CVS: 50-75% Off Makeup Clearance Event + More

1:58 PM MST
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

(That’s me… don’t I look flawless?! ;) )

I just want to give all of you CVS shoppers a heads-up about a BIG makeup clearance event that seems to be taking place in all CVS stores across the country! Keep your eyes peeled for the red 75% off stickers and yellow 50% off stickers (as pictured above) to snag some great savings on makeup products from a variety of different brands (such as Sally Hansen, Rimmel, Wet-n-Wild, Covergirl, Revlon, Maybelline and more!).

This would be a great time to snatch up inexpensive stocking stuffers, gift basket filler items, or simply to refresh your cosmetic supply!  Also, reader Denise received a $3 off 2 Sally Hansen products CVS store coupon from the Magic Coupon Machine, so be sure to scan  your card at the CVS Magic Coupon Machine!  Before you head out to the store, you may want to gather up one or more of the following coupons below…

*$1/1 any CoverGirl product coupon found in the 11/27 PG or 12/11 SS
*$1/1 Maybelline lip color coupon found in the 12/4 RP
*$2/1 Maybelline New York Face Product coupon found in the 11/6 RP
*$1/1 Maybelline New York Great Lash Lots Of Lashes coupon found here
*$1/1 L’Oreal Paris Eye Product coupon found in the 12/11 RP
*$1/1 L’Oreal Paris Eyeliner coupon found in the 10/23 RP (Expires 12/18!)
*FREE Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat when you buy Crackle Overcoat coupon found in the Dec. issue of All You mag.
*$1/1 Rimmel London Product coupon found in the 10/16 RP

Also, be sure to scan your CVS card at the Magic Coupon Machine as several of you are getting $5/1 ANY New ProNutrients Supplement by Centrum CVS store coupons, which will pair nicely with the gift card deal this week!  Also, I’ve heard that this coupon may be printing every day, so if you drive by CVS often you may want to scan your card daily!

Here’s how you can score a *HOT* deal…

Buy 3 Centrum Pro Nutrients 50 ct $9.99
Total = $29.97
*Note – this should still trigger the gift card even though you’re $0.03 shy of $30
Use 3 $7/1 Centrum Pro Nutrients Omega-3, Probiotic and Fruit & Veggie coupons found in the 12/11 SS
Or the $5/1 coupons found here or here
Plus, use the $5/1 CVS store coupon printing from the Magic Coupon Machine (may not print for everyon)
Pay as low as $3.97
Get back $10 gift card
Final cost FREE + $6.03 money maker!

*If your store is out of stock of the Centrum ProNutrients products, be sure to ask for a raincheck as those never expire.  What CVS store coupons are printing for you from the Magic Coupon Machine?! Please share! :)

(Thanks, Stephanie, The Model Couponer, Denise, and all you readers who emailed me!)

    I found TONS of clearance makeup at 75percent off last week

  • Shannon Schellenberg says:

    Colin, your comment above made me laugh! Thanks…I needed that!

  • Jo Ann says:

    At little off subject but I’m wondering if I have a manufacture coupon AND a CVS MCM coupon for the same product and both coupons put together are more than the item cost will I get the overage if I purchase other items in same transaction?

  • Sandy says:

    How much is the makeup ringing up?

  • Amy says:

    You might be able to get a rain check for the $9.99 price, but the spend $30 get $10 gift card deal states “no rainchecks” on the first page of the ad!

  • Margaret says:

    A great resource is…she has a list of all the shades/colors of makeup that are 50% or 75% off. At my CVS, nothing was stickered so the list on her site made it really easy to navigate. Plus, without the stickers it almost feels like an insiders sale, so nothing was picked over! Highly recommend checking out her post.

    • christina says:

      thanks for that info, just printed :)

    • Ronda says:

      I love the CVS 75% make-up. Had managers and employees tell me they did not have enough time to comb through the many sales and add the stickers….love it because I was able to find great make-up in stock. After many, many, many trips back and forth the scanner to check prices, I asked of the employees to loan me her portable scanner. I scanner away with the portable scanner. My picks were Pysicians Formula and Revlon.

      Made my way to the register. Purchased 11 75% off items. Found 3 Revlon Peelie’s and used them for 75% nail polish (money makers). I did not have any additional coupons.

      I provided my CVS 30% off print-out. Cashier said it won’t work on clearance items. I said o.k. – try scanning just to see if you don’t mind. Hip Hip Horray – it took! Final price $8.82 for 11 items (less than 1 original price) with a saving of $90.82.

      In the sale above I purchased the Physicians Formula Bamboo Brush (75%), took it home and tried it out. Loved it! Went back next day and purchased the remaining 3.

      Good luck and hope you find some gems in your CVS make-up sales.

  • shannon says:

    is the gift card promotion just one time this week ?

  • cathy says:

    Also look for Duracell 4 packs (aa, aaa, d, c, 8v) that are on sale for $2.99. I got 5 packs of AAA’s for $2.99 and I used four $1.00 off coupons from 12/11ss and one $.75 from 11/27pg. I paid $10.25 plus got a $5.00 ECB (for the $5 for $15 from duracell.)
    So, it was look $1.05 for a 4 pack of duracell batteries.

  • Pat says:

    Is the make-up clearance found in a bin or certain section or just where it regularly is placed on the shelves?

    • Victoria says:

      i was it on the regular shelves mixed in so youll have to take your time and look

    • Jessica says:

      I saw the makeup in its normal location just had 75% or 50% off stickers on it! :) Good deals even without coupons!! :)

      Oh the lipsmackers set of 3 glosses and balms comes out to around $1.25 each after the 75% off which is a great price for a little girl’s stocking stuffer!

  • Melissa says:

    My first thought after seeing the lady in the CVS ad is that I had reached a porn site by accident. Anybody else think she has that “look”?

  • axhilli says:

    For those who’s CVS are low on the ProNutrients, if your CVS only has 2 of the ProNutrients 60 ct in stock make sure to pick up 2 of the OneADay 60 count on sale for $7.99 they are bogo 50% and part of the gift card deal.

  • Aimee says:

    Oh my you ladies make me feel old. The woman in the ad is none other than Linda Evangalista, one of the original super models of the 80’s. She once famously claimed that she never got out of bed for less than $10,000.

  • kimberly says:

    I received the duralax coupon from the coupon machine it was $5 off of 20 count or higher. My Cbs had them on sale for $4.99. It was a great day for Cvs for me.

  • Beth says:

    My CVS just took the 3-$7 coupons and my $5 coupon from the magic coupon machine!!! So my total was $3.97 and I got my print out for $10 gift card as well!! Also, my CVS is not taking the make-up sale product from the shelfs so look for them in the aisles as well!

  • NL says:

    Just went to cvs. Got some great deals w/the75% and coups. Thank you!

  • Lisa says:

    I got 4 coupons from the machine yesterday…$1 off Merci’s finest assortment boxed chocolates, .50 off 2 Planters 1.5-6 oz or 2 Nabisco 1-3 oz items, $5 off any New Pronutrients Supplement by Centrum, $1 off any Kraft salad dressing.

    • guest24 says:

      Lisa, those were the exact macine coupons I got. Do you live in Houston?….. How funny. Most times the one’s folks get are really good, and mine are usually pitiful. So, glad someone gets the same ones I do. Thanks for posting.

  • Caryn F. says:

    I got a B1g1f Frosted Mini Wheats Bite Sized they are priced at 4.39 so 2.20 each not too bad I also had a $1 off 2 so I got it for 1.69 each. :)

  • eve says:

    I went to 4 CVS stores and could not find the Centrum probiotic variety 50 cnt.

  • Stella says:

    The best deals in my area seem to be on Revlon products. Anyone know of any coupons I can pair with the deal to save even more?

  • Andrea says:

    The Walmart Insert from a few weeks ago had a $1 Revlon coupon. I got a whole bunch of makeup from this sale!

  • Andrea says:

    If I get a raincheck for the Centrum, I won’t be able to use my coupon, right, if it’s expired?

  • keyla says:

  • josie says:

  • emily irwin says:

    it printed for me yesterday at CVS in Normal, IL. I didnt think it would work since I already had 3 manufacturer coupons but he scanned it and it didnt beep so it was awesome!!!

  • Kabby says:

    My CVS has a variety of makeup with 50 and 75% stickers on them….hanging in their usual spot on the wall. A worker was just finishing up the Rimmel products when I got there. Thank you for the tip…I went with a variety of makeup coupons…no knowing if any of them would work… I was able to use the coupons. NYC, Rimmel, Sally Hanson, and Physician Formula had variety of items for 75% off…..Loreal, Almay, Revlon had only a few 50% off….I scanned everything I had interest in. Lots of nail polishes included. Good luck!

    • guest says:

      did u get the sally hansen salon effects tht had a 75% stickers on them………they were priced around 2.49 nd i used $2off any sally hansen salon effects coupon…….i ended up paying $2 for 4 box when there usual around 9.99 i was happy :) also there was nail polish for around 79cents so i used the .50cents coupon found in the walrmart ad long time ago………i had a fun time this week at cvs got to score very expensive makeup for a very around couple cents or a dollar i might be going bck today to see the physician formula cause i didn’t get a chance to see it

  • Yvonne says:

    The CVS’s in my area (NJ) seem to all have sold out of the Probiotic Vitamins……sigh! I really wanted to use those $7 coupons!

  • Shauna says:

    Okay, not sure if it was just my eyes playing tricks or what. When I checked out with the $30 worth of stuff to get the giftcard, it printed out and looked like just $10 in ECB. The cashier knew I wanted the giftcard though so she didn’t hand it to me and just gave me the card I wanted and kept that part of me receipt. Could I have just gotten $10 back in ECB instead?

    • Rebeca says:

      Of course I could be wrong but they DO look like ECBs to the point that my cashier told me: here is your receipt, you got $10 ECBs. I responded: thats the gift card, can I have a CVS one? And she seemed surprised, double check my receipt and gave me the card. Lets hope thats what happened to you ;)

      • Kevin says:

        Rebecca, I am now confused (newbie to this ECB stuff) If you received $10 in ECB’s why did you ask for a CVS one? If the ECB is part of the receipt what is the “card”?

  • Korva says:

    I was bummed to see that the B1Go 50% off (Sally Hansen products) excludes clearance! Bummer!

  • Losingitagain says:

    Is the Centrum $7/1 MQ a regional coupon? I don’t seem to find it in my 12/11 SS (Boo Hoo me!)

  • Sandra says:

    I don’t see any scenarios that involve buying one of the Centrum ProNutrients per day and each day using the $5 CVS coupon and one $7/1 manufacturer coupon. Could you do this? If not someone please let me know.

  • Cheryl says:

    Graham, N. Carolina store says they have a district policy that only allows one like coupon per transaction so could not get the full benefit of the $5 CVS coupon because $9.99 – $7.00 leaves only $2.99 balance so coupon would have to be adjusted down. I don’t like these random situations while everyone else in the country is doing the deal!!! Frustrating.

  • edy says:

    Thanks! Collin for the inf and to everybody else too! Some cvs have new green mascara physicians there by perfumes or incaps those have 2dlrs off any physicians mascara get those for the 5 bucks back 9.99 but u can use those for clearance items peelies!

  • keyla says:

    Just wanted to comment about the centrum pronutrients probiotics, they are NOT part of the $9.99 vitamin sale they ranged up 19.97 for me and the cashier said that the ad only mentioned the 50 COUNT pills bottle and that the probiotics one were in 14 pocket counts so i desisted on these and asked for a rain check on the other pronutrients vitamins that they were out :(

  • mel says:

    The Centrum printed multiple times from the magic machine! I went on Sunday and scanned my card and the $5 Centrum q printed, but that store didn’t even have them. On Tuesday, I went to a different store and got another $5 Centrum q. Well that store was out. So today, I went to a 3rd store and bingo, out pops a 3rd $5 Centrum q!!! And I hit the jackpot b/c this store had a special display on an endcap with just the Centrum Pronutrients line. So armed with my 3 magic machine q’s and 3 $5 manuf qs, I paid a whopping $2.59 (which was just my local sales tax) and got a $10 GC!!

    • Jo-Ann says:

      Yep, I did the same deal, plus included the $2 Combos deal to absorb any overage. Thanks, Collin, for the heads up about the multiple $5 coupon prints from the coupon machine–wouldn’t have done the deal otherwise!

  • Tatia says:

    Today i went and got a 6 nailpolishes, 2 mascaras, 3 eyeshadows and 1 concealer ( and 4 glade freshners) for $4.32! saved $65! today was a good day!

    • Tatia says:

      for the mascara it was originally $8.99 and after sale it was $2.07 and there was a $2 peelie! i wasn’t sure if it would work but hey, im definetly going back for the other 10! great stocking stuffers for my daughters!

  • edy says:

    At my cvs they haven’t marked or put stickers on items on the 75% cosmetics yet! Manager said she has to do it hasn’t had time yet! I’m just going to grag a few items and see if they scan 75 off if not I will go to the one that’s marked all ready another cvs
