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.

Amazing!
Purchased

Before purchasing I read a lot of reviews on this product. A lot of girls had claimed that the pallete wasnt good at all, the brush was too rough, and the shimmer was much more like glitter. I disagree. The colors are beautiful. The application even with the brush it comes with, went on remarkably well. The shimmer eye shadows are amazing. The first time rocking this out in public I received three compliments in an hour! Not too bad for a palatte that many have called the worst! My only complaint is that the eye shadow shimmer fallout while applying even with eye primer, is a bit annoying. Instead of my usual routine of foundation first then eye shadow, now its eyeshadow first then Foundation. The plus is that there is No eye shadow shimmer fallout as youre wearing it throughout the day.

LOVED!

I've never owned Smashbox products. I absolutely loved this set of eyeshadow. I like the earthy natural colors. It also seemed to have lasting power too. I haven't tried the sample mascara that came with it yet tho. That was a bonus. I will definitely buy more Smashbox products in the future.

I have been wanting to try this set for a long time. I finally broke down and got it. I'm glad I did. The palette is very big and there is a lot of shadows. This one is really nice because I loved every color and know I will use them all.

This is a good product but does not stand out among the top lines of eye shadow. I would have liked more of a variety of colors. These were mostly neutral.

Love it

I absolutely love the smash box palette. I've watched some good tutorials on YouTube on how to blend etc. And that has made me love it even more. I feel it's better than the naked palates personally. Happy with my purchase.

Love the colors

I love the variety of colors that come in this set. They look great mixing them together or using them with some of my other eye shadows. It also stays on great.

Top notch

I am a huge fan of smashbox, infact most of the products I use on a daily basis are from them. These shadows are long lasting, and super pigmented. It also features a very nice range of colors for day to day makeup.

I really like this palette, having a mixture of matte shadows and shimmer/sparkly shadows gives you a lot of variety, this is definitely worth the money. It's been my go to palette for months.

Perfect for any occasion. One palette for a bunch of different looks. The shades are great. I love that they include and brush and a small mascara too. My only complaint would be that to many shimmery shades. But none the less, love it.
