The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (5/12 - 5/18)

Your weekly wrap-up of drugstore beauty sales and more...

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). Also don't forget that Dollar Tree now accepts manufacturer's coupons, which can mean FREE (or close to it) products.
NOTE: If you don't see the following coupons when you click the links below, that means the coupons have already been taken down. Sorry if you missed them, but sometimes they go quickly!
Click here to access the following printable coupons: 
  • $2 off any Rimmel mascara 
  • $1 off any Revlon ColorStay Ulitmate Suede Lipstick
  • $1 off any Rimmel bronzer 
  • $1 any Carmex Healing Lotion or Cream (redeemable only at Target)

CVS shoppers: If you've been eyeing a specific Revlon nail color lately, this week would be a good time to get it. When you buy any Revlon nail color, you'll get $3 back in Extra Bucks (limit 1).  Even better if you happen to have a manufacturer's coupon or Extra Bucks to go along with this sale! Also, buy any 2 Nicole by OPI nail colors this week and you'll get $5 back in Extra Bucks (limit 1). 
Rite Aid shoppers: 30% off all NYC cosmetics this week. And I'm beginning to think that Markwins, which purchased Physicians Formula last year, might be getting ready for a major overhaul of Physicians Formula because the sales at both Rite Aid and CVS on PF cosmetics have been kind of insane these last few months. Speaking of, when you spend $15 on any PF cosmetics this week, you'll get $10 back in +UP Rewards (limit 2)! The Rite Aid Nail Extravaganza is back again this year (see below for all of the details about this annual event). If you like Samy haircare, there's a $1 off printable coupon (link above) that you can combine with the BOGOFREE sale this week (details below). Don't forget about the May Video Values coupons--there are lots of beauty coupons that you can stack with any manufacturer's coupons you may have.
Walgreens shoppers: I'm getting tired of saying this but, once again this week, no extra-special or fun deals for beauty. Come on, Wags! Give us another $0.99 Sinful Colors sale, or even a 2/$3 sale! The May coupon book is now in stores (free). Here's what's in this month's book.
SALES FOR WEEK OF 5/12 - 5/18
The following sale info has been obtained from national circulars. I do my best to recap sales that are happening in ALL regions of the United States, but certain sales vary from region to region.

  1. Every week I keep hoping for a 99c sale for Sinful Colors, haha! They honestly haven't had one since last fall, I believe! Surely they'll have one soon O_O

  2. I'm so excited I got the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs for only $2.59 after the 20% off, $4/$12 cosmetic coupon, and $5 Sally Hansen Extra Bucks! I've been wanting to try this for years!

  3. One of my Rite Aids still had a display of PF airbrush powder, bronzer and blush with $3 peelies attached. With the sale I was able to get all three for $30 and $20 back in +up. That is $3.30 each.

  4. @nouveau cheap..... Should I be on emergency mode and stock up on PF favorites??? I didn't know Markwins bought them.

  5. For some reason these posts aren't showing up on my bloglovin feed! I'm ready to get some summer revlon polishes from CVS :)

  6. I went to my local Walgreens yesterday and got some re-formulated Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail polishes for $5. They were on sale for $5.99 or 2 for $10 with a Walgreens balance rewards card. These included all colors in the SH Complete Salon Manicure line. I think Sally Hansen recently redid the formulas on the Complete Salon Manicure polishes so I am happy to give them a try. Not sure if this is at all Walgreens, but thought I would point it out!
