shaaanxo + bh cosmetics palette review

Rarely do I order makeup online. There is too much fear involved. I hate worrying about cracked eyeshadows, damaged packaging, and undelivered orders. Is anyone else like this? There is something to be said for going to a store and holding the product in your hands. Seeing it up close and personal. Testing the shades and making an informed decision. Despite being hesitant to buy makeup online...I found myself doing just that.

I have been watching Shannon Harris on YouTube (her channel Shaaanxo is crazy popular) for years now. There is something about her upbeat personality and honest reviews that I really enjoy. Not to mention her amazing tutorials and dupe videos. Gotta love a good beauty guru! When she announced the release of her eyeshadow and lipstick palette with bh cosmetics....I was entering my credit card information before I knew what I was doing. I could not resist!

This is a product that has been in my collection for several months now. But before I wrote a review of any kind (or filmed a YouTube video) I wanted to make sure I really dug into it. Honestly? This exceeded my expectations by a million miles. It came with nine eyeshadow shades (all neutrals but some are shimmery and some are matte) and nine lipstick shades (with nude shades, pretty pinks, and deeper colours as well). The quality is pretty amazing - and the sheer variety of eyeshadow and lipstick options is pretty fantastic. There are a ton of gorgeous looks you can create with this palette.

These pictures will give you a better idea of what you can expect inside...

As you can see from the photos above...there is a pretty fantastic shade selection. The standout shades for me on the eyeshadow side? That stunning rust shade and the shimmery champagne colour. As for the lipstick shades, I am loving that super bright pink and the medium nude colour. (There are sadly no names for the individual products so that makes identifying them a little trickier!)

After using this palette on and off for several months? I decided to film a couple of videos for my YouTube channel. The first can be seen in my last post. It was a Get Ready With Me featuring the Shaaanxo palette. The latest is a full review. Find out how this performs and check out some swatches!

We all have beauty gurus we look up to. Shaaanxo is definitely one of mine. Her palette with bh Cosmetics was pretty fantastic. It is one I continue to reach for.

Have you tried this palette? Which shade is your favourite?

    Have a nice week,

  2. Your makeup looks amazing! I agree about lip palettes, though, it's always a pain that you can't bring them with you. Thanks for the review :)
