I don’t usually post the free gift things on magazines unless they really interest me or are relevant to you who read my blog.

However while I was picking up a loaf of bread this morning I saw on the front of Cosmopolitan (April 2012 issue) they are doing a free gift with their issues. Its a Clinique Gift and there’s 4 to choose from!

The choices available are;

Clinique Superbalm Moisturising Gloss

Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream

Clinique Moisture Surge

Clinique High Impact Mascara

I think its pretty obvious which one I choose although all of the free gifts available are pretty good. I have Clinique Moisture Surge and find it to be really good (Although I admit I don’t use it much anymore).

The Clinique High Impact Mascara reminds me a lot of Dior Backstage DiorShow Mascara. I’ve only ever had a sample of that which is why I’ve never reviewed it for you but have always been a bit of a fan as I love the brush. The High Impact Mascara has a lovely bristled brush which gets lots of length in the lashes and is easily buildable. I also noticed volume too although not masses of it.

I had some problems with the shots I took with my SLR, so today you only have shots with me wearing 2 coats of the Clinique High Impact Mascara (You know I like to get picture happy with it comes to mascara swatching!!)

For £3.50 (The cost of Cosmo) the 3.5ml High Impact Mascara is worth it in my eyes – I like sample size mascaras to keep in my hand bag. I also have to add, how HOT does Holly Willoughby look on the cover?! Can you say girl crush!

Will you be getting Cosmo? If so what free gift will you be collection?

Lots of Love,

Mel xxxx
