Smashbox Full Exposure Palette



As soon as a neutral palette comes out, I'm all over it (bar the Naked 3 Palette - I don't do pinks) but generally if an eyeshadow palette has some bronzy goodness in it, I snap it up straight away and the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette was no exception. This is my first Smashbox purchase and my first item from the brand. Smashbox is a counter I always seem to bypass in Boots mainly for the reason that I've not really heard much about them and not really come across any reviews but after seeing the swatches online and all the positive reviews out there, I just couldn't resist buying it. The palette contains two types of eyeshadows, the top row featuring shimmer eyeshadows and the bottom row offering more matte shades, I'm personally a shimmer girl through and through but I'm gonna give the matte shadows a good run and see how they work teamed with the shimmers. The gold shimmer has 'Beth' written all over it and reminds me of Half Baked from the trusty original Naked palette which is my most worn eyeshadow from that palette. I'm yet to give this palette a proper outing but tomorrow I'm going out for a meal so there may be a Face of the Day photo in the pipeline - I know right, shock horror. I also received two mascara samples with this purchase which I'm obsessed with already, who knows - maybe this palette will start a new love affair with Smashbox.

  5. Half Baked is my favourite Urban Decay eyeshadow too and you can tell I use it the most as it's the only one in the palette where I have hit the bottom. This palette looks fab and the shimmer shades are gorgeous :) Definitely adding it to my wish list! x

  6. I wasn't bothered about getting the Naked three either, I don't get the hype at all ;) I really like the sound of this palette the shades look really wearable, half baked is my fave shade as well so I may have to treat myself to this x

    1. The naked 3 has far too much pink in it for me and pink doesn't suit me anyway. I love this and I'm glad I got this palette instead xx

  12. This palette looks lovely! I don't think I need it though with my silly amount of UD shadows. I've used a mascara from Smashbox before and I really enjoyed using it. Really want to try a blusher from them
