MAC Cosmetics Recycling Program

January 13, 2009

Most MAC Eyeshadow fanatics know about the MAC Cosmetic Recycling Program! It’s such a happy, happy day when I discover that I’ve just emptied my sixth eye shadow container.

Six beautiful little empty pots! It's a Happy, Happy Day!

Six beautiful little empty pots! It's a Happy, Happy Day!

It’s simple. I return the six empties to any MAC counter and in exchange, I get to choose a free lipstick! I  also just ran out of both my MAC Select Moisture Cover Concealer and my MAC Select Sheer Loose Powder at the same time! Now, I had no choice but to go to the MAC Counter today!

BigSis just mentioned how much she loves the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. I’ve never tried it because I’ve been happy with my MAC Prep + Prime Eye. I might have to give the Urban Decay a try just to compare the two, since BigSis likes it so much!

I haven’t yet had a chance to mention the beautiful new MAC Eyeshadow color that Bo gave me for Christmas. It’s called Wintersky and it’s a gorgeous color. It’s amazing that she was able to choose a color that I didn’t already have. So, while I was at the  MAC counter, I purchased another Wintersky since it’s a limited edition shade. I also picked up a new color called French Cuff! Lucky for my wallet, I was in a huge rush when I ran into Macy’s so I couldn’t linger over all the lovely new shades! I’ll save that for another day.

It’s so much fun to go pick out a FREE lipstick; so, whatever you do, DO NOT throw away those MAC eyeshadow empties!

    Does this work for all empty mac containers? I have a bunch of empty containers from my powder.

    Hi Natasha,
    It works for all MAC primary containers, so it covers almost all of their product containers.

    You could take a look at:

    Thanks for the info ladies. I have 6 eye shadow empties and I did not know they take the blush contaners too. I’m off to buy more MAC makeup! Ubran Decay…it’s ok…Most of the stuff they have available is too shiney for my tastes.
