Most-Loved Edit: My 2022 Favorites

I thought it'd be fun as we round out 2022 to gather all of my most-loved pieces and products and create a resource for the best-of. While some of my favorites you'll see in this post are my OG ride-or-dies, I also found a handful of new things this year that I've really loved. I'm breaking down all of my style, beauty, skincare and haircare faves, plus some of yours in a few categories that I polled you on Instagram about.

Without further ado...welcome to the Most-Loved Edit!

Keep reading for your feedback on your favorite recommendations from me in 2022! 

Most Loved 2022

Bra: Spanx Bra-llelujah Lightly Lined Full Coverage Bra

I have a few bras in my rotation but this is the one I always reach for first. I love that it has full support but feels as comfy as a bralette. Runner up is my favorite strapless bra by Soma!

Voted by you: Soma Enbliss Wireless Bra (I love this one too when I don't need as much support!)

Underwear: Skims Fits Everybody Thong

A little on the pricier side but worth every penny and holds up perfectly over time. THE comfiest underwear I've ever owned.

Basic Tee: Everlane Organic Cotton Box Cut Tee

Checks all the boxes of the perfect tee and has a relaxed fit without feeling oversized or frumpy.

Voted by you: Abercrombie Essential Easy Tee (This is my runner up! So soft with a little bit thicker fabric)

Blazer: H&M Gathered Sleeve Jacket

I love how the gathered-sleeve style gives off that rolled-up sleeve look without the bulk. Great price-tag for a classic blazer.

Jeans: AGOLDE 90s Fit in 'Snapshot'

These 90s jeans have been my go-to style for a few years now and this wash is my favorite classic pair and the one I reached for most this past year.

Leggings: Lululemon Align 28"

I'm never not reaching for my Aligns when I'm throwing on leggings to wear out or around the house. This is one that I can definitely say is worth the price tag for me!

Everyday Sneakers: Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Lift

You already know how much I love my Converse and although my number of pairs (somehow) keeps growing, the classic lift style is my ride-or-die.

Boots: Jeffrey Campbell Geist Square Toe Boot

I was really into the square toe style this year and got so much use out of this insanely-comfy pair. I recommend sizing up 1/2 size.

Sunglasses: Sojos Oversized Square Frames

Kind of shocked that this $16 pair is still in perfect condition after how much I wear it!

Everyday Jewelry: Electric Picks

EP has pretty much taken over my entire jewelry collection. With a lifetime guarantee and a price-point that aligns with its quality, you really can't beat it. These were my most-worn earrings & this was my most-worn necklace. Code DANIELLE20 gets you 20% off sitewide, always!

 

Most Loved 2022

Foundation: ItCosmetics CC+ Cream Illumination

I haven't strayed from this foundation for a few years now. It's buildable, dewy, feels lightweight and is packed with SPF50+ (I wear shade Light).

Voted by you: ItCosmetics Original CC+ Cream

Concealer: Tarte Shape Tape Ultra Creamy

This is another OG in my makeup bag that I can't live without. I wear shade 20B. Code DANIELLE gets you 15% off sitewide at Tarte, always!

Brows: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze

I started using styling wax in early 2022 and it's been such a game-changer. I brush my brows with this first, and then fill in with the Brow Wiz pencil.

Bronzer: DIBS Desert Island Duo

This is a hard one because I have 2-3 bronzers I really love but if we're talking most-used, it's definitely the cream bronzer in the DIBS Duo. It applies so smoothly and blends beautifully. I use shade Bronze Voyage. If you're not into creams, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light is my top rec!

Voted by you: Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer (powder) & Rare Beauty Warm Wishes Effortless Bronzer (cream)

Blush: Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Highlighter Wand in Pinkgasm

This blush went viral on TikTok in 2020 and was sold out for almost a full year! I love that it's a blush/highlighter hybrid; it gives off the prettiest rosy glow.

Lipstick: BareMinerals Hydra Smoothing Lipstick & Charlotte Tilbury Superstar Lips

I couldn't narrow lipsticks down to just one! I used the BareMinerals in shade Grace all throughout Spring & Summer and the Charlotte Tilbury in Pillow Talk most in Fall & Winter. Also - technically not a lipstick, but I couldn't go without mentioning Tarte's Maracuja Juicy Lip (shade Peachy Beige) which I can't live without.

Lip Liner: Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Liner in Iconic Nude

A true nude that goes with any range of lip colors.

Setting spray: Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish

This is another viral TikTok find that I've been using since 2020. Your makeup won't budge!

 

Most Loved 2022

AM Moisturizer: Summer Fridays Dream Oasis Deep Hydration Serum

I started using this one later in the year (around end of Summer) but I love it so much that I've already gone through a few bottles.

Voted by you: CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

PM Moisturizer: Colleen Rothschild Extreme Recovery Cream

My skin is always on the drier side so I like the heavy hydration hitters at night. This one is a ride-or-die for me! Code DG20 gets you 20% off any full-priced items sitewide.

Serum: Sunday Riley Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment & Colleen Rothschild Age Renewal Serum

Hard to pick just one in this category because I switch up my serums pretty often based on different skin concerns! These two were my most-used for skin resurfacing and anti-aging.

Sunscreen: EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46

This top-rated sunscreen is so worth the hype for me. It's weightless under makeup and fragrance free - you seriously don't even know it's on!

Cleanser: Tula Purifying Face Cleanser

I'm probably coming up on 5 years now that I've been using this cleanser...one of those products that I keep restocking. Code DANIELLEGERVINO gets you 15% off sitewide at Tula, always.

Voted by you: Tula cleanser was also your most-loved!

Lip treatment: Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm

I keep this by my bed and use it nightly. Super hydrating and smells so good!

Self Tanner: Get Tan Again Bronzed Ultra Dark

This self tanner checks every single box: smells great (a gem in itself for that), applies easily, fades evenly, and lasts me just under a week. Code DANIELLE gets you 15% off. If you're looking for a facial tanner, +Lux Unfiltered N°12 Bronzing Face Drops are the way to go!

 

Most Loved 2022

Shampoo: Ouai Detox Shampoo

I like to use this clarifying shampoo about 1x a week to remove product build up from hair treatments, dry shampoo, etc. My hair always feels so clean after using.

Hair Treatment: Kérastase Blonde Absolu Heat Protecting Serum

I use this on towel-dried hair before blow drying. Also doubles as a heat protectant up to 450°

Dry Shampoo: Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder Tres Invisible Dry Shampoo

I've been using this dry shampoo for a few years now; gets the job done and no residue!

Voted by you: Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo (This is a great pick that works but I personally think the smell is too strong!)

Finishing Spray: Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity Hair Spray

I'm not a hair spray girl at all, so don't be swayed by the name of this. I love this finishing spray for taming frizz, especially in the Summer. Smells amazing and keeps fly-aways at bay with an invisible-feeling hold.

Hot Tools: T3 Micro Curl ID

T3 tools have been a staple in my haircare routine since college and I still stand by them being the best of the best. I love that you can customize this tool to your exact hair type, eliminate the guesswork surrounding heat settings and minimize damage all in one.

*Although I have a few personal discount codes for some of the brands on my list, don't let that sway you in any way! These are all brands I use and love regularly, so much so that we're able to get a code from time to time since I'm sharing them so often organically.
