The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (2/19 - 2/25)

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

CVS shoppers: According to the weekly ad, Nicole by OPI (including Kardashian Kolor) is now at CVS ($7.99 each). Also, if you've been wanting to try the Curel lotion I reviewed here, this week if you spend $15 on Curel (details below) you'll get $5 Extra Bucks AND there's a new Facebook coupon for $3 off any two Curel items. The CVS Cash Card promotion is still going on (spend $30 on participating items and you'll receive a Cash Card worth $10 to spend as you like at CVS). Participating beauty-related items are marked below. And remember that you do NOT have to purchase $30 worth of products all at once--they will accrue on your receipt.

Rite Aid shoppers: 
If you've been wanting to try Simple skincare, there's an offer this week that might be too good to pass up (see below). All L'Oreal cosmetics are BOGO1/2OFF this week and remember there are lots of Video Values coupons for L'Oreal right now, which you can stack with manufacturer's coupons if you have them. Almay foundations, powders and blushes are $8.99 this week and there's a Single Check Rebate for $2 back AND a $1 Video Values coupon for SmartShade foundation (using both of those would knock your total down to $5.99 for a SmartShade foundation). ALL Suave shampoos, conditioners or stylers are BOGOFREE this week (a good time to use coupons if you have any). Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion fans: you can get a 10-oz bottle for $0.97 after rewards; they're on sale for $2.97 with $2 +UP this week. And remember that, through March 17th, whenever you make a qualifying purchase (which I will clearly mark below), these purchases will add up on your receipts and when you hit $100, you'll get $20 back in +UP Rewards (they'll automatically print out on your receipt). 

Walgreens shoppers: I've added a new sub-category to the Walgreens listings: BONUS BUYS. These are week-long sales and SOME of them are not printed in the weekly circular (only viewable online). These are not online-only sales though--they are good in-store as well. But please note that I will not be listing ALL of the Bonus Buys for each week, only the notable beauty-related buys. Speaking of Bonus Buys, one of them is BOGOFREE Salon Grafix, so if your Walgreens has the new Conditioning Cleanser I showed you here, it would be a good time to get some if you're interested. Lastly, Curel is BOGO1/2OFF off this week, so if you wanted to try that lotion I reviewed, be sure to print out this $3 off 2 Curel products coupon from the Curel Facebook page before it's gone.

  1. Does the Simple skincare line even have a lip treatment? I didn't see one listed on the US manufacturer's website, but maybe I overlooked it. There are definitely lip products listed on the UK site.

  2. Time to stalk up on some of those lip butters ive been lusting over. I must be one of the few people on the planet that still hasn't bought any :(

  3. I have to say that this list is insanely useful. I usually stop by CVS or Rite Aid after work and can't tell you how many times I open it up on my cell as a reference. Who needs a circular when you have G's breakdown?!

  4. i went into my rite aid today and they were having 50%-75% off certain colors of certain nail polishes (i got rimmel lasting finish pro in purple rain for $0.99).

  5. I bought the Salon Grafix Conditioning Cleanser and I love it. I have used it for 3 days and my hair looks better every day. It takes a little bit of getting use to but I think it is a great porduct.

  6. Spent $20 on maybelline today, also using 2 coupons and I got $6 extrabucks!! :)
