How to Get Free Lipstick Samples (Simple List)

In today’s freebie guide, I wanted to show you how you can find free lipstick samples online.

That’s right.   You don’t have to pay a penny.  You just have to provide your personal information so that it shows up at your door.

So, whether you’re just looking to try a new product or maybe you want to add to your collection, I’m sure one of these options will work for you.

As in all of my guides, I’m 100% honest, only recommend what works, so you won’t find a scam here, I promise.

How to Get Free Lipstick Samples by Mail


PINCHme is a free sample company I have mentioned plenty of times before.

In short, it’s a company that sends out free samples in the mail in exchange for your feedback.  And, the great thing about the company is that they almost always have samples available, and oftentimes, you can find free beauty products, sometimes including lipstick.

You may not get free lipstick right away, but I highly recommend you at least join the site to see what kind of samples you can take advantage of.  What you get will depend on your demographics and what’s available at the moment.

When you join, you can then keep tabs on what’s available at the moment.  When you see something you like, then you can request it.

It’s 100% free to join.


Join the Maybelline mailing list to potentially score free items in the future.

The company often sends exclusive coupons as well as invites to online events.  They also run giveaways where you can win products from the brand.

You won’t get free lipstick right away, but if you’re a fan of the brand, at least sign up for the email to see what shows up in your inbox in the future.

Free Websites

Unfortunately, I don’t have the manpower to continue to update the freebies for the day.  Seeing these offers expire fast, I just wouldn’t be able to keep up.

Fortunately, though, there are a ton of free websites that do.

Take a look at more than 40+ free websites that keep tabs on what freebies are out there right now.  Bookmark a few of your favorites and keep checking in and searching to see if you can take advantage of some free lipstick offers.


At M∙A∙C, you return six empty M∙A∙C makeup containers either via mail or to a local M∙A∙C counter, you can choose a standard M∙A∙C for free.

To learn more about the Back 2 M∙A∙C program and how they help the environment, you can do so via the link below.

Search Social Media

Social media is a very powerful tool to find free lipstick giveaways.

What I recommend is that you search hashtags, such as #freelipstick or #freelipstickgiveaways.  Instagram, for example, will recommend popular hashtags, so I would play around with them to see what works.

If you see a giveaway or opportunity that seems of interest, sign up to either win or have the product sent to your home.  Just be wary of scams when doing this as there are a lot of them out there.

Almost Free Lipstick

It’s hard to find free lipstick online, but you can almost always get free lipstick as long as you’re making a purchase with many of the brands I’m sure you’re familiar with.  This is why I wanted to create the almost free section.

Below, I listed a few retailers that often include free lipstick samples if you spend a certain amount, usually no more than $25.

Bobbi Brown

Bobbi Brown often offers a variety of samples you can add to your bag when you make a purchase.  How much you spend will depend on which samples you want.  You can see a list of all the recent samples here.


Clinique almost always offers a variety of free samples with a small purchase, usually around $45 or so.   The great thing about Clinique is that the samples are pretty good.  For example, during the Valentine’s Day season, they were giving away a $125 kit with every $45 purchase.  The offers are always changing, but you can see the most recent options here.


E.L.F. offers a variety of special offers, sometimes which includes free lipstick samples.  To see the most current offers, refer to the company’s official page here to see what’s available.

Estee Lauder

Estee Lauder offers free samples, usually as long as you spend at least $35.  The company offers a ton of free samples, all of which you can find here.  Check out the list the next time you plan on making a purchase with this retailer.


As long as you make an order with Sephora, you can add up to two samples to your order, which you can find a full list here.  Almost always, you can find a free lipstick sample, but even if it’s not available, there are a variety of other options available.

Final Thoughts

That’s going to do it for now.

There aren’t a ton of ways to get free lipstick, but I promise you that something mentioned above may work for you.  Granted, some options may take some time, but if you want it for free, you may have to be patient.

For now, what I recommend is that you sign up for as many of these company emails as possible as well as glance at those free websites mentioned.  By checking in daily to those free websites, you can greatly increase your odds of getting free lipstick samples.

As always, if you want to add to the list or want to comment on what’s mentioned, feel free to do so in the comments below.
