Freeeeeeeeeeee Makeup....

NOT!

I don't know if any of you had heard of this news this week, but this past Tuesday, there were major department stores giving away brand-name makeup due to some sort of lawsuit. Yep! They had to give away $175 million in free makeup. They were supposed to give away the makeup for 7 days or until supplies ran out (whichever came first). Stores included; Macy's, Dillard's, Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom's, Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Well, they sure ran out fast!!!! I went to Macy's and Dillard's on Wednesday and they were supposedly done with the free handouts!!! I could tell that the makeup consultants were tired of explaining this to all the customers - or shall I say all the beggars like me. lol!

Anyhoo, if you're at one of these stores over the weekend, it won't hurt to ask about it.

The temperature is finally dropping here in Dallas. Today we were in the 80's. Tonight it drops into the low 30's with a high of 42 degrees tomorrow. Okay, I know that many of you have a lot colder weather than this. I just thought I'd let you know that we're finally getting some of it, too. The way the weather is here in Texas, though, we'll probably be back in the 80's by Sunday. lol!

Have a great weekend, friends!

Sorry you were not able to get any free makeup.

I was at the mall on Tuesday - wish I would have known! But thanks for filling me in!

The weather here in OKC has been beautiful for the past two days but the cold air came in today and we are expecting freezing rain Mon and Tues. I'm not looking forward to it!! :)

Lee said...

Aw man I totally would've done that. I love free things!
I'm a cheapskate. Always have been, always will be.
I deleted 10 friends on facebook to get a free whopper!

I really need to watch the news more. LOL
Sorry you didn't get there in time. I love a deal...and free is the best one out there. I will totally stop by Macy's tomorrow and check it out.
This whole season has been crazy weather...everywhere.
Have a great weekend friend,
Mimi

Weird about the makeup! Wonder what happened!? Im not going to the mall anytime soon, but what a great deal for whoever can get in on it.

Our high was 71 today and tomorrow our high is like 52! I hate the big changes.. but on Tuesday we're supposed to be back up to 73!

Have a great weekend!!! =)

Hi! Thanks for the warm welcome to the blogging world. I can see this is slightly addictive.

Don't worry about not getting the free makeup. You are beautiful and probably don't even need any makeup!

I actually read that in our local paper. Sorry that they didn't have any.

The weather here was finally pretty. It got close to 60 and right now at 1:30 am it's 49. That's way better than last week. I don't expect it to stick around though.

Love and Prayers,

Daphine, you crack me up! LOL! That would be me... I would race out to find they were out, too! I'm not going out in this chill weather. We poor little Floridiots are just chilled to the bone at 60 degrees! LOL! And this freezing weather is not agreeing with me at all.

Sending love and warmth your way.

XO,

Sheila :-)

they ran out here is Mo on the first day also. I never even knew about this until the news was reporting on it and how they were all out. Bummer. I didn't get mine and I buy the stuff all the time. I think alot of women who don't even wear or buy the products got in line for a expensive freebie. They shouod have sent their loyal money paying customers a coupon or something. Oh well, woo hoo for the ones who cashed in.

On the Sams cards, we used to have one, but since all the kids have moved out on their own, it wasn't saving much money for just 2 people. If fact it was costing us money. We would go in and end up buying like $100.00 worth of just stuff we didn't even know we needed. Like coats, vitimans,landscape lighting, tents, you name it. I never checked out in that store that I didn't spend over $100.00 dollars. Sams does have cheap priced car tires there. Cheaper than everywhere else. Buying tires there will pay for your membership. keep us posted on any good deals you may find. I may have to sign up again.

Heather said...

wow what a bummer! i didn't even hear anything about that or i would have definitely gone there to get some myself!

April said...

Hey Daphine,

I saw something about this on the news a few nights ago, but I caught only the tail end of it. Like you said, it's definitely worth asking about...I'm all about freebies! :)

Happy Saturday, sweet friend!

Alicia said...

Oh how cool!! I didn't even hear anything about it.

I wonder why they had to give all that away??

Beth E. said...

Hello to you, my friend! Sorry you weren't able to take advantage of the free makeup.

We've had temperatures in the teens at night, but it is supposed to be gradually warming up over the next few days.

Hope you have a great weekend1

Stacey said...

How did you know about that? I hate missing out on that deal.

Kristin said...

I met my Aunt for lunch on Thursday and she told me about it. So, my 2 year old and I headed over to Macy's. They had a choice of 2 products, so I got some Clinique moisturizer. That little jar of lotion made my day! Ha!

I heard about this the other day. I didn't get a chance to stop by and take advantage, hmmm thinking if I stop by Dillard's tomorrow if they will have anything. Oh well...the thought was nice..uh? Thought about ya today...we went to Sam's....that place is soooo dangerous for the pocketbook. I added a jogging set to my grocery list there...I couldn't pass it up. Ok, I'm starting to ramble. Hoping your weekend is going great!

Michele said...

Thanks for letting me know about this, I'll have to check it out. My luck is like yours though, I'll get there and the lady at the counter will probably have to stop herself from rolling her eyes while explaining they're out. Have a blessed day!

Debra said...

Oh Daphine...I didn't hear about that but would have loved to have gotten in on it! lol

We finally had a cold batch of weather too but the weather today is in the low 70's and the sky is that lovely shade of blue that only God can make! No crayon in a box can match it!

Love you, my friend. Happy Sunday!

Wow, now that would've been great! I'm always late on stuff like this. :)
