Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your First Sephora Visit

The year was 1998. The place: San Francisco. I had just graduated from high school and was doing some shopping during a visit to the city before heading off to college. That's when I saw it: (cue heavens parting) My very first Sephora. It was magical, and my life would never be the same (quite literally, since I now work here Smiley Happy).

 

For today's beauty challenge, let's reminisce. Do you remember your first Sephora visit? Where was it? How old were you? What did you buy? (Did you pass out from excitement?) Show & Tell!

 

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your First Sephora Visit

I was 24 & I had a friend who worked there. I wasn't big into make-up or skincare yet. I was looking for a moisturizer and she suggested Korres Wild Rose line. I've been a fan of their line ever since! Since then, I've made countless trips to Sephora! I swear I'm almost there weekly....gotta keep an eye out for new products Smiley Very Happy

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your First Sephora Visit

I don't remember exactly how old I was....I think I was around 18 but I remember being sooooo overwhelmed by all the products and lines and now I cant wait for new things to come out so I can try them!

 

BUT I do remember my first item from Sephora---UD Ammo Palette. My mom bought it for me, and I'm on my second one now Smiley Very Happy

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your First Sephora Visit

I was 19 when I first step into my Sephora. I remember walking in and didn't know where to start looking. SO many products and my first purchase was the 3 step skincare from Clinique, my first make product was the Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation. I also signed up for BI that day as well. I can't imagine what it would be like without a Sephora.

Nope! I've loved Sephora for well over a decade- hard to recall my first visit!

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your First Sephora Visit

Oh my goodness!! Loving this!! I was 16!!! I had never heard of Sephora and as soon as i saw the sign up in my local JCP i was just like what is that and my sister told me it was a makeup store i was intrigued!! So on the grand opening i skipped school that morning! Lol, with my moms permission cause i just had to check out the grand opening!!! I got a little sample bag and was so excited!! I think i purchased an eyeliner!! I don't remember if it was Kat Von D or Urban Decay! But i was just completely blown away because i had just gotten into makeup. And ever since then the only place i ever buy skincare or makeup from is Sephora!! I was a huge awesome experience for me!!

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your First Sephora Visit

I can't remember when it was- but it was early high school for me (96-98).  My mother and I went in and she was immediately turned off by the prices (what can I say, she buys CoverGirl. With a coupon. Yes, I buy her Chanel. Smiley Very Happy ), but I was completely overwhelmed.  If I remember correctly, the store was silver and black- not white and black! That store no longer is there *sniff*.

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your First Sephora Visit

My first Sephora experience was about three years ago when it opened in a local mall.  I had never heard of Sephora before that.  In fact, one of my co-workers told me about it; otherwise, I probably wouldn't have even gone in.  I wore make-up, but wasn't really into it.  Now that I know about Sephora, I really enjoy make-up a lot more.  I don't remember what I bought; and no, I'm not sharing my age!

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your First Sephora Visit

I was only 18 a high school senior when I first walked into a Sephora store with my bestie... We were both like kids in a candy store we spent over an hour checking everything and playing with all the makeup....My first purchase was the Aqualino Pink Sugar Deodorant. ..omg that is still to date my fav deodorant too bad Sephora stopped carrying it... but since that day Ive been a Sephora girl Smiley Happy

Re: Weekly Beauty Challenge: Your First Sephora Visit

I remember very clearly! I was about 14/15 and I went in to buy the UDPP. Which I loved then. Now not so much. But I do remember being so happy with my first purchase at Sephora! And that was when the makeup addiction began Smiley Happy
