Colourpop “Foxy” Minis Mania 

I’ll be honest. I only wanted this kit of liquid lipsticks because of the name. My dog’s name is Foxy, if you didn’t know. That being said, I like the products, too, so that’s nice! Click for swatches & a little {unwanted} opinion~

We all watched Desi and Lustrelux’s Snapchats as they ventured to New York to attend the 2015 Gen Beauty event. Swooning over makeup and meet-and-greets, while we worked or sat home. It hurt even more when their beautifully edited trip recaps were posted to Youtube.

And now it’s our turn, Los Angelenos.

Gen Beauty is returning to LA on January 30th and 31st! What a way to start the new year. The earliest of the early bird tickets ($59) sold out in a flash, but the second set of early tickets ($89) are on sale now and available while supplies last until November 15th. After that the ticket price goes up to $159, yikes!

The event will feature a $200 swag bag, great networking, meet & greets and pop-up shops. Vendors are not listed yet, but past vendors include NYX, Lush, Ardell, China Glaze, Cargo Cosmetics, It Cosmetics, Smashbox and Too Faced, to name a few.

Confirmed Ipsy Stylists include: Desi Perkins, Lustrelux, Chrisspy, Michelle Phan, and Christen Dominique.
