Back to M.A.C Program


Do you love freebies as much as being environmentally conscious? It's easy to rack up several products empties only for them to end up in the bin, but more beauty brands are becoming more eco-conscious such as Body Shop, Benefit, Kiehl's, Lush, Origins and Garnier to name a few, to exchange all your empty products for a reward. 

The Back to M.A.C scheme has been around for a while, you can bring six old casings in exchange for a free lipstick of your choice (except the Viva Glam or one of their Limited Edition lipsticks) to any of their stores, counters or through the mail (their website will be able to tell you more information on the latter).

"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, you’ll receive a free M·A·C lipstick of your choice (excludes Viva Glam Lipstick and Limited Edition Lipstick) as our thanks to you. Please note, Lipsticks provided at no charge cannot be returned or exchanged".

The website also details items that are not accepted for the program such as sample containers, travel sizes, cosmetic applicators and tools, bulk wipes, refill pans for the Pro Palette, blotting sheets and limited edition products. Sometimes they will deny your exchange if you have depot your singular eyeshadow pots because it does not contain the metal pan, however, if you make a bit of a fuss and inform them that others and yourself have done it previously and the exchanged has worked they should still give you your free lipstick.

However, American or M.A.C Select users can benefit from the Back to M.A.C Extended program, and exchange their 6 containers for a free lipstick, eyeshadow or lip gloss as well. They also do not have to wait to finish a total of 6 containers, instead, members of the program can use the Back to M.A.C tracker to bring them in one by one until they have a total of 6. We definitely need to have this system here in the U.K.
