...They look to be the same repackaged made in China crap as BH/Coastal Scents etc etc... I wouldn't bother. Look at Yaby if you want some great palettes with lots of colours.

Some invaluable advice from KJB.

I bought Shany cosmetics and well, not very pigmented. I have to work at it to get its true color to stand out. I agree, get Yaby. Yaby by far has great pigmentation.

I've tried the brand but I haven't actually used them in anything. It's pretty much like generic packaging. I get their nail stuff for personal use though. smile

I've had the opportunity to use them. Their eye shadows last a good amount of time for the 2013 product line. They are inexpensive and yes China made, but keep in mind they are made by the same plant that does a good amount of big name cosmetic companies.
