CVS shoppers: Some of you have told me that you've recently spotted the Milani limited edition Amore Matte Lip Cremes at CVS (thanks so much for those tips--I was told previously that these were exclusive to Walgreens, which is apparently not the case since I've also heard from readers who have spotted these at regional retailers like Fred Meyer in the Pacific Northwest). And there's a Milani sale to go with these this week, if you find them (details below). Also, 30% off all Rimmel cosmetics this week, and there are also some nice deals on e.l.f. and Physicians Formula this week (see below). Also, scan your Extra Care card this week to get a coupon for $10 off ANY skincare purchase of $40+. You can stack this coupon with any of this week's skincare sales (I highlighted a few below) for even more savings.

Rite Aid shoppers: 40% off all Revlon cosmetics (excludes beauty tools) this week, but that's about it for the exceptional deals this week. Don't forget to check THIS LINK to some in-store and online beauty coupons that change weekly; try to check that link every time you view this post for new offers (some of these go quickly).

Walgreens shoppers: Thanks to several of you for letting me know that Nonie Creme Colour Prevails cosmetics are 20% off this month (in-store and online). If you're new to this brand, you can check out my reviews HEREThe August Coupon Book (free in stores) is now available. 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 them with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, for even more savings.

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. thank you so much for keep us updated on the great deals ;) Love your blog :)

  2. The Nonie Creme shadow palettes are worth a look while they are on sale. I really like the nude one and I bought the smoky as well and enjoy it too. There is a beautiful pinky taupe shimmer in there, the purple is nice (soft dusty purple and mostly matte), and I've worn the navy as well, it's mostly matte too and blends well which is kind of rare for matte navy's IME. I wish the packaging was better (pretty but terribly inconvenient and a space waster) and the shadows are a lot prettier than they look on the packaging or the display.

  3. Yay! Relvon for 40% plus coupons ! :)

  4. I was waiting for the return of the Revlon sale at Rite Aid. I finally picked up the matte lip crayon in Shameless and love it. With my receipt they gave me a few good Revlon coupons, too, including $1 off another lip crayon.
