I've been a fan of Benecos for probably about two years, I haven't tried tons from them but the products I have tried I've thoroughly got along with and liked a lot. I love that they are cruelty free, vegan friendly and also organic. They've recently released a whole bunch of new products in their Spring/Summer collection and I was sent some bits to try out for myself so in today's post I'm going to be talking about how I've got on with them and if I'd recommend them.

First up is the Natural Face Primer* which I've really been enjoying using, especially whilst the weather has been a lot warmer. It's definitely more of a water-based primer which I personally like and it feels really hydrating upon application and it sinks in quickly. It does leave a slight tacky finish but I know people like that as it helps other base products to stick better. It also contains Aloe Vera which again, I really like because I do have redness in my cheeks and I can see a bit of a difference when using the Natural Face Primer. So overall I like it and would pick up again. You can pick it up for £6.95 on the Benecos website.


Next is the Natural Eyebrow Gel to fill, shape and define your brows. I received the clear option but you can also buy it in Brunette and Ash Brown. I think it's a nice brow gel and easy to use with a small brush which I personally prefer so it doesn't get everywhere. Will it be replacing my beloved Glossier Boy Brow? No. But I do think it's a good cheaper alternative but I do like the pomade kind of effect that Boy Brow offers whereas Benecos' eyebrow gel doesn't do that.



I also received the Natural Fun Size Mascara in Black Onyx* which is only £2.95 but unfortunately it just didn't anything to my stubborn lashes. It has a very basic straight up and down kind of brush, so as soon as I saw it I was like "hmmm that's not going to work for me". I think if you already have lovely long lashes which hold a curl pretty well then you'll probably like this mascara but it's just not the one for me.


-Shooting Star, Rose Please, Lilac Light and Muddy Olive-
Lastly is the gorgeous My Beauty "It-Pieces" Customisable Palette in Pretty Cold RRP £26.45* which would make a perfect travel companion. It contains a gorgeous highlight in the shade "Shooting Star", a pretty blush in the shade "Rose Please" and 4 eye shadows in the shades "Ballerina Glam", "Lilac Light", Muddy Olive" and "Blue Galaxy". First of all I love the names of the shades and I think they suit the colours so well. I love the highlighter in the palette and it's definitely the stand out product in the palette for me. It's so pretty and not too overpowering which I prefer from a highlighter. The blush is very nice and works well with my skin tone. I've also found the eye shadows to be nice too. They are pigmented but in a muted way if that makes sense and you can build them up to a more bolder colour. I've found that they also apply nicely and last well. I was sent a refill eyeshadow in Prismatic Pink RRP £3.95* aswell but I haven't got around to trying it yet because I've been using the other shades in the palette but I have swatched it and it's very pretty. I think it will work well with the shades "Ballerina Glam" and "Lilac Light". 

They've also released some other new products in their Spring/Summer releases which I'm interested in trying including their Foundation Stick, Matte Liquid Lipstick and their BB Cream too.

Have you tried anything from Benecos before? If so, what did you think?
