Toronto 2010 IMATS Haul

This was one busy weekend between working with Vasanti Cosmetics at the National Women's Show and the Toronto IMATS, but the lack of sleep and early mornings were well worth it. Not only did Vasanti's own Gargi Patel break the Guinness Book of World Records™ for the most lipstick applied in 1 hour (445 women!) but the show was a success and it was great to be a part of the Vasanti team once again.

Saturday was a day I had been waiting and saving for a while. I had my mental list ready and only brought the cash I had budgeted for, but all planning kind of went out the window once I got there because I'll admit I was lured in by reps I know and love, big show specials and Kandee Johnson. Yup, after hearing that woman speak first thing in the morning I ran right over to Crown Brushes to purchase her fav contouring brush the IB103 Flat Bronzer and a few other brushes.

This year had a much larger turn out than last years IMATS and I think that was partly due to the draw that KJ had (you should have seen the lineup for her meet and greet wow). Some of the big vendors there were NYX with a large booth smack dab in the middle, Crown Brushes, Makeup Forever, Face Atelier, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Namies that had CoverFX at their booth, Yaby and many more.

Here are some photos courtesy of the beautiful Emily from Emily Loves whom I had the pleasure of meeting... I still cant believe she recognized me from a far Em youre good!


Now for my haul.... I spent more than I wanted to even though it was within my budget but overall I'm really happy with the items I got. I cant wait to play!
-Yaby Dramatically Neutral Pallete ($78 show special)
-Face Atelier's new darker foundations shades in 0++ and Mink #11 as well as their orangey color adjuster and blush called Heat and a few samples of some other foundation shades. (40% pro discount)
-Stila Covertable Color dual lip & cheek cream in Peony (40% off came to $20)
-Crown brushes - IB103 Flat Bronzer ($13 or $15 cant remember), 0659 shadow brush dupe for Mac's 217 ($6.50), 1554 badger hair powder brush ($15.50), 0227 Lip brush ($2.50), 0474 pencil brush dupe for Mac's 219 ($4.50)
-ICCI brushes - Fine tip liner brush ($1), Brow comb ($1), Angle liner brush ($1)

Not a bad shopping day huh! I had a blast and was so happy I got to meet some new bloggers and reconnect with the ones I already knew.

A few have asked for a post on the Yaby palette so as soon as I play around with it I'll do one.

Did you attend the Imats? What was your favourite purchase?

Pin It!

I'm so jealous of all you TBB that got to go!! Emily tweeted me a picture while she was there and it made me want to be there so bad. AND on top of all that I found out you ladies got to see Kandee in person!! She's my favourite youtube guru.
