So when you're out and about this week, keep these in mind:
Sally Beauty -- reader HeatherS said that Orly is changing their packaging so the old bottles are all BOGOFREE right now. I haven't been to Sally yet this week so I don't know if this is nationwide), but HeatherS said both Sally stores in her town were running this sale.
Target -- several readers have spotted cosmetics on clearance from brands like Milani, Pixi, Maybelline, Revlon, Sally Hansen, Sonia Kashuk, etc. Update: right after I published this post, my pal Jess of Polish Insomniac tweeted me this pic of a crazy hair color deal she spotted at Target. Thanks, Jess!
Rite Aid -- various older LE products on clearance, as well as products from older "new product" counter displays. Note: when Rite Aid and other drugstores take down "new product" displays, they often put those products on clearance, even though they're new, permanent additions to the core line of the brand. If the permanent wall display hasn't been reset yet for the new products, they sometimes put the products on clearance until there's room for them in the wall displays.
Ulta -- lots and lots of nail polish on clearance (up to 80% off) reported by multiple readers.
Kmart -- lots of makeup from a variety of brands has been spotted on clearance by several readers, including the Kardashian Khroma line, which has been spotted on 75% clearance by multiple readers.
Walmart: -- lots of beauty products spotted on clearance right now by multiple readers. Reader Amanda said she spotted the Palmer's BB Cream for $7.

I've been wanting to try this Coconut Curlada conditioner by the brand Curls ever since I saw the line debut at Rite Aid last year. I nearly fell over when I found this bottle on clearance! Online reviews say it doesn't have much slip, but that it's good for co-washing if you follow with a good leave-in. We'll see...
I've always wanted to try Prestige's eyeshadow primer (I think this was in a counter display for a while, and it's on clearance because there isn't a slot for it yet in the permanent wall display). Have any of you tried this one? Thoughts?
I can never resist the scented polishes from Revlon. They are my weakness. And for $1.20? It just had to come home with me.
Thanks for reading, and if you know of any other great clearance deals going on right now, please leave a comment below.
Another HUGE thanks to everyone who reported the clearance sightings mentioned in this post!
