Ive won a prize at Enchanting Beauty!

As I've mentioned before, Enchantra has been doing giveaways for an entire month. And I won one of them, w000h0000!
I won a NYX beautifull eyes palette, and I've chosen the one for green eyes.(my eyecolour is a combo of more than one colour, but it comes closest to green).

I told Enchantra on twitter that they could send the palette with my Konad imamgeplates. I just ordered 4 of those when they had the 50% discount bargain during a World Cup game. Saves some money and packaging :)

Unfortunately for me, The postal office(or chauffeur) was as carefull with it as a kid running with scissors....
So this was the result:
I almost cried when I took it out of the cover...I think this was the first time makeup I got was broken in the mail. And I thought it was such a waste!

I was afraid to open the palette, but it was not as bad as I'd thought:

As you can see: the highlighting colour is broken pretty badly, but other than that, theres just a little corner broken from the purple. When I cleaned everything and blew off the highlighter colour of the rest, the palette was mostly intact. It's a shame it broke, but I'm still very happy with it. I love the colours and I'll definately be using it for EOTD's soon.


  1. Hey! I have one of these! This one is very good.
    Tip. to fix the broken eyeshadow, drip some 96%-100% alcohol on the pan and let it sit. The eyeshadow will melt and re-form.

  2. thanX for the tip, ill try it on the highligh colour... I think I have 100% for cleaning bought makeup...might be less than 100% though. Need to check that.

    I havent tried it out yet, but ive heard good things about these palettes :)

  3. Wat jammer dat hij kapot is! Ik moet die alcohol ook maar eens kopen voor mijn Sleek palette, toch een stuk fijner als hij weer 'heel' is. :)

  4. Heb ik ook al vaker gedaan. Bij ons is 96% alcohol bij de drogist te koop. Oogschaduw fijnmaken, drupje alcohol erbij en roeren. Even laten drogen en dan pressen met iets. (Ik had ronde e/s dus heb een muntje gebruik met tissue eromheen). Er zijn veel Youtube filmpjes over te vinden!
    En gefeliciteerd met je leuke prijs!

  5. @amber, ach ik vind t allang leuk dat ik iets gewonnen heb :)
    @meyke, ik zal t binnenkort eens uitproberen..heb t nog niet eerder gedaan...eng! :)
