I’m an avid follower of Shaaanxo from YouTube and after being so impressed by BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel palette (you can read that review here) I had to get the BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo Palette.
Shaaanxo is one of my favourite Youtubers to watch, I especially love her foundation first impressions and lipstick search videos. If you haven’t watched any of her videos then get on it! She gives the good and the bad points of products which is what I’m all about too.
‘YouTube beauty vlogger and makeup artist Shannon Harris, known to her fans as Shaaanxo shares her makeup secrets with an inspirational message. Her girl-next-door relatability and engaging personality make her the most subscribed-to channel in New Zealand and one of the top beauty influencers globally. Shaaanxo has hand-picked a mix of dynamic and down-to-earth shades that add up to a multitude of wearable looks that flatter a variety of skin tones.’
The pBH Cosmetics Shaaanxo Palette has 18 colours, 9 eyeshadows and 9 lipsticks. It’s cleverly designed in that the eyeshadows are on one side and the lipsticks are on another which means the powders won’t mix with the creams and it avoids a horrible mess. Both sides have a handy mirror so overall really impressed the design and convenience of the BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo Palette.
The eyeshadows have a wide mix of textures and finishes including mattes, shimmers and even a duo chrome (which I love!). There’s also a good mix of shades including dark and light which (as the old cliche goes) can take you from day to night. There’s so many shades that I love and that are quite unique.
The shadows are pigmented, they blend easily, they don’t crease and they last a long time. There’s a bit of fall out with the shimmer shades but not so much that I would complain about wasting the product.
The lipsticks have a wide mix of shades and tones so there’s something to suit everyone. There’s a mix of nude, pink, orange and red with bright, neutral and dark shades.
I like the lipsticks colours but I don’t see myself using them all the time. I’ve other lipsticks in my collection that I’ve been reaching for over these. They aren’t particularly long lasting and there isn’t a lot of product in each pan.
The palette I bought was the first batch which had issues with the lipsticks but I have to say that once I’d made them aware of the issue they sent out a replacement once the lipstick issue was fixed.
Although I’m not reaching for the lipsticks that much I absolutely love the palette. I think it’s great value for money at $14 USD. The quality of the eyeshadows is amazing for this price and I’d highly recommend making the purchase.
I’ll keep buying any celebrity or blogger/vlogger palettes brought out by BH cosmetics because I’ve been so impressed by BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo Palette and the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette.
