Ulta Haul and new product line: Essence

So I was visiting my Mom this weekend and today we dropped by Ulta to browse for some goodies.  We ended up getting some good stuff.  I’ve posted a YT video about all of it as well, so I don’t want to be redundant w/ this post.  However, I did want to go into a little more detail about some of the products more than I did in the video.  Mainly, this new product line that Ulta has started to carry called Essence.  Funny thing is that I was catching up on reading blogs that I’m subscribed to and TravelsWithEuridice did a post of the line.  I’d never heard of it and it was super ironic that I came across a post giving some insight on it.  Apparently, the line is German and was supposed to debut in Ulta stores in April, but Ulta already has it out.  The products are very affordable, like seriously affordable and with the recession still being a factor for many, this line is a good alternative to other more expensive lines that carry like products.  They even have a Konad knock off, which of course I had to get.  Even funnier was that I’d be browsing around before I purchased my Konad to see if I could find it anywhere other than online and I came up with no luck, until of course I already have mines and wasn’t looking for it anymore and say the Essence one.  Anyhow, I’m pretty excited about this line and look forward to getting some more things from it.



Don’t forget to watch my video and be on the lookout for swatches of the polishes!
