REMINDER: The Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Event started on 9/7 and runs through 9/27 both in-store and online. Click here for my tips and the full calendar of events.

CVS shoppers: All Milani cosmetics are BOGO1/2OFF this week, so it would be a nice time to pick up some of the Fall 2014 Limited Edition Bedazzled Collection products if you can find the display. Also, all MUA Makeup Academy products are 25% off this week.

Rite Aid shoppers: This week we've got BOGOFREE all Physicians Formula eye cosmetics and concealers, and 40% off all NYC cosmetics (this would be a nice time to pick up some things from the Limited Edition Fashion Queen Collection--if you haven't seen the glitter polishes in this collection yet, check out Polish Insomniac's swatches HERE). Just a reminder abiout the Video Values coupons for September--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). NOTE: There are some nice Maybelline coupons this month, but they're listed under the "Fashion Rocks" section, not the "Beauty" section. 

Walgreens shoppers: The big news this week is that all Sinful Colors nail polishes are on sale once again for $0.99 each. This would be a nice time to pick up the Halloween 2014 polishes (I'll be swatching two of the glitters for you shortly) and I believe this sale also includes Sinful Shines, but check with your Beauty Advisor to make sure about that. Also, there are some month-long Wet n Wild sales valid now through 9/27, which I have listed below. I'm not sure if these sales will apply to the various limited edition collections, but I think they will (again, check with your Beauty Advisor to make sure). The Walgreens September Coupon Book is still available (free in-store). Click HERE for a full listing of this month's coupons (there's a $1 off Revlon lip color coupon this month). Don't forget that you can stack those coupons with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, for even more savings. 


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. I bought two of the WNW limited edition balm stains and the 25% off promo applied ($2.24 instead of $2.99). Also, I'm not sure if this promotion is still available (I think it ran with the 25% off promo), but if you buy two participating WNW products you get 500 Walgreens points -- which I did, with the limited edition products.

    1. Thank you so much! Yeah, I wasn't sure about the 500 pts part being a month-long promo too, because it was only in the weekly ad last week. I'll try to stop in this week and find out. Thanks again!!

  2. I'm glad NYC is on sale again at Rite Aid. I wait for those to get their awesome nail polish top coat.

  3. Bought some Sinful Shines and they weren't included. I didn't push it though, so maybe someone can get them for half off.

  4. I bought Milani's Bella Taupe shadow and clear top coat polish. I can't find the Color Statement polish in Cupcake Icing anywhere! None of the CVSs have it, my WalMart doesn't carry Milani and Walgreens doesn't have the newer polishes. Has anyone seen it? Maybe it's only available online...

    1. Yes, I picked up Cupcake Icing at my local CVS.

  5. I was just at walgreens and bought the 3 LE milani lipsticks and 1 LE milani constellation gel. None showed as being on sale. I might try and get it adjusted tomorrow, but just a heads up to check your reciepts!

  6. I went to CVS today and bought the MUA Exfoliate sugar scrub it was $4.something and CVS had mailed me an MUA booklet full of introductions to all of their lip products. It also had coupons so I used the $2 off any lip product coupon and got it for $2 something :-) .. I went on the Wet N Wild LE Halloween and Milani Bedazzled hunt to both CVS and Walgreens but nothing just yet.

  7. I found Nexxus Youth Renewal Dry Shampoo on clearance from $29.99 to $9.99 there is? or was a Nexxus $3 off printable coupon available, I happened to have them and bout one for $6.99... also on clearance was Nexxus Youth Renewal Pump and Style Blow Dry from $20 something down to $9.49 -$3 coupon.. loved it!!

  8. Thanks for sharing, G! I've got to find those glitters - I need backups! No Rite Aids around here, I'll have to check Kmart!
