Well, here is my haul from IMATS New York. I set aside some money little by little and thankfully I really didn't go past my budget. Yay! I actually did see some things that I had to just walk away from. They're still on my "wish" list and maybe someday I'll purchase some more goodies :)
Royal & Langnickel was not the first stop that I made, but it was still one of the most crowded booths at the IMATS. Even though Crown Brush was not present in NYC, the presentation at R&L was very impressive. Unlike Crown, each brush is pretty much packaged separately in it's own plastic sheath. I ended up picking up a cute red patent leather brush belt, a hot pink synthetic brush set (which was only $25!) and just a few small brushes that I needed in my collection. Some of these included a couple of lip brushes, a fan brush, nothing too exciting. Oh, and I also picked up a small and adorable little kabuki!
I picked up one pink Z-palette from Alcone. Three lip tars in memento, hush, and trick from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC). I just HAD to pick up the salmon concealer from Eve Pearl Cosmetics. Unfortunately when I went by, Eve was not there. So I didn't end up meeting her :( The concealer is amazing and I'll post a review soon!
At the Beauty So Clean booth I picked up their pro package which included a box of wipes, a mini sanitizer, a large spray sanitizer (not shown) and a large brush cleaner (also not shown). There is a really sad story of why they are not in the picture, but let's just say that I forgot to put the large bottles in my suitcase and they were taken away from me at the airport.... Not nice!
Last, but not least was Inglot Cosmetics. I picked up a 10 pan neutral palette, a 20 pan cool palette, a 5 pan lip palette, two lip paints, two lip creams, a bottle of duraline, eye shadow primer, and a lipstick. Whew! Inglot is amazing and I've already begun to use my stash. I'll post a review very soon!
Did I mention that all these booths were offering up to 40% off their retail prices?! Yeah!!!
Here is close-up pick of all the beautiful goodies I picked up from Inglot Cosmetics. It was definitely worth waiting in line for almost two hours!
Talk to you soon, and I hope you enjoyed my haul. Leave some comments, Please!
