You know what they say about first love? It makes you the person you are today; nothing ever comes close; you’ll always look back fondly, blah, blah, blah. But do the same sentiments apply to first loves of the beauty kind?

Being our first birthday and all, we thought we’d take a stroll down memory lane and quiz you about your bygone beauty romances. Do we still look back with fondness or recoil with horror at our naivety? Find out, and reveal yours too…

What was your first beauty love?

“The first product I remember loving is Revlon Charlie Red body spray. It was the scent to be seen with circa 1995. Anyone who was anyone was wearing it and it still brings a smile to my face.” – Sarah, beautyheaven Editorial Assistant

“I think it was a L’Occitane Body Lotion. I don’t remember which one exactly, but it must’ve been good…I’m still using the brand now!” – Ashley

“Lakmé lipgloss – it’s an Indian brand I grew up with.” – Abbie

“Definitely ChapStick®. My mum used it all the time and when I got my first one I felt so grown up!” – Julia

“My first-ever beauty love was – she says, cringing – hair mascara…hot pink if I recall correctly. I used to apply lashings of it. I think I even had the glittery alternative as well…definitely the ultimate beauty faux pas!” – Olivia, beautyheaven Admin Assistant

 “It would’ve been L’Oreal something or other. I think you always just follow suit and buy what your mother had for some reason!” – Fleur

Rimmel London eyeliner. Everyone used Rimmel in high school.” – Asta

“I don’t know about love, but the first beauty thing I bought was blush. It wasn’t as sophisticated back then though, I think I ended up with freakishly red cheeks…very subtle!” – Molly


“Oh my god! Lip Smackers. I literally had the whole collection! I used to think I was so cool because I had ten of them in a variety of flavours…how embarrassing!” – Tamara


“Impulse Body Spray. Oh and The Body Shop Vanilla Musk Perfume. Who didn’t love them?!” – Jen
