In the Moment #17: IMATS Toronto 2014 and Haul

Alright, Its annual IMATS time. See my "Game Plan" post here for tips and general hilarity.

This last weekend was IMATS. Click on the above link for explanations etc. This year, I though I would take it easy. There wasn't much I wanted and I thought I would cruise in around 10am with my press pass and just skip the whole MUFE, MAC madness. I was wrong.

Surviving Spark Sessions ft. Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer

Spark Sessions, a room full of fashion and beauty bloggers,  room full of curated tastes and aesthetic analyzers. Show me a fashion/beauty conference, and I'll show you true fear.

Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer reviews

I knew that when I step through that entrance, lock-on-target, cross-haired, fashion blogger's eyes would hone in on my outfit with fashion police beacons at the ready. I may be a lowly beauty blogger but damn it, I was going to rise to the challenge. I was going to wow the frickin' crowd. I was going to be the Queen of the Parade while acting cool as a cucumber ("I woke up like this") and with flippin' grace that's...if my face would stay on.

I am my own spa specialist, at home mask apothecarist and do-it-yourself skin fixer-upper. Since I can't spend my non-existent $$$s on pros to skin map my face every week, I will try and solve my skin issues solo by mapping out my facial in a process of multiple maskings. I bespoke skincare, people. I am the McGyver of at home facials.

My "I Have Too Many Things" Post

Find any beauty blogger and I will find you her/his "I have too many things" post (its almost as mandatory as the "why I blog" post). This, formally, will be mine.

Hello Kitty An Apple a Day Trio Balm Set review swatch

Fine. I will admit that these are cute.  My hardened basic-bitch heart has thawed slightly for these plastic apple shaped, stamped on, Hello-Kitty-faced lip balms. The An Apple a Day Trio Balm Set almost wins my heart over.

Hello Kitty's Kind of Party ft. the Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette*

*Press Sample

Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette* swatches and review

 The Hello Kitty Pop-Up Party Eyeshadow Palette* prompted me to consider the type of party Hello Kitty would have. At the very least, those attending would be party ready with these shades where nothing is too dark and nothing too smokey. Hello Kitty is a young impressionable youth and we can't have the usual b*tches, h*es, and foam jets at her shindig, so leave those back-room snogging eyes for next week at the club, ladies.
