If u take your empty mac lipstick to the counter they also give u a new one
I think you can take 6 empty Mac containers in Trading 4 for a free lipstick. So ladies save them and don't throw them away.

Sounds like a great recycling scheme. Incentives for the consumer to recycle and it's probably money-saving for the manufacturer.

I don't understand why they need to keep testing their products on animals? Surely the research and data sheets they've got on all the chemicals they use should tell them all they need to know?
I don't know if anyone has noticed but this is a price match for Debenhams who are selling Mac for £14.75 to £15.75 with Free Click and Collect. I just got Ruby Woo for £14.75 with Free Click and Collect.

Good find though!

Unfortunately animal testing on foreign cosmetics is the law if a company wants to sell in China, which MAC do. It absolutely shouldn't be required in this day and age, and there are plenty of companies out there who chose morals over profits in China, so personally I like to support those companies instead of ones like MAC

I looked into this, below is a statement from M.A.C:
maccosmetics.co.uk/ani…ing

M·A·C does not test on animals. We do not own any animal testing facilities and we never ask others to test on animals for us. While some governments conduct animal testing to prove safety before they will allow us to sell our products, M·A·C has never tested on animals and we continue to be a leader in the movement to end animal testing globally. To this end, we are proud to partner with IIVS (INSTITUTE FOR IN VITRO SCIENCES) to expand the use and acceptance of non-animal testing methods worldwide.

I am against animal testing but I also hate Fake News.
If the above is wrong and there is proof, please feel free to correct, else please take down the fake news

What you've quoted, albeit in a clever roundabout way, confirms that they don't test on animals and don't ASK anybody to, but goverments such as China will do it of their own accord as they require it for the product to be certified as safe to be sold. This is why most people do not consider them a cruelty free brand, as simply selling in China currently means the product has been tested on animals whether the really company wanted them to or not.

When you research cruelty free cosmetics you will find many brands are very wise with their words to try and and promote a positive reputation. A lot of them will clearly and strongly state that they don't believe in animal testing, which is great! However some people take that at face value and don't read more into what they are actually saying.

There is hope though as it's been suggested that IIVS have agreed alternative testing methods with China which I understand might be implemented soon, or that was the case last time I looked into it

they could just refuse to sell to the Chinese market like many actual cruelty free brands. All it takes is one of the big players (L'oreal/P&G etc) to make a stand against it and we'll see how quickly the laws will change to avoid empty shelves. But of course, profit over morals.

They have been really crafty there with their wording. They’re saying that some governments conduct animal testing before they’re allowed to sell their products, but it’s likely MAC have to pay for that service (I doubt the government will offer it for free), so MAC are contributing to animal testing by going through that process and paying for it to be done. They’re not doing the testing themselves, but they’re basically saying profit is more important than principle.
