Because I’m based in Singapore, so my focus is on the availability of free or affordable international shipping. If you’re based in US where most of these sites operate, then shipping shouldn’t be much of a concern for you.
In addition, do note that out of the list, I have only placed order with Everyday Minerals and Lumiere. The others were information obtained through the forums and some via the Mineral Makeup Blog. Although I’ve verified the information, but please go through the website in case anything has been missed out here before placing your order.
And feel free to add to the list via the comments, but please, only about free or affordable mineral makeup samples.
