Target bargains!

It's been a while since I did a Target update, but lately there have been so many great deals popping up at Target that I decided to compile them all into one post.

Several of you have been kind enough to share your findings with me lately in regard to Target clearance items. It's always difficult for me to post about clearance items at Target because not all Target stores put the same beauty items on clearance at the same time.

BUT, many of you are finding several of the same items that were on clearance at CVS on clearance at your local Target stores. I've been checking my local Target regularly and I didn't find anything on clearance until the other day when I finally found A TON of the makeup items clearance (basically everything that was on clearance at CVS). Just look for those Target red clearance stickers!

The best deals I spotted were these Sonia Kashuk brushes:

 Sonia Kashuk Retractable Foundation Brush
retail: was $14.99, now $5.98

Sonia Kashuk Large Eye Shadow Brush
retail: was $12.99, now $6.48

Next up, I want to remind you about the Target Mobile Coupon program. I first mentioned Target mobile coupons on this blog almost exactly a year ago (click here to sign up). Now that I've been registered and receiving these coupons on my mobile phone for a year, I can tell you that I really like the program. Some months are better than others, but for the most part there's at least one really good coupon that I find myself using per month. Since it's absolutely free to join, I'd say it's worth the effort!

The main reason I'm bringing this up is because this month's coupons include a good deal on Revlon:

Two dollars off a Revlon CustomEyes mascara, which is double the amount of the CustomEyes mascara coupon that can be found on the Target website! If you have a manufacturer's coupon you can stack with this $2 coupon, you're looking at a very nice savings.

Do you know of any other great Target deals going on right now? Have you purchased any makeup products on clearance at your local Target lately? I'd love to hear from you!


  1. I saw a few of the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Gel Liners on clearance there for less than $5. Only two of them--Hazel which has the taupe, fuchsia, and black with pink shimmer and the blue one with the blue, brown, and black with blue shimmer. I didn't buy any (I already have the hazel and green eyes ones--love them!), but it's a great deal!

    I saw them on clearance at two separate Targets :) I didn't remember seeing these on clearance at CVS.

  2. I picked up a TON of stuff on clearance at my local Target.

    NYC lipsticks - 48 cents.
    OPI nail polish - $1.99
    Various brushes - ranging from 99 cents to $2.48 (some costing over $10)
    Facial cleansing sponge - 28 cents

    LOVE clearance prices.

  3. Actually I work right across from Target have to go there. Will check Out bargains if any

  5. Heading out to Target now, and I am SO glad I checked your blog before I left. hehe

    Somehow every time there's a good sale somewhere and I happen to be running an errand to that store, you have the right post to guide me just before I leave =)

    Thank youuuuu *all hail NC* ^_^


    edit: the last deleted comment was me...accidentally commented with my bf's account lol didn't know he was still logged into gmail on my comp ><

  6. Love going to Target and checking the clearance section. Always find something I want there.

  7. I don't buy very many cosmetics at Target because they don't allow returns.

  8. I got a bottle of Seche Vite for just under $5!

  9. I just went to Target and I looked ALL over the cosmetics department. I really didn't see any good deals :(. I think I've been spoiled by the CVS clearance. Great find on the PF Gel Liners. I wish I saw that deal at my Target. I would've swooped them up! I only saw the shimmer strips Pop shadows for around $6-7, but seeing as how I got them at CVS for $3, it wasn't too appealing.

  10. I picked up a few L'Oreal HiP powdered kohl eyeliners at Target a few days ago. I don't remember the exact price, but they were less than $5 each <.<

  11. I went to my local Target on Sunday w/my fiance so I really couldn't 'dig deep' in the cosmetics section. But I did see a few clearance items, not these brushes though. None of the SK were on clearance. I saw some dark foundations on clearance and like one PF gel liners. There were some good stuff down the 'more expensive' skincare aisle, like yes to cucumbers and ONE had a body butter for $5.

  12. The other night, I bought Revlon's Pink Me Up (one of the mattes) for about $2.50. Nothing else really jumped out at me.

  13. I too am frustrated with Target clearance sales because of the inconsistency with clearance items and prices. I bought a physician's formula gel liner at one store than saw it at another one for 2.50 less!

    I also saw some colorburst lipsticks, Physician's formula powders and liners for hazel eyes, some SK brushes, some Neutrogena products but nothing really spectacular.

    I'm annoyed that my Bamboo silk refill doesn't fit into regular sized compacts. They are so much smaller! I wanted to place it into a vintage compact I found. Bummer!


  14. guess where i will be heading on my lunch hour!! :)i hope i can find the PF gel liners!! i have been coveting them but not so much that i would pay full price! gosh i love this blog!! :)

  15. Thanks for the head's up, G!

    OT, and sorry for the very late notice, but HauteLook has a great sale going on this instant on Rock & Republic cosmetics. The prices are even lower than the last sale. I just snagged a lip gloss and eyeshadow that would have run around $50 for $16.

  16. At my Target I found the Sonia K dripping in diamonds brush set for 10.48, PF gel liner for hazel eyes under $5, maybelline Colossal volume mascara waterproof in brown and jeggins and jeans for 4.98! I lost my mind in there!

  17. At my Target the Sonia Kashuk brushes sadly were not on sale but I picked up my first colorburst lipstick in the color Sienna, it is beautiful! for about $2.50 but I also had a $1 off coupon that they let me use. Super duper great bargain!
