Smashbox Full Exposure Palette Review

Smashbox Full Exposure Palette review

I’m not one for large palettes, I find that they usually get buried in a drawer until my other eye shadows and eyeliners and lash curlers and mascara. Even if I love the colours, I always seem to forget about it after a few months. Smashbox has introduced their new Full Exposure Palette and it is staying on the top of my makeup drawer.

Smashbox’s palette is a great option for any girl who wears makeup from the pro to the amateur. This big palette includes seven matte eye shadows and seven shimmery eye shadows in complimentary neutral shades. I love it that all of the hues are neutral enough that I can imagine myself wearing them. It’s not like some palettes where you have a few nice shadows, and then one neon blue that just sits there starting at you daring you to try to wear it. Smashbox has given me a whole set of colours that everyone can master, including the shimmer shadows. There is something for every occasion, even for a day in the office.

The Smashbox palette comes with a few fun bonuses too. First there is an eye shape chart to show you how to apply the eye shadow properly on your face. This makes this palette much less intimidating for more inexperienced makeup wearers.

The final bonus just is mini mascara! I mean does it get any better than getting bonus mascara with your palette?

There might be more buzz for some other makeup palettes, but this is my spring must have.

The Santigolden Age collection will include an eye shadow collage, Be Legendary lipgloss, Double Ended Limitless Eye Liner, nail polish art strips and for the first time a Be Legendary lipstick ring, which I personally can’t wait to check out. The collection will be available April 1, 2014.
