            I was so excited for this palette as the colors are so pretty but it was a big disappointment. There is not much pigmentation to the ones with shimmer nor the lighter colors. I'll stick to Urban Decay for my palettes.

            I Love This Little Palette

            By Desert Girl

            from Scottsdale AZ

            Comments about Smashbox Mini Full Exposure Palette:

            This palette has everything you need and it fits in the palm of your hand. Highlighter, crease, brow, corner... check, check, and check. It does a complete day look, smoky look, nude look, you name it. I reach for it as much as my "Z" full of MUG pans. Now I wish every line made their palettes this size.

            The darker 3 shimmery colors are VERY glittery. The lightest one was shimmer. The lighter 2 matte colors do not really show up well on my skin tone. The matte dark ashy brown shade is pigmented and my favorite color in the pallette. The dark brown matte shade is also pigmented. I do not like the darker shimmery colors, way too glittery and I dont have a use for the,. These shadows do not last without a primer. With a primer though, they last longer, but still not all day. I use the ELF eyelid primer. Overall,this pallette is not the greatest. All the colors are smooth though.

            Comments about Smashbox Mini Full Exposure Palette:

            I bought this really enjoying how small this was. And it seemed like smash of fit a lot of product into something so small. The matte shades are phenomenal. The shimmer shadows that are the darker shades are lacking, however, where the lighter shimmer shades are very nice. I loved this palette.... Until I dropped it.

            The thing was, I dropped mine on CARPET. One of the pans completely popped out, most of the others shattered. The case was fine, but I tried to piece it back together by putting the shards of eyeshadows that cracked back together with alcohol.... It looks like a mangled MESS. So disapppointed. For mostly okay shadows, this wasn't the best buy to begin with, but it's tiny and carrier friendly. Unless you happen to drop it on any surface of your floor. I would only recommend this for people who want to take as much makeup as they can while taking up as little space as they can. This is even smaller and thinner than a naked basics eyeshadow palette. But if you want it as a new palette at home, be VERY careful not to drop at home on the bathroom or in your bedroom

                  I have fair to medium color tone and while the colors showed up well on the back of my hand in the store but not so much on my eyes.
                  I upgraded my brush set recently to It cosmetics and I also used a UD eyelid primer but I still did not could not get the colors to show up very well or give myself a flattering look with this palette. Especially the shimmery shades did not show up well or did not look as amazing on the eyes as they do in the palette....

                  Honestly, I was not wowed by this product. The texture of the eyeshadows were gritty and not up to par with more high end eyeshadows. I expected more from smashbox. However, even though I wasn't thrilled with the quality, I found that I could not bring myself to return it since it was such a good travel/purse item. I bring it to work and use it as a mirror daily.

                    I found this palette at the grab and go station. It has one row of shimmer and one row of matte shades. The shades are all neutral for everyday use or to amp up for a smokey look. This palette is the bombdiggity! It is super compact. The actual shadow pans are a good size. The shadows are some of the highest quality out there. I cannot say enough great things about this palette. TOTALLY worth it!

                        Smashbox does not claim that this product nor any of their other products are hypoallergenic. They do claim this product is nonacnegenic, meaning it does not clog pores and worsen acne.

                        Mini Full Exposure Palette is not vegan. It contains carmine, which is an animal-derived ingredient.

                        Mini Full Exposure is a great intro to the shades of the full size Full Exposure Palette! Compared to LORAC Pro, you get 8 shades (4 matte, 4 shimmer) with the Mini, and 16 (8 matte, 8 shimmer) with LORAC. Both palettes are very neutral and flatter all complexions and eye colors. We recommend testing the shades of both at your nearest ULTA store to see which you prefer:

                        The matte shades are velvety smooth and super blendable. Apply the shimmer shades by pressing down, rather than sweeping across lids, to ensure perfect application.
