With the new year upon us, we’ve been on the lookout for the best picks to renew our makeup routines. Something to make 2022 fresh, bright, and full of effortless glam.
Our editors have spent 2021 obsessing over the new makeup must-have, Thrive Causemetics, and their TikTok viral Liquid Lash Extensions™ Mascara. The cruelty-free, vegan brand has been topping our list all year, and for good reason: their products work and they give back on top of that!
One of our favorite initiatives is their $5 million commitment to their Bigger Than Beauty™ Giving Partners who work to combat root causes of systemic racism. 100% of profits from Thrive's Moisture-Enriched Hand Sanitizer were donated to Black Women's Health Imperative. We love this brand for taking beauty a step further and have fallen head over heels for their line.
Get in on these life-changing beauty products now and head into 2022 with your best face forward. We've narrowed down our top 3 new years’ must-haves from Thrive Causemetics:
What It Is: A waterproof cream-to-powder highlighter for the eyes. Made with macadamia, meadowfoam, sunflower, jojoba, and mango seed oil – plus, vitamin E.
What It Does: Makes your eyes pop with instant brightening, while also hydrating and smoothing the look of fine lines around your eyes. Gives tired skin the look of an eye-lift withs its Ring Light Technology™ providing a soft, diffused glow.
Our Thoughts: This is what we call a life-saver. While we still may feel tired in those AM meetings, we no longer look it thanks to Thrive Causemetics. It's super easy to apply and glides smoothly across our lids, in our waterline, below our brow bone, and of course, on those inner and outer corners. And it's true – this formula lasts all day with no creasing.
This brightener comes in 13 colors that can be used with many different skin tones. We've loved using it to simply highlight our corners or taking it to the next level as an eyeshadow. And again, we are obsessed with the good this makeup does to our skin.
The ingredients here help smooth texture and fine lines through the benefits of antioxidants and hydration – not only do we see it but we feel it too. You can’t start 2022 without this brightener in your makeup routine.
2. Triple Threat Color Stick™
What It Is: A cream color stick with a built-in brush. Formulated with evening primrose oil, sunflower seed oil, and Vitamin E.
What It Does: Designed to give you a natural flush of color with application to the face, lips, and body. Using Semi-Permanent Micropigment Technology™, it delivers smudge-proof and waterproof color that’s easy to apply on the go.
Our Thoughts: The Triple Threat Color Stick™ has to be in your bag at all times. We swear by this color stick in the new year, and its versatility is well worth the investment. The seven shades available, from Mieko (Soft Pink Shimmer) to Tessa (Berry Matte), are flattering on a range of skin tones.
We found the three best spots to hit with this color stick are the hollows of the cheeks for a subtle flush, the lips for a fuller pout, and the apples of the cheeks for a natural blush. You can’t go wrong no matter how you decide to use your Triple Threat Color Stick™. The creamy texture is heavenly, and the built-in brush makes diffusing easy for a soft, glowy look. Be your own MUA in 2022 with this game-changer.
What It Is: A color-correcting cream that works as a foundation, moisturizer, and sunscreen. Made with broad-spectrum SPF 35, flaxseed extract, and Vitamin C.
What It Does: It blurs the look of skin imperfections, fine lines, and pores to give you a photo-filter finish. The lightweight cream brightens complexions and conceals redness, discoloration, dark spots, and sunspots.
Our Thoughts: We have never come across a CC cream this effective that also comes in a shade-inclusive range. Thrive Causemetics helps you find your shade match with four quick questions narrowing their 18 options from fair to deep.
The Buildable Blur™ CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35 will streamline your makeup in 2022 - for real. No more caking on layers of foundation and color-correcting creams. No more stressing over how dried out your skin is after you're done applying. Now you just need one tube of Thrive Causemetics to cover all your bases, and you’ll have the perfect, dewy, fresh look for the year.
Start off the new year right with skin that looks and feels good. And with SPF 35, your skin will be thanking you for years to come :)
These products give you amazing quality at an even better price. The new year is the best time to refresh your makeup routine with effective essentials.
Thrive Causemetics is worth it. We've never used a brand that benefits a good cause, delivers on their products, and completely surprises with the versatility of each one.
Trust us, you can't go wrong with Thrive Causemetics in 2022. New year, better makeup.
