I was fortunate enough to get my hands on both the BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo palette and the Kylie Kyshadow Colour scheme and as many of us in the makeup world understands, they have been compared so many times it’ s hard to really differentiate which review is saying what.
So I believed I’ d go ahead and give you my honest review to both eyeshadow palettes and maybe help you decide which one to get. However hey you’ re more than welcome to get both items should you wish to have both. So today’ s recommendation will be for someone who is having a hard time choosing between the 2.
I will say though that they have such a difference in the price point that if you find it better or more useful to get the more budget-friendly palette go ahead, or if you are somebody who wants to get the more expensive palette then, by all means, it really is within how you learn to use the product.
Here’ t my honest comparison on the Kylie Kyshadow palette as well as the BH Cosmetics Shaaanxo Palette, note that the products were not by any means sponsored, so this review is completely honest based on my experience of the products.

Both palettes come in a cardboard boxes magnetic flip-top packaging. The Shaaanxo palette is larger in size (12. 5cm x 12. 5 cm within L and W) and has more products contained: nine eyeshadows and 9 lip colors. The packaging furthermore contains a mirror on both sides of the palette, since the Shaaanxo palette offers a dual-sided palette to house all 18 items.
The Kylie Kyshadow palette is a bit smaller 10. 5 cm by 10. 5 cm and thinner at 1 centimeter. It does not contain a mirror and it only has the 9 eyeshadows in it. The Kyshadow packaging does seem to be a bit more durable, and I mean it feels heavier, and the paper packaging appears like it’ s outfitted better and more snug compared to the product packaging of the Shaaanxo palette.
Since the actual point of assessment are the eyeshadows I won’ t be talking about the particular lip creams in the Shaaanxo palette, so let’ h dive right in.
At first glance you’ lmost all see that the eyeshadow palette seem similar in terms of color scheme used. Both of them are very brown and neutral and i believe this is where the comparison comes from, however , I would like to point out which i have seen the aesthetics of both Kylie Jenner plus Shaaanxo and I can see why they’ d both have the neutral universal palette. It seems to me, they have the same thing in your mind: creating an universal palette they would actually wear. And real enough I see Kylie Jenner in her palette plus Shannon Harris in hers. And this is actually where the assessment stops.
Upon touching and feeling the items, the Shaaanxo palette seems to be a bit more inconsistent in terms of compensation and pigmentation. Where some shades are highly pigmented and opaque; the others are more patchy and powdery. The particular shimmer shades of the Shaaanxo palette also seem to be a little chunky in texture with a lot of fallout and hardly any staying power.
The Kylie Kyshadow palette, in my own humble encounter, performs exponentially better than the Shaaanxo palette. Although there is really a learning curve to the Kyshadow palette, where you need to get utilized to and know how to use the product correctly. It is a bit more constant in terms of payoff, pigmentation, and longevity. All the eyeshadows are medium coverage, highly blendable, and easily buildable. I did not see any fall outs when I has been using and experimenting with the product which is really good. The shimmer shades are satin finish and appear to be finely machine made judging by how they feel on my fingers and how they appear like on the skin.
The cost point of these two products is nowhere near one another, with the Shaaanxo palette’ s price mark at $22 given that it’ s made in China and the Kylie Kyshadow palette setting you back for $45 for an item that is US-made.
How They Compare
Personally, I don’ t find these palettes comparable in any way, really just the number of eyeshadows in the palette. However, colors in the eyeshadow palette aren’ t similar in a closer look. Between the two, I reach more for that Kylie Kyshadow palette because I find it is more constant in terms of how the product performs which makes it easier for me like a professional, not having to second guess a product before I personally use it.
