I’ve wanted to try out some new mineral makeup, but there’s one thing standing in my way:
EVERYTHING IS SO OUTRAGEOUSLY EXPENSIVE IN AUSTRALIA!
Whew, feels good to get that off my chest.
I remembered that back home I had received some free samples from some awesome companies that want you to test out their product before you buy, which I think is such an excellent idea, especially for people like me with such sensitive skin.
So I started googling things like “free makeup samples australia.” One of the sites that came up was actually for a brand that I had previously received free samples from back in Canada, Everyday Minerals. I figured I’d check it out. I’m pretty sure I had to pay shipping back then so I assumed that it would cost me an arm and a leg to ship it out to Australia, but hey, I figured it was worth a look.
I chose a few foundation colours, a blush and two eye shadows (you get 7 free samples… I know, how awesome is that?)
I added my choices to the cart, put in my postal code for an estimated shipping price and braced myself for mid-range double digits. You can imagine my shock when I saw $2.83 AUD on the screen! I was so excited! Obviously I made the purchase (it came out to $3 CAD exactly). I know it will probably take a few weeks to arrive, but hey, I really can’t complain. Plus, from what I remember, the samples are small but actually last a while. I think i still have some half-empty mini jars back home.
I can’t wait until they arrive! It always feels like my birthday when I receive packages in the mail (even if I bought them myself lol).
Check out Everyday Minerals! They have great, natural, gentle products, and this is the best way to find your perfect shade
