The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sale Wrap-Up (10/18 - 10/24)

Hot Coupon Alert! There are two new printable coupons for $3 off any 1 Real Techniques makeup brush and $2 off any 1 EcoTools brush HERE. You can use these coupons in-store at Ulta, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Target, grocery stores, etc. Also, I've heard from some of you who have spotted some Real Techniques brushes on clearance at Walgreens lately for around $3 each, so you may be able to score FREE BRUSHES with that coupon. If you do not see these coupons when you click that link, that means they've been taken down so do not wait if you want to print those. (Thanks to everyone to took the time to let me know about these coupons!) 

CVS: This week all MUA Makeup Academy products are BOGOFREE, plus there's a printable coupon for $3 off $15 HERE that you can combine with this sale! I've been hearing from several of you that there are new eyeshadow palettes in this line, and that the pigmentation is quite impressive. So definitely take a peek at those when you're at CVS this week. Also this week, scan your Extra Care card at the red scanner box to receive a coupon for $5 off any $20+ purchase of CVS store brand products (this includes Beauty 360 makeup brushes and accessories, CVS store brand versions of skincare and haircare, CVS polish removers, CVS cotton pads, etc.).

Rite Aid: This week is pretty amazing if you're a Rite Aid shopper, because we've got 40% off all Wet n Wild cosmetics, L'Oreal cosmetics, L'Oreal skincare, and Almay cosmetics. I have never seen Rite Aid offer so many 40% off beauty sales all at once! Also this week, if you spend $15 on any Physicians Formula cosmetics, you'll receive 1000 Plenti Points, which is the equivalent of $10 in store credit. The limit on this offer is 2, so you can spend $30 and get $20 store credit. Don't forget that Rite Aid offers exclusive printable store coupons for beauty products HERE, which can be combined with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, for additional savings. These coupons change frequently and you have to act quickly if you want them because they usually have a limited quantity, so try to check that link every time you visit this post. 

Walgreens: Now through 10/20 only, get 5x Balance Rewards points when you spend at least $10 in-store or on the Walgreens website. Just find the coupon on the front of this week's ad and have the cashier scan it to activate (they should have the ad right at the register). Also, this week get $1 off select Wet n Wild and Fergie cosmetics with a regular retail price of $1.99 and up (click here to view qualifying items). I also want to mention that this week all Simple skincare products are BOGOFREE (always a nice time to stock up your favorites; you can click HERE to view my Simple Micellar Water review, and HERE to view my Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes review). Don't forget that the Walgreens October Coupon Book is now available for free in-store. Here's a quick look at everything that is in this month's book, and don't forget that you can stack these coupons with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, for additional savings.

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


  1. I always have a problem printing out coupons from

  2. Thanks G. But imagine my frustration, I have been waiting weeks and weeks for 40% off L'Oreal for Palette 2. Last week I got tired of waiting and paid full price.

    1. Some stores will reimburse you the difference if an item you bought full price goes on sale in a certain time - usually 30 days

  3. I notice MUA is adding more eyeshadows and other products to CVS's offerings so this sale is good timing. I'll be in Rite Aid this week, without a doubt, hunting for L'Oreal and Wet n Wild! I picked up one of the Halloween mascaras from WnW during a recent sale and for $2 and change it's a pretty nice turquoise mascara.

  4. Thanks, as always, for the tips!

  5. Rite Aid here I come... 40% off WnW... Thanks
