Mark your calendars…


On January 20th, it’s FREE make-up for everyone!!!

Because of a major lawsuit filed against department stores in California in 2003, stores like Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s are being forced to give away $175 million worth of beauty products nationwide, for free, to anybody who walks into their stores. Shoppers only get one item per cosmetic company, while supplies last.

And this isn’t the cheap stuff either…think Chanel, Christian Dior, Clarins, Lancome, etc.  Participating stores include:




Neiman Marcus


Saks Fifth Avenue

…and many more so click here for complete details on what freebies you can expect to score!  And here’s the legal filing for those of you that are into “rules”.

    Is it really for anyone who walks into stores because the case site says its only for people who purchased a product from that store within a certain time frame… so will you have to show receipts? or really just walk in?!

    Here’s what I found out:
    No prior proof of purchase or receipt is required to take part in this settlement offer. All that is required is that the customer show up at the stores and fill out a short form stating that they had bought something at the store during the period of 1994-2004 (no proof required).

    Here’s the info, it is only specific items from specific lines involved in the lawsuit. Here is the URL describing which cosmetics and which stores:
    The clerk at the Dillards counter said you will need a paper from the settlement, but I can’t tell what from this website explanation. Maybe you are right, maybe they will take your word for it. But you probably can’t guess items once you get there, so read this.

    I went in today, but instead of receiving one item per cosmetics company, it was one item per department store. Kind of a bummer since I had my one item per company planned out already, but still got some good stuff.
