Let me start off by saying how excited I am for Ipsy Gen Beauty NYC 2018! This will be my second time attending Gen Beauty and I am even more excited than I was the first time. My best friend and I attended last year because she received a coupon code in her Ipsy Glam Bag, so we figured why not try it. We were a bit skeptical about the claim of a goodie bag of products worth $300+ but still we figured it was worth the ticket’s price tag but with the coupon it just seemed like an offer we could not resist.
Now when they say that the goodie bag included in your ticket purchase is worth $300+ they are NOT kidding… We were so surprised to have found a bunch of full size products. These products ranged from drug store brands to Sephora brands. Not only do you receive some new products in your goodie bag but the 50+ vendors who are at the convention ALL give out products. Last year Mac gave out full size lipsticks, Tarte gave out brushes (and let me also add that in the goodie bag they gave out a full size eyeshadow palette), Nudestix gave out a lip pencil (pencil+case+sharpener), and the list goes on.
The convention isn’t strictly for makeup either, we received hair and skin products as well. I cannot express how much stuff you really get with the General Admission ticket. Not only do you get products at the booths you visit but you get a goodie bag. The Community ticket does not include a goodie bag.
Anyway, I’m going to do my best and not make this post super lengthy because I tend to do that sometimes… So instead I’m going to end here and share some pictures I took from Gen Beauty NYC 2017.
If you are thinking about attending Gen Beauty I say go for it! The ticket price is well worth the experience. I plan to go back every year. It is a 2 day convention so there’s plenty of time to see all of the vendors on your checklist and be able to experience all of the convention’s beauty.
