The freebies offered by magazines this month are amazing! Last week I mentioned Glamour's nail polish and voucher giveaway. This week Elle are giving away a Benefit lip gloss in 3 (I think it's 3) different colours.

Benefit's CORALista ultra plush lip gloss retails at £14.50 on the website. Elle is £4 so not overally cheap for a magazine but it has a wealth of beauty and fashion, and with a free Benefit lip gloss you can't really complain. 

There are six shades available, aside from the ones offered in Elle. There is dandelion (soft pearly pink), dallas (dusty rose), sugarbomb (shimmering pinky nude), bella bamba (sheer bright watermelon) and hoola (shimmering golden nude) alongside CORALista. I've used mine a few times already and I've noticed how soft the gloss is. It's not too sticky either, which is a massive problem I have with glosses. 

The squeeze tube means it's easy to apply to achieve a perfect finish. The packaging is also really pretty and eye catching - this is what drew me to the magazine in the first place. My only concern is that it might be a bit too sheer, and I'd prefer more colour but with 5 other shades on offer you can probably find one that's suitable. 

Let me know which shades you picked up or any other magazine freebies worth checking out. 

much love, 


  1. Ooo I never thought about the freebies in magazine, I didn't think they were ever worth anything! You have proved me wrong! :)
