I am really lovin’ this new magazine called ‘New Beauty’. It is chock full of interesting articles. What makes this mag different from, say, Allure or Glamour or any type of beauty/fashion magazine is has a lot of articles about surgeries and procedures. And although I am in no way getting any kind of ‘lift, tuck or abrasion’ any time soon it sure is interesting reading.
It also feature tons of products I’ve never heard about, but might consider using now; make-up applications, skin care and techniques; and best of all before/after photos of celebrities and regular human people. I love seeing folks without all the war paint and hair on and then seeing them all done up!
The magazine is available in six regional editions so you get the magazine that lists doctors and services in your area (midwest for me!).
Ps. I would not consider this a ‘fashion’ magazine. It features very little clothing/modeling which I appreciate-I can buy InStyle for that. Also, I feel that this magazine is geared toward a more mature consumer (think 30s, 40s +). I get tired of seeing a bunch of rail thin preteen girls with perfect, baby skin flaunting make-up and clothes that I can’t or will never wear. No matter how often my husband reminds me that every ad is airbrushed and retouched like crazy it is disheartening to have to look at it constantly and be reminded of what I’m not.
I also love this magazine. I got hooked on it visiting my sister in law. She had a ton of them. I can look at it over and over again. The only drawback is the cost, about $11 per issue. You can justify this by knowing it’s not a monthly thing :o)
