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

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!

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 Featured Shop: The Perfumed Court

Friday, December 12th, 2008 | Featured Shops, Fragrance, Stores | 2 Comments

Meilily Featured Shop: The Perfumed Court

Meilily Featured Shop: The Perfumed Court

Meilily Featured Shop:  The Perfumed Court

If you are familiar with the power that scents have to transform a mood, lift the spirits, or brighten a day, then you will understand my latest obsession with perfumes and fragrances.  It is not an obsession with just any and all fragrances, but an obsession with finding just the right fragrance to trigger that “ahhhh” response.

Here is where a particular online shop comes in handy:  The Perfumed Court is an online fragrance shop that really helps me pursue my fragrance search (a.k.a. obsession) without breaking the bank.  The Perfumed Court features a mind-blowing array of international fragrances, including niche fragrances that are harder to find and also fragrances that are not available in the United States.  The special part about The Perfumed Court is that they sell decants, taking original fragrances and carefully transferring them into smaller containers for resale.

Since I have always had a hard time justifying shelling out a bunch of money for a full-size bottle of perfume that I would only wear a few times, buying perfume had become for me simply impractical until recently.  After finding and trying fragrance decants from The Perfumed Court, I have become a decant convert.  Now, I will never buy a regular size bottle of fragrance again, unless it is affordable and unless I also love it.
