IMATS 2016 Haul

Here are some of the products I picked up from the IMATS LA show this past weekend. I needed to restock my kit and also wanted to try out some new goodies for myself! I always try to make a list of what I “need” and what I would like to browse from specific vendors that are at the show. Then, I’ll walk every aisle and go to the booths I know I want to visit to save time to browse new products and show specials. Here are the goodies I ended up getting from the show!

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS

The new Glow Kits from Anastasia Beverly Hills were definitely calling my name (along with every other person’s name at the show. lol) I had fun swatching these and decided to pick up both kits: That Glow and Gleam. I also picked up the ABH highlighter brush A23 to use with these two kits as well as my other highlighters. I love the shape and build of this brush. Sometimes fan brushes can be too flimsy and don’t apply the product well enough so I’m excited to use this one. I got a new ABH Brow Wiz in Soft Brown and also the new Brow Definer in Medium Brown. I really like the shape of this brow definer and hoping as I use it more, the shape of the pencil holds up! The last thing I got from ABH was the lip gloss in Kristen. I wanted two lipgloss shades in Tara and Kristen (both nudey pink shades) especially since they were selling for $10 instead of $16, but they ran out and I was only able to receive one. Oh well! I think I did pretty well at this booth!

LORAC 20th ANNIVERSARY ALTER EGO LIP COLLECTION

I picked up this beautiful lip set from the Naimie’s booth at the show. The collection includes 10 matte lipsticks and 10 matching lip glosses with the perfect nudes + deep hues. I am so excited to use this set but it may be a while because it’s so pretty to look at I don’t want to touch it just yet. lol I heard they ended up selling out so I’m so happy I was lucky enough to get one.

BEAUTYBLENDER PRO PAC

I restocked on my favorite black beautyblender sponges and Naimie’s always comes through with the Pro Pac. I usually need to make time in my schedule to drive out to Naimie’s Beauty Center because they’re out in Studio City, CA so I was definitely happy to see the Naimie’s booth at the show. They always come through with some special deals for major makeup shows. Yay for beautyblenders!

TARTE COSMETICS

I have the Tartelette palette and have been obsessed with the perfect matte shadows that come in it. So, I had to pick up the Tartelette 2 In Bloom palette at the show! They weren’t offering a huge discount but it was better than no discount so I went for it. I also picked up the Lights Camera Lashes mascara and two Rule Blender double-eyeshadow brushes. Nothing beats a duo shadow brush for $5!

CINEMA SECRETS PRO COSMETICS

I’ve been waiting to finish my Parian Spirit makeup brush cleaner so I can finally get this 32 fluid oz Cinema Secrets Professional Makeup Brush Cleaner! I also restocked on my spray bottle so I can keep one for myself now that I have a big bottle to refill from. I love a GREAT makeup brush cleaner don’t you?

NYX COSMETICS

Prom season is coming up shortly and I wanted to make sure I stocked up on some pretty loose glitter for my clients. I picked out two to try out: Rose and Bronze along with the NYX glitter glue. The girls at the booth were raving about their glue so I’m excited to give it a try!

EMBRYOLISSE LAIT-CREME CONCENTRE

This product is one of my holy grail moisturizers that I always restock on because of the deal they have at makeup shows. With the cold weather that’s been drying out my skin, this has been my go-to moisturizer. It is super nourishing and it gives me the extra moisture my skin needs! I always pick up extra for my mom and sister too. 🤗

ARDELL PROFESSIONAL

My other holy grail product: Ardell Professional Natural false strip lashes in Demi Wispies black is my FAVORITE. They always have a makeup show deal: 8 lashes for $20 and I always stock up my kit with these because they’re my go-to falsies for my clients, especially brides! Let’s just say my makeup storage has it’s own shelf for lashes. lol
