    MAC Items Being Discontinued in 2016

    Earlier, Christine at Temptalia posted she'd read Folie, Mystery, Bamboo, and Soot eyeshadows were all getting the axe.

    Anyhoo. Another year, another thread for discontinued MAC items.

    Does anyone have detailed info about the Back2MAC program being discontinued? There was a lot of discussion about it in a german Facebook group as several members were told about it by MAC MUAs, but I haven't followed it too closely and there seems to be conflicting info. It might just be in Germany, but from what I gathered B2M is only available in stores from now on, no counters, and that it will end altogther some time this year. I'm wondering if they will phase it out worldwide... I know I would be p!ssed if it was just Germany, that would seem unfair.

    Happy New Year btw!

    That would be unfair. We don't have B2M in Holland and it really sucks so I hope you can keep B2M stuff in the future.

    And happy New Year Nay! And everyone else.

    Ah freshwater is also getting the axe. I need to use it more. The only thing I'm interested in getting is Bamboo which has been on my wish list for a long time. I almost got mylar too but I realized I have it in the Rick Baker halloween palette. So many classic eyeshadows going... Sad panda.

    I hope they don't axe the B2M programme. I don't have the programme in my country but I still save my empties to B2M when I travel to the States

    They aren't doing away with it. They're actually updating it at freestanding stores so that you can bring in your empties as you have them (1 empty here, 3 empties there), and the system will track them for you. As you reach 6, then you can get your freebie. No more having to collect 6 before you take them all in. Now they'll track them for you!

    Oooh! That would be helpful to those with access to a freestanding store!

    Naynadine I did B2M at Douglas in December, and they have recently introduced a new system. One now needs to pick a lipstick at the counter but one gives away the empties at the cash checkout, and I got a receipt as well. I didn't have to fill my name and adress in a list any more. I guess the new system being introduced means B2M is supposed to stay.

    Thanks, guys. That's good to hear, I guess some people were given wrong info.

    I wish MAC would replace Soot with Cast Iron from the Navy X9 palette

    Anyway I'm glad Goodbyes section is back, and now MAC sends me email updates whenever anything is about to be discontinued, big improvement over last year

    Those are a lot of shadows. Some of those surprise me. Not surprised about Ivy fluidline. That seems to dry out all the time.

    Kid and Mystery? WHY??? Mystery is such a nice cool chocolate shade.

    Does anyone know anything about Nymphette lipglass? I heard some rumors about it being discontinued, I hope it is not true, it is one of my faves. And I think it is selling really well... It is quite a popular shade.

    Thanks for all the info girls!

    I am sad to hear that the size to go pigments are getting discontinued. They were the perfect size for me as I don't use them that regularly and perfect to travel as well!

    This sounds weird. I bet they'll come up with something similar in similar shades. But of course, the liners will be a tad more expensive.
