A couple weekends ago I was given the amazing opportunity to attend Ipsy’s Gen Beauty Toronto as an Ipsy OS Creator. Thank you so much Ipsy, Ipsy Open Studios, Michelle Phan, all of the generous sponsors and most importantly my aunt and papa for keeping Bentley so I could attend this weekend. Last month I was generously gifted a ticket for the event by Ipsy OS, but I had also purchased one the day they went on sale so I had went with 2 tickets (expect a giveaway in the neat future;)).
With that being said I was able to attend the content creator party on friday night where we were given our swag bag which. However creators are not able to get the attendee bag since their badge does not have the swag bag ticket include. But since I had an attendee ticket as well I was able to get both bags.
Getting both bags makes for the perfect post. I will be the first to admit that I’ve watched the typical Gen Beauty videos on Youtube and saw creators unbagging these MASSIVE bags. So I was under the impression that every attendee got that bag when I went to my first Gen Beauty last year. So with this post you will get to see a direct comparison between the attendee and the creator goodies bags.
Lets start by comparing the bag itself. They are quite different, the main difference being the size and the material. The creator bag is a large durable fabric with a shoulder strap, where the attendee bag is a fair bit smaller, has the same material as reusable shopping bags and only the 2 handles. The other difference is that the creator bag is Canadian inspired with maple syrup, the CN Tower, the Rocky Mountains, hockey sticks and a beaver just to name a few.
Now lets get onto the fun comparison, everything that was in each bag!
