As part of the $175 million settlement of a class action lawsuit against several major department stores and cosmetic companies, consumers will be able to sign up to get free makeup, worth up to $25 in value starting in January, The Boston Globe reports (via Consumerist).

According to the article, the companies were spanked for colluding to prevent their products from being discounted as well as to prevent competition between stores. As a result, they will be giving away free products "to consumers who purchased specific brands of makeup, moisturizers, and fragrance products at their stores between May 29, 1994 and July 16, 2003," the article states.

What brands, and at what stores?

Oh, Aveda, Chanel, Calvin Klein, Clinique, Estee Lauder, MAC, Stila and many more, at places like Macy's, Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor and Hecht's. Check out the full list at the cosmetics settlement Web site.

If you're eligible, you also can sign up there, that is to be notified when you can pick up your free stuff.
