Late Post: Haul from Toronto IMATS 2010

Sorry for the late post! I spilled eye makeup remover on my keyboard so it's been really difficult to type. I went to the International Makeup Artist Trade Show on Saturday. My friend and I were planning on lining up there well before it opened but she woke up quite late that day. I didn't have much time to shop, I had to rush because I had to go back home then go downtown to get my hair coloured that evening. I really wished I paid everything in cash I just checked my credit card statement and almost everyplace except for Make Up Fr Ever charged me in US dollars!! What a scam!! The only place that told me that they would was Royal brushes.
I was bummed that what I mainly went there for was not there...the Parian Spirit brush cleanser!

Anyways here is what I got:
At Make Up For Ever - my guilty pleasure - where I dropped most of my $ - I thought there would be huge lineups for this but there wasn't. Everything was supposedly 40% off and best thing - no tax!

This primer set was only $70

From NYX (I wish I would have gotten more but I was running late)
That liquid liner is amazing!! They did not have the round lipsticks

From Graftobian a cake eyeliner
And OCC Liptar in Hush

From Crown Brushes - this place was the busiest of them all I had to wait forever t pay cuz they only had once machine. I gt a lot of brushes that I had ordered from Coastal Scents buaha never have to order brushes from them again!

Royal Brushes had a huuuge line as well. I only got one brush, I wasn't going to stay in line but my friend needed me to pay for her (since she maxed her credit card!)

Cici Fashion Brushes had the most cheapest brushes of them all. Downside is they took cash only. I wish I had gone to them first. A few of their brushes you can see the downside in quality but a lot of them were equal to crown/royal. For instance, their 224/blending dupe was only $2.50 while at crown they were over $6

These were $4 each. I was bummed cuz later I saw a spatula for $1

I was tempted to get Eve Pearl lashes that were on sale for $1. But everyone knows I don't need anymore...

INOA Revolutionary Red Hair Transformation by L'Oreal Professional Canada (Contest Entry)

Soo I'm about a week late with this post...L'Oreal and Matchstick hooked me up with an AMAZING hair stylist Manny from Flaunt Boutique. I got my hair done red!! On top of that I got myself some new crazy bangs. We used the new L'oreal INOA Hair Colour. I was such a bad blogger I didn't even take any pics, actually I lost my new camera...hopefully I find it soon. I didn't tell you guys this but Thanksgiving weekend I chopped off my butt length hair to right below my shoulders! I lovee long hair but it was sooo dead...I was contacted well before I cut off my hair but I gave up after weeks and weeks went by with no reply from a stylist. When I finally got the call I was more than ready to go red! I got the full treatment; haircut, coloured,, wardrobe, and photographer! This is for a contest on Facebook so I would really appreciate all your help! There are entries from 2 months ago so we are behind big time and need to catch up!
Day 1:
I got my hair coloured. I believe Manny used about 3-4 shades. Mainly the base was the darkest red and I also have some copper highlights.
Day 2:
We were praciting for the photoshoot. Manny originally wanted to do a fingerwave style. After a few shots he decided a different look would suit me better - and I totally agreed! I have shots of the finished style but I turned out really bad in them so sorry! But here is the pin curl process:

Day 3:
Manny cut my bangs, I always had side swept bangs but now they were full straight bangs! How Asian right? Only thing I worry about it now I can't leave my hair wavy since they would look weird with full bang. I also got a few face framing layers. I got my makeup done and then we were off to the photoshoot.
Here's my before and after:

My Professional After Shot:
You guys will have to go to Facebook to check it out!!! Hehe! I know I have naturally full lips but when I saw it the first time I was like WHOAA in the pic! It could definitely be in a lip plumping ad lol
