The CVS Beauty Clearance Sale has begun!

Just a quick note to let you know that the reader sightings have started coming in and the semi-annual CVS Beauty Clearance Sale has officially begun! It's a few weeks ahead of schedule since last year's Summer Beauty Clearance started around May 17th!

If you have no idea what the CVS Beauty Clearance Sale is about, CLICK HERE to view last winter's sale post, and HERE to view last summer's sale post. I've been covering these sales for years now and the one thing I can tell you is that this is the best time of year to stock up on drugstore beauty, with many, many products on sale for 50% off and 75% off. So get your coupons and Extra Bucks in order because the next round of haul-madness is about to start! And PLEASE don't forget to tag your haul pics on social media with #cvsbeautyclearance so we can all see what you've purchased!

I'll be back tomorrow with my usual "master list" of everything that's been spotted so far. So please check back then for more details!

PS: I'm working on a huge post about the new mega-display of Sinful Colors polishes that is now popping up at Walgreens for Summer 2014, so please check back very soon for that (will be up tonight!).


  1. Oh yeah!!!!!! Maybe I will get lucky this time around!!!

  2. Long time reader, first time commenter! I work for CVS and one of my main jobs is doing all of the beauty tasks. I can only speak for my store and instructions given here but as of now select Revlon only is on sale and next weekend (the 17th) starts the other brands. I've looked at my list and I only see 50%, I don't see anything going down to 75%! Like I said I can only speak for my store/area (New England) so I'm not sure what other stores' instructions were but I figured I would give you a heads up! :)

    1. True, I went hunting for sale, but only 10 colors of Revlon nail polish were on clearance 50 % off and maybe 6 colors of lip stains, sales associate confirmed that so far only those revlon items are on clearance.

    2. Joy, thank you SO much for that helpful info! I'l be sure to mention in my post that the sale (for brands besides Revlon) should start on the 17th. Thanks again for letting us know!

      And thanks, Jane, for confirming as well!

  3. YAY! Thanks for the tip! I'm going today!

  4. Good bye, money. It was nice knowing ya. :)

  5. As it happens, I do need to make a run to CVS. Better carve out an hour just in case ...

  6. Thanks for the heads up. I have managed to score some things over the last couple clearance sales. Usually by using your list, my stores seem to be lazy about the stickers. By the time they get around to it, I have already purchased the good stuff! Thanks for such a great blog.
