Benecos It-Pieces Palette


This is the first time we've seen a personalised option like this from an all-natural brand – the make-up equivalent of Build-A-Bear, basically, letting you mix and match textures and shades so you get exactly the combo you want. Maybe that's compact powder, blusher highlighter. Maybe it's bronzer and eyeshadows. It's your call. You buy the compact separately (£5.65) and then build it to your requirements. 

Basically you can go for pretty much any combo that will fit the palette – choosing from the options above, which include Eyeshadows, Bronzer, Blusher, Highlighter, Compact Powder... There are different shades available for most of the items, except Ash Contour – and aside from the somewhat bold blue and emerald shades (we'd personally give those a wide berth in favour of the more neutral tones), these are all flatteringly wearable.

Being Benecos, everything is certified natural by COSMOS organic, and it goes without saying that it's free from parabens, paraffins, synthetic colours, PEGs, artifical fragrances or chemical preservatives – and of course, cruelty-free.

If there's too much decision-making involved, you might want to know that there are two ready-made (but refillable) palettes on offer – see below – one for cool-toned complexions (Pretty Cold) and one for warmer tones (Freaking Hot).
