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. Want to get Sinful Polishes from the new collections, but only have the chalk collection

  2. Typically, all the Sinful Colors displays have disappeared from the Walgreen's around me. Just a small counter display of core line is out. Happens ever.singe.time.

  3. However I am going to be hitting up Rite Aid for some Physicians Formula!

  4. You know, I've been eyeballing my local CVS stores and there is barely anything marked for clearance. Either they didn't do much around these parts (metro Detroit) or they got picked clean in a hurry.
    I did finally spot my first e.l.f. display in a CVS, too. It was thrilling to see a new, clean display.

  5. There is also a scan your CVS card and get $3 off a $15 cosmetics purchase (down from the usual $5) I too have yet to see discounted stuff at CVS,

  6. I've only seen a couple of Revlon polishes on clearance AND they replaced the whole Milani display with elf. So sad!
