Benefit freebies with Glamour magazine

This month in Glamour magazine (UK) they're giving away free one free Benetint, Posietint or Highbeam (2.5ml) free with the magazine.  The magazine came out today (June 9th) so there should still be some left!

Over past few months I've been reading enviously about some of you getting some great freebies with magazines and now it's my turn, hurrah!

Posietint, Highbeam and Benetint in their cute little bottles.  All 3 have little brush applicators.

I have wanted to try all three of these products for SO long but could never justify the cost but now I get to try out all three for £6.  The man in the shop was thoroughly bemused at me buying three of the same magazine.. even AFTER I said it was because of the free gifts!  Men have NO clue sometimes do they? lol
I'll be taking the extra mags to my doctors surgery as lord knows people want to read something a bit more recent than "Brad and Jen split" and "100 ways to celebrate the millenium". 

If you're not aware, Benetint is Benefit's best selling cheek and lip stain that is supposed to last all day and is loved by beauty gurus far and wide.  Posietint is a recent addition by Benefit which is basically a lighter, pinkier version of Benetint especially for us paler girls and Highbeam is a highlighter for cheeks which is also exceptionally popular amongst the Makeupistas of the world! (yeah I know that's not a word but it should be! ;) )

Cue swatches on freckly hand:

  Left to right: High beam, Benetint and Posietint.  (None have been blended in.) 

 I must say so far I'm loving these products.  The High beam leaves a really lovely dewy sheen on the skin and both the tints stayed on my hand even after several hand washes, this stuff has real staying power!

What's the best freebie you've ever had with a magazine?  Do you own any of the products above?  Do you rate them?  I'd love to hear from you! :)
