Shaaanxo Palette Review

Curious about the Shaaanxo palette? Never heard of it? Read on!

It was not too long ago that the Shaaanxo palette burst onto the scene, and exploded all over the page of any instagramer who’s both a kiwi and a makeup lover. With 9 eyeshadows and 9 lipsticks, all in one slim, affordable palette, it was sure to be a hit. Created to be affordable to us NZ ladies, it is currently on sale for only $21.50(NZ) at!

As a fan of it’s creator, 23 year old Youtube sensation Shannon Harris, I was online on the launch night, and was among the first to receive my palette. Now that I’ve had a chance to play with my new toy, I’m happy to review it and let you know weather you should get excited about this palette from BH Cosmetics. 🙂


To start with price, shipping – both are both fantastic. This whole palette cost less than your average lipstick from Farmers and travelled from America to my doorstep in New Zealand in under 2 weeks. This with the most cost-effective shipping and at the time the company was busiest! It also came packed very securely, they clearly aren’t taking any chances. It has a very pretty, classic design with soft pink ‘bokeh’ and ‘Shaaanxo’ stamped on in metallic silver.


So, once I got my hands on it, what did I find? We’ll start with the eyeshadows, since I think that’s the number one reason most people are interested in this. The Shaaanxo BH Cosmetics palette comes with 9 eyeshadow shades and I have to say, they give you a ton of variety. With everything from a matte fleshtone to a matte black you can do the most natural of ‘No-makeup makeup look’ to the most dramatic nightclub looks there are. It’s not a completely neutral palette either, along with the browns, bronze and champagne there are flashes of colour. Green in a duochrome shade, a pinky-gold shimmer top right, and of course the brick and tangerine shades in the middle row.


It’s on the lipstick side that things get dramatic. Oxblood, barbie pink, neon peach, orange, soft purple, this side is definitely for those who like to experiment. That said, there’s a classic berry/red and two nude shades to keep the rest of us happy.

So, who is this palette for? Honestly, I would recommend it to anyone who’s interested as the quality, price and packaging are all fantastic! That said, I think it would suit very warm toned people especially well. If you look great in gold jewelery and tan easily the shades here will really suit you. The eyeshadows would be especially flattering on someone with hazel or green eyes, as the reddish tones are complementary to green. I think those with darker skin tones in general will love this palette as those bright shades will be true and vibrant even on very pigmented lips.

So there you have it, the Shaaanxo palette gets a big A+ from me! Will you be trying it? What do you think of all the shades?
