Glamour Magazine Benefit Freebies – Bad Gal Lash + PoreFessional Review.. ♥

I am not a frequent Glamour magazine reader, but when I heard that they were offering mini Benefit beauty products in July’s issue, I thought I should give it a go! I also have never properly tried a Benefit product, so I was excited to get my hands on some.

They are offering sample sizes of That Gal, Bad Gal Lash, and PoreFessional, one in each copy of the magazine, which costs only £2. I picked up a PoreFessional primer and Bad Gal Lash mascara.

Both samples came in pretty packaging; little printed cardboard boxes. The original sized Bad Gal Lash is 8.5g and costs £16.50. The sample size is 4ml and therefore is worth approximately £7.75. The original POREfessional Primer is 22ml and retails for £23.50, so the 7.5ml sample is worth £8. So you are getting the products at a great price at only £2 each!

The POREfessional primer is used to quickly minimise the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother skin. It also will make your make up stay put for longer. To use, you apply the balm alone, under or over makeup. I haven’t yet got round to using the primer properly on my face, but after swatching it, it is a very silky and lightweight balm. It is slightly translucent and tinted, and it feels very, very smooth on the skin. After testing it on the back of my hand, I am very excited to try it out on my face because it feels like silk! It also contains a Vitamin E derivative, known to protect skin from free radicals.

The Bad Gal Lash is a black mascara for full, voluminous lashes. The famously big, bodacious brush coats lashes with a super black formula.

I tried out the mascara on my very fine and fair eyelashes, and I am very impressed. The mascara is not at all clumpy, and the brush has so many tiny bristles that coat each lash in a thin layer of mascara. Then you can build up the volume as you wish.

Considering how short and fine my lashes are naturally, I am very pleased with how Bad Gal Lash has made them look. I am now the newest member of the Benefit cosmetics fan club, and I can’t wait to try out more of their products!

    The POREfessional is a staple in my makeup routine I love it. I picked up the sample sized too as it will be perfect for travelling. Benefit Bad Gal also used to be a fave, I now opt for the waterproof version as an evening mascara so gave this sample a miss! I think Glamour always does well with their samples.

    I'm glad you loved these! I'm probably the biggest Benefit makeup fan going (I'll show you my collection soon!) so seeing that you're a new found lover I'm really pleased!
    I highly recommend their, Liquid Magic eyeliner, Bella Bamba blusher and powder eye shadows. All of which have extremely long lasting wear and beautiful outcomes 🙂 xx

    I subscribed to Glamour recently as they were offering 2 Free O.P.I Nail varnishes for signing up for 6 months! I'm glad I did as they always have such great freebies with their mags! I got the Porefessional, but then went out and bought the other 2. Fab products I think 🙂

    I'm just wondering where you got your magazine from? Because the cover of all mine have a pic of Kylie Minogue on front, but yours has Fearne.. I wonder if the content is a bit different…
