Meilily IMATS Haularama!
Just wanted to share my haul from IMATS 2009, the International Makeup Artists Trade Show held in Los Angeles. I was there on Day 2 and picked up a satisfying budget-friendly haul. It’s a small haul by any means, but, I didn’t want to go overboard, given the economy right now! You should be proud!
Make Up For Ever (MUFE) offered 40% off at the show, and most exhibitors offered at least 20-30% off! So here’s what I picked up:
- MUFE Diamond Cream in shade 4 Flesh
- MUFE Empty 3 Pan Palette
- MUFE Diamond Eye Shadow in 308 Diamond Night Blue
- MUFE Eye Shadow in 167 True Blue
- MUFE Eye Shadow in 144 Periwinkle Blue
- Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour in Glisten (“pale peach/coral shimmer”)
- Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour in Burning(“bright coral with subtle violet shimmer”)
- Mehron Cheek Cream in Bronze (~50% off!)
- Royal & Langnickel Tri-color Nylon Kabuki Brush – Small Dome (50% off!)
- Royal & Langnickel Tri-color Nylon Kabuki Brush -Medium Angle (60% off!)

As I mentioned in Meilily IMATS highlights Part 1 and Part 2, I really enjoyed seeing Maxi from the TV show “Blush,” who was promoting Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC)! Maxi was great in person, and I got some lovely OCC loose pigments, which I plan to use as blush/highlighter…
Of course, I also had to get some Make Up For Ever products at discounted IMATS prices! Though I didn’t splurge like many others who attended IMATS, I do like what I picked out.

I got to see Mehron cosmetics, and they had excellent prices at the show – $5 for cream blush! Will need to review and post detailed pictures of the Mehron cream blush I got…
Definitely one of the biggest highlights of the makeup show was finding these synthetic kabuki brushes at the Royal & Langnickel Brushes booth – they were amazingly affordable!
These crimped nylon kabuki brushes were only $6 any size at IMATS! I don’t know why my Stript Synthetic Kabuki Brush retails for $38, but I’m glad I found some affordable cruelty-free brush alternatives!
Btw, since I had such a blast checking out all the makeup and skincare exhibits at IMATS 2009, I’ll also be attending the Face & Body Expo coming up in July! Hope to see some of you there!
Hope you enjoyed these haul and product photos! from Meilily
P.S. Becca Cosmetics is going to be at the Face & Body Expo, offering 30% off + gwp!
