Back 2 M.A.C. Program

So most people don't know about this program that M.A.C. offers (I didn't! lol) Well it's called "Back 2 M.A.C." and this is what they have posted on their website... "Because we share your commitment to the environment, M·A·C accepts returns of its primary packaging through the Back to M·A·C Program. By returning six [6] M·A·C primary packaging containers to a M·A·C counter or M·A·C Cosmetics online, you’ll receive a free M·A·C lipstick of your choice as our thanks to you."

To some this may sound kinda cheap, like SIX containers for ONE lipstick? But if you think about it, If you're already buying the product and when your done with it you're just gonna toss it in the trash anyway. So why not get something in return for your "trash"? =) From what I've heard, seen and read you don't have to trade it for just lipstick.You can pick an eyeshadow, lip gloss, or their lip glasses (as long as what you pick isn't part of the viva la glam which 100% of the money from the purchases goes to M.A.C. AIDS fund.) But I believe to get the eyeshadow, etc you have to go to a M.A.C. STORE not counter. If you go to the counter they will only trade them for a lipstick, but then again I'm NOT sure. It can't hurt to ask. =) {I will when I go to a counter then post what they tell me}

Here's a list of products that qualify for the program: (taken from their site) Remember that they have to be EMPTY! lol
  • Eyeshadow Pan
  • Trio Compact
  • Quad Compact
  • Paint Tube
  • Cream Color Base
  • Pigment Jar
  • Mascara Tube
  • Liquid Liner Tube
  • Powder Compact
  • Blush Compact
  • Lipstick Tube
  • Lip Glass Tube
  • Foundation Bottle
  • Foundation Tube
  • Foundation Bottle Jar
I know that more of their products count towards the program too, like their skin care line & brush cleaner but for some reason they're not listed. Easy way to know if what you have counts is to check the inside flap for the Back 2 M.A.C. logo. It looks like this: If it has it then it counts! =) So with all that said... start saving up your used containers and trade it in for a goodie! It saves you about anywhere between 12-18 bucks I think. Now a days 12 or 18 bucks is 12 or 18 bucks! Right? Right! ;)

If you have a question you can also ask it here anonymously;
