Target Tip: I've been getting lots of great tips this week about various mascara two-packs on clearance at Target right now. Check out this pic and this pic submitted by some lovely readers, to get an idea of what you might find at your local Target right now (and don't forget to scan at the red scanner if you don't see clearance stickers, because you never know if the price might be reduced in the system!).

CVS shoppers: Some of you have told me that you've recently spotted the Milani limited edition Amore Matte Lip Cremes at CVS (thanks so much for those tips--I was told previously that these were exclusive to Walgreens, which is apparently not the case since I've also heard from readers who have spotted these at regional retailers like Fred Meyer in the Pacific Northwest). I've also heard that the lip cremes are going to be available at additional CVS and Walgreens stores come September, so if you haven't found them yet, don't give up hope. As for this week's sales, all Wet n Wild cosmetics with a regular retail price of $1.99 are on sale for $0.99 each, and there's a nice hand/body lotion coupon this week too (see details below).

Rite Aid shoppers: 40% off all Physicians Formula foundation, powder, concealer, blush and bronzers this week, and all Revlon nail polishes are 2/$5 with very few exclusions (details below). There's a good deal on Sally Hansen this week: when you spend $20 on any Sally Hansen nail products, bleach, hair removers or wax, you get get 1000 points. That's $10 store credit, so that's basically 50% off. And the limit is 2 on this offer so if you spend $40 you'll get 2000 points on your card ($20 store credit). Also, there are LOTS of BOGOFREE haircare deals this week (details below). Don't forget to check THIS LINK to some in-store and online beauty coupons that change weekly; try to check that link every time you view this post for new offers (some of these go quickly).

Walgreens shoppers: Thanks to several of you for letting me know that Nonie Creme Colour Prevails cosmetics are 20% off this month (in-store and online). If you're new to this brand, you can check out my reviews HEREThe August Coupon Book (free in stores) is still available. Click HERE for a list of the coupons in this month's book. Don't forget that you can use those coupons on clearance items and also stack them with any manufacturer's coupons you may have, for even more savings.
