Hey guys! I come to you today with another post about my favorite make-up cosmetics, this time it will be for the Benecos Quattro coffee & cream eyeshadow palette and the eyeshadow base.
It is a perfect duo. I use these delicate colors to make my recently favorite everyday eye makeup. It is true that Benecos also offers single shadows as well as smokey eye and violet palettes, but I decided to use nude, ordinary and everyday colors, and therefore very universal. It was a good choice.
Most importantly, they are natural eye shadows, they do not contain any harmful and potentially allergenic substances. In addition, the palette is small and practical, good for trips, and the shadows are of great quality. If you want to see how it worked for me and see the color swatch, I invite you to the rest of the review.

I have to admit that since I have this little Benecos palette I use it almost every day. Contains beautiful, coffee and vanilla colors. The rusty color and coffee with milk are pearly, coffee and milk are dull. It may be a simple and very basic set, but for me it is just right for gently highlighting brown eyes.
The shadows do not flake off, each one is slightly creamy, they apply nicely and stay on the eyelid for quite a long time. In addition, the eyeshadows are efficient, have a natural composition and good pigmentation. Not the kind we can see in make-up tutorials from Youtube or Instagram, of course, but once that such shadow palettes are not healthy for our eyes, two – I do not prefer such strong eye makeup every day. However, for special occasions I have a set of mineral pigments, which, well, cannot be more pigmented.
These shades are universal, everyday and very easy to wear. You can quickly create very nice eye makeup using these 4 colors. It is enough to make a base with a light shadow all over the eyelid, pearl shade in the corner and rub light brown at the crease of the eyelid. Ready! Without thinking, simple and effective.
These shadows are also universal, they are enough for day and evening make-up – just add more of the darkest, brown shade, a line, a darker shade of lipstick and each delicate make-up will immediately take on elegant expressiveness.
You can paint them both dry and wet with them beautifully.
For this one more advantage – such a Benecos palette is inexpensive, natural, small and practical, it will also work great on any holiday trips, and if necessary, it can also be used as a bronzer, carefully and thoroughly rubbed.
Benecos, a cream base for eye shadows
A natural eye shadow base from Benecos will make your makeup even easier and more durable. Creamy base, ergonomic applicator that allows you to easily and precisely apply the article to the eyelids. The base strengthens the vigor of shades, improves the adhesion and resistance of make-up and prevents the shadows from rolling in the eyelid creases. The shadows applied to the base gain a deeper color and do not flake off. The base works perfectly with Benecos natural eye shadows.
The article was produced on the basis of a friendly, natural recipe devoid of toxic components. This is extremely important in makeup and sensitive eye care products. The product has been enriched with natural ingredients with a caring effect – sage hydrolate, sweet almond and sunflower seed oil and soothing chamomile extract.
The base should be applied to the eyelids with the attached applicator. After applying, wait a dozen or so seconds and start applying the shadows. The base works best with natural eye shadows from the Benecos manufacturer.

The base surprised me. I liked the fact that it has an applicator and it is a cosmetic with a great composition, it is very important for eye makeup. However, I expected a typical, creamy texture and the same typical color.
The Benecos base, on the other hand, is golden yellowish and at first glance it may be a bit disturbing. In my case, however, it helps to even out the color of the eyelid. It also does not affect the final eye makeup – it does not make the shadows have a warmer shade. In addition, it fantastically enhances the color and extends their durability, although I have oily eyelids. Worth testing!

I am satisfied with these cosmetics and I will definitely try other colors of palettes and individual eye shadows from Benecos. As for the base, it’s not my ideal. I will test new ones, but I will definitely use it until the end, because it is a natural and good quality cosmetic. Perhaps it will work better for you. If so, be sure to let me know.
