Smashbox Full Exposure Palette

This is the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette. The are colors are beautiful neutrals.

The top row is shimmer. The bottom row is matte.

The colors on the top and bottom coordinate with each other.
This palette remains one of my favorites year after year because I find the colors work well on many people.  I hope they never discontinue it! I am particularly fond of the black, the two taupey shades next to the black and the rich warm brown. The black is a soft black.  It is wonderful for using as eye liner!

Most of the shimmers are very sheer. Six of them are quite glittery. Most of them give very little color when applied. Just glitter. The one in the middle is frosted. I prefer very pigmented shadows so I like to use the shimmers over the matte shades to give them depth.

The 7 matte shades go on velvety smooth and opaque. They are creamy looking not dry and dull looking like some matte shadows can be. The mattes wear well. I do always apply them over my favorite Urban Decay Shadow Primer.

There was a handy guide to identify your eye shape and how to apply eye shadow to flatter your eye shape in the box along with a small Full Exposure Mascara. The mascara was good but it didn't wow me. I find sometimes a regular full sized mascara is better than a mini one. I'll have to give it another try to give it a fair review.

I see that there is a Smashbox Mini Matte Eyes Palette

It has six lovely matte colors that can be used as shadow, liner or for brows. I must have it!
