SALES FOR WEEK OF 8/24 - 8/30

The following sale info has been obtained from national circulars. I do my best to recap sales that are happening in ALL regions of the United States, but certain sales vary from region to region. Also, you may live in an area that does not run national sales. If you do not see these sales in your area, check with your local store manager for more details.

Did I miss any hot beauty deals this week? If so, please leave a comment below and fill us in (and thanks in advance!)


  1. I picked up a limited edition WnW 5-pan eyeshadow palette earlier on today for $2 (:

    1. Whoo hoo! Thank you so much!! :)

  2. Yupyup, $1.99 for a limited edition WnW palette :)

  3. I purchased the limited edition wnw fall 5 pan pallet s for 2$ at walgreens. They're beautiful!

  4. Just stopped by my local CVS in Orange County, CA and all Nicole by OPI polishes (besides the summer collection that was on its own stand) were on sale for 5.99! The summer collection might also be on sale but its stand lacked a sale tag so I'm not sure if they just forgot to put it on or if it really doesn't apply...

  5. Just picked up all the Fall 5-pans for $2 each, Thanks!. Also, there was a WNW sign that said all items for $0.99 (pencils, Wild Shine polish, Glitter Singles, etc) will be $0.69 from 8/31-9/27.

  6. I got one of the LE wet n wild balm stains, and it rang up as $2 with my Walgreens card.... As did the Coverall foundation! =O That is an *amazing* deal, as it's already one of the best deals at the drugstore when it's full price at $4.29. Def pick up a backup if you like that foundation.

  7. I got the wnw melrose at night and smokey melrose for 2 bucks each! I was so happy! I also got the new wnw shine limited edition polishes! Love the Ferris wheel romance! Thank you so much G for your blog!
