Makeup freebies that do (and don't) bite the dust



MakeupIs a freebie a score when it's worth nada to you?

Over the years, I've amassed an empire of free gifts with makeup purchases. So many cosmetic bags in completely impractical sizes. I could spritz Clinque Happy every day for the rest of my life, but it makes me cough. My vanity is like a bowling alley for little eye creams.

Cosmetics_3So I was thrilled to see a gift from Prescriptives at Dillard's that I'll actually use: Lipstick, lip gloss, mascara. My pick of warm or cool lip shades. The fact that I needed all of the above took the sting out of the $32.50 minimum purchase of moisturizer or foundation, of which I was also bare-bone dry.

It came with yet another "luxury cosmetics bag." I swear, I will try to use this one. But the bottle of Super Line Preventer is doomed to a dark corner, unless anyone wants it. Share and tell time: What freebies are gathering dust under your sink?
