SMASHBOX: FULL EXPOSURE PALETTE
This is the latest eyeshadow palette by SMASHBOX!
It is AHHH..MAAAA..ZING !!
This palette consists of 14 neutral shades of eyeshadows- with 2 textures.
The top row includes 7 shimmery shadows. The bottom row has 7 matte shades.
The colors are simply beautiful. I absolutely loved it. Hands down, to me- this beats the naked palettes whom everyone is crazy about. The colors are more neutral. It has the equal amount of mattes and shimmers.
I’m in love with the choice of colors- beautiful nudes, browns & grey hues. Great pigmentation. The matte colors are super velvety and not chalky. I think this palette suits majority of skin tones.
The first thing that caught my eye with this palette is how it suits a “Bridal Look” due to the beautiful neutrals.
Keep in mind, the shimmery shades are super glittery- so you’ll notice there will be fallout- make sure the press the color down with a brush on your lids instead of sweeping across. I also suggest wearing a shadow shield underneath your eye area to protect from fallout.
Also, make sure too apply an eye primer underneath the eyeshadow to see more intensity & for it to stay. If you applied the color (especially the shimmery ones) you will not see the richness of the color.
The palette also comes with a double ended brush, full exposure mascara sample & a booklet with how to create day/night looks according to your eyeshape. I think this is really helpful.
The double sided brush has a flat side to it to help in patting the shimmer into place.
