If you’re a true blue Makeup Obsessive, there’s no doubt you will have heard of the phenomenon that is Shaaanxo, aka Shannon Harris. This New Zealand beauty guru has gone from strength to strength in the past couple of years starting off with her own YouTube channel which currently has over 670,000 subscribers, and a vlogging channel on YouTube with over 165,000 subscribers. She also has over 58,000 followers on Twitter, and is basically known globally as a major influence on all things beauty related.
Therefore it’s a given that Shannon knows what she’s talking about when it comes to makeup and how to apply it; so when she launched her own range of beauty products via her online store xoBeauty.com, success naturally followed. Starting out with a brush line (which I will be reviewing the the following weeks), Shannon has just released her own line of false lashes on the 6th of January, 2014!
There are a total of 6 different styles of lashes in the xoBeauty collection, and they are all super lush! I normally veer away from false lashes in general because I find application tricky, but I couldn’t resist these guys. I love how they’re all re-usable, and I love how high quality they are- handmade, nice and soft, and perfectly formed. The price point is excellent at just $6.99 per pair (or $5.50 for the half lashes)- you may as well stock up on your favourites- or all of them ;)
Below you can find out how I found each style, and how they can be used. I strongly encourage you guys to check out Shannon's tutorials for incredibly more detailed information (link below), as well as our other talented NZ YouTube beauty gurus such as Arna, Gio and Jah, because I know for a fact they've all tried them and love them! You really can't get a better recommendation than that. You all know how strongly I feel about supporting New Zealand brands too, and Shannon is such a doll- I promise you you'll love them.
Now, my other personal favourites are definitely “The Feline” lashes, because if I do decide to do a more glam makeup look, I inevitably do a winged eye liner, cat-eye style. “The Feline” style are perfect for this because of how beautifully they wing out on the end- they elongate the eye and truly complete the look like no other false lash set could. These are a must-have for anyone who is a fan of this style, and for any makeup artist’s kit.
xoBeauty will soon be stocking Duo Adhesive, which is the only false lash glue I will ever use- it comes in clear and black, and it’s an absolute dream to work with. The large tube will last you for absolute ages too. Keep an eye on the website http://www.xobeautyshop.com/ for availability so you can stock up on it, it’s a must-have item!
As you can probably tell, I’m a fan- and I’m 100% sure these bad boys are going to be a hit worldwide. If I were you I’d zoom over to xoBeauty and order as many as you can, while you can!
