Give your shadow extra staying power with Smashbox’s Photo Finish Lid Primer.

Smashbox Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

We used to get frustrated that smoky eye tutorials didn’t take the spectrum of eye shapes into account (after all, we’re a diverse bunch). Turns out we weren’t alone. After nine years of research examining thousands of faces, the makeup pros at Smashbox narrowed it down to six common eye shapes found throughout the world: almond, round, upturned, downturned, monolid, and hooded. They applied their findings to this universal neutral palette, filled with all the neutrals you (and you and you) will ever need.

How it Works

No more fretting over your crease or lack thereof. This versatile palette has a guide that helps you identify your eye shape and master three flattering looks for it (day, night, and defined). The top has seven shimmery shades and on the bottom, you’ll find seven matte hues—ranging from nudes to blacks. Oh, and there’s also a double-sided brush, a built-in mirror, and a travel-size Full Exposure Mascara.

How to Use

Follow the step-by-step instructions in the eye shape chart, depending on your preferred eye look, or sweep one of the lighter shades across your lids for a no-fuss finish.

Terrible sample!!
Sampled

I am not sure if my sample was defective or if the cold weather did something.. There was hardly any product on the card so you couldn't build up the color.. a HUGE waste of a sample.. When I opened my box this month I was like.. where the heck is the samples? I mean my box was nearly empty. Very disappointed in Birchbox this month. Just awful. I can't really use anything in my box except one. The rest I will pass one to someone I guess but will throw away this "Palette" Sample Palette??? I wish they would have just send us one color and had a little pot of it so we could try it for real!!

Not good.

I like the product, but I am extremely dissatisfied with the packaging. Very cheap. Shadows on a piece of paper. Not easy to sample... :(

Meh.
Sampled

This was my Beauty Extra and it was...not very extra. I would have preferred a smaller selection of colors to sample, but more product. This card has a nice selection of shadows (matte and shimmer) but not a ton of product. Not very thrilling, and I'm glad this didn't take away from my actual samples.

Smashbox Shadow Pallette

I got this sample and was excited to use it but it was completely ineffective.

The sample powder sizes were too small and I couldn't actually get enough shadow onto my eyes to even really try the sample. It was disappointing.

Full exposure palette

Loved the colors! Did not like the application of the shadows even with primer. Outstanding color selection to include matte shadows.

Bad sample, not great quality

Sampling eye shadow from a card like that, doesn't allow enough product to actually get a good buildup and sample. The like the colors, but they didn't seem pigmented enough for me to want to buy the palette. Seemed like a waste of money, and a wasted sample.

Not my favorite
Purchased

I loved the colors when I received as a sample. However I have not been super impressed using the full size palette. The texture and coverage are nice. I'm not sure if I am not just sold on the colors at least on my skin. Maybe I will enjoy it more in the winter when I have NO tan at all. I wouldn't reccomend purchasing.
