Last week I cut loads of my lipsticks to get my pro kit organised. Plus I have been collecting my brush cleaner empty bottles to for recycling. If you didn’t already know there is a back to Mac programme that is all about being environmentally friendly. After cutting a load of my Mac lipsticks I remembered the program so took myself off to the Waterfront store.
The program is all about recycling but getting something back in return to incentivise you. The good thing is there is a lot of choice so you need to remember to keep everything once it is finished. The choice is pretty big for what you can return. From a brush cleaner bottle, empty lipstick, blush or eyeshadow container, a foundation bottle or empty skincare bottle. Most people aren’t aware of this program so as well as being environmentally being friendly you get free makeup. Its definitely a win win situation. Being a makeup artist means investing in lots of makeup so its a great way to add a little something extra to your kit.
Sadly there is no info on the South African website about the program. I did find the info on the US site which I linked at the top of the post. So if you have some empties you need to get yourself to one of the stand alone Mac stores to get your lipsticks. You cna’t keep the packaging or return the lipsticks so remember to choose wisely.
I did struggle a bit on what to choose as I have so many shades for my pro kit. So I decided reather keep these gorgeous lipsticks for my personal stash that’s just for me. From left to right the shades are Up the Amp, Relentlessly Red (matte) and Tropic Tonic (matte). When it comes to lipstick I am all about the matt and love bold shades.
