On a somewhat related note, Sephora sent me a birthday gift this year, clearly not to be outdone by Anthropologie’s birthday gift! As a Sephora Beauty Insider (free membership) I received a coupon redeemable for a free birthday beauty gift set at Sephora.

New MAX Factor: Vivid Impact Lipcolor & 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper Mascara

Friday, May 22nd, 2009 | Makeup, Photos | Comments Off on New MAX Factor: Vivid Impact Lipcolor & 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper Mascara

Meilily Product Testdrive!
Just tried two of the latest makeup items from MAX Factor

MAX Factor Vivid Impact Lipcolor in Rose Rage
Made with shea butter, MAX Factor’s new semi-sheer Vivid Impact Lipcolor comes in a range of pure pigment shades designed by P&G Global Creative Design Director Pat McGrath. According to MAX Factor, “The ultra rich, pure pigment lipcolor offers head-turning looks from classic to bold, but always vivid.”

I tried this lipstick in Rose Rage, a pretty mauve rose shade with a subtle and trendy hint of fuschia. The creamy and moisturizing color starts out a sheer pink, and is buildable for more oomph. If you want to wear the latest bright pink lipstick featured by magazines and on runways but you just want to head to the grocery store, this is a lipstick shade for you.

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
