Bare Escentuals: Free Love

At times I wish I lived across the border. Just for the shopping & offers though. I hate paying for shipping, especially when the actual product is free. Pisses me off so much! If I lived in the States, I would just go to the store & pick it up!

I'm mentioning the whole thing bout paying shipping & living in the US because I just came across the Bare Escentuals Peace and Love Samples. [<-- Click me to get your freebies]

The free sample includes:
  • A small sized bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation in one of the following shades: fairly light, light, medium beige, medium tan, medium dark, golden dark
  • Premi Buki Brush
  • & a BONUS: Rare Moisturizer Sample Packette (you'll see it when you're at the makeup bag/check out)
There's a limit of 1 per customer & shipping is only $3.95. Sorry if this is old news. I haven't been browsing much online lately since I've been busy with school. Hope some of you can take advantage of this offer.

I fell in love with the bareMinerals foundation after I tried it at my friends place in the Medium Beige shade (it was her sisters), so when I went to the States last summer I knew I HAD to get it for myself. Guess what shade I ended up getting though? Medium Tan!! I knew Medium Beige was the perfect shade for me, but I thought I'd listen to the makeup consultant there & purchase what she recommended instead since she's a consultant & what not. I was double-minded then & being the indecisive person that I am, I got the one that she chose for me. Keep in mind that it was summer back then & after spending a few days in VA I had tanned even more.

Anyway, it's a bit dark for me, so I've only used it two or three times since last August! So sad considering I don't really spend much on cover-up/foundation cause I don't really need it & the one time I decide to splurge a bit, I end up with something that I can't wear. Do you feel my pain? Guess I'll just have to wait till July or August when I get that dark again. Maybe I'll do a review on it then too. It's been so long that I don't remember much, but I remember loving the coverage & not feeling like I have anything on my face.

Enough with the chitter chatter. Go get your free sample now!

P.S. Wow, I've got 129 votes on the "I'm Gaga for Gaga Contest" Finalists' poll so far. Shocking, yet exciting! Thanks for all the support & votes everyone. If you haven't voted yet, please do so. The poll closes in about a day. I'm in first place at the moment, but it's really close. Help me win my first big prize (cause even though the free hot chocolate from Tim Horton's was good, this is MUCH better!!)

You could go into Sephora and get that exact sample for free if I'm not mistaken.

I love free samples! I don't wear foundation though. lol

LaaLaa, it took me a while to get used to mineral foundation, but once you get the hang of it, it looks good.

Rai, I would drop by Sephora if it wasn't 1.5 hours away :(
