  • Because we're all FREE obsessed (especially in this crappy economy) -- we had to share: For the next six days only, Macy's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales are giving away beauty products because of a lawsuit settlement. (This is for real!) While supplies last, you can get free stuff from Dior, Chanel, Estee Lauder (you can read reviews of their products here), Clinique (see this list of their best and worst goodies) and Lancome (yes, they are giving away mascara -- see every beauty editor's fave here).

  • Did anyone score the freebies yet?

  • Get other free stuff here

  • Avoid crowds and still save a buck with these cheapie products

    • To Rabbit391: I\'m glad that you are passionate about the products that you sell; however please note that you obviously have a biased opinion. There are a tremendous amount of fantastic products on the market, which are sold by various companies. Obviously you didn\'t purchase any of the brands that were involved in the suit, so I\'m a bit puzzled as to why you are commenting on any of this anyway. Regarding the news article: As for me, they were out by the time that I got there. I was disappointed that I wasn\'t compensated when I was part of the class action suit. I also was upset that I received a \"chain style\" email that was telling women that they could go REGARDLESS of whether they had ever purchased or not. With no way to track this, other than the signed registry, the companies did nothing to ensure that the people from the lawsuit actually got what they WON in the suit. Sad...

    • It is the truth...I didn\'t believe it at first so I called my local Macy\'s they told me it will be until the 26th,since I live in a small town I was able to go in,choose what I wanted and get out in less than 5 minutes.

    • I sell Avon and only use Avon products, whether its skincare or color cosmetics. Our products are far superior to those pricey products. Even if they are free, I don\'t want them!!

    • The first shall be last, and the last shall be first. You all should be ashamed of yourselves, I mean how stupid, I can\'t believe what some of you are saying. Those products that you all rushed to get will be gone before you know it, and then what? You gonna buy more? Doubt it! By the way on the news they said they had the stuff at Target too, but don\'t know why. I am sure some of you do, considering it would be the end of your existence if you couldn\'t tell someone all the \"free stuff\" you got, and on top of it, weren\'t even entitled to it. Truth hurts.

    • I went to my local Macy\'s store this morning and there were still two products to choose from so I chose the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. There were only two people in line ahead of me so I only waited a minute or two so it was well worth it. They had maybe 25-30 of each product left. The other was Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief. I don\'t think the product will last thru the weekend so I\'m glad I went early today.

    • For those of you who may not have actually heard what the cosmetics lawsuit is actually about, this post offers an explanation: Essentially, the suit claimed that the department stores and cosmetics companies agreed to not let cosmetics go on sale... Sorry to hear that some of you did not get any product, as it sounds like people who were not actually members of the settlement class got free stuff. It\'s sad to hear about those rushing to multiple stores (due to either misinformation or perhaps something else entirely) - The settlement terms state that there is to be one product per settlement class member.
