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, filled with all the neutrals you (and you and you) will ever need.

Finally one compact to manage multiple looks. High quality brush to facilitate shadowing and contouring. Wide range of mate and shimmer. Usually there are some you will never use but each palette is worthy of many looks. Great travel compact.

Too small of a sample
Sampled

I really like Smashbox in general, and I think overall there are really nice colors that go with anything. However, this sample was, in my opinion, a joke because of its size. I barely got anything out of it, but the little bit of color I got was definitely nice. Not sure if I would actually buy the product, since I didn't get enough out of the sample.

Long Lasting, Natural Color
Sampled

Absolutely purchasing this palette. Loved all of the colors, which is rare for me in such a large collection. The shadows work great as liner, are long lasting, and don't smudge or crease. Also, the mascara is a great natural-looking day look.

Love this kit
Purchased

The colors in this palette are subtle but very nice. I was worried that the sparkly ones would be too much, but they are actually subtle when applied and look great day or night. I would buy this product again. ALL of the colors actually work with my pale skin :)

Perfect Palette!
Purchased

Perfect neutral palette for any occasion. Good pigmentation and smooth texture with the terrific quality I expect from Smashbox. The included dual-ended brush is top notch and makes application a breeze. The bonus mascara sample is a great little travel companion. Very pleased with this purchase!

Lovely eye colors

I love these eyeshadows. The shades are all neutral, with a little umph. Great for work or going out. The sample was nice and easy to carry in my purse for any of those times you need a quick look change.

Dissapointing

I received the 10 sample card and wow...not what I was expecting. The "shimmers" were pure glitter and I experienced fallout, even with a primer. The only shimmer that worked for me was S4 and it was more of a true shimmer consistency. The mattes were okay. I liked that they were velvety and smooth, but there was not much color with some of the lighter shades and a primer should be used for those. The mascara sample is wonderful, and is easily one of my top favorite high-end mascaras. All in all, I would not recommend this palette to anyone unless if Smashbox reformulates the shimmers to match the consistency of S4 and makes the mattes more pigmented. Hope this helps!

Loved this palette of amazing colors
Purchased

This is one palette that the girl on the go cannot do without! I travel a fair bit and it is the one thing I make sure is in my makeup bag. Also like the eye shape information that comes with the set.

Great colors!

Our favorite part was that the colors weren't too dark or dramatic because we always end up with too much. If you wanted a little more drama then you could just apply more for the desired look. The colors prove to be quite resilient because it lasted for 8hrs without creasing.

Great shades
Sampled

There's nothing I love more than a great neutral eyeshadow so an introduction to an entire palette of neutrals was fantastic. Will definitely consider purchasing this when I need more eye shadow.
