The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (2/21 - 2/27)

NOTE: There are THREE printable Wet n Wild coupons currently on the Smartsource website HERE. Grab those before they're gone, to use with the various WnW sales at the drugstores this week (details below) or the Target beauty deal this week (many thanks to reader Randi for that hot tip!).

CVS: Lots of great deals this week, including: 40% off all Rimmel cosmetics, B2G1FREE all Wet n Wild, and spend $12 on PF get $8 Extra Bucks (limit 1). Also, this week's ad states that "all false lashes or eyebrow pencils" are BOGOFREE. There are no brand exclusions listed in this ad, but I would love to hear from any of you who try to buy brow pencils from different brands this week, such as L'Oreal, Maybelline, e.l.f., etc. (did you get the BOGOFREE?). Thanks!

Rite Aid: 40% off all Wet n Wild cosmetics this week! Also, I want to mention that this week all Rite Aid brand skincare and sun care products are BOGOFREE. This sale is sort of rare, so I wanted to mention it because it includes all of the various name-brand skincare dupes that Rite Aid offers.

Walgreens: Sinful Colors nail polishes are once again 2/$3 this week (it's been a long time since they've run this sale). Also, all WnW nail polishes are 25% off this week. This is your last chance to grab the February Coupon Book (free and available in-store). Here's a look at all the coupons this month. Remember that you can stack these coupons with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, for even more savings.

The following Ulta highlights are valid in-store and online now through 3/12 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. Oh, I have a Rimmel coupon and have been waiting for a sale so I can get another tube of the radiance BB cream. Yes!

    1. Oh sweet! Perfect time to use it!! :D

  2. I encourage everyone to sign up for the daily email from I scan that email at the end of the day and he shares all the best, latest coupons available for printing.

    1. Thanks, Randi! If I didn't already subscribe to two other "new printable coupon alert" emails, I so would do it! The problem with me is that I forget to check those emails every day, since most of those coupons seem to always be for processed foods that I'm trying to avoid. Lol! So I miss the good beauty coupons half the time. So again, I'm so grateful for that tip! xo

    2. Freebieshark is NOT only coupons. He tells you about contests, all the free items you can get, and various other "deals" from amazon, etc.

  3. The BOGO free eyelashes and brow pencil is for Ardell only. I looked online, and only saw the BOGO FREE for that brand :[.

    1. Aaw man. I knew that was probably too good to be true! Thank you so much for confirming. Will update my post. xo

  4. If only ULTA didn't keep adding nail polish in their GWP sets. Just for that tiny bottle I miss out on the whole deal because then it can't be shipped by air.

    1. So sorry! I didn't even think of that (for people who live where the only option is air). Maybe you could email customer service and ask if they could remove that one item for you?
