Yesterday, when LA department stores started giving away cosmetics as part of a class-action lawsuit, shoppers lined up around LA. Despite the crowds, though, when we checked today, it seemed that stores hadn't yet run out of stock. No one we spoke with this morning seemed confident that remaining supplies would last long, though, with many reporting lines out the door. Here's a rundown of where you can still score:
Macy's: While the Westside Pavilion, Beverly Center and Westfield Century City branches have all run out of stock, the giveaway is still on at locations in Downtown LA, Glendale, Eagle Rock, Burbank, Manhattan Beach, Culver City, and Sherman Oaks (where there's been a line outside since 8am.)
Neiman Marcus: There's a line out the door in Beverly Hills, but the Topanga store has depleted its supply.
Nordstrom: Still freebies to be had at The Grove (with another line stretching outside), Glendale Galleria and Westside Pavilion—but all advised us to arrive as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Saks: At press time, the giveaway was still on in Beverly Hills.
Bloomingdales: Both the Beverly Center and Westfield Century City locations have run out of product. We weren't able to connect to the Sherman Oaks outpost despite multiple attempts.—Erin Magner
