I just picked up a few little things today and I thought I would show ye :)
I also got a bottle of nail polish remover. It's the shops own brand and it smells like a nuclear plant there are that many chemicals mixed in it. I can't get my normal one so this has to do me for a month or two. It cost €2.02.
Glamour magazine were offering 3 benefit products for you to choose from. I picked up the porefessional because there is so much hype about this product but it costs €30 for for a "full size" bottle. The sample is 7.5ml (or .25 US fl oz) and the "full size" is 22ml (or .75 US fl oz). It's ridiculous for the price but for €2.94 I got a decent sample and the magazine is great for a little flip through so it's all good :D
|Just to show the actual size of the sample. It's teeny!|
In marie claire they were offering 3 Ciaté polishes.I picked Purple Sherbert because it was early and they hadn't restocked the shelf yet so it was either that or a pink one. I actually wanted Bon Bon which is a nude-y polish but I have so many nudes already and this is a pretty colour so It'll do me nicely :)
Marie claire cost €5.45 which is fairly dear for a magazine. Ciate polishes retail for €10.50 on their website so this is a pretty good deal.
This a light purple polish that seems to be quite similar to Barry m Berry ice cream but from swatches it might have a slightly darker finish.
I also got a L'Oréal paris hair expertise EverPure shampoo and conditioner sample. I'll give them a go!
I own one other Ciate polish and I got this last year with the same magazine. It's called My fair lady and it is a light pink polish.
You can see that they have since changed the front of their polishes including the writing and the label. I'm glad they kept the little bow because it does look adorable and it gives the polish a more high end look I think.
Below you can see the changes up close.
The thing that I really like about these magazines is that they tell you whats coming free with the next issue :D it gives you time to plan :P
Maire Claire: A choice between 3 mascara's 1) Avon Super extend extreme mascara (2) Avon Super Curlacious mascara (3) Super Shock Max mascara. Goes on sale July 5th. I won't be buying this issue. No interest in mascara whatsoever :P
Glamorous: A choice of four balance Me skincare items.1) balance Me Daily essentials balancing face moisturiser (2) balance Me extra care wonder eye cream (3)balance Me daily essentials pure skin face wash (4) balance Me treatments rose otto intensive lip salve. Goes on sale July 5th. I'm intrigued by the eye cream and the lip salve I have to say. For the price I think this is a really great deal.
Any of ye pick up these freebies? Apparently this isn't really common in America which shocked me considering the huge market it has for such products. Also I have updated the "future posts" tab so please have a look and tell me what ye would like to see next :) I'm currently writing up my nail polish collection so if ye have any requests for my next nail swatch then comment below. It should be up within the hour.
