Old news

Sorry I'm late on this one:
Macy's, Dillard's and Saks Fifth Avenue, among other chains, will be giving away free cosmetics on Jan. 20 as part of a 5 year old 175 million dollar settlement involving price fixing on beauty products. Other stores named in the suit were Nordstrom, Nieman Marcus, and Target. Brands include Clinique, Lancome, Clarins, Guerlain, Givenchy, Chanel, Calven Klein, L,Oreal, Christian Dior, Boucheron, and Cody. The offer will last until all of the products in a particular store are distributed.
I think what makes this newsworthy, is that it is a sign of recession. It's also going to draw a lot of people into the stores that otherwise might not be shopping.

Always up for free lipstick. I had order a subscription of Cosmo Girl for my cousin..and I ended up with their freebie some make up looking not quite like a cell phone, but I sent that to her, too.

Sorry, about the typos..they are even worse in my comments to people.

Thanks for reading. I just saw Revloutionary Road yesterday. My friend had been so hyped and then she hated it. Definitely, some great performances and a lot to think about...then and now.

I hope its a warmer snow there than here. Its just cold.
