Cohorted beauty boxes are the shiny black boxes of goodness that have been showcasing some of the biggest brands and in my opinion - how a beauty box should be. I get bored of all these brands telling us you'll get huge high-end brands and you get it once in a year and the rest of the time its just repeated brands. Cohorted have got it spot on and here's the first box and a sneak peak of what August has to offer!
The first product is the Cargo Quad Eyeshadow Pallete. This is a gorgeously decorated palette and inside I have four copper, gold and light shimmery shades! This is right up my street - I love these colours at the moment and think they suit my eye colour perfectly. This palette is totally on trend! I believe there are different compacts to get in different shades. Oddly I couldn't find these to buy online though!
Secondly is the Bare Minerals Skin Rev-er Upper, which sounds amazing and comes in a rather large bottle for a primer. This multi-vitamin complex provides glycolic and salicylic acids and botanical extracts designed to re-energise your complexion. In short, this creates a flawless base for makeup and boosts the skin before moisturiser. It can be worn day and night and doesn't have to be just for makeup - it can be used in the evening as a treatment with moisturiser too. I own their foundation and love it, so will be interested to see if it works well with the primer too!
The additional Bare Minerals product is the Soft Focus Face brush which is a handbag sized powder brush. This is perfect for mineral foundation or setting powders, it soft and as I said, perfectly sized for on the go! The second eyeshadow product is this mini from Laura Gellar and is their Baked ImPRESSions Eyeshadow Duo in Fine Wines. This little duo has a light pink and wine colour to create a simple eye look. These are pressed shadows and are really pigmented. I look forward to trying these colours out.
And lastly, a little body product in the form of Molton Brown Relaxing Yuan Zhi Body Cream which actually smells insane. To me, it smells like the inside of a Lush shop. Normally the smell my boyfriend runs away from but I love it! This is a mini sized but I can definitely see myself using this!
I loved this box, I would have liked to of got maybe a full-size eyeshadow palette similar to their other boxes but these are still great shades and no funny colours that wouldn't have been any use. I think Cohorted have this just right and for £19.99 these are amazing. Some of their other boxes have looked incredible with names such as Urban Decay, Too Faced and Sleek. You can pre-order September's box on the 15th! Find out more here. [LINK]
