Question of the Week: Name the last free beauty sample you received that ultimately led to the purchase of a full-size product.
Answer: Another timely Lipstick League question! I recently visited a Chella Beauty Brow Bar here in Southern California. I went for a brow makeover (which was fabulous) and left with a handful of Chella Beauty skin care samples (even more fabulous).
While Chella, a cruelty free beauty brand, is known for their brow expertise, tools and products, I was happily surprised to find some skin care gems inside the foil samplers. My very favorite so far is the Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream. It has a nice medium weight that never feels heavy and it instantly brightens and smoothes my eye area. I’ve gone through my samples and am placing my order for the full size this weekend!
Readers – When was the last time a beauty sample convinced you to make a purchase?
Please note: not all Lipstick League posts are cruelty free.
