IMATS 2013 Brands Wishlist

Today I was meant to upload a review but life got in the way and I didn't have time to take the photos. Oops. The review will be up tomorrow and, in the meantime, I thought I'd tell you guys my IMATS 2013 brands wishlist.

Let me preface this by saying no, unfortunately I am not going to IMATS this year. I know. Life sucks. My friend and I intended on going but when I was struggling to find a job earlier this year I decided I didn't want to go unless I had the $$ to enjoy the experience fully. My friend's boyfriend was also wanting to plan a trip to Singapore so it was the best decision for both of us!

Also! In case you don't know what IMATS is, it's the International Make Up Artist Trade Show. It's held six cities around the world (Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, London, Vancouver and, of course, SYDNEY!). Yep, we get something here in Australia. The 2013 IMATS will be held in Sydney at the Sydney Convention Centre on September 21 and 22. 

I'm not going to IMATS, no, but the amazing Jasmine from Sweetaholic Beauty is and she said be more than happy to pick up some 'stuff' on my behalf. She gets more and more amazing every day, people! She told me to give her a list of products I'd be more than happy to receive but it's a bit hard to know so, instead, this post will just be the list of brands I'd be happy to get goodies from.

I looked through the exhibitors and I came up with the following list -
1. Bdellium
2. Hakuhodo
3. Lime Crime (MORE LIPS, ahah) 
4. Make Up Store
5. Media Make Up - Make Up For Ever

I've created that list, yeah, but I'd be soo happy to receive any goodies. I've heard so many great things about Bdellium and Hakuhodo brushes though so I certainly wouldn't say no. Surprise me, Jasmine! I absolutely love everything you gave me in our swap (check it out here) so I have no question that I'll be soo happy with these surprises too! 

And now, people, it's the big question for me - How much money should I transfer to Jasmine? I'm thinking $100-$200 but is that too much? Is it not enough? How much is reasonable considering I'm not actually going? Help a lady out!

Always look your best,
