MAC in the Czech Republic


Well-known member
Hello everyone!

I am Vlcatko and I am from the Czech Republic (Central Europe). Our country is quite a small one but fortunately we have been blessed by makeup gods and for several years now we have had access to MAC.

I wanted to start this thread to see if there are more people from the Czech Republic on this forum (I know of ONE member who lives here but no others as of yet) and also to help anyone who might be visiting

We have 3 freestanding stores (no PRO store) and all three are in Prague, our main city. But do not be decieved by the fact that they are stores - they are really small and from my experience with MAC overboard, our stores are as small as some counters in other countries. The size goes hand in hand with relatively small stock they get - be it regular items or LE items - they only get few pieces of everything and the chances of something being sold out is always there.

MAC store at Vaclavske namesti (Wenceslas Square)
Vaclavske namesti 4
110 00 Prague 1
Czech Republic
+420 296 325 492
best way to get there: metro (= subway/underground) station Mustek (line A - green)
notes: first and biggest store, most frequented (sells out first, staff should speak English), generally nice and attentive MUAs

MAC store in Palac Flora (Palac Flora shopping mall)
Vinohradska 151
130 00 Prague 3
Czech Republic
+420 255 742 168
best way to get there: metro (= subway/underground) station Flora (line A - green)
notes: smaller store, still quite frequented, generally nice and attentive MUAs

MAC store in OC Chodov (Chodov shopping mall)
Roztylska 19
140 00 Prague 4
Czech Republic
+420 272 075 444
best way to get there: metro (= subway/underground) station Chodov (line C - red)
notes: smaller store, least frequented (you can find some older LE stuff here), some MUAs can be a bit indifferent

  • you can B2M in all 3 stores
  • only for lipsticks as far as I know - the few times I went B2M I was not able to get anything else than lipstick(s)
  • depotted eyeshadow pots are fine, you do not have to have a pan in there - the plastic part is enough
  • some MUAs will take empty packaging from Wipes, some won't
LE Collections
We get MOST of the collections that regular stores get but now and then there is a collection we won't get (Trend F/W 09, MAC in Lillyland...). As a general rule we get most of the collections 1 month later after the original release (the big collections are usually available on the 1st of the month, smaller ones can be put out during the month).

As much as the MUAs in our stores are nice and all, they are really not that well informed - I think every other person here on Specktra knows more about the upcomming collections more than they do. Because of this and the fact that they are not THAT friendly to show you the update book or tell you anything more than "come next week we will have a new collection, it is awesome" I am usually kept in the dark about the exact date/collection we will get next

If you want an approximate release date, check the Release dates for Germany thread where lovely Susanne keeps track of dates for Germany which tends to be 80 % accurate for the Czech Republic as well

Also, if you ever end up here long enough to register at MAC store and leave them your cell number to recieve updates about the new collections - do not, I repeat DO NOT, count on the information to be of any use to you. They usually send the messages week or more (as much as 3 weeks!) AFTER the release of the collection and by then half of the collection will be sold at all 3 stores! We really get just few of each of the items and they sell FAST

Our prices are not the best, sadly. If you think about shopping here for MAC I would think twice - you are better of with prices in the US or even UK.

These are the prices I paid for the products last time I purchased them (conversions calculated by Google, I took the prices from my receipts which include VAT 20 % and price from MAC website, I have no idea about VAT there):

Hey there, Vlcatko! Good to see someone from Prague and loves MAC.
Great information on MAC CZ. Since I live/work near to the Chodov store, I get to check out the place a few times a week.

One thing about the LE collections is they don't usually have them in big quantities, hence those in Wenceslas Square sold out so quickly. I never bother to go there unless I wanna say HI to one of the MAs or the particular collection isn't available in Chodov. I can't speak for the store in Flora since I've been there 3 times before. The one in Chodov usually has plenty of older LE items and chances of getting the new LE item is higher since almost no tourists go there *lol*

My experience with MAC MAs here so far is great, except for one who no longer works there. I usually only walk in if one of them is working. I'm too lazy to make my way to the one in Wenceslas Square and I don't find the MAs that helpful.

The stores here may have different policies for B2M. I know you can't change some LE lipsticks like the ones from Give Me Liberty of London and Hello Kitty. I was told because they've special packaging and the items from such collections are always 20CZK more expensive.

I agree we don't have good prices here. That's why whenever my fiance is in the US, I get him to bring me stuffs from MAC. I travel overseas a few times a year, I always make sure I stock up my regular MAC items.


Thank you so much for this information! I live in Vienna and want to visit Prague soon & was looking for Mac-Stores
The prices are the same, but we don't have B2M here.

We visited your city last week. We were with a young couple that was just married. The girl was a exchange student the US in 2000 and stayed with our daughter's family. I would like to learn Czech.

Thanks for your post Vlcatko! My parents live an hours drive away from the Czech border, it's a smooth 2 hours journey to visit Prague. And really I should make another visit to your wonderful city (and the MAC stores, this time) when I'm home from college.
