Mini IMATS Haul

This weekend I was very fortunate to get to go to IMATS for my 3rd time in a row! I can't believe that pre-sale tickets sold out online, thats crazy! I was considering not going because I had already gone to the Makeup Show in February and I've been trying hard to not spend so much on cosmetics. I've been doing a lot better, but I still get an itch when I see a sale. For instance I recently got items from the MAC Surf Baby collection, and I just ordered the Tarte True Blood inspired palette, I know I don't need it, but I'm a big True Blood fan! Anyway, I didn't go crazy at the convention this year and I'm perfectly content with what I purchased, yay!

My friends and I were pretty much done after an hour and a half, plus it was my boyfriend's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) competition the same day and I wanted to make it in time for his first fight :-)

Here are some pics and some swatches of what I got:

2 NYX concealers, 2 NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams,
2 NYX Mega Shine Lip Glosses, and 1 Studio Liquid Liner in Electric Blue

From left to right, top to bottom: Liquid Liner in Electric Blue,
Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp,
Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam,
Lip Gloss in Natural, and Lip Gloss in Juicy Red

88-palette in Warm Colors

A few Miss Adoro Lashes

Cute Brush Belt for $10 bucks!

Some awesome samples from Sigma Beauty and Too Faced!

These are swatches of the mini sample palette from Sigma.
It includes one color from each of their new palettes (Dare, Bare, and Flare)
The pic isn't that great, but the shadows are pretty pigmented,
and they'd look even better over a base.

Reviews on the products coming soon!
