I went to IMATS NYC yesterday and I had a great time. This was IMATS first time coming to NYC and we completely sold out the event. It was super packed but not unbearable, although I got there later than expected. I met some familiar faces, got some goodies and best of all stuck to my budget!
I met my Soror Camille there and we hung out the whole time and had lunch after. Camille had a ball, she definitely enjoyed her first IMATS experience!
YouTube Guru Lauren, QueenofBlendingMUA was in the building with OCC. She is so cool!
I ran into Ms Diva Lisa from Welcome2DivasWorld. Don’t forget to check my girl out!
Then we turned around and ran into Ms Fancy Face Tina, who had a bag full of lashes lol
Now onto my goodies…
5 pan round eyeshadow palette $19
(Swatches coming up next… these deserve their own post)
I picked up two gel liners in 77 matte black. I will be reviewing these soon. $8 each
The Sleek Lip Paints are very creamy, smell like vanilla frosting but not sticky at all. The gel lipsticks glide on well and are really shiny. Love the colors I chose! All $9 each
I fell in love with OCC Lip Tar in Beta, a bright neon orange. It tones down a bit as it dries. Lauren also loved Beta and said she would be wearing it at IMATS on Sunday 😉 I bought Feathered to use to lighten and mix my tars collection. $10 each
Beauty So Clean
I picked up a bottle of Beauty So Clean Sanitizing Mist to sanitize products in my kit and personal collection, since I heard such great things about the brand. I also won a small mist at the presentation. My Soror Camille won a pro pack to split with someone else. I’m jealous! lol. I lucked out and got the last bottle of sanitizing mist $20
Cici Fashion Brushes
I picked these up for my gel liners as you can never have enough liner brushes… they were only a buck each!
Watch the video to see more pictures and my IMATS live footage
Gosh, you managed to stick to your budget?!? I salute you. I know I would have gone crazy if I were there. Thanks for sharing this vid. So crowded! And yeah, the guy’s shoes are darned cool! 🙂 I know I’ve said this before: I really love your hairstyle!
lol Yes Wit, I was determined to stick to my budget as I didn’t really need anything. Nathan’s shoes were fierce and he walked in them better then some females. Thanks for the compliment. I am still loving the short cut and planning to keep it! 🙂
