The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sale Wrap-Up (11/8 - 11/14)

NOTE: Be sure to read my Ulta tip for Real Techniques and EcoTools below!

CVS: All you really need to know this week is that ALL Milani cosmetics are 40% off (the only exclusion is clearance items). There's no limit on this offer, so haul away! Oh, I also want to mention that all hair brushes, combs, rollers and select accessories are BOGOFREE this week (all brands) in case you want to stock up on anything or try something new.

Rite Aid: Not much going on this week, other than the usual BOGO1/2OFF sales, but I do want to mention that Maybelline lip and eye cosmetics are all 25% off this week (I saw the new lip palette at my Rite Aid the other day, so I know it's there). 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: 11/8 - 11/11 only: spend $30 or more in-store get 5000 points (ask cashier to scan coupon on front page of this week's ad to activate). That is the equivalent of $5 store credit, in case you're new to the Balance Rewards program and don't know how points convert. I also want to mention that Palmer's skincare is 25% off this week, and Pond's skincare is BOGOFREE (includes towelettes). The Walgreens November 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.

The following Ulta highlights are valid in-store and online now through 11/28 unless otherwise noted. View current Ulta ad HERE.

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 saw a post that Makeup Revolution would be BOGO 1/2 off as well - is that not valid until the 28th?
    Thank you!

    1. Thank you, Priyanka!! I totally missed that! I just added to my post. I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know! xo

  2. I tried to use the $3 off coupon from and they wouldn't accept it frustrating. I did pick up a new Tony Moly wine sheet mask, though!

    1. Did they say why they wouldn't accept?

    2. Well they definitely accept manufacturer coupons (these printables are legitimate manu coupons). Did they tell you why? Here's their official statement:

  3. That "get 5 for $5" has some great stocking stuffers and for all ages too. Thank u for the post.

    1. You're so welcome. Lots of goodies on that page! :)

  4. G, Ulta doesn't let people stack coupons. One coupon per transaction is what they told me.

    1. As far as I know, they DO if it's not two of their own coupons. I haven't heard about them changing their policy on this. Check out their response to this exact question on Facebook:

  5. They had J Cat products in my Ulta last week! I wish I took a photo of the display for you...

    1. Hum...both Jcat and Ulta have confirmed that these are online only. I'm wondering if the display at your store is the older one they launched in the summer, and they just haven't taken it down yet? Can you tell me if it looks like this:


  6. My Ulta is so weird when it comes to using coupons and any item on sale or clearance. I once tried to use a 2.00 off maybelline coupon on an item that was 2 and change and they told me I could not use it. Excuse me? I did end up using it, but that was after insisting they take it.

  7. One quick thing: Walgreens has 20% off Burt's Bees skincare (I think all month long).
