Magazine Freebies May 2013 (June 2013 Editions)

Who doesn't love a magazine freebie?! I try to read the magazine too, but generally for me the magazine comes with the freebie rather than the other way round! Currently I'm only aware of the Marie Claire and Elle freebies out in May, so if you know of any others, please leave me a comment and I will add it to this post with a link to your blog.

First off, the one I am most excited about! On 1 May, the June edition of Elle magazine will be hitting shops with a BENEFIT THEY'RE REAL mini mascara worth £9.50. The magazine costs £4.00, so you will be saving yourself £5.50 - a complete no brainer if you ask me! I seriously hope I manage to get my hands on one because this magazine is guaranteed to sell out quickly! Thank you to Floral Danielle for the heads up on this!

Marie Claire is out on 2nd May with a choice of three freebies - Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner, Avon Supershock Brow Definer and Smitten Red Lipstick, together worth £20.50. Every magazine will also come with a free sample of Avon's BB cream. I'm quite tempted by the gel eyeliner and the red lipstick, especially as I am yet to brave a red lippie and this seems like a purse friendly option! Marie Claire costs £3.60.


Thanks also to Mademoiselle Lala who has commented below to say that Instyle comes out on 2nd May with a choice of three Nails Inc polishes! The shades to choose from are peach, red and a baby pink. If they are as good as last year then I can't wait (last year they gave away one of my favourite ever colours called Bluebell!). 

If you're after something to treat your body rather than your face, the lovely Sandra from Beauty Balm tweeted me to say that Harper's Bazaar will be giving away a REN Rose Otto Body Cream!

Will you be picking up any of these magazines?

  2. ooo they're good freebies! I have the Avon gel eyeliner and it's really good, so pigmented and glides on so, so smoothly. I love it! Think i'll be going for the lippy and maybe the brow definer too!
