Beauty: The Ultimate Beauty Box - Cohorted December Edition Review
There's a been a bit of a buzz on social media about this months Cohorted beauty box. I'd describe this beauty box as quite a luxury one. It's something you can pay for one off (as a treat to yourself) and you'll know you'll never be left disappointed about. While I was working on my dissertation last week in the library I had a missed parcel slip to pick up and after the 2 mile walk to the post office yesterday morning I was beyond excited when it turned out to be this months Cohorted beauty box. I actually rushed around this morning to take blog photos for this post (as it was a little bit lighter but still not 100%). I've read a couple of reviews online already and this months box is in collaboration with fellow beauty blogger Michelle from Thou Shalt Not Covet.
One thing I really like about the Cohorted beauty box is the contents really do range but within the range I always find quite a luxury make-up brand I've never tried before. In the last box I received (check out the post here) I discovered cosmetics brand 'Thebalm' and I have to say I'm now obsessed with them! So lets get onto this months box...
Too Faced Soul Mates Blushing Bronzer in Ross and Rachel - £28 (available here)
First up this months box includes possibly the best named make-up product ever. How did I not know that there's a make-up product named after Ross and Rachel from Friends? They are my ultimate favourite TV couple. I've heard a lot about Too Faced products (especially their chocolate bar palettes) but I've never tried anything from them. First of all the packaging for this is insane. I love how it's come as a compact which means it's perfect for applying make-up on the go.
Thanks to the last Cohorted beauty box I received I tried NARS for the first time. I've heard so many beauty bloggers/youtubers rave about the velvet matte lip pencils and boy did they not disappoint. My lip pencil Walkryie is a handbag staple of mine. First impressions of this product is it's more of a summery lip product as it has SPF 15 protection. You can obviously still use this in the winter though as who doesn't need a lip balm in winter to keep your lips moisturised?!
Seeing another NARS product in this months box was a huge shock. Literally how amazing is this months box?! I've heard big things about MAC make-up brushes (which I still haven't tried yet) and NARS brushes and so I have a feeling this will soon become a staple in my make-up routine. I think this brush will be great for applying concealer under the eyes but also for targeting blemishes. It's quite a dense brush but it seems to blend the concealer quite well (well it works for me anyway!)
I've never ever received a MAC product in a beauty box so as you can see I was super excited about seeing this in this months box. I am a massive fan of MAC Lipsticks and I've never been disappointed by them. I don't actually own Rebel but I'm really excited to give this shade a try, especially as it's such a wintery colour.
This is possibly my favourite perfume of all time (aside from Marc Jacobs Daisy) and I've never been disappointed from a Marc Jacobs perfume. I'd say this is definitely more of a summery perfume but Daisy is a great perfume if you're looking for an all year round scent. Dot is a very fruity and light scent which reminds me of summer! I'd definitely recommend this if you're looking to update your perfume collection.
What do you think of this months Cohorted box? I think this is a great purchase if you're fancying treating yourself and there's already been a sneak preview to January's box which you can order (and check out the preview of it) here.
