MAC is definitely up there as one of our all-time favorite beauty brands, but not just because they make great makeup. MAC has awesome philanthropic programs that focus on four social initiatives: MAC Cruelty-Free Beauty, Back-to-MAC Recycling, MAC Kids Helping Kids and the MAC AIDS Fund.
One thing you probably don’t know about the Back-to-MAC program is that by participating in it, you can get a free lipstick. Yes, really. According to maccosmetics.com, here’s how it works:
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  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. Please note, Lipsticks provided at no charge cannot be returned or exchanged. M·A·C Select Back-to-M·A·C Expanded is only available in stores at this time.
It’s that easy! All you have to do is return six used MAC makeup containers to a store and you can pick out a lipstick free of charge. Helping the environment with beauty perks? It doesn’t get any better than that.
