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.

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.

flawless

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.

tasteful but hard to see
Purchased

I really love this palette, i think that it has great colors and shades. I also really love the mixture of matte and shimmer, however the sparkles are really hard to see. For someone who purchased this palette for the sparkle shadow - its hard to see and keep on.

half okay
Purchased

the mattes are great and blendable but the shimmers are very difficult to get any pigmentaion whatsoever, even with a primer they dont stick to the lid and you cant really use a brush to get the shadow out of the pan. fingers are the best ive found.

I really liked the colors and they applied very easily. The sample pallet actually lasted me a while using it for day looks
