$1.99 For An Eyeshadow Isn't Just Once Upon A Time - Essence Fairytale Eyeshadow in Fairy Berry and Humpty Dumpty

 Essence Fairytale Eyeshadow in Fairy Berry and Humpty Dumpty.

So for all my European friends who pout when we US girls flaunt our Wet N' Wild hauls, all you have to say is one word to throw the beauty bargain trump card back in our faces: "Essence."

Essence products are so cute and fun, and most importantly cheap!  Ulta carries some products, but their stock, or at least in the stores by me, are rather limited.  When I see a display, I ravage it.

That's exactly what I did recently when I saw the Fairytale limited edition collection display at my local Ulta.  I purchased 2 eyeshadows, 1 gloss, 4 nail polishes and 1 glitter eyeliner.  The eyeshadows are just such pretty fairy shades.  This soft purple and steely silver don't looked muddy on the eye.  What I like about these shades is that they are soft, girly and totally say spring without being pastel.

Haul Holla! What'd You Get This Week? Vol. 001

Part of my haul this week.  Can't wait to try these!

Holla!!!!!!!  I decided to start a new feature at Beautyburg called Haul Holla!  I love sharing hauls on Makeupalley.com, so I thought why not do it here.  Big or small haul-er at meTell me what you got, what you didn't get or what you want!

Earlier this week I stopped by Ulta, and I was psyched to see a new Essence display!  I picked up all the nail polishes, 2 eyeshadows, 1 glitter nail polish and a lip gloss.  I love how everything is under $3!  You can't shake a stick at that.  I also finally ran across a full size display of OPI's Katie Perry collection, but it had already been stripped.  I picked up a full-sized Not Like The Movies (last one).  Ulta's line had a cute set of mini polishes called Under The Sea.  Some of these colors look awesome, and I can't wait to swatch.
I also wanted to share some photos from a great day I had at the beach.  We had a delicious meal (set your stare to drool for pics below) and saw the funniest little dog chillaxing in a child-size beach chair.
