IMATS Toronto 2010 & Haul

 L-R: Me, Fiona, Sheryl, Sandy

This year was my first year ever at IMATS. I went with my YouTube friends Fiona Man whom I've mentioned in past blog posts and Sheryl (Pincstuff on Youtube).  I also got to meet another Toronto YouTube Guru Sandy (aka: Sanderlees) whom i got to spend most of the day with.  Be sure to check out their vids on YouTube by clicking on their names!

I felt a little overwhelmed when I got there as there was so much to see and buy.  I was actually well behaved and only purchased what I thought I needed and made sure not to go over my budget.  Below are some pics of my adventures and what I ended up buying.

OCC Lip Tars of course were the rage.  Check out my full review here on Makeup Junkie !
Crown Brushes had sooo many brushes!  I wanted to buy some but figured I have a lot of these brushes already.  But the prices were so cheap and worth buying if you needed them. 
 Here's a pic of Elessa aka: Pursebuzz and Koren aka: EnkoreMakuep doing a giveaway in which Fiona won so many prizes!  Check out Fiona's haul and prizes that she won here!

Here's Fiona after she got her eye makeup done by Koren

Meeting Elessa (Pursebuzz) for the first time.  She's such a beauty and super nice too!

Elessa (Pursebuzz) and me meeting Koren (EnkoreMakeup) for the first time.  Love him!
Check out his website here and YouTube Channel here.

 One of the highlights of my day was attending Kandee Johnson's Q & A.  And right after I got to meet her at her meet n greet!  She really is as sweet in person as she is on the camera.  We briefly talked about our baby bellies :)
 Check out Kandee's blog here.
And if you haven't seen any of her YouTube vids I highly recommend checking her out here.

 Crazy lineup to see Kandee!  I was lucky to be #5 in line! :)

Kandee's mom and I.  They could pass for sisters!  She's just as sweet as Kandee :)
And finally here's my little haul...
Embryolisse Creme Lait, Face Atelier Foundation in #6 Honey, Royal & Langnickel Concealer brushes and lash comb, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Clear, Roque Cozette (Kett Cosmetics) Tumblers for my makeup kit (got a free bag too!)
Looking forward to next years IMATS!


  1. Great pics! It was my first time going this year as well, I had so much fun. I agree, it was a bit overwhelming and I missed out on buying some things I wish I would have, but I know how to be better prepared for next year now.

  2. Yeah I wished I had bought more things but I had a budget :( Next year for sure I'm gonna go all out!

  3. Wasn't that some lineup to meet Kandee!?! You were lucky to be in front!

    Best, Lisamarie

  4. Yeah as soon as she was done her seminar I bolted to the Makeup Artist Magazine booth! :)
