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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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°
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.
