The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (12/2 - 12/8)

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:
  • $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)
Click here to access the following printable coupons:
  • $1 off any Maybelline Color Sensational lip gloss, lip color or lip liner
  • $1 off any Rimmel eye cosmetic
  • and more...
Click here to access the following printable coupons:
  • $0.50 off Carmex Lip Conditioner (click here for my review)
  • $1 off Dial Hello Kitty body wash (click here for my review)
  • $1 off Dial Hello Kitty bar soap, liquid hand soap or foaming hand soap

CVS shoppers: The big news this week, which trumps any of the regular sales, is the return of the Beauty Clearance Sale (click here for my master list, updated daily). Remember that can use Extra Bucks during this sale (although BOGOs and Rewards offers do NOT apply to clearance merchandise). Some locations will also allow you to use manufacturer's coupons during this sale (but if the final clearance price is below the minimum purchase required to use the coupon, the store may not accept it). As for regular weekly sales, the Spoiled by Wet n Wild Nail Pail is on sale again ($6.99 with $3 back in Extra Bucks).
Rite Aid shoppers: Prestige and Jesse's Girl are BOGO1/2OFF this week and when you spend $12 (after the BOGO1/2OFF deduction) you'll get $6 back in +UP Reward. This is probably the best deal I've seen on Prestige so far this year, so it's a great time to stock up.  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! There's also a coupon for $1.50 off Revlon ColorSilk hair color, which you can pair with this week's sale (ColorSilk is 2/$6 with $1+UP). After rewards and coupons, your final price for two boxes of ColorSilk will be $3.50 (or $1.75 each) which is the probably the lowest price I've seen all year.

Walgreens shoppers: 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). There's a great deal on Revlon nail color this week: $4.99 each with $3 back in Register Rewards. 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, please leave a comment/tweet me a pic/share with me on Facebook. I'd love to know if you spot it!

  1. I've seen the Beauty Ambassador with your nail art at a few metro Detroit Walgreens.

    1. Yay!! Thanks so much for letting me know, Heidi! *hugs*

  2. so rite aid has "BOGO1/2OFF all Revlon cosmetics and beauty tools; spend $10 on any of these products get $4+UP (limit 2)" ... does that mean the limit 2 only applies to the BOGO 1/2OFF or the $4+UP?

    1. That limit applies to the +UPs (not the BOGO). Hope that helps!

    2. thanks so much for the clarification!

  3. The one thing I hate about Walgreens is that once you get register rewards they are like manufacturer coupons not like extra bucks so on your next purchase you can not add coupons, it is not like the store's $. Where as in CVS and Rite Aid it is like paying with money and you can use coupons on the transaction.

  4. Thanks for the posting! I racked up on the milani nail art, runway eye shadows, revlon color burst lip stick, revelon custom eyes ( I got those for $.25 each due to the instant $2.00 coupon ), revelon photo ready cream blush in coral reef, black radiance lip gloss,

  5. I bought a Revlon Colorstay polish today at the cosmetics counter, and the cashier had a $2 off coupon she gave me - I paid $3.38 with tax and got $3 RR back! See if your Walgreens makeup counter has coupons too (I think the coupon was only for the ColorStay variety).

  6. I have a question during the cvs sale going on right now i bought 4 milani things ! But they didnt apply the BOGO half off ?! Is it because its on sale?! Thnks G
