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.

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.

Sample Package doesn't not do this product justice
Sampled

The colors are awesome and I was very excited about receiving this as a sample; however, the packaging wasn't great. The shadows got stuck on the plastic cover and did not easily transfer from sample pack to applicator to eye lid; in face, barely any ended up on my eye lids. Based on the sampling experience I would not spend the money to purchase this product.

Fantastic set of basics
Sampled

This palette is fantastic. I'm in love with the mattes, and the glam of the shimmers. I'm an eyeshadow junkie, so having something that lets me do both subtle and natural looks as well as full-on sexpot styles is the perfect one stop pop for all the traveling I end up doing for work. Possibly the best birchbox surprise yet.

I love eye shadows that are not very bold. i like to wear a more subtle look in terms of makeup and with these shadows they last all day and give me just the shades i'm looking for whether its day or night use

Nice color

The colors in this palette are great, they go on smoothly and the pigmentation is really great. The color range makes it versatile for day-to-night transitions.

Great Palette

This is such a great selection of colors to go from day to night! The day neutrals are great for work - and the night time colors are very sexy. I love it!

I love this color palate. The colors are beautiful and they are easy to apply. The variety from a dramatic to subtle eye is easily achieved with this product.
