The Muse Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

pink ribbon image

Hey there, hi there!

I’m a little slow today getting reviews out but I wanted to do another quick give away in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I felt a bit pressured and rushed this month getting reviews out and I’ve been quite swamped with just about everything else so my blog hasn’t taken part in much of the goings on for Breast Cancer Awareness.

This doesn’t mean that I have forgotten, far from it. Although I haven’t personally been effected by this disease my heart still goes out to those who have had to personally deal with it or who have had friends or family members effected by it.

Allow me to direct you to a few members of The Beauty Blog Network who are currently working hard at raising money for this worthy cause. Please visit the Beauty Blog Network to find out more information and how you can make a personal donation to this cause.

After careful consideration I decided I wouldn’t be doing a chip in post this year for donations as I felt a tad bit too rushed to take it all on however I have made a personal donation. If you’d like to support the Muse’s charity of choice you can visit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and make your donation, small or large, every little bit takes us one step towards a cure.

You can also help with the cause by purchasing “Pink” themed products from such companies as Estee Lauder who donate partial or all proceeds of purchases to Cancer Research!

I’m having a small give away on this post as well. You can comment below to enter and I’ll announce the winner at the end of the month. If you win you’ll receive an Estee Lauder Pink Ribbon Pin!

As always my contests are open to both US and International readers!

Good Luck and I’ll hope you’ll consider making a small donation to some charity this month to help make a path towards a brighter future for cancer research!

I got my credit card handy and ready to go as I missed the original release of Lancome Oscillation Mascara when Lancome had a sneak peek purchase a few months ago!

Damn!

But now, finally, I can have one for my very own!

I seriously can’t wait to try this mascara because I’m hearing raves all across the board about how fab it is! From what I understand the counter wait list is long so you might want to save yourself the agony right now and order it online when it officially releases this week!

Plus I got super good news for you…..

You can have one too!

Want a chance to win the Lancome Oscillation Mascara?

You can right here at Musings!

Just comment below and I’ll enter you to win your very own Oscillation from Lancome! I’ll be announcing the winner on October 22nd when the mascara is officially available for purchase on Lancome’s website!

Aren’t you happy that the contest is so easy and your Muse isn’t confuddling you with crazy Doctor Who trivia as per her past contests! I thought I’d give you a break this time and make it nice and simple! No googling skills required hehe!

For now do click over to Lancome’s site and have a visit with the Holiday Collection 2008!

Good Luck and do have a click over to Lancome’s site and show ‘em the love! The Muse would appreciate it greatly!

The Demise of NP Set, Jemma Kid, and Pixi

A kind reader, Elena, pointed out last week NP Set, Jemma Kid, and Pixi had disappeared from the shelves and was clearance’d out at her local Target!

GASP!

Could this be true? Was the Muse’s prediction of the demise of these lines at Target right?

I skipped my way to Target immediately to find out as I was very curious to see what was going on!

Super sleuth, the Muse, is on the case!

I’m unsure where Elena is located but it looks like the lines are all up and available at Target and regularly priced here in New York. I visited two Targets just to be sure but all remains perfectly safe and sound….so far.

The only thing I noticed that was slightly suspicious is the lit title header on the Pixi display was gone (at both Targets!)…..mmmm could be me jumping to conclusions but is this a hint that they are taking the display down soon?

Hmmm missing display!

Who knows but I’m definately keeping my eyes peeled for new develops as I’m dead curious if the lines will make it or break as predicted by yours truly!

Have you seen Pixi, NP Set, or Jemma Kid on sale at your local Target?

No? Think the lines will last much longer before hitting the sale bin?

Tell the Muse!
