|Cosmopolitan UK Issue November 2012 £3.50|
I feel like I haven't done a Magazine Freebie post in ages! However, there are quite a few out at the moment and I will try to collect them all!
In this month's issue of Cosmopolitan, there is a free Missguided Lipsplash lip gloss available in 3 different colours: a peach (Peace), a light pink and a hot purple/ pink (I can't find the names of the other lipglosses anywhere! How annoying). You also get a free mini tube of Oral B 3D White, but I haven't photographed it. Cosmo had an issue a couple months a go with a free Missguided nail varnish which I really liked, so was quite excited to try this.
I chose Peace because I'm not the biggest fan of pink lipgloss as I think it looks weird on my lips. I usually go for more orange toned lip products, so thought this lip gloss would be great for everyday use. As you can see from the swatch, it's quite a neutral lip gloss, so will also add a nice 'your lips but better' shine to your lips.
To be honest, there's nothing amazingly special about this lips gloss and I definitely wouldn't spend £5 on it. It's just the average lip gloss that every girl has in their collection which can be thrown in your handbag for touch ups during the day. It's a little bit sticky and the smell isn't that great, the usual cheap plastic lip gloss smell. But I do like how it looks on the lips and gives them a nice shine.
I won't be picking up the other 2 lip glosses, but if anyone else has made a post about them, I'd love to see it! Also, if you have spotted any other magazine freebies, feel free to let me and others know in the comments below!
