Some of the coupons listed below may go nicely with this week's sales, so take a moment to match them up accordingly.

ULTA TIP: Noteworthy deals valid now through 5/10 both in-store and online: Real Techniques Bold Metals collection 20% off and all Nyx cosmetics BOGO1/2OFF. Remember you can use this $3.50 off $10 coupon with these deals!

CVS shoppers: If you've been wanting to try the new CoverGirl Super Sizer Mascara, this week it's $5.99 and when you buy 1, you get $1 back in Extra Bucks (you can shave another $0.50 off with the printable CG mascara coupon here). Also, if you're a Maybelline Volum' Express mascara fan, all Volum' Express formulas are on sale this week for $5.99 each and there's still that printable $2 off Maybelline mascara coupon HERE. Even better? When you spend $15 on any Maybelline eye, lip, foundation, blush or concealers (includes Volum' Express mascaras) you get $5 back in Extra Bucks. Lastly, all Milani cosmetics are BOGO1/2OFF again this week, and also all Wet n Wild cosmetics are B2G1FREE. 

Rite Aid shoppers:  There are no +UP Rewards this week, since Rite Aid is transitioning to Plenti Points starting next week (more info here if you need it). This week all Physicians Formula foundation, powder, blush and bronzers are BOGOFREE, and all WnW $0.99 items are on sale for 3 for $2. Also, Batiste dry shampoo is BOGOFREE (this sale also includes Renpure and Samy haircare; you can mix and match). IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT VIDEO VALUES: I believe that, with the switch to Plenti Points, the Rite Aid Video Values coupon program has been discontinued. The link that used to take us to the Video Values listings now redirects to the Wellness+ page, and when you go to the main Video Values page, you get this. #RIPVideoValues.

Walgreens shoppers: This week you get $1 off Wet n Wild cosmetics with a regular retail price $2.99 and over (see new limited edition California Dreaming collection here, which is now popping up at Walgreens and part of this sale). The May Coupon Book is now available (free in stores). You can click HERE for a list of the coupons in this month's book (there are some nice makeup coupons this month, like $1 off L'Oreal eye cosmetics, $1 off Maybelline eyeshadow, etc.). 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. I miss the 40% off deals of New York Color. :(

  2. I found the new Wet n Wild summer collection at my local Walgreens last night but the sale price didn't come up when the $2.99+ items were scanned. I had to show them the flyers on the wall showing the sale price, as well as the upper right corner of the display that says $1 off items $2.99 and up, in order for them to adjust the price. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up in case this happens to them!

  3. Can we use the $1 off CG Lashblast mascara coupon ( on the new Super Sizer since it's part of the Lashblast line, or no?

    1. Ideally the coupon should work since Lashblast is on the package of the mascara. However, it does depend on the cashier/store policy. I have had cashiers tell me that I couldn't use a coupon because it wasn't the exact product pictured. I would suggest still try using the coupon. CVS, Target, and Walgreens would be the places I would use the coupon. I hope this helps. =]

  4. I just went to my local Rite Aid and got a Physicians Formula bronzer and highlighter BOGO free, and both had a $10 off coupon on the package. So basically I am getting each for 2.50. I believe there are coupons on the PF website also. Run, do not walk...
