\"I spent a lot of money on the normal high --
Street makeup, so I went to the department store to make up with brown clothes.
\"I asked the Foundation how much it was, and she said, \'Actually, we don\'t have it right now, and I\'ll give you a free sample. \'.
\"The next day I went back and asked if they had received it and they still did not receive it and provided free samples.
\"So I kept going and gave them my number to let me know when they received the courier.
\"I was thinking that I should go and get free samples every day before I get a call.
