Shaaanxo Palette Review & Swatches

shaaanxo palette review

I was so excited when the postman delivered this, as soon as I shut the door I shrieked. The palette costs $22 (£17.63) but I bought it for £11 as it was at a discounted price. I then paid for shipping and handling which cost me £7.65. So overall, I paid an amazing price for this palette and it arrived within ten days of ordering, impressive. I'm sure everyone and their parents know who Shaaanxo is, need I explain?
The palette itself is so pretty, pink and girly. It has two sides - one side contains 9 lipsticks and the other side contains 9 eyeshadows. Both sides also have a mirror, which I love! The lids are magnetic too, so you won't have a problem of them flipping up and your palette getting dirty.

I adore these eyeshadows, as soon as I saw them I knew that I'd wear every shade. They're extremely pigmented and they come out how they look in the palette apart from one, the first one on the third row. It comes out a lot lighter than it looks in the palette. But, as it's a shimmer wet your brush first and the colour may look more true to itself once applied. With a mixture of 4 mattes and 5 shimmers, I'm happy. They're all easy to blend which is always a good thing and they're very light and easy to apply.

Before I managed to take pictures of the palette for this post, my sister decided to help herself and try one of the lipsticks out. As you can tell, she weren't discreet about it and I weren't happy. Having lipsticks in a palette threw me back to being eleven years old again. Except, when we had those 'cheap' palettes, the colours were very misleading. They always came out so much lighter than they looked in the palette AND they all looked the same colour.

My first impression of these were that they looked way too bright for my liking. Well, my opinion changed shortly. After swatching each one, I don't think there was one I didn't love. The consistency of these are super creamy, thick and oily. BH Cosmetics states that you may see small droplets of natural oils appear on the surface of the lipsticks. This is completely normal due to the ingredients. Simply swirl your lip brush on the products surface to mix them back in. I love that they're oily and creamy as they apply so well.

What you see is what you get with these lipsticks. Every one is true to colour. They also last ages - until you eat or drink. The darker colours do stain but you can eventually get rid of the stained lip. Again, these are so pigmented. I love this palette, I can see me using this everyday if I wanted to. Shannon has picked a great choice of colours of lipsticks and eyeshadows for everyones liking. Buy the palette here.

  1. I totally admit to not knowing who Shaaanxo was when this palette first came out XD But anyways, this palette seems like such a great value! The pigmentation on those lipsticks is awesome! Just looking at them I had assumed them to be lightly tinted balms but the pigmentation so on point!
