Hi everyone!
Long time no see... I was in Sydney for the weekend for IMATS and managed to catch up with Roseanne (from roseannetangrs in youtube) and Holly (from beatideas in youtube) and Adeline (Through Beauty Eyes blogger), we had lunch at Pancakes on the Rocks =)

And I got to meet Koren from EnkoreMakeup !!

This is only IMATS's 2nd time in Sydney, and I'm sure there's much to improve on and I am so looking forward to the coming years. Unfortunately, MAC was not there. Make Up For Ever was there, though, and Ben Nye was everywhere. There were surely a lot of things for those makeup artists and those doing films and special effects - blood, body paints, prosthetic, hair, false eyelashes, books, etc.
The theme this year is Alice in Wonderland...
At Crown...
Royal & Langnickel...
OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) Lip Tars are super duper amazingly pigmented!
And Naked Cosmetics - OMG amazing! Pigmentation and texture... I'll definitely consider getting them next time
It was fun and I can't wait to recruit more people to come along for next year's IMATS! I hope it'll be even bigger!

So here's a snapshot of what I hauled...
Note that some are for a friend & for my sister =)
RCMA Powder No-Color


Swatch from left to right:
GOSH Pearl Shine Lipstick in Mermaid, Smashbox Snap Lipgloss, Smashbox Location Lipgloss, Smashbox Production Lipgloss

I'm loving these lipglosses... quick review while I'm at it :) non sticky, not smelly, does not make me sick (yes, way too many lipglosses make me feel sick), moisturising, not drying, glides on effortlessly, just nice!, loves the colours...

So yeah, overall it was a really good interesting and fun experience! I'm uploading the youtube video as I write right now... hopefully it'll get uploaded soon, seems to be taking its own sweet time to do so.

For those who haven't checked out those ladies I mentioned above, do so... and it would be nice if you could say you got to know them through my mention here... =)

PS: I'm loving Revlon Colorstay Foundation but I'm considering getting a different shade, I somehow begin to think this Fresh Beige is slightly pink/too warm on me...

Have a great week everyone!! Talk soon ^^ Mwaaahhhh~

@ Fifi: It was indeed fun, but not as hyped up as people made it to be? I put a comment in your blog about the rcma powder ^^ hope that helps

@ Tammy: Aaww thank you! Yes, hopefully someday when you go, we all get to meet up! Who knows it's not Sydney when that happens ;)
