IMATS Los Angeles 2013
I’m so glad you’ve once again stopped by my fashion/beauty blog!
Last Fridayyyyy, I attended my very first IMATS in Pasadena, CA!! I attended with a friend of mine, Carrie…we both had a blast!! I knew what to expect somewhat, from what friends have said, YouTube videos, and also the fact its a trade show, so I figured there would be vendors, tables set up with products galore, and longggg lines… and while yes that’s true, it was basically tables full of makeup and lines to buy the products, there was also a lot more than that going on such as fashion shows, exhibitions, a costume battle, key note speakers, etc…. simply put, it was a lot of fun!
Who were the vendors? There were sooo many on the exhibitor list!! Brands from Inglot, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Ardell, Stila, Lime Crime, Sigma, Bh Cosmetics, Shany, Enzo Milano, to Pursebuzz and Makeup Geeks’s new lines, and even so many other exhibitors showcasing their makeup, makeup tools/brushes, theatre art, or airbrushing products, etc…
Take a look!! Just a few pictures I took so my lovely readers can see!!
Row after row of different exhibitors and products!! (The full list can be found here)
Got some Miss Moss “Red Cherry” lashes, Inglot, Stila, Bobbi Brown, Beauty So Clean, OCC Lip Tar, annnnd Sigma!!! I am very very happy with all my purchases, and actually wishing I bought more of certain things!! For example, I’m regretting having not bought the bigger bottle of the Beauty So Clean makeup disinfectant spray, I got the small size… hope it’ll last me until next year!!!…okay maybe not. Considering this was my very first IMATS event, I’m content. Definitely got way more lashes than I will use in a year but am excited to try them all out… loving the Inglot blushes and gel eyeliner I got… Lip Tars are so pretty and liking the minty-ness, restocked on some Stila products, Bobbi Brown makeup remover, Beauty So Clean brush cleaner & makeup disinfectant sprays, and last but not least, absolutely happy with my first ever & brand new Sigma brushes!!!!
Check out the Sigma line my friend & I stood in…2 hours!! … well, ok, she stood in line for maybe 45mins, then I joined her again, hehe.
Umhmm… the line from the wall, turns, the wraps behind and in front of the bright Sigma makeup section lights, till you reach the table with the nice Sigma ladies who ring your purchases up. 2 hour wait!!…. and so totally worth it :]
Here are a few more pictures to enjoy from my experience inside IMATS 2013 LA!!
Not only was there makeup for the average consumer, but also for theatre/movies…. as you will see from SOME, some were wayyy creepy, and trust me, I saw even creepier ones than these, but there was no way I wanted to snap photos of them, haha.
