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 haven't used it in years (and it looks like it's not even available anymore), but I used to always buy benefit's brow zings palette from sephora. I see there's a deluxe version with multiple shades that they still make, but this one had a single color of powder and a tinted wax.

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

Man, my first holy grail products were:

1. boscia's Tsubaki Cleansing Oil-Gel

2. Korres Pomegranate Pore Blurring Gel Moisturizer 

I had terrible skin all throughout my teenage years and for the better half of my twenties. One day, I was at Sephora with a friend who was shopping for make-up. She kept encouraging me to get a foundation but I didn't feel confident using make-up without first taking care of my skin. One of the Sephora reps did a skin test on me and recommended the above products. They truly were the best things for my combination skin. Within 1-2 weeks, my skin did a complete turn around and seriously, for the FIRST time in my life, I had consistently, clear skin. Wow.

 

I'm in my 30s now and (just like momma always said) a lot, including my skin, has changed lolol. So I'm using different products now but I always credit my OG holy grail products for my initiation into the world of Sephora.

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

Definitely the FAB Pure Skin Cleanser! It’s gentle but effective and just sets my combination skin up for the rest of my skincare routine. I love it 💛💛💛

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

My first holy grail product from Sephora was the Original Beauty Blender. I used to save up every check to replace my beauty blender. It was the only beauty sponge on the market at the time. 

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

Same. Although every time I try any others, they just suck in comparison. I exclusively use BeautyBlender. 

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

To be true to the Sephora challenge, I'll say a Sephora product that is truly a holy grail for me: SEPHORA COLLECTION Long Lasting Eyeliner High Precision Brush 01 Black !

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

Ok, this is tough!! I don’t know about my first HG product, but I do remember my first product purchased from Sephora being a Sephora collection matte red lipstick because I wanted to be like Taylor Swift (we’re the same age, so that’s been QUITE some time ago 😅)!!

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

My first holy grail from Sephora was a finishing powder by make-up forever.  I used if for many years but have since found other powders that I enjoy using a little better. 

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

My first holy grail from Sephora was and still is the stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Intense Black

I've been using it for about 8 years and I'll never use a different one!  I really hope they don't discontinue it

 

Other holy grail products are the SEPHORA COLLECTION Luxe False Lash Flare and the SEPHORA COLLECTION House of Lashes® Eyelash Adhesive White (the super glue for falsies!)

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

My first HG product from Sephora is Buxom Full-On™ Plumping Lip Cream Gloss White Russian The best Nude gloss w/o shimmer for me.

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

Sugar Rose was my first holly grail product. I loved the color and the way it felt on my list. I still use it today!

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

Fresh Soy Cleanser. I got a mini set of Fresh as a B-day gift, I think, and it just clicked with my skin instantly. My skin gets easily sensitized, and the affordable cleanser I'd used for years was giving me rashes. I rotate my skin regimen these days, to avoid the issue, and Fresh is the only thing I can use year 'round if I want, though usually just use it for 2 rotations/yr. And if ever I'm having a rashy phase, i go back to the Fresh Soy to clear it up. 

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

@heavyhedon fresh Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash 5.1 oz/ 150 mL is not the first product but was the first cleanser I ever got as well and it's still one of my favorites. I also have very sensitive skin and it has always worked for me 🙂

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

@BrendaBT   -   To be quite honest, I do not recall my first Sephora purchase though I believe my first Sephora EU purchase was in Spain and I picked up some Sephora brand face wipes.  As for HG product status, I would have to say it was a set of four products - DE Lippe, DE Marula oil, DE B-Hydra and DE Peeke Bar.  The reason ther are four - I purchased all four at the same time and they were the first "adult" skincare line I was able to use in two years.  Now, I always have my Lippe with me and my Peeke bar waiting for me when I wash my face in the morning.  I've branched out a bit into other DE products and Biossance as well.  Still use and love B-Hydra and the Marula oil.  

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

ABH Brow Powder Duo. On my first ever trip to Sephora in 2014/2015, I got a sample of it and fell in love! Bought it the next week. Been using it ever since.

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

@samkeaysxo I love it! Such a good product 🙂

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

Wow, I’ve been shopping at Sephora for years so this is hard. I’d have to day my very first holy grail was the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion. To this day, I’m impressed by how it works. And I still use it. I’ve tried other eyeshadow primers. No product had outperformed this one.

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

First holy grail product has to be supergoop glow screen! It leaves your skin looking amazing and has SPF in it! What more could you want?! 💛

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