People I met at IMATS London : 22 June 2013

I was so excited to go to IMATS this year - not only for the chance to see and pick up products, but also to meet the YouTubers that I have been following for years.

This year is so special because a few of the American YouTubers came to London IMATS ! I have been watching their videos for so long that I felt like I was going to meet some old friends!

A day at IMATS London : 22 June 2013

Months of anticipation, and finally I was at IMATS!

My sister (@beautyorbread) & I got there at around 11am (the show opened at 10am), the exhibition hall was already buzzing!! Demo on the main stage was already in full swing, people were queueing to get into booths of popular brands like Make Up For Ever, MAC, and NYX; cash tills were ringing as people were buying crazily already, models' make up were already started at the individual cinematic makeup brands...

Getting Organized: Trish McEvoy Makeup Planner (Limited Edition)

 I have my eyes on a Trish McEvoy Makeup Planner for quite some time, as I do carry quite a bit of makeup with me everyday for general touching up and refreshing my face for going out after work. However, it is always the price that hold me back.

The tipping point came recently when Rachel Talbott (CheckIntheMirror) showed her pink makeup planner in her May Favourite video, that I said to myself, "OMG! I REALLY WANT ONE NOW!" So I popped down to the Trish McEvoy counter in Selfridges.

Drugstore Limited Edition Products: Sleek Blush Palatte & Barry M Nail Polishes


With the high end brands such as Dior and Chanel have gradually launched their summer collection/ limited edition recently, drugstore brands have launched their own limited editions too! The two brands that caught my eye are Sleek and Barry M.

 Eye Palette from Candy Collection

Sleek has launched a limited edition collection called "Candy". The Candy collection has a lip paint, an eye shadow palette & a blush palette. I am not a fan of lip paint. The colours in the eye palette are too colourful & too vibrant for my style, they are beautiful tho.


However the blush palette are the star in the collection. I am a big fan of Sleek's blush palette, I have almost every palette. The colours are vibrant & they last all day. 


This trio in Candy collection are as high quality.  Three blushes are in different textures too - cream, matte & shimmery! What a unique palette with all the textures in one place! Perfect for handbags or travel kit when you can't decide which textures or shades to pick!

Another huge part of my make up collection is nail polishes. Never can have too much, because no two shades are the same. The trend recently are playing big on textures. So when I saw this Barry M limited edition nail polishes, I just cannot resist!

From left to right: Sour Apple, Dolly Mixture, Marshmallow, Bubblegum and Liquorice.


If you have seen the feather texture collection from Nails inc, this Barry M collection is Nails Inc's dupe. The bottles have very fine stripes of confetti in them to mimic the apperance of feathers.


I have picked up three of them. I used Moire Green from & Other Stories as a base colour, Barry M as top coats.


As you can see, the effect is quite subtle, the confetti are not too intense. However, I suspect you could get a morw dramatic look if you pair with a darker base colour.


Have any of these caught your eyes yet?


Sleek Blush palette - £9.99 from Superdrug
Barry M nail polishes - £3.99 each from Superdrug
