New In: Makeup Freebies + My Free Makeup Collection


Here are my two newest makeup freebies...



I got this Rimmel Volume Accelerator Mascara in a social giveaway. (One of those giveaways where you send a gift to a friend.) It is a good mascara and it does add plenty of volume! I've gotten compliments on my lashes while wearing this mascara. Overall, I've had really positive experiences with Rimmel products. They seem to be very good quality for their price range.


I got this Mary Kay lipstick through a text message giveaway. I was super excited to recieve such a nice full-sized product for free! But when I got a look at this bright orange shade (Citrus Flirt) I was like, "Never mind...don't think this is gonna work!" However, I was really surprised once I gave it a try. I would have never thought I could do the bright orange lip trend, but it turned out to actually be quite pretty and flattering on me. And the formula is perfect: light, yet moisturizing. I've had very limited experience with Mary Kay products in the past, but the couple Mary Kay items that I have tried recently were excellent quality. 

While preparing this post, I noticed that I've amassed a huge free makeup collection over the past year or so! So, I thought I'd show it off.  I got all of these cosmetics for free through contests, giveaways, and couponing


Face



Facial Moisturizers and Fragrance


Mascaras


Lipsticks


Eyeshadows


Eyeliners


Nail Polishes


If you love to discover great new products without the financial risk, it pays to keep your eyes out for giveaways and sales!  

Have you won any beauty swag lately?

    1. Hi Shannon! Yeah...I'm always shocked how many awesome products are out there for the asking! But that marketing technique totally works-I've become fiercely loyal to a lot of brands and products I probably wouldn't have tried otherwise :-)

  3. I'm glad the orange lipstick turned out to be pretty flattering! It actually looks pretty, but I would be worried too looking at it in the tube.
