Haul Time: IMATS Los Angeles 2013

Happy Thursday!!! :D

I finally have some time to share with you guys all the goodies I got from this year's IMATS Los Angeles, yay! ;)
(To see my IMATS Los Angeles 2013 post, please click here.)


International Make-Up Artist Trade Show
Pasadena, California
Saturday, 19 January 2013


Pictured above is my IMATS wrist band, IMATS Los Angeles booklet, and some business cards and pamphlets.

Here are all my IMATS goodies:

booklet/ O.R.G Skincare press kit/ INGLOT paper bag/ wrist band/ LA Splash nail polishes and lip gloss/ Beauty Treats makeup remover wipes

Let's go through them one by one:

1. Beauty Treats -


I got one of these amazing makeup remover cleansing tissues last year (check out my review here), and I loved it so much, I got four of them this year. ;)

They didn't have my favorite Green Tea scent, so I got them in Apricot instead.
This one smells great as well!

2. LA Splash -


I bought basic nail polish colors -- Black, Blue, and White -- from LA Splash.
And I also got a red lip gloss -- I have a ton of lip gloss, but I didn't have a red one... until now. ;)

3. INGLOT -


This is very exciting because I've always been interested in INGLOT, but I never got around to buying anything from them.
Luckily, my sister reminded me that I've been wanting to get something from INGLOT, so I got...


a face blush from their Freedom System Collection! :)

4. O.R.G Skincare -


This goodie was a freebie, haha! ;)

I was contacted by Donna from O.R.G Skincare a week before IMATS and I visited their booth the day of.
Suzie, makeup artist and O.R.G co-founder, told me the story behind O.R.G and she also demonstrated how to use their Organic Mineral Peel (this product is a new favorite of mine, it's so awesome!).

They gave me a press kit which includes a bottle of Organic Mineral Face Peel -- I will write a post solely dedicated to that and to O.R.G Skincare soon, I promise! ;)

So yup, that is the end of my IMATS haul for this year -- I hope you guys enjoyed it!
I will definitely be reviewing each item (except the makeup remover wipes) in the future, so please stay tuned. :)

Yay for Friday and Hello, February! :D
