Apparently, the big department-store cosmetics makers were sued a few years ago for conspiring to inflate prices on their products (i.e. $50 mascara, $130 foundation, $80 lipstic, etc.) The make-up makers settled the cosmetic case (heh-heh...get it?) and that means freebies for you and me, while they last.
Here's what you have to do to get the goods. Go to any area Dillards, Macy's, Clinique and/or Estee Lauder and tell them you are there to claim your free make up from the settlement. You will have to sign a form affirming that you did, indeed, purchase stuff from them at least once between 1994-2004. This is on the honor system. You will not need to present a reciept or proof of purchase.
HURRY! You have to claim your stuff by next Tuesday 1/27, BUT the freebies are only good while supplies last, which may not be much longer.
