How to Get Free Makeup Samples and Beauty Products

Included in the following list of the free samples of makeup, cosmetics and skincare products, is information on where to get them, how to qualify, and how much you need to spend {if anything}in order to receive authentic free makeup samples, trial size products and special bonuses direct from designer cosmetics houses – not through third-party websites. The offers are available to customers who use brand name products and wish to try samples of newly released items or to be alerted to bonus gifts for specific cosmetics.

Editor’s Note:

Free samples of makeup and cosmetic or skincare products are time sensitive offers that expire. The exact freebies and bonuses described may no longer be available by the time you read this, which is why, wherever possible, I’ve included a website address for each brand so you can check for the latest offers.

Although there are descriptions of some offers {current at the time of writing}, direct links to specific coupons, vouchers or product samples are not provided because they expire quickly and will not be of long-term benefit.

The website addresses provided are NOT affiliated with Eyebrow Tattoo but are made available in an effort to help women get quality samples and bonus gifts directly from retailers, cosmetics houses and skincare companies.

Wondering how to get free mineral makeup samples from MAC?

Sorry. MAC Cosmetics doesn’t offer free mineral makeup samples through their online shop. In fact, they don’t offer any freebies {and websites that claim to offer MAC eyeshadow and foundation samples for FREE are all out of date}.

There’s only one way to get authentic MAC Cosmetics free mineral makeup samples, and that’s by going to Macy’s, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, a Duty Free Shop or a MAC store in your area and asking for a sample. Eyehsadows samples are hard to come by even at MAC cosmetic counters, but mineral foundation samples may be available if you ask.

If you need to know the location of your nearest MAC cosmetic’s shop or department store that carries these products, use this link to the official MAC website store locator:{perhaps the link can open in a small new window}

Editor’s Note:
