I've Overdone it...



Today you may be aware that in the UK Glamour Magazine are giving away mini sized Benefit products,
there is three to choose from and three different magazine covers - my favourite is Eva,
anyway the three samples to choose from are :

Bad Gal Mascara worth £10 
That Gal (primer) worth £15
The Porefessional worth £10

I tried many a newsagent to get my copies with no avail but struck it lucky in WHS
where I took all the copies bar one that they had - I don't like Bad Gal Mascara at all,
it stings my eyes and smudges like a biatch!

I'm going shopping tomorrow and if I see a few That Gal copies I will pick them up as I would like a few
more and at £2 a pop you can't really complain plus they are so travel friendly!

For those who are thinking what the heck is she going to do with all those copies of the same magazine?
Well when I buy more than one copy of a magazine I donate the spares to my local doctors and
dentist which are more than accostum to me and my magazine purchasing ways haha!

Did you pick up any Glamour's to get the goodies?
Glamour magazines cost £2 per issue!

  4. Oh so your the crazy lady pinching all the mags! haha I managed to pick up a couple today and the Marie Claire Ciaté paint pot. You are dead right about the travelling though. I might pick up a couple more Porefessionals to stash away for holidays.

  7. I could only get a hold of Porefessional, but I'm going on a That Gal hunt tomorrow. I'm not fussed about the mascara at all - i like the blue version better. Might buy Red as well since they have a Jemma Kidd mascara as their freebie! Xo

  22. I decided to pick up 'That Gal' and also 'Bad Gal lash'. I think the Mini Mascaras are so much better than both the primers, they last a lot longer as well.

  28. this looks like a good freebie!! i love the idea that you give away the spare copies of the magazines, its very thoughtful of you! x

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm out of the UK right now so I don't know what product I got in my subscriber copy... I hope it's the PoreFesionnal! :)

    I also have lots of magazines and extra copies, I usually give them to a fashion student, but dentists and medical clinics is a good idea too!
