Back to MAC: Vegas Volt Lipstick

March 16, 2010

I finally collected six empty MAC containers (it takes me forever) so I was able to Back to MAC for a new lipstick. My free pick? Vegas Volt! It is a gorgeous bright orange lipstick that really makes your lips pop. It’s a color I had been wanting for a while and it will be perfect for summer.

For those of you who are not aware of the Back to MAC program, here is a little info from the MAC Website:

“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 or M·A·C Cosmetics online, you’ll receive a free M·A·C lipstick of your choice as our thanks to you.”

Here are a few policies about the program I have come across:

  • You can return any MAC plastic/glass packaging: lipglass, eyeshadows (must be in tact with pan and label), brush cleanser, makeup remover, blush, eyeliner, lipsticks, fluidline, foundation (compacts or bottles), skincare packages (including wipes), etc.
  • Packages do not have to be completely empty (there can still be product left; even completely full)
  • The cardboard boxes and plastic tops (they come with Mineralize Skinfinishes) do not count
  • Eyeshadows that have been depotted (no pan or label) do not count
  • Eyeshadow refill pans only count with original label and magnet on back
  • MAC stores will Back to MAC for an eyeshadow, lipglass or a lipstick of your choice
  • MAC counters will only Back to MAC for a lipstick of your choice

Feel free to ask about any other concerns regarding the Back to MAC policy in a comment below, or you can always ask any sales asscoiate/ makeup artist at a MAC counter or store.
