Smashbox's Full Exposure Palette is Boxing Clever

14 shadow shades plus a decent brush in a sturdy case with a large mirror in the lid? Why, there is nothing else to say but "OooOh"

Smashbox Full Exposure Palette

We very likely don't need yet another neutrals palette in our lives

Yes, let's get the elephant in the room out of the way first: this is yet another neutrals palette and we very likely don't need yet another neutrals palette in our lives.

Whether we want one is quite another matter.

Smashbox gives good kits. This is a #TruFact. Creamy consistencies, deep pigmentation, good shade edits; the Full Exposure Palette, €43, lands on January 3rd and is a case in point.

It contains a mix of 14 neutral shades, from warm to cool. There are mattes, shimmers and metallics.

Pleasingly, there are a good number of cool shades, so it is one you won't find yourself totally limited with if you prefer chillier colours. The double-ended brush is decent, the packaging is a sturdy matte plastic and it's all-in-all, a very wantable piece of kit.

Me likey. Like the addition of those greys too. I am searching for a new palette and if this had a deep plum it might have been the one.

Hmmmm - I already have the Naked 1 palette and I have the Tom Ford trio in She Wolf on my Christmas list, so I know I don't *need* another palette. But its mighty purdy all the same...
