This week the Lipstick League wants to know what eyeshadow palettes you find yourself reaching for most these days.
I've been carrying around the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow palette in 238 Tissé Paris ($64 at thebay.com and $61 at nordstrom.com ) -- but I haven't actually used it. *sigh* Two reasons: I'm not doing so well with my resolution to do my makeup at home instead of the back of a car, and I usually skip eyeshadow anyway, for speed reasons, whether in a car or not. Yet I'm as seduced by pretty palettes as the next person -- and this Spring is full of some gorgeous stuff. Sheesh.
What about you? Is eyeshadow a daily must for you? Which palette(s) are you using most often these days? Do you have a go-to that wins every time? Or do you cycle through a few favourites several times a week?

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Beauty Junkies Unite "I love reading The Small Things Blog, Kate's hair tutorials make me feel like I can accomplish (almost) anything with my fine hair. I like this "Lived-in Waves Tutorial", because it helps create a relaxed, yet polished look that stays put all day. And now I really want the curling iron she's using!"
