Not alot of people know about MAC’s “Back 2 Mac” Recycle Program….but it’s pretty much how I’ve built up my eyeshadow and lipglass collection.Because MAC has a commitment to the environment, for every 6 glass or plastic containers you turn in to any MAC counter, you get a FREE eyeshadow, lipglass, or lipstick. Yes, I said “FREE.”

The Eye ShadowLipglass, and  Lipstick all retail for $14.50/each; so you can see why getting a free item of your choice for just hanging onto your old containers is such a good deal.

Now, keep in mind…..if you can’t make it into a store, the website only lists that you are able to redeem containers for a lipstick.  However; I know the program has changed in recent history, and I can personally attest to the fact that if you visit one of their locations you are able to get any of the 3 I mentioned.

So….hang on to those “empties” and nab them from your friends and family who don’t have the patience to recycle and you’ll be on your way to a rainbow of colors to try with the changing seasons in no time!

    Hey Deane, thanks for stopping by….I’m an avid Mac user myself and have to stop myself from putting my makeup in other containers before their even done, just so I can recycle :) getting new stuff….it’s addictive.
