Happy Friday! :D
I can't believe another week -- and not to mention, another month -- is behind us!
I hope you are all making the most out of Summer 2012. :D
Anyway, without further ado, here is my promised Part Two of my day at IMATS Los Angeles:
(Click here to see Part One.)
I was so happy to see that Coastal Scents now has a booth at IMATS!
They had a fun game -- you drop a mini-plastic disc in one of the slots and wherever it lands tells you what prize you'll get. I got a sample of African Black Soap -- I've heard so many good things about it and I'm so excited to use it!
Unfortunately, they are only available for sale online, so I wasn't able to get a full-sized bar.
I will definitely check out their products, though!
(Click here to learn more about them.)
Coastal Scents was also promoting their 252 Ultimate Palette -- the colors were gorgeous!
Classic Series Cosmetic Brushes
They had a nice selection of products to choose from.
42 Double Stack Matte Palette/ 42 Double Stack Shimmer Palette/ 10 Blush Palette/ 6 Contour Blush Palette
Think Pink Palette/ Winterberry Palette/ Forever Natural Palette/ Creative Me #1 Palette/ Creative Me #2 Palette/ Fall Festival Palette
Liquid HD Foundation in 19 shades
I also spent a lot of time at the LA Splash Cosmetics booth.
They had a lot of fun products at really affordable prices!

Mineral Eyeshadow/ Lash Splash Mascara

liquid eyeshadow/ mascara/ nail products
Confetti Nail Art Glitter/ Light Up The Night Nail Polish Collection
a closer look...
I also visited the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics booth.
This is one of the many brands I have yet to try... maybe next time, I can buy a little something from them. :)
Such beautiful colors!
CAILYN = another brand I have yet to try.
They have really good eyeliner!
I swatched them on my hand -- they dried quickly and they didn't smear at all!
The owners were so nice and so helpful -- they will really answer all your questions! :)
I also got to know another brand: Stiletto Pin-Up Cosmetics.
I got a free mini-brush like the one pictured above. :)
Their vintage pin-up designs are so beautiful!
Next stop: Morphé Brushes.
Besides brushes, they also had these scented makeup remover wipes.
At $3 each, I couldn't possibly pass them up! ;)
I got one in Green Tea.
They were also available in Aloe, Apricot, Cucumber, and Collagen.
Aaaaaah, NYX -- this is where I went crazy, haha! ;)
This is the only photo I took of the NYX booth because I got busy shopping, haha!
In the end though, I narrowed down my purchases to 6 items -- I was on a budget, after all. ;)
This is another thing I forgot to get. :/
2nd love Baked Powder Collection
a closer look...
I really, really wanted to get their lip gloss (it has 24KT gold!), but they were $20 each... :/
Next time, though!
more hair accessories...
I love how you can find and join fun games and raffles like the one from Coastal Scents and ARDELL (pictured above). :)
entrance to HALL 2
EXIT TO LOBBY
Like last year, I stayed until closing. ;)
The crowd from the morning was nowhere to be seen, haha!
You can see that everyone was so tired (but happy!).
Bye, IMATS! ;)
Oh and yup, the next IMATS Los Angeles will be in January 2013 -- in six months!!!
They are switching their Los Angeles and London shows. I think that's pretty smart because that way it won't be too cold in London and it won't be too hot in Los Angeles.
I think it's gonna be kind of weird though because I associate IMATS with summer, but I know it's still gonna be fun.
Plus, it would be nice to wear comfy boots to IMATS, haha! :P
That is it for my day at IMATS, I hope you guys enjoyed looking at all these photos! ;)
I will be making separate posts for my IMATS freebies and haul, so please stay tuned for that. :D
Have you ever attended IMATS before? How was it for you?
Did you go to IMATS Los Angeles this past weekend?
Is it something you would consider attending?
I wish everyone a happy, happy weekend!
Yay for the Fourth of July (and my 22nd birthday!) next week! :D
