Review: Smashbox Full Exposure Palette

smashbox-friends-family-2014Press SampleSmashbox recently announced that their Full Exposure Palette has become the biggest launch in Smashbox history!  It’s no wonder, as this palette of 14 shadows is perfectly balanced with both modern matte and gleaming pearl finishes to create the neutral eye of your dreams.

These shadows deliver intense, smooth color.  They are way too amazing to feature on only one day, so today is the start of a three-day series featuring this palette!

Click through and scroll for MANY product photos.  I really couldn’t stop photographing this palette.  It’s just too gorgeous!   Keep in mind that the Smashbox Friends and Family Sale is running from now until 6/14/14 so you can also grab the products in this review at a discount!  Tomorrow I’ll be reviewing the perfect partner in crime for this palette, the Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer!
