IMATS NYC 2015

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of going to IMATS in NYC this year. I've always wanted to go to New York and was unable to attend the Toronto show last November. IMATS NYC is on from April 10th-12th. Who's all going? Any tips, tricks or advice for attending IMATS and/or visiting NYC?  :)

@@SassyPeach @@zadidoll Can anyone get in, or do you have to be a professional in the industry?

 

On the Friday it's "Pro Night" which means you have to be in the industry but on Saturday and Sunday anyone can get in.

Anyone care to shed light on which is better - IMATS or TMS (The Makeup Show)? I only want to spend money on a ticket to one. TMS looks like it might have better confirmed brands.

IMATS is open to everyone pro and non-pro. NYC and LA have pro days which is Friday and only pro card holders are allowed.

 

The Makeup Show and Cosmoprof as well as ISSE are all pro only and you have to prove you're a pro to be let in.

Yes but pros include bloggers, at least for TMS, right?

No. Bloggers are considered as press and are not allowed at Pro Night or Pro Events.

Went to IMATS on the Friday Pro night and it was significantly better than going on the busier Saturday/Sunday days.  The time for shopping was limited but I got to meet a lot of makeup junkies and interesting people with less crowds.

 

Gone are the days when you were able to go to IMATS and haul products at a significant discount for your kit.  Everything seemed to be at prices that are “regular” discount prices… Like ULTA’s 20% off coupon price.

 

Either way, I picked up some goodies… not much, but enough to make me go home happy.

 

Sigma goodies:

Lit Costmetics partnered with Vargas and he exclusively sold a waterproof lip glue where you could adhere glitter and have glitter lipstick that you can eat /drink and it stuck!!  This stuff lasted ALL NIGHT! Right through dinner and two margaritas!!

NYX was there... and I got the Ben Nye poweder at Vargas's booth:

This, is not my photo... but I fogot to take one cause I had my bottle in the bathroom already... Beautylish was there and they specifically sold Bioderma only - the large bottle was $19 and you got the smaller bottle... free.

And here are some awesome people I got to hang with!
