Get Free Makeup From MAC By Returning Your Empty Containers

By Kristin Hunt

Want to save on makeup? There’s an easy way to score free lipstick that doesn’t involve sweepstakes or dance challenges. All you have to do is recycle with Back to MAC.

MAC is encouraging its customers to reduce waste with the Back to MAC recycling program, which has been kicking around for a few years now. Here’s how it works: first, collect six empty MAC product containers. MAC accepts "primary packaging," meaning the material that actually encases the product. Lipstick tubes, lash cases, blush compacts, eye shadow pots, foundation tubes and bottles, and skincare bottles all count. "Secondary packaging," such as the cardboard box your makeup came in, does not. 

Once you've sussed out your qualifying items, return them to a MAC store near you, or through MAC Cosmetics online. You’re now entitled to one free lipstick of your choice.
