The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (3/27 - 4/2)

Apologies for getting this up late; I've been enjoying the Easter holiday with my family, so that's also why I didn't do an Easter Beauty Sale Wrap-Up this weekend. Again, apologies, and thank you so much to everyone who took the time to share deals on the You Tell Me page this week--I am so grateful for your willingness to share your tips with us!

There are lots of great deals this week--see all details below. And don't forget that starting Monday, all Easter candy will be 50% off at the all of the drugstores and big box stores! The discount should increase to 75% off and then 90% off after a week or so. 

Below are some highlights unrelated to the 21 Days of Beauty event (you can use the $3.50 off $10 coupon HERE with any of these deals). All deals valid now through 4/2:

The Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Spring 2016 Event is now live, both in-store and online. This event started on 3/13 and runs through 4/2. Full calendar of events HERE

Shipping info: Currently, Ulta Platinum members will receive free shipping with purchase of any Beauty Steal (listed below). There will also be special Platinum Perk Beauty Steals available to Platinum members throughout this event, so keep an eye on your in-box for those, as Ulta will announce them via email. Shipping for non-Platinum members is currently free at the standard $50+ purchase. However, Ulta has historically lowered that threshold to $25 for one week of this event. I will post here on the blog if/when that happens at any time during this event.

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've been doing the PF deal each week at CVS, but the selection is soooo tired at my store. Same old, same old. I have 4.00 peelie coupons so I'm just buying for other people.

  2. Oooh, time to stock up on some Milani. Their matte lipsticks are so fabulous.

  3. I got Physician's Formula pressed powder at CVS. $14.79 - $3 CVS coupon from kiosk = $11.79 and $8 ECB. I'm happy with that deal! I used $7 ECB that I had from a previous PF deal, so I paid $4.79 + tax and got my $8 ECB. Good stuff :)

  4. I got 5 of the Milani Lip Treatments and 1 Matte Lipstick for $2.99/each, used my $5 off coupon for linking my CVS card to the app, another $3 off any $15 Milani purchase, and my total come to just under $11. I was SO excited! Going back tomorrow for more!

  5. I got some good deals this week...a physicians formula bronzer for 8 bucks and three Milani matte lipsticks and a Chapstick for 4 bucks! All at cvs...make sure to clip those coupons to your card!
