Free Cosmetics

HOUSTON (AP) - Free cosmetics are being given away at some department stores in Texas as part of a national class-action lawsuit settlement.      

A 2003 California lawsuit filed against department stores and cosmetics manufacturers alleged the businesses conspired to keep prestige cosmetics prices high.      

The case was settled with no wrong doing admitted. The result was a $175 million giveaway in which each eligible consumer gets one free piece of make up or fragrance worth from $18 to $25 - on the honor system.      

Ginger Reeder, a Dallas-based spokeswoman for Neiman Marcus, tells the Houston Chronicle that there will be one table, flanked by signs full of legalese, where the products will be available.       Anyone is eligible for one freebie from Chanel, Christian Dior, Lancome or others if they purchased department store cosmetics between May 1994 and July 2003.      

The freebies will stop in seven days or when they are all gone, whichever comes first.
