The Weekly Drugstore Makeup Sales (New Ulta Freebies and More)

Apologies for getting this up so late but yesterday, right after my Sephora post, I had some massive internet issues at my house and spent all day on the phone with my cable company (ugh).

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 beauty bag sold out already

    1. Well that was fast! I double-checked it the moment before I published my blog post and it was still in stock! Ugh. Thanks so much for letting me know--just updated the listing!

  2. Are there ever good sales on nuance sold at cvs? I've been looking into her eye cream, but it's a bit pricey without some sort of sale.

    1. Yes! A few times a year, they will run 30% off sales on Nuance, and I think they've even done a BOGOFREE before. But more often, they will run BOGO1/2OFF sales. There's probably one right around the corner since I haven't seen one in a while. :)

    2. Thank you so much for the information! I will try to be patient and wait for a sale, thank you G!
