The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (1/18 - 1/24)

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.


Some of the coupons listed below may go nicely with this week's sales, so take a moment to match them up accordingly.
  • Click here for printable beauty coupons.
  • Click here for printable beauty coupons.
  • Click here for printable beauty coupons (redeemable only at Target). For additional Target coupons, sign up for Target Cartwheel. 


ULTA TIP: The Love Your Skin Event for 2015 is going on now through 1/24. Click HERE for details. 

CVS shoppers: There is a sale on just about every drugstore makeup brand this week (Nyx, Maybelline, Milani, Wet n Wild, Revlon, L'Oreal, Sally Hansen and more), but some of the offers are little confusing, so be sure to read my listing below for details. The CVS Beauty Clearance Sale is STILL lingering on (the master list is HERE, and be sure to check the comments section of the master list for newer sightings).

Rite Aid shoppers: If you've spotted the new-for-2015 Physicians Formula products at your Rite Aid stores lately, this is the week to try a few of them. When you spend $15 on any PF products this week, you'll get $10 back in +UP Rewards. Since the limit is 2 on this offer, you can take that $10+UP the day after your first purchase and go back and use it toward ANOTHER $15 PF purchase and receive an additional $10+UP. You can save even more if the products you're purchasing have $$ off instant peelie coupons on the boxes (remember that Rite Aid deducts coupons AFTER you have reached the rewards threshold, not before). And just a reminder that all NYC cosmetics have been 50% off at Rite Aid for the past several weeks--several of you have told me that you've heard that Rite Aid will no longer be selling NYC, so you may want to stock up on what's remaining at your store if you don't have any other retailers locally that carry NYC. The Video Values coupons for January are still available here--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 week select Wet n Wild cosmetics are BOGO1/2OFF. According to the Walgreens website, this sale includes select Fergie products too, but I do not know if it includes the new 2015 Fergie products, so be sure to ask in-store if you don't see tags on the display. Shea Moisture products are BOGOFREE again this week and there's a freebie on a Freeman Bare Foot balm (details below). Also, I've heard from several of you who have seen clearance tags in the makeup aisle this week, so it looks like more brands/products have been added to the seasonal clearance orange-tag frenzy. Be sure to scan the makeup aisle this week for those tags! The January Coupon Book is still available (free and available in stores) and you can click HERE for the full listing of coupons in this month's book (don't forget that you can use those coupons on clearance items and also 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. You're amazing for doing this! It can't be easy so the effort is very much appreciated-THANK AND BLESS YOU! XOXOXO

  2. Hi, I just came back from CVS. I got an amazing deal for Milani. Here is the breakdown:

    Buy one get one half off PLUS spend 15$ and get 5$ extra care rewards. When i scanned my rewards card, i got 1$ off extra care, and also 3$ off on 10$ worth milani cosmetics.

    Did 2 transactions and used the first extra care 5$ (spend 15$ and get 5$ extra care) on the second transaction. Got 2 foiled quads, 2 matte blushes, 2 matte lipsticks for a total of 26$ including tax
    Hope this helps

  3. i got two of the new w&w fergie products yesterday and they didn't ring up as a bogo but i asked since the regular display said it and she gave me the discount. My paper also had a 50 cent wet and wild coupon in it yesterday.

  4. The CVS deal to get $5 extra bucks after spending $15 resets each week that the sale is going! So even though the limit is 2 per household, just wait until Sunday of the next week and you can get more $$$. I realized this yesterday after I was surprised with my third $5!!
