Bronzers | 2022 Editor’s Favorites

In 2022, I reviewed just over 75 different bronzers from a myriad of brands and price points. Haus Labs Power Sculpt Velvet Bronzer was one of my favorite new formulas–it had such a beautiful, seamless finish on skin. While it doesn’t look like it rated well at a surface-level, L’Oreal Infallibe 24H Fresh Wear Soft Matte Bronzer is actually quite good if it weren’t for that silly 24-hour wear time claim!

Highlighters (Over $15) | 2022 Editor’s Favorites

In 2022, I reviewed just over 70 different high-end highlighters, so there was a nice variety of products to become enamored with over the year, and while highlighting as a trend may have slowed down, it hasn’t gone away. Rare Beauty Positive Light Highlighters just came out in December, but they were just stunning applied. I also fell in love with Haus Labs Bio Radiant Highlighters, though they were quite pricey!

Highlighters (Under $15) | 2022 Editor’s Favorites

With 55+ highlighters reviewed that were under $15, I was surprised ColourPop only made up 22 of them, LOL! I adore ColourPop’s highlighters (often in the form of Super Shock Cheek or Lite Stix), but Elf Halo Glow is an excellent liquid highlighter that I really love for mixing in with foundation.

Blushes (Over $15) | 2022 Editor’s Favorites

There were just over 150 blushes that I reviewed in 2022 that were over $15, so it was on the more challenging side to narrow down my list to a manageable amount of favorites. Lethal’s new shimmery blushes really won me over this past year, though.

Blushes (Under $15) | 2022 Editor’s Favorites

There were just over 65 blushes that I reviewed in 2022 that were under $15, though most of them were from ColourPop (surprising no one!). There was also Give Me Glow’s Blush range, which I haven’t finished reviewing (many more reviews slated for 2023), which had some unusual hues!

Multichrome Eyeshadows | 2022 Editor’s Favorites

Multichromes really capture the magic of the holiday season to me. They twinkle, they sparkle, they shift, and they are so multidimensional. They work beautifully as an accent of eyeliner or as a one-and-done look, especially lighter and more mid-tone shades, but even black-based Multichromes can work as an all-over-lid shade and blended with one’s favorite transition shade for an intense, unique smoky eye. Clionadh expanded their Stained Glass Collection in August of this past year, which meant 54 new, glorious hues to delight and play with. I loved the new Earth Vibrant and Pearlescent finish. Terra Moons also consistently Continue Reading…

Single Eyeshadows (Over $10) | 2022 Editor’s Favorites

In past years’ roundups, I’ve included Multichromes with Single Eyeshadows, but this year, there were quite a few shades reviewed in the Multichrome finish… and they just needed their own post. I also thought it would be more interesting to see what “regular” eyeshadows stood out in the singles department given that there aren’t THAT many by mainstream brands. The biggest release of singles this year was definitely from Lisa Eldridge, which offered the eyeshadows in five pre-made eyeshadow palette color stories as well as refills.

Single Eyeshadows (Under $10) | 2022 Editor’s Favorites

One of the best reasons to review indie brands is to actually have options upon options of single eyeshadows to choose from. If you love building your own palettes or prefer to augment your existing collection by adding specific shades one by one, you just have to give indie brands a chance. It’ll surprise no one that Sydney Grace eyeshadows remain a staple in these year-end favorites list; every time I test new shades, I’m always like, “They’re so good, and I just want EVERY shade to be made in these formulas.” Give Me Glow is an incredible source for Continue Reading…

Cream Eyeshadows | 2022 Editor’s Favorites

I’m glad more brands are releasing cream/liquid eyeshadows–I reviewed 215+ different shades this past year–and I’m curious to see what 2023 brings. As one might expect, ColourPop did account for over 110 of those shades with their propensity to release new products, but I’m always here for Super Shock Shadows. Those are one of my favorite cream eyeshadows since trying years ago, and I’m surprised more brands haven’t released similar formulas.
