I have always loved using natural products, but I have to say, you have got to find the right brands for a quality product. Yes, I’m overjoyed that this or that makeup is natural, but is it long wearing, good coverage, looks natural, and won’t drip off my face if I happen to sweat?
So I’m on a mission to find some good quality products. I’m determined to slowly replace all my makeup with natural versions as I run out of product.
Not too long ago, I was perusing one of our local health food stores and I noticed that they had a new brand of makeup in. Fascinated, I grabbed a pamphlet and left the store. Once home, I looked the company up online and was super interested. I contacted them and they were more than happy to spread the word about their company and sent me a Benecos Maxium Volume Mascara to try out! Not only that, they’re going to send one of you a tube of their mascara too!
I was super excited to try it and took photos of the before and after.
Please, please realize that this is in the morning and after a horrible, short night’s sleep. When I’m really tired my one eyelid droops. It’s kind of funky quirk of mine. Feel special you know about it.
I came to the conclusion I love this mascara! Like most mascaras, you can build on it by letting it dry in between coats. However, in the photos, it’s just one coat (nice, right?). For a more dramatic effect, don’t forget to curl your eyelashes beforehand! I love the deep black colour and the glossy look it gave my lashes. After it was dry, it didn’t flake like I’ve noticed some mascaras do. Additionally, although it wasn’t waterproof, it acted like it was. That’s a bonus for me. You know, just in case something moves me emotionally at some random moment.
There was only one thing I didn’t like about it…if you get any of the product in your eye it stings. Most of you don’t have a problem with this…I’m just a klutz. Minor problem. I’m really excited about trying more of their products in my quest to clean up my makeup bag! You need to check out Love True Naturals site and see all the amazing stuff they have!
