I was in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago to visit Christine and Sheila, and it just so happened that IMATS was that weekend too! Here are a handful of my favourite pics from the 4 days I spend in Vancouver, but the link to the photoset is at the bottom!
I didn’t take very many pictures since other than the ocean, Vancouver does look a lot like Calgary building-wise, haha.
We were a little later than expected, but we made it!
The NYX booth was by far the prettiest. So many eyeshadows! I’ve never seen so many in one place before And this was just one corner of the stand!
Every time I look at this pic, I marvel at the makeup. The lines look so crisp!
Kelsie and I on the Burrard Inlet cruise 🙂
Sheila and I waiting in the 2.5 hr long MUFE line! We lucked out, it was even longer after we went through! I’m only wearing eye makeup here as Vancouver made all of my skin peel 😦
Christine and I on the Burrard Inlet cruise. As I pointed out to her, we finally have a pic where we are both looking at the camera, AND where you can tell we are two different shades!
It was actually gorgeous and sunny our last 3 days in Vancouver. Pretty lucky 🙂
We got to the show 15 minutes after it started and this was the line already! Thankfully there were 4 of us so we rotated who had to stand in the line 🙂
I felt seriously accomplished once we were close enough to see this sign 🙂 40% off was totally worth it!
I beg of you, swatch BEFORE you get to the table! Although Christine and I did stand here for a while as we waited to pay and swatched the Aqua Creams and glosses (and made my shopping list bigger).
The Ben Nye products were really nice but I was not allowed to buy eyeshadow 🙂
I think the other half of him is a blonde she-Viking. Haha.
IMATS had a whole lot of glitter 🙂
I’m always fascinated by naked sets but thankfully I hate loose eyeshadow so as pretty as these were, I wasn’t tempted!
Yaby!! Right after I took this I resolved to pull out my Pearl Paints palette again 🙂
I have never been so tempted by something I have no idea how to use XD
The beautiful MUFE Model and her makeup! She actually helped us purchase stuff in the morning (I think she saw how sad we were about how long we’d been in line!)
Last thoughts 🙂
Kelsie making her way down to the ocean! Of course the day we were at the beach was the most overcast day we’d had all week 🙂
