Yesterday was a big day for me--it was IMATS here in Vancouver! Hooray!! I had only been to one IMATS previously (in 2011) and didn't think I was going to attend it this year...but then when I saw that Bdellium Tools was going to be an exhibitor, I pretty quickly changed my mind and purchased a ticket for Saturday!
I didn't end up taking any pictures of the event itself, but I surely took a picture of the "haul" that I purchased!
The first booth I hit up, of course, was Bdellium Tools. I took out my list (I purchased a few things for a couple friends and a few things for myself!) and got to filling my little tray. I purchased solely from their new Pink Bambu line and am realllllly pleased with what I picked up.
Here are the eye brushes I snagged. I already have a 776--but it is quickly becoming one of my favorite blending brushes, so I grabbed a back-up!
And here are the face brushes. Now, I hardly put on full face makeup and so my face brushes typically go pretty unused. I picked these ones up, though, because they are quite different from any other of my face brushes.
While I was walking to the Bdellium booth, I noticed an Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics display! I was so excited because I didn't know OCC products were going to be available!! So that was the next place I went. Sadly the only products available were the lip tars (well...that isn't really a "sad" thing because Lip Tars are AMAZING, but I was hoping to play with some of the new OCC concealers!) and the newest Stained Gloss range was not present. However, I've been on the hunt for a couple of colours and I got them! WOOO! I even got the very last Harlot. *dances around*

|From left to right: D200, D230 (this one is SO NEAT. I can hardly wait to use it!), S150, S165, S175 and S185 (I love tiny fluffy brushes like this and they aren't very typical).|
I stopped at the Red Cherry booth and picked up more false lashes and a CUTE tiny little Duo!
I also stopped at the Royal and Langnickel booth to pick up a dupliate of one of my favorite R & L brushes as well as a new BX-65...which I own, but when I got it...I discovered it was a bit misshapen. I opened up almost all of them at the booth to make sure the one I ended up with was not misshapen (quite a few of them were so I don't know what's up with that!).
And then I *almost* forgot to check out the London Brush Company booth! By this time I was pretty hungry and not thinking straight! I picked up two of their vegan brushes and I'm pretty excited about the 2/N "Soft Bent Lip" because I think it's going to do a marvelous job at eyeliner.
As you can believe...by the end of this adventure I was experiencing slight brush fatigue! Put a vegan in a room with amazing vegan brushes and this is what happens though!!!!!! :)
Once I wash the brushes and start using them, expect some reviews. Yep yep!
Thanks for stopping by and please let me know if you have any questions! Have *you* tried any of these products? What do you think of them??
