🥇🏆🥈🥉🏅 THE HOLY GRAIL THREAD

🏆🥇What are your HG products of all time? 🤩😍 All categories! ( Hey, is it Liptember 😬?!)

 

Share all your must haves from years ago, current and newer ones. I’m sure we’d all love to find new favorites that we can add to our rotations. Mention it all! Add whatever category may be missing too please. No need to do just one per category but feel free if you are that disciplined! We could try! I could not. 😭 These are what I immediately reach for and use constantly. Can’t wait to see everyone’s Best in Show, 2, 3, 4…!

I’m gonna need a bigger boat! 😂But also if I knew I could get by with just this basket… 🥹. Somehow we’re always looking for the next best thing and a new HG! Just me?! 🤷🏻‍♀️

Re: 🥇🏆🥈🥉🏅 THE HOLY GRAIL THREAD

@Sunnysmom ,

Hands and body-  #1. Holy Grail for me: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Minis (Not just the minis).  This is so important in healing, repairing my skin, and also preventing problems.  It really works for me.  There are great Sales on this during the prolonged Holiday Season.  The very best time to buy from Sephora or Ulta.  FAB had a great Sale this Spring.)

 

Lip Care:  sara happ the lip slip, the luxe gloss.  I use this to coat and prevent my lips from peeling.  

The Bite Agave Lip Products are my favorites for lip care, but are no longer available to purchase.

 

Concealer:  Holy Grail:   Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Long-Lasting Undereye Concealer (available from the Lancome site.)

 

Skincare:  Peace Out Salicylic Acid Acne Healing Dots  (I buy the 40 Dot packages.)

 

Fragrances:  #HERMES Le Jardin de Monsieur Li,   AERIN Waterlily Sun

 

 

 

Re: 🥇🏆🥈🥉🏅 THE HOLY GRAIL THREAD

Re: 🥇🏆🥈🥉🏅 THE HOLY GRAIL THREAD

@faeriegirl ,

Great job of putting your lists together!

Re: 🥇🏆🥈🥉🏅 THE HOLY GRAIL THREAD

Love to see your amazing list @faeriegirl  thank you for sharing with us! ğŸ’ž I forgot about the Farmacy lip balm, how could I! Lol It’s by my bedside! 😆  Love that we share many favorites. I have debated the CDP concealer. Wonder how similar to Chantecaille it is. Have you tried both? Yay to Merit, Ilia! 

Re: 🥇🏆🥈🥉🏅 THE HOLY GRAIL THREAD

@Sunnysmom  I have not tried the Chantecaille. They look so similar.

Re: 🥇🏆🥈🥉🏅 THE HOLY GRAIL THREAD

They do @faeriegirl . I’ll have to check out differences sometime . 

Re: 🥇🏆🥈🥉🏅 THE HOLY GRAIL THREAD

@Sunnysmom Very cool thread! I will be sure to pick out some HG's!! 

Re: 🥇🏆🥈🥉🏅 THE HOLY GRAIL THREAD

Can’t wait to see yours @Mellmars1185 ! 😍
