12 Days of Christmas

Good morning my dears!

How’s everyone today? Let’s start the day off right with the 9th day of Christmas Giveaways!

On the 9th day of Christmas I believe you should be getting a few ladies dancing but ado I have none of those.

Some makeup perhaps?


On the first day of Christmas my Muse gave to me a Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System.

On the second day of Christmas my Muse gave to me two DKNY Delicious Gift Sets.

On the third day of Christmas my Muse gave to me three Milani Rock and Glow Glitter Creams.

On the fourth day of Christmas my Muse gave to me four Harajuku Lovers Snow Bunnies Perfumes.

On the fifth day of Christmas the Muse gave to me a huge haul of color cosmetics from the Body Shop Holiday Collection!

On the sixth day of Christmas the Muse gave to me a Cover FX Big Cover Up Gift Set!

On the seventh day of Christmas my Muse gave to me seven Milani Nail Lacquers!

On the 8th day of Christmas the Muse gave to me a Korres Rose Wishes Gift Set!

On the 9th day of Christmas the Muse has for you some fabulous Hard Candy Cosmetic Bundles! Although it’s the ninth day I only have five sets to give away, sorry ’bout that! This means five winners will be selected to win the following items:

  • Hard Candy Just Nails in Fishnet
  • Hard Candy Just Nails in Lava
  • Hard Candy Painted Lady in Hot Shot
  • Hard Candy Mouthing Off in Exotic
  • Hard Candy Eye Candy in High Beam
  • Hard Candy Lash Tinsel in Disco Ball
  • Hard Candy Curl Up & Dye in Late Night

Hard Candy Cosmetics

Pretty sweet right?

You know the drill but just in case you forgot here’s the deal. Comment here and follow me on Twitter and you’ll be entered to win one of the five Hard Candy Sets I have.  I’d appreciate a retweet if you can too!

A random winner will be selected and alerted via e-mail at the end of the month.

Good Luck!

The following is open to US Residents Only!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    • the Muse

      That’s ok you’re entered anyway 🙂

  • electronicfly

    /me drops jaw.

    Oh I so wish I am in the states now!

    btw Muse, did you set your layout for a “survey” thingy float in from the left? Coz it redirects to a page where after answering 2 questions, it asks you to click next, and in small text write that you’ll be entered for a sweepstakes thingy. The whole thing just seems quite dodgy to me. :/

    • the Muse

      aw sorry electronicfly trying to do my best by international readers 🙂

      hmmm I didn’t see that very odd. I’ll look into that from my ad network hun! thank you! LMK if it happens again!

      • Marina

        It actually happened to me, just to let you know. Stupid ads…

        • the Muse

          sorry marina i’ll be sure to check with my ad network! Apologies!

  • MarTina

    I was just going to pick some of this stuff up. It would be great if I could win and then add to the collection. 🙂

  • Mimsy

    I’ve been dying to try the new Hard Candy products, especially the lip stuff, but I haven’t gotten up the motivation to go to Walmart. The Walmart near me is just scary gross and the crowds are insane. It’s like a war zone.

  • Christine

    this is exciting. though, not in the states, I got friends who’ll be surprised if I win and send it over to them!

  • Kiera

    Yay! I’ve been meaning to try Hard Candy but I just can seem to come across it! This might be the perfect chance.

  • Ashley C.

    I haven’t tried any of the Hard Candy line yet – these look great! Thanks so much for doing this giveaway!

  • Etherealprey

  • Jaime @ Nails of the Day

    This is SUCH a cute set… like Kiera, I keep meaning to try it, but this would be a great way to get the chance. Thanks for the giveaway!


  • Ida

    Hi Muse, is this open to international readers also? If yes, I’d love to join. Hard Candy is another brand we don’t have here. Love that they’re affordable too. If it’s open to the US only, no problem! I still think your giveaways and your blog are awesome 🙂

    • the Muse

      hi ida! no sadly not darling but check out some of the other giveaways as I have two or three open to non US readers 🙂

  • Ally

    Hope you had fun at the parties and getting some rest curled up under your lambie (told you I was stalking, teehee <3) I have a lambie and a lambie blanket too. So soft and cuddly! It makes me hibernate during winter XD

    After seeing your reviews of Hard Candy at Walmart, I went to my nearest one to check it out in person and it was love! Though I only picked up two bottles of nail polishes since I'm on a "buy one after use up one" mission 🙁 But I will def. go back! I was impressed at the quality of their polishes! The glitter one is fun for the holidays but as for all glitter polishes it's kind of hard to take off :3

    • the Muse

      hey ally!

      They were great LOL! thanks 🙂 but I hate traveling around the city on cold nights ugh! that’s the worst 😀 when you get there it’s cool but lord traveling there is the pits! LOVE lambie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀

      I wish I could get on board with that mission 😀 I’m too diseased though! oh sorry to hear about removable yak! I’m not much of a nail girl so haven’t hauled any of ’em!

      Good Luck doll!
