Doing a monthly favorites post is something I usually aspire to do, but most of the time it isn't realistic for me. I try so many products, and while I usually like almost everything, most aren't what I would consider a favorite. The products I have today are items that are more like surprise spring favorites - products I wasn't expecting to like quite as much as I did!
YSL La Laque Couture - 07 Peace Green - Okay, so this first one isn't a surprise favorite. Peace Green is part of the YSL spring collection. I saw this on Instagram and knew I had to stop by the counter to see it in person. It's a light green with a pink duochrome. I've been wearing this color nonstop.
Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder - 01 Stay Buff - I bought this on a whim, but it turns out that I really like this powder! It's nice as a matte setting powder, but I also really like it on its own. Applied with the sponge applicator, it gives pretty good coverage. The sponge washes really well, and it hasn't started to break down at all. I have used this so much that I've already hit pan on it!
Benefit Coralista Blush - Your guess is as good as mine as to why it has taken me this long to try the Benefit boxed blushes, but I'm loving them! This coral shade is right up my alley right now. I like my coral and peachy shades for spring.
Covergirl Ready, Set Gorgeous Foundation - If I could describe what I want out of a foundation in one word it would be easy. I want a foundation that is easy to apply, easy to wear, and has easy to use packaging. This one does the trick for me, and being from Covergirl, it's also easy to find and easy to afford! It's easy to apply with your hands, a brush, or a sponge. The coverage is medium, and it has a natural finish. This is a foundation that you can wear, and it won't wear you. I was not expecting to like this as much as I do.
Tarte LipSurgence Lip Creme - Nurturing - This is a limited edition shade that I got in a set, but it's still available. I never really gave the LipSurgences any thought because I'm not a fan of minty flavored lip products, but this isn't strong at all. Nurturing is described as a nude pink, but it looks more like a peach shade to me. Either way, I like the way it looks and feels on my lips.
