    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. G, just like you predicted, tons of clearance on, including the Barbie set you covered a while ago, the Covergirl matte BB cream, L'Oreal clay masks, elf, NYX, Yes To, OPI, Physicians Forumla, DermaBlend, etc.

    2. Hey G, I sent you emails yesterday and today of new Sinful Colors and Jordana collections and more at my local Walgreens. I hope you got them and can use some of the info/images. It's, correct? Anyway, thanks for all that you do!

    3. It would be great if you could do a post of your favorite Ulta filler items. Its hard for me to get to 15.00 in store, especially when combined with a b1g1 50% off sale. I got 2 of the new NYX color illuminating sticks in store and it came to 11.98. I was roaming around trying to find something for 3.02. I finally found a bag of 50 large cotton rounds for 3.49. I remember when the coupons used to work on clearance items, no more. My Ulta had Zoya naked in the tan color for 2.97.

    4. Thank you very much for your weekly posting!

      For anyone wanting to try the new L'Oreal mud masks there are two coupons for this product: $2 off from Target and $2 off from manufacture. My understanding is that Target lets customers use one manufacture and one target coupon for the same product. :D
