Cruelty Free Makeup – Benecos

Although I’m not 100% cruelty free (I love Mac Strobe Cream so much!) I try my best to find cruelty free alternatives for products so I was delighted to review these goodies from Benecos! They kindly sent me three products to try out and I’m loving them! Benecos products are natural, vegan, cruelty free and very affordable! They have both a makeup and a skincare line.

Natural Blush – Mallow Rose* £5.95 (currently £4.76)


This is a gorgeous blush shade for fair skin, it’s not insanely pigmented but has enough colour pay off to give the cheeks a nice, natural flush which is exactly what I like! It’s very soft and easily blendable. It’s a perfect, every day blush shade. The colour lasts throughout most of the day and fades naturally. It can be easily topped up without looking cakey. This blush is so affordable and you get a lot of product for your money! Benecos also do two other shades for darker skin tones so if this shade doesn’t look like it would suit, I’d advise checking out the other two!

Natural Eyeshadow – Rose Quartz* £4.95 (currently £3.96)


From top to bottom – Rose Lipgloss, Mallow Rose Blush, Rose Quartz Shadow

I absolutely love this eyeshadow! It’s a gorgeous rose/champagne shade with a glittery shimmer. I wish the swatch would do justice to how beautiful this is on. Like the blush, this shadow is soft and blendable. I’ve been dusting this on for everyday wear and it gives the eyes a beautiful lift. The sparkle is subtle enough to not look OTT for during the day. I’m really looking forward to trying out a few other shades including some matte ones from the collection.

Natural Lipgloss – Rose* £6.95


Although I’m not a major lipgloss person, I’ve really liked wearing this. It isn’t a sticky lipgloss and it contains sunflower oil which nourishes and moisturises the lips. (A big plus for me as my lips are always dry!) It’s not as pink on the lips as it looks in the tube, it gives a subtle shimmery pink tint to the lips that looks very natural. I’ve also been applying this over the top of some of my matte shades of lipstick to give them a lift and it works really well!

All of these makeup goodies are perfect shades for my ghostly skin so I’m very impressed! I can’t wait to try out more from Benecos, the quality is great for such an affordable price!

Make sure you’re following Benecos on their twitter and Instagram their handle is @BenecosUK on all social media and check out the Benecos website. They’ve currently got 20% off their makeup products for the month of April so now’s the time to treat yourself! Have you tried anything from Benecos before?

    Never heard of them before. I like the look of that eyeshadow, although it would be great if it were a little more pigmented. I highly recommend you have a look at MUA, they’re so affordable and really good value for money.

    I have never heard of the brand but the products look beautiful! It’s even better that the makeup is cruelty free – lovely post xo

  8. April 17, 2017 / 5:07 pm

    I do t think we have this brand in the US, but now I wish we did! Non-sticky AND cruelty free lipgloss?!? That’s practically the Holy Grail of makeup!


  9. April 17, 2017 / 5:08 pm

    I’m trying so hard to convert to cruelty free so I’ll be checking this brand out. Such great prices and I love these spring pink colours – totally my type of look!

    Haven’t heard of these before but they look really good. Fab photos too, so clear and colourful! 😊

  11. April 17, 2017 / 5:12 pm

    I have to be honest, I’m not exactly cruelty free! I do try to be where I can, but there are certain high-end items I love just a little too much! But I’m very intrigued by the blush! I have quite fair skin, so finding a blush that doesn’t make me look like a clown is a godsend! And with 20% off…

    I haven’t heard of this brand before, but their products look great. I love the detailing on their blusher, and natural eyeshadow’s are my go-to style, so this is definitely a makeup brand for me. Great review! 🙂

    These look so gorgeous and seem to be great brands! Nice to know that there are more cruelty free and affordable brands than we think out there 😀


  25. April 18, 2017 / 7:11 pm

    I am OBSESSED with your makeup brush in the pictures, I need that in my life! So pretty! Never heard of these products before, will have to give them a go! Thanks for sharing

  26. April 18, 2017 / 7:24 pm

    I have been searching for some more cruelty-free brands and some more blush products! I actually like the fact that they are a little more on the sheer side with their blush because I do not like a harsh blush. I am more of a natural girl so I think it would be perfect for me 🙂
    Thanks for the review♥

  30. April 18, 2017 / 7:42 pm

    This post is definitely making me want to look into purchasing some Benecos products, I especially love the look of rose quartz eyeshadow! In general I’d like to go cruelty free with my makeup and be more conscious of what brands I buy from and this seems like the perfect start x

  31. April 18, 2017 / 7:49 pm

    I’ve never heard of this brand before but will definitely be checking them out.
    The rose quartz eye shadow is really pretty!

    All those colours are gorgeous! I find it so hard to find lipsticks that suit me! Stupid ginger hair and pale skin!

  44. April 19, 2017 / 9:31 pm

    I’m trying to change to all/mostly cruelty-free and I was sent some Benecos products too and I love them! The Mallow Rose blush in particular, I agree it’s perfect for pale skin. I really like the look of that Rose Quartz eyeshadow too, I may have to pick that up soon x

  45. April 19, 2017 / 10:19 pm

    I love finding more cruelty free options! Like you stated, I am not cruelty free entirely, but I will say that if I have the option between a cruelty free option I am familiar with and one I know isn’t, I will pick the cruelty free option for sure!

    Great article! I love the colours, soft and natural 💕

  47. May 15, 2017 / 10:54 am

    I’ve never 100% thought about cruelty free until quite recently and it’s something that’s becoming more and more important to me. I think it used to be so difficult to find products but I was very surprised to find a list of like 100 brands that were completely cruelty free which is great! Xxx

  48. June 8, 2017 / 6:06 am

    I’m gonna say what everyone has said, I’ve never heard of this brand before. Thank you for introducing me to this brand. I like to know less known cruelty free brands so I can give advice to people on supporting less mainstream brands. The swatches also look super gorgeous.

  49. June 22, 2017 / 10:37 pm

    Those make-up brushes are so pretty! And the blush looks so lovely.

    I’m obsessed with the benecos brow pencils but I definitely need to try out more from their range.
