Free makeup

News is going around that several department stores will be offering FREE makeup for 7 glorious days. There is no catch here, and this is no scam. Why? Read the following article clip which also states the stores that will be doing this in the next week:

As part of a class action settlement, $175 million worth of free cosmetics products will be distributed to members of the class for a maximum of seven days, while supplies last, on a first come, first served basis, beginning on January 20, 2009. No rainchecks will be issued. The products will be distributed at stores owned by the Retailer Defendants (see list immediately below).

The stores owned by the Retailer Defendants that will be participating in the settlement product distribution are the following:

Bergdorf Goodman
Boston Store
Carson Pirie Scott
Neiman Marcus
Saks Fifth Avenue

Anyone who bought certain products at certain retailers between May 29, 1994, and July 16, 2003, will get the free stuff. However, shoppers don't have to have receipts or prove they bought the items; they just have to sign a form stating they purchased one or more of the products between those dates.

Like we would remember what and when we bought makeup back then. I'm pretty sure everyone has so we all qualify :) It ends January 27th, so be sure to get your share. Wish I would have had more time yesterday since I was getting my hair done at the mall. The lines were crazy though, so I'll be coming back this week!

Too bad MAC isn't part of it. I absolutely love their stuff!
