The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales for 6/12 - 6/18

Since I did a little summertime makeover of this blog, I thought I'd introduce a new, more colorful Weekly Makeup Sales logo too! I hope the changes to the blog aren't too jarring for any of you--I just wanted to lighten things up a bit and make things a bit more colorful because, well, makeup products are all about color and fun, right?

I have just updated my weekly drugstore makeup sales post, which you can view here (definitely give it a scan since there are lots and lots of great deals this week that I'm NOT going to cover in this post). As always, the link to this post is always available for your reference at the top of this blog (right above the newest blog post).

My picks for the top three sales this week:

CVS: Maybelline Falsies mascara $5 and if you spend $15 on Maybelline you get $5 Extra Bucks

RITE AID: Jesse's Girl and Bonne Bell products BOGO1/2OFF and if you spend $10 you get $3 +UP Rewards

WALGREENS: Maybelline foundation, eyeshadow, lip and nail cosmetics 40% off

Of course there are OTHER Maybelline products also on sale this week at CVS to help get you to $15, but the Falsies deal is my favorite.

As for my Rite Aid pick, well you Rite Aid shoppers out there KNOW that Jesse's Girl sales don't come around too often, so this is a GREAT time to pick up some of their new polishes, Mineralized Baked eyeshadows or, one of my personal favorites, their eyeshadow primer. And throwing Bonne Bell into the mix makes it so easy to hit $10 to get the $3 +UP Rewards, doesn't it? This is such a fun sale!

As for the Maybelline sale at Wags, I'm sort of bummed that it's only foundation, eyeshadow, lip and nail products because that means I can't stock up on my beloved eyebrow pencil, but it's still a great sale and we don't see too many 40% off sales at the drugstore these days, huh?

Other items of note:
  • In the CVS circular this week, the sale for CoverGirl NatureLuxe Mascara and Intense Shadowblast (the one I just reviewed) contains a typo (I believe it's a typo--I asked CVS on Twitter to confirm but I have not heard back from them yet). In the ad, the text says that Smoky Shadowblast is on sale, though the image in the ad is of Intense Shadowblast. Again, I'm pretty sure that's a typo and that Intense Shadowblast is the product that's on sale, but if I hear differently I'll let you know.
  • Attn: Garnier skincare fans! CVS is running their "lowest price of the year" on ALL Garnier cleansers and Moisture Rescue skincare--they're $4.99 each this week!
  • FREEBIE ALERT FOR FATHER'S DAY! At Walgreens, the new Blistex RPM for Men Lip Balm is $2 with $2 Register Rewards. That could be a nice "stalking stuffer" for the dad in your life!
  • Speaking of Wags, I want to remind you Walgreens shoppers about the Summer Beauty Guide that's now available in-store. There are lots of beauty coupons in this guide which can be combined with manufacturer's coupons! Click here to see the full list of coupons in this guide and don't forget to grab one the next time you're at Wags.
  • And finally, something I did NOT mention in my drugstore beauty sales post because it has absolutely nothing to do with beauty: in Rite Aid's weekly ad for 6/12 - 6/18, there's a coupon for an iTunes gift card. You can get a $25 iTunes gift card for $20 if you use that coupon, so that's like getting five $0.99-songs for free. I just wanted to mention that since it would make a nice last-minute Father's Day gift, or heck, a nice treat for yourself even!
Thanks for reading, and if you know of any good unadvertised sales going on this week, or any good coupon match-ups, please share in the comments!


  1. I hope they have the Falsies Flared at my CVS. I really wanna try it. I also have a $1 off coupon for Maybelline. I will also definetly get some of the Moisture Rescue Gel-cream. I think i might have a coupon for that as well.

  2. Also, I think their is going to be a $2 off coupon for Dial body wash in tomorrows paper.

  3. The week after, the Garnier moisturizers should be $5, with $5 ECB wyb $15. So If you're itching to buy some, I would do it then (:

  4. thanks for this headsup! I was thinking about purchasing the Maybelline Shine lipstick in Pink Freeze that you did a review on about 1-2 weeks ago.... even though I'm not a lipstick person but I got interested c[=
