Vintage (read: "old") MAC Eyeshadow Pots

Strange question, but my mom has some really old mac eyeshadow pots-- the kind that twist off, and the logo looks different, etc....

1. Can I b2m them?
2. *Should* I b2m them? Is there any reason to hang on to these "vintage" pots... do people collect these kinds of things, etc.?

Well if it was me I would hang on to them!

You can B2M them, but if you really wanted to get rid of them I would try to sell them first.

People collect all sorts of things, I would either keep them or try to sell them! If you can't sell them and you don't want them you should be able to B2M them. I know that people like to collect older MAC brushes from when the company began and the numbering system was way different, people may collect these too!

It's funny, I actually have one of those old brushes... I was wondering why my number was so weird! I was very young when I got it.... my mom probably has a few of those old brushes too.... interesting to hear that people want these types of things.... thanks for the input!

Here you go! (Turns out she only has one eye shadow pot because she b2m'd some last month... Haven't checked her brushes yet, but this one is mine...)

(P.S. The eye shadow pot is shiny plastic and the writing on the colour label has rubbed off)

That's old old school! lol That is the first shadow pot design they had. I have one of those left.

The brushes used to have 2 numbers, as opposed to their current numbering protocol which employs 3 digits. I have a few of those too.

I'm old! lol

Nice find! smiles.gif

I commandeered a few older shadows from my mom, as well. She had bought them at MAC with me ages ago and she had never used them. I wound up with Hemp, Lola and Lyric that way (at least I think those were the colours). I figured they needed a new home with a loving owner. lol

Thanks for your input, you guys... I think I will hang on to them! I'd feel bad giving them away now!

See... this is how mac gets you-- they tell you that you can b2m and then by the time you finish an eyeshadow you don't want to give the pot back because it's a collectable--- lol.... :p

That brush above has the same logo/numbering as my old-school "22" brush. I love that thing so much, it's impossible to part with it. It's definitely starting to show it's age, but it shows you how well put together those things are that I'm still using it (daily).

For sure, they were def made really well... I think that back then there was a lifetime guarantee on the brushes? I seem to remember that being a selling point.....

If you think you're old....I have 2 MAC brushes that do not have a number on them. They actually say, "eyeliner" and "blush" directly on the brush. I purchased them 20 years ago. I still have them and they are in excellent condition.
