Marie Claire offers solutions for the woman whose time constraints demand one resource to respond to diverse aspects of her life. From global and cultural issues to fashion and beauty coverage, Marie Claire is for the woman of substance with an eye for style.
- Brand: Hearst Magazines
- Formats: Magazine Subscription, Print
Sex, romance, shoes, lingerie, diet, guns, war--Marie Claire is a grab bag of hot issues for the modern woman. Combining a powerful feature on gun control laws with an article on the best lingerie to wear with low-slung jeans, Marie Claire proves that beauty magazines need not be all fluff and no substance. It provides one-stop shopping for the Cosmo woman craving a little more from her fashion magazine--the kind of woman who can talk politics while painting her nails and solving her relationship woes, all while on the treadmill. Yet for all its attempts to become a jill of all trades, Marie Claire remains a powerhouse in one field: beauty. From the hottest lip or polish color to the latest haircut, from the best tools of the trade to the must-have scent of the year, Marie Claire remains unsurpassed as the best source for beauty advice, and those pages alone are worth the cover price. --Daphne Durham

Marie Claire..not the great magazine it used to be.
I've been really disappointed for a while now with the changes Marie Claire has made. While it's held onto to the "real world" stories, it's fashion content is useless. I always loved Marie Claire because it was fashion that one could actually wear in everyday life and I always found myself ripping out pages to save for outfit inspiration later. It's now become a pseudo-Elle with busy pages featuring awful expensive high fashion crap that looks tacky and no one can afford. I've been holding out for a while now hoping it would get better but I've just been disappointed again and again. It's not what it once was and after being a constant subscriber for 6+years I will finally be canceling my subscription. It's a shame.

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've just got my first issue (February, 2015) and I'm going to cancel this subscription. I was expecting a magazine with substance and interesting articles but instead it has 180 pages: 25 pages (yes I counted) have some content to read (not necessarily interesting) about beauty, relationships ...; the rest of it, 155 pages, are full of adds of all kinds.
