CVS shoppers: This week all NYC cosmetics are 40% off. We've also got 25% off MUA/Makeup Academy. Thanks to several of you for the tip that you've spotted MUA coupon booklets in-store lately, which would be nice to use during this sale (if you can't find the booklet in the beauty department, ask a store employee if your store has the coupon booklet available). We've also got 20% off Halloween makeup and according to the ad, this includes Fantasy Makers by Wet n Wild. Also, Milani is BOGO1/2OFF again this week (excludes Brilliant Shine lip gloss).

Rite Aid shoppers: We've got 40% off all NYC cosmetics, 40% off all Revlon cosmetics and 40% off all Physicians Formula face cosmetics this week! AND select Halloween cosmetics are 50% off this week, and this includes Fantasy Makers by Wet n Wild and the Bonita Colors Halloween 2014 Witches Ball polishes and Nail-o-ween Set (more details below). We've also got some returning sales on JulieG, Jesse's Girl, Lipsmackers and L.A. Girl Color Pop nail polish (details below). Just a reminder that the Video Values coupons for October are still up--click the little red box in the upper right corner that says "show all offers" to view all of the coupons for this month (remember that these are store coupons, which means you can stack them with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, for even more savings). 

Walgreens shoppers: Not much going on makeup-wise this week, but Sinful Colors nail polishes are $0.99 each AGAIN! I can't remember Walgreens ever running this sale so closely to the previous one before (we just had a $0.99 sale the week of 9/14), but who's complaining, right? And don't forget that there are some new clearance markdowns going on in the beauty aisle (click HERE for pics and info). And just a remind that the Walgreens October Coupon Book is still available (free in-store) and there's a $1 off Maybelline Matte Lipstick coupon this month (this coupon is also valid on Maybelline eye cosmetics and makeup removers). Click HERE for a full listing of this month's coupons (don't forget that you can stack those coupons with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, for even more savings). 


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. Last week I was such a good girl and didn't step into one drug store, even tho Wet N Wild was a great sale (I think 50%)... but this week I'm going into all my usual haunts... CVS, RA &I Wags. Here come... NYC & Sinful Colors. Don't forget about Sally Hansen, but $10, get $5

    Trust me, I know I should stay home, but I just can't. I won't do too much damage since I already have so much polish. Are there Wet N Wild wild shine Halloween polishes out now? You know I need my fix!

  2. RITE AID also has:
    BOGO 1/2 OFF L'Oreal Face & Eye cosmetics
    20% OFF L'Oreal skin care (listed above)
    Spend $20 L'Oreal skin care, cosmetics, hair care or hair color, Get $5+UP Rewards (limit 4)
    BOGO 1/2 OFF All CeraVe skin & sun care
    (Page 3 of Rite Aid's regional Northeast weekly ad, but may be applicable elsewhere s well)
    Thanks so much for all your hard work and dedication, G! Your website is the best!
    Happy shopping!

  3. First off, I want to thank you for all your great posts - every Monday before leaving the house I check in with your weekly sales post & I love the "spotted" posts, too! Yesterday, I stopped in at Rite Aid to pick up some Fantasy Makers half off, but my local ad says the 50% off Halloween items excludes Fantasy Makers, Nail-o-ween, Witches Ball Cosmetics & more. :( So if you're looking to pick up some Halloween make-up, I would check your local ad first (I am in northeastern Ohio). Hope this helps!

  4. I couldn't get the Bonita nailcolors 50% off at Rite Aid in Baltimore County, MD. :-(
