PHAMExpo Experience + Haul 2014

Hey everyone! Yvette here with my PHAMExpo haul and review. For those of you who are makeup, nails and hair enthusiast I definitely recommend attending PHAME during the summer!

For those of you who don't know what PHAMExpo is its the Professional Hair and Makeup Exposition at the Pasadena Convention Center. This is PHAME's second year and they seriously stepped up their game. Even though this weekend was IMATS London, PRIDE, VidCon, FIFA and I'm sure so much more, PHAME had a great turn out.

Sam and Nic from Pixiwoo attended and they were the highlight of my trip. There were many Instagram faves like @lipsticknik_ and professional makeup artists like @ScottBarnes. The lines were seriously short and fast. The longest lines were definetly Lime Crime and Anastasia, those took maybe 30m to an hour to get through but besides that everything else was a breeze.

Although MAC, NYX, LIT, and other fan faves were not in attendance the professional mua favorites were there. Seeing brands like CAO and which professionals in the business know about but the general public does not was a real treat. There were a lot more vendors than last year and I know PHAME will just keep growing from here.

I just want to thank all of our subscribers and followers for supporting Ruby and I. Thanks to you Ruby and I were able to get media passes which allowed us to get early access. I was able to pick up everything on my shopping list within the first hour. If we don't say it enough THANK YOU A MILLION!

Getting my shopping out of the way allowed me to sit in most of the classes. Last year PHAME didn't have any classes so it was a real treat to see some this year. None of the classes filled up which was bittersweet. I was excited to get front row to the lash demo, contour class, CAO presentation and many more. However, I felt like the presenters wanted to see the classrooms full instead of 10 attendees. I preferred the intimate setting, we could ask questions comfortably and all of us got free goodies in the end.

I really don't have a negative review for PHAME I think for being their second year everything was awesome! The lines were short, the deals were great, the classes were educational, the vendors were all extremely nice, and the PHAME professionals were just superb! I'm excited for next year, okay enough blabber here a list and pic of my haul. Enjoy!\
