Last week I was invited to PAC’s exclusive bloggers workshop. It’s actually not the first time I’ve heard of the brand. I’ve seen PAC counters several times before and I’ve always been interested in trying out their products but never really gotten around to actually buying something. Anyway, I was really excited to attend the event but unfortunately, my class schedule didn’t permit it. Boo! So earlier today, I was pleasantly surprised to when manong courier delivered a package from Ms. Ella, one of the Marketing Managers of TAO Corporation. Inside the heft package was a generous pile of Kopiko, Energen, Goody Gulp and of course, PAC.
Before I write up individual product reviews on the ones they sent me and use them in creating looks, let me show you some of the products they offer and their prices for your reference.
