Lunchbreak shopping: Mini CVS beauty haul

Yesterday, I made a trip over to CVS to see what was left from the annual beauty clearance sale.  Last year, I pretty much made out like a bandit, but this year, not so much.  There weren't many items left, and I don't know if it was because everything was picked over or they just didn't have that many items marked down to begin with.  I didn't leave the beauty aisle empty handed though.  Check out what I walked away with:

NYX glitter cream palettes $2.49 each (with CVS card, reg. $4.99).  I was surprised to see that CVS was carrying NYX products because I haven't heard any talks about it.  I'm not sure if this was a promo price or if these were on clearance, but $2.49 is a steal!


NYC "White Lights Glitter" nail color and "Sheer Red" lipstick $0.99 each.  I had a $1.00 off coupon from this months All You Magazine, making both of these just $0.98!

Although there weren't a lot of items on clearance, I managed to find some L'Oreal HIP duos (in Mischief and Flashy) for 75% off.  They ended up being $2.09 each, but since I had two $1 off L'oreal coupons (you can get them here, click on "special savings and offers",but you must register your email address), that brought them down to $1.09 each.

Now here's the fun part.  I  had $8 in Extra Care Bucks to work with, plus my 10% off "Beauty Pass" from the newly launched CVS ExtraCare Beauty Club (upon enrollment, you get a 10% off coupon to use on beauty items. Sign up here).  Add in my other personal items that I bought for $5.49, and I ended up only spending $5.36 out of pocket.  


Did you find any good stuff from CVS's beauty clearance?

That is some serious savings! Good work! You got some good stuff.

I unfortunately don't have a CVS near me so I can't partake in the deals.

@aki: i haven't heard of nyx coming to cvs either, but i wonder if they're going to have more cosmetics from nyx in the future

Wow, you really scored! I always forget about CVS (I have way more Duane Reade locations near me) but I need to stop in more often for deals like this. And thanks for the heads up on the CVS beauty card!

I literally JUST left CVS, then came home and read your post. Everything I bought (except one item) was 75% off...Wish I would have seen your post earlier for the extra $1 off.

Thanks for this post!!! I just went to CVS and picked up so many items on sale!!! I even found Loreal paint pods 75% off! It was amazing! My savings were over $100, I spent $55 but I had some other items in there...but either way it was great...I just won't be going makeup shopping for some time! It just really sucks that I haven't seen any NYX products in CVS where I live :(
