okay, how can you not love this! i just did it for the first time (i'm a btm virgin). they were very helpful in helping me pick a great color and i ended up getting 3 instead of 1, those tricky tricky people! anyways loving my sophistico, charismatic, and viva glam V!
I don't know how this can get less than perfect in terms of scoring! I remember when I first started trying Mac products I redeemed my first set of empties for a Creme Liner since I didn't wear lipstick! But, since they were having problems with it, it's only a lipstick you can redeem for. I found I could only work the Glaze formulas so that kept me a bit limited in terms of redeeming for something I would use, but now they have the Lustres so I can finally have a bit more fun with the program!!
It's funny how this type of marketing actually works pretty good for them! One of my friends used to round up 6 of her barely used lipsticks so that she could get her FREE b2m lipstick. Then within a month or so, she would go out and rebuy one of those same lipsticks that she just tossed away for recycling! I at least finish the product before it goes back!
Ok, seriously I had no idea you could rate this until I saw it under the Newest Reviews. Of course, its all a marketing gimmick...but it works. I don't really buy MAC makeup anymore but I get their makeup (i.e. lip glass, shadows, etc.) as gifts on a fairly regular basis so I can get 6 easily. The thing is, I don't wear lipstick. So my mom gets a free lipstick every time. Like other reviewers, I wish you could get a lip gloss too, but oh well, its free, so who am I to complain. I strongly believe in recycling, so I think this is a great program! I hope they never discontinue it, otherwise no more free lipsticks for my mom!
Well a couple of years ago it used to be: return 3 containers and get a free lipstick...a few weeks ago I discovered this number has been upped to 6. It's a good program and all, but I just wish it were a lip gloss or something as I am not a big lipstick fan.
LOVE b2m! Recently just got 6 free lipsticks. Very thoughtful of MAC. And the free lipstick doesn't hurt! I just wish you could get any lip product, not just a lipstick. But this is still an amazing idea.
MAC's evil marketing plan has worked! Because now I, a non-lipstick type of girl, am now quite enamoured with the MAC lustre range. I am even planning to BUY the next two limited edition lustres because I have not enough B2M items yet. Damn you, MAC, damn you!
I'm not all rants and raves - I've got practical advice too. You may in fact be able to return pro eye shadow pans for recycling. My local pro store has made a point of telling me you could the last two times I bought pro pan shadow. They have also accepted the regular shadow containers with the pan missing from depotting. continued >>
I love this idea.
Just got 2 free lipsticks brilliant!
Great idea! I just got a lipstick of my choice. Lifespan of makeup products; powder including eyeshadow 2-3 years, lipstick 1-2 years. I can not use up makeup products completely. So this works for me.
So amazing. MAC has wonderful policies and this is one of them. I only wish you could also get lipglass or eyeshadow. (Eyeshadow is actually cheaper than lipstick), but hey, free product is free product, and its so great MAC promotes recycling so much.
Why is this being rated? It is so fabulous I can't imagine anyone disliking it! I just did my very first B2M and got Culturebloom and Fresh Buzz (great lipsticks!). Depotting isn't very pleasent though haha. But that's another review.
