Smashbox Cosmetics Full Exposure Palette

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.

I found that this had quite a lot of fallout, even when patted with a flat eyeshadow brush. Great pigmentation though.

Colors all wrong for my skin tone
Purchased

I was very excited about this product and love the packaging, the brush, the variety of colors and the little instruction booklet that gives you ideas for day and night. They also apply well and stay on and the mascara was OK too. My problem, however, is that most of the shadows have a yellow undertone. Apparently this works for most people because I don't see any reviews that express a problem with it, but if you have red undertones to your skin like I do these colors look horrendous and will make you look jaundice! I love Birchbox and took a chance on this expensive product, now I am just hoping my experience with their return policy is a good one...

Not the best quality
SampledPurchased

I expected more. These were okay but they should have been better. Some shades were better than others but not worth a repurchase. I gave it away.

Colored paper
Sampled

This sample was not big enough to test nor could I actually pull the sample off the paper. Sad, this could have been a nice sample with the mascara provided.

Not a good way to sample

I could not properly use the samples from the card. Shadows may be ok but i couldn't use them without getting frustrated.

sizing

The product itself was okay but there was not nearly enough product to test it. I could use this paper card once before I would toss it.

Poor quality glitters

I'm not sure if the glitter/shimmer portion is meant to be so light that you'd have to reapply 5 times or not, but I was sorely disappointed . I wanted to like this because the colors are lovely , but the glitter shades are worthless. The matte shades are great however. Waste of money, I'd wish I'd gotten the Lorac Pro palette instead

Poor Sample Size

Very small of the eyeshadow on the paper. Definitely not not worth it to be an item as part of the box.

Sample was awful

I was very excited to have opened my Birchbox to a sample shadow pallet. I ended being very disappointed. There was not much shadow to build up color. You could barely even notice that I was wearing any eye shadow even after using up the entirety of the sample.
