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.

    My mum is super-hard to shop for as well!

    I think I will do what my mum and me agreed, get her flowers/plants. She hated all those typical stuff and wanted something to last a bit longer, like an orchid.
    Sounds boring, but it works for us both 😉

    • the Muse

      nia omg mine too! Hard to really buy her anything! She’s a pain to shop for 😀 flowers/plants are a gorg pressie not at all boring 😀 particularly if your mum has a green thumb!

      • Nia

        Well, that’s the thing, she doesn’t 😉
        That’s why I can always get “replacements” as gifts 😀

  • MC

    I gave my mother her mother’s day gift last month. She wanted Shiseido Hydro-liquid foundation but no store around her sells Shiseido (she lives in the middle of nowhere), so I stopped and bought her the compact and foundation. She was very very happy with it. 🙂

  • Marina

    I find it hard to buy things for my mom because she never gives hints, or I always find myself gravitating towards the same things!!! This year she says she just wanted the family to make her a nice dinner. I’ve got the dessert dish 😉 Raspberry Mousse coming right up lol

    • the Muse

      sounds good to me marina can I come? 😀 I want mousse!


    oh muse these are such great ideas thank god my mom is like not materialistic. she just wants an updated family photo. and then she wants us to plant flower in our yard!! <3

    but that pur minerals set looks intriging (even though I've never had much luck with mineral foundationns.)

    • the Muse

      aw that’s lovely linda. my mum is very no nonsense no makeup, bath and body, so she’s hard to shop for 😀

      me either, minerals aren’t my bestest friend!

  • Kristina

    My mom doesn’t like bath and body much or makeup at all. So I got her a pair of Coach flipflops. She lives in flipflops from spring thaw till it’s freezing so she should love them!

    • the Muse

      hey kristina my mum too. very no nonsense when it comes to makeup and such 😀 those sound lovely!!!!!!!!!

  • dina

    got my ma skyn iceland peel pads & a bliss youth as we know it set (opted vs. phil miracle worker), a few sephora trips ago she had told me she would like some nice skincare but wouldn’t buy it for herself ~ voila, gift 🙂 oh and a an illamasqua lipstick & nail polish. spreading the beauty products 😛

    • the Muse
