The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (8/10 - 8/16)

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

Note: If you are new to drugstore sales and you are not sure how BOGO1/2OFF sales work, please take a moment to click here. Hope that helps!

REMEMBER: Some of the coupons listed below may go nicely with this week's sales, so take a moment to match them up accordingly. 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, so don't hesitate to print them when you see them.

CVS shoppers: If you've been wanting to try some of the new Milani products, this week all Milani cosmetics are BOGO1/2OFF. Also, there are some nice haircare BOGOFREE deals this week (Toni & Guy, Marc Anthony, Salon Grafix and more--see below for details). I also want to mention that this week when you spend $30 on qualifying items throughout the store, you'll receive a $10 CVS Gift Card. I have highlighted the qualifying makeup purchases in red below, but see this week's ad for everything else that qualifies for this promotion. The CVS Semi-Annual Beauty Clearance Sale is still lingering on (click here for the "master list") but I haven't seen any new markdowns in a while.  
Rite Aid shoppers:  We have some rare sales this week! First, when you spend $10 on any Maybelline cosmetics, you'll receive $6 back in +UP Rewards (limit 1 offer per card). This is very rare--we usually only see "spend $10 get $3+UP" for Maybelline. Also, all Rite Aid Renewal makeup brushes are BOGO1/2OFF this week. These rarely go on sale (you can click here and here for some of my past reviews).  Not rare, but still noteworthy: when you spend $15 on any Physicians Formula lip or face cosmetics this week, you'll get $10+UP (limit 2 offers per card). Don't forget that the Video Values coupons for August are live--click the little red box in the upper right corner that says "show all offers" to view all of the coupons for this month (remember that these are store coupons, which means you can stack them with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, for even more savings). 
Walgreens shoppers:  In this week's Walgreens ad, there's a coupon for $3 off Neutrogena foundation, powder, primer, concealer or blush. There is also a printable $1 off Neutrogena foundation coupon here (you must register to access) that you can stack with the Walgreens $3 off coupon. I also want to mention that all InStyle Impressions fragrances are BOGOFREE again this week (I mentioned my love of these last week and I know that some of you also love them). The Walgreens August Coupon Book is now available (free in-store) and there are some good beauty coupons this month that you can use with the sales below. Click HERE for a full listing of this month's coupons. Don't forget that you can stack those coupons with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, for even more savings. 

SALES FOR WEEK OF 8/10 - 8/16
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. Also, you may live in an area that does not run national sales. If you do not see these sales in your area, check with your local store manager for more details.

Did I miss any hot beauty deals this week? If so, please leave a comment below and fill us in (and thanks in advance!)


  1. You also have until 8/12 to get 5000 points on purchases $25+ at Walgreens! So hit the makeup aisles early! ;)

    1. Ooooh, nice!! Thanks so much for the great tip! :)

  2. I wonder if the BOGO1/2 off on the Sally Hansen at Walgreens includes the Miracle Gel polishes

    1. It does! And be on the lookout for in-store coupons! They are on the back of the Miracle Gel brochures ;)

  3. I heard that one of the drug stores was going to have either Maybelline or Revlon 40% off next week...have you heard anything to that effect?

    1. Yes, Revlon at Walgreens. Take a look at my post from yesterday about the hot deals coming soon. All of the details are there including links to coupons that you can use with this sale!

  4. If anyone uses the st. Ives green tea scrub you can get a really good deal at target this week. They are $3.79 at my target so buy 3 and use a coupon for $3 off $10 st. Ives from and target is also running the promo that you get a $5 gift card when you buy 3 so with coupon and gift card you are only paying $3.37 for 3 or just a $1.12 each!


  5. hi , g !

    i was wondering if you could mix & match the items qualifying in the spend $30 get $10 gc deal ??
