It’s that time of the year again! This weekend was one of one of my favorite beauty events, Gen Beauty. Gen Beauty is short for Generation Beauty, and it’s a beauty con created by and for subscribers of Ipsy. Gen Beauty is entirely different from BeautyCon! All meetups are 100% free and included within ticket prices. Also, Gen Beauty gives out a ton more freebies, be prepared for a crazy AF haul. This year at GenBeauty, I attended with my friend Esther! We had so much exploring everything and taking a ton of photos together. I feel like the experience was so much different this year because I was with a friend and I loved it.
Other than hanging out with Esther, I found that this year, I discovered a ton of new and exciting brands. There was also a ton more brands who attended this year’s events. Here are some brands that I am excited for:
Beyond discovering a ton of new brands, I got to see some of my favorite brands as well which was super exciting! Beyond seeing brands, I wanted to do a haul for you. The first section is going to be what I got in the Swag Bag that came free with admission. The next part will be a day 1 haul and finally a day 2 haul. Please note that many of these products I received free from brands, if not free the products were discounted up to 50%.
Here’s everything we got in the swag bag that came with my admission to the event. I was the most excited about Moda beauty sponges and the Balm Blush.
Day 1 Haul
Besides receiving the swag bag on day one, I also went around to a ton of different booths. The items I am most excited for all the palettes, both of which I purchased from booths.
Day 2 Haul
The haul the last day doesn’t seem like a lot but in reality, I actually went to more brands this day.
Which item do you think is the most interesting?
