Ever wish you could trade in your old makeup for brand new makeup? Well guess what beauties? Wish granted! You can do your part to save the planet AND get free makeup from MAC Cosmetics! Yes… I said Free! It’s all possible through the Back to MAC Program.
The Back to MAC Program has been around for a few years but has recently gained a whole new (and much larger) audience thanks to Instagram.
Here’s how the Back to MAC Recycling Program works.
First you need to sign up for the MAC Lover Loyalty Program. It’s free to join and you earn points every time you purchase MAC Cosmetics. To sign up, visit a MAC Store or MAC Counter in a department store. You can also sign up online Here. You’ll need to create an account first, then sign in and click on “MAC LOVER”.
Next, it’s time to start saving your used containers. Most MAC products are considered qualified containers. They include blush compacts, eyeshadow pots, foundation bottles, lipstick tubes, and more. Once you have six of them, return the containers to any MAC counter, and you walk away with free makeup. Customers returning six containers receive a free lipstick, lipglass, or eyeshadow.
To make participating in the program easier, MAC Lover members can return containers as you go. This means you can return, one, two or more containers to a MAC Cosmetics Store or Counter and they will track them until you reach six and qualify for a complimentary makeup product.
Yay! Not sure about you but I’m cashing mine in for a Velvet Teddy Lipstick, my all time favorite shade from MAC! Their Pro Longwear Paint Pots are seriously good too and can double as an eyeshadow and an eye primer!
If you’re wondering what happens to the products that are returned through this program, they get recycled by the retailer.
So, save your empty lipstick tubes & tins. You’ll be saving money on your next MAC purchase, scoring free makeup and reducing your carbon footprint.
Kudos to MAC Cosmetics for making a difference!
