The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (1/22 - 1/28)

For a listing of the beauty sales happening this week at Ulta, Target and Kmart, click here.

There are lots of ways to save on some of the new L'Oreal cosmetics and haircare products this week at all three drugstores. The details of each sale are listed in my summaries below, but it's important to note that if your Sunday newspaper for tomorrow (1/22) contains the Red Plum insert, you should find the following coupons available to you:

(the following info was obtained from

$1 off L’Oreal EverCreme, EverSleek, EverPure, EverStrong treatment
$1 off L’Oreal  EverStyle product
$1 off L’Oreal eye product (not sure if this is in reference to skincare or cosmetics)
$1 off L’Oreal eyeliner or eye shadow 
$1 off L’Oreal Healthy Look Creme Gloss Color
$1 off L’Oreal False Fiber Lash kit
$3 off L’Oreal Youth Code (note: there is also a $5 off L'Oreal Youth Code coupon on the Rite Aid Video Values site that you can stack with this coupon and Youth Code is $5 off this week at Rite Aid, so there's potential here to save $13 off a Youth Code purchase. You can see my review of the starter kit here.)

All three drugstore are running BOGO1/2OFF sales on L'Oreal cosmetics this week (Rite Aid's sale is for eye cosmetics only). And if you've been wanting to try the new EverStyle or EverCreme products I posted about here, you'll be able to get them for around $5 each this week at Walgreens ($5.99 each) and CVS (2/$12) if you use those coupons.

CVS shoppers:  There's a sale for BOGO1/2OFF all Milani cosmetics this week, but the ad does not state that it excludes clearance products. I don't know if this is a misprint or not, given the big Milani clearance sale, so check with your store for more details (some items may come up BOGO1/2OFF while others may come up 75% off, but I highly doubt you'll be able to get BOGO1/2OFF on the clearance items). The Garnier BB Cream is on sale this week for $10 and if you spend $15 on any Garnier skincare or haircare you get $5 Extra Bucks (excludes clearance). And don't forget about the CVS Cash Card promotion. Spend $30 on participating items and you'll receive a Cash Card worth $10 to spend as you like at CVS. I will clearly mark the participating beauty-related items (below). And remember that you do NOT have to purchase $30 worth of products all at once--they will accrue on your receipts.

Rite Aid shoppers: Simple skincare (from the UK) has landed and it's on sale this week (details below). Don't forget about the Video Values coupons for Revlon, L'Oreal, Almay etc. if you haven't already used them this month (you can stack those with manufacturer's coupons if you have some). And don't forget about the Resolution Rewards: through Jan 28, spend $100 on qualifying products and you'll receive $20 in +UP Rewards. You do NOT have to spend $100 all at once--your qualifying purchases will accrue throughout the month. I will clearly mark the eligible products below. AND, just a little aside here: I'm addicted to those Purex Fabric Softener Crystals and they're BOGOFREE this week, in case you're addicted too.

Walgreens shoppers: Another slow week at Wags, folks. All Blistex lip care is BOGOFREE and so are Pond's towelettes. And if you want any of those new L'Oreal EverCreme or EverStyle products, they're on sale this week for $5.99 each (and don't forget about the L'Oreal coupons I mentioned above in most Sunday papers tomorrow).

  1. According to the CVS flyer posted on, the Lumene sale is BOGO 75%. It would be awesome if it was 75% off everything though!

  2. beautybabbler: AW NUTS! That's what I get for being distracted while writing this post. I even triple-checked the ad but apparently I was blind to the "BOGO" part. Thank you SO much for catching that! Fixing now...

  3. And I'd just like to add another special thanks to beautybabbler and everyone else who has ever caught an error on my Weekly Drugstore Makeup posts. I don't know what I'd do without you all helping to keep things straight every week. It's a lot of info to process and I am so forever in your debt! *hugs*

  4. i just wanted to pop on and say thank you for these weekly posts!!! i know it takes alot of time and energy!!! you rock, my love!!! xoxo

  5. hi, i havent seen anyone post about this, but at my local walgreens, i saw a buy 2 get $2 off essie nail polish.

  6. My RA would not honor the BOGO on the Purex Crystals.

  7. annie: Awww, thank you SO much for that, honey! *hugs*

    Anon: that a month-long deal? I know those are unadvertised so maybe that's why I haven't heard about it (I haven't been into Walgreens this month yet). Thanks for the heads-up! I will definitely have to investigate! :)

    MJ:'s in the national ad here:

    My advice would be to check your LOCAL ad (available in-store) and if you see it listed there as BOGOFREE, ask a cashier why they wouldn't honor it. Hope that helps!

  8. Word to the wise too, after you pay, check your receipts!

    I went to RiteAid for the BOGO 1/2 Off of Revlon and picked up Whimsical and Popular. Instead they had taken only .50 cents off each polish, so I had to go back and have them refund me the difference. I have to say, the manager and cashier were very helpful though and in the end, I got my BOGO 1/2 Off.

    Thanks again for featuring these great deals!

  9. Im new at coupons shopping, one day i will be awsome at it with your help. ThankYou

  10. G, I hardly ever comment here on your blog (although I read it religiously everyday), but I had to thank you! Using the BOGO Maybelline at RiteAid, I bought 2 of the 24hour Color Tattoo for $10.63 AND got $3 UP+ coupon! I turned right back around and bought a Revlon Lip Butter, using the $3 off AND a $2 coupon I printed from the RiteAid video earlier this month. Total of mere $2.94! I've been eyeing these products for a while and finally bought them at a great price. Thanks so much for all your work in posting these deals!
