I am in love with the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette. The super-blendable shades and the organization of the shades, shimmer in the top row and mattes on the bottom, from warm to cool, makes it super easy to create your own look combinations.
I was excited to check this out as I have been a huge fan of Smashbox for… well, ever.
This palette also includes how-to’s in the insert to make use of all the shades, so none of the shadows will go to waste. It also explains the importance of knowing your eye shape. The 6 main eye shapes to choose from are: almond, round, upturned, downturned, monolid, hooded.
This insert teaches you tricks and secrets straight from the sets of Smashbox Studios to help you enhance and maximize your shape (for example, elongating width to maximize round eyes or enhancing outer corners to accentuate downturned eyes)—there is a way to accentuate every eye shape, and this insert and palette show you how.
Did you know your eye shape should determine how you apply shadow? A look that’s amazing on your friend might not be great for you. Just like you dress to flatter your body shape, makeup should be applied based on your eye shape to get your most gorgeous, enhanced eyes. Not sure what your eye shape is?

I took the Eye-Q test, watched this video and figured out my eye shape… I have:
The Full Exposure Palette takes your eye shape into consideration.
Another thing we love about this palette is that the shadows are the best formulas out there—long-wearing shimmers and velvety-smooth mattes and they feel great when applying and look great (super pigmented, beautiful color payoff) on your eyes.
The palette also includes a specially designed brush to work specifically with the shadows in the palette—a double-ended brush with a fluffy side for blending mattes and a flat-side for laying down shimmers without sparkle overload. Full Exposure features 14 must-have neutral shades—from nudes to blacks—in the most advanced, super-blendable formula that are totally crease-resistant, long-wearing shimmers work perfectly with velvety-smooth mattes. It’s easy to perfect any look from minimally pretty to smoky sexy.
Smashbox lives for lipstick. Gets excited about primers. (No, seriously, they do.) But most of all, they love sharing their makeup secrets with you. That’s why they’ve created the Full Exposure Palette—a set of universally awesome neutrals that’s essential, effortless and enhanced for your eye shape! This palette was developed because their pros needed it on set at Smashbox Studios in L.A. Just like you dress for your body shape, it’s important to apply makeup based on your eye shape—so Smashbox artists are exposing all of their secrets to get the most out of your shape with this palette. It’s all about being your most kickass beautiful self at Smashbox.
