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.

Never received this in my monthly box, but purchased anyway.

I didn't even know this was offered on Birchbox.com. I bought at the Smashbox counter at Nordstroms. I love everything about this pallete. The colors are amazing for both day and night looks. Love the versatility and range of colors- great brow bone colors as well as crease. I use many of them wet for my lid. Like the mix up of matte vs. shiny. I've been really into mattes lately.

Not the best quality

I expected more. These were okay but they should have been better. Some shades were better than others but not worth a repurchase. I gave it away.

This Full Exposure Palette is such high quality makeup with the capability for so many looks! The shimmer is just right. I am 33 & I don't like tooooo much sparkle.....this is the perfect barely there shimmer. They take the work out of the process by pairing the perfect shades. The palette also co as with a wonderful brush and my new FAVORITE MASCARA! Thanks BB & Smashbox!

So this palette got me into doing the neutral eye. The Browns and nutral colors in the exposure kit are beautiful and well pigmented. Also it comes with a brush; the smash box brushes are pretty good. Especially the liner brush(sold sepretly)

Love this palette

This palette can be used both wet and dry, which gives many options depending on the look you're going for. A great neutral palette with lots of potential.

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.
