Walgreens: It’s Time To LOOK UP!!!

Every year at this time, I eagerly await to show you the beginnings of Walgreen’s gift boxes. The high up shelves have been in place for about 2 or so week, so I knew the products were on the way. I saw this yesterday at one of my local Walgreen’s…

I figure if you read beauty blogs, you want to know what is coming up! How about more elf beauty books!…

These must be a hit since they had so many out this year. I’m a collector! These two will be coming home with me and going to my elf beauty book shelf.

The Color Workshop has collections that have a bit of everything in them. I was impressed with the shadow color choices available…

And elf has several $3 gift boxes which I think make excellent add-ons to Secret Santa gifts or just as stocking stuffers…

This Wet ‘n Wild Fergie collection endcap subtly hints at being for the Holidays but it doesn’t have any holiday designs on it. Either way, I’m reading several reviews on these items and, will be getting that huge makeup box very soon. Last year, I didn’t wait and bought the makeup box at full price only a couple of weeks later to have to go to half price. So, I’m going to hold out…just a bit…not much longer! I did purchase the elf beauty books that you see at the base of this display and will be reviewing those here soon…

Is anyone else collecting the elf beauty books? I’ve bought one Christmas gift, so far? How are you coming along?


  • You know, I never even noticed the beauty gift sets at Walgreens? Clearly, I do not pay attention because I see some great stuff, especially for my nieces.

    • I’m glad you found some new avenues for gifts!

  • Aleya Bamdad

    I still haven’t been to a Walgreens. They have soe great beauty products though.

    • Sounds like you need to plan a roadtrip, Doll!

  • erikatheicyone

    I love this time of year. The treasure trove of goodies on the top is a wonder. And I have soooo many rewards points stashed away… Heh! Heh!

    • I can’t lie…I love stores during the Holidays. We just won’t talk about the people….

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    I noticed my local CVS had cleaned out the top shelves where they usually have their LEs, most like to stock the Holiday sets. I’ve gotta head to the big Walgreens and see what they’ve got!

    • You should do a post on what you find at CVS. We don’t have those stores in Colorado. I’d be interested to see what they have.

  • I wish my local Walgreens made it easy to find the LE collections

    • They don’t!? That’s not fair to the customers. Shame on them!!

  • Us short people get no respect! The Walgreen’s closet to me doesn’t get all the special stuff πŸ™

    • Have you ever tried ordering online with Walgreen’s? I haven’t but I do know they have some things on there that some stores don’t carry. That’s not a very good store if they don’t get special stuff…no fair!!

  • I wish all those elf gift boxes would be available here in UK too, but often some of them are from US only πŸ™

    • This is true. You can look for someone that is statewide that is willing to do product trades.

  • cindyprimebeauty

    My Walgreen’s doesn’t get all the collections.

    • I wonder why. These are huge money-makers for stores.

  • Can’t wait to hunt down the elf goodies

  • FabZilla_Kath

    How sad it is that I don’t have Walgreens near me. Bring out the kleenex, major tears here πŸ™‚

  • I love this time of the year! Off to Walgreens tomorrow.

  • NICE! My Walgreen’s never has anything LE for WnW and IDK WHY. =( I’m still going to look, of course lol

    • That’s not a good Walgreen’s, then!!!

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    YES!! I cannot wait!

    • I hope you get some nice things!

  • SO SO SO much good stuff. Love this time of year.

    • I don’t think all of it is out yet either. There usually is more Profusion products. I got some on clearance after the holidays and they were actually rather nice!!!

  • Betzy Carmona

    I absolutely love shopping during the holidays

    • I’m always excited to see holiday collections and what the stores’ themes will be.

  • Beauty shopping right before the holiday season is the best time. So many cool gift sets and kits.

    • I’m told there are going to be Flower gift sets (Walmart brand by Drew Barrymore) this year!!

  • I love all the holiday makeup gift sets! That Fergie one looks really cool

    • I just wish the palettes would not be cream. I only tried them once and they are terrible. But, the kit….it’s mine!!!

  • BTBAshley

    We were checking out the upper shelves the other day as they were loaded with all kinds of toys. I’m admittedly not a fan of the elf beauty books but I love to collect the seasonal palettes. I might grab a few this year to try.

    • I’m totally fascinated by them. They would make cute presents.

  • I haven’t gotten into collecting any of the e.l.f books…but I do have their product! And yes…I have totally started my christmas shopping!
