The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sale Wrap-Up (10/11 - 10/17)

Keep reading for a look at the best drugstore beauty deals of the week...

Welcome to the new Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sale Wrap-Up! I took all of your feedback to heart and, as you can see, there have been some major changes since my last wrap-up. For starters, I have made things a lot more streamlined, and I have once again given Ulta its own section (below). 
The new wrap-up is all about highlights. I want you to be able to quickly scan this post at the beginning of each week and know exactly which retailers have the best makeup deals for that week. You can find the direct link to this wrap-up right on the top menu of this blog, for easy access.
No longer am I listing highlights for things like haircare, skincare, or bath and body, because the overwhelming majority of you who read this weekly post have told me that you come here for makeup sale info. (But if you're like me, and would still like to know about skincare, haircare, and bath/body deals, I will always include a link to the current ad in each listing, so you can easily see those deals for yourself.)
Moving forward, I hope this weekly post gives you a quick and easy way to know what's going on in the world of drugstore makeup each week and, as always, if you have any suggestions or input, I'd love to hear from you in the comments below!
The following Ulta highlights are valid in-store and online now through 10/24 unless otherwise noted. View current Ulta ad HERE.

Did I miss any hot makeup deals this week? If so, please leave a comment below and fill us in (and thanks in advance!),


  1. The Revlon sale comes a week after my Revlon order :(

  2. Thanks, G! Might pick up a Revlon Super Lustrous at CVS this week.

    1. You're so welcome. I was doing the math on that deal myself! Since the limit is six, that breaks down to $17.94 for six tubes of lipstick (after you deduct the $24 in Extra Bucks you'll be getting back). But the question is, do I need six new tubes is lipstick? Lol!

  3. I just ordered 2 NYX Suede lippies from ULTA 2 weeks ago (full price) and now they are $3.99! The sale price is so good I am going to return them (both are unused and wrapped) and repurchase.

    1. As I mentioned, this is only in store and only at select locations, so please be sure to call your local store first to see if they're participating! I would hate to see you return them only to have to repurchase at the same price. Hope the sale is going on in your area! :)

  4. I think Loreal is BOGO at Ulta as well. I don't know if it is an in store deal only!

    1. Nope, just a regular BOGO1/2OFF sale.

    2. Oh okay. So will you be listing all the current deals or just certain ones. Just wondering because there are more deals on the Ulta website (Covergirl, Loreal, Maybelline).

    3. I'm so sorry if that wasn't clear! It's kind of confusing so I'd be happy to explain. This post is just for Ulta highlights. In other words, things that are extra special each week at Ulta. Their BOGO1/2OFF deals are very common, so I'll only post about those if it's a brand like NYX, which doesn't tend to go on sale as frequently as, say, Maybelline or L'Oreal, which is BOGO1/2OFF all the time both at Ulta and the drugstores.

      This post would be a mile long if I listed ALL the Ulta deals each week, so that's why I'm sticking to highlights. Also, I include the link to the Ulta ad in my listing (so you can see all the deals for yourself).

      I will post ALL of the makeup deals at CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens each week though, because it's never a really huge list. I'm just not posting the weekly drugstore deals for things like haircare, skincare and bath care anymore, because it seems like most aren't interested in that. But I'm still including a link to each weekly ad here, so you can see those for yourself.

      Hope that makes sense, and please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!! :)

  5. Bogo free revlon at ulta? Is it in store only?

    1. My apologies! It's actually B2G1FREE, and it's online and in-store. Sorry about that!!

  6. Hey the deal at ulta for Revlon and almay is buy two get one free not bogo

    1. Thanks so much, Larissa. I just caught that and updated! :)

  7. Thanks so much for doing this every week! You are my go-to source for beauty deal news!

    1. Thank YOU, Erika, for the kind words. I am so grateful that I can help--thank you so much for reading! xo

  8. Loving the new streamlined drugstore makeup sale list, G! :)

    1. Yay!!! Thank you so much, Jennifer! xo

  9. Thanks for all your hard work G, as a busy mom, I just rely on your blog for all the deals. I am such a skincare junkie, can you please also list those deals that are extra special? TIA

  10. So glad I found this list! (through Jenluvsreviews I believe) thank u for your hard work putting all this together!
