Hey guys! So as you might have seen, I did a little introductory post about weekly posts I plan on doing from now on, but here I’ll go a bit more in depth about it all.
So, I love shopping for good deals. I usually don’t pay full price for any of my makeup unless I have to (like if it’s a product I need but most likely won’t go on sale any time soon). I am very thrifty when it comes to my makeup, and I would like to start spreading my thrifty wisdom onto you all! So, here we are.
Firstly, let me start off by elaborating on something that I touched on in my last post. For the most part, Walmart is your best bet for the best prices on drugstore brand makeup. Walmart has such lower prices because they buy in massive bulk from the companies, which lowers the price to buy for them, which they then pass their savings over to the customers. Not only that, but CVS and Rite Aids and the like are all convenience stores. They are there for your convenience. That means they can afford to jack up the prices some because people will still buy it, because it’s more convenient than having to track to a Walmart or other mass retailer. So, like I said, Walmart is the place to go for lower priced drugstore makeup.
Even with the common Buy One Get One 50% Off deals at drugstores, Walmart is (((usually))) the cheaper option. For example, a Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick at Rite Aid is 7.99. Get two of those on a BOGO50 sale and your total comes to $11.98. At Walmart on the other hand, the same ColorSensational Lipstick is just $5.50 a piece. Two of those come to $11, which is still cheaper than the drugstore. Not a huge difference, no, but still not anything to run to the drugstore to snag up.
So, now that that explanation is done, I’ll just say that I won’t be covering the BOGO50 sales here, unless they are actually worth making a fuss over. I know that some people don’t shop at Walmart, so I’m not trying to exclude you guys! It’s just that I’m looking for the best and cheapest deals, and I don’t want to put anything more than that out there!
Now that that’s out of the way, I’ll talk about what I will be talking about. Clearance finds at various places (since usually items on clearance at one location of a store is probably on clearance at another location of a store), finds at Burlington or Ross or the like (because again, if it’s on sale at one, it’s probably on sale at others), special weekly sales, or any miscellaneous finds that I come across! I’ll try to post updates throughout the week if I happen to find any, so if you enjoy this type of post and want to be on the lookout for yourself, try to check back! Also, I should mention that these posts are going to be American-centric!! Some may apply to other countries depending on the stores there, but anything that I find or weekly sale I talk about is specifically ones that I find in my area of America.

*There are a few skin care items that I left out, just because I try to keep my focus primarily on cosmetics. The days with asterisks are days I left something out.
Wow, this is an exciting week! Usually there aren’t this many deals, but looks like we’re in luck this week! What deals are you most excited for? I can always expand my WNW eyeshadow collection so I’m so there for that. Also, hoping to get my hand on some of those Stila lip creams and one specific Butter London lipstick!
