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.

Nice combo

The shadows blend well and are good for day to night transition.

Loved it
Sampled

Awesome product. Loved the quality. Colors were great. I did think the sample was super skimpy. A larger sample size would have been nice

LOVE the brand, sample not great
Sampled

LOVE it but a card with some powder on it is not an effective way to sample a product. I did not even have enough to do a complete look on BOTH eyes. I could only do 1 eye!!

Great brand and product though

Cute but sparing
Sampled

The sample card seems like a great way to provide a maximum number of samples at one time, but honestly I would prefer a fuller sample size and less color options so that I can play with the colors more than once.

nice product
Sampled

It was hard to tell from the size of the sample but it seems to be a nice eye shadow that stayed on well. I liked one or two of the colors but not sure I'd need the whole palate.

Great Pallete
Sampled

I really love the colors in this pallete. Having the matte and shimmer of each shade is genius. The eyeshadows go on smooth and don't smudge at all. I will definitely be purchasing this pallete!

Neutral palette - taupe - okay
Sampled

This neutral palette would be great for people with darker features. For me it was a bit overwhelming. I love the quality of the shadows but the colors just aren't for me.

Nice shadows
Sampled

These shadows are pretty nice quality. I like how they go on, I like the colors. I can't justify another neutral palette for myself though!

Fun to Try, But Won't Buy
Sampled

It may have been the colors I chose to use, but I did not like the way these shades worked with my skin tone. The matte shades barely showed up even after I applied primer, and the shades with more sheen were too sparkly for my liking.
