Everyone loves a good freebie, and when I found on InStyle magazine were giving away 3 mini Benefit products I couldn't wait to get my hands on them! The 3 products up for grabs are: Bene Tint (a rose lip/ cheek tint), Cha Cha Tint (a mango lip/ cheek tint) and Sun Beam (a golden highlighter). I picked up the Bene Tint and Cha Cha Tint as there were no Sun Beams left. I'm not too fussed because I rarely use highlighters anyway. But I am really excited I managed to find the tints because I've wanted to try them both for so long! Each mini freebie comes with 4ml of product, which is a third of the full sized product. As I picked my magazines up in Tesco, I only payed £2.50 (£3.80 elsewhere) for each magazine so this is a fantastic deal!
The tints are like mini nail polishes as they come in glass bottles and have a brush applicator. I remember once in year 7, my friend was applying a tint to her lips and I nearly freaked because I thought she was putting red nail polish on her lips haha! I love how the minis are exactly the same looking as the full sized products so you can get a true feel of the products before you go and buy the full size.
The Bene Tint is a lovely pink rose colour which I think will be great for Autumn and Winter for extra rosy cheeks. The Cha Cha Tint however is probably best for Summer because it gives an orange/ coral flush to cheeks and lips. They both apply really well and are pigmented, but you do have to work fast with them as they dry quickly.
As well as getting these freebies with the magazine, if you turn to page 169 you will find that if you bring in that page to any Benefit counter/ boutique, you can get a free mini Bag Gal Lash mascara! So basically 2 freebies per magazine! This is a great magazine freebie set and I recommend you picking it up!
