Overdue IMATS Haul

Waking up Sunday morning was a drag for me! I attended a wedding in Camarillo the night before and didn't sleep till late. I had about 4 hours of sleep but as I woke up; excitement grew on my face, as if I was going to Disneyland...lol So I headed out 60 miles on the freeway to Pasadena with no one besides me, myself and I. Crazy?! Yes!! Would I drive from Camarillo to Pasadena early in the morning again? HELL NO! haha!

Well enough of that morning, lets get on to the 
purchases I made at IMATS! 

1) Beauty So Clean Pro Package/IMATS Special $40

I know I'm not the only one who forgets 
to clean their makeup brushes. 
Using these products makes it simple, easy and quick to use! 
Knowing how fast these products clean the bacteria off your makeup and brushes BLEW ME AWAY! 

The package includes: 
*Pro size Cosmetic Sanitizer Mist - You spray your eye shadow, blush, powder foundation etc. and it kills 
the bacteria without ruining your makeup. 
*Pro Size Conditioning Brush Cleanser - It quickly conditions and kills bacteria that is left on your makeup brushes and dries instantly. 
*Cosmetic Sanitizer Wipes - Used to clean mascara wands, lipsticks etc.

I will definitely purchase this again and recommend 
this product to every MUA.

Love the pigmentation and presentation of the product. 
Unfortunately, while applying the lipstick you have to be careful not to break it. :(

Lime Crime Candy -Eyed Eye Shadow Helper

This is the best eye primer since UD's Primer Potion! I love this primer because its true to its name, it helps with bringing out the shadow more than you can ever believe! 
I will definitely buy it again and highly recommend it!

Lime Crime Magic Dust (Left to Right)

Lime Criminal 

Highly pigmented, vivid, the color is best when wet and/or 
with the Candy-Eyed Eye Helper. 
Will buy again and recommend this to anyone looking to 
stand out from the crowd!

So there you have it, my purchases at IMATS 2011 in Pasadena. 
I look forward to next years exhibitors new and old. And hopefully next year I can splurge a little more! Can't wait for IMATS 2012! Whoo-hoo!
