Meant for industry professionals not the general public
A bit unorganized. Classes were to better a business. One big line to buy stuff. Swag bag had no swag...all a bit disappointing from an outsiders perspective
The swag bag was a joke, two tiny travel size makeup brushes. Not as many venders as I expected. The shopping line was out of control, not well managed. So glad we didn't pay the full price!
I was very excited to experience my first ever beauty expo. I loved watching KJB speak, that was definitely the highlight of my day. The only thing that I wish was different, was the makeup vendor display. The line swept along the whole room and we couldn't move to look at anything. After waiting in line for quite some time, we ended up leaving. Hopefully moving forward it will be in a bigger area with room for everyone to roam around. But for the first annual Midwest Makeup Show, it was pretty neat.
Unorganized. Swag bag was a joke- it didn't contain anything.
This was a gross misrepresentation and a huge disappointment.
Very long line to see and purchase makeup. Took over an hour with small selection. Would not go again. There was little to do and see. This is nothing compared to Chicago hair show.
The set up was very poor. I spent more time waiting in lines than looking at anything.
I loved it can't wait for it to expand and have WOC brands as well.
