What does HG stand for when discussing products?

Holy grail

Social media users may refer to their favorite product as the HG, or "holy grail." These users are comparing the product they love to the mythical Holy Grail, a much sought-after cup that provides its owner with healing powers and/or eternal youth. In these users' minds, the product they're stanning for is just as desirable as the HG.

For example, a user who has found makeup that makes them look divine may refer to that product as their HG. Makeup enthusiasts, especially, use HG to mean "holy grail," as makeup serves a similar function as the "real" Holy Grail.
