Cohorted is not just any subscription beauty box, it is a luxury beauty box. Every month it is filled with luxury branded beauty products such as Too Faced, NARS, Chanel and Lancome, and many many more. I had never tried the box before and so when Cohorted got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to try it out, I jumped at the chance and said yes.
It contains a secret selection of hand-picked beauty must haves, enclosed in an elegant all black exterior, and finished with a luxury hand tied bow. Super classy, super chic!
The box itself is incredibly well presented and super chic, with a black box, while lettering and a black ribbon, all so Net A Porter style. Inside it’s filled with black shredded tissue paper, your beauty items and a booklet which is filled with info on the products and also discounts for the site too.
So what was inside this box? There were four full size items and these were:
Bella Pierre Cosmetics Glowing Palette
The Bella Pierre Cosmetics Glowing Palette has six gorgeous illuminator options for all desired looks and skin tones. The Cohorted booklet says:
“Illuminators draw attention to and bring forward any areas of the face where emphasis is desired. This Glowing Palette contains six illuminator options to suit a wide range of skin tones. Formulated with natural ingredients, these illuminator melt seamlessly into the skin and can be layered, whether the goal is natural or dramatic look.”
The set combines six gorgeous flattering shades to suit a wide range of skin tones, all formulated with natural ingredients and mineral pigments that is super kind to the skin. There’s been mixed reviews for this product and to be honest I personally haven’t found any problems with it. It’s not heavely pigmented but it blends well and really compliments my skin. I do use this product every single day and I really do like it.
Bella Pierre Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lip Creme (Antique Pink)
Let’s be honest and thank the Kardashians, whether many of you agree or not, but seriously because of them liquid lipsticks are the liptsticks to really only use (yes Kylie Jenner, I am acknowledging you haha!). The 80’s style liquid lipstick is back on trend and I have to say this one lasts quite a while.
You can imagine I was trying to rub it off with my thumb, sip quite a few moscatio wines (only for testing of course) and I have to say I was quite impressed. The colour is exactly what is on trend (once again due to the Kardashians) – almost nude like but yet has a colour tinge to it. This is one liquid lipstick that really didn’t need hardly any touch up all and lived up to its name.
Kure Bazaar Nail Polish
I will admit I am not a big fan of coloured polished nails. The only time I really colour my nails is when I feel like having black nails (for a high goth glamour rock and roll look) and/or red blood nails (when I’m feeling sexy and super free).
So this colour that was sent to me was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too girly for me (I hate stereo typical girly girly things – you know… PINK! Bah!! Stereotypical sexist!) – I rebel against it to be honest). I will say that this nail polish is pigmented and just way too Barbie like girly for me (flash back to my one Barbie doll that was given to me and I have gave her a crew cut hair style and the lace front wigs and cut her toes off because I seriously wanted her to be different to everyone else… haha!) However, there are many out there that do like this colour and will appreciate it more than I would.
Too Faced – Better Than Sex Mascara
I have heard so much about this mascara and I prayed that it lived up to its expectation. I am ALWAYS on the look out for a mascara that promises to deliver what it really promotes it to be. God knows I have gone through so many mascaras from the drug store to the high end department, designer brand and most mascaras are either annoyingly too thick and clumpy (bah!!) or they leave my lashes looking as thin and spidery as the daddy long legs scaring me in my toilet earlier this morning!
Enter in the Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced and I have to say I am quite impressed. Out of all of the products sent in the beauty box, this one has impressed me the most. It’s made my lashes more visible, it doesn’t require to put on more than two layers to get that right thickness and the best thing is that it doesn’t give me that awful 70’s punk rock clumpy look!! Trust me when I say it actually does work. It was kind of shocking to see my lashes completely fabulous and sexy.
