Make Up Forever //  Nars // Ben Nye // Embryolisse // Royal & Langnickel Brushes // HD Brows // Kevyn Aucoin

As this post goes live I will be en route to London with Tor for IMATS wooohoooo. Last year I admit I went a bit crazy and spent far too much money there and to be honest there's very few of the products I bought last year I use (NYX I'm talking about you). This year I've done my research and depending on the savings available this is what I'm aiming to buy - I think you know what will probably happen. First up is a stand I didn't get chance to go to last year is Make Up Forever and I want to try their smoky lash mascara which everyone raves about.

Then there was the stand  last year we looked at, but then couldn't deal with the crowds around the worlds smallest table - NARS. Oh I'm tell you now I'll definately be picking some things up - ideally some palettes, however this will depend on the day. Next up is Ben Nye which I am wanting to have a look at/swatch before I buy - I've seen so much hype about this powder, I'm wondering whether it is actually worth the hype. Skincare is quite limited for me this year, and all what I really want to pick up is the Embryolisse Lait-Cream Concentrate which will come in handy for the patches of dry skin on my face.

One brand which I've raved about to everyone who asks me about last years IMATS is Royal & Langnickel brushes. I bought a few blending brushes from here last year purely to get a bag, however these brushes are amazing and I've constantly been using them since buying. If I'm honest I haven't used my Crown brushes which I bought last year - so what is that telling you about the brand.

I'm constantly on the search for products to help my eye brows grow and one product which always comes up is the HD Brows treatment. However the £35 price tag has always putting me off - to be honest I probably won't buy this, but as its a wishlist post I can include it right? Finally is a product which I don't know if it will be there, however I may have to drag Tor to a Space NK to buy Keyvn Aucoin's sculpting powder - I need this, NEED I tell you.

Finally I need to have a stop off at Cos and Muji for more storage for my new Ikea Alex unit. If you're going to IMATS please come and say hello to me and Tor and if you want a FABB event to come to a city near you, let us know.
