Smashbox Full Exposure Palette

Last week I told you about the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara that came with this palette and now I am giving you a closer look at the palette itself. So many bloggers have been singing the praises of this palette that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one. It is a limited edition so you would need to act fast if you want to get your hands on one. My brother sent this to me as a belated birthday pressie from the U.S.

Along with the trial size mascara the palette also comes with a large mirror and a double ended full size brush which is actually pretty good. This palette has 14 neutral toned eye shadows, which graduate from light to dark. There are 7 shimmers and 7 mattes so everything you need to create a whole range of looks. There is also good mix of warm and cool tones so it is very versatile. The shimmers are not disco ball glitter but more a subtle satin shimmer. The mattes are not chalky so they are beautifully buttery. All the shades are soft, creamy and easy to blend. I had no issue with fall out with any of the shadows.

The only problem I have is that the shadows are difficult to photograph with a normal camera, unless I heavily pack on the shadow. I don’t have a DSLR but I usually get by with the macro setting on my camera or phone. The shimmer isn’t apparent in a photo without a flash but a flash cuts right through the colour in the same way it would with bronzer.
Below is a soft bronze smoky eye that would work for day or night. Here is how I used the colours:

2. Inner corner highlight
3. Crease and liner
4. Outer corner
5. To blend from crease to brow to remove any harsh lines
6. Highlight under outer brow
