Now this is probably something most people know about. Especially people who wear MAC Cosmetics but a few people I have spoken to didn’t have a clue & was so happy to find out how to get a free MAC lipstick. Especially as they have been wearing MAC makeup for years.When you buy an item of makeup from MAC you might have noticed on the inside flap of the box it says Back To Mac. This means that you can collect any six empty MAC containers. So think lipstick tube, foundation bottle, concealer tube, anything like in my photo above. Take them back to any MAC counter & exchange them for a free lipstick. I’ve even been able to take minis back as I have a few mini lipsticks, although you would need to have two minis in place of one full size item.
However, since 100% of the selling price of VIVA GLAM Lipsticks and Lipglass is provided to organizations that help people living with HIV/AIDS, these are excluded from this program.
You used to be able to send them back in the post to MAC Cosmetics Online (Back to MAC), Constellation House, 3 Kite’s Croft Business Park, Fareham, PO14 4FL. I can’t find the online form any longer on the UK site, only the US site. It might be worth phoning customer services first before sending you items back as you also need to specify the shade you’d like.
I’ve almost got my six empties so a little trip to Selfridges is on the cards for me very soon so I can add another shade to my MAC lipstick collection. I also can’t wait to take a look at the Disney Aladdin Collection by MAC, it looks amazing online but I really want to see it in person before deciding which items I want.
If you’ve got any questions about the Back to Mac scheme then just leave me a comment below
