The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (4/15 - 4/21)

There are many BOGO1/2OFF + rewards sales this week that you can take advantage of to buy products from the various limited edition collections I've been showing you throughout the week. One word of caution: Walgreens sometimes has restrictions on BOGO1/2OFF sales and limited edition merchandise, so check with a cashier before you make a purchase to see if the sales are applicable. CVS and Rite Aid generally apply the BOGO1/2OFF discount to limited edition products, so you shouldn't have any problem at those retailers.

CVS shoppers: Both Milani AND Revlon are BOGO1/2OFF this week, in case you're looking to stock up. And Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes are on sale for the lowest price I've ever seen them (aside from clearance sales) at just $4.99 each.

Rite Aid shoppers: There's a fantastic deal on nail polish this week: all Sally Hansen, Sinful Colors, CQ, Petites, Color Fever and Chameleon polishes are BOGO1/2OFF and when you buy 2, you get $2 back in +UP. So let's break that down: buy 2 Sinful Colors polishes ($1.99 each). After the BOGO1/2OFF deduction, you're down to $2.98. After the $2+UP, you're down to just $0.98 for TWO polishes. And the best part? The limit is 4, so you can do this four times. (NOTE: for new readers, the +UP Reward is good toward your next purchase, so when I present a scenario to you, I'm calculating your FINAL savings after you have used your +UP on a future purchase).

Walgreens shoppers: I'm so happy to see a longer list of beauty sales this week at Walgreens (the past few weeks have been sort of barren). Don't forget that through April 28th all regularly-priced $0.99 items from Wet n Wild are on sale for $0.69. (Click here for more details.) Also, for all you candle lovers out there: Patriot candles are BOGOFREE this week.

  1. Thank you! so excited to see Milani on sale - been waiting a bit!

  2. I wait for your weekly post before buying anything, I truly appreciate your posts but my husband appreciate them more !!!! ^_^

    1. Aaaaaw, that is so sweet of you to say! Thanks so much, and thanks to your husband too! Lol! ;)

  3. I'm planning on stocking up on my Revlon Photoshop primer this week. It's $12.99 regularly and this week Revlon is Buy 1, Get 1 50% off. I've got (2) $2 off Revlon Photoshop makeup coupons that I am going to stack with a $5 off 2 Revlon products CVS store coupon that the Magic Coupon machine printed out for me last week. Should be $10.48 for both, making each primer $5.24. I'm super psyched! :)

  4. Look for $1 off tear pad coupons for Sally nail polish.

  5. Look for $1 off tear pad coupons for Sally nail polish.

  6. I wandered into a CVS here in San Diego today and their lip products are 2 for $3.00 (Megashields, megalast, lip lacquer, and big lip balms) AND their eyeshadow trios are also 2 for $3.00. Holy smokes. I think the tags said the sale was just for this week. But wowie! That's a good sale.

    1. Yup!! I saw this sale at mine too! ALL lip and eye products are $3/2 --- including the 8pans!!! :O

  7. I'm in NYC and they don't have the Milani on sale, just the Revlon. Is that possible?
