Millions of dollars of cosmetics products will be given away

Denise Goolsby The Desert Sun January 20, 2009

As part of a class action settlement, $175 million worth of free cosmetics products will be distributed to members of the class action suit beginning today, for a maximum of seven days, on a first-come, first-served basis.

The products will be distributed at stores owned by the Retailer Defendants, including Gottschalks and Macy's.

The give-away settles a price-fixing suit.

A class member will be eligible to receive, while supplies last, a maximum of one free cosmetic product from one of the manufacturers from which he or she purchased department store cosmetics during the class period, May 29, 1994 through July 16, 2003, from a list of products from companies including Chanel, Inc., Christian Dior Perfumes, Inc., The Estee Lauder Companies, Inc., and L'Oreal USA, Inc.

No rainchecks will be issued.

I was going to go down to Macy's and pick up some stuff, but they aren't giving away anything I'm interested in. Mostly perfume products.

Pick up something & sell it on ebay so you can buy something you want.

LOL not really, I use to wear only clinique make-up and you can only get it at Macy's/Dillards or what use to be Robinsons May. I had a Robinsons card so I use to typically go there but then they were bought out by Macy's. I work at a construction site, I wear jeans, t-shirt/polo shirt, no makeup and I don't do my hair. I had to go get some makeup after work because I was going out that night and the chick that was working the counter at Macy's at first was basically ignoring that I was even there and helping everyone else. So I knew what I wanted so I started getting it myself, the stuff that wasn't behind the counter that is. She then came over with her snotty attitude and told me I wasn't allowed to get my own stuff. I said well if you could find some time to help me then I wouldn't have to. She then rudely asked me what I wanted and so I told her my list of items. She then said, you are aware this stuff is pretty spendy right???? I said, well yes, as a matter of fact I have been buying this stuff for 10 years now but if you don't feel comfortable helping me maybe your manager will. She then said she would help me in just a moment after she made a call. Next thing I know there was a security guard standing by the counter while she got my stuff. I wasn't sure if she thought I was going to run with my foundation or what. So after that I started going to Dillards for my makeup.

You could probably make it happen, but it wouldn't be the right kind.

Most of the women who work the makeup counters at these stores are usually bored housewives just trying to get out of the house while their hubby is bangin the secretary anyway. I find it funny they look down their noses at others.

I got my free makeup. Estee Lauder night serum and 2 Clinique moisturizer surges (they let my kids pick stuff).
