Back To MAC Via Mail - An Update

Quite a while ago I wrote a post about the Back To  MAC scheme by mail, well this is the updated version :)

Although I've fallen a little bit out of love with MAC over the last few years, they're still a great brand with a fabulous range of innovative, quality products, and the Back To MAC scheme is just the icing on the cake. For those of you who aren't aware  Back To MAC is basically a way of rewarding customer loyalty, and helping the environment at the same time.

All you do is take 6 MAC empties (they don't have to be empty) to your nearest MAC counter and exchange them for a full sized lipstick. The only requirements are that the empties must be from full sized products so no minis, samples, or accessories, and your free lipstick must be from the permanent, main line, so you can't get for example a Viva Glam, a Pro Longwear Lipstick, a Sheen Supreme Lipstick,  or a Mineralize Rich Lipstick, and it goes without saying that you can't get anything in special packaging.

What if you don't live near to a MAC counter though, then what happens? and what happens if your counter won't take depotted packaging, i.e. pots without their metal pans? Well as I posted about many moons ago there is a solution. If your in the UK you can post your empties to MAC so they can exchange them for a brand new lipstick.

You can now post up to 24 empties at anyone time - all you need to do is enclose a letter with your name and address, and a list of of the lipsticks that you would like. I've always received my first choices but they do advise that you give them a few options just in case.

The address is that same as before but the contact has changed :)

It normally takes a few weeks for your lipsticks to be dispatched but if you have any queries customer services on the MAC website should be able to help.

I'm just about at my 6 empties, so my only problem now is which lipstick to choose - decisions, decisions x I hope this post was helpful x Thanks for reading x

  1. I haven't heard about the mailing system before! Perhaps we don't have it in Australia, but I do think the essence of the exchange is great in itself. I suppose my only problem is that the few MAC lipsticks I have are limited edition -- and I'm a hoarder, so I'm not sure that I'll want to let go of the pretty packaging!
