Update: Since we published this cheap MAC makeup piece, MAC appears to have removed the discounts from the items on its Goodbyes page – but is still listing them with a header saying they have “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.
Somewhat buried on the official MAC Cosmetics website is a treasure trove of cheap MAC makeup with up to 40% off.
The page is called Goodbyes because it’s full of end-of-line MAC makeup, which means that you won’t find the newest, flagship items but you will find some MAC classics and favourites.
The catch is that because these products are “Goodbyes,” only the colours and shades shown on the page are available at a discount and once stock has run out, you would have missed your chance. Also, because of the huge discounts, none of the MAC makeup listed on the Goodbyes page is eligible for other offers, such as the 10% student discount.
You can browse the entire cheap MAC 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 Featured offers or any offers added in the past day and lets you filter by either the highest rated products, or by price (low to high or high to low).
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?

MAC makeup brushes are incredibly popular and always sell out quickly when they appear on MAC’s Goodbyes page so if you’re keen on this deal – be quick! The 217S blending brush is incredibly versatile for not just blending eyeshadow, but also sweeping a primer eyeshadow colour across your entire lid or blending highlighter on your cheeks, the tip of your nose or Cupid’s bow.Buy now from MAC's Goodbyes range
You can also get the fantastic MAC Lipglass lip gloss in a metallic pink/ruby colour called Star Memoir from MAC’s Christmas-themed Starring You range for £9, down from £16. We love the Lipglass collection (so much so it features in our best lip gloss roundup) and this colour is deep and rich and will suit darker skin tones – or fair-skinned people who want to make a statement.Buy now from MAC's Goodbyes range
