The biggest day of the year!!! IMATS
It’s every makeup lovers dream and my wallet’s nitemare. This year I did great, I got a lot of stuff and saved a lot of money. I went on Friday which is for pro card holders and a guest, and the lines were so much shorter then when I went last year on a regular Saturday.
My first stop LIMECRIME
Despite their hacking controversy, Limecrime was present and had a mini discount on their products, $2 off lipsticks and $5 off the glitters. I purchased limited edition velvetine Rave and a velvetine I’ve been trying to get my hands on Salem (the darker color). The blue glitter shadow Cancer, for the zodiac sign is going to be fun to use.
Anastasia Beverly Hills
Love Love this brand and when I heard she was going to be there I was in makeup heaven, but I got even more distracted when I built my own contour palette. I cannot be any more happier with the selection I got and with how much I saved. A premade palette was $44 but if you buy 6 refill colors you get it for $32 and it comes with a free palette! SOLD! I restocked on my Dipbrow Pomade as well which is my absolute favorite eyebrow product.

I love the colors that Sugarpill has, so bright and so pigmented. I had purchased their palette which had all the colors last year so I went to check them out and found a loose eyeshadow I fell in love with. Grand Tiara! The name alone had this Queen interested. They had a $5 sale on lashes as well and you’ll soon see I love my lashes. These 2 are called Precious and Adore, on my hand is the eyeshadow.
Mink Wink Lashes
Every girl needs a pair of mink lashes for those special events or to just feel GLAMOUROUS. I stumbled upon this brand and these lashes caught my eye and my heart. They are called Spiky Loubs, and I already know when I’m wearing them.
Did somebody say Lashes?
Yea, it’s safe to say I LOVE lashes and when I saw sales on lashes I was there. There was an Ardell lash sale 8 for $20 with a free lash glue. I also picked up 2 packs of lashes from LA Splash for only $5 each, I was wearing a pair of those lashes to the show that I purchased last year, great quality. I’m set on lashes for a while, maybe.
I have way too many brush sets from Sigma so this year I needed a cleaning solution only. I was recommended to try the Sigma Spa Cleaning Mat instead of the glove they have. It’s easier to use and will help you clean all your brushes much faster. Just set it down in your sink and wash away. They also gave the first 100 Sigma pro card holders to check out, a free 3DHD Kabuki brush which I was about to purchase to try out.
Artist Couture by Angel Merino
You may know him as Mack_Daddyy on Instagram, a super talented MUA who’s colors stopped me right on my tracks. He was at the AMA booth and had a special of 6 travel sized colors for $50. The colors are amazing the picture does them no justice. From top to bottom, or left to right on my arm the colors are: Mermaid Fantasy, Gold Digger, Double Take, Conceited, Lickable, and Yasss!
I also picked up a couple of things I “needed” from various other companies. An Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation from Tarte. A sculpting duo from Make Up For Ever and an eyeshadow from Stila called Kitten.
Overall as always, I had an amazing time and picked up a lot of great stuff. The lines were not bad at all and there was a couple of Friday only sales, I will definatly return next year on the Pro card holder day.
