Did you see last week's post about the April Glossybox? (Here)
Today's post is all about the Shaaanxo Palette that was created by Shannon Harris (Shaaanxo on Youtube) in collaboration with BH Cosmetics.
It's an 18 colour eyeshadow and lip colour palette and it's just lovely!
As I signed up to the mailer, I got early access to the pre-order which also made it slightly cheaper.
I got the email and went straight to the link to pre-order it and it was $14.50 (about £9.92) and then the shipping on top of that which was only about a £5 which I was thrilled with because usually American shipping is horendous!
I think the price is so good for 9 eyeshadows and 9 lip colours.
I also love that the eyshadows are on one side and the lip colours are on the other so you haven't got to worry about getting eyeshadow in the lippies! Both sides have a mirror too which is handy.
The palette contains the nine eyeshadows that vary from everyday neutrals to bold evening shades and nine lip colours that vary from nudes, pinks and reds and there's even a purple shade too! Definitely enough colours to suit everyone.
The pigmentation is really good but I'm struggling to get the impact onto my eyelids but I think that's more down to my rubbish primer and lack of appropriate eyeshadow brushes, so I'm going to have a play around and see what works for me.
The variety of shades is great, the lightest shade (that you basically can't see in the swatch) is a lovely highlighter for the inner eyes and brow bone. The next two shades on the top row and the middle shade on the middle row are very wearable shimmers.
You then have the yellow and brick red shades (middle row) which can be used as transition colours.
Lastly you have the bottom 3 shades which are duo-chrome, meaning that depending on where you look at it, it can look two different colours in the light. I don't have any duo-chrome shades so I'm excited to try these.
I can't get the impact onto my lips, but again I think it'll just be a case of playing around with different lip brushes and maybe using a lipliner as a base.
Otherwise these give a beautiful wash of colour which will be perfect for a fresh look for summer.
I love the variety of shades as you can go from day to night or subtle to dramatic.
They go great with the eyeshadows too.
My only bug bear with the lippies is that it'd be difficult to touch up during the day as I won't be taking the palette with me everywhere! Great for travel though.
A fab palette for the money! Such a reasonable price.
Plus I love Shannon so I wanted to support her.
What do you think of the Shaaanxo Palette?
Do you have any tips on how to get more impact from the shadows or lip colours?
