With so much beauty information available for free on the net, I was wondering how many readers subscribe to in-print beauty and women’s magazines.
I picked up a copy of Allure a few months back as reading during a road trip (no, not while I was driving. Ha! While I was the passenger.). Beauty magazines were always a MUST for my road trip gear.
But as I flipped through the pages I realized the beauty, skincare and makeup information seemed “old” or dated. Things that were announced on the web about a month ago. And makeup trends and looks that I’d already seen demonstrated & photographed very well on various sites; and then had been sporting myself for weeks.
I did still enjoy the women’s interest articles and the celeb “news” (I can’t take too much, but a few pages is fine). And I did plenty of hair cut, style and color oogling… since I love researching my next haircut. Here’s a funny anecdote, for my last cut, I brought my laptop to the salon loaded with photos I’d downloaded of the cut I wanted. I justified it by not wanting to spring for a paper mag (saving trees and being more green in my life), the economy (saving a few bucks), and yes, I’m a bit of a geek too.
So this week Bionic is Asking… how many print beauty or women’s magazines do you subscribe to? What are your favorites?
