Day after Easter reminder: First of all, I hope you all had a great Easter Sunday (if you celebrate; if you don't, I hope you had a wonderful day!). Just a reminder that if you love Easter candy, Monday is the day to get your fix for 50% off at the drugstores. Eventually things will be reduced to 75% off but, for the best selection, stop by your local drugstores on Monday, 4/6. 

CVS shoppers: This week all Wet n Wild cosmetics are B2G1FREE. Also, be sure to scan your Extra Care card at the red scanner box this week, because CVS is issuing another $5 off any $15+ cosmetics purchase coupon! You can of course use with this WnW sale, or any of the makeup sales listed below. The CVS Beauty Clearance Sale is STILL lingering on (the master list is HERE, but there have also been recent reports about 50% and 75% markdowns in the skincare and haircare aisle, so be sure to walk through those aisles and look for clearance tags).

Rite Aid shoppers:  This week all Wet n Wild cosmetics are 40% off. Also, now through 5/2, all Freeman skincare is 25% off. My Rite Aid has the new masks (such as the new Honeydew & Chamomile Sleeping Mask, Sweet Tea & Lemon Peel-Away Clay Mask, etc.) so if you've been wanting those, hopefully your store has them too. Also, there's a new promotion this month where you can get a $10 gas card with any participating $30 purchase (details and links below). The Video Values coupons for April are now available here--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: Now through 4/25, Lypsyl lip balms (which you know I love!) are on sale again for $0.99 each (regularly $3.49). Thanks to reader @lippiesandlotion on Intagram for this tip, and for sharing this picThe April Coupon Book is now available (free in stores). You can click HERE for a list of the coupons in this month's book. Don't forget that you can use those coupons on clearance items and also 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. I just bought all of the limited edition 6 pan eyeshadows s from Wet n Wild last week at Rite Aid too ;_;

    1. I'm not 100% sure, but I think Rite Aid might do price adjustments if you purchased the palettes within the last 7 days. It might be worth a shot to ask? I might be getting that policy confused with another store, but at the very least you could call and see if they'll do it. :)

    2. I work at Rite Aid and if you say you want to return and buy it for the sale price they should do it no problem :) We always do so.

  2. I stopped in Rite Aid yesterday, they had all of the Almay shadow trios on clearance 75% off (they were $1.99 after the discount). They haven't gotten much attention, but I think they are lovely, own all of them. Nice wearable colors in a easy to use formula. Have to wonder if they are discontinuing/revamping them since they were all on clearance?

  3. My CVS has ALL Milani Cosmetics on Buy 1 Get 1 50% off :)

  4. I may have to stack the L'oreal and cosmetics extra bucks deals at CVS to get La Palette 2 because my Rite Aid didn't have them in stock. I love the L'oreal Colour Riche Balm so this could be a good excuse to get another one of those with summer approaching and sheets coming in!

  5. Oooh thanks for the heads up about the Lypsyl sale at Walgreens! I really want to try other flavors.

  6. The new WnW special at Walgreens is 3 for $2 (products that are $0.99 regular price) for 3/29-4/25. If you'd like pics of the display, let me know.

  7. I scored BIG last night! My CVS has all Milani B1G1 1/2 off so I bought 2 of the flower blushes at $8.49. I had a $3. coupon they sent me for my birthday and a $7. cash bash coupon for something I purchased a few weeks ago. I ended up with both blushes for $3.41!!!!! SO awesome.
