Updated Magazine Freebies, Models Own Sparkle Collection & The Glamour Beauty Box!


Today's weekend post is a bit of a mix of things that I wanted share with you. 

When shopping yesterday I spotted even more magazine freebies than I had mentioned in my previous magazine freebie post for June, so below is an updated list of the free gifts available with UK magazines. Also after my slightly negative review of the Models Own Sparkle Collection a few of you asked to see the polishes over a black base coat so I have swatches of the whole collection over a black nail polish. Plus Latest In Beauty have teamed up with Glamour Mag to offer an amazing box for £14.95.

June seems to be a huge month for freebies with pretty much every magazine offering something! Plus a lot of the magazine are a special price. 

Marie Claire mag (£2.50) - Ciate mini Caviar Duos in Shooting Star and Cookies & Cream
Glamour mag (only £1!) - Models Co products, choice of - Mascara, two lipglosses, eyeliner and lip liner all worth £15-16 each
Harpers Bazaar mag (£4.20) -  Leighton Denny Nail Polish Duo in 6 shades, worth £11 each.
Company mag (£2.50) - Choice of 3 makeup bags

You can find details of the freebies in Red, Traveller, Elle and InStyle magazine for June in my previous post here.


In my review of the Models Own Sparkle Collection here I mentioned that the flakie top coats come to life when applied over a black nail polish base. So I thought I would do some extra swatches to show this. 

My personal favourite when used over a black base is Aqua Splash as I love the colour of the flakies as they seem the most even compared to the other nail polishes. However I do like that Pink Paradise contains glitter, though it is hard to see in the swatch above, but it does add something to the top coat. Also Golden Shore looks really pretty over the black. But as you can see there isn't that much difference between them all, so I'd still recommend only picking up a few polishes from the range if you do like the look of them and not the entire collection. 

All nail swatches contains one coat of the Sparkle Collection Top Coats. You can purchase the collection from Models Own website here or find them in select Boots stores. 


Finally another great beauty box from Latest in Beauty! I really feel LiB have upped their game this year and are coming out with some great boxes and collaborations with other companies. 

The Glamour Beauty Edit Box consists of 9 products for £14.95 with free p&p here.The box contains - Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel 10g (really love this stuff), Benefit The Porefessional Primer 7.5ml, L'Oreal Super Liner Gel Intenza full size (one of my favourite gel liners!), Revlon Nail Polish full size, John Frieda Frizz-Ease Serum 25ml, The Vintage Cosmetic Company Tweezers, Jinnylash Strip Eyelashes, Stila Lip Glaze 1.5ml, Batiste Dry Shampoo 50ml. 

The box has a great mix of high street and well known brands and is definitely worth the money! I own too many of the products to warrant purchasing this but it really is an impressive box that I'm suprised hasn't sold out yet.

 Hope you all have a sunny weekend! 

Fee xo.
