You may be thinking that this looks like any other neutral eyeshadow palette out there. While this Full Exposure Palette does indeed have a range of colours that eyeshadow lovers are quite familiar with, Smashbox gives you a whole new way to use them. Along with the sample-sized Full Exposure mascara, the kit comes with a handy how-to pamphlet that has 18 (yes, 18!) mini-tutorials on how to get your best day, night and defined look. The reason there’s 18 is because each tutorial is customized for a different eye shape: almond, round, upturned, downturned, monolid and hooded. So genius! And also so, so easy to use.
