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.

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.

Perfect colors, and the brush is incredible. I love this palette almost more than the Naked palette I own! They have perfect colors for day and night and the looks are totally different.

LOVE IT

This pallet is amaze-balls. Smashbox you killed it again!! The colors are all perfect and totally wearable no matter what your personal style is, I'm not a big daily makeup wearer..I usually just stick with mascara and maybe a bit of cheek stain, concealer if I need it..but I love these eyeshadow colors so so much I can't stop playing with it :)

Overall nice

I use this palette all the time. The colors are great. It blends very well. I typically use the matte shades more due to the fact that the glitter seems to go everywhere. Once I ran out of bronzer and used the three shades to the left of the palette (matte of course) and it worked great in a pinch. Overall a nice palette. Not my absolute favorite, though.

My first palatte
Purchased

I am so pleased with these colors. I have been trying to use more brown with my blue eyes to make the pop and this palatte has so many options and ways I can play around with the colors. I love the option of going matte or shimmer. I'm so glad I purchased this, I will get a ton of use at all the Christmas parties coming up.

Disappointing

Not as pigmented as I had hoped for it to be. Should have spent my money on another palette.

Eh

Was disappointed. One color shattered right when i got it. Color payoff isn't great and I found I don't use them that often as they are very bland. Not the worst palette just not amazing.

I ordered this last Christmas, but never really used it -- I found the eye shadows to be powdery, did not last/stay, and did not blend well at all. Unfortunate, because I really liked the color palette and really shopped around before settling on this.
