After months of teasing, Kim Kardashian's master class with her longtime makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic went down at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium this past Saturday. The super long (four hours), super expensive (tickets ranged from $299.99 to $799.99) event nearly sold out, inspiring ticket-holders and fangirls to declare their excitement:
