La la la la la - she's got the look

Cosmetics companies have agreed to give away $175 million dollars worth of products to settle a price-fixing lawsuit -- that's according to lawyers involved in the case. The settlement, which must be approved by a federal judge, involves some of the country's largest cosmetics manufacturers and retailers. The giveaway is expected to take place in about a year, and would involve products specially manufactured for the occasion, according to lawyers involved in the case...

No receipts would be required to get a free product...Defendants in the suit include cosmetics manufacturers Estee Lauder, L'Oreal, Clarins Boucheron, Chanel, Christian Dior, Conopco and Guerlain; and retailers Bloomingdale's, Dillard's, Federated Department Stores, Gottschalk's, May Department Stores, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks and Target.

Once the products are ready, customers will have only one seven-day period to claim their free goods. They will probably be given only one or at most two products apiece. [link 1, link 2, link 3]

I believe I have some free loot due to me, that's for sure!

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy...
To the person that came up with the idea of a tinted self-tanner that will show you potential streaks before the product "sets", I keeees you! I look tropical islicious right now...

I'm just a girl - guess I'm some kind of freak
Feeling like a whiter shade of pale right now? I know I am... Well sunless.com has a list of the ten best drugstore self-tanners. They also have a list of the ones to avoid -- surprisingly enough names like Estee Lauder and Lancome made that list. You can find more reviews, and how to choose, here.

And why stop with self-tanner when you're in the health and beauty section? Make-Up Diva can help you answer questions like "how to get rid of dark circles" and "how to get rid of under-eye bags". And unfortunately something I'm going to have to start dealing with since hitting the big 3-0 -- "are cheap eye creams as good as department store ones". Don't forget to sign up for the handy-dandy weekly newsletter, too.

Last but not least, one of my favorite sites out there is Cosmetic Connection. They have excellent product reviews by brand (a few of my favorites are Stila, Aveda, Origins, BeneFit, and MAC) -- including drugstore lines. I found the mascara report (part 1, part 2) really helpful. I have friends that would like the "Rosacea 101 Guide". And they also have a great weekly newsletter as well.

What? I had to counter-act all of the football talk somehow...
