Of course OCC was my first stop, I had to touch all of the lip tars and restrain myself from buying each and every shade. I ended up with one of their newest shades, Rollergirl! (The bright lavender in the upper right hand corner).
Limcrieme! I love my Limecrime Velvetines and lipsticks,so picked up a few new shades! I also decided to be a bit adventurous this year and try out some of their eye products. The Limecrime booth is always eye candy to me, I love seeing all of the bright colors together.
The NYX booth was HUGE. It had four long sides, each packed with goodies. This is only a small portion of it, displaying all of the liners! Everything was on a great discount, I went crazy and bought way too many things, but hey it's IMATS.
Too Faced wins the award for cleanest booth, haha! They were very organized, something that everyone appreciates at IMATS. I bought a few of their newest items, the Chocolate Bar palette and the new Sweethearts blush.
Ka' Oir Cosmetics is a makeup line created by model Keyshia Ka'Oir that features bright, bold makeup suitable for all skin tones. I had a great time playing with all of their bright glosses, lipsticks, and glitters. I ended up with swatches ALL OVER my hands and arms!
Dose of Colors is a new brand to me, and this was also their first year at IMATS. All of their lipsticks and glosses were incredibly pigmented and creamy!
I had the chance to meet my all time favorite YouTuber, Emily of Beauty Broadcast! She was so down to Earth and even sweeter in person. It was so cool getting to tell her how I've been watching her videos all of these years, which inspired me to creating my own channel!
I also got to visit with Doe Dere, the founder of Limecrime! Ever since we met at last year's IMATS, we've stayed in touch and become friends! It was so nice getting to catch up in person. I'm so happy with how far Limecrime has come this year!
IMATS 2014 was amazing,I got everything I wanted and then some! The lines were long, the crowds were big, and the deals were unbeatable. It was awesome how many people came up to me for pictures and hugs, meeting subscribers was just unreal. I loved every minute of it, the crazy chaos of IMATS will always hold a special place in my heart.
See you next year IMATS Los Angeles! ;)
