Ask for Them at Makeup Counters

Makeup counters are a great place to score free makeup samples. Don’t be afraid to ask for them. You’re a potential lifetime customer so the sales associate should be happy to supply you with some. They’ll usually give you more than you ask for because they know that it could mean potential business for the company they represent. In turn, you may become a loyal customer and then can continue getting great samples.


Order from Sephora

Sephora is a neat company to order from. They carry many different brands so you can get all of your beauty favorites at one place. They also give you free samples with every order. That’s a great incentive to order from Sephora. Smashbox also gives you free samples with every order and Tarte Cosmetics gives free samples with a $40 purchase.


Contact a Mary Kay Consultant

I used to be a Mary Kay consultant and still love most of their products. You can get samples on many different products in the Mary Kay line. You can also get a free facial or earn free products by hosting a Mary Kay party. It’s definitely worth it to contact your local Mary Kay consultant. If you don’t know who that is, the Mary Kay website can help you locate one close to you.


Swap with Friends

Sometimes you end up with samples you don’t want. Your friends probably find themselves in that position, too. It’s always good to check with your friends before you trash unwanted samples. The sample you don’t want may be the one they’ve been dying to try. In return, they can give you their unwanted samples. Without making a big production, you’ve set up a swap.


Check Your Magazines

Magazines can be a great place to find samples. I’ve found moisturizer, foundation, bb cream and perfume samples in magazines. Be careful to go through your entire magazine so you don’t miss them. Leafing through a magazine once can leave samples behind. Get your money’s worth out of your magazines by finding all the included samples.


Request Them Directly

Are you dying to try a specific product? Contact the company directly. Many times, companies are happy to send you samples if you ask for them. They may even include coupons for the product you want to try. They know a small free gift such as this could mean return business for them.


Follow Your Favorite Makeup Brands on Social Media

Following your favorite makeup brands on social media could land you some free samples or even a full size product. Makeup companies sometimes give away full size products to their social media followers. You never know, you could be the lucky winner! It’s worth the small effort of following makeup companies to get the perks. Besides all of that, you’ll be the first to know the latest on new products by following them.

These’re 7 ways you can get free makeup samples. What makeup are you dying to try a sample of? I’d love to hear from you!

On London they are so stingy with who they give it too pathetic but true

Kailee, what a pretty name! Ulta is a huge make-up, hair, and perfume specialty store that is all over the U.S. It carries everything from cheap drugstore makeup to expensive prestige makeup, hair products, and so much more. It's a candy store for girls/women!

@kailee we do. Shoppers started doing it first, then ulta started in the states. Shoppers especially with beauty beautiques offer from low to high end makeup.

@Sev, I would never have thought to ask at Shoppers, geez I just assumed they didn't , thank you for the info...

@Jackie, Thank you xo. Ulta sounds amazing, wish we Canucks had options like Ulta here. Thanks again for taking the time to explain Jackie, greatly appreciated

Sephora is pretty awesome with their samples, I've always received a little bag filled with mini mascara's, masks, mini lipsticks only becuz I asked...and remind them when in store that shopping online w a Sephora is great especially the guaranteed free samples and BANG that little black and white bag is packed!

Also with couponing you can score some great deals on drugstore makeup
