RETURNS & EXCHANGES
If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your products purchased from M·A·C Cosmetics Online, either placed in a free-standing M·A·C Store by a M·A·C Artist using our in-store mobile app or on maccosmetics.com.au, you may return any item in its original, unused condition for a full refund or exchange within 14 days from delivery. Your rights under this Returns & Exchanges Policy are in addition to any rights or remedies you have under law, including the Australian Consumer Law.
If you made your purchase through a partnered retailer (Adore Beauty, David Jones, Mecca or Myer) or a M.A.C Store or an airport location, then any return will need to be made in accordance with the returns/cancellation policy of the relevant retailer and should not be returned directly to us.
You can view our list of authorised retail locations here. Conversely, if you purchased products on the M·A·C website, you must return them in accordance with the procedure outlined here and not directly to a partnered retail location.
We cannot accept returned goods that we reasonably believe have been used, except those covered by our Perfect Match Guarantee*.
Refunds and Exchanges will be processed within 8-10 business days after we receive your return. Refunds (excluding the initial delivery charge) will be made against the original payment method used.
All offers including, (samples, gift sets and bags, full size product, discounts) are only offered free of charge when supplied with an authorised and fully completed purchase. Any purchase that is cancelled and refunded, requires the customer to return the purchase including the free of charge item(s). Partially cancelled and refunded purchases require the customer to return the partially cancelled purchase including the free of charge item(s) if the final purchase amount is below the offer qualifier.
An exchange can be made for an item of same or lower value. Please specify the item you wish to exchange for when you return the product.
Return to Sender – if your order has been returned to us, we will email you to confirm your address details. Please allow up to 10 business days for your order to be redelivered. Please note, if your shipping address is a place of business, you need to specify the Business Name for error-free delivery.
