Benecos Natural Powder Blush and Natural Eyeshadow

Benecos

Benecos is 100% vegan, cruelty free, and gluten free! Benecos was founded in Germany in 2008, and their goal was to make high quality, natural cosmetics available to all. Benecos didn’t want affordable prices and high quality, natural cosmetics to be a contradiction! I have written about other Benecos products in previous posts: Benecos Nail Polish and True Beauty Box Cruelty Free Cosmetics & Skin Care

Today’s post is about two more of their excellent products: a blush and an eyeshadow. Both are extremely pigmented and considering they are certified as cruelty free and organic, I believe they are very fairly priced.

I have two nail polish colors to share with you: Wild Orchid and Grenade. (If you’d like to see a previous post of another Benecos color, I was able to sample, Deep Plum, in the True Beauty Box.)

Benecos

Wild Orchid:

This is a beautiful medium berry color. I applied a base coat, then applied two coats of Wild Orchid on my nails for an opaque look. This Benecos nail polish is easy to apply and you’ll get a fantastic, shiny color, even without a top coat. Yes, I did apply a top coat on my nails for the photo, but it is absolutely not necessary to achieve the shine. If, however, you want your nail polish to last longer, you should apply a top coat. I had to change my polish after two days, but notably, I had no chips at all in that time.

Ingredients: Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol Trimellitic Anhydride Copolymer, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate, Isopropyl Grain Alcohol, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Sucrose Acetate Isobutyrate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, May Contain: Silica, Mica, Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide, Pigment Red 57, Red 220 , Pigment Black 7, Barium Sulphates, Ferric Ferrocyanide, Tartrazine

It’s a beautiful color, no matter what light. I wanted to make sure to have the color accurate, however. You can see in the photo below that it is not a red color.

Grenade:

I applied a base coat and then added Grenade on top of it. This creamy red color is beautiful, and I probably could have gotten away with one coat of polish. For the photo though, I put on two coats, and then a top coat. A top coat is not necessary for it to be shiny, but will make your polish last longer. I kept this polish on for 4 days before I changed it, and I didn’t have even the slightest chip!

Each Benecos polish is $11.99 for 9 ml, and the formula, the colors I’ve tested, and the ease of use, make it a high quality nail polish. Nothing negative to write at all.
