Nationwide makeup giveaway Tuesday

January 19, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
Several department stores will be giving away free makeup, skin care products and perfumes Tuesday, and they're expecting long lines.

It is the result of a class action lawsuit accusing the stores of conspiring to fix prices because the makeup and perfumes never went on sale.

As part of the settlement, retailers will give away $175 million worth of merchandise.

You are allowed one item from a list of 19 items. Among the brands are Lancome, Clinique, L'Oreal and Chanel.

Stores involved include Macy's, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
