Somewhat buried on the official MAC Cosmetics website used to be a treasure trove of cheap MAC makeup with up to 40% off. While it appears this has been largely abandoned, we recently stumbled upon a brand new discount page – called MAC Treats – and actually the savings are even better.
On the MAC Treats page, not only will you find cheap MAC makeup, but each of the products are up to 50% cheaper while stocks last. This also includes makeup brushes.
You can browse the entire cheap MAC Cosmetics makeup on offer, or you can filter the choices by the drop-down menu in the top right-hand corner of the listings. This menu lets you see MAC’s highest rated products on offer, or lets you sort the price order.
What it doesn’t show explicitly, and doesn’t let you filter by, is the amount of discount but trust us, there are some substantial savings to be had. We mean, where else can you get MAC makeup on the cheap from an official source?

The previous cheap MAC Cosmetics makeup page – called Goodbyes because it’s full of end-of-line MAC makeup – is still live but it’s not what it once was.
It used to be home to some great bargains yet since we first published this cheap MAC makeup piece, the company appears to have removed the majority of discounts from the items on this Goodbyes page.
This is despite still listing them under the misleading header of “up to 40% off”. The US version of the Goodbyes page is still showing discounts (albeit very few) so we’re not sure why the UK one isn’t and whether MAC is abandoning this idea.
We’ve also tried putting items into our basket to see if the discount is applied automatically, but it isn’t, so we’ve contacted MAC for more information and will update when we know more.
If you’re after more makeup bargains, check out our makeup sale page which lists the best offers and discounts across brands including Morphe, Estee Lauder, Kerastase, Huda Beauty and more. We’ve also got dedicated Boots sale, Charlotte Tilbury sale, and GHD sale pages that are regularly updated.
Below we’ve highlighted our favourite listings on the MAC Treats page, the best place we’ve found to get cheap MAC Cosmetics makeup at the time of writing. Prices are subject to change and all listings are correct at the time of writing.
