If you have not been to GenBeauty and you are beauty lover, I HIGHLY recommend attending the next one if you can! My friend Erika and I were accepted into IpsyOS and go tickets to attend the VIP cocktail party as well as the two day event in NYC. An excuse to go to NYC for a girls weekend full of makeup and food?! HELLLSSS YAAAASSS!
VIP PARTY- This brought me back to my college days of night clubs! The atmosphere was just like a night club with the addition of an open bar, appetizers, henna, photo booths, and tons of youtube creators! After Erika and I got there with the pouring rain, we spent the night mingling and dancing! When we left we were given a HUGE swag bag. When I say HUGE I mean it was like 30 pounds!!
GENBEAUTY EVENT- We really didn’t know what to expect since it was our first time attending. There were tons of people in line before the doors opened. When the doors opened it was like Black Friday at a Walmart!! People were running and pushing and it was kind of crazy! Each person got a sheet that had a tear off for each vendor and could redeem them for a “giveaway” item at each booth. Most booths had little activities you could do as well. A lot of them gave you the option to IG or twitter things for chances of winning extra goodies! Erika hit the jackpot and won a Skin Inc set and a Temptu Air! I did win a Skin Inc set, so I was happy 🙂 Only a handful of vendors had things to purchase at a sale price. I feel like the point of GenBeauty is more of generating buzz for the brands and for the brands to talk about the products to the public and creators. Its more of a mix and mingle type deal than a trade show. Everyone there was super nice and its always fun to be around like minded individuals!
