This is January’s Cohorted Beauty Box (black edition) & is actually the first one I have received so am excited to share with you it’s offerings. Cohorted is an online beauty shopping destination that focuses on selling a mixture of different brands that are affordable and luxury ; words that aren’t often put together in the same sentence! They are very focused on their customer’s experience and are very active on all the social media’s to create great bonds and interactions with existing customers and beauty lovers. The are also very well-known for their Black Beauty Box’s which include well-known, cult brands to your doorstep every month. What I love is that there are no silly-one-use sizes of products…all are full-size!
I am a huge Too Faced makeup fan so was pleased to see a couple of bits from the brand ; the Soul Mates Blush Bronzer is a jumbo heart-sized compact which contains both your bronzer and blusher in complimentary shades. This one is ‘Carrie & Big’ (!!) which is a soft, shimmering bronze and the blusher is a fresh and pretty coral. Also from Too Faced is the Lip Injection Color Bomb which is a satin finish lipstick with an injection of lip plumper for ultimate glossy, full & pouty lips. It has a lovely moisturising texture and finish, a bit of an ooomphed up tinted lip balm. The shade is Eastwood Red which is a bright poppy red. I actually have a couple of these already, not this shade fortunately which is a bonus.
For tired eyes there is the Lancome Le Corrector Pro (Shade 03 Bisque) This is an eye correcting palette that contains 1 x concealer, 1 x corrector & 1 x translucent powder to set your products. A handy little kit for anyone who gets the dreaded dark circles and needs more than just a concealer to brighten. Also comes with a handy ‘how-to’ if you aren’t a pro at correcting dark circles. I am going to do a full review this soon as it’s really effective.
Also in this month’s box of goodies is the Cargo Lip Gloss Quad ‘South Beach’. This is your J-LO lips!…All the gorgeous bare lip nudes and golden tones that will look great on pretty much anyone (South Beach tan is optional). This is a back-basics type metal tin packaging and you simply dab the not-so-sticky gloss on with fingertips for quick application.
One only (teeny) gripe with this month’s box would be the fact that it contains x2 items from the same brand…not really a problem for me as I LOVE TooFaced as a brand but I think it’s good to have 1 item per brand so you can get to discover more maybe. Just a thought.
The Cohorted Beauty box is designed to be a little more luxe and high end than a few of the other, which explains the price point of £35. However, the brands inside reflect this and actually this box is worth just under £100, so a great saving. Cohorted boxes always have a retail value of at least £70 per box too so you will always get at least 50% off the retail price. The website is really good and informative and it’s really easy to subscribe/unsubscribe etc. It also gives you a sneaky peek at one of the brands they will be including in your next month’s box…which I really like.
