Cohorted Beauty Box: March Box Review

Saturday, March 21, 2015

Cohorted Beauty Box*: £19.99 

Cohorted have been the talk of bloggers since appearing this time last year; they're a website which offers thousands of high end beauty products and deals every day of the week (often at discounted prices!) With the popularity of their products and sales they released their own beauty box- but this is no regular subscription box. Every month a limited amount of boxes are available to buy and once they're gone they're gone, and with such amazing savings to be had you can bet they sell out quick! I was lucky enough to get my hands on March's box to review- containing four gorgeous products with a value of £75 when you pay just £19.99 for the box. Here's what was inside and what I thought of the products.

BareMinerals Pure Transformation Night Treatment (worth £45.00)
This might sound a bit vain but hear me out. Sometimes after I've had a bath in the evening or am just having a no-makeup day around the house, I'll look in the mirror at my bright pink cheeks and think ughh what a mess. It's pointless putting on foundation seeing as I'm not going anywhere, but without it I'm aware that I look awful. Well this stuff is a night treatment that's also like a mineral foundation, it's designed to be good for the skin but you do get a bit of coverage from it as well. Great for days when you don't want to wear makeup and want to let your skin breathe, but want a little bit of coverage too in case someone knocks the door or you have to quickly run out. The benefits of this include increasing cell turnover helping to renew the skin, antioxidant protection and reduced pores and wrinkles both instantly and over time. I really like this and am interested to see what kind of longer term benefits I notice from it. This is a full size treatment worth a whopping £45- it costs over twice the amount that you pay for the box, so you can see what amazing value for money the Cohorted box is.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara (sample size worth £5)

Urban Decay's Perversion eyeliner is one of my Holy Grail, all time favourite products. And so I was more than happy to spot it's counterpart- Perversion mascara in the box. As with their liner this is super black, and as you'd probably expect from an Urban Decay mascara it's just amazing. One coat of this leaves my lashes looking fuller and longer than multiple coats from other brands, it's not clumpy and all in all probably one of the best mascaras I've ever tried. Admittedly I don't tend to use high end mascaras because I don't want to spend £20+ for something that's going to last for three months, however I do like this a lot and will definitely use up this sample. If I was going to buy a high end mascara, after trying this, this is the one I'd go for.

Sleek Precious Metals Highlighter (worth £9.99)


This palette really is stunning, if I hadn't known it was from Sleek I'd have been convinced it was a luxury brand. Rather than their usual black plastic packaging this has been replaced with a cool looking metal case, everything about it looks very high end. There are four cream highlights and a shimmery bronze powder, I'll definitely be using this to achieve a nice glowy makeup look over the summer. It doesn't look overly sparkly or glittery on the face and instead gives a subtle shimmery highlight. The three highlight shades in this are all very light, I don't think it would be a good choice for medium or darker skin tones but is perfect if like me your complexion could give a bottle of milk a run for it's money.

Too Faced Eye Shadow Copper Peony (worth £15.00)
It's been a long time since I've even thought about single eyeshadows as I much prefer the convenience of a palette, but this little shadow from Too Faced is absolutely stunning. It's possibly the smoothest shadow I've ever used, it's so soft and the pigmentation is amazing- plus it's the loveliest bronzey gold shade which is always one of my first choices when it comes to eye makeup. I managed to depot this and put it into my Mac palette (it fits perfectly) and to be honest it puts all of my Mac eyeshadows to shame. At £15 this little shadow almost covers the cost of the box, so again such amazing value for money it's no wonder these Cohorted boxes sell out so quickly!

Have you heard of Cohorted beauty boxes? Will you be getting your hands on Aprils box?

  6. This is incredible! I never really caught on to the beauty boxes because I was scared to end up with so many products I wouldn't use - but now I'm jealous!
