Free Beauty Haul!

During the month of May, I was lucky enough to attend 4 different beauty events. I get excited about attending these events because I love trying new products and learning about beauty. Complimentary goodie bags were generously given to all guests at these events.

The first May beauty event was hosted by eBayNow and Benefit cosmetics to promote the new eBayNow program in NYC. I found out about this event through Benefit's twitter account (@BenefitBeauty). Makeup artists were on hand to give complimentary mini makeovers and beauty tips to participants. Finally, attendees were given complimentary pink boxes that contained a few Benefit goodies.
