NY BeautyCon sign



Last weekend, I took my beauty product junkie self to my first BeautyCon. BeautyCon is an annual event held in New York and Los Angeles. The event bills itself as ‘all your favorite brands and content creators in one space’. And oh my, what a space it was! The Brooklyn Cruise Terminal was huge and had reps from brands like Maybelline, NYX, Shea Moisture, Cantu, L’Oreal Paris and many more. Gabrielle Union was there looking like a millennial (in a great way!) and promoting her new hair care line, Flawless. If she came out with a skin care line I’d be all over that, just saying. Flawless.

While I had a lot of fun, I think next year I will pony up for one of the higher priced tickets as they allow you to enter the venue earlier and you get more swag. I didn’t get all the great freebies I could have because I didn’t feel like standing on all the lines. I also hope they have more brown girl influencers like Jackie Aina or The Style and Beauty Doctor, Danielle Gray.
