September Magazine Freebies

September’s glossies are out already, packed with Autumn/Winter trends – browns, furs and boots. NOOOOOOOOO IT CAN’T BE THAT TIME ALREADY! I’m sure I say this every year but is 2011 the fastest year yet?

As I hang on to the last days of summer (i know, what summer) these fab magazine freebies might just help cusion the blow.

First up, pick up a copy of September’s edition of Cosmopolitan magazine £3.50, with Fergie on the front and bag some free eyelure false lashes.  The special edition flasies were designed exclusively for the magazine and would retail for £5. They’re long, full and sex kitten esque, can’t wait to try them.

With this month’s Marie Claire magazine with Anne Hathway on the cover you get a choice of Ciate Nail Pots. There’s two colours to collect, a nudey beige and a dark plummy purple, worth £9 each. I love the Ciate nail pots, they’re really good quality, but I must admit I’m not overly excited about the shades, who knows they might look better in the flesh. Marie Claire, £3.60 is out now.

If Ciate ain’t your bag, grab a copy of Elle Magazine £3.80 with Kirsten Dunst on the front and choose from three free Mavala nail polishes. The shades are – The Elle Red, The Elle grey and The Elle Orange BUT be warned these areonly 5ml bottles.

Finally, with this month’s issue of Red magazine £3.80, you can get your hands on a bottle of Balance Me body wash, worth £8. There are two to collect – rose otto and super moisturising.
