Benecos mascara and blush brush review




    Benecos are a new budget friendly green beauty brand on the block and I was eager to try some of their products as greener make up usually comes with a hefty price tag. The brand is BDIH certified and contains natural and organic ingredients. I bought two items the natural volume mascara and the blush brush both really well priced, and both are items that I have enjoyed. 

    The blush brush (£8.95) is vegan and made with synthetic bristles that are very soft, it is cut at a slight angle and is a great size for applying bronzer or blusher. It applies powders beautifully and washes really well with no shedding so far. The handle is made from bamboo which is a sustainable crop and it slightly shorter which makes it really good for popping in you handbag. 


    The Benecos maximum volume mascara (£6.95) is an absolute bargain for a natural mascara. It adds a nice definition to the lashes but I wouldn't say it adds lot's of volume or length, for me it's a good work day mascara and it lasts the day without too much smudging as long as I make sure to powder my under eye concealer. I have naturally quite long eyelashes but I like to make them darker and fuller, I would like some more volume from this but overall it's a good product for the price and I would happily buy it again. I like the wand and find it very easy to apply.  


    

    The photo shows just one coat of mascara, it can be built up but I do find you have to wait a little between coats. Overall I am very happy with my first Benecos experience and I have added the blushers and eye shadows to my wish list. The brush is superb quality and gets used everyday. Have you tried Benecos? What did you think?

  1. I have a Benecos mascara, and I really like it! I would prefer that it removed more of the product when you draw up the wand, but for £6.95 I'm impressed. I like the look of this one too, although from what you've said, I don't know that it would be too different from the one I have. xx

  3. I've seen Benecos but haven't tried them yet! :-) Lovely review, the blusher brush looks abit like the Sigma curved-top synthetic kabuki ones, and the prices are fab. Thanks for sharing xx

  5. I love finding well-priced natural cosmetics for people who can't afford the high prices but want to switch to greener beauty products. Benecos looks like a lovely option. I'll have to try it also. PS LOVE your photos! They show such helpful detail. I have serious photo envy as my iPod Touch, which doesn't take amazing pics to begin with, got trampled somehow. [This sounds like I live in the jungle, but I'm talking about it happening in my bedroom while the kids were romping around ;-)]. What camera do you use? I'm on the market for a decent one now.

  7. I recently bought one of their mascaras, the one that's supposed to lengthen and thicken, and I hate that it smudges. That's my only issue with it really. For the price though, it's not bad. xo

    1. I did get a bit of smudging but not as much as from some of the other green mascaras which are double the price, I still don't like it as much as the NATorigin but the brand is very budget friendly :) Xx

  10. I just ordered a Benecos mascara...not sure offhand if it's that same one or not. The eye liners are really lovely, as is the one lipstick I've tried from them:)
