Smashbox Cosmetics Full Exposure Palette + Mascara

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, which comes complete with a guide to help 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.

Amazing palette!
Purchased

I love this palette! It has so many neutral shades and shades to make the perfect smokey eye! I'm obsessed with palettes and this has definitely become one of my go-to favorites! I also really love the eye shadow brush that comes with it! Great value and wonderful shadows!

Love this palette!
Purchased

I own one other Smashbox eyeshadow palette, so I knew I would love this one just as much! And I do! This is a great palette to use for daytime eyes and also for transitioning into the night. Makes a beautiful smokey eye! This is a great palette to travel with, since it has all the colors you need in one. It does has some fallout, but since the colors are darker, that is to be expected. I'm not fond of Smashbox mascara, but that does not deter me from using the palette. I highly recommend this product! Thank you, Birchbox!

Nothing Special
Sampled

There are a lot of neutral palettes out there, and this is also one. The sample wasn't really sufficient to try it out, but from what I was able to swatch it was not very pigmented and not unique among neutral palettes. It may be better for other skin tones, but I have fair, pink-toned skin and there was nothing in this palette that was really ideal for me.

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.

If you lover matte and shimmer
Purchased

I was a little disappointed by this palette. I was expecting a little more oomph. There are basically neutral shimmers and there matte counterparts. I found the shimmers too shimmery and I wish there was more blending ability with these. Regardless it's still a pallet that I can use everyday

From everyday to glam m'am - I love this idiot-proof palette
Purchased

Great colors for my pale complexion that I can mix and match with confidence. Could never figure out palettes with lots of disparate colors, I'm nooooo make up artist. Before this I literally just thought eyeshadow wasn't meant for me. Thanks Smashbox! I use their eyeshadow primer and it really goes on even, bright and stays.

Mascara is okay. Actually really like the formula but the wand is too dang chunky to apply strategically.

best palette i own
Purchased

the colors are so pigmented, absolutely beautiful. I really love the exact split of shimmer and matte and array of neutrals. although, an eye shadow primer is definitely needed. haven't tried the mascara that comes with it yet but will do and probably review separately. the size of the palette is perfect, fits in my makeup case, love the packaging and the brush included is awesome quality. I've been waiting to get this palette for a long time and glad I finally did. Can be used for work, day and night looks, its so versatile - if you mainly go for neutral looks this is the palette for you. Great range from black/gray to brown/taupe.
