1. Look out for an approachable salesperson
The best time to do this is when the store is quiet, and not during the lunch hour or weekend chaos. Store employees are more likely to shower you with product samples when you’re the only friendly customer around. Hint that you’ve heard good things about the brand and really want to try the product, but you’re afraid it’ll break you out. If all else fails and the salesperson refuses to give you product samples, come back again another day and ask someone else. Remember, don’t give up.
2. Build a friendship with the store employees
If you frequent the Sephora near your office already, why don’t you build some sort of a relationship with the store employees? Say a nice “hello” every time you step into the store, and ask for help whenever you need. Even if you don’t shop very often, a salesperson will remember someone who frequents the store, is polite to everyone, and seems genuinely interested in buying their products.
3. If you’re already planning to buy the product, approach with knowledge
You’ll look less like a sample hoarder if you seem interested in the product. Start by saying, “Hey, I’ve heard about this primer from a magazine and it claims to cover up pores. I’m really interested to try it.” A Sephora makeup artist is more likely to let you dip into her precious stash of samples when you know and understand a product. Knowledge is power.
4. If you really hate talking to people, try buying makeup online.
If you shop online, on the Sephora app for example, your order will probably arrive with at least 3 product samples in the package. Sometimes, while stocks last, the app lets you choose the samples that you want to try, but they’re only available for a range of limited products. if you’re interested in the product, however, the sample could be really helpful to you.
