I'm sure some of you will already know about this but I was recently told so wanted to share just in case.

If you store up 6 empty MAC containers (ie. Lipstick tube, eyeshadow pots - not the boxes) and take them back to MAC, you will be given a free lipstick of your choice.

Does that still exclude some lipstick ranges eg Viva Glam? I stopped using MAC when they started testing on animals in China so they may have changed that policy.

Do all Mac stores, including the ones in department stores, do this?

Ex MAC employee here
Yes excludes viva glam. Is a great policy and they don't advertise it any more. Didn't know that about China. Maybe to do with Estée Lauder takeover, original MAC had very stringent anti animal testing policy.

Yes all MAC stores

Teresa they've been doing for over 3 years now same as Bobbi Brown. It's a shame really as I loved both companies.

I now purchase most of my cosmetics from M&S Autograph range as they are part of the Leaping Bunny programme.
