I have coupons from the magic coupon machine for $3/15 and $4/20 for beauty purchases. What is considered a "beauty" item at cvs? I would say definitely make up and nail polish. What about perfume? Olay facial care items? Shampoo? Body lotion/wash? The cashier wasn't sure which items would be included, and I didn't feel like playing with items at the register to see which would be accepted under the coupon.

Any ideas?

I would recommend using their definition of "beauty items" from the CVS Beauty Club (where you get $5 back for every $50 spent) -- this is the list from CVS.com of beauty items:

Qualifying Beauty purchases include items from the following categories: Cosmetics, Fragrances, Hair Accessories, Hair Appliances, Hair Care, Hair Color, Healthy Skin Care and Skin Care. Excludes items from Trial & Travel, gift cards and prescriptions.

A cashier told me that it is basically anything on that half of the store...
