If you're the type of person who prowls the aisles of Sephora on a regular basis, testing new cosmetics could be a dream job. Many makeup and cosmetics companies look for consumers to try out new products. Check out their corporate websites, especially if you're located near a company's headquarters.
Some fashion and beauty magazines also offer contests to be a reader tester. Look in your favorite magazine, fill out a survey and you might find a box of cosmetics at your door just waiting for your opinion. Companies want to know how you experience the makeup — is it good value for the price; how does it look on the face or lips; is it durable, easy to apply, and with a good color selection? You'll get to try out new products for yourself, as well as be a part of putting the "finishing touches" on makeup products for consumers everywhere.
