Sometimes you just need to try something out before you decide you want to buy it. By receiving free makeup samples, you can decide for yourself what you like. This page is your best resource to get free makeup samples. We keep it updated regularly with the best offers online.
This list features every quality offer we find. Some do require participation or shipping costs, but to help you find the types of offers you are looking for, we have pages featuring only the offers for free makeup samples without surveys or participation as well as the offers for free makeup samples with free shipping.
Once you determine which products you love and which you can do without, you can purchase beauty products knowing that you are spending your money on products you’ll actually use and like! Here, we’ll keep you updated on the latest free makeup offers from our affiliate networks and other websites. Please note that when you click on an offer, you are leaving our website.
Instead of spending $10-15 on a lip gloss or eyeshadow you’re not even sure you will like, trying a sample can allow you to find out if you like a particular product or shade. That way you’ll know which products you do want to pick up next time you visit the makeup counter.
Occasionally, offers for entire free makeup kits from various cosmetics companies including MAC, Nars and others will be available. Other times, we will feature free lip glosses, eyeshadows, skincare products or other individual beauty products. We will also occasionally feature free shipping offers. With some of the more expensive products, trying them for free is a great way to determine which ones you will want to eventually purchase.
Remember that each offer is provided by another company. We simply list the offers here to help give you a convenient place to come for updates on the best free samples of makeup and beauty products the web has to offer. Be sure you understand the conditions for signing up for each offer. Each free makeup sample offer is different. Some require you to fill out a survey, some require you to cover the shipping charges. Others require no participation at all, while others provide the shipping is free of charge. Each one is different.
We also post info for great blog giveaways and contests that we come across. Usually these contest require you to “like” a company’s facebook page, or to follow their site on Twitter in order to enter. These giveaways are a great way to get some awesome makeup and cosmetics prizes. Again, each time we list a contest or discount offer, we will include a link of where to sign up or get further details.
If you like this page, help us spread the word by sharing it on Facebook or following our site on Twitter! You can also share individual offers via Twitter or Facebook as well – we’ve added buttons on every page to help make sharing easier. :)
Tips on Choosing Free Makeup Samples
While many of us would really like to find quality makeup samples for free, sometimes the overall process can be a bit overwhelming. Where are the best places to look? Which offers are worth filling out? Which ones aren’t? How do I know which sample offers are legitimate? Once I’ve signed up for an offer, how long will it take to arrive? All of these questions are very typical for those seeking free samples of makeup and beauty products. Here are a few pointers to help you during your search.
Knowing where to start is key. The first step in choosing makeup sample offers is to determine your needs vs. your wants. If you are looking for a good, everyday foundation and you haven’t yet found that perfect product, then trying samples of foundation makeup products should be a higher priority than just signing up to get a new shade of lip gloss. When searching for samples, keep your needs in mind and focus on looking for samples of products that you will truly use.
Once you have determined your first priorities or needs, you can then move on to additional fun and exciting products that you want. With these, sign up for them if you have extra time after applying for your makeup essentials. You should definitely consider how easy these types of offers are going to be. If one is requiring a half hour of your time, I’d say skip it. If it’s a simple “sign up and get your sample” type of offer, then why not give it a go?
Now that you know the products to be on the lookout for, the next step is finding some good reliable sources for free beauty and makeup sample offers. Our page is an excellent resource, :) so be sure to bookmark this page. Other quality pages include freemakeupandbeautysamples.com as well as the freebie page on Walmart.com. If you bookmark these other pages as well, you will have a few good “go-to” pages to check once a week or so. The pages are updated regularly, so you’ll be sure to be informed of all the best, current free beauty sample offers available.
Once you have found a good list of pages and sites offering freebies, either sign up for their email updates, or make a habit of checking them once a week or so. We recommend subscribing to the email updates since you’ll then receive free offers automatically. They’ll be delivered right to your email inbox. If you don’t want to sign up for an offer, you can simply delete the email. If you do, you’ll be guaranteed not to miss another great makeup freebie again.
Best of luck! xo
