Breaking Beauty News: The CVS Beauty Clearance Sale is BACK!


UPDATE: please see this post for updated info.

A HUGE thanks to reader Topaz for being the very first reader to inform us that the CVS Beauty Clearance sale is coming back for another fabulous round of savings! Whoo hoo!

Topaz said the cashier at her local CVS informed her that the sale is gearing up NOW, and Topaz already spotted lots of Maybelline lipsticks, Revlon foundations, Revlon eyeshadow singles, Revlon glosses, Neutrogena glosses and Sally Hansen Crackles on clearance for 50-75% off.

So...let the madness begin (again)! Be sure to check back here soon as the info starts to filter in. As with all of the other past CVS Beauty Clearance sales, I'll do a "master list" post where you can contribute your sightings so that they'll all be in one neat and tidy place for your convenience.

If you're new to this sale, it comes around about twice a year and many, many beauty products are reduced at either 50% or 75% off. The best thing about this sale is that, once the markdowns are in the system, you can get the discounts EVEN IF YOU DON'T SEE SALE SIGNS OR CLEARANCE STICKERS ON THE MERCHANDISE. Just take some products you see mentioned here to the scanner and they will probably come up on clearance.

Thanks again, Topaz, for the fantastic news! I think I can speak for everyone when I say that we really appreciate the heads-up!

    2. Just do what I do when my BF gives me "the look". I look back at him sternly and say "Don't judge me!". Not that it shuts him up, but it makes me feel better.

  2. Oh man, I was just at CVS today. I didn't see any signs up yet. I did get the Wet n Wild Flora and Fauna collections 2 for $3 though!

  3. yeeeeeesss!!! I will definitely be picking up some Revlon singles....I skipped out on those in the winter sale and later regretted it. I'd also love some Revlon super lustrous lip glosses and some back up of my colorstay foundation! I hope this doesn't mean that they are discontinuing them though!

  10. At my CVS they had Essie Shine of times on clearance but you have to scan it for a price.

  11. Wow! The nearest CVS to me never did a clearance the last time it was spotted so maybe while it is nice out today I will take the ride and investigate! Woo hoo!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. This is not a regular clearance sale y'all! I visited three CVs's with the clearance products in hand only to be told (that too three times) that the products were marked as clearance because they will not be restocked on shelves. There were all full price; I hope CVs has a change of heart lol!

  13. Can't wait for the master list! I bookmark on my phone. Love it!

  14. I just checked two CVS locations on my lunch break. Nothing is marked yet and Clearance prices aren't scanning. I took an Essie Shine of the Times to the price scanner - both a regular price and clearance price come up, but the prices are the same. :( I guess I'll have to check again over the weekend.

  15. I went to CVS this morning but didn't see anything. Maybe it's not up yet at every CVS?

    ReplyDelete
  16. went in and the only clearance sign was on shine of the times but it rang up that the clearance price was the same as retail. gonna check back over the weekend :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Luckily, I procrastinated picking up my prescription today. I can go back tonight and check it out. AND go back tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow I went there yesterday to stock up on wet n wild. I guess I'll just have to go back on Monday

  19. My CVS had clearance stickers on some Lo'real and Maybelline products but it didn't exactly say 50 or 75% off. I'm gonna check them out like you said. Thanks this is great info.

  20. Just visited my local CVS in California. I did see many of the products mentioned here with a "Clearance, Get it While it Lasts" sticker. However, everything still scanned at full price. The cashier told me those tags indicate they will not be restocking that item. Normally, about 2 weeks after the tag appears, there is a price reduction for those items (but, it is possible they won't reduce the price). She didn't know when the tags were first put there and could only advise me to keep checking back for the price reduction.

    1. Same here. Sure hope they eventually reduce prices because there were a LOT of those stickers.

  21. I went to CVS today, too. I got 2 of the Wet and Wild 8 pans, a lipstick and a liquid eyeliner with the 2 for $3 deal. I scanned a lot of Revlon stuff and the Sally Hansen crackle nail polish and they were regular price. They are having a buy one get one half off sale on a lot of the makeup, though.

  22. I ran to CVS and managed to grab a Flora and a Fauna for 2/$3 (last one of each!) but everything else scanned regular price. boo-hiss

  23. *cries tears of joy* I'm so freakin' happy!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wet N Wild 2 for $3 includes the 5 dollar eyeshadow pans!!!! go go go last day is tomorrow

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wet n Wild $4.99 Eyeshadow pans are $1.50!!!! go go go!

  26. I don't think there's anything I've been wanting lately, but now I got to go take a look anyway...oy vey...Thanks very much for posting!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I hope my CVS stores will have the sale up soon! I went yesterday, looking for WnW's Flora&Fauna sets, but they didn't have them.

    I didn't have time to check other brands, but there were no clearance signs yet.

  28. I went to CVS tonight and found yellow "Get Them While It Lasts Clearance" stickers on Essie Luxeffects, Sally Hansen HD and Crackle polish, Neutrogena lip soothers, Neutrogena cream foundation (select colors), and Maybelline lip glosses and Expert Wear eyeshadows. However when I went to scan several of these items, like someone commented above, they all rang up full price. The sales associate watching me said that their CVS (I don't know if they have difference policies?) put those signs out up to two weeks before they would actually clearance them, and then it would be only 25% off. Maybe this isn't news to anyone else, but it certainly was to me! Even though it clearly says "Clearance" on the tag underneath the product, they are indeed full price. Anyone else think this is weird?

    1. I went to two CVS locations in my neighborhood today: the first didn't have the Flora & Fauna sets (I found them at the second). The first had the "Clearance: Get It While It Lasts" stickers up, but the prices of those items had not yet been reduced! The second didn't have any stickers up at all.

    3. I totally thought it was weird! I was SO excited about the Essie Luxeffects, but was baffled that there was no clearance price :(

    4. I did the same thing! Saw the "clearance" sign and got all excited, but was disappointed it rang up full price.

      I would not trust that CVS clerk - One told me my WnW 8-pan "petal pusher" was full price, I told her it wasn't, she insisted it was, and when it rang up for $1.50 she had to eat crow, lol.

  29. My CVS does not carry Wet N Wild and none of their other stuff was on clearance other than the Essence of Beauty lip butters. They were $.74 so I got a few of those. Hard to say if and when things will actually go on clearance I guess.

  30. I scanned and scanned today, didn't find any clearance, I hope we get a master list going soon, I'm so excited for the clearance lol

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks for the heads up! I just went and scanned a lot but Its hard to scan everything. Can't wait to see the master list so I can go back to cvs. Thank you again!
