Like most people today, I get some interesting correspondence. Email’s one thing, add in blogs, and then some over on MUA.
Either I should be giving up the day-job and doing personal research for rich thick people. Or this is speculative troll-y-fishing. Or fishing for info. Possible with a BBB motive. Maybe worse. Eeeps.
Ockham’s razor would suggest mere simple stupidity.
Who knows. Whatever.
Here you go, some bonus copy-pasting, with some nice chocolate at the end so we can all live happily ever after:

Hmmm: good question!
1. If I were you, I’d do some Googling. Just doing a search for “free sample blush” and trawling through the pages of results, for ex.
2. Find company contact info and email them directly, there’s no harm in asking: the worst they’d do is say “no.” Smaller ones may be keener.
3. Cheap sample-sizes from Silk Naturals (really good makeup colours, and they send free samples with orders too), and Etsy sellers.
4. Ask around on the MUA boards: the makeup up, skincare, bath, etc. I’d ask at at least a couple of different times during the day, a few hours apart, for best likelihood of responses, so as to get people on MUA through the day and in different time-zones. On the later posts, say something like “I asked this earlier, just asking again for the night crowd.”
Note, from notepad:
I’m not really actively into swapping; the swaps I’ve done have been individual-to-individual and casual. As it were.
