Best in Beauty 2022 ✨

Resolutions are outdated and notoriously flimsy, but we can still reflect on what we did right in the past year and keep that momentum rolling in 2023.

When it comes to our beauty care, it is constantly evolving. Here are a few of the best products that won our hearts in 2022.

r.e.m. full night’s sleep undereye balm

While celebrity beauty products are about as abundant as pre-millennium LipSmackers, one pop princess product was worth the hype: Full Night’s Sleep Cooling Blurring Undereye Balm

Ariana Grande’s r.e.m. brand has a spacey vibe with down-to-earth ingredients. That’s what makes the eye balm so impressive. The superhero ingredient in this formula, Ganoderma Lucidum–known as “the mushroom of immortality“– lends a powerful, holistic, and gentle element to this balm.

The best part? The bouncy marshmallow texture of this product promises a gentle encounter with your delicate under eye area. This cooling step just might be the best part of the morning and evening routine.

tree hut shave oil

No more aerosol cans rusting up the corners of our showers. Forget every other shaving product you’ve ever used. The tree hut shave oil is non-greasy, smells great, and protects your skin from nicks, even if you’re using a disposable. It’s a luxurious upgrade on our grooming practice, no matter how often you do it.

Nicole’s scent pick: Moroccan Rose
Tara’s scent pick: Tropic Glow

You really can’t go wrong with whichever scent you start with. Trust… you’ll inevitably pick up another bottle if you want to switch it up.

cocokind ceramide barrier solution

Cocokind’s Daily SPF was my first introduction to this botanical-forward skincare brand. After winning a four-step skincare routine on Instagram in summer 2022, the brand won me over completely.

The prize pack included an SPF, celery-seed moisturizer, oat to milk cleanser, and a ceramide barrier solution. I stashed these products until winter arrived, when our skin works overtime to seal in hydration.

My skin suggested I take a break from moisturizers, and the ceramide barrier solution was the perfect stand-in. The light milky formula helps to seal your routine and get a soft base for your makeup.

Honorable mention to the celery-seed moisturizer, but this ceramide serum is it.

NYX ‘bare with me’ concealer

With proper skincare, makeup doesn’t need to do any heavy lifting. A little goes a long way, especially with this compact little powerhouse.

This incredible $11 formula from NYX is perfect for smoothing out skin tone without taking over your natural glow.

Our shade: beige

urban decay NAKED ‘honey’ eyeshadow palette

NAKED’s beloved palettes got a buzz-worthy makeover with shimmering HONEY edition. This gold-hued palette features a gradient of metallic pressed powders, all in versatile neutral tones.

A swipe of HBIC is just the right touch to any ensemble where you want to feel like the Queen Bee… just like this Queen Bee right here 😉
