I have been a MC subscriber for many years and have enjoyed staying up to date with fashion and popular styles. Unfortunately the magazine has become a lot like the shallow ones that are at newsstands (or maybe I'm more mature). It used to have very good articles that had a lot to do with empowering women and showcasing female talent/intellect. Now it just reads more like a slightly intelligent version of Cosmopolitan, minus the sex craze. Although I understand that there are a lot of social and cultural changes that affect women it was nice to have a magazine that seemed to respect women, not just sexualize them to sell something.
I read a lot of magazines. My roommates sigh everytime they check the mail because they inevitably have to carry home heavy piles of glossy paper encased in plastic wrap. Marie Claire is probably my favorite magazine out of all the ones I read (I read most fashion and women's health magazines) because it provides a bit of everything that the average young professional woman like myself enjoys. Some of its interest pieces about real life people are thought-provoking and well-written. There is almost always a feature article about some celebrity, but Marie Claire takes the time to interview the celebrity and try to get a different perspective on her life. Finally, MC also has all the other fun and frills that any girl wants when she mindlessly reads a magazine while getting a mani/pedi - beauty tips, fashion ideas etc.
It's Marie Claire magazine - while the content is ever changing, it's a girlie combination of product reviews, fashion statements, articles regarding women, advice, and tips and tricks for hair, make-up and clothes. It's another marketing tool aimed at consumers under the guise of providing current information and trending topics. I like to stay up-to-date, even if I am not a hugely trendy fashionista or mass consumer. I was surprised at how quickly this subscription arrived at my house - on time, too. The invoice stated it would be here just before Thanksgiving, and it was.
I started reading this magazine to follow Project Runway and considered giving it up when the series completed but discovered I had become somewhat addicted. I am not too much into fashion but there are always lots of helpful articles and then there are also the unexpected ones that are deep and cover unusual issues. I share my copies with the younger crowd (I'm a grandmother) and they love it.
I got this magazine as a Christmas present for my wife. I received the first issue just this week; ok, a little early for Christmas but hey! My wife really likes the magazine and is greatly enjoying it. As I have gotten seriously interested in photography I am enjoying looking at the many photographs in the magazine. It is a nice compliment to our mutual enjoyment of fashion tv programs like "Project Runway". At this time, I believe we will re-subscribe after this initial Amazon subscription runs out.
I was interested in checking out Marie Claire (2-year) after watching the TV show "Project Runway." Imagine my suprise when I found a two year subscription on sale for only $7! What a deal! The magazine is chock full of fashion, both affordable and haute couture. I really like the fact that so many prices are listed for the various items shown in the magazine. Two thumbs up!
Marie Claire has to win "Most Improved" for magazines over the past few years. For a while it seemed as though the magazine wasn't able to keep up with the latest trends or at least wasn't able to portray trends in a way that appealed to its long time readers. Thankfully, things have turned around! I have a magazine obsession (about 10 subscriptions or so), and Marie Claire is in my top 3. If you're looking for a magazine with a focus on fashion and beauty but with a nice mix of articles, then this is the perfect choice! Also, a subscription is much more cost effective than buying each issue in-store, and it's always so exciting to come home from a long day at work with this little gem in your mailbox.
This is not your trashy beauty magazine. It has insightful articles, book recommendations, simple interviews, and of course beauty and style all in one. It also covers such things as politics but in a clear and concise manner. I really like this magazine. And i'm not embarassed to read it on the Subway because it doesn't have trashy or tacky sex articles like some other magazines. Marie Claire is a very mature and insightful magazine that provides good reading, nice pictures, and different opinions.
This was a gift for my daughter-in-law and she's been waiting anxiously for her first issue to arrive. The date it was supposed to start was Nov. 1, but she got it in the mail just this past week! Thank you for that! I also bought myself a subscription to National Geographic, a renewal actually. Mine was supposed to end at the start of October, but they adjusted their processing so that I never missed a magazine! Two thumbs up and I will continue to order magazines!
I've had a subscription to Marie Claire for about a year. I've tried out tons of different women's magazines over the past 10 years but this is the first one that I've really loved. It is the perfect balance between beauty, fashion, and enlightening articles. I don't feel like the stories are just trash that has been rehashed year after year like most other young women's magazines. And the topics it covers are really interesting and full of "girl power". They also feature female stars that are respectable rather than the ones that make me totally disappointed in my generation. I've been so impressed by Marie Claire that I've acutally bought subscriptions for my friends. The low subscription price is totally worth it!
