I’ll admit that I don’t really venture too deep into natural makeup because I sort of have not so great experiences in the past with anything when it comes to natural. Keep in mind, “natural” is a new concept for me, so I haven’t had TONS of experience. Despite those few negative experiences, I’m always, always down for trying a new brand! I’ve never even heard of Benecos and don’t quite know how to pronounce it either, but was excited to learn that it was a natural beauty brand made with plant and mineral based products.
Benecos recently launched some brand new products that include eye shadows, sun bronzer and even vegan mascara, and I was sent three of them to test out and review!
First up, I received a sample of their Natural Light Foundation in the shade Sahara (the lightest shade). I noticed right away that they only have three shades to pick from – having such a small selection always baffles me! It’s very difficult to match everyone with just 3 shades, BUT, I was pleasantly surprised to find out how much I loved this foundation! Not only was the coverage great, but the shade matched me well and did not oxidize on me. I hope that down the road they come out with more of a shade range.
Their natural eye shadows stood out right away because of how pretty they were! It’s always a dilemma when a makeup product makes you want to not touch it because of how pretty is – that’s also probably a bit hoarder-ish of me, too! The shade I received was So What a shade of champagne with a hint of sheen! If using this as an eye shadow isn’t your thing, you can always swipe below your brows for a simple highlighter.
These are the shades I’m gravitating to lately, so I was really happy to see the shade First Love in my package! The lipstick was creamy and moisturizing! Have you heard of this brand before? What about any other natural cosmetic brands?
