Great Nail Polish Swatches and Free Nail Polish!

Monday, January 26th, 2009 | Free Stuff, Nail Polish, Photos | Comments Off on Great Nail Polish Swatches and Free Nail Polish!

Recently, Meilily has become addicted to some really useful nail polish swatch sites with photos showing what various nail colors look like in real life.  Both sites have nice close-up photos and detailed product comparisons.  Checking out these swatch sites is an easy way to try before you buy!
Scrangie
The Polish Addict

Currently both sites feature the same special deal for a free bottle of Misa nail polish (through Misa Cosmetics) until the end of January.  (See the Scrangie free polish post and Polish Addict post for details.)

Cosmetics Settlement Distribution Has Begun: Get Your Free Product!

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009 | Beauty and the Law, Free Stuff, Hot Happenings, Makeup, Skincare | 2 Comments

How Meilily got a free cosmetics product courtesy of In re Cosmetics Cases

Now that the In re Cosmetics Cases settlement distribution date is upon us, here is what it was like getting a free settlement product this morning…

I stopped by my local Nordstrom when it opened today at 10 am to pick up the free product owed to me under the cosmetics settlement (ok, maybe”owed” is not the right word). What can I say, I was very excited to see how the settlement products would actually be distributed, and I wanted to be there early!

When I arrived, Nordstrom already had tables set up at the mall entrance near the cosmetics department, and a small line had already started forming along a roped path.  If I didn’t know better I would have thought there was a fancy special event happening there.  (Luckily the line seemed to die down quickly after the initial 10 am crowd.) › Continue reading

BeautyHabit.com Clearance Sale + Free Shipping Code!

Thursday, January 8th, 2009 | Fragrance, Free Stuff, Makeup, Sales, Skincare, Stores | Comments Off on BeautyHabit.com Clearance Sale + Free Shipping Code!

BeautyHabit.com just announced their clearance sale and also another free shipping code for orders over $40. Trust me, this is a good thing! BeautyHabit.com has a great selection of higher-end candles and beauty products, and rarely offers discount codes (free shipping usually starts at orders of $100). The sale includes products by Sundari, The Art of Shaving, Comptoir Sud Pacifique, Lollia, and more. Note: Sales of clearance items are final, so do choose wisely!

BeautyHabit.com Free Shipping Code: FRESHSTART (for orders of $40 or more)

When: January 8-16, 2009

Meilily recommends checking out the BURN candles on clearance – These candles (developed by the founder of Studio at Fred Segal) are supposed to be fantastic!

*Btw, don’t forget the free shipping / free samples BeautyHabit code I posted about previously for orders of only $35 or more!

Beauty and the Law: Class Action Cosmetic Cases Settlement – Consumers Get One Free Product

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009 | Beauty and the Law, Free Stuff, Hot Happenings, Makeup, Stores | 3 Comments

A while back there was a class action lawsuit brought against several large cosmetics companies and department stores by their customers, claiming conspiracy to fix the price of cosmetics (a.k.a. agreeing to never let cosmetics go on sale) between 1994 and 2003.  Come to think of it, I always thought it was strange that department stores only offered gift with purchases for cosmetics rather than, say, just a 25% off sale in the beauty department.

Anyway, the class action lawsuit has apparently settled, and as part of that settlement, the cosmetics companies and department stores involved, including Estee Lauder, L’Oreal, Nordstrom, and Macy’s, will be offering relevant consumers…one free product of their choice starting January 20, 2009.  See the settlement website, http://www.cosmeticssettlement.com, for details, or keep reading for more information, a list of participating retailers, and a list of available products› Continue reading

Meilily's Nordstrom Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase 2008

Meilily's Nordstrom Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase '08

I have never really been tempted by Estee Lauder skincare or cosmetics, but the current Nordstrom Estee Lauder gift with purchase offer really made me pay attention.  Also, a study, recently mentioned in Allure magazine, wherein Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Serum Concentrate was shown to help prevent UV damage caught my attention too.

So, in the name of scientific investigation I went to Nordstrom and picked up the current Estee Lauder gift with purchase. Read on for shopping strategies and product photos.  › Continue reading

Amazing Estee Lauder Gift at Nordstrom

Thursday, October 30th, 2008 | Fragrance, Free Stuff, Makeup, Sales, Stores | 2 Comments

Last Days!  Nordstrom Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase

If you are considering purchasing or trying anything from Estee Lauder anytime in the near future, this looks like a great time to buy.

Between October 15, 2008 and November 2, 2008, Nordstrom is offering a really nice and customizable gift with purchase package that includes 7 skincare and beauty items along with a multicolor cosmetic bag. It is truly a “package,” because it contains several non-filler gift items that you can pick and choose from yourself.  This current offer is one of the best gift with purchase packages I have seen from Estee Lauder, and the minimum purchase of $39.50 is pretty manageable.  › Continue reading
