OPI Breathe Life Nail Lacquer Helps the Lung Cancer Foundation of America

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.

Product Pick: MAC Brow Set – Photos & Free Shipping

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009 | Free Stuff, Makeup, Photos, Product Picks | Comments Off on Product Pick: MAC Brow Set – Photos & Free Shipping

Meilily Product Pick, Product Photos & Free Shipping Alert!

Meilily:  MAC Brow Set (in Showoff)

Meilily: MAC Brow Set (in Showoff)

By now you may have heard the buzz about the new MAC Cosmetics Collection, “Brunette Blonde Redhead” (BBR), featuring makeup that is “formulated to be coiffure-complimentary.”

While all the hubbub has been about the Limited Edition BBR Mineralize Skinfinishes, I have discovered a quietly brilliant standout product from the collection – MAC Brow Set in Showoff for brunettes.

MAC Brow Set in Showoff is a unique tinted brow gel that grooms and sets brows (or other facial hair) in place while adding some shine and subtle color.  The formula lasts a long time with no flaking, and really holds brows in place.

*Oh, before I forget, MAC is offering free shipping on any order from February 24-March 1, 2009! No code needed.*

Showoff is a dark brown shade with subtle coppery-bronze shimmer, and on the brows it is much darker than it appears in the tube and in the photos.  Don’t be afraid of the color!

MAC Brow Set is the first brow product that has truly worked for my thick dark brows, and it comes in several flattering shades.

Check out more of Meilily’s photos of MAC Brow Set in Showoff… › Continue reading

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
