Costal Scents 88 Shimmer Palette Review

I've had this palette for almost six months and I LOVE it! It has such a huge range of colours to pick from and lots of different shades of each colour! :)
The colours are very well pigmented. One thing that I don't really like is that they aren't VERY shimmery. I suppose that's personal preference though! If they were just a little more shimmery I would not use any other eyeshadow ever!
I usually only wear neutral colours but I love having the option to wear a pop of colour in the summer by putting a thin line of whatever colour I like under my waterline. These pallets are very inexpensive, I got this one for only $20! I would highly recommend this palette to anyone, no matter whether you are a beginner in makeup or have been using make up for years! it's a great staple piece to add to your collection and it gives you lots of options for creating hundreds of looks! :)

My favourite nail polishes for Spring!

These are a few of my favourite nail polishes for Spring! I love painting my nails but never have time to wait for them to dry! I always need to either put on socks or tie my hair up just when I've finished painting my nails! Haha! I'm not very good at manicuring my nails before painting them but I'll show you my favourites anyway.

I always love wearing red nail polish, there's something very classic and elegant about wearing red!
I love wearing classic red or adding a splash of glamour with some glitter polish but red is definitely the colour I reach for most! :D

Another favourite is French polish. I'm not very good at painting a straight line for the white tip especially with my bad hand (left) so I prefer wearing fake nails, that are French polished in advance! They look really glamorous and sophistacated!

I love the bright and pastel nail polish trend! I love wearing pink especially, and I love the pastel colours I got from Avon. I think pastel nail polish looks really pretty and screams Spring. Although the weather here in Ireland is much like weather you'd expect in Winter I love wearing bright polish to add a splash of colour to the dull and rainy weather we're having! I'm hoping it might get better for Summer but there's no guarantee of that in Ireland! :P
Thanks for reading! Please follow my blog it would mean the world to me and leave a link to your own blog and I'll go take a look at it! :)
Lots of Love,
Deirbhile! :)

My Birthday!

Hello! :) This is my first post so i'm not quite sure what to write about! It was my birthday last Wednesday so I thought I'd show you some of my favorite presents. :)

From my parents I got a gorgeous Eton watch. It has a pink suede strap, the clock face is rectangular with small rhinestones around it. The numbers are brightly coloured and remind me of Charlie and the Chocolate factory! haha! I love this watch, I haven't had a watch in a few years so it was kinda weird wearing a watch and knowing the time!
From my Auntie and Uncle I got four Avon nail polishes that are really pretty! I also got a mini make up bag with hot pink and white stripes with roses. :)
From my Grandparents i got lots of little gifts that i love! I got a really cute makeup bag with three make up items inside. I got a W7 lip tint which is a light red colour,  a sparkly pink lipgloss from the same brand and a 4 in 1 powder that has bronzer, blusher, highlighter and nude powder all in one.

I hope you enjoyed reading my first blog post, I promise I'll get better! 
Love, Deirbhile xx
