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).

  • $0.75 off Almay Makeup Remover
  • $2.25 off one Optimum Salon haircare or Dark & Lovely haircare item 
  • $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)

Since it's already Monday evening, I'm going to do things a bit differently for this week's round-up. I'm only going to post the cosmetics deals and, for everything else, I'll include a link to the weekly circular for each particular store, so that you can see the other beauty deals for yourself (haircare, skincare, etc.). Sorry for the abbreviated post this week, but it's the best I can do to shave some time off my other blogging priorities in a week where so much is going on. Thanks for your understanding!
CVS shoppers: The big news again this week is the return of the Beauty Clearance Sale (click here for the master list, updated regularly).If you haven't been able to find the Revlon Lip Butters on clearance in your area yet, here's a deal you do not want to miss: this week all Color Burst and Super Lustrous lip colors are $6.99 with $4 back in Extra Bucks and the limit is 6 (excludes clearance), which means you can take advantage of this Extra Bucks deal six times. Yay! Oh, and all Revlon nail color is on sale for $4.99 this week with $3 back in Extra Bucks and the limit on that offer is six as well (excludes clearance). If you've been wanting any of the new Physicians Formula products, this week is a great time to pick one up. When you spend $10 on any Physicians Formula cosmetics, you'll get $6 back in Extra Bucks (limit 1, excludes clearance). One more thing: all Milani cosmetics are BOGO1/2OFF this week, excluding clearance, of course (every time Milani goes on BOGO1/2OFF I seem to get people telling me they've never seen Milani go on sale before, so I like to point this sale out whenever it runs just to remind you that Milani does go on sale quite often at CVS!).
Rite Aid shoppers: Some good deals this week for makeup (see below for all the details) but the one that I want to make extra sure you know about is that all Physicians Formula eye cosmetics and concealers are BOGOFREE. Rite Aid has some new Facebook coupons up, but you have to act quickly because they will be gone once 10,000 customers have claimed them. Click here to access the coupon for $2 off Almay intense i-color (can be combined with the sale this week--all Almay eye makeup is $5.99 each) and click here to access the coupon for $10 off the SensatioNail Starter Kit. Don't forget that the December Video Values coupons are up (unless otherwise specified, you can stack those coupons with any manufacturer's coupons you may have). There are $1 off coupons for Revlon Lip Butters, ColorStay Smoky Shadow Sticks and Overtime Mascara this month.
Walgreens shoppers: Not much to report this week for makeup sales, but for eos fans, their lip balms are on sale for 2/$6 and when you buy 2 you get 3,000 points. Just a reminder that the December Coupon Book is now available in stores, and there are lots of beauty coupons in this month's book (click here for the full list). And of course if you happen see the Wet n Wild Beauty Ambassador display, please leave a comment/tweet me a pic/share with me on Facebook. I'd love to know if you spot it!

  1. Just FYI for CVS: Some areas have a 2-page ad instead of the regular 4-page ad, so many of the product deals (like the Physicians Formula one) aren't available in the areas with a 2-page ad.

    Unfortunately, my area (Birmingham, AL) has the 2 pager.
