CVS - Cosmetic Clearance of 50% to 75% Off..and Other Beauty News

Every year about this time, CVS offers a phenomenal clearance on cosmetics.  Some are 50% off.  And some are 75% off!  That's my kind of deal!!  I usually stock up on cosmetics to last me the year.  This year, I still have some left over from what I purchased last January.  So, I did not really need much other than mascara.  I lucked out and found Almay mascara in my color for 75% off.  I also picked up an Almay foundation and a Revlon blush.  Both were also 75% off.  I should be supplied enough for the year, unless, of course, a hot deal where makeup is almost FREE or it is FREE comes up during the year.  I had $7.00 in ECBS, so I used it towards my purchase. 

For (3) Almay mascara, (1) Almay foundation, and (1) Revlon blush, my total (without tax) was $6.23.  That's approximately $1.25 per item of good quality makeup!  And, I am good for the year!  With sales, I saved a total of $46.72!  That's an 88% SAVINGS!!!

When you visit your CVS, look through all the makeup aisles.  The 50% off stickers are yellow and the 75% off stickers are red.  They are mixed in with the regular priced makeup, so you have to look carefully.  Most stores are stocked well the first few days of the year.  

Remember, too, that whatever you purchase, the total (after sales & coupons) is added to your Beauty Club spending.  For every $50 worth of makeup you buy (it is accumulative), you receive $5 in ECBs.

Also, if you are lucky enough to hit the store at the right time, pick up the latest copy of Reinventing Beauty.  It usually has a tear-away sheet of coupons as well as some found throughout the magazine. There are some manufacturer coupons and some CVS coupons.  The magazine is published every quarter, which means one is due out soon!  These magazines are so hot that they disappear off the racks very quickly, so keep your eyes peeled.  I will try to post when they are out.

If you are in need of makeup or want to stock up at awesome prices, NOW is the time.  In the past, the 75% off products run out the first week of the year.  So, hurry!  

Happy Savings!!!
