IMATS London 2010 – In Pictures (Part 1)

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 1 - 2010

The day started well.  I slipped on a patch of ice outside Ally Pally and landed on my bum.  In front of people. Elegant-looking people.

My bag (containing my camera and lens) fell to the concrete and my fat bottom did the best iPhone-crushing impression it could muster.  Thankfully no phones or DSLRs were harmed in the making of this blush-inducing moment.

As intended… myself and some of my fellow IMATS London comrades were at the front of the queue ready for when the doors opened.  It was an EARLY start (you may have read my bleary-eyed tweets) but looking at the queues later on that morning, I’m so glad we made the effort.  Plus, it meant we made our purchases at the OCC, MUFE and Crown Brush stands before the crowds were 4 deep!

On with the show…

Phew!  If you’ve got to the bottom, well done! The rest of the photos are scheduled to appear later this afternoon.  I may have made a few purchases *blush*, and will share those aswell (if you aren’t too sick of seeing lip tars!)

There is room for improvement for future IMATS London shows, and I’ll attempt a quick review later this week.  Overall, a success, the weary but smiley faces I passed at the end of the day were testament to that.  And yes, I lasted it out ’till the bitter end!

  7. You’re pics are fantastic as always.

    I stayed right to the end too, and was rewarded by having my eye makeup done by Koren in the last ten minutes of the day! Tried to take photos of it but they’re rubbish, I just can’t get good shots of myself.

    Would have been in the opening que if I hadn’t managed to get so disasterously lost on the way there, I’ve never been in half the places I ended up, it was a right nightmare! Kept an eye out for any faces I recognised from blog photos, but didn’t spot any of you. Did speak to the girls from the London Beauty Reveiw though when they hit the OCC stand at the same time as I did.

    Really glad I went Alex Box was really inspirational…..then I got lost on the way home too………
