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.

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.

Easy to Use

I love that this product comes with an eye shape guide and different eye makeup looks. The looks were easy to create using the step by step guide. The palette comes with an excellent range of black and brown neutrals.

great for a day and night look- the front of the palette got pretty scratched without some sort of case on it. Love the shadows decent staying power.

Disappointed

I'm Smashbox obsessed! I love their products and I was so excited to be receiving the Full Exposure Palette. Unfortunately, it's not worth the money. I've found way better quality in drug store eye shadows than this product. The colors aren't as pigmented as they seem and they are very flaky. Definitely not a product I'd recommend.
