COHORTED BEAUTY BOX | JULY 2016


There's nothing quite as delightful than a delivery filled with surprises, especially when they're high end goodies and you're saving some money in the end! That's what I love about the Cohorted beauty box, amazing value for money, with amazing and exciting high-end beauty goods, all delivered to your front door on a monthly basis! 

I was kindly send their July box to review and spoiler alert I'm SO impressed! I've tried many monthly beauty subscription boxes in my time, from Glossybox to the Look Fantastic beauty box, I've got to say this is the best one I've ever received! The Beauty Box retails at a monthly fee of £35 (including postage) however the actual contents of the box actual retail price is over £100, so you're saving masses of money AND getting the excitement of opening an elegant black ribbon every month and discovering some amazing must-have luxury beauty items!

The delivery was fast and the packaging is simply beautiful! Nothing feels quite as luxurious as opening a matte black box and seeing Nars packaging staring right at you! It truly is an experience to receive something like this! I'm sure you're dying to find out what's inside this months box! 
WHAT'S INSIDE?
BOBBI BROWN CLEANSING OIL 
ORIGIANL PRICE: £32 for 200ml

WHAT'S THE PRODUCTS PURPOSE? 
The cleansing oils purpose is to dissolve and remove make-up, as well as any skin impurities. It does so without leaving the skin feeling tight or dry. The oil is enriched with jasmine flower extract and moisturising kukui nut oil , olive and organic sunflower! 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: 
I've personally never tried a cleansing oil before, I've use cleansing waters and creams but never an oil! The texture is obviously very smooth and you can instantly tell that this oil is going to supply your skin with moisture! The smell however is a lot more pungent than I expected, it's quite a strong floral scent, however that's obviously because it's enriched with so many lovely plant extracts! The oil removed make-up very quickly and effortlessly and left my skin feeling refreshed, however not overly oily! 

BELLA PIERRE LIPSTICK - ENVY
ORIGIANL PRICE: £20

WHAT'S THE PRODUCTS PURPOSE? 
The Bella Pierre mineral lipsticks are a luxurious creamy but pigmented texture, they're formulated with natural waxes and mineral pigments to help achieve their buttery and wearable consistency. Their formula claims to deliver a long lasting and nourishing colour throughout the day as well as providing sun protection! 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: 
I'm usually a girl who's a long time lover of matte lipsticks, purely for their long lasting pigment and finish, however the pigment and creamy texture of this lipstick is brilliant! The colour is definitely a 'me' colour, it's a very beautiful mauve muted pink that I've pretty much been wearing none stop! The lipstick applies really effortlessly and pigmented to the lips, it doesn't apply patchy or stick to any dry areas! 
BELLA PIERRE GEL LIPLINER - CINNAMON 
ORIGIANL PRICE: £20

WHAT'S THE PRODUCTS PURPOSE? 
The gel lip liners are designed to be 100% waterproof and long lasting, to ensure a perfectly pigmented pout and smile through the day! They're formulated with pure minerals and natural waxes to ensure they glide effortlessly onto the lips! The liner can be worn simply to line lips and pair with their mineral lipsticks, or on their own for an all over, long lasting lip colours! 


FIRST IMPRESSIONS: 
This is the products that has impressed me the most within the box, I hadn't personally heard of the brand before receiving the lipstick and lipliner in this box. Firstly, the lipliner is an amazing colour, it's bang on trend at the minute as the world has basically gone made for taupe/brown lips! The lipliner is amazingly pigmented and very soft in texture, however once this is applied it does not budge! Gone are the days of me constantly having to re-apply my lipstick and lipliner, I drank drinks thorough the day, left the swatch on my hand and washed my hands a million times, I even scrubbed my hand with a warm, wet face cloth and this lipliner did not budge a bit, amazing! 

NARS MONOI BODY GLOW OIL
ORIGIANL PRICE: £25

WHAT'S THE PRODUCTS PURPOSE? 
The oil hydrates and moisturises your skin, it calms and prevents the pealing of tanned skin, as it locks in moisture and adds a radiant, natural glow to the skin!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: 
Considering I don't currently have tanned skin, therefore I haven't been able to judge the product on it's promise of preventing skin from pealing! However the sun has no made an appearance, so hopefully I will be able to test the product to its full potential! My first impressions on this product was pure joy when I saw how beautiful it looked aesthetically! I mean, it's got a Taire flower inside, how cute! The smell is really subtle however that's what I love with skin care products, it's a very delicate tropical scent, perfect for summer! 

HD BROWS CREAM SCULPT & HIGHLIGHT PALETTE - MEDIUM
ORIGIANL PRICE: £45 

WHAT'S THE PRODUCTS PURPOSE? 
The palette is a cream contour and highlight palette, it adds depth and definition to your desired contouring areas, as well as highlighting your cheek bones, nose bridge and cupids bow. The creams are simple to apply and blend into the skin!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: 
My first impression was "Wow, that contour cream is DARK!" I got sent the 'medium' toned palette, being quite the pale lady, I immediately thought that this just wasn't going to work for me, however after trying it and blending it with a beauty blender, it actually blends into a shade that's a lot lighter and wearable for me personally! The highlight shade is also very deceiving, it looks remarkably pink, and having a pink skin undertone, my initial thought where once again, is this actually going to work?  However the highlighter is a muted champagne colour and looks amazing! I feel as though I'm going to get a lot of use out of this palette purely because of how beautiful the highlighter cream actually is! 

THE VINTAGE COSMETICS COMPANY BLENDING SPONGE
ORIGIANL PRICE: £5.95

WHAT'S THE PRODUCTS PURPOSE? 
The blending sponge claims to create a flawless and natural finish no matter what cream or liquid based product you use! The sponge can be used with foundations, concealers and cream highlights and blushes, so it's a perfect multi use beauty sponge, the perfect addition to your travel makeup bag! 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: 
Considering I'm a massive lover of the Beauty Blender, I'm always highly sceptical about trying different branded make-up sponges! However I'm actually pleasantly surprised with this sponge. I slightly dampen the sponge so that it grows slightly in size and simply dab my foundation lightly into my skin. Although I don't think the sponge is as amazing as my trusted beauty blender, I think it's a pretty decent dupe, especially considering it's almost half the price of a Beauty Blende! 


OVERALL OPINION 
I think that the Cohorted Beauty Box is absolutely outstanding! Considering the price that you pay into consideration of the actual value of the products, you save a substantial amount of money and receive a collection of truly amazing and versatile products! I love how varied the products are, there's something for everyone! This would make an amazing little monthly 'Treat yo' self' or even if you're feeling like treating someone else with a monthly subscription service, I couldn't recommend the Cohorted Beaty Box enough!

I hope you enjoyed this post and you're as amazed by the Cohorted Beauty Box as I am! 

See you on Friday,
