The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (8/17 - 8/23)

Apologies for getting this up so late--I hope to get back to posting my weekly wrap-ups on Sundays again, starting next week. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

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.

Ulta tip: This week you get free shipping on all $25+ orders on the Ulta website, no code required. Don't forget that you can also use this coupon for $3.50 off a $10 purchase (good on all drugstore brands) either online or in-store. 
CVS shoppers: The spend $30 get $10 CVS Gift Card promotion is going on again this week (details below) and we've got some good makeup sales that qualify for this deal! First, all NYX cosmetics are BOGO1/2OFF (hopefully your store has those $1 off coupons on the display this week!). Also, all MUA Makeup Academy cosmetics are BOGO1/2OFF. Not part of the CVS Gift Card promotion but still noteworthy: all Shea Moisture products are BOGOFREE this week. 
Rite Aid shoppers: We've got 40% off all L'Oreal cosmetics this week! Also, Wet n Wild products with a regular retail price of $0.99 are on sale this week for $0.69 (this is always a good time to stock up on Wild Shine polishes). Also this week, tons of haircare brands are BOGOFREE (including Organix hair and bath care) and there's a noteworthy deal on Queen Helene (see the "Other Notable Deals" section below).  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:  This Wednesday only (8/20) the Walgreens Friends & Family 20% off discount is back (in-store and online). Get the coupon HERE, but remember this is only good toward non-sale items. As for this week's sales, we've got 40% off Revlon foundation, primer, concealer, blush, powder and lip cosmetics this week and we've got got $0.99 Sinful Colors nail polishes again! Thanks to my pal Amanda of Pretty Girl Science for letting me know that the Sinful Colors sale also includes Sinful Shines, but she did encounter some issues when trying to purchase some of the Fall 2014 Sinful Colors limited edition collections. Those rang up at full price, so you may have to show the cashier the ad in this week's circular and have them adjust the price manually (there are no exclusions listed in the ad, but it's at the store's discretion as to whether or not they'll honor it). There are also some nice L'Oreal, Maybelline and Almay deals this week (see below). And just a reminder that the Walgreens August Coupon Book is available (free in-store). 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 8/17 - 8/23
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. 40 percent off L'Oreal? I'm going to finally be trying their crayon lippies! And here's hoping some new Sinful Colors are at a local Walgreens!

  2. I went to Walgreens yesterday to purchase a few bottles of Sinful Shine. The cashier told me they were not included in the sale!! How frustrating to see that they are included. Guess I'll try a different one later this week

  3. Kmart has $1 off WnW products, not sure if it is everything or not. I found the LE fall 5-pan palettes there and they also had the recent LE display with the polishes and lip stains.

  4. Are the Sinful Colors Shines being discontinued from Wags? Mine used to have all of them now I can't find them anywhere.

  5. Walgreens. Sinful shines not part of 99 cent sale. At least not for me tonight. Bummer.

  6. I went to a different Walgeeens in my city to see if Sinfulshine was included in the sale. They were. However, the selection was VERY limited. I asked the cashier about it. She stated many of the colors were being discontinued
