Today, I went to the MAC store and picked up my free lipstick. Did I say free? Yes, I did. I got a completely free MAC lipstick and I was so excited to get it. But how did I manage to get a $17 lipstick for nothing? I will explain what you can do to get one for yourself!
When I went to grab my free MAC lipstick I was able to pick from almost every lipstick they had (with the exception of having to only pick the ones with the black and silver base). There were at least 100 to choose from. I didn’t know what to choose at first but I knew I wanted something bright and summery. Especially since I wear a nude lip half the time, I figured why not pick something that would pop against my sun-kissed tan skin.
So, I chose the bright tropical coral shade Tropic Tonic. This shade was perfect after nearly having the woman assisting me swatch almost seven other lipsticks. If I was getting a lipstick for free I wanted to make sure it was something I really liked! I was a little hesitant to pick this one at first because I know if it has an orange/yellow tone to it, it will make your teeth look very yellow. I just went with it though and decided this was the one I’m getting.
I am super happy with the choice because it looks so great against my skin tone and it doesn’t make me look crazy and I can get away with wearing it in public. What’s awesome is that I’m not even tan yet, so I can only imagine how great the lipstick will look after I get tanner!
So I got a free MAC lipstick because I saved up SIX empties. MAC has a recycling program that allows you to bring back SIX empty products (has to be the plastic container, not the cardboard it comes in) and when you recycle those products you will get a free MAC lipstick. It took me quite a while to save up my empties but I eventually was able to get my MAC lipstick. If you have any questions about what can be recycled then you can use the online chat with a customer service employee and they will let you know if it can be recycled or not!
