From Luxaholics: Tuesday, January 20 is Inauguration Day and it’s also national Free Makeup Day! As part of a class action settlement, $175 million worth of cosmetics will be distributed for a maximum of seven days at scores of department stores like Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Saks, Dillard’s, Nordstrom and the list goes on.
Some of the products available are: Coco Mademoiselle Body Lotion by Chanel, Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair, Lancôme Cils Design Pro Mascara and Very Irresistible Givenchy Eau de Toilette. Get this beauty booty while supplies last!
I was highly skeptical of this and replied to Jessica this quip… Read the details, you have to have purchased one of the items before during the time frame given? and how would they know this? credit card records? I doubt the class action suit is real, just clever marketing to get you to come to the makeup counter today for free items just like any other “gift” they give with purchase. Oh, and I love how they tie it into the inauguration, good one.
But, I’m wrong, it’s first come first serve.
Jessica sent me this info but you need to act fast!
It is a real class action suite (http://news.findlaw.com/andrews/pl/mas/20050422/20050422azizian.html). Because I think that it would be too hard for everyone to go through their old receipts they are allowing anyone to go:
And even if you do feel victimized and raped by this horrible example of torture, don’t worry about finding your receipt from October of 1996 for a $12 eyeliner. You don’t have to prove that you actually bought anything from any of these companies in order to take part in this silly, exorbitant plunder. Since the stuff is being given away free on a first-come, first-served basis tomorrow, the true alleged “victims” in this case may not even comprise any of the swag recipients. And that’s not the point of this lawsuit.
Anyone can just show up, tomorrow morning, at any of the stores listed here and get one of the cosmetics and perfumes specified <http://www.cosmeticssettlement.com/> free of charge. (Guys, here’s an idea to please your wife or girlfriend for free–go pick up some free perfume for her, courtesy of a dumb lawsuit. Or stock up so you won’t have to spring for a Valentine’s Day gift, next month.)
