M·A·C Try-On Pacs / Skin, Foundation Make-up (Asia exclusive)

24 Oct

I have recently read some online beauty bloggers in Taiwan (Mandarin language) regarding how much they love using the products from the M·A·C Try-On Pacs/Foundation, how the product totally worked for them, and how beautiful it looks on their skin (before & after)… I then I did some online research… yes, I remember in Asia, in addition to the M·A·C Holiday Gift Sets (colour make-up products or brush sets), they also offer other foundation, skin make-up sets to celebrate the anniversaries.

In the past, M·A·C had similar sets in North America such as the  M·A·C Try-On Pacs/Skincare:

Three new skincare combos in a see-through utility pac. One full-size moisturizer plus three travel sizes of our skincare faves. Much m ore than a tasting. Indispensable for you skin. Be a pac rat!

  • Try-On Pac 1: Moisture Feed/Skin, Fix+, Moisture Feed/Eye, Demi-Wipes
  • Try-On Pac 2: Studio Moisture Fix, Fix+, Fast Response Eye Cream, Demi-Wipes
  • Try-On Pac 3: Oil Control Lotion, Fix+, Fast Response Eye Cream, Demi-Wipes

The last time I remember that M·A·C in North America has these pacs was in winter 2002. I am not sure why they don’t have it more often but I certainly love them, especially now M·A·C has came out with so many new Prep + Prime primer products and other new skincare products, I think customer would love to try them as a set, or it will be nice to give as a gift for make-up starters. The pacs all come with a see-through make-up bag, which is also great for make-up freelancers or travelers to use.

Here are the M·A·C Try-On Pacs/Foundation from Asia/Pacific countries that I would like to share with you. They are in such a great value, and the size of the products are certainly great for travelers… and even for make-up artists’ kits. If I am not wrong, I think Asia carry these pacs every year at their specialty department store locations as their anniversary sets. So here they are:
