IMATS Haul photos

By  |  29 Comments

Sorry this took a little longer than expected! I just got a new camera (Nikon d5000) and was waiting until I got my macro lens in the mail so I could be super fancy :)

I’m also going to add that a good amount of the products I’m showing you were given in the gift bag I got from the guru summit. I only bought a handful of things but I wanted to show you guys pictures of just about everything :)





















Not really from IMATS, but so pretty I had to include!! :)




I think I got almost everything! Only thing missing are the crown brushes I got. They’re packed away in my brush roll :) But here’s a glimpse of that anyways:


I’m probably going to do a post for each brand to do more of a review and swatches throughout the week, I just wanted to do a big picture post for you. Enjoy!!

    That Yaby palette looks intense. I can’t wait to see some looks including that. I was wondering if you had any tutorials planned using that Alcone lip palette? I’ve seen a lot of lip palettes and they turned out to be, for lack of a better word, crap. I was wondering about the quality/pigmentation/wear of the colors.

    If you have a chance, could you do a look with the Inglot shadows? I know Jude used Inglot shadows – they look awesome. I am so sad the one in Ottawa closed down I was looking forward to that when I visited.
    Also – I am uber jealous of the companys that go to the IMATS in LA. The one in Toronto last year was kind of small…and I would have loved it if NYX, Stila and Nars were there. Hopefully this year!

    I love that Inglot lipgloss.
    I had something similar to the that done by Laura Mercier.

    And I must say that you should try loose eyeshadows from inglot, they are really nice :) And they have gorgeous fake lashes :> Brushes are also great.

    The Stila trio looks nice.
    The Inglot glosses look awesome in their container!
    The Yaby palette is cool!

    Do you know when the OCC eye shadows will be on sale? I found the new lip tars on the site, but not Nori, the eye shadow.

    I loved Yabbi Best of Both worlds Palette and I just got to know about Crown Brushes… I’ll try to find if they ship to Brazil =)

    Hi Leesha!

    This may be a personal question but I was wondering how do you have so much money to buy all these wonderful things? I have a list of everything I want to buy and I get sad cuz I cant buy everything.
