CVS Winter Beauty Clearance Sale has begun!

LAST UPDATE: 2:45 PM PST, 12/12

Yep, the mother of all drugstore clearance sales has officially begun, and right on schedule! As with years past, this page is a place where we can share what we've spotted on clearance (master list) which I will update regularly (I'll put a link to this page in the Winter 2013 Beauty Sales Round-Up on the top menu bar of this blog, for easy access).

Please read the following tips, which I have created after several years of covering this sale:
  • If you do not see the little green or pink clearance stickers on items at your store, IT DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN THAT THESE PRODUCTS ARE NOT ON CLEARANCE IN THE SYSTEM. Try taking some items to the red scanner box and SCAN THEM. They might come up on clearance in the system even if you don't see clearance stickers on the merchandise!
  • CVS sometimes allows you to use coupons on clearance merchandise, which means you might be able to score some of these products for free or close to free if you have any coupons (this is at the store's discretion, so it may vary from store to store).
  • Almost always, CVS will state "excludes clearance" on their weekly sales, so don't expect to get a rewards offer in conjunction with a clearance item. HOWEVER, your purchases certainly count toward your reward for being a CVS Beauty Club Member (Beauty Club Members earn $5 in Extra Bucks for every $50 spent on beauty products).
  • Just because something is marked on clearance during one of these sales does not necessarily mean that it's about to be discontinued. HOWEVER, often times it is an indicator that the product is about to be discontinued. If you love anything listed below, I wouldn't hesitate to stock up, just in case the product does eventually get discontinued.
  • There is no end-date to this type of sale, as the object is to get old product out and bring in new product. So these products should be on sale until most everything is wiped out and the new 2014 products take their places.

Thanks in advance for your contributions to this list. I am grateful every year for your tips and info, and I can't wait to see what you spot on clearance this time around!

PS: If you're on Instagram and you post pics of your CVS Beauty Clearance Sale hauls, I encourage you to tag your posts #cvsclearance so that we all can see!


  1. I'm headed to CVS tonight to use a 20%-off coupon they sent me, so now I'll be on the hunt for hot discounts!

    1. unfortunetly most of the percent off coupons exclude items on clearance..just make sure to read the fine print.

  2. Hey G, this is Angela of gymba24. I have seen and bought a few Lumene items for 75% off. I forgot all the products but the ones I bought that were 75% off at 3 san diego CVS's were: Lumene Vitamin C+ Bright Skin Radiance Nectar, Lumene Vitamin C+ Dry Skin Comfort Radiance Cocktail, Lumene Vitamin C+ Anti-Puffiness Roll-On Eye Serum

    1. Thank you SO much, Angela!! Will add to the list! :D

  3. Walgreens had the original Milani Shadow Eyez for I believe $4.79.

  4. Ohhh might hit up CVS for the Sally Hansen pens!

  5. Got the revlon double ended shadow sticks for 75% off, the revlon eye shadow palette in grafitti for 75% off and sally hansen lip gloss for about 1.30.

  6. Our store had several Revlon cream and powder Blushes (cream and powder) and Just Bitten products 75% off. I had some L'Oreal manufacturer coupons $2 off a face product and $1 off Nail Product and was able to use those with the clearance blush and nail polish. I bought some other things and earned ECB's so i'm going back to another store tomorrow for more!!

    1. Thanks Liz! Will add the Revlon stuff to the list!

  7. Just hit two CVS stores in the Nashville area. They had everything in dopa2's pix marked down, too. Other things I spotted:

    Wet 'n' Wild - 50% off
    trios in Knock on Wood, On Cloud 9, Cool as a Cucumber, possibly another colorful one (no neutrals)
    Blue Had Me at Hello 8-pan palette
    About half the Fast Dry nail polishes, including Hannah Pinktana and Blue Wants to Be a Millionaire

    Cover Girl - 50% off
    All e/s singles, including Mink, Tapestry Taupe, Brown Smolder, Swiss Chocolate, Golden Sunrise

    lip glosses in a tube
    TruBlend and Clean liquid foundation

    Physicians Formula - 75% off
    Shimmer Strips in Vegas, Waikiki, Miami, Sunset

    Definitely a ton of overlap with the Rite Aid clearance, esp. in Almay, Revlon and Sally Hansen. HTH!

    1. Awesome, thank you!

    2. Getedited, this is SO helpful! Thank you so much!!!! Will add all your info to the list! :D

  8. I found Revlon Balm Stain's in Darling and Charm for 75% off. All the blushes, too, except the photoready cream, but I didn't check the price. The Darling lip stain was also on clearance at Target a few weeks ago, so I guess it's safe to say these are discontinued shades?

    1. Thank you so much for confirming those two shades! Will add to the list! :D

    2. Oops. I just checked. Precious was on sale, not Charm. (Though I did run charm through to see if it was, and it rang up regular price.)

  9. I went to four different CVS stores and Rimmel Lasting Finish pro definitely not marked 75% off. I purchased what I could find in the displays for chirstmas gifts

  10. Just came back from my CVS in NYC where nothing was marked. With the help of Instagram and #cvsclearance, I was able to scan a bunch of Physicians Formula things and narrowed it down to what I did want to actually buy. Of course, prices here are higher than elsewhere so I know others have gotten things cheaper.

    - The Powder Palette Multi-Colored Face Powder in Creamy Natural 2494 was $3.75 instead of the original $14.99. I was very excited about this because it was for "Fair to Light Skin Tones" and I'm super pale, whereas the other two I scanned weren't priced for clearance.
    - The Concealer 101 Perfecting Concealer Duo in Green/Light 3683 was $2.12 instead of $8.49.

    1. Thanks so much!! Will add to the list! :D

  11. I also picked up Olay 2 in 1 daily facial cloths. They are 50% off .= D

    1. Thank you! Will add to the next update!!

  12. Am I missing something here? I went to my local store and nothing was marked and nothing came up on clearance when I scanned it. I live in PA.

    1. Sadly, there are stores in tourist areas and other highly populated areas that do not take part in this sale (see the comment right below this one). I would try another location!

  13. Unfortunately, my CVS is located at the corner near a college campus, so none of the Beauty Clearance Sales apply. ):

    1. Bummer! Are there any other locations in your area?

    2. Yes, thankfully. I will try to head home soon and see if I can score a deal.

    3. my cvs is RIGHT in the middle of a college campus. None of the items were marked, but all the ones mentioned that I tried rang up as if they were on clearance!!

  14. All Milani lipsticks 2.99

    Revlon colorburst gloss in Bordeaux 75% off

    1. Thank you!! Will add to the next update!

  15. I got Revlon Colorstay Whipped Cream in 160 Rich Ginger and Revlon Age Defying concealer in 02 Light Medium for 75% off near Phoenix, AZ.

    1. Thank you!! Will add to the next update!!

  16. How long do these sales go?? I didn't even know this was a thing! haha

    1. See the last bullet point in my tips at the top of this post, please.

  17. For the record, all shades of the Sally Hansen chubby pencils were marked down at my location. I got every shade for 1.25 a piece.
    Also Revlon Colorburst gloss in Crystal Water and the Colorstay nail polish in French Roast, which looks gorgeous!

    Thank you so much for keeping track of it all for us.

  18. I went to my cvs and they did not have any stickers on them and I asked a woman that worked there she did not know anything about. So I looked at your images and what you wrote up and they were on sale. So the lady said she has to check out your blog. Also I stoped at my Local Dollar Tree Store and they had malini nail polish as well as sally hansen magnetic nail polish too.

  19. Just picked up Revlon Photo Ready Mousse Makeup, Revlon Nearly Naked foundation and Revlon Colorstay Whipped for all less than $4. This truly is the best time of the year.

  20. Thanks for all your hard work. A few of the Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant nail polishes are 50% off as well (probably 5-6 shades). I bought shade number 225, a copper color (I don't know the proper name of as it is not marked as such). Also, Lumene eye makeup remover was $2.99. If anyone buys any of the Physician's Formula items, check the exp. dates as I found a loose powder foundation marked for 75% off but the exp. date was 2012, it doesn't mean the item is bad but they do have to put the date on there because of the sunscreen factor.

  21. Some additional things I saw in Cocoa Beach (I have pics too!)

    Sensationail 50% off select shades
    Lipsmackers 75% off (Dr. Pepper, Watermelon, Cotton Candy)
    Sally Hansen Gel Nail Polish 75%off (various shades)

    PS Ross had some awesome Physicians Formula deals...3 products in a pack for 7.99. I took some pictures of the combos if you'd like them :)

  22. So just a heads up for anyone looking for the Nicole polishes...not all of the Modern Family and Selena Gomez polishes were scanning as 75% off for me. I'd say my store had about a third to a half of each collection and I scanned them all. The ones that WERE on clearance:

    Selena Gomez collection: Inner Sparkle, Love Song, Stars at Night, Scarlett
    Modern Family collection: Candid Cameron, Luke of the Draw

    Definitely worth scanning them, though!

  23. Woot woot for great deals on clearances. TY for posting my photos on here, seriously happy to help out. I get excited walking in the store and snapping photos. I feel like a spy or a loser.. maybe even both? LOL I love checking back on here to see what else is on the list. Going back tomorrow! :)

    1. A spy, definitely NOT a loser. You are helping ALL of us. :)

  24. As soon as I saw this I rushed to get the kids to bed and RAN out the door at 8pm. LOL THANK YOU!!! I get to try so many new fun products because of this and you informing us so thank you G!
    I lean toward only buying 75% off and only Revlon had the stickers so I took your list and kept going back and forth to the Red Box scanner and they were ringing up. WOOT! On one of my trips to the scanner the Shift Supervisor walked by and I said to her "I'm clearing out the clearance makeup" She laughed and said "Great". She then made a point to find me and tell me that she was the one marking down and there will be a bunch more tomorrow. I told her it looked like they were already marked in the system but no stickers and she said that was right. I asked her if there was any way I could see the master list and she happily handed it over to me as long as I promised to give it back. It was SO MUCH FUN having the inside scoup of clearance items that nobody else knew about. If you are lucky enough to see the list, just a warning, it is very difficult to decipher. You have to match up numbers to the sticker on the display that has nothing to do with the barcode. Good Luck my fellow MUA!
    FYI, the Revlon tools are only 50% off, not 75% per the list and the one item I bought.

  25. I went to two CVS stores. One had nothing discounted (yet), but the other one had good pickings, including most of what you've already reported (except the MIlani hadn't been reduced yet):
    Outlast Stay Brilliant nail polishes marked 50% off (probably 6 to 8 shades, mostly pinks, a couple shimmery metallics, a deep blue)
    A couple CG Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balms knocked down 50% (the plum and the mocha shades only)
    One Revlon Moon Candy nail polish duo (Cosmic) reduced 75%
    All the Sally Hansen jumbo lip crayon shades were 75% off
    A few Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Nail Colors were slashed 75% off, too: Plume, Firefly, Copperhead and Azure were the ones I spotted.
    They had a big cart of clearance stickers out, too, so obviously more is being slashed.

  26. Thank you and your readers for all this info!! :-)

  27. I LOVE the Milani Infinite liquid eyeliners. I use the shade Unlimited & use a push brush with it to tightline my eyes. It wears like IRON & doesn't irritate my eyes either.

    50% off is a steal!! I think my back up needs a back up!

  28. I bought the Lumene Time Freezing Firming Eye Cream for 75% off at $6.49

  29. Rimmel lip gloss in shade number 050 & 260 are also 75%off :)

  30. My local Kmart has almost half of the Revlon products 75% off as well. I will try to get a pic.

  31. Thanks to everyone that have contributed to this list!! SO HELPFUL!

    50% OFF:
    - L'Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lash STARTER Kit $8.39
    ^ includes FULL sizes of Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara, Blackest Black & Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner, Black

    75% OFF:
    - Nuance Salma Hayek Perfect Lips Lip Quad Cool 215 $2.62 (Warm 210 was not on sale)

    Physicians Formula pH Matchmaker Powered Lipgloss in Light Pink & Natural (new) were not on clearance for me in NC. But the shade "Pink" still was.

  32. Someone please tell me they are not going to stop making the Revlon whip and naked foundations I love these! Is it some colors or all of them I'm in the medium range.

  33. I've been to 3 CVS stores. One store had the clearance stickers posted, the other two did not. At all 3 stores the L'Oreal Hip eyeshadow duos and the Revlon Illuminance Cream Eyeshadows are scanning at full price.

    At the store with the clearance stickers, I found the Almay Makeup Eraser Sticks for 50% off, and Physicians Formula Youthful Wear Foundation for 75% off. (All shades had clearance stickers).

    1. Thank you for mentioning this. I'll be sure to scan in my items to check prices. Also interested in the l'oreal hip duos, some revlon polishes and milani stuff...actually not quite happy some of this stuff is being discontinued...

  34. Milani Baked Blush in 'Fantastico Mauve' was 50% off at my local CVS.

    Two of the PF Shimmer Strips were not on clearance at this location (scanned and checked). One was Wakiki and I forget the other. I really wanted to get Wakiki too but I'll check another location lol.

  35. The Milani baked blush in the shade Fantastico Mauve is 50% OFF at my CVS

  36. Add to the list - There's a few Sally Hansen and KISS fashion nails 50% off.

    I personally got the toenails.

    KISS Fashion Toenails Short length (30 toenails) in TN02 Bermuda - 50% off
    Milani Nail color - Teddy Brown, Beach Front, Key West, Signature Gold 50% off
    Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle in Misty Rose 75% off
    Physician's Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Illuminating Brozer in Light Bronzer or Bronzer is indeed 75% off
    Revlon Cream Blush in Rosy Glow 75% off
    Neutrogena Oil-free Eye makeup remover with UPC ending in 24313 is on clearance for 50% but I tried one on the shelf and it was not on clearance maybe different UPC bar code.
    Revlon Sunset Peach is indeed 75% off and I used a $2 Revlon coupon and got it for 7 cents.

  37. I got Milani baked blush in Fantastico Mauve for 50% off today.

  38. Revlon Colorstay Nail polish in French Toast Indigo Blue, Spanish Moss, Bonsai. I was gonna get French Toast or Indigo Blue but I can't see myself wearing those colors. So I took a pass.

  39. Lumene products were only 25% off at my CVS. And so far nothing else has been marked down for clearance :/.

  40. Sadly, most things never go on clearance at my CVS, but I think it's because it's the only one in the city, and it's small with a very limited selection (still no NYC display, for example). I scanned a bunch of stuff yesterday, no dice :(

    I had MUCH better luck at a couple of rite aids, plus I had all those +up rewards from their Sunday sale the other week :D

  41. Thank you for the list, I've linked you in my blog post about what I snagged. I used this post to make sure I got everything I wanted!

  42. It's funny how much it differs from store to store... I went yesterday and there was very little on sale. Everything in the Milani and Revlon displays were full-price. But I bought the L'Oreal Visible Lift Serum Absolute liquid foundation for 50% off (wearing it today and love it), and saw the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Glow Sheers (tinted moisturizer, I think?) for 50% off, as well.

  43. I went to my CVS today and they had the MIlani single powder eyeshadow for 50% off and the Wet n Wild 8-pan palette in Comfort Zone for 50% off as well. I took pictures if you would like to use them.

  44. I was at CVS today in Burlington, MA. The new Maybelline The Buffs lipstick collection and the Baby Skin primer are both BOGO 1/2. I know you don't have a section for BOGO but just want to let you know!

  45. I WISH Sensationail was 75% off, but alas it is only 50%. Still a smokin deal.

  46. Hey G! Your favorite holy grail "Black Radiance Complexion Perfection Face Primer" is 50% off, including other black radiance items. The only other item I can remember right now is the baked eye shadows, but it was tons of product marked down.

  47. Sally Hansen Moisture Twist 2-in-1 Primer + Color (lip gloss) - 75% off

    It may be all colors, but it definitely includes Mocha Mingle and Spun Sugar (one of my go-to's thanks to G).

  48. I stocked up like a MAD woman on the Physicians Formula! I discovered that I love the tinted moisturizers and also found a couple items I returned because I didn't like them. I'm so thankful that I started reading your blog because it has helped me out so much. I'm on a small budget with lavish taste LOL I went to three different CVS and one didn't have stickers on anything but when scanned the items were clearanced just like the other stores YAY! I must have saved over $200 with everything I bought and that is just amazing. The store that didn't have any stickers was a mess but I also overheard the employees laughing "someone needs assistance in isle 5, why couldn't they just walk up to the counter then". I guess customer service is out the window and obviously someone there isn't appreciating their job. Anywho no biggie because that store had the most clearance stock and I grabbed everything that I love! :)

  49. I scanned all of the Wet n Wild and NYC polishes yesterday. None of the Fergie, Megalast or $0.99 WnW polishes were on clearance.
    These Fast Dry colors are 50% for $0.99 each. 224C, 225C, 226C, 223C, 236C, 235C, 228C, 227C AND 234C.
    NYC polishes that are 75% for $0.25. Colors 140, 139, 145, 141, and 111.
    NYC polishes that are 75% for $0.49. Colors 203, 205, 270, 272 and 238.

  57. My Cvs had covergirl lash blast and lash blast fusion 50% off in brown AND black. As well as black in clump crusher.

  58. Has anybody found clearance items in any NY CVS?

  59. NY Manhattan - 14th st and 8th ave cvs put up the 50% and 75% clearance stickers.

  60. Hey G, a few of us encountered the scenario outlined today on this IG post of mine where PF items are no longer ringing up on clearance:

    They're all now full-price for the stores we went to. These are the ones with no stickers but were ringing up on sale last week. Not sure what is going on but just thought you should know.

  61. Careful with the skincare stuff. I bought a Lumens Radiance Nectar and it expired in April! There was no way to check the date until I opened the packaging. I'll be returning this one, unfortunately.

  62. The Clear Strong Lengths Conditioner was 50% off at my CVS

  63. I went to 4 cvs and none of them had clearaclearance! Why??? Im so mad!

  64. Went to the CVS's in my area. No clearance items there either:(

  65. unfortunately, the CVS in my area does not have the Milani blush in Rose d'oro on sale, but everything else is :-)

  66. I bought the Neutrogena Wave Sonic i believe it's called for 75% off. It was 4.24 at my store and there is a $3 Q on their website. I think the refills are on sale as well!

    Olay Oil Minimizing Toner $2.12
    Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser/Mask for oily skin $2.19 at my store as well

  67. Thank you so much for this list! i'm hoping I can grab a few of the Revlon Smoky Shadow Sticks, and the NYC will probably be dirt cheap now! Maybe I can pick up one of the Physician's Formula Palettes.

  68. At my CVS, they had L'oreal gel liners 50% off, voluminous original (in black brown), infallible shadows in Golden Sage, Bottomless Java, Glistening Garnet, Amber Rush, Sultry Smoke and whatever the black shade is called. Also the colour riche quads in what happens in vegas, hollywood icon, neon skirt and love to hate me. I live around 6 CVS and only the one had these l'oreal products on clearance

  69. At my CVS, it was CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion in Black on sale for 50% off, no other shades. Does anyone have tips on what shades of LashBlast original and length were on sale?

  70. The Nicole opi were still same cost.

  71. To get $1 off the Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizers, visit their site ( and take their glow advisor quiz.

    The total with the coupon for me was $1.87.

  72. I got the Lash Blast Clump Crusher in BLACK for %50 off, rang up full price, but they did give me the discount since it had the sticker on it. So probably the employee made an error.

    There are a few Ardell lashes stickered besides 108. I got 102, 106, and 125. There were also about 3 or 4 empty slots, so those might have been stickered too and I missed out.

    I just noticed that there is no Maybelline. I wonder why, since they must have new products. It's like last year when there was no Milani clearance stickered.

  73. I forgot to ask a question. Under Covergirl you have Wet Slicks gloss. Is that the cylinder tube gloss? Because if it is then I noticed that all the Wet Slicks Fruit Spritzers glosses are on clearance too (squeeze tube).

  74. In Madison, AL Comfort Zone and Organic Wear Pressed Powder at least the shade that I grabbed in the lightest was not on clearance.

    I bought on clearance:
    Burts Bees Pepperment for feet
    Physcians Formula Shimmer Strip Bronzer in Waikiki
    Wet N Wild trio in Knock on Wood

  75. I got 2 Wet n Wild palettes in Blue had me at hello for $2.49 each. Thanks for sharing! By the way, they didn't have the tag but I scanned them :)

    Neutrogena Crease Proof Eyeshadow 50% off = $5.25

    I think it's on all shades, but the Plum shade was OOS.

  77. I got some products that were priced 75 off but at the system were 50, the girl called the manager and they fixed it because they are still mot in the system at that discount yet

  78. Olay Total Effects Tone Correcting Eye Treatment 75% off - $5.74 (this was behind a glass window display)

    There's also a promotion where if you spend $12 on cvs brand, you get $4 EB back.

  79. I went to CVS again today even though I have already picked up a ton of stuff, and I found (and got) 2 products from Essence of Beauty that were both 75% off. One was a 2 pack of round sponges (they came to $.75) and the other was a 4 pack of cleansing sponges (they came to $1.19). G I can send you some pictures if you would like, just let me know. :)

  80. i was wondering if the cvcs clearance sale is still going on?

  81. I was searching for something I bought today at our town's sad Kmart( its always empty). I got the Physicians Formula Eyebrightener Multi-Colored Eyelighter. It was 5.19 and I had a 3.00 coupon. I bought it because it reminded me of some older PF shadows I had and loved and because it was made in Italy. I could not find a review of it anywhere. Sad to see it went on clearance in 2013. Oy.
