Urban decay primer potion and a single UD eyeshadow...I forget the name of it

Re: curious post

My first Sephora purchase was the Nars Sheer Glow foundation. I had read that Amy Lee (Evanescence) wore it, and given that I love her and she's fair-skinned like me, I just had to try it. 😛

I used it until it ran out and haven't bought it again, mostly because it isn't as long-wearing as some of the other foundations in my collection. I still think it's a great foundation and may pick it up someday in the future.

 

Re: curious post

Aww memory lane!  My veeeeryy first Sephora purchases were a coral colored squeeze tube Sephora Collection lip gloss (back when the quality was absolutely TERRIBLE) and a refillable fragrance rollerball travel atomizer that I found in the sale section when it used to exist in stores. I used the gloss literally every day of my life so thus it is long gone.  However, I still have the rollerball travel atomizer amongst my collection and I still use it from time to time believe it or not.  

Re: curious post

This makes me feel old, but my first Sephora purchases were a couple pots of Lorac eyeshadow and a Bourjouis lip gloss that I got after a makeover. Around that time, I also bought a lot of those bath oils in fun shapes. I don't use those specific products anymore, but I still recreate that makeover look with Viseart and Pat McGrath products!

I'm another Canadian who had to journey to the USA for my first Sephora experience, long before they opened here. I went straight to the Urban Decay section, and took home a Heavy Metal Glitter Liner and an eyeshadow single in the classic shade Half-Baked. Palettes weren't a thing yet, so I smeared that all over my lids for months!

Mine was a Brush Set haha. I believe I only have one left (lost the rest) Back in 2011

Re: curious post

I had to jog the memory for this one. I don't remember the year however Sephora most definitely was years away from being in Canada yet and I was on a trip with my parents in the States. I honestly don't remember the brand, I wanna say Tarte or Too Faced but there was these solid Cheek gels that came in what looked like a little circular deodorant applicator. I bought them in every colour.

Re: curious post

@suzyo  OMG yes!!! I was obsessed!! 

Re: curious post

@GG84  Flush was the 1st blush I owned, then I bought a vault of all the colors. I still have unopened backups 😁

Re: curious post

@suzyo  I distinctly remember Exposed being my favorite! Lucky you! I havent thought about these in soo long.

Re: curious post

I was thinking about this recently and I'm pretty sure it was the Ojon pre-shampoo hair treatment. My purchase history doesn't go that far back, we're talking more than 10 years ago.

Re: curious post

I remember that too @suzyo !!! What happened to that?!

Re: curious post

@sephoraaddict918 The owner sold to Estee Lauder for an undisclosed amount and Estee ceased selling it once acquired. The former owner later created another line called Taya. 

Re: curious post

@GG84 Catch and kill? Did it compete with one of their other product lines?

Re: curious post

@fieldsofclover They own a bunch, Bumble and Bumble was gaining ground then. 

Re: curious post

@sephoraaddict918  you can still get it on Amazon or Ebay, for about $200-$500 lol
