My Top 5 Makeup Favorites of 2022

I tried a lot of makeup products last year and it was pretty hard to narrow down this list to my top 5. So, I asked myself which of these makeup products do I reach for the most? And, which of these will I choose if I can only keep 5 products in my makeup bag?

After looking at every makeup product I own, I finally came up with this list. Sharing with you My Top 5 Makeup Favorites of 2022.

1. Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion EX SPF 50+/PA+++

First of all, what is a cushion foundation?

A cushion foundation is a liquid formula housed in a portable compact case. I’ve heard good things about cushion foundations, so I bought one from Sulwhasoo during an airport layover in South Korea.

I got shade No. 23 (Natural Beige) and the color blended seamlessly with my skin tone. Its lightweight and hydrating formula melt onto the skin, providing an even medium to full coverage. The nice semi-matte finish gives my skin that natural looking, lit-from-within glow.

2. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Mini

This is my ultimate favorite one-and-done mini palette. The curated quad comes with 4 gorgeous shades that blend well together. It’s a versatile face palette with a finishing powder, bronzer, blush, and highlighter. To create an effortless monochromatic look, I also use the same shades for my eye makeup.

3. Benefit 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel

A classic favorite that beats any eyebrow gel I’ve tried. I love the dual-sided applicator that easily coats and shapes my brows into place. The gel also lasts all day without any flaky buildup. This is a holy grail product that I’ll keep buying over and over again.

4. Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

I have so many mascara favorites, but the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ranks high on my list. This mascara truly does it all. It thickens, lengthens, and curls like no other mascara I’ve tried. I love how it defines and keeps my lashes lifted for hours without smudging.

5. Hourglass Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss

My lips can get really dry, so I prefer nourishing and hydrating lip products. The Hourglass Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss is formulated with shea butter and avocado oil to keep my lips soft and supple. I got the color Canvas which is a beautiful rosy pink shade. It is higly pigmented and looks great worn alone or layered over another lip color.

What are some of your favorite makeup products? Have you tried any items from my list? Please share in the comments below. I’d love to hear from you.

Thank you so much for reading and have a lovely day ahead!

    • I love a good hydrating product esp. during this winter season. The cold weather can really strip the skin of moisture. And, it’s hard to deal with dry, cracked, and sore lips.


    • Can’t live without this brow gel. I’m using it everyday too. The hourglass mini palette is so gorgeous. It’s been out of stock for a while, but do get one as soon as it becomes available.

  1. OOO I always love shopping for new makeup, and trying a new look. I’m always scared that it won’t be a good product, so this post really helped lead me to some great products. Thanks for sharing!

    • I know, makeup can be expensive and I don’t want to spend my money on something that’s not worth it. I love to check the reviews first before buying anything. Glad you found this post helpful. Thanks for reading 🙂


    • Thanks Simona. I compared it with my other mascaras, and Too Faced was the clear winner. It won Best in Curl, even my hubby agrees. LOL! By the way, I love the brow tint too.


  2. I remembered when Sulwhasoo was still in just skincare exclusively. It is great that they expanded to makeup! The Hourglass highlighter looks nice!!! Love your look!! Still stayed on the natural side – LOVE IT!
