I thought it would be fun to do a little throwback and discuss the first high-end products that I bought! It’s really a big deal when you first buy high-end products if you’re young and not used to it. That’s why I still remember the things I bought. Let’s see which products were my first high-end products.
To be honest, I don’t think I buy high-end products for a long time though. It might be around 2,5/3 years for now. I’m wearing makeup since I was 13 but always cheaper products and definitely not high-end, which is totally fine of course. There’s nothing wrong with budget products at all. But I guess everyone still knows the feeling of buying your first high-end product. It just feels amazing and you really saved for the product you bought and that together makes it super special. Let’s discuss the first high-end makeup products that I bought.
Dimensions de Chanel mascara
My mom first gifted it to me when I was around 15 years old and it became a tradition. So every Christmas my mom gifted me this mascara. But there came a time where my mascara wouldn’t last the whole year and so I bought my first own Chanel mascara when I was like 18 years. This was the first ever Chanel mascara that I owned, but later I went on using and buying the Le Volume de Chanel mascara. I still use this one though! I can still remember the first time I got this mascara as a present and it felt amazing. I was super in love with Chanel products, but I didn’t have to money to buy something myself. So that’s why my mom thought it would be a cute Christmas gift. I was so excited when I saw that she got me the mascara and I loved it so much. That’s why I still use Chanel mascaras to this day.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Glowkit Sun Dipped
This was my first ever highlighter I bought in my life and I thought it was so expensive haha. I was super in love with this palette and I just wanted to give it a try so I saved for it and bought it. When it arrived I was more than excited and I was super gentle with it. That’s the day I fell in love with highlighters and never left the house anymore without a glowing cheek haha. I still own this palette and use it as well. I bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero glowkit very soon after it because I was so in love with the ABH glowkit. I still am to this day!
Kylie Cosmetics Koko K Lip Kit
This was my first purchase outside Europe. I never bought anything from the US so this was super exciting and I can remember I was a little anxious as well. You never know what happens during the travel from the US to the Netherlands. The 1,5/2 weeks waiting for my Koko K Lip Kit to arrive almost killed me haha, I was way too excited to wait that long. When my first ever Lip Kit from Kylie Cosmetics arrived, totally fine and all the way from the US I was extremely happy. I can still remember how happy and excited I was that day. It also made me obsessed with Kylie Cosmetics haha. Kylie Cosmetics was just established and I never missed a launch since then, so I have been loving Kylie’s products since the start of her brand. I still own my Koko K Lip Kit and I still love it so much. It’s such a pretty pink nude and I love how it looks on my lips. I think Kylie Cosmetics has the best matte lip products ever.
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
I always wore concealers from Essence or Catrice but I remember that I really wanted to try something better because these concealers didn’t really good on me (like creasing and stuff). So I went to a MAC store and bought my very first MAC product, the Pro Longwear concealer. I really had to get used to it but I immediately liked it. I’ve been using this concealer for like 2 years and it’s been a while now since I last used it. In the meantime, I’ve discovered concealers that I like more, which is nice. I definitely don’t hate the MAC concealer by the way.
That’s it! Since these moments I fell in love with high-end products and I think most of the products I own now are high-end. I’m very happy with everything I own and I love makeup very much. Moreover, I don’t want you to think that budget proof makeup is bad because that’s not the case. If you love these products, please keep using them.
Do you remember what your first high-end product(s) was? Let me know in the comments!
Hope to see you next time loves,
