Massive Beautycon NYC 2019 Haul

If you follow me on Twitter, then you may have seen that there was drama surrounding this year’s Hauler bag at Beautycon NYC 2019. To summarize everything in the simplest terms possible, people were highly disappointed at this year’s Hauler Bag (Freebie bag) because (1) the bag had barely any product in it when compared to previous years and (2) many of us actually received bags that were only half-full. Although Beautycon tried to rectify the latter issue, I still did not receive everything that my friend did and others were so disappointed that they didn’t come back to swap out their bag.

Nevertheless, between the hauler bag, the free samples from exhibiting brands, and the purchases I made at the event, I actually came home with a ton of products! As always, I don’t share posts with the intention to brag…personally, I like watching or reading this type of content because I genuinely love beauty and I’m just curious to see what is out on the market. If you’re like me, then please keep reading.
