A New Favourite: Benecos Natural Highlighting Powder! :)

You may know that I love a good highlighter. I mean I REALLY love me some highlighter, managed to use up a MAC MSF even. I use highlighter pretty much everyday. In fact I feel naked without applying highlighter. I've been loving my Soft and Gentle for a long time, but now it has been completely replaced by this new beauty form Benecos. It's their Natural Highlighting Powder in Stardust. For those who are not familiar with Benecos, they are a German certified natural cosmetics brand. I really like their products because they are very affordable. Unfortunately I'm not sure if their products are available outside Europe.




I've used this highlighter non-stop ever since I got it. As you can see there's already a small dent in the pan, and I've had it only a couple of months. I'm sure we can see some pan by the end of this year :)



This is the perfect product for a heavy handed girl like me. The finish is very subtle so you really can't go overboard with this one! It gives a very natural glow without being shimmery at all, at least I don't see any shimmers on my face. You can see some tiny shimmers in the pan but they don't transfer on to my face. The color is a light shampagne color and I'm sure it looks beautiful and flattering on many skin tones. Compared to Soft and Gentle, this one is much less shimmery and more creamier and smoother somehow. The consistency is just so silky and lovely.




To me the best part is the scent. It smells heavenly coconut! It's not overpowering by any means but you can definitely smell it in the pan. Not at all when it's on your skin, which is a good thing.

I can't recommend this enough. It's great if you are just starting to highlight and contour, you can't go wrong with this one. Nice and subtle for everyday use. It's around 10€ here in Finland, you can't beat that. I highly recommend!

And here's the reason why I was able to take nice pictures today, it was not completely pitch dark in the morning because of the...snow! Have a nice day everyone! :)


Thanks for reading!

  1. Tuote kuulosti aivan loistavalta siihen saakka, kun kerroit sen tuoksuvan kookokselta. :D En ole suuri sen tuoksun ystävä, mutta kaipa minun silti täytyy käydä tsekkaamassa tämä, sillä se tosiaan näyttää lupaavalta. Ja jos se tuoksu ei tosiaan säily iholla. Minulla on tapana hamstrata poskipunien ohella korostustuotteita, mutta muistan harmillisen harvoin käyttää niitä. Olo on kyllä aina astetta pirteämpi, kun muistaa niitä käyttää :)

    1. Kannattaa käydä hiplaamassa tätä ja ehkä vähän nuuhkimassa ;) tuoksu ei ole kyllä mitenkään voimakas! Eikä tosiaan kasvoilla huomaa lainkaan. Minä olen tottunut käyttämään korostusta jo niin hyvin ettei enää voi olla ilman..! Sitä kyllä näyttää eloisammalta jotenkin :)

  2. Näin Benecos-ständin Lifessä. En tullut ostaneeksi mitään mutta tän perusteella kyllä kokeilen ainakin tätä, kiitos postauksesta :) Rasvaiselle iholle on todella vaikea löytää hyviä korostustuotteita, ellei halua maksaa itseään kipeäksi (mulla kierroksessa Hourglass).
