BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo Palette

I had been lusting after the BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo palette ever since it was released. I follow Shaaanxo's YouTube account and I was wowed by the palette. Also, coming from BH Cosmetics, I knew it would be well in my budget.

Taken from BH Cosmetics- "...Shaaanxo had 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."



I love the pale pink and white marble look packaging. Very pretty.




Open up one side and there is 9 eye shadow shades.





 The other side reveals the lipsticks.

With this double sided palette your eye shadow look and lipstick is covered. I appreciate the magnetic closure, not only does it make the palette secure, but also is easy to open so my nails are safe, lol.

I found that using these eye shadows, I don't need another palette to complete an eye look. Perfect transition, crease and outer v colours. There's also a nice selection of shimmery shades for the lid. The mattes are a little powdery, but are smooth and blend beautifully. The shimmers are nicely pigmented and apply well to the lid.

I was less excited about the lipstick palette side. Don't get me wrong, they are decent lipsticks. Nice and creamy with decent colour pay off. Lipstick palettes are just not my favourite. I much prefer a tube.

I love this palette! To be honest, I would prefer just the eye shadows. Thankfully, the eye shadows and lipsticks are packaged separately.

  1. I'm the same with lipsticks, I don't like the ones in pans. But those eyeshadows look amazing, though! xx

  2. I prefer lipsticks in a tube rather than a pan as well - it means having to use a lip brush & I'm lazy & forget about that lol. The eyeshadow palette colours are right up my alley though! (If only I didn't have other similar palettes...)

  4. I hate lipsticks in palettes, I think it's just way too complicated to reapply the color. On the other hand, they eyeshadows look great. I love alll loooka you've created with it.

  5. Looks like another winner from bh - this company does eye shadows SO well, I still reach for my Take Me To Brazil palette at least once a week. Love your looks Indie - I'm not so keen on lip palettes either, but some of these pinks are GORGEOUS! XXX
