Benecos, Ice Ice, Baby! Nail Polish review

Hello,
I have bought this nail polish from Benecos because lately I have been trying to replace my traditional, full of toxins nail polishes with more healthy options.

The problem is that traditional nail polishes make my nails yellow and are very drying(:. 
I have been experimenting with different nail polish brands but I am going to write a more complex review laterAt the moment I am testing the Benecos brand. 
Benecos nail polish in Ice Ice Baby has a baby blue colour. The colour is totally mat. The application is not the easiest one, mainly because the polish is really thick and the brush is rather small.

Also it may streak when you apply it and it may chip already two days after the application. Is it worth buying then? I think so because it does not contain toluene, camphor, phthalates, formaldehydes , colophony and when you apply it you will notice that it doesn't have strong odour either. It will not dry your nails and it should not make your nails yellow. If you are not too demanding and prefer less toxic nail polishes go for it!

Benecos Natural Highlighting Powder in Stardust

Hello,Benecos Natural Highlighting Powder in Stardust is a nice product which you can use in many ways.

You can use it on your whole face or on the parts which you want to highlight, like cheekbones, brow bone, cupids bow, etc. If you want to give your eyes an instant lift apply it under your brows. This is what I do, especially when I have to get up at 5.30 am and I almost look like a zombie. Sometimes I  use it on the whole face because I am a girl who likes to shine:). But being serious it gives me a brighter complexion

The powder has natural light reflecting pigments which in my opinion aren't too obvious and you have to take a closer look to notice them.

However, when I apply the powder on my hand the shimmer is much more visible.

The Benecos highlighting powder gives you a nice subtle shimmer which looks classy (and who would like to look like a Christmas tree anyway), brightens your complexion and is natural

Benecos Natural Trio Blush, Fall in love blusher, instant glow, radiant complexion

Hello,

From manufacturer's site: "The name benecos stands for good cosmetics - latin - "bene" = good. benecos natural beauty. These stylish natural beauty products are BDIH certified with the focus on organic ingredients, and many of the natural beauty products being vegan, also designed and manufactured without animal testing.
None of the benecos natural beauty products contain any of the following ingredients: paraffin, parabens,silicones,PEG,synthetic colour,synthetic fragrance,synthetic preservatives".

Now I will describe for you the product:
Benecos Natural Trio Blush, Fall in love blusher consists of three perfectly matched shades: brighter pink, champagne pink and deeper pink which looks very dark but in fact is very little pigmented and not too visible. Natural brighter pink gives the skin a healthy glow, champagne pink is perfect for highlighting and deeper pink  can be used for contouring.  Colours have cool undertone and will suit  a summer woman type.

How to use it:

just mix three shades together and your complexion will look instantly fresher and more radiant. It will give you healthy and natural glow. It also will look very natural, you can achieve no makeup look. You can also use champagne pink under your eyebrows (it will give you an instant lift) and/or the darkest shade for contouring your face.



Consistency:
It is very silky, easy to blend and easy to apply. I think it would be difficult to achieve a "clown" look:).
Colours are sheer but I have applied a lot of product on my fingers




Ingredients (INCI): Talc, Mica, kaolin, Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride, Macadamia Seed Oil Ternifolia *, Ricinus Communis (Cator) Seed Oil *, Magnesium Stearate, Glyceryl caprylate, P Anisic Acid *, Tocopherol *, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower ) Seed Oil *, [+ / - (May Contain) Ci 77891, Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499, Ci 77742, Ci 75470, Ci 77007, Tin Oxide]'
