Considering MAC smash everything from lipstick lines to special collections it is no great surprise that the brand's cosmetic counters are always buzzing.
But have you ever wondered what kind of juicy insider secrets you would learn while working for the makeup giant?
Buzzfeed Style recently rounded up a long list of MAC employee secrets, so we've picked out our favourite eight just for you:
1. MAC staff get a pretty decent discount:
As anyone who’s ever worked a retail job will know, people are always mad to know what kind of discount you get and for MAC employees, it’s pretty hefty indeed. MAC staff can reportedly get up to 60 percent off the brand’s products as well as a monthly allowance to spend in store.
2. And once a year they can get whatever they want for FREE:
MAC’s annual gratis is a time when staff members can order a selection of their favourite products for free. The actual dream.
3. But in fairness you’d want a helping hand if you had to wear makeup ALL of the time.
There’s no taking a makeup free day if you work at MAC because the MAC MUA’s are expected to wear a full face of makeup all of the time. If you’re working in-store and aren’t seen to be wearing enough product, you will be asked to apply more.
4. So how do they keep themselves fresh faced on the floor all day?
A good spritz of Fix + is how. MAC’s must have refreshing mist is a bit of a cult beauty product as this lightweight water-based spray helps keep the face hydrated while giving fading makeup the boost it needs.
5. Which must have product is impossible to get hold of?
The brand's most in demand product is the Soar lip liner thanks to Kylie Jenner. Back before Kylie Cosmetics began breaking the Internet on a daily basis the reality star also recommended MAC's Whirl liner.
6. Six MAC empties do equal a free lipstick.
Love having 6 MAC empties. Free lipstick

So be sure to hold on to those bad boys.
7. They know their stuff:
You can't just wander in off the street and land a job in MAC – you've got to earn those benefits. While some staff members were trained by MAC and others learned their trade elsewhere, everyone working in MAC is a qualified makeup artist.
8. Oh, there is one more perk…
When MAC artists move up the ranks they are awarded a MAC necklace to mark their achievements. Nice!
