Try Before You Buy!
When it comes to base makeup I am a creature of habit. Just hand me a decent concealer, tinted moisturizer or foundation, and powder and I'm good to go. Well, I recently decided I need to do some more exploring on the foundation front because having a flawless canvas sets the stage for beautiful eyes, lips, and cheeks.
I still have a few base makeup products to finish up so I could not justify purchasing another. If there's one type of makeup product I do not hoard, it would be foundation because it simply goes bad after awhile. I heard a lot of raves about Laura Mercier's Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer but at $42 a pop I wasn't too keen on purchasing right away. This is where the sampling comes in! I dropped by
So now I have a new tinted moisturizer to try out and I didn't have to break my self imposed ban. I know I did not "officially" announce that I was going on what I like to call a "makeup diet". It wasn't meant to be a ban in the first place but I've found that I'm becoming better at resisting makeup purchases. Just because I'm proud of myself I would like to say that I have not made a beauty related purchase since June 5th which was when I went to the CCO and Walmart (see my tiny haul HERE). I'm pretty confident that I can last til at least the two month point!
Wow, this post turned out to be a lot more wordy than I intended. So tell me what you guys think! Do you ever ask for samples of products before purchasing? When was the last time you purchased a beauty product?
