$175 million worth of free cosmetic products

Posted By on Mon, Jan 19, 2009 at 9:00 AM

OK, if you're not going to the Inauguration, don't fret. At least you can take part in a first-come, first-serve cosmetics giveaway worth $175 million.

From Consumerist.com:

The giveaway is the culmination of a class action suit that accused Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Bergdorf, Dillard's, Filene's, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue, among others, of fixing cosmetics prices. Though the giveaway runs from January 20-26, we'd be shocked if the products last for a full day.

For a list of the products to be distributed, check out the Cosmetics Settlement Web site.
