How do we choose? Fear not! Free makeup samples are ours to have! Thanks to the generosity of savvy companies, we can try our new eye candy without breaking the bank! Sometimes you don’t even have to spend a penny! You just have to know how to get your hands on those awesome freebies!
There are many reasons it would be smart to try a free makeup sample before purchasing the full size product.
You could be allergic to one or more ingredients contained in the product formula.
Been there, done that – and ended up in the emergency room! That was no fun. I had tried a self tanner by applying it to my entire body!! Without testing it first. I know. That was not my smartest move! Don’t worry that this might happen to you – just run a test by dabbing some of your free makeup sample on a small area of your inner wrist, then wait 24 hours. If all is well, try some on a small area of your face. If after 24 hours you haven’t had a problem, you are most likely good to go!
Some people have skin sensitivities to some of the ingredients.
You may not be allergic to the product, but something in the formula may just irritate your skin. With so many choices out there, this freebie would not be worth it for you. Find a similar product that loves your delicate skin.
The product may not work well with your skin type.
Everyone has a different skin combination, so what works for one person may just not be the best for another. Sometimes makeup can be too drying and become caky on a person who has dry skin, but would be just perfect for the oiliest complexion. You never have to settle, because there is always a perfect one for you!
The color may not be flattering once you put it on.
Yep! With all of the colors of the rainbow available to you, find the shades that make you feel your prettiest!
The texture may not be appealing to your preferences.
Once in a while, a product may just feel uncomfortable to wear so shop around until you find one that fits like your favorite pair of jeans. After all, you can try free makeup samples until you discover your new favorite!
Perhaps the product does not live up to the advertisements and just doesn’t work for you.
Advertising is meant to sell product, but that doesn’t mean you have to take their word for it. Try it for yourself, and if you don’t like it, don’t buy it!
You may decide it is not worth the asking price.
We often find that that the less expensive products can and do work better than their pricier competitors.
There are many stores that offer free makeup samples both in store and online. Our current favorite is Sephora, both online and in store. You just need to know how to go about getting those lovely items!
Tips for getting free makeup samples at Sephora
Just ask, and you can walk out of the store with a whole bag of free makeup samples
Really! All you have to do is ask for a free sample of your favorite newbies, and a beauty associate will do her very best to make that happen. She will be happy to send you home with samples because of her confidence that you will return to purchase the full-size item once you have had a chance to fall in love! Just be sure that you do either buy something that day or that you really do return and make a purchase just because it’s the right thing to do:)
Get your free gift during your birthday month
Sephora has a rewards program called Beauty Insider. You get points for every dollar spent, and after a while they can add up to big bucks for you to spend. That is awesome enough! But just go any time during your birthday month, and if you are a Beauty Insider member, walk up to the counter and request your free gift! It’s always something great!
Ask about free classes
Many free classes are available to teach you all things makeup. After all, you are Sephora’s walking billboard if you use their products, so they want you to look amazing so all of your friends will want to shop there too!
Have fun shopping for your new look and good luck with all of your awesome free makeup samples!
