CVS shoppers: We've got B2G1FREE all Wet n Wild cosmetics this week, and also B2G1FREE all NYC cosmetics. Also, the new CVS Beauty 360 cosmetic brushes are 25% off this week (I'll be reviewing one of the new eyeshadow brushes this week) and there's another good Physicians Formula deal this week too (see details below). And once again, all Shea Moisture products are BOGOFREE this week (great time to stock up on faves). 

Rite Aid shoppers: All Wet n Wild cosmetics and Fergie nail enamels are 40% off this week. Also, all Physicians Formula foundations, powders, concealers, blushes and bronzers are 40% off. And here's a nice little deal for my fellow polish fanatics: this week when you spend $5 on any Sinful Colors, Bonita or NYC nail enamels, you'll get $2+UP (limit 2 +UP offers per card). For those new to these types of deals, you can mix and match between all three brands--you just need to spend a minimum of $5 total to get the $2+UP (and if you spend $10 you'll get $4+UP). This is your last full week to grab 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: Select Wet n Wild cosmetics are 25% off this week (per the Walgreens website, this sale also includes Fergie lipsticks and nail enamels, and it should include limited edition WnW products too, but check with your Beauty Advisor to be sure). Most products from Wet n Wild's core line are on sale this week, but you can click here to see which products are not. Lumene skincare is also 25% off this week, and when you buy 2 Lumene products you'll get 3,000 points. I'm pretty sure this sale includes the Lumene BB and CC creams, but check with your Beauty Advisor to be sure. This is your last full week to grab the Walgreens September Coupon Book (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. Don't forget this week there is a Target coupon (it is printable or it was in the ad yesterday) or Mobile Coupon (text BLUSH to 827438) for $5 off $20 and $10 off $35 beauty purchase - this includes Cosmetics, Skin Care and Hair Care. AND you can stack this coupon w/manufacturer coupons for bigger savings!

  2. In the Target flyer ( and on the website) there's a coupon for $5 off a Beauty purchase of $20 or more.

  3. I spotted some new Bonita polishes at Rite Aid. Kind of a French impressionist theme going on with the display, like punched up pastels. All seemed to have shimmery finishes, but nothing was too unique, but for $2.49 it's a nice price. It had everything from a shimmery beige to a shimmery coral-pink to a deep wine shimmer. Not a sale item necessarily but I was happy to see something new close to home.

  4. I used the target $10 off $35 deal on the 15pc Sonia Kashuk brush set, which is regularly $39.99. I ended up paying around $32, which is a little over $2 a brush!
