bad Gal Lash.

Naturally I’m not the only one who wanted to get my hands on these, and I was pipped to the post on  collecting all 3 copies! I did however manage to pick up 2 copies, with Fearne Cotton and Eva Longoria on the cover and they came with Benefit’s POREfessional (7.5ml travel size) and Bad Gal Lash (4.0g travel size).

POREfessional is a balm which aims to reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines.

Bad Gal Lash aims to add volume to your lashes and make them look fuller.

 Both products are something which I’ve wanted to try for a long time, but admittedly my wish list is quite lengthy so I hadn’t got round to buying them both quite yet…

I can’t wait to try them out! If all goes well I may even purchase the full sized products, but we’ll see. 😉 I’ll probably also end up buying the 3rd Glamour magazine with Kylie on the cover and getting Benefit’s That Gal Primer – if I can get my hands on it!

Other magazines with freebies are:

INSTYLE – Body Shop’s Eye Definers in Black and French Navy (full size) or Big and Curvy Mascara

MARIE CLAIRE – Ciate Nail Polish (Bon Bon, Jelly Bean and Purple Sherbet)

RED – Jemma Kidd Black Eyeliner or Mascara (full size)

So what magazines have you picked up this month? Any favourites?

Love Sophia xo

    Love Glamour magazine. I never fail to grab a copy every month but I love them even more this month for bringing back the Benefit freebies they always come out with every year. For a make-up junkie and beauty blogger it is pure heaven 🙂

    I picked up 2 Porefessionals and 1 Bad Gal Lash mascara. Like you I’ve been wanting to try them out for CENTURIES. I wanted to try That Gal Primer aswell but I can’t find it anywhere. Oh well. I’m so impressed with the 2 products I got though. I had my doubts about Porefessional at first. Can it really help reduce the appearance of those little creatures found on my face ie pores? Hmm I doubt it but I was blown away with the results after my first application. A little goes a long way to covering my pores around my cheeks. = L.O.V.E I’ll definitely pick up another copy with Porefessional so I basically have a full size amount . Nice and clever eh? I’ll still purchase the full size version as soon as my travel size versions run out which won’t happen anytime soon. Score. As for the mascara it lengthens and volumizes really well making my lashes look really luscious and seductive.

    God bless Glamour for being so generous and kind 🙂

      Oh that’s a really good idea! I should stock up on the products too 😀 I swatched POREfessional on my hand and my skin feels so nice afterwards! I’m looking forward to seeing how well it actually ‘minimises pores’. I’ve been testing Bad Gal Lash mascara out so expect a review soon. 😉 I agree, Glamour magazine are always so generous with their freebies. 🙂 xx

      Yeah the Primer one seems quite hard to come by! I’ve not seen any yet, only the POREfessional and Bad Gal Lash so far! If I see it I’ll try and pick you up a copy 😀

    I picked up InStyle with the Body Shop Big and Curvy mascara. I’m going to do a review of it in a few days 🙂

    Hi all!
    I can’t find the That Girl primer either 🙁 I look in all the shops where I live on the Isle of Wight and nowt – boo! Going to ask my lovely boyfriend to keep a look out!

      Seems like a lot of girls are on the hunt for “That Girl” primer! I actually haven’t seen any in my local shops! 🙁 Hope your boyfriend can find you a copy! x

        I can’t find that primer anywhere in the Portsmouth and Fareham area. I’m pretty frustrated to be honest and have tweeted to Glamour Mag and Benefit with no response which I think is pretty poor.

        I reckon they have distributed less copies of the mag with the primer because it’s the dearer item. x

        Oh no that’s terrible 🙁 Being such a big publication and brand you’d think they would both respond fairly promptly! You’re right though, the primer was the most expensive item of the 2 which is probably why it’s so difficult to get hold of! Hope you get a response from either Glamour or Benefit soon! x
