How to read M.A.C makeup code?6:13 PM
Every M.A.C item comes with a code. Have u ever wonder what those codes mean?
Blusher peaches...the code is BB2
B-MANUFACTURED IN NOVEMBER
2-MANUFACTURED IN 2012
As you can see in the picture, the code consists of 3 (digit combined with alphabet).
The first code will show you the batch. From what i read, there are total of 3 batches.
A- 1ST BATCH
B- 2ND BATCH
C- 3RD BATCH
The 2nd code represent the MONTH of the item been manufactured.
The 3rd code represent the year of the item produced.
For lipstick faux here..the code is A84
8-MANUFACTURED IN AUGUST
4-MANUFACTURED IN YEAR 2014
When i try to compare with the manufactured date over the box, i found that the manufactured month is 1 month different compared to the code.
For example, the code for mac lipstick above is A55 which means 1st batch,manufactured in may 2015.
But over the box written that the manufactured date is in June 2015. Only 1 month different by the way.Heh!
Hope this entry will benefit you guys. Make sure, if you want to purchase any preloved items or maybe during clearance, do check the code. Thanks for reading.
