      I've used Smashbox eye shadows before and have been very pleased. I was really excited about the colors on this palette but they do not stay on very well - not later in the day - I'm talking as I'm applying it. The glitter ones spray to the side of my face and the non-glitter ones are better but I have to use a lot of those to stay.

            Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Palette:

            Ok, so when this first came out I was excited. For a while I had been contemplating purchasing the Urban Decay Naked pallet, but this made me uneasy with my previous thinking. I remembering walking around the Ulta near me and thinking, "Wow, thanks Smashbox...now I have no idea what to do except for the fact that I think I most definitely need you!" Compared to Urban Decay Naked Pallet, this gave me more matte finishes and a greater range of colors that looked absolutely beautiful. I swatched some on the back of my hand to get a look and feel for the product...it seemed wonderful. The brown I tried was rich and deep, the gold was nice, shimmery, and warm. I figured I would try something different than my tried and true. It made sense at the time of purchase I guess. Anyway, after having this pallet for a while I have grown to hate it and seriously regret my decision in purchasing it. The pigmentation is awful, and it takes so much eyeshadow to achieve your desired look; even an extremely natural, light eye. My eyes feel heavy and weighed down. No matter what I try, the color doesn't show up well and it takes A LOT. I have used different primers, both prestige and bargain brands, concealer as a base, and even pulled out and used my foundation. I mean it seemed promising and looks amazing, but looks can be deceiving and ARE in this case. For reference I have combination skin, and range from light to medium skin tones with a olive hue. This was and still is a major let down.

                I find that most of the colors need alot of layer g to even show. I had higher hopes for smashbox. I think I'll stick with kat von d.

                Comments about Smashbox Full Exposure Palette:

                I purchased this for my mother around holiday season. And got the mini palette of this for myself at the same time to throw in my purse because I really liked the colors. She was really excited about it, but after a while I noticed she was dipping into my naked palette. When I asked her about it she said my naked palette was much easier to use than this Smashbox one. So I decided to try it for myself. First of all, the brush they give you for this stinks. And second of you have to put A LOT of product on your brush/lid for any pigmentation to even show up (yes I use a shadow primer). My eyes felt heavy and it was creasing within minutes. It wasn't very easy to blend either. Needless to say I went back and got a naked 2 for my mother so she stopped using mine. I'm just so disappointed I wanted to love this. I kept it only because I like to throw the glitter shades on over whatever I have on my eye. But this palette is honestly just taking up space in my vanity. Bummer.

                All i have to say is WET YOUR BRUSH. I loev this palette. For people to say it has too much fallout is dumb. Every eyeshadow has fallout its natural. But wetting your brush stops it right away . So many looks to create.

                            What I love about this product is you get beautiful matte colors, with great matching shimmer shadows. It's a perfect 2 in one and the range of colors are just beautiful, and very easy to blend.

                                Yes, you can certainly apply these shadows "wet" using a dampened brush for a foiled effect or as eyeliner.
