SmashBox full Exposure Travel Palette and Swatches

By Wednesday, April 01, 2015 , , , , , , , , , ,

Last fall I picked up the Smashbox Full Exposure Travel Palette. I pretty much picked it up as a poor attempt to not buy the full sized version. I liked that it was half matte and have shimmer.
This baby is tiny, I mean tiny. Much smaller and flatter than the Urban Decay Basic palettes, which is great for tossing in any bag for travel. It also has a nice sized mirror on the lid. The shadows themselves are not tiny though, they are pretty darn big. The palette net weight is 6g, which is pretty darn big for such a tiny palette (btw a Mac eyeshadow is 1.5g)

Below are some swatches, the higher up swatches are the top row and the lower swatches are the bottom row (matte shades).
As you can see they go on pretty rich, but the shimmer shades have crazy amount of fall out and some need a bit of fixer to make them go on less sheer.
For the $23 Canadian it sells for at Sephora I think it is definitely a nice mini set to get for any time you want some neutrals without shelling out a ton.
