Cohorted have quite simply changed the beauty box subscription world in my opinion. I’ve been an active subscriber of many beauty boxes over the last year, with many not quite meeting my expectations. My favourite and most affordable is Look Fantastic; a 12 month subscription only costs £11.25 per month, with free delivery!
Although they are affordable, have the prettiest boxes and offer full-sized beauty products, some months you just wish you got a little more luxury and high-end products. But the low price just doesn’t allow that. Cohorted on the other hand give you the opportunity to try full-sized, high-end beauty brands for a fraction of the cost. A monthly subscription of £35 sounds steep in comparison to the likes of Look Fantastic, but oh boy is it worth it!
Personally I wish I had signed up at the beginning of the year when lucky subscribers received full-sized products from an array of amazing brands: Too faced, Bare Minerals, The Balm, Chanel and more! With boxes retailing anything over at least £80, the £35 price tag is worth it! Plus if one or two items don’t appeal to you, they make amazing gifts for beauty lovers at no extra cost. Without further ado, here’s my Cohorted beauty box review of the Cohorted Beauty Box April 2016.
MAC Patent Polish Lip Pencil in Kittenish.
This was the only sneak-peek that Cohorted shared during the build-up to the dispatch date of this month’s box, and I was so excited! When it said ‘lip pencil’ I was expecting the actual pencil type product, but no. Instead this is like the Clinique Chubby Sticks, which is fine! The shade Kittenish is a lovely light pink which is so easy to apply, even with a mirror which is handy for topping up during the day.
MDM Flow Lipstick in Panther.
Now the MAC lipstick received in this month’s box was a lovely pink like I said, but this once is more daring which I really do not like in all honesty! Don’t get me wrong, I love daring lip colours such as dark purples and reds, but this is more of a neon Barbie pink – a colour that does not suit me at all! However, the pro’s to this product is the pigmentation for one. Despite not liking the colour, it’s long lasting and packs a lot of colour in one swatch. As for the packaging, gold and black are a dream come true in a bullet-shaped casing.
Miss Patisserie Bath Melt – Milk & Honey.
Oh my days, these bath melts are so cute. I’m not a bath person, but if I were then this would be want I want every time! It’s a cute – and yes, I will keep calling it cute – cupcake shape which the frosting, cupcake case and glitter! The difference however is the frosting has dried petals at the top which floats in your bath once the bath melt has fully dissolved! This is the Milk & Honey fragrance which is rather sweet, but once dissolved I can imagine it’s a lot more subtle.
GOLD Elements Hand & Nails Care Kit.
This brand is new to me, but I’m looking forward to giving them a try! The box included a Buffing Block, Nail File, Cuticle Oil and Hand & Nail Cream – all full-sized. No samples in this box, which is why I think it’s most definitely worth its £35 price tag!
