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.

I absolutely love this eyeshadow. Its expensive for me but great quality. It is so thick and goes on exactly how it looks in the palate. I got a sample size and it lasted me for a while.

Not convinced....
SampledPurchased

The eyeshadows were not as pigmented as I would have wished. Maybe if used wet but I wasn't impressed at all. Sort of disappointed with the non-ease of use. I returned mine.

good product but...
Purchased

So I got this cuz I needed a change and liked the fact that it came with tutorials and eye shapes which is what i needed. so for that use this product is perfect for that. BUT now I find that I use just 2-3 shades on a daily basis. It's quite big so hard to travel with (slightly smaller than a remote control)

So to summarize--It's perfect if you want to try different techniques and play around. But for the price you might be better off buying a couple Smashbox shades and watching the Smashbox tutorial on the Birchbox site.

p.s. LOVE the mascara, def gonna buy the full size when it's gone.

Perfect for all occasions
Purchased

I choose this product because I was going to a wedding and was not sure what the bride wanted. This set was great for all the events for the wedding including the bachelorette party, wedding reception, and day look. The matte and shimmer colors work well together. I also really live the brush that comes with this product.

Lots of Fall Out in the Shimmery Shadows
Purchased

I like the matte colors in this palette, they are creamy and apply nicely. However, the "shimmery" shades are more glitter than shimmer. By that I mean they apply like loose glitter and have terrible fall out will very little color delivery - very disappointed. Love the mascara though - it creates great definition with no clumps in sight!

Beautiful Colors
SampledPurchased

Several reviewers have complained about the pigmentation of this palette. But, I really love this palette. I think that the shadows provide great pigmentation when used with a primer and when using the included brush. This palette provides a lot of beautiful neutral options. The palette is very versatile and I think can work for many people. The glittery shadows do have some fallout, but if you apply carefully, I don't think it's a problem. I'm really enjoying it and glad that I purchased it.
