blush pretty beauty board

my friend and i went to an amazing event last weekend called the beauty board, which was organized by stephanie of blush pretty. the event featured amazing food, mancarons, drinks, and music. best of all was the extremely diverse representation of brands! all the participants got to be beauty editors for the day, trying out new products, chatting with the vendors and each other, and providing feedback on little cards that would be turned in at the end of the evening in exchange for a huge swag bag! this was the best event i've been to in a long time - it completely exceeded my expectations.


there were a ton of brands showcased at the beauty board and i was super excited to try out a whole bunch of different products i had never seen in stores. most of the vendors had products available for purchase at discounted prices so it was a great opportunity to take home a few extra goodies. not only that, but at the end of the event, we were all provided with personalized swag bags, which were chock full of amazing products.



for your viewing pleasure, i have also included tons of photos of the items that were in my swag bag, along with the items that i purchased.
