The Review: Benecos Cosmetics at Natures Health Box


I've been ordering from Natures Health Box for a while now (I picked up my Weleda Skin Food from them) and the service is great, it usually only takes a few days to arrive and they often have deals and promos on a variety of natural health food, cosmetics, skincare and baby stuff! So I was so thrilled when they asked if I wanted to review for them (erm yeah!) I got a choice of 3 items from the store and as I'm trying to clean up my makeup bag by opting for more non toxic products I sampled the Benecos Cosmetics line. The brand where established in 2008 in Germany and is a naturally derived line that is a reasonable price. however it does not have foundation shades for darker skin tones which I'm finding to be the case for so many natural lines! So I picked up Benecos Natural Lipstick in Just Red, Natural Maximum Volume Mascara and Natural Liquid Eyeliner. these are pretty much the only makeup items I use (and foundation)


Benecos Natural Lipstick in Just Red (£6.89) is looked as though it was going to be really vibrant but it was quite sheer considering it wasn't very red at all, though I was impressed with the texture and feel I definitely need lip liner for this as it was more of a lip gloss than a lipstick.

Benecos Natural Mascara Maximum Volume Deep Black (£6.89) was very nice to use, no clumps and a good strong black colour, it's great if you have sensitive eyes. and again the ingredients are impressive, As good as any mascara I have tried.

Benecos Natural Liquid Eyeliner Black (£5.89) this is the best of the three! I love this liquid eyeliner, I have been a devotee of Rimmel London's Glam Eyes for years due to the colour payoff and the brush. I usually can not stand nubs when it comes to eye liner (I can never get a good swooooosh) However this eyeliner has a nub but it has a flat edge on one side which allows for better control and spread of colour. I created a cat eye and it was super eye, quick and neat!

So overall, I'm relitivly impressed with Benecos as a brand, the Eyeliner is a must! the Mascara is good the lipstick isn't great on it's own for me. But the ingredients are really good and the prices even better they start at £3.89 which is very resonable! plus delivery at Natures Health Box is great standard is £2.99 (UK) and should arrive within 2-4 days mine have always come earlier rather than later. Orders over £50 delivery is free and with the variety of products on offer you'll easily spend that! 



With Lip liner underneath (over whole lip) SO much better!!
