The Lipstick League Question of the Week
Which eyeshadow palettes have you been reaching for the most lately?
G's answer: Honestly, I try to change it up every week so that all of my palettes get some serious use, rather than me just lovingly opening the cases and staring at them before I put them back in my palette bin. It's a hard task though, trying to rotate palettes every week, but I'm all about trying to really use the things I own before I'm off to buy more (yeah, keep dreaming, right? Well at least I try!). So this past week, I was all about my Maybelline The Nudes palette, my Ulta Rose Gold palette and an oldie but goody, my Urban Decay Naked 1 palette. Next week I've got my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette, IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Matte palette and theBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude palette on tap. Mr. G bought me the Meet Matt(e) Nude and Balm Voyage palettes for Christmas after he saw my blog post about them being on sale with free shipping last December. What a guy, right?
