Great magazine for womens issues. The fashion is fun and trendy, as go for the makeup tips. My only complaint is that I feel that Marie Claire's lists of makeup and clothing recommendations always the same color. ex: blue container on mascara, blue nail polish, light blue scubbing cream. The same list items will be found in next months issue except the products will be all yellow, or red... you get the idea. Is this coincidence, or a suggestion from the art director.
Great chick mag!
Marie Claire is a cross between Vogue and Glamour -- it mixes news about the latest fashions with hard-hitting articles about women's prison and the date rape drug. Which makes it one of the most intelligent women's magazines around. If you are a chick that enjoys magazines such as Vogue, Glamour and Mademoiselle then you'll enjoy Marie Claire. I would recommend an annual subscription to this one!
a good overall magazine
i enjoy reading magazines alot, especially when they arent just all about one particular topic, ie health , fashion, celebs etc. marie claire is a good combo of all of the topics plus more! i dont remember how the magazine was in the past, but if youre looking for a easy read to pass the time, then this is a good selection. also, i had a gift voucher so i got a good deal on it.
Overall Enjoyed but Unnecessarily Graphic
I thought the mix of low end and high end clothes were very appealing to me since I enjoy shopping at many different types of stores. I did, however, feel that many of the pictures were unnecessarily graphic, especially if my children were to pick it up and thumb through it. Overall, I enjoyed my first issue! :)
i really enjoy this magazine. This has lost of articles of fashion. A few pages of gosspis and advice. but it is mainly a fashion magazine. Definatly for a fahionista. :)
I REALLY DO ENJOY READING THIS MAGAZINE. ALTHOUGH I WOULD ENJOY IT MORE IF THEY COULD ADVERTISE CLOTHING THAT THE AVERAGE WOMAN COULD AFFORD. IM A SINGLE MOM AND I CAN'T AFFORD TO DROP 300 DOLLARS ON A SWEATER OR 100 DOLLARS ON A BELT. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE AFFORDABLE ITEMS DISPLAYED. I WOULD LIKE FOR THEM TO ALSO PUT MORE REAL LIFE STORIES. ARTICLES ABOUT REAL LIFE ISSUES AROUND THE WORLD. BUT ABOVE ALL I DO ENJOY THIS MAGAZINE.
getting my moneys worth so far
I'm impressed - it turns out that Marie Claire hires actual writers and publishes interesting articles and does not simply recycle the same makeup advice from year to year.
How Many More Times (will I love this magazine)?
I can't believe I am saying this, but Marie Curie saved MY marriage. We were going through one of those "rough-patches" and my life partner remarked: "Do we have what it takes?" I turned to him/her and said, "let's take that quiz." We did. Several times. The 4th time around, we marked our multiple choices answers and nervously awaited. We made some juice (that Black and Decker...now there's a mate you can Depend on!) and talked it over. We decided to stay together for the kids. Now, every-time we take a trip to see them, we bring our favorite magazine. Thanks! Highly rec'd!
quality more so than quantity
I like how more socially/culturally conscious this magazine has become - it usually has an article every month about women's culture in some area of the world. I have gotten the best ideas from this magazine of where my charitable contributions would be greatly needed and used. It's still what I'd consider a lighter read ...I'd say that with this magazine's content it's quality more so than quantity. I really look forward to this magazine in my mailbox every month.
This magazine has great articles, every thing from sex to women's rights issues. It keeps you up to date on the fashions and then shows you how you can do it with out breaking the bank. This is one magazine that I get every month and read from cover to cover.
