Beauty and Fashion Mags in UK and US

Okay, I love beauty and fashion mags. I actually like to look at the pictures more than the words, which I don't think is a bad thing. I thought I'd share some of my favourite print magazines as well as links to their websites or blogs.

First, Glamour. Everyone knows Glamour. Whether you read Glamour UK or Glamour US, I think you know what it's about. And actually, I do read the articles here. I buy this pretty much every month. I really should get a subscription, but still even at full price (£2 here in the UK) it's worth it. I read that baby cover to cover!

Next, I recently have fallen in love with US magazine Allure as they are the only beauty-related magazine published widely in English. I do have a subscription to this as it's the cheapest way I can get it in the UK. If there was a UK beauty magazine, I might consider switching, but for now, I'll stick with Allure.

 Another favourite of mine is actually a few! Namely the plethora of hair style magazines available in the UK such as Your Hair, HairIdeas, and Hairstyles Only to name a few. There's always one going, and they are great to flip through to get ideas for hair styles and colours. I must not be into hair enough, because I own 4 of these and that's been enough for me. Ha ha, that's not true. Every 6 months or so I might buy a new one, but I still find that photos repeat between editions and even in the other magazines. However, at £2 a pop for most of these, I don't mind having a browse.

What are some of your favourite mags?


  1. I am not sure why/when I stopped reading Glamour. I used to read it faithfully. I don't recall stopping but apparently I did. I feel the desire to run out and buy one today!

  2. I absolutely adore Glamour. I can't afford it right now, but I go to the library and read it faithfully. That's really the only beauty mag I read. (and I totally like the pictures better too!)

  3. Glamour in the UK is now printed in a small 'handbag' size, that I love. There's something about the smaller format that just makes it all that more convenient. I think it's still the best value ladies mag out there, even better if you get it at the library!
