How do Iove thee, Shany? Let me count the ways…

27 Oct

This product review is long overdue. I bought the Shany Cosmetics 120 eyeshadow palette last year as a birthday present to myself. Little did I know that it would turn out to be one of the GREATEST makeup investments of all time! *SHEDS TEAR*

Shany Cosmetics 120 Eyeshadow Palette

  • Price: 5 out of 5
  • Packaging: 4 out of 5
  • Efficacy: 5 out of 5
  • Overall rating: 50,847 stars

The palette consists of two trays stacked on top of each other inside of a matte black case. Each tray has 90 shadows in it & is covered by a plastic sheet to guard against excessive fallout. Although my box was packed with bubble wrap, two shadows were broken during shipping 😦 This was a minor setback & IMO it didn’t warrant sending the whole thing back. I just handle each tray with care, so that nothing spills out. If you don’t like brights, buying this palette would be a waste of money. It has a few neutral colors, but the majority are brightly colored e/s in a variety of finishes… matte, satin, shimmer & frost are ALL represented. *LOVES THIS* And did I mention affordability? I spent about $30 on mine, including tax & shipping. You can purchase it from either Amazon or Shany Cosmetics for just $19.75!  

What don’t I like about it?

  • The name “120 palette” is a misnomer. Although it has 120 individual e/s, about 20 of them are duplicates.
  • The darker, matte blues in this palette suck! They’re not very pigmented & have a dusty finish. The Zeta in me IS NOT amused by this!
  • The yellow e/s are kinda chalky.
  • I wish it had a few more shades of purple.

 I’ll admit that fifty thousand stars is overkill, but this palette is my fave! Gripes aside, you need it in your life! 

These are a few of my favorite Shany faces…
