Out And About: IMATS Los Angeles 2012, Part One

Happy Wednesday!

I mentioned on my previous post that I had over 300 photos of Saturday's IMATS to go over. 
It took hours and hours to pick the right photos to use (and to edit them), but I was finally able to narrow them down to 98, haha! I am splitting my IMATS posts into two so as not to flood you guys with photos. ;)

This is going to be picture heavy, so let's start. :D


The line was long, but fortunately, we didn't have to wait too long because they handled everything so efficiently. 
Last year's line was super long too and it also moved quickly, but I feel like it was faster and more organized this year.

Almost there!


Welcome to IMATS Los Angeles! ;)


Outside every entrance, there are two tables of IMATS bags. You just grab them as you go -- perfect for carrying around the stuff you'll buy and the tons of brochures you'll get.

Makeup brush sets again, haha!

Check out my review of Royal & Langnickel's makeup brushes here. :)

Royal & Langnickel/ MAKE UP FOR EVER

Sigma


The line for Sigma was really long!


And now we know why... everything was 15% off!

CROWN BRUSH


They have a good selection of travel sets. 
And I really like their "Brush Away Cancer" set.

Amazing prices! It's kinda hard not to go crazy when you're there, haha! ;)
I just also realized that I forgot to get a new eyelash curler, bummer...

But anyway, there are other things to see besides all that makeup and other fun stuff: the people! :D




So beautiful!







I thought this was so funny!


And then he/she turned around and posed for me, yay!


This guy, however, is my favorite!
How awesome is that pose?!

That's it for Part One of my day at IMATS, I hope you guys liked it!
Stay tuned for Part Two! :D

Have you ever attended IMATS before? How was it for you?
Did you go to IMATS Los Angeles this past weekend?

I hope you are all having a fabulous last week of June! :)
