IMATS Event Report & Gets

I'm such a bad blogger, I'm so sorry everyone! I've gotten caught up with doing summer school and hanging out with friends from out of town. I wanted to make a post of my re-cap of IMATS Los Angeles from last weekend, and also an announcement about my ParaPara panel at Anime Expo tomorrow!

ParaPara Dancing 101 will be celebrating our 6th year being held at Anime Expo! Here is the information about the panel:

Here's a silly picture of me!

 Outside while waiting in line for badge pickup at IMATS!

 While in line at MAC Pro, there was a demo going on at a neighboring booth for body art.

The outrageous crowd of people surrounding the MAC Pro booth! It was worth the wait though, their products were 20% off.

Meeting the lovely Doe Deere at Lime Crime! She was wearing a mermaid-esque outfit to celebrate their new palette, Aquatænia.

Urban Decay unveiled their new foundation, Naked Skin. I didn't stop by to try it because there was a huge mob around their booth as well! I can wait to try it when it comes to Sephora or Ulta.

Camila doing a makeover on someone at the Sigma booth. I was originally there to get something for my best friend, but they didn't sell individual brushes at IMATS! Lame!

Body art being done on a male model at the MAC Pro booth.

Overall my experience at IMATS was very positive! I went by myself actually because my friends forgot to get passes and we didn't expect them to sell out of them. It was alright though because I went in with a list of products I had to buy and it was very efficient in getting in and out. The people working were very nice and the deals made it totally worth it to go, with or without someone to shop with! I was just sad that there were so many boyfriends/partners of the women who attended, because they were clearly bored and those tickets could've gone to people who actually would've wanted to go. :( I saved over $100 because of the discounts given out, so it was definitely worth going to. I will be back in January!

Onto my gets!

From Lime Crime:
Aquatænia Fantasy Palette (x2, got one for a friend), Carousel Lipgloss in Candy Apple, Uniliner in Quill, Opaque Lipsticks in Coquette, Retrofuturist, and Countessa Fluorescent

Some more pictures of the Aquatænia Fantasy Palette (since it still hasn't been released publically):

From Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Youngblood  Mineral Cosmetics, and Purely Cosmetics:
 OCC Liptars in Melange, Divine, and Anime, Youngblood Outrageous Lashes Mineral Lengthening Mascara and Mineral Lash Primer, and Purely Cosmetics Diamond Perfect Finish Powder.

From MAC Pro and bdellium tools:
MAC Bulk Wipes, Brushes #109 and #138, bdellium tools Maestro series face brushes in #957 and #990. All of these brushes have been fantastic and I use them practically everyday!

After IMATS I went down to both Takashima stores in SGV while I was in the area. They didn't have too much but they did have some things I wanted!
Luminous Change Eyelash in Queen eye, Decorative Eyelash PLAYGIRL series in Play Sexy #2 and #5 (these bottom lashes are one of my favorites as of recent), Candy Doll Shading Powder, and Sakikkuma's Micro Fiber.

It was definitely worth the trip up!
