I was lucky enough to be working on the MAC Pro stand at IMATS this year and my first trip there didn't disappoint! There were so many exciting events and demos going on and even though I didn't see  everything the atmosphere was electric! 

I spent most of my lunch breaks browsing the stands looking for new goodies to purchase and had my heart set on two brands in particular Hakuhodo brushes and Make up forever. I have been after Hakuhodo brushes after hearing rave reviews from makeup artists who claim the quality is second to none so despite the hefty price tag I was eager to buy a few brushes from them. Makeup forever is pretty hard to get hold of in the UK so when I knew they were going to be at the show I knew I had to purchase some of the infamous HD foundation. I decided to go for two colours depending on whether I am going au natural or wearing self tan.

Here are some photos from the Saturday!

The body painting was incredible!

Unfortunately I didn't manage to get many photos as I was working till the end of the day!

So here is what I bought:

Make up forever HD foundation in #127 and #140

Great packaging!

Hakuhodo purchases

An angled buffing brush for liquid foundation, a precise gel liner brush and the wooden handle travel set!

The quality is incredible

Too beautiful to use!

For a brush addict like me these were such exciting purchases. I am constantly trying new foundations too so I am so pleased to have finally got my hands on MUFE HD.

I have already tried the foundation and am in love so will post a review soon but as for the brushes I cannot bring myself to use them yet but will be taking the travel kit on holiday so will report back after then!

What did you buy at IMATS?
