Free Benefit Make Up With Glamour Magazine

Hi everyone :)

I was super excited to hear (via Martin's Money Tips) that this months issue of Glamour magazine comes with one of three Benefit freebies. 
Being the make up junkie I am, I bought three magazines so that I could get one of each products.
The products are as follows:

"the POREfessional"
You will already know of my lust for this if you have seen this post. I couldn't believe my luck when I saw it came with the magazine.
7.5ml worth £10.

"that gal brightening face primer"
I have never actually heard of this primer but I'm super excited to give it a go, especially if its anywhere near as amazing as the POREfessional.
7.5 ml worth £15.

"BAD gal lash mascara"
This has possibly the biggest brush I have ever seen and I can't wait to give it a go- it looks like it will give super voluminous lashes.
4.0g worth £10.

I am so impressed that each magazine is only £2 yet you get such high quality make up, together worth £35, for free. Also, there are three different covers available this month: Fearne Cotton, Eva Longoria and Kylie Minogue which I think is a nice touch as it gives a bit of variety for those who want to collect all three. 
I completely think this months issue is worth the money so if you haven't already got yours, go! Run and get it before they all go, which I expect will happen very quickly.

I'll perhaps do individual reviews on these products in the coming weeks, let me know how you get on with yours!


  1. You're so lucky to have found 'That Gal' cant find it anywhere -_- x

    1. Awk I'm sorry to hear that :( I think just because I went out first thing and no one where I live really knew about the offer yet xx

  2. I live in Belgium but I managed to find the magazines anyway! I really went to every paper shop in the city hoping for the best, everyone was looking at me like; 'Ohh, she just wants free stuff'. Haha! :D

    1. Wow that is really impressive! Oh good for you definitely keep that up- don't worry what people think I love freebies! And that's really good that you found them in the end xx

  3. Ah I got the POREfessional as I use the larger one and this dinky one will be good for travelling. I was lucky enough to get That Gal which has been on my 'to try' list for a while. I have heard it is hard to come by so I do suggest people check out smaller independent newsagents as you are more likely to find them there as the bigger stores seem to have been cleaned out! You can always rely on Glamour for good samples!

    1. I tried it at the Benefit counter one day and was so eager to buy it but couldn't afford it so this was a life saver! Yes they're perfect for travelling :) Yes I found two of mine in a small newsagents and one in Superdrug- I didn't even have to try ASDA! I love magazine samples it gives you such a great opportunity to try new things- most of the time I buy the magazine purely because of the freebie with it! xx

  4. I really wanted to try That Gal but they didn't have any left in the shop I went to, so I got the Bad Gal mascara instead. Think I'll have a hunt round the shops tomorrow to see if I can find the others ones anywhere!

    1. Aw that is a real shame. Perhaps try what the girl above is suggesting- searching smaller independant newsagents? I still haven't tried the mascara but I'm super excited to :) Good luck with your search don't give up!xx
