With the list of sites below, you will receive a mix of free makeup samples by mail and in store, such as: free cosmetic samples, free beauty products, free lipstick samples, free foundation samples, free mascara samples and more! Some of the sites below will have you become a member of their site and/or sign up for their newsletter. Once you've signed up, they will send you newsletters, and in those newsletters, they will inform you when free products are available. When you receive notice, you need to respond immediately, because the free samples usually go quickly.

Discount Fanatics Freebies and Deals Blog
I list many freebies and free-after-coupon deals each day, so you should check the blog at least once per day!
Walmart Free Samples
This is one of the most reliable Free Sample programs around! You can always trust that you will receive their samples. Check their site frequently, as it is popular and the samples go fairly soon, or simply follow my freebies blog and I'll let you know when the free samples become available. They always have a variety of free samples including free makeup samples by mail, free baby samples by mail, free dog food samples, free razors and more!
Target Sample Spot
Their free samples go quickly, so I'd advise you check their page daily, or simply follow my freebies blog. Target's free samples also vary widely and could include free razor samples, free skincare samples, free cereal samples, free makeup samples by mail, free shampoo or conditioner and more!
Sam's club periodically offers free samples to their members on their website. You can check this page periodically, or you can follow my freebies blog. I'll let you know when their offering free samples.
Click the Costco link above, and in the search box, type in "free sample." The most recent free sample offers will pop up. Click into each one and see which free samples are available. Costco periodically offers its members free samples, such as free diapers, free toothpaste, free hair care products and more. You can check their page periodically, or you can follow my freebies blog and I'll notify you when the freebies by mail become available. A 12-digit Costco member number is required.
Facebook & Twitter
Follow the brands that you wear and like on Facebook and Twitter and be on the lookout for announcements of product giveaways.
Cosmetic counters will often hold events where they will provide free samples to shoppers. They even provide free beauty makeovers, then will provide you with a small bag of free samples. You can call the make-up counters in advance and inquire about such events.
Join The Club
Also ask about clubs or Insider lists that you can join, such as Sephora's Beauty Insider. When you purchase from Sephora, they will periodically give insiders free samples to try new products! Many Companies will also give you a Free Product on your Birthday if you come in and pick it up.
You can get discount coupons and/or coupons for free products simply by emailing the product manufacturer directly. I've done this many times myself. Email them with a compliment, product suggestion or even a complaint, and many times, they will send you product coupons. Email them specifically asking for product coupons and guess what, they'll send you coupons! Tell them how much you or a family member love their product (tell them which specific product), then ask if they can mail you any free product coupons or discount coupons. Nine times out of ten, you'll get them!
Coupons for Makeup & Personal Care Items
As I inform my readers throughout this website, groceries are the second largest expense for most people/families, so you need to save when and where you can! You can get lots of free food and free products simply by using coupons! For example: When there are $1.00 coupons available for Wet N Wild products, you can many times find Wet N Wild Nail Polish either regular priced or on sale at Walmart, Target or Walgreens for $1.00 or less, making these free! Many of the popular makeup and personal care coupons available through Coupons.com are shown to the left. Remember that you save the most money when combining coupons with a sale.
