Magazine Freebies: September Issues 2012

Sunday, August 05, 2012

I went to Tesco yesterday and I picked up two magazines - Elle and Tatler, the later I had never bought before and I only bought it this time because of the freebie! There were a couple of other magazines that I wanted but they didn't have any freebies! Firstly, the most exciting freebie...a mini version of the new Lancome Star Mascara (£21)!
The only reason I bought the September issue of Tatler (£4.10) is because of the free mini Lancome mascara - and it is the mini 'Star' mascara! I am was really surprised that there were still copies of the magazine because this freebie is fantastic, in my opinion, especially as it is Lancome's newest mascara! The wand is really unusual, it is tapered so it is narrower at one end and a lot wider at the base of the wand. The wand is looks like a wide triangle from the front but from the side it is really quite thin - it is a really strange wand and I thought it would be difficult to use but it really isn't! I used this mascara today and I adore it! The wand is really nice (if a little strange), it is so easy to use, it is really black and it makes my lashes look fuller, thicker, longer and curled (even though I didn't curl my lashes!). Overall, an amazing mascara from Lancome! I will buy this mascara when I am at duty free later this month, although I wish it was waterproof!
The second freebie I received is included with the September issue of Elle UK magazine (£3.90). The freebie in question is the Jemma Kidd Make Up School I-Glamour Define Eyeliner (£14)...phew. I have only tried this once and it doesn't apply very well to the lids but it blends/smudges out really well and it lasts really well on the skin. Overall a good eyeliner and a great freebie! Although I probably wouldn't buy it again. 


  1. I tempted to pick that mascara one up although £4.10 for a magazine is ridiculous!x

    1. I know and I wouldn't have bought it if it didn't have the mini Lancome mascara included! :) x
