PHAMExpo Experience and Haul!

A few weeks ago I attended PHAMExpo, the Professional Hair and Makeup Expo, and it was amazing! I never even heard about this makeup trade show until I saw a giveaway on one of my favorite beauty blogs, Portrait of Mai. I won two VIP tickets for both days that the event was held, and I had so much fun!

First I headed over to MAC Pro, where they had this stunning mural that was created with makeup products! 

Here are some of the products from MAC Pro, unfortunately they weren't selling anything but it was nice to see some different products. The shade sticks (above) are so cool!

Then I went over to OCC Cosmetics, and found this lovely display of Lip Tars! I bought the shade Anime. It was hard not to get them all! 

Here is the Limecrime booth! It was my favorite booth there, I loved the Wall of Daydreams, where everyone could write down their dream. It was such a cute idea, and it corresponded perfectly with Doe Deere's "Don't Quit You Daydream" speech. So cute! 

Here I am with founder of LimeCrime, Doe Deere and model Jeffree Star! It was so nice getting to see Doe again, we did lots of chatting! Jeffree looks fierce, but I swear he's really nice! 

Of course I had to stop by Sugarpill! I love their pressed shadows and loose pigments. Once again, I had to restrain myself from over-shopping! Look at all the sparkle! 

 I had the pleasure of meeting Queenofblending and the founder of Sugarpill, Amy again! Both of them were so sweet. Amy said that I looked like Snow White! 

Here's my haul! All of the NYX items came in a free goodie bag! Everything else are things that I've really wanted to try for a long time, so I'm glad that I finally got them at a discounted price too. I will be reviewing all of these items individually, as soon as I've tested them out and gathered my final thoughts on them! 

I just wanted to say a special thank you to Mai for having such an awesome giveaway! It was so great getting to meet one of my favorite beauty bloggers, Mai is so sweet. I highly suggest checking out her blog Portrait of Mai, she has tons of super helpful reviews with swatches and great photos. Thanks again Mai! 

I really enjoyed myself at PHAMExpo! I'm so thankful that I had the chance to attend this event, the vendors were great and I had the chance to meet some really cool people and catch up with friends. The atmosphere was similar to IMATS, but it was relaxing and there weren't nearly as many people there! I hope that PHAMExpo will become an annual event, I'd love to go again next year!
