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.

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma.
