BH Cosmetics is a US based beauty brand which very recently launched on to Beauty Chamber which is amazing news as I no longer have to worry about paying customs fees, or wait for three weeks for my orders to arrive. I’ve tried a few BH Cosmetics palettes over the years and I’ve always been really impressed but I’ve been dying to get my hands on the stunning BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo Eyeshadow and Lipstick Palette as I’ve been watching Shaaanxo on YouTube for a good four years.
The palette contains nine eyeshadows as well as nine lipstick shades in one with a double sided design with magnetic lids, and mirrors within both sides of the palette. I really can’t believe this palette is only £12.95 considering it contains nine shadows and nine lipsticks as it works out at just 71 pence per shade within the palette which is amazing. The palette is made from sturdy cardboard, and it’s relatively compact so it’d make for a good travel palette as it feels pretty robust.

BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo Eyeshadow and Lipstick Palette – The Eyeshadows
I’m an eyeshadow addict so the eyeshadows within this palette are definitely my favourite, and I’m so impressed with the quality of these shades. As always my swatches are done without primer, and these dry swatches are from circling my fingertip within each pan just twice and I think you’ll agree, they’re amazingly pigmented for such a budget friendly palette. Sometimes bloggers/influencers bring out products and I think they have perhaps just put their name to a product without actually having creative control, but if you watch Shannon’s videos, you’ll know that the shades within this palette are definitely Shan’s kind of shades.
The palette contains a mixture of matte, shimmer and duochrome finishes in warm, cool and neutral tones with a very pigmented and blendable formula with very little fallout. It really is one of the best eyeshadow palettes you can purchase under £15 in my opinion, and even if you don’t think you’ll use the lipstick palette part of the palette, I still think the palette is worth a purchase as £12.95 is a really good price for nine eyeshadows of this quality.
Top Row: 1) Pale beige cream matte 2) Light champagne shimmer 3) Rose gold shimmer
Middle Row: 4) Pale mustard yellow matte 5) Bronze shimmer 6) Warm reddy brown matte
Bottom Row: 7) Cool toned browny taupe shimmer 8) Warm chocolate brown matte with a blue/green duochrome shimmer shift 9) Very dark brown matte
BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo Eyeshadow and Lipstick Palette – The Lipsticks
I have to be honest, I don’t really use lipstick palettes as I don’t find them to be very usable as you’d have to take the whole palette with you if you need to top up your lipstick during the day, which isn’t ideal with a palette of this size. I do however think this side of the palette is a good way to be able to experiment with lip colour shades you’ve perhaps not tried before to see if they suit you, before purchasing a full size lipstick.
I’ve tried a few lipstick palettes like this and they do tend to be quite greasy and lacking in pigmentation but the majority of these shades are super pigmented, and the bolder shades stain the lips too. For all of these shades I’d recommend using a lip brush to apply them to ensure application is as precise as possible, and if you use a lip brush such as the Zoeva 330 Lip Contour Brush, you can apply lipstick to the brush in the morning and put the lid on it so you have product to top up with during the day.
Top Row: 1) Medium pink 2) Sheer coral 3) Bold red
Middle Row: 4) Browny toned nude 5) Purple toned pink 6) Bright pink
Bottom Row: 7) Sheer pinky toned nude 8) Deep red 9) Dark berry
