WINNING #5: MoYou image plate

Ok, I have a few other articles I actually needed to do first, but I haven’t finished the photos for those yet, so I’m going to show you my lovely new MoYou Imageplate!

If you follow MoYou on Twitter, you might know they have regular trivia contests, where you answer a series of questions and they pick 5 winners! I answered 5 questions about famous internet cats (LOL!) and was allowed to pick one of their Kitty plates 🙂 I’m a fan of full nail images, but the Kitty plates didn’t have them unfortunately. I’m still very happy with my 04 plate though!

..and especially if it contains such a gorgeous item! The packaging is a sleek matte card stock, with a lovely vintage-y print!
And when you slide out the image plate…

A closer look at the designs:

MoYou_Plate_Kitty (5)Ah, don’t you just love these? After this it was time to check the stamping quality, of course! I took my trusty stamper I got from BornPrettyStore, and used a card to scrape off the polish. I used Essence’s LOL as a basecoat (the green) and stamped using a red polish (can’t remember which, but no special stamping polish), and this was the result:

And at only 5 pounds per plate, I think these are a great deal!

WINNING #2: Urban Decay Flushed Palette (fake)

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I won a sh*tload of prizes the past few weeks! The first was a nail polish set (I still didn’t make proper pictures) that already featured in a NOTD, from IOnTrend, and this is the second!

It’s the Urban Decay Flushed Palette (a fake, though, but still gorgeous) with a bronzer, highlighter and a blush! I won this lovely giveaway from Femketje, I read her blog pretty much daily and I love it! 🙂

Now, onto the beautiful palette:

I don’t have the original, but this already looks incredibly luxurious! The lid is secured with a magnet, it stays shut very well but you don’t need a lot of force to open it. And when you open it, you’re greeted by these beauties:

(sorry, pic should’ve been lighter. With constantly changing light conditions and me not being able to change the brightness of my screen I don’t have full control over this 😦 )

At first I was afraid that the colours would be too intense, but when I swatched them on my arm, they were pretty light:

From left to right I swatched the bronzer, highlighter and blush with my finger. I’m actually too tan on my arms for the bronzer at the moment! The highlighter gives a beautiful shine and the blush is lovely and subtle. I never really wear blush because I’m already quite flushed in my face and I’m afraid it makes me look like I’m really warm all the time, but this one is just perfect 🙂 The bronzer doesn’t really show up on my skin, but it’ll give me a lovely bronzed glow in the winter!

Overall, I’m very happy with this palette, I didn’t have anything like this yet, and it simply looks and feels amazing!
