F for Free Samples

I don't know about anyone else but I love getting free samples in magazines. I got the lastest Glamour magazine over the weekend and it had a few free samples. There were two foundation samples (Channel and Rimmel) and a mystery face wash and mask. I know you don't get a lot in the samples but a first impression have a big impact. One downside is the colour but it would be impossoble for everyone to get the right shade. I am quite pale so I tend to use the samples after I have used false tan to get a better match. 

I am currently on the look out for a new foundation and I have looked at the Rimmel Wake Me Up so I am really happy about getting a sample (I also got one in this months Elle). I would love to wear Chanel make-up however I am on a student budget :( I am pretty happy with the Chanel sample as it means that I will get a chance to have Chanel all over my face before I am 30!

I am excited to try the mystery face mask/wash. I love the idea of creating a buzz about a product and I cannot wait for more to be revealed about the product.

I also got a free Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara with this months Elle. I have just bought a new mascara so I haven't opened it yet as I don't want it to dry out. I have heard a lot of good things about this mascara so I hope it lives up to the expectations. I will post a review when I have used it a few times.
