Generation Beauty 2014!

2 Jun

I’ve been an IPSY subscriber for a few years now, and I finally caved and went to Generation Beauty this past weekend. I’ve gotta say, it was a good decision! I went with my BFF, Megan.

Megan was lucky enough to sprain her ankle the day before. This let her be able to go to the front of all the lines in her wheelchair, while the vendors begrudgingly allowed me to partake in the commotion as “the wheelchair pusher who did not have to wait in line.” Can I just point out how sore my back is now?! Mad props to people who have to deal with wheelchairs every day. The stigma and little situations that come with it- whether you are in the wheelchair or just pushing- is terrible. This is us on the pink carpet outside of the event 🙂

As an IPSY subscriber, I got a discount on my ticket which is why I decided to attend the event. I’m on a budget these days. Now that it’s all over, I will safely say that I’d even pay full price to go. The amount of products that you leave that place with is ridiculously clutch. It all probably costs triple of what your ticket did.

I feel like this event is a win-win for everyone. All the vendors get these eager beauty fans/bloggers that would love to try samples and blog/post anything to social media in return for free product. All the beauty lovers/bloggers get the free product! This is going to save me a lot of money on new product reviews for the foreseeable future.

Here is one of the tons of selfies that I had to instagram to qualify for free product or contests. I’m not a selfie person at all, but for a FULL SIZE BareMinerals foundation and brush, who could resist?! I even won a contest for City Color’s contouring palette. I’m so excited to try it out!

All in all it was a fabulous time! I even got to see my favorite YouTubers 🙂 I spoke with a few people who said that last year’s was better, but I was still totally satisfied this year. Maybe next year will be even better! Product reviews soon ❤

xoxo,

Emma
