Full exposure as well as I spent last weekend together. just the two of us (and El Hub). On Friday night, we did a cool-toned smokey eye (like what I’m using in these pics) as well as went out to dinner. then on Saturday we did a nude shimmery lid with a bit liner, stayed home, did laundry as well as watched game of Thrones (the combination is not a fan of home Lannister). I whipped up this warm brown feline eye while unsuccessfully trying to stop Tabs from jumping into a stack of clean shirts as well as denim that needed to be folded…

On Sunday I just kept things simple with a nude matte lid as well as a smidgen of brown liner along my upper as well as lower lash lines.

So many possibilities!

And with all of the looks I tried, I still always felt like me, as well as not like “me with a sh*t-ton of eye makeup on,” if that makes any type of sense.

Full exposure is one of those palettes that packs just sufficient pigment to define as well as phone call interest to my lids, however not so much that I feel like a rodeo clown…

Hahaha! I just totally made myself laugh.

Now, if you crave pigment out to HERE, this may not be your bowl of gravy. With the exception of the heavily pigmented dark brown as well as the black matte shades, I’d state that most of the shadows in this 14-pan combination are only moderately pigmented.

I believe of this as a true neutral neutral combination (neutral neutral?), in that the warm- as well as cool-toned colors are neither as well awesome nor warm. Rather, they’re in the Goldilocks zone as well as should fit most skin tones.

I should point out that I did experience a bit after effects (just a small bit) with these shadows as well as some fading after about 7-8 hours of wear (and that was on top of primer), however I generally had an simple time blending them… I did requirement a few additional windshield wiper swipes to thoroughly buff out the darkest brown as well as black matte eyeshadows.

Oh, the combination likewise includes a small tube of full exposure Mascara (better for thickening than lengthening) as well as a dual-ended brush.

I usually end up tossing the brushes that include palettes, however I believe this one’s really quite great as well as not scratchy at all, although I do desire the flat eyeshadow end was a bit denser.

If you lean more toward Bobbi brown than, say, Illamasqua, you may truly like the full exposure combination (you may still like it either way).


I believe this will be fantastic for days when I just want to wear something straight-up pretty. just add pink or peach cheeks as well as lips as well as a fantastic set of false lashes.
