The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (11/4 - 11/10)

This week's printable beauty coupons, drugstore sales, news & tidbits...

If you're going to use any of these coupons this week at your local drugstores, remember that you can combine them with rewards deals for even better savings (coupons are deducted AFTER you have met the rewards threshold, not before). And as of September 1st, Dollar Tree now accepts manufacturer's coupons, which can mean FREE (or close to it) products.
Click here to access the following coupons:
  • $2 off any Monistat product when you buy any 1 Monistat product (I know a lot of you use Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel as primer so I thought I'd mention this one)
Click here to access the following printable coupons:
  • $1 off any L'Oreal eye cosmetic
  • $1 off any Rimmel face, lip or nail product

  • $1 off Almay intense i-color cosmetic item
  • $1 off Almay eye makeup remover
  • $2 off Sonia Kashuk cosmetic item
  • $1 off Up & Up facial skincare item


CVS shoppers: Lots going on this week! First, click here for all the details about the Spoiled by Wet n Wild Nail Pail, which is an awesome deal. Next, if your CVS has the new Carmex items I showed you here, there's a great Carmex deal this week that you can combine with the coupon at the top of this post for even more savings (details below). Also, be sure to scan your Extra Care card this week for a coupon for $2 off any CoverGirl Lip Perfection item (they're on sale this week for $7.59, so that brings it down to $5.59 or even lower if you have a manufacturer's coupon you can stack with it). Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polishes are 2/$4 this week, which is always a fun sale (hopefully that means they're making room for new shades). And I don't want to forget to mention that all Sebamed products are BOGOFREE this week. I'm pretty certain that the Sebamed Moisturizing Body Lotion I reviewed here is going to make my Cheapie Awards this year (I love it more than just about any other body lotion I've tried this year). Along with the BOGOFREE, you can use the coupon I linked to at the top of this post for $3 off when you buy 2 Sebamed products (that's a great deal since these products are pricey when not on sale). If you like moisturizing lotions that don't feel heavy, sticky or waxy on the skin, I think you might like this one (plus, it's cruelty-free, paraben-free and it smells like vintage bar soap!).

Rite Aid shoppers: Not beauty-related but I know that some of you love it whenever Purex Crystals are BOGOFREE (myself included) so I thought I'd let you know that they're BOGOFREE again this week.  Back to beauty: the November Video Values coupons are now up, and there are some good Revlon coupons available in addition to a $1 off Jesse's Girl Julie G. Nail Polish coupon. I believe you'll be able to use that coupon toward the Jesse's Girl sale that's back again this week (spend $15 on any Jesse's Girl or Bonne Bell products get $7+UP). And remember that you can stack Video Values coupons with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, unless otherwise specified. By the way, if you've been wanting to try the new Pantene Expert Age Defy or Advance Keratin haircare products, this is a good week for a haul (when you spend $30 on any of these Pantene products you'll get $10 back in +UP). 

Walgreens shoppers: (UPDATE: the Holiday 2012 Coupon Book is now available in stores. Click here to find out what's inside.) First up, the November Coupon Booklet is now available in stores (click here to see what's in this month's booklet). Next, the sales this week are the same as last week, but there are a few NEW sales, which I've added to the top of the listings below. New this week: regularly-priced Wet n Wild $0.99 items are on sale for $0.69 each (so basically that's the entire Wet n Wild Beauty Ambassador display featuring yours truly!). A reminder: if you missed my post about all of the Last Chance clearance items that are currently available at Walgreens, click here to see them before you head out to Walgreens this week (if you don't see clearance tags on these items, take a few products to the register and ask them to scan them; they might be on clearance in the system!). And remember that BOGO1/2OFF sales usually apply to clearance merchandise at Walgreens, so you can really score big time this week since CoverGirl, Maybelline, Revlon, L'Oreal AND Almay products are BOGO1/2OFF (don't forget to ask your Beauty Advisor if they have any coupons behind the counter for even more savings). And just a reminder that if you're looking for the limited edition Wet n Wild 8-pans, nail polishes or glosses, look for the Best in Show display at your local Walgreens (and check the interactive sightings map). And if you see the Wet n Wild Beauty Ambassador display this week, please leave a comment/tweet me a pic/share with me on Facebook. I'd love to know if you spot it!

  1. Spotted your Beauty Ambassadors display in New Hampshire and Massachusetts last week! :)

  2. There is a Walgreens Magazine that came in this Sunday's paper with sales that Started October 28th and go until December 29th. There are not a lot of makeup sales, BUT there are some really good ones and just good sales as a whole. There is also something about Being the first Walgreens Customer to visit your Beauty Advisor on 11/4/12 and receieve a GOLDEN TICKET to experience new beauty breakthroughs from L'Oreals. at is a it says out that. Has to do with hair care though!

  3. Spotted the display at Walgreen's in Westchester Square in the Bronx, NY last weekend.

  4. I got a $5.00 coupon for Physician's Formula from Rite-Aid this morning

  5. I clicked on the link for the $1 off any L'Oreal eye cosmetic and went through all five pages of coupons, but I couldn't find it.

  6. Just found your blog and this is really helpful

  7. I wanted to mention.. I had some high value Covergirl coupons from Walgreens that printed out at the register (catalinas). I was in Walmart doing some shopping and decided to ask the cashier if she would accept them since I had no plans to return to Walgreens anytime soon, I knew they accepted competitors sale ads and figured worst case she would say no... guess what? She took them no problem. I was shocked (in a good way, lol) and it may be up to the individual cashier so YMMV.. but give it a try!

  8. Walgreens has more things on "Last Chance," including the Rimmel Blushes, some of Revlon's eyeshadows, Age Rewind Foundations, and some under eye highlighters (I think) There are also some L'Oreal foundations, as well as mascaras, oh and Rimmel has some foundations as well. Remember, all of these and maybe more on "Last Chance." Oh and before I forget lots of Wet & Wild mascaras are also on "Last Chance" plus they are buy one get one 50% off (this also applies to Rimmel products) so that pretty much means you will save a lot. I happen to like the Wet & wild Mega Length Mascara and guess what? I got two of the for less than the regular price of just one. So go and check out your Walgreens!

    PS. I am also loving the Rimmel Blushes, I went today to buy 2 more shades!

  9. I saw ur display! My phone was dead (and the lady wld have been in the way as she was just setting it up) so I couldn't take a pic so when I went two days later ready to take a pic the display was gone =( I looked around the store and didn't find it anywhere! -_-

  10. BOGO1/2OFF all Milani cosmetics at CVS?? Is that correct or are my eyes deceiving me?

  11. Re: Jesse's girl sale at riteaid
    this combines with the unadvertised monthly deal on Jesse's girl.
    weekly deal: spend 15 on jg or bonne bell get 7 back
    Monthly deal: spend 10 on jg get 5 back

    My recpt: 7 jg eyeliners at 1.79 each (instead of 1.99. Not sure how I got the discount)
    And 2 lipsmackers at 1.89 each
    Use 1/2 lipsmacker coupon
    Get both 7 and 5 plus ups so all this for abt 3 plus tax

    1. The $7 & $5 +UP is also valid on the Julie G collection in case your store doesn't carry the regular Jesse's Girl line. You can use the $1 Video Values coupon on that.

      I'm going to do:

      (3) Julie G Hoilday Collection Nail Polish $3.99 each
      (2) Bonnie Bell Lipsmacker $1.89 each
      Total $15.75
      Use $1.00/1 Julie G Holiday Collection Nail Polish November Video Value Coupon
      and $1.00/2 Any two Lipsmacker products coupon
      Pay $13.75, get back $12 in +UPs
      Final total will be $1.75 for 3 polishes and 2 lip smackers!
