MAC Cosmetics..

Do the MAC stores here provide free samples?

I'm too afraid to ask the sales people there, in case they say no and snarl at me!

BTW, I'm talking about the salespeople at Villagio...they're very intimidating-maybe they're nice people, but they kinda scare me lol! But I wouldn't know about the chicks at the MAC store in city centre.

anyway, yeah thanks!

Not sure about take away samples, but my friend goes in all the time to get her make up done for free.  She usually buys one piece and all's good

Does your friend go to the Villagio or City Centre branch? 

And Thanks to everyone who replied!

And yeah they're gorgeous, which is another reason why they intimidate me! I feel like a lesser human lol!

In the UK, they provide samples and stuff. But Qatar's kinda different when it comes to certain things. So I was just wondering about the whole sytem of free MAC samples in Qatar.

I dont go to that shop, but I have a theory why they are so beautiful. Well,....they spend hours doing make-overs on each other. As to the free samples? They are so used to have all this stuff on their faces, that even when they have a day off they need to put it on. As they don't want to spend money on something they have lying around, for people they do not know, like  or what ever..... Or they are better off giving the samples to their friends in other shops, who will give them in return samples from their shops. So no wonder they dont give any! Does this sound logic?

conspiracy theories are fun.

You could be right...or not lol!

Sorry i had to go for an attractive title, so people would visit this board and answer the question, woo!

I'm so cunning. 

Bottom line-has anyone actually asked for a sample and got one?

Cuz I'm getting mixed answers here.......

I bought some makeup at the Mac in city centre and they did give me a sample lip gloss......didnt even ask them....they seem to be more friendly than the villagio store but am sure if you ask them they should give it to

Don't be intimidated by attractive sales people in any shop. After all, they are being paid to entertain customers.

By shoeaddict• 7 years 2 months ago.

dnt even bother to get samples at MAC,theyre rude,rude and again RUDE.bobbi brown cosmetics give better samples and services.

well, MAC has a shop in both Villagio and City Centre. However, CC branch is still closed for renovation.I believe all their products are up to date with the brand's latest collection. sadly, Lipstick's new arrivals normally takes 2-3 days before it sells out. I heard The Hello Kitty limited edition is due to arrive on the 27th. Lovely shades,cute casings. You might want to check that out.
