    Im just wondering about how big this would be…. any ideas?

    • jj

      The tub is about the size of a quarter. Hope that helps. The brush is about as wide as a highlighter marker and around 1 inch long. The sample is perfect for your purse.

      • karen

        really, a one inch brush? from the picture it certainly looks a little bigger, im not sure i can even hold a one inch brush! lol
        kind of disappointing, I was thinking of ordering two…

  2. cheri

    Thanks for posting this!! I got some for my 14 year old daughter’s Easter basket. She has been using mine and loves BE now so this is perfect…thanks again 🙂

  3. Savannah

    Darn. The color I would need is out of stock.

  4. Kim

    Thanks, I’m going to put some in my daughter’s Easter basket too!

  5. Delene

    Thanks Collin I ordered 2 shades and followed the link from an earlier poster for everyday mineral got 7 samples for 2.43 plus the oreo coupon (2) and Everyday food Magazine..a GREAT DAY for me so far 🙂

  6. MamaJ

    It only let me get 2 shades, but I also got the two other free samples so $1.08 total for me. Oh! Don’t forget eBates! It’s 4% cashback 🙂

  7. Tuyet

    I got two shades for free and 1 free brush during Sephora event in a goodies bag.

      Be sure to check your CC info. I got the same message; I accidentally entered the wrong exp. date. Once corrected I was able to checkout as a guest without signing up.

  9. Lissette

    I just ordered all the freebies. Thanks Collin!

  10. Lin

    Perfect for travel size! Got 2 🙂

  11. Darcey

    This is awesome!! I don’t use much so this should last me a while! Thanks!

  12. Jill

    I just got two samples in my shades and two other freebies from the getting started section;). Woohoo!

  13. Dona

    Got mine! Love Bare Escentuals!

  14. Amanda

    I just got 4 foundation/ brush combos & *TWO* other free samples (when you search for ‘sample’ you should sort by Price – Low to High. In addition to this freebie, there are 2 other lotion samples you can snag.) For all 6 items, I paid $1.07 (shipping & tax). What a great deal! Thanks for posting! 🙂

  15. Marissa

    Don’t know if anyone has wrote this yet, but my order wouldn’t go through so i had to call and i got EVERYTHING FOR FREE!!! Apparently she said when you order through he phone they don’t charge you for samples!
    I got different colors of the foundation AND Active Cell Renewal Night Serum Beautipod Sample AND Purely Nourishing Moisturizer: Combination Skin Packette FOR $0.00!!!
    SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW! Thanks Collin!!!!!!

    • Rachel

      All of those samples were free online, as well, as Collin highlights in her post. Are you so excited because they didn’t charge you for shipping either? I got all of the above samples online for free, with $1 charged for shipping. If you saved a buck by placing your order over the phone, good for you! That’s another dollar saved! 🙂

      p.s. I’ve always wanted to try mineral makeup so I’m particularly excited about this freebie. Thanks Collin!

    • Korva

      Thank you for your comment! I just ordered on the phone and she didn’t ask for credit card info. So it’s being shipped at no charge. Every dollar counts for me!

  16. Karla

    Will this put you on their auto-delivery, though??

    • Karla

      Disregard. I called their customer service number. They indicated that this will NOT put you on any auto-delivery. Also was able to order 2 more sets…woo hoo!! Thx, H2S!!

    • Rachel

      I didn’t think about that, but I certainly hope not! There was nothing in the order form about auto-delivery so if they try to pull that, they will have many many angry ladies to deal with. 🙂

    • Abby

      It also says on your shopping bag page “not eligible for auto delivery”

  17. Anna

    I ordered 3 samples and got them for $1!

    Thanks HTS!

  18. B

    I was actually able to make more than one order as well- second in my husbands name, not sure if that made any difference. 6 sample shades 2 lotions and 2 face creams for $2- YES PLEASE!

  19. Mandy B

    This is fantastic! Thanks for posting it! I just started using Bare Minerals and now I can figure out which color I will be in the summer. If the samples come in little jars like the photos, that should be a good bit of powder.

  20. Heather J

    Hooray! I got a free sample just like this from Sephora over the summer, and I loved it! Unfortunately, because I loved it so much, my sample was gone quickly (though I did keep the fab little brush). Thank you for the replacement, Collin!

  21. Abby

    These little jars are also perfect to keep in your purse or car as an “emergency face” if you run out to the store or picking up the kids. While most of the time I would just say screw it, people really do treat you differently and you feel different about yourself if you look sick and blotchy. A quick layer of bare minerals makes a huge difference, much more so than a powder compact.

    • kidsallgone

      “… feel different about yourself if you look sick and blotchy.”
      LMAO!! 🙂

  22. ebony

    Well they dont have a color that would fit me but I am so happy about the mini kabuki brushes! I was just going to buy one online earlier!! WOO HOO!

  23. Ruby

    its not let me order the samples. site is saying “address Fields doesn’t match with the Card.” i’m using my prepaid card. when i tried through phone, the lady on the phone was saying you have to purchase full size item for free samples.

    • Kim

      You can’t use a prepaid card on this site. Some sites allow it, some don’t. It wouldn’t take mine either. I used my regular cc.

    • Rachel

      I just called & was told the same thing about having to make a purchase to get the samples.

  24. michelle

    thanks. can’t wait to try it out

  25. Ger

    Thank You!

  26. Tina

    Most of the samples are gone. I don’t understand why someone would order all the colors? Obviously, a dark shade would not work with a light complexion, so why order it.

    • Kellie

      I ordered a few because I don’t know which color would look best on me with my normal skin tone, and also because I am actually quite tan right now so that would require a different shade. Worst come to worse it doesn’t look right, I pass it on to a better matching friend.

    • polly

      I agree! now they are out of stock

      • Rebecca

        Only the 2 lightest shades are out of stock so far.

  27. Colleen

    For anyone who missed out in their shade or is having problems everyday minerals always has free samples and you can do 7 at a time shipping is about $2 no min order required… there’s blushes bronzes bases and finishing dust in the sample section.. love them myself because I can never afford bare minerals

    • Danielle

      Thanks Colleen! I missed out on this deal and “need” more makeup but don’t want to spend a whole lot! Got the 7 samples for $2.42 shipped 🙂 Is each sample just enough for a one time use or is it a little larger?

      • Colleen

        Theyre about the same size as the Bare mineral ones.. 1 gram size and I usually can make them last a few months! Plus they always have them there so you can do it again and again! I just wish they did some eyeshadow ones more often but at 5$ or so a shadow its still better pricing and all their stuff is eco friendly which is a nice plus

        • Colleen

          I should note I don’t wear makeup all that often and only lightly so if you have more area to cover and wear daily you can prob get atleast a week or 2 out of the samples. They are like loose eye shadow size containers

      • Colleen

        Hope you love your samples!

    • wildharemom

      thanks for this tip…i went and ordered a few samples from here. I really want and NEED to start using some type of make up and have always wanted to try some mineral type. I never know where to begin so with 7 samples I might just find one i like. thanks so much! (i also ordered the Bare Minerals samples too so im looking forward to trying both.)

    • ali

      Thanks…I ordered from them also. Like you said, if you don’t cake it on everyday, these samples last a few months and you can’t beat the price. Thanks for the tip!

    • Samantha

      The Every Day minerals samples are definitely not as impressive as the Bare Minerals samples. I got 7 little 0.14 gram baggies of loose powder spilling all over the envelope… seems like $2.32 wasted.

      • Carol

        I agree, I wasted that $2.32

  28. heather

    Is this like a one time deal or does Bare Escentuals do this often? I ordered colors that were wayyy dark for my pale skin…..but figured the brushes were a good deal. Let me know ladies!!!!! I want some samples my color!!!

  29. Annie

    Thank you for all the tips!! I ordered 2 one for me & 1 for my daughter since she is new to make up this is perfect!!

  30. Elizabeth

    Thanks for the tips on the everyday minerals. I have a few samples in my (rather large) makeup train case that I never got around to using. Now I don’t feel so bad about missing out on this deal!

    • Colleen


  31. ali

    Even though they are out of the lighter shades, I found that darker shades of mineral makeup work really well on your eyelids as a base for eyeshadow. Or, you can just use them on your eyelids by themselves for a little bit of coverage without having to wear eyeshadow. Just a thought…plus, you can always use them as a blush/bronzer if the shade is too dark to wear as your regular foundation color. You shouldn’t pass up this deal!

  32. T

    Maybe recheck to thosr who missed their color. I am medium and both shades in that area were stocked. All others were not. I just wanted the 2 around my shade to test. Feeling blessed to be able to try two!!! I also took colleens advice and ordered from evetyday minerals also. If its good ill def buy. I love the cause. Thanks all.

    • rachkey

      Was your shipping only $1? My shipping is coming up at $3.95??

      • Diane

        Mine is $3.95 for shipping too! Is it because I didn’t order it yesterday?

  33. Jamie

    Did anybody else not receive the free brush with their sample? Literally, no brush was included! This is a disappointment.

    • Lauren

      I just got my package from them today and I didn’t get a brush either! 🙁

      • Brittany

        I didn’t get a brush either 🙁

    • Samantha

      The brushes are only about an inch and a half big – so don’t worry, you’re not missing much. Two of mine came with brushes, two did not.

    • stephanie

      I didn’t get a brush either! I just ordered one sample and all I really wanted was one buki brush! 🙁

  34. Karla

    Did anyone else order this and not get brushes? I ordered six of the medium beige and didn’t get one brush with any of them. Just wondering. Thanks.

    • Yoko

      I didn’t get buki brushes either. It looks like many people also didn’t get them.

    • Melani

      Same here…no brush :o(

  35. Jean a

    Just received the package today. No brushes included as promised 🙁

  36. Briana R

    Got my package today! The light came with a brush but the medium beige did not! 🙂 However, the light sample is smaller than the medium beige one 🙂 I’m very happy with it though!

  37. Carol

    I think the larger samples didn’t come with a brush, but the smaller ones did. I ordered 6 colors and 3 came with and 3 without. I really only needed 1 brush anyway, but got 3.

  38. Megan

    I didn’t recieve a brush in mine either (medium beige sample) i contacted them about the kabuki brush & they have sent out one to make up for their error!! 🙂
