Recently a friend asked some people via Facebook to sit in on a call in which her director would try to recruit new salespersons. I thought, why not? The call lasted 30 minutes and was very informative. Although my experience with direct sales has been poor in the past (my bad, I am very terrible in sales), my participation earned my friend points towards working her way up the corporate ladder, a chance for both she and me to be entered to win a Michael Kors purse, AND she sent me a full-size mascara along with various samples as a thank you.
Samples received clockwise from top left: FULL SIZE Ultimate Mascara (black, 0.28oz) and a sample of the same product, Satin Hands fragrance-free hand cream sample (0.75oz), Satin Hands peach hand cream sample (0.75oz), Botanical Effects mask (0.1oz), and a one-application color card (including three mineral eye colors, mineral cheek color, and crème lipstick)
