 Remember When MAC Lipstick Looked Like This?

For years, I have been saving my empty MAC lipstick tubes for the Back to MAC program. But despite my best recycling intentions, the tubes have never gone back to the MAC counter. I keep forgetting.

Any old-heads remember when MAC lipstick tubes looked like this? Holla at me.
