How to get free makeup samples

Leaning against the wall in the bathroom, I would watch my mum get ready for work. She would carefully style her hair and then apply her makeup- never alot, a bit of powder, eyeliner and lipgloss but I would watch in amazement as she put eyeliner on her waterline a task that looked at the time so scary. I vowed to never do the same. Well...fastforward and eyeliner is one of my makeup bag staples and I love applying makeup whether for fun, a meal out, school run or work.

There are so many makeup products on the market that it is hard to know which ones are the best. Buying them all would be a huge expense that very few people can afford. So instead of splurging and not liking a product, I have been looking into ways to try before I buy and have decided to use free makeup samples to try out new brands and see what I like!

I have included some information which will help my fellow makeup lovers learn how to get free makeup samples from both well-known and lesser known brands. Some of the samples are delivered directly to your door, while others require that you go to a local store and pick them up. In some cases, you may be able to get a full-sized product at no cost to you!

There are lots of samples that you can score at no cost to you, but I think makeup is particularly useful. You can try new products without spending any money, so you know what you want to buy going forward. When you actively try and get free samples, you can fill up your drawers with lipstick, eye shadow, mascara, blush, and even foundation. You'll have a new product for every occasion and that for me is a bonus!

Getting Samples By Mail

Getting free makeup samples sent to you by mail is convenient and easy. All you have to do is send in a request! The Internet is your best resource; there are sites that list all the free samples they can find, and those sites are updated regularly. If you are interested in other products, like magazines or food, you can often find those as well.

It is difficult to get makeup samples, but if you keep checking, you should be able to find some. Just make sure to look each day.

Getting Samples At The Store

Whenever you visit your favorite store, inquire as to whether they have any free makeup samples available. Chances are that you will walk out with quite a few products!

Department stores, in particular, often like to give out free samples. However, you can generally get them from any place that has makeup, so there is no harm in asking. Since you are already at the store, you can even get a makeover, if you would like, to see if there are new products that look good on you. The store may even send you home with some samples so you can evaluate your choices before you purchase them.

Getting Samples From Test Groups

Some test groups will give you the chance to try out new makeup. After you evaluate the product and send in your ideas, you can typically keep the makeup you were reviewing.

One option is the L'Oreal Consumer Participation Panel. The surveys generally don't take up much of your time, and you get a full size product to enjoy when you are finished.

The PF Buzz program, by Physician's Formula, is another option. You are also able to keep the products when you are done trying them out.

Getting Samples With Your Order

When buying makeup samples over the Internet, you can usually get free samples shipped to you 

And there you have it! Let me know what makeup samples you managed to grab!
