IMATS Experience10:18 AM
I can't believe that IMATS was already several days ago!! I'm still trying to catch my breath from it all. I thought I would give you a brief look at what I experienced at IMATS. I got there at 9am, the earliest I've ever gotten to one of these events and I'm so HAPPY I did!! There was a huge line out the door when I arrived, but I only waited in line for 10 minutes before I was inside.
This was my view as I waited outside.
My view on the inside. The face makeup is amazing!!
Meet Melissa!! She's a fellow YouTuber and we've been commenting/talking for a few months now and I was so happy to meet her!! As soon as I walked to the first stand I meet Melissa and her sister and they are both so sweet, it felt like I was hanging out with old friends!

It's very RARE that I have a fan girl moment, but I did!! I met xteeener from YouTube & she was as sweet in person as she is in her videos.
Here's a look at what some of the crowds looked like. I think NYX & Inglot were the most popular booths this year. I waited for 40 minutes at Inglot!
I didn't actually meet her since the line was so long, but so many people told me how sweet she is. Plus she is even prettier in person!! I did buy several of her nail polishes though. =)
Any other Face Off fans?? Athena Zhe from Season 2 was at Graftobian.
Stila had some models/dancers around their booth.
Here are some of the works in progress that I saw at the Student Competition Stage. The black/white one is my favorite.
Overall I really enjoyed IMATS this year. The bigger location and getting there earlier really helped me avoid the crazy crowds and regular chaos.
Tomorrow I will show you my haul!!
