IMATS LA 2016 Haul

IMATS LA 2016 came and went and it took all of money with it.

Now I have to wait 364 more days until next year.

Here's a look at the damage.


Here's me and my friend taking a traditional picture under the IMATS banner (if you have ever been there then you know this is a must.

The funny thing about this picture is that in it we don't look broke even though this was taken a couple hours after the damage to our wallets.

I think we were just imagining playing with all of our new makeup.


Here's a picture of me trying to act cool, calm, and collected meanwhile I was really trying to adjust the bags to bring back the circulation to my arms.

I also visited Cici Fashion Brush. I picked up a cute heart shaped blush brush, a split eyeshadow brush, and an angled blush brush.

So here's a quick run through of how our day went.

We arrived at IMATS two hours before check-in, around 7AM, we rushed to the Starbucks on the corner and headed to the line to check-in, which by this time was already starting to get long.

Oh the line pictured below is when we were already checked in. I am jumping ahead of myself.

So after entertaining ourselves for a couple of hours we checked in and then were redirected outside where there were two lines. We picked one not really realizing the difference between the two.

We knew that we had one mission and one mission only at that was to head to Morphe Brushes first (since we were well aware of how busy they get based on previous experience).

So we ended up in the correct line to get to Morphe Brushes only to be redirected outside to wait in the Morphe Brushes line for almost another hour.

I guess it was their way of keeping things orderly.



We finally got inside and shopped Morphe Brushes and after that all the rest of our IMATS experience was a blur, only because it happened so quickly.

You would be amazed at how tired you can feel just from shopping.



We decided to take a selfie to kill some time since we starting becoming impatient.

We just wanted our brushes :)


Next up Violet Voss to pick up their highlighter palette and snatch one of those amazingly cute bags.


Of course, I went to Sugarpill to get their Pretty Poison lipsticks and their liquid lipstick.

I was soo happy that there wasn't a big line.


And of course we couldn't go by the Sugarpill wall without taking a selfie, though we really didn't get much of the wall.


Another shot of Sugarpill


Then it was time for NYX craziness. There were a lot of new items that we needed to get.


Just a picture to remember the floor plan and schedule.


We passed some of the models getting their makeup did and looking fabulous.



Of course we did other things and visited other booths but I didn't take pictures of everything, I had shopping to do.

That's it! IMATS LA 2016 in a nutshell.

I shall count the days until next year, but for now I have to get back to work and make some money to replenish my bank account.

I recorded a haul video on my Youtube channel.


The haul video is also posted on my blog a few posts back.

Did you attend IMATS this year?
