lazy sunday: current favorites

I thought it was about time to do a "favorites" post, and what better day to start than Sunday?

First up, a nice big cup of French press coffee with some delicious fresh strawberries. I grew up on the central coast with strawberry stands everywhere, and they are one of my all time favorites. Strawberries are usually sweetest and juiciest when you can get them fresh and local. I was excited to find these in the little green baskets at Whole Foods yesterday.

Current makeup favorites:

This tube of NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard is my second, and it's running low. Already have a third tube waiting from my trip to TMSLA!

My new Maybelline Color Tattoo in Sleek and Spice is quickly becoming a new favorite, it's a great base under everything.

I regret waiting so long to pick up the Sephora Pro Airbrush Concealer brush, this thing is amazing. It just takes a few taps over my NARS concealer for it to disappear along with my spots and redness. I may need to get the foundation version now.

Spring makes me want to wear bright lipstick, an although I have been experimenting with orange recently, I still keep going back to Clinique's bright and easy wearing pink Chubby Stick in Pudgy Peony.

One of my newest favorites was sent to me for review. I've found myself constantly reaching for Lord and Berry's Luxury Eyeliner in "In the Black", forgot how easy pencil liners are! I have trouble with the extra creamy eyeliners like Urban Decay 24/7 because they end up getting in my eyes and sticking to my contact lenses, giving me blurry vision. I haven't had any problems with this one, even on my water line. Full review coming soon...

New purchases:

I finally caved and got a pump for my NARS Sheer Glow foundation. Hoping now I will use it more often. I wish NARS wouldn't make you buy extra things for their products so often.

I was also running low on my current mascara, so I decided with the Sephora sale to splurge and get Guerlain's Maxi Lash. Hopefully it's worth it!

What are your favorite things right now?
