I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but I do use basics like eyeliner, mascara, concealer, and lip gloss on most days, and like to play and experiment with makeup looks on special occasions and to enhance my outfits etc.
I have hazel eyes and usually stick to a simple routine of brown eyeliner and mascara, but LoveTrueNatural.com sent me this jungle beige/khaki eyeshadow duo to try, and I loved the color combo. I don’t bother wearing eyeshadow usually, but I’ve been looking for some shadow that compliments my eyes, and dresses them up a notch and gives them depth and definition, without looking unnatural.
Benecos is a German brand that focuses on inexpensive natural cosmetics, and I’ve reviewed their Benecos Natural Eyeliner in Olive. Priced at $12.99, this eyeshadow duo is a great deal, as it will last you a long time!
This is what the natural beauty shop LoveTrueNatural.com has to say about Benecos:

Made in Germany, they offer a wide-assortment of makeup products for face, eyes and lips. Benecos products are made with pure plant and mineral ingredients and certified natural by the BDIH.

Benecos Natural Duo Eyeshadow
The eyeshadow duo has an olive color that is a rich dark olive gray/brown shade with a shimmering finish, and a light beige that is also slightly shimmery. It’s the perfect complement to the olive eyeliner that I reviewed. It really compliments my hazel eyetone without looking like I’m wearing fake green eyeshadow, it’s a very natural shade. I applied the beige all over kind of like a primer, and then the olive in the crease and upper lid, smudging it in softly with my finger. I would recommend it for brown and hazel eyes especially. It’s a fun way to switch up brown eyes with a bit of color that still looks natural and makes your eyes pop. And of course it’s cruelty and paraben free, and certified natural by BDIH, a German certification that verifies natural ingredients and product safety. You can read more about BDIH here.

These eyeshadow duos offer nicely balanced shades, making it easy to create a variety of looks. All natural for sensitive eyes. Vegan. Our mineral eyeshadow duos offer two harmonizing shades, making it easy to create a variety of looks. Go natural with one hue, or bring on the glam by using both. Made with pure mineral pigments for brilliant natural color. Organic jojoba oil offers a light, comfortable feel. Each duo pairs one vivid color with a complementing neutral.
mini cons: I’m not a big eyeshadow fan in general, and I didn’t like that it doesn’t come with an applicator brush or sponge.
