The show is a great way to see various makeup talent and has different demos from body painting to beauty makeup. It's also a good way to pick up some good bargains from various brands that have different discounts on.
I went on the Saturday. Sunday tickets are available, as well as full weekend ones. I find that Saturday is the best day out of the two to go. I enjoyed looking at all of the different demos and items for sale.
I did a lot of shopping and actually left with bags full of goodies. Here is what I bought.
|Royal Langnickel Brush Set|
|MAC Blot Powder|
|Melanie Mills Gleam On The Glow|
|Urban Decay Setting Spray, Primer Potion, Lipsticks|
|Mehron Brush Cleaner, Paints|
|Nanshy Brush Holder And Brush Set|
|Da Vinci Brushes|
|Revolution Pro Eyeshadows And Brow Pomade|
|Ben Nye Blusher Palette And Pressed Colour Palette|
I recommend IMATS as a must have visit for anyone interested in makeup. If going, make sure you are wearing comfy shoes as you will be on your feet for most of the day. Cash is King!! While many stands took cards, quite a few were cash only. So make sure you take plenty of cash with you too.
I really enjoyed IMATS this year and look forward to the next one.
