Stuff I got for complimentary

I’ve been accumulating a bunch of cosmetic items that I’ve received for complimentary recently. Here’s what I’ve been given in the past month or so:

No cash exchanged hands for any of this!

It was Clinique bonus offer time about a month ago and my coworker ended up getting 2 gwp bags and she was really only interested in the skincare items, so she gave me the makeup items citing “they would look good on you”:

Colour surge eye shadow duo in 02 like Mink (1.6g); All about shadow trio includes: 06 Pink Chocolate, 2W Blushed, 24 Angel Eyes (1.9g); Chubby Stick lip balm in 06 Woppin’ Watermelon; High impact mascara sample
Then she went home and dug through her other unused gwp palettes and gave me this gem:

All About Shadow duo in 14 Strawberry Fudge (1g), Soft-pressed powder blusher in 20 Mocha Pink (1.8g)
It’s ideal up my alley – neutral eye shadows with a rosy nude blush – how could I refuse?

One day I identified along with her while she went to the drugstore to get her StriVectin eye cream, and there was a StriVectin rep there who insisted I take this complimentary sample, just for being there. Tamam!

StriVectin Intensive Illuminating Serum 7ml
This same coworker is also a regular cross-border buyer – for the non-Canadians out there, this is when Canadians drive about an hour and a half south to Buffalo (or whatever American city is closest) to shop. [Fun fact: an estimated 90 percent of Canadians live within 161 kilometers (100 miles) of the U.S. border]  While the Canadian to us dollar exchange rate hasn’t been stellar, often the deep discounts and better selection make it worthwhile.  My coworker went cross-border shopping a couple of times and came back with a lip products each time for me:

Loonie for scale (for you non-Canadians, a Loonie is our $1 coin, it’s slighter larger than a quarter)
The orange eos she got for me because “I haven’t seen that colour in Canada and I know you like those”, and the Vaseline Lip therapy Rosy Lips because I pointed out seeing it on I am appeal Bee’s blog, and my coworker squealed and said she wanted it too. Of course, it’s not available in Canada so she brought back one for each of us last weekend.  She refuses to take money for them so I repay her by getting coffee for her in return.

Consonant Skincare opened a new store location in the heart of the financial district in downtown Toronto.  At their grand opening, they gave out these goody bags with a complimentary full-sized natural Foaming face wash ($18 value) plus a bunch of samples, including the DHE Mask, Ultra Moisturizing organic face Cream, and HydrExtreme serum.  I can’t wait to try everything!  I’m also very curious about their sunscreen, called The best Sunscreen, which is a physical / mineral sunscreen SPF30 that’s got a tint.

Lastly, I have a friend who has constant access to all sorts of appeal freebies as part of her job. I envy this aspect of her job but it would be a hazardous environment for me.  It’s great that I still get to reap the rewards of her gratis though!

Tresemme perfectly (un)done Waves Sea Salt Spray, Sally Hansen complete beauty parlor Manicure nail polish in 405 hey there Pretty, CoverGirl XL nail Gel polish in 710 whole Lotta Guava, Neutrogena CoolDry sport SPF60 sunscreen, Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb
She used so lots of items to me but I had to restrain myself – I honestly really do not need any of it (well except for the sunscreen, that’s always needed).  I cannot wait to try those nail polishes, especially the CoverGirl XL nail Gel – I had been eyeing those ever considering that I saw the new displays.  Thanks for the loot!

I think it’s official: I’m now a charity case. It used to be that I would be the one passing all my makeup to my friends and now the roles are reversed.

So is this bending the policies of my No-Buy?
