Freebie Friday

Friday, July 11, 2014

A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, right? Well with that in mind, my friend Megan (from meganleonardd.blogspot.com) and I, set out on a mission to see how many free samples we could get in one day, hashtag cheapskates. 
I must admit, I was surprised at how successful our trip was. From Benefit and Urban Decay right down to Lush and Origins, we managed to get a hell of a variety of free products. Totalling up at 16 between us, we did pretty well. All the products we collected as free samples were products that we had either read about prior to, or products recommended to us by the makeup artists. 

Tips on getting free samples

1. Don't be shy
When asking for free samples, don't be shy, free samples exist for a reason and makeup artists are willing to give them out to interested customers. 

2. Research before you go
Nothing's more exciting to a makeup artist than when a customer knows what they're talking about. Have some key words to throw at them when asking about a specific product - they'll love that. 

3. Never say "free"
Although above I've called them "free samples", when asking just mention samples. Subconsciously, this implies that, later down the line, you'll be interested in actually purchasing the full sized product - clever eh?



Benefit
The Porefessional Balm
Triple Performing Facial Emulsion
Big Easy Complexion Perfector

Lush
Rehab Shampoo
Retread Shampoo

Origins

Urban Decay

So why not give it a go yourself and see what samples you can get.
