It's been a bumper summer for magazine freebies! Tatler gave away mini Essie nail polishes, Glamour gave away Benefit eye brights, it sticks and BAD gals and then Lindsey Kelk's novel I heart New York.
Over the weekend I picked up In Style and chose the Lip & Cheek Stain from The Body Shop rather than the gloss. Although it's great to get a freebie, I'm not into In Style magazine anymore and so only bought it for the product! Sadly it's a dud. It's not even as good as my Primark tint. This one leaks sometimes so I had hoped it would be a handbag friendly version. It showed up pretty pigmented when I swatched it for the photo below but having used it since, it's very watery and needs to be reapplied a few times to build up a decent colour. It works better on cheeks though. I wish I got the shiny lipgloss they're also giving away instead.
Cosmopolitan is giving away this dating advice book by Zoe Strimpel - for you The London Paper lovers, she was the lass who chronicled her dating exploits in the weekly LondonLove feature. I've read a review on this book and had considered buying it (I really love cheesy dating books!) so I'm delighted to get it for free!
A nice little haul all in all. Maire Claire is also giving away a selection of cotton bags. I'm passing on this one as I never use these types of free bags and already have about 84!
Has anyone read...
I enjoyed it but not sure if it's worth reading the Hollywood and Paris versions?
