  1. I think you meant May 19th :)

    1. Gah! Thank you, Meg! I'm delirious right now and totally missed that. Just fixed it. :)

  2. Hi G! I was out checking on some sales today and no, the new fergie collection is not part of the 40% off and also the NYC at Rite Aid offer is a typo in the add unfortunately. It's supposed to read buy $10 get $5 back in up rewards. Still a pretty good deal, but the listed one would have been a lot better :-/

    1. I can confirm that the NYC is buy $10 get $5 back at my Rite Aid too. Boo!

  3. Yes it includes the limited edition new fergie wetnwild my waggs gave it to me. I bought most LE quads and lipsticks plus used coupons on them

  4. I would like to add to favela300 comment they have the limited edition sets for the highlighter it includes a brush it did not scan 40%off. But we explained to the associated that the ad did not state any exclusions and she was able to take the 40% off the set. So if that set is available in anyone's area and it does not scan 40% off. I would point that out. In order to get the discount on that set.

  5. i got the LE fergie lipstick in swerve for 40% off. It only includes items whose original price is 3.49-5.99, so it doesn't include the shimmer palettes that are LE because those are 6.99 becuase of the stupid kabuki brush -.- oh well, at least the shadows are 40% off & the lipsticks ) btw, the shadow palette in no filter is AMAZING! total recommend! much better quality than the original colors!

  6. Went to walgreens and they are having a HUGE markdown sale. Just a heads up
