The Best Free Samples To Get At Sephora Right Now

We think the phrase "try before you buy" was made for beauty products. After all, who wants to drop $30 on a new mascara you might end up hating? That's why samples are so essential — not just to protect your wallet, but also to figure out what the heck you actually like, instead of settling for something that's just okay.
Luckily, everyone's favorite black-and-white striped beauty emporium knows the importance of this age-old mantra. Read: Thanks to a pretty rad sampling policy, you don't even have to shop in-store to try new things with every purchase. That's right, Sephora offers free samples with every purchase — even those made from the comfort of your own couch. Hooray! But of the dozen items offered on the site's Free Beauty Samples page, you can only take three home with you — and that means you have to choose wisely.
