Its officially time for a “no-buy” policy {mini-recap of IMATS haul}

IMATS purchases
That’s it, no more beauty product purchases until I start making a dent in a few of these products! For someone like myself who isn’t a makeup artist I have way too much makeup. I guess that’s why I have a beauty blog, addictions can be a bad thing on the wallet! Perhaps its time for a beauty blog sale? But just so you all know, writing a beauty blog is my hobby thus I don’t reap the benefits of a paycheque, nor am I paid for my reviews, and although I do get products sent my way periodically I purchase the majority of my items. And now I know that IMATS can be bad, very bad on my finances. But very good because I got to meet lots of beauty bloggers and product reps. (A post will follow with a recap of the event) Here are all the items I purchased and most were discounted:). At a later date I will post reviews & individual pictures. If there are any items in particular your interested in me reviewing let me know:
Crown Brushes-a few
Eve Pearl; the Eye Pallet (Pretty ‘n Pink), Blush Trio (Sassy Cheeks), Kisses of Pearl lipgloss (Baby Doll/Honey Bunny), freebie~Kohl lip liner & Brush Combo (Cosmo)
Face atelier-lipgloss (Prim rose)

Kryolan High Gloss (Crystal Rose)
CoverFX Mint Glaze~freebie

For further info on any of the above click on the image & will link you to their respective sites.
Anyone else at IMATS that I didn’t get to meet? What did everyone get?

    Monica, Eve Pear&#39;s product review please! I wanted her salmon concealer trio but they didn&#39;t have any on Sunday. I should have bought it on Saturday. Oh well! :-)<br /><br />Great meeting you too

    Hi Fiona, Nice meeting you too!<br />Hi Halifax, I so wanted the Eve Pearl Salmon concealer that was on the top of my list! But they only had the trio left &amp; I didn&#39;t want to spend the $$ on the trio because I only need that one shade. What did you get?

    Hey Monica, thanks for dropping by my blog. :) Nice haul!<br /><br />Good luck on that no-makeup buy. I was on one before IMATS and failed miserably LOL.<br /><br />I would&#39;ve loved to meet up with other beauty bloggers but I didn&#39;t even know that there were so many of you guys. I&#39;m so out of the loop with the Toronto blogger scene!

    Hi Kate, So far so good with the Embryolisse! But I&#39;ll give a few weeks before I do a final review (as I do with other products just to make sure there&#39;s no reaction). Its not thick but its hydrating &amp; skin feels &quot;healthy&quot;. But it does contain mineral oil &amp; shea butter so I would say Oily gals/gents might have an issue. Not sure where to buy! I&#39;ve heard or
