Meilily New Product Alert!

Introducing LCFA & OPI Breathe Life Nail Lacquer

Nail polish maker, OPI, has announced their new nail polish called Breathe Life, developed specifically to help the Lung Cancer Foundation of America (LCFA). OPI’s Breathe Life nail polish was created for the Lung Cancer Foundation of America to increase awareness about lung cancer, with OPI  making a donation to the Foundation to help find a cure and even sponsoring ads for the campaign.

Available starting April 1, 2009, the new OPI Breathe Life LCFA shade appears to be a soft cloudy sky blue color that looks intriguingly wearable for a blue nail polish. Given that practically any shade of blue nail polish is fashionable right now, OPI’s Breathe Life nail polish may be launching at just the perfect time.

To find out more about the Lung Cancer Foundation of America, see their website at LCFAmerica.org, the LCFA lung cancer facts page, and the LCFA Breathe Life campaign information page.

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

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
