The info below 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 may vary from region to region. Also, you may live in an area that does not participate in national sales. If you do not see these sales in your area, check with your local store manager for more details.
  • QUESTION FOR CVS SHOPPERS: I meant to do a post about the semi-annual CVS beauty clearance sale that's been happening for the past few weeks (since mid-December, I believe). But now I'm afraid it's too late to post a master list. If you are still seeing makeup markdowns at your CVS and/or you would like me to post a list, please comment below and let me know. Thanks!

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 goodie bag from ulta is only free with 70$ skincare purchase :)

    1. Aaah, thank you for pointing that out! Will update my listing! xoxo

  2. Hello, G. You're right about CVS, that they started clearancing products last month but many things are still available because they're just now hitting 75% off. I've seen the following at my store and on the CVS groups I follow on FB:

    ELF Cosmetics
    Carol's Daughter
    Loreal Revitalift Serum
    Loreal Age Perfect Facial Oil
    Aussie 3 Minute Miracle
    Nexxus Hair Care
    Tresemme Styling
    Dove Quench
    OXG Hair Care
    Pantene Classic Clean
    EOS Holiday Lip Balms
    Loreal Advanced HairCare
    Shea Moisture

    I would suggest to your subscribers to RUN, not WALK if they're interested in any of these products. I've seen countless pics on FB where shoppers have done major hauls with these great deals. My neighborhood store's manager isn't sure about if and when they'll be doing an actual cosmetic reset.

    1. Wow, thank you so much, Charlana, for taking the time to make a list for us! I'm wondering if it's worth a post? I went to my local CVS and everything was already wiped out, so I'm not sure most of us can even get these deals at this point now that they're 75% off? Hum...

  3. G, I wouldn't bother making a master list. It is too much work for you right now especially with you getting back into the swing of things. That being said, I think most of us here already know about the sale. In my town, they just rebuilt our Cvs so it's only been open a month. I did see a few items here and there marked down but wondered to myself if they moved everything since they revamped their makeup section. I'm quite sure there were things they RTV'ed since they were moving and didn't want to take everything with them. Besides, when the old one shut down they did have a fair amount at 50% off then. Or you could just do an open post with us commenting on what we've found. Totally up to you but don't feel pressure to make a master list. ( Just my thoughts).

  4. How do you get 3 gifts with purchase on the $40 buxom purchase? It's only letting me add the 1 mini in Dolly?

  5. Where do you see three free gifts with $40 buxom purchase at ulta? Only the free mini lip polish with $30 applied to my cart when I added the $45 lip kit.

  6. Huh. I didn't even realize the CVS sale was going on. I've seen no sign of it at any of the three near my house. Of course I was dealing with a bout of bronchitis for a good part of December, so maybe it just passed me by while I was recovering?

  7. Target had Maybelline BB Creams marked down to $2 and change (Darker shades)
    and all but Purple Seductia from the Sonia Kashuk fragrances marked as low as $2 and change!
