Wait, Did Kylie Jenner Just Steal From A YouTuber?!

The similarities are pretty darn clear.
After Jeffree Star kicked up a fuss about Kylie Jenner's lip kits and their poor 'wand' quality upon arrival, we thought we'd seen the end of YouTubers coming after the social media mogul and her sell-out beauty line. However, it seems like Shaaanxo wants to weigh in on the matter after she threw some serious shade at Kylie for the shocking similarities between their eyeshadow palettes.
Shannon's palette, which was released back in April 2016, features nine beautiful metallic shades for the affordable price of $11. On the other side of this drama is Kylie Jenner and her brand new cosmetics venture, KyShadow, which also features nine matte shades at the unfathomable cost of $42. After the KyShadow palettes sold out in a record time of 60 seconds, Shannon took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the collection:
Now, anybody versed in the language of emoji's knows that no one simply puts together the frog and teacup emoji's by accident - it refers to the shady "But It's None Of My Business" meme, where individuals bring to light "questionable behaviours". Therefore it was no surprise that, following this tweet, both Shannon and Kylie's fans kicked up a fuss because the YouTuber posted side by side images of Kylie's potentially stolen palette so publicly.
Only one day after this shade was thrown over Twitter, Shaaanxo finally had enough of the drama and clarified that she "never once said 'Kylie copied me'", and she was purely recognising that "they look similar". She also admitted that many neutral eyeshadow palettes look the same as they're all based around one wheel of colour, so their collections were destined to look the identical. Whilst we're sure the colours are a pure coincidence, we can't help but agree that the packaging looks noticeably alike...
