PAMPADOUR TAKES THE IMATS!

image

On Sunday, Team Pampadour headed into NYC to attend the famous IMATS. Our resounding conclusion? Definitely worth the hype! Follow the jump for highlights and photos from our Sunday Funday 🙂

The line at Lime Crime was absolutely insane. It was out the door of the giant convention center! Once we got our hands on some of the products, though, it was clear to see what all the fuss was about. From the lipsticks to the shadow palettes, this line is one of a kind. Bright, vibrant colors, super pigmented and so long lasting it’s crazy, this is one of our new obsessions!

The NYX station was, obviously, a madhouse. The people working at that station handed out buckets, and LOTS of people managed to fill theirs up! It was kind of shocking how much makeup they were buying!! The selection was great – so many different shades of eyeliner, Matte Lip Creams, foundations, etc. At a solid discount, it was definitely a great day for bargain hunters.

I’m not a big falsies person, but I can appreciate a great deal when I see one! Ardell had a giant wall filled with false lashes (they said many styles were already sold out). The deal was 6 pairs for $20! Clearly, people stocked up.

The selection of brushes at BDellium Tools was incredible. Who knew there were so many different types of makeup brushes?! Everything was lined up so beautifully, it was pretty irresistible. Would probably say the same for Sigma, but the line to approach their section was so long we couldn’t even see! Tons of people were lined up, waiting to meet YouTube star Carli Bybel.

We couldn’t resist picking up some OCC Lip Tars!! Fifty percent off, woo hoo!

There were demonstrations, tutorials and makeovers all over the place! IMATS was truly beauty lover heaven.
