What? Free makeup?

Apparently, the big department stores were having us little people pay a little more than we should have for makeup - or so we allege and they deny. But to make us feel better, companies like Lancome, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Clarins and quite a few others are offering one free item to each customer. You can partake of this "giveaway" at large department stores like Nordstrom, Macy's, Dillards, and all those others that frankly aren't available in my market. It is supposed to last until January 26th, but will be over when supplies run out. I visited Nordstrom this morning and the line was reasonable and the gals were so helpful. There were serums, lotions, perfume and mascara. Since I am still trying to find a good mascara, I chose a Lancome mascara - we'll see. Have you already been? What did you get?
*** In the stores that I walked by, the free makeup was a designated area near the makeup counters. You will be able to tell, there will be a line. Hopefully, not a long one. Here is a complete list of stores that are participating:
Bergdorf Goodman
Boston Store
Carson Pirie Scott
Neiman Marcus
Saks Fifth Avenue
