New at ULTA? (Or maybe just new to me??) - Essence

While wandering through Ulta this past weekend, I noticed an end-cap in the "drug store" section for a brand called essence.  Now, either I haven't been to Ulta in a while (which is true!), or else there is a new brand in the house!   Their webpage is great and gives alot of detail about each of the products.  There is even a page dedicated to their new arrival at Ulta!  My favorite part of all, though, would be the fact that they don't test on animals!

Talk about a bonanza!  There were so many bright and shiny colors on this display I didn't know what to do!  And, the about a steal!  The nail polish run at $0.99 a piece, and I think the most expensive thing I saw were some of the eyeshadows and quads which ran around $2.99-$3.99.  This display was full of fun stuff to try out - there were over 15 colors of nail polish, liquid eyeliners, pencil eyeliners, glitter eyeliners, eyeshadows, baked shadows, eyeshadow quads, approximately 4-5 different types of mascara (from volumizing to length, to both!), foundations, blushes...*phew*...the list goes on!

Now, obviously since I haven't tried this brand, I had to pick up some things to play around with.  I chose a glitter eyeliner, lipgloss, and mascara.  I am anxious to give them a try, and will post about them here shortly.  The mascara reminded me of the DiorShow tube, so I'm hoping that is a prelude of things to come (at a fraction of the price!).

Have any of you lovelies tried this brand essence?  If so, I'd love to hear!

  1. Essence was there at my first trip to Ulta, during March. I really wish I had picked up more stuff! I'll have to when I move in August, there's an Ulta where I'm going :D

  2. here in belgium we've had essence for a couple of years now. the prices are unbelievable!
    some products are not very good, but others do work fantastic. But at those prices, you can experiment a bit and find out what works for you!
