One of my favourite bits about such a massive event such as IMATS, is seeing what everyone purchased at the show.
Being last year was my first, I will admit I did go a bit crazy. I do use the majority of what I got so that's redeeming. This year I spent half as much, still got a lot of things but I opted for more wearable products. I will make wearing glitter a thing, I will!
I picked up everything that was on my wishlist for this year. I didn't get a chance to check out the NYX Macroon lippies but they didn't have them. And somehow I managed to miss the small Beauty B Cosmetics stand, I would have loved to see the Melt Cosmetics lipsticks in person.
Anyway, on to the pretties ...
From Sugarpill I got the Cold Chemistry palette. Last year I got the Pro palette but I wanted to try something that was more wearable for everyday. Plus I love the shattered looking packaging.
I also picked up a loose eyeshadow but was unfortunately, given the wrong shade so I sold it.
From NARS I got Hungry Heart blush duo. I haven't really dabbled all that much in the brand but I've been keen to try their blushes. This looks more light highlighters than blushes but we shall see.
From the Love Makeup stand I picked up a Lime Crime lipstick. I absolutely dislike the brand. The owner, the ethics - I just do not agree with the way they run things.
Upon swatching D'Lilac it was love at first sight. It's the most perfect lavender shade.
From OCC I picked up the newly launched Tarred + Feathered tip balm duo. This was the first product they created and to celebrate 10 years of OCC, they've bought it back.
You use it underneath lip tars (or any lip products for that matter) to lighten or darken the shade.
From The Dune Generation collection I picked up Off World stained gloss, a lovely pearlescent pink.
Right before IMATS I purchased a couple new lip tars from Love Makeup but thought I'd include them. From the Plastic Passion collection I picked up Mannequin and Rollergirl.
The Make Up For Ever foundation stand was impossible to get near. I ended up picking up the HD foundation from PAM. They colour matched me to 117 Marble, which I'm a little unsure of as my previous bottle is 115 but we shall see.
I also got one of my favourite lip products EVER. The Aqua Rouge line is so so good. I picked up a couple last year and they are amazing for wearing all day, they don't budge at all. I opted for one of the newest additions, 16 Fuschia.
My last stop before I left and bought on a total whim, was Eye Kandy glitters. I got a 6 set along with a bottle of the adhesive - Liquid Sugar.
Glitters are Gum Drop, Confetti, Butterscotch, Spearmint, Icing and Sour Grape.
Also not properly photographed is the Royal & Langnickel Love Is Patience 13 piece brush set. It's absolutely beautiful and I will have a post on that shortly.
