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.

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.

So versatile!
Purchased

I love this eyeshadow palatte! It is so much fun! There are gorgeous matte colors, for day or night, plus super fun sparkly ones too! I love doing matte during the day, and the sparkly ones when I go out. I also like to mix and match. This is very versatile, and you can get many neutral-colored looks, from natural to dramatic. Plus the mascara sample is awesome! I love that mascara, and now want to purchase a full sized one!

Great variety!
Purchased

This palette has a large variety of colors to choose from, and they are all great (no useless colors) but it is rather large and the sparkly colors are very sparkly. I love having all these on one palette. Easy to store!

Just alright
Purchased

This was my first Smashbox purchase, and so far I haven't been overly impressed. I bought this palette a few months ago, and I feel as though it isn't great for all-day wear. It creases after only a few hours, and the shimmery shades do not have much color to them; I rarely use them. However, I do like the matte colors. Before this I used one of the Naked palette from Urban Decay, and think I'll go back to that, or purchase a different brand.

Not a Naked Palette!
SampledPurchased

This is the only palette I will ever own that's not a Naked palette. I bought after getting a sample in my box, and bought the next day! So nice because it makes the smokey eye so easy with matching matte and shimmer/sparkle. Stays on so well, will absolutely buy again.

Love it!
Purchased

I love this pallette, I had the travel size, and after I tried it, I had to have the full size. The colors look so good with my eye color and complextion. This is my go to eye shadow pallette from now on. It is so worth the $, and it don't take much at all to get the shade you want. So recomended !

Beautiful colors!!
Purchased

This is my first pallet and i obsoletely love it! The colors are so beautiful! I would recommend using a eye primer, shade stick or a paint pot underneath if you want a darker look.

Some colors didnt even show
Sampled

First of all, this sample felt like it was a inlet that's usually found in magazines & slightly insulting since other companies send maybe 2-4 little plastic palettes for you to try. This was a sheet. Ok fine whatever, moving on to the colors and quality of the shades themselves. I think the black, brown and the shimmery gold showed up and the rest well, i rubbed it until the paper showed through and ended up with no eyeshadow to be seen on my lids. Not impressed at all. Smashbox disappoints again! Still not as bad as that full exposure mascara, jeez im better off getting cheap drugstore mascara that'll work and not break off my eyelashes.

these are my favorite. so pigmented and works so well with their primers. I love spicing my regular nude matte shadows with their fun sparkles.
