I had such a great time at Generation Beauty by ipsy. This year’s event definitely improved on last year’s first Generation Beauty – more freebies, vendors, and speakers. I was also fortunate enough to attend Friday’s VIP Happy Hour at YouTube Space LA.
Friday’s Happy Hour had a nice, mellow vibe. It was more of a meet and greet with other influencers, while enjoying drinks, snacks, and Keurig coffee from Brew It Up LA. They also gave us an incredible goody bag. Everyone was dressed super cute, especially the adorable Michelle Phan. You either love her or hate her! I love her and think it’s amazing how successful she’s been. One can only dream!
Saturday’s Generation Beauty was packed. I arrived at 11am with fellow beauty blogger Ahleessa4Realz and headed straight for Benefit Beauty. They were giving away samples of their new Push-Up Liner, and I had a coupon from Friday’s event for a free full-size one. I cannot tell you how excited I am to try this new product.
After that, we roamed for a bit and checked out Nyx and City Color Cosmetics, then headed for the Bare Minerals line. Bare Minerals was showcasing their new Bareskin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation and offering a free full-size foundation AND brush to attendees. Sure, we waited in line for 3 hours, but it was totally worth it. I know many would say “screw the 3-hour line,” but we were able to hold each other’s place while the other would go check out other booths. I stood in line while Ahleessa4Realz checked out SOHO and got her freebie Bare Minerals lippie, then we traded off and I headed to SOHO, Crown Brush and Pacifica. In the mix of that, we also checked out Ardell and Nyx Cosmetics again to score a freebie lip butter gloss. Plus, we met some other great gals in the line, and it’s always nice to meet new people.
I wasn’t able to attend Sunday, but heard it was a blast, too!
I’m hoping they continue this event annually – I would go every year! Below are some random photos from this weekend.

I purchased the 2 City Color palettes, but everything else was gratis from the sponsors. Thank you Ipsy and ALL the sponsors for this great event! Get your tickets early next year and don’t miss out. =)
