In my quest to be a full-fledged Frugalista, I’ve decided to recycle my make up. Trust, I’m not THAT into make up. I think it’s somewhat of a hassle. But now that I’m trying to spend my life without doling out cash, I am going to take M.A.C. cosmetics up on its recycling offer. If you use six containters worth of M.A.C. products and return them to the counter, the company gives you a free lipstick.
I scoured through my make up bag this weekend and found eight tubes of lip gloss/lipstick that I have used up. You know what that means for me? Fresh lipstick at no extra cost. Yay.
Here’s the info on the Back to M.A.C program, lifted from the website:
RECYCLING WITH BACK TO M·A·C
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 receive a free M·A·C Lipstick of your choice as our thanks to you.
Since 100% of the retail selling price of Viva Glam Lipsticks is provided to organizations that help people living with HIV/AIDS, these colours are excluded from this program.
