IMATS London 2010

Attention makeup lovers!

Known simply as "The Show" in the makeup world, the London IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) takes place once again, in just over 2 months time. Terry Barber, director of MAC makeup artistry will be just one of the guest speakers at the two day event.

MUFE, MAC, Ben Nye, Crown Brushes aswell as a host of other cosmetic and tool lines will be parading their wares, in some cases offering generous discounts, in an attempt to grab your attention - and money ;-) This is the place to be if you want to learn new techniques, discover new products and play to your hearts content with new products without experiencing the pushy sales techniques often loathed in department store beauty halls.

I went this January and was left rather disappointed by the number of exhibitors present (I thought it would be bigger) and was adamant that I wouldn't return. However I've decided to give it another chance to see if the 2010 show can redeem itself in my eyes.

Date: January 30 & 31 2010

Location: Alexandra Palace, London

Wish I had moolah and could do an international 'road trip' to London for this and to meet you!

I am thinking of going but to be honest the £30 price puts me off a bit after reading the reviews from last year!
Although if we could get a group of us together it would be a laugh! x

If they are really getting OCC I am very tempted.

I really want to go to this as I missed last year's IMATS due to delays getting back from holiday. Problem is, I'm moving to France so am not sure it'll be worth the trek.

Sheenie and I are going on the Saturday. I've never been before. I hope it's better than the Glam Show - that was rubbish.

Yes.. Defo going.. It will be my first and have seen so many great YT videos on the LA ones etc. To be honest I thought the exhibitor list was quite small! CANNOT wait to get my hands on some OCC lip tars! I am actually begining saving now haha! see you there I guess?
