I wanted to share my thoughts on Generation Beauty! They had a “pink” carpet to take photos on! That was a cute detail.
This was a great place to gather as a makeup lover. The lines were blurred between pros and the cosmetic obsessed! I love that…another thing is anyone could buy tickets, if you bought them early they were as low as $45 and they had breaks for IPSY members also (confession: I really regretted canceling this subscription to IPSY…Birchbox, not so much, so I signed back up for IPSY 🙂 ) , the swag more than paid for the ticket! I snapped photos of most of the booths for you, enjoy!
The Sexy Hair area was HUGE, there pros were there styling and using their fantastic products!
I loved the Bare Minerals area! It was big and roomy, and they were very generous in what they gave out to try.
Nicole by O.P.I. was there, giving free manis 🙂 They also had all their Selena Gomes & Modern Family lines out for us to check out.
A brand that took me by surprise is Pacifica. You know how sensitive my skin is, I had gotten to the point of removing fragranced cleansers and lotions from my beauty regimen because my skin cannot tolerate it. I even launder my clothes in fragrance free soaps. This company gave me hope again! Their line smells amazing, but naturally! No chemicals or engineered fragrances are added, I cannot wait to try more from them! They even have a pure makeup line, their eyeshadow quads are natural and only $14! You can’t even get 1 MAC shadow for that 🙂
There where workshops and question & answer sessions going on while you walked around and checked out the booths.
I meet some lovely Youtube personalities/ beauty gurus while I was there!
With the lovely Nicole Guerriero
What a sweetie Promise Pham is!
My energetic and real girl…the one & only Kandee Johnson 🙂
Last but not least the mastermind behind this whole operation, the kind & gracious Michelle Phan.
Onto the swag! There was swag both days but I only went Sunday, but some of the companies gave me extra goodies to review for you, if I had gone both days can you imagine the piles of product I would have??? I’m telling you, if you can make it come next year! 🙂
Swatches and first impressions post to come for some of my favorite brands!
