Benecos makes me blush!

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.
