Yes, it's free - but really annoying that they have specific rules for counters and stores. If you can trade in for lipstick, lipglass or eyeshadow at the free standing stores, you should be able to trade for them at counters. It isn't fair that people who don't live near a store have to trade for lipstick. I don't use lipstick. I use lip glosses and eyeshadow. Really frustrating.

Nice program so plastic and glass doesn't go to waste but Mac products are becoming too expensive especially the lipsticks... There are many other companies making better quality lipstick same and more colors for a fraction of what Mac is charging and lately I haven't seen my local Mac counter busy as what it once was I think they are loosing sales even online I've noticed they have lots of left overs from past collections and also put them on sale which is something I haven't seen from them before it used to be that the collections sold out and that was it.. To pay a lil over 100.00 for 5 lipsticks is downright foolish so I won't anymore the only two items I'll purchase is foundation and concealer but I get my foundation free each time and if you want to know how then message me and I'll clue you in because I'm tired of paying high prices to make a million dollar company even more wealthy and they don't give anything free unless you buy 6 items first smh ridiculousness to feed into it.

Original 5 lippies review from 2012:Love this program, we can choose only lipsticks but it's still great!I got Syrup, Sea Sheer, Hug me, Sandy B, Pink Plaid, Cockney, Rebel, Russian Red, Cosmo and Diva this way and had no problem with missing pans to date. Current review:Switching the rating from five to two lippies. I've been a MAC devotee for years partly because of this generous policy but now I've moved on from many of their products simply because I've found alternaties that suit me better. Of course I have benefited from this recicling program a lot and I'm thankful for that. Last year I got an eyeshadow which I was pleased with although I prefered the lipsticks. My 15-pan palettes were already full and I don't like too many single eyeshadows lying around, got Blanc Type which is my Holy Grail matte highlighter to depot and replace the current pan when it's empty.A few months ago they altered that as well in my country and you can only get lipgloss. We all know that lip gloss isn't selling much at the moment and I totally get that; partly because it's more or less a trademark of the past decade and partly because glossy lipsticks have saturated the market anyway so why bother with the sticky gloss, right?Still, MAC makes some lovely glosses - like those in the Cremesheen Glass line - and I'd be happy to get one of those. But nooo, here we can only choose a Lipglass which is known to be MAC's stickiest lipgloss. I bet those don't sell anymore. So no thanks, I don't want a product I know I won't use even if it's for free. I kept my six empties and will take them back when they decide to switch to a decent gift. Is it petty to complain about a freebie? Maybe so but it's also tasteless from the company to reward its loyal customers by unloading the stuff that doesn't please the market for a good reason.

this program is BRILLIANT. I find that Mac products last aaagggeeesss and I have lots and alternate lots so it takes me a very long time to finish anything, but when I do I always exchange them for the freebie. And people are complaining that some countries have switched to a free eyeshadow ??? It's FREE why are you complaining

Great program! Done it three times. I wish it could be only 5 products = a free lippie but beggars can't be choosers!

A great program that I have been recycling my used products with for many years now. The fact that you get a free product in return for doing this is fabulous. I don't care if they change the freebie and becomes something other than lipstick that you get back, I would be grateful for any product. I am sure they have some very impressive stats to reflect how much packaging they have recycled and kept out landfills.Go MAC!

I love this program. I live in Hawaii and the associate at the pearlridge Mac store told me that if there wasn't a metal pan in the eyeshadow pot, they do not consider that as part of back 2 Mac. She told me it was because a bunch of fake Mac products were being distributed so they require the pan to be in the pot.

I love the idea but I'm so sad they don't do this in the Belgian mac stores.

I've been "back-2-mac"ing for years and am ecstatic every time I accumulate six empty products. Just an fyi, empty makeup wipe containers and DUO lash glue from MAC can also be recycled!
