IMATS and stuff

If you read my post on Ladurée, you would have known I went to IMATS in Sydney!!!! I've been looking forward to this event for a while. This was my first time going and I really didn't know what to expect. I had the weekend pass but only went on Saturday, I pretty much covered it in half a day (would be quicker but I waited a lot). I was a little disappointed that NYX wasn't there, I was sooo looking forward to finally getting their stuff.
I got there at around 11, it was really busy and I felt kinda overwhelmed by the amount of people. Being the newbie I am, I stood around for ages trying to get closer to the MUFE stand. It doesn't matter how long I wait, chicks kept pushing in so I started to do the same - Tip #1 Push in!
Friday night we had KFC for dinner, they gave us a bunch of wet naps which I didn't end up using and I took it with me to IMATS in case I needed to clean my hands...SMARTEST idea ever!! lol I was swatching so much I had no room left on my hand, these KFC wet naps saved me from walking to the toilet - Tip #2 Bring wet towels!
Andddd here's what I bought!! If I bought more money with me, I would have kept going (lucky I didn't). Tip #3 Don't bring so much money or you'll spend it all!

List of what I bought:
  • MUFE HD Foundation in 120
  • MUFE HD Primer in 5
  • MUFE HD Concealer in 325
  • MUFE HD Powder
  • MUFE HD Aqua Shadow
  • MUFE flat steel palette
  • Inglot Lipstick 259 - This colour washes me out, looked nice swatched on my hand
  • MAC blush Peachykeen
  • Design Brush Cleaner
  • 3 Beauty Pods - These guys are very cute, it was 1 for $10 or 3 for $24

So there you go, hope you enjoyed my post. I would have loved to taken more photos but couldn't get any more decent looking photos. I'm hoping next year, I can go to IMATS again and stay longer in Sydney. I've always wanted to visit the Blue Mountains but timing has been always off.

I'm getting my new camera this weekend!!!!!! Hopefully my photos will be better quality and I can post more photos for you guys!

Did you go to IMATS? What did you buy?

  5. You got some great hauls!

    Such a shame that it wasn't as good as you imagined though. I went to Salon Melbourne earlier this year and spent too much money. They did have a huge Nyx stand though!

  12. Great haul there! I only bought a few things...my tip: have a list handy and to do this, make sure you do your research on the exhibitors that will be there. ;) Learned that the last time and this was my 2nd time there. Yeah you get better each time. No wasting time on browsing. I was disappointed that NYX wasn't there too. Love their stuff. But I know there's a store in Melbourne Central that sells their stuff. Going to check that out this Sunday.

    1. Yeah next time i'll definitely write up a list. I didn't even think of researching the exhibitors before hand, no wonder it took me so long compared to others. Oh which store in Melb central? Can I come along? lol

  15. I missed out on IMATS this year, but last year I went I had to wait a good 30 mins just to PAY at the MUFE couter - it was crazy! Glad you grab a good bunch of stuff. And tip #3 is definitely very important! ;)

  16. Ooooo that event looks awesome...reminds me of a show I watch called "Face-Off", it's really cool... aw those pods look so cute, they sell them from Korea and China for like £0.99p on eBay, that's where I usually stock up on random make-up supplies :-)
