There is a real disadvantage being a member of Facebook Make Up enthusiasts Groups: It is costing me money! A new palette released by BH Cosmetics came to my attention in one of these group:
YouTube Beauty Vlogger and make up artist Shannon Harris (Shaaanxo) shares her make up secrets with an inspirational message. Now a top global beauty influencer, Shaaanxo has handpicked 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 have been a fan of NZ Shaaanxo and I enjoy her videos a lot. I have bought a few BHCosmetics items in the past. BH Cosmetics have great, affordable palettes and brushes and the Shaaanxo palette is no exception. You may remember the Carli Byble palette I used for my Christmas make up.
I was particularly interested in this collab because of the colours in the eyeshadow palette. Every single one is a colour I would definitely use again and again.
It consists of 9 eyeshadow colours and 9 lipsticks. I am not such a fan of lipstick palettes, it becomes messy after a while. The palette itself is quite nifty, with eyeshadows on one side and the lipsticks on the other side, with mirrors on both sides!
Today I am using 5 colours of the eyeshadows, and one of the lipsticks. Also using my BH Cosmetics Rose Gold brushes
Have a look and see what you think. The video is only 3:22 minutes. Just enough to go get tea and a biscuit.
Other Products used:
- Foundation: Kat von D Lock it Tattoo Foundation in Medium 54
- Eyebrows: Anastasia Beverley Hills in Dark Brown
- Eyeliner: NARS Kohliner in Tragic
- Mascara: NARS Audacious
- Contouring: Hourglass Superficial Mirage
- Highlighting: Hourglass Brilliant Strobe lighting
As you can see the eyeshadows are beautifully pigmented. Will swatch the others in another post. A lovely mix of matte and shimmery colours. A shame however, they are not named or numbered. Just a small criticism. Otherwise I am perfectly happy with this palette.
You can purchase from the BH Cosmetics website, they will ship internationally with quite a reasonable shipping cost. And Super fast! The palettes are currently on special for US$14.50 and shipping was US$5.50. Well worth it.
Have you tried any of the BH Palettes?
Til next time,
