Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

Sephora_Shopping_Bag (2).jpg

 

Hi friends! While our team is spending more time at home, some of us have been doing some spring cleaning or just have a little extra time to play around with makeup, but it seems like we’ve all come across products that have been living in our drawers for what feels like decades (or maybe even longer)! This got us thinking and taking a walk down memory lane and reminiscing on our first holy grail products from Sephora.

 

In a previous thread, some of us have talked about our first purchase ever from Sephora, but we are so interested to hear what was the first “holy grail” product you remember getting from Sephora that you just could not live without? Maybe it was finding that perfect lipstick, or the first foundation that was your spot-on shade match? Or even a primer or skincare product you still swear by!

 

What’s the first-ever holy grail product you remember getting from Sephora? Show & Tell by replying below!

 

 

Re: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

I'm not sure if I can say that it is or ever was a holy grail item, but I remember going into a Sephora for the first time while on vacation with family.  My mom and I both picked out a set from bare minerals that had a brush and a powder foundation.  I believe I repurchased it a few times.  Other than that I don't really remember having 'holy grail' products early on.  I was mostly excited to try new stuff.  I did really love the SC body washes that were so bright and colourful in their own shelf display years ago.  I used them pretty exclusively for a while and would love going in to pick out new scents.  I don't have a lot of holy grail products in general, in fact only one is coming to mind, the Nars Pro Prime shadow primer.  I believe I received it in a sample bag/value pack and never looked back. Everyone was busy raving about the Too Faced or Urban Decay and I didn't get the hype.  Still use Pro Prime to this day!

I think bare minerals was my first Sephora purchase too!

I also love the seawater foundation. It looks good on my face and feels light. It doesn't leave a sticky, heavy feel in my face. It almost feels as though I'm wearing nothing. I for sure recommend this in makeup/foundation category.

Gosh, I can't remember. If I have to choose, I'd mostly likely pick the Sephora lipsticks I ordered when I first joined; unfortunately, when I go to look for those, it says no longer available. Still yet I have managed to find other amazing lip colour.

Re: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

@CuriousAboutNew Some of my first holigrail products were also sephora collection lipsticks! Such good products for such a good value 🙂

Mine was and still is the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation and the NARS matte concealer!

Re: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

@Kat1738 my first holigrail was also tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 39N Medium-Tan Neutral I first got it as a sample and was hooked for a really long time. This was my first holigrail along with the SEPHORA COLLECTION #LIPSTORIES Natural Wonders Lipstick 74 Off the Grid. 🙂

Re: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

The NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer Biscuit has been my HG concealer since it came out years ago! <333

Re: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

Liked this, gave each of my somewhat less pale sisters a sample in deeper shades; now it's their holy grail concealer, while I use a variety of different ones for different bases. 

Right! I first tried it about 4 years ago and since then...

Right! I first tried it about 4 years ago and since then I will never purchase a different concealer lol

Re: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

My first holy grail was definitely the Make Up For Ever HD (and later Ultra HD) foundation. Unfortunately, my shade was discontinued. 😞 

RE: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

man, i remember it like it was yesterday. i bought the chocolate bar palette and the sweet peach palette by too faced over 2 years ago. i still have the chocolate bar and still love it but i can’t find the sweet peach. same goes with my tarte in bloom palette! like it be nice if i could find them before dropping over 100 dollars lol.

Re: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

For sure Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Taupe

This is by far the best eye brow product on the market -- total must-have, staple, in your makeup collection. 

RE: Re: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

Still need to try it! I’m hooked on the benefit pencil! @Cobra1

RE: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

Dang this takes me wayyy down memory road. I want to say MUFE HD foundation, HD setting powder,tarte true blood palette and UD OG naked

RE: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

Hi @BrendaBT! There are soooo many first holy grail products! I was obsessed with Dior! My first trip was in 2003, I had just had my oldest son! Now 16yrs! I purchased Dior Exfoliating Scrub (which they do not make anymore) and Dior Addict Lip Gloss in a cool early 2000’s brownish/holographic shade! I wish I had them to take pictures of! What I did find out though is though for a limited time you can purchase any two Dior Dreamskin or Capture Totale items and receive 30% off the item of the lowest price! Now I want to order some! Only until 6/27!

Re: RE: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

Ooo thanks for posting this deal @ElizaPRO ! Sephora's discounts on select items are sometimes hidden and go unnoticed unless I am browsing for that product specifically. Nice to know they're doing a promotion on luxury skincare from Dior!^^

I've been highly happy with my purchases so far! the samp...

I've been highly happy with my purchases so far! the sample box I just received was WELL with getting to try things out, named brands, I also got some drunk elephant product to try out. waiting on last product of my order, an olehenriksen set! now the trials begin!

RE: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

Dr. Brandt “pores no more”. This is a really great primer before foundation or used on its own to mattify oily skin and completely diminish the look of pores instantly!

Re: RE: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

@Rachelgrof OMG YES! I completely forgot about this product but it was the first face primer I ever fell in love with! I should revisit...

Re: Sephora Firsts: What was your first Holy Grail Product from Sephora?

I think the first HG product was Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil Perversion I got a few of them for the first time in a kit at Christmas and it did not smudge on my asian lids! My mind was blown. 

 

The other one is Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta® Extra Strength Daily Peel 30 Treatments + 5 Bonus. I've bought so much of this stuff over the years and it is still a HG product.
