This was promising at first, but after a squeeze and a slight rub, it started almost pilling on my skin, and left no color what so ever. It also felt a bit oily, and wont play well with other makeup. It’s not something I’d want to wear if I knew I was going to be sweating all day.
This was so much more organized then the first day. (Can I get a whoop whoop?) The second day came with more freebies, like Too Faced matching your skin tone and giving you a full foundation. You heard me right, a full size foundation! There was also Smash Box, who gave us not one but TWO full sized eye liners. But the best vendor by far was Tarte. We love their products and surprise, surprise, they did have items for sale. Well, they had select items for sale, (about 12) but they were offered at a 60% discount. YAY.
It felt like we were pros on day two and knew exactly what to do. The event ran much more smoothly, which told us that the Gen Beauty hosts and volunteers were paying attention to the issues from the day before. They were all very nice, and spent time asking us what we thought worked from the day before and where we had problems.
Even though this day was run much better, we felt like we had seen most of what we needed to see on day one. We did get to look around more since it seemed that there were fewer people, and shorter lines, and we even got the chance to buy stuff! (Shopping? Uh, YES)
So, in the afternoon, when we were finally handed the key to the world, our Day Two Glam Bag (choir singing in the background…) we decided to head home.
In the beginning, with all the confused craziness, it was frustrating, but once we got a handle on things, we actually had a fantastic time! Will I go again? Uh HECK YES, whether I am by myself or with my amazing friends.
Oh and I forgot the best part, the savings! Between the glam bags from both days and freebies we received the amount was (drumroll please)
And, I got it all for free!!!
Now, for the items I spent money on. The in-store cost of everything would have been $257.93, but I only paid $128.10, so in the end I saved $129.83, on what I purchased. However, if we want to look at the whole shebang with all the freebies and the discounts, what outrageous numbers would we have?
If I HAD paid for everything in the glam bag at retail price it would have been, $809.11, for a TOTAL SAVINGS OF $681.01.
UNBELIEVABLE RIGHT? These numbers, just blow my mind. I love to save, and Gen Beauty helped me do that, I can’t wait until next year when the whole team will go with me!!
