Benecos Natural Beauty Review

Recently I posted about vegan, cruelty free makeup (Beauty Kitchen) and Benecos saw the post and decided to get in touch. They offer natural, organic and vegan beauty so you can look your best without worrying! Fab eh? So today I'll be reviewing a range of products they sent me to try!

Benecos got in touch and asked if I'd like to review some of their products. Benecos were formed back in 2010 and ensure that their makeup is made up of high quality ingredients that are all natural and organic where possible! I was sent a mascara, eyeshadow and nail varnish to try and I've been really pleased with what I received.

It's no secret that I'm a complete maniac for nail varnish so I was excited to try one that contains 90% natural ingredients and are quick drying and enriched with avocado and Biotin. I was sent the shade Mystery which is a nude mauve colour. I must admit I never, ever go for a nude nail I'm definitely more of a black nails kinda girl BUT I think this is the one exception. In just one coat it left me with a gorgeous colour, no streaks and really good coverage.

I've had it on about 24 hours now and I have managed to chip it but I didn't bother with a top coat or a second coat as I wanted to see how it held up. I do however spent a lot of time doing up poppers on baby clothes and changing nappies so I'm definitely not holding the chip against the polish, my nails have a rough time currently!

The mascara I received was the natural mascara glamour look in black. I usually use Eyeko Skinny Brush mascara which is a high end product, coming in at £16.50 a tube it's my be all and end all so I didn't have high hopes for it. I was however completely shocked by just how good it actually is.

Not only is it a true black but the wand is a lovely size which enables you to get even the smallest lashes with ease and it doesn't clump or leave you with spider lashes. I've been wearing this for around 4 days now so I could properly road test it and even after 10 hours of wear my lashes are still large and in charge. It doesn't flake or smear but it isn't waterproof, I did have a bit of a moment with some black rivers after my child decided to soak me during his bath but as I don't usually wear waterproof mascara this wouldn't put me off.

I was shocked at just how long it made my lashes look and while I don't think I'm ready to give up my holy grail of mascaras this one will definitely be a repeat purchase for me and a perfect everyday mascara.

Last but by no means least is the eyeshadow. I got the natural mono-eyeshadow in the shade choco cookie and it's the most delicate smoky, shimmery brown. It is a very subtle colour but it is buildable and blends out like a dream. I've been wearing this for about 3 days now and have noticed it doesn't disappear into my crease or get wiped off onto other areas of my eye. It stays put once it's on and lasts all day without touching up.

Not only are the eyeshadows vegan but they also contain vitamin E, castor oil and Macadamia oil to help keep your skin hydrated and protected. As you may know if you've been reading my blog for any amount of time, I'm not the biggest eyeshadow fan but I really like this subtle shade that helps me mix up my daily makeup routine without any hassle.

So the big question; would I buy these myself? Yes.
I've been super impressed with the range and the mascara is definitely going to be purchased in the future. I'd love to try a few other bits from the range after my positive experience such as the eyeliner and foundation.

Are you a natural/vegan beauty lover? What are your favourite items?

Until next time,
