Benecos makes me blush!

Left: “Sassy Salmon”  Right: “Mallow Rose”

Since I’m the owner of solely cream blushes, I decided to invest in some powder blushes in order to compare.

Not wanting to spend a fortune on a product which might not suit, or please me, I decided to turn to one of the most affordable natural cosmetics line: Benecos.
For 3,99 Euros each (approx. 6 dollars) they are definitely a steal, so I opted for two shades. (there are currently 3 shades, the third one being a light brown/coffee shade)
I’m already a big fan of Benecos’ eyeliners and when I saw that the German Consumer magazine Öko-Test, specialized in eco-living, gave them a “sehr gut” (transl.”very good” ) mark, for its quality, the deal was sealed.
I went for a coral/peachy color (or salmon tone if you prefer) and a pink, rosy shade.

Ingredients: TALC, MICA, KAOLIN, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, MACADAMIA TERNIFOLIA SEED OIL*, RICINUS COMMUNIS SEED OIL*,  MAGNESIUM STEARATE, GLYCERYLCAPRYLATE, P-ANISIC ACID*,  TOCOPHEROL*, HELIANTHUS ANNUUS SEED OIL*,  [+/- (MAY CONTAIN) CI 77891, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, CI 77742, CI75470, TIN OXIDE] * Certified organic

Impressions: 

– Highly pigmented. A gentle dab with your brush is
enough to perk up your cheeks.
– Both colors are subtle and delicate.
– No breakouts experienced on the areas where
powder was applied.
– Not too shimmery, perfect for daytime.
– Easily applicable & blendable
– Long-wearing
– “Sassy Salmon” looks more natural on me because
of my skin tone (fair skin with yellow undertone)

Would I recommend it? Yes

They’re are such a steal! The colors are really pretty, they give me a nice glow without irritating my skin or drying it out. I don’t think I’ll keep purchasing other powder blushes, these two ones are very satisfying and I have a feeling I’m going to use them a lot this winter if I want to avoid looking like a zombie 🙂

Powder vs. cream blush?

To be honest, the cream blushes I have – Vapour, rms beauty and The Juice Beauty – are terrific. They give a very natural glow and their ingredients list is incredible. Also, they are very easy to use; no need for brushes, a few dabs with your fingertips will do the trick.
However powder blushes give a more finished, polished look, I believe they are easier for contouring and more suitable for oily complexions as some cream blushes can appear greasy on the skin.

Have you tried Benecos blushes? Or any of their products? What do you prefer: powder or cream blushes? Let me know !

Take care,

Liz

    • The colours are really pretty. I was scared that it would look too bright on my skin but it blends really nicely. You're right, cream blushes tend to be more suitable for dry skin. I have oily skin, which is probably why I was so impressed with powder blush. x Liz

  • I've had my eye on this brand fir a while, my first and only purchase has been a pink lip liner which was a silly £3.45, and is fantastic, these blushers look great, the pink one has my name on it and looks like it would be good on a very fair skin. Great review flower xxx
