Smashbox 'Full Exposure' Eyeshadow Palette + Swatches









 Are words necessary for this blogpost? I think the palette speaks for itself really. I saw it a couple of weeks ago and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it ever since! It really is perfection in a palette. The top row as you can see is all shimmer colours, and the bottom row is all mattes, I think they've chosen a really good selection of neutral shades all to compliment each other. I don't know why but I feel like now I have this I don't need any other eyeshadows (but let's be serious, I always need new eyeshadows) I don't think I could say one bad thing out of any of the shades in this palette, and that is a big deal, especially for me, as there always one or two eyeshadows that are duds and you never really use, but I can proudly say that I'd easily use every single one of these.

They are super pigmented and talking of pigments, the shimmery ones are almost pigment-like as they are quite coarse looking but they apply like an absolute dream and don't clump because of the glitter.

This has actually sold out on Boots.com but they still have stock in stores so make sure you run out and grab one before they're all gone! It retails at £36 which is £1 cheaper than the Urban Decay 'Naked' palettes and you get 14 eyeshadows instead of 12, which is amazing! I haven't had it for long but I'm going to say that I actually prefer this to the Naked palette as I think the colour selection is better and I like the fact that they have equal shimmer to matte shades available, however I do think the quality and pigmentation are the same. It also comes with a brush which is double ended for your eye base and crease blending and some packs feature a sample of their Full Exposure Mascara which is also AMAZING! Urban Decay I'd watch your back!
