How is it nearly the end of April? This year is flying by so quickly and we're in full spring mode. I started ditching black (just a little) and wearing lighter colours. I'm also keen to try new products and brands, and once again this month's Cohorted box brought an amazing selection to all us Cohortee's! The value of April's edition is £102 and I've got to say, I have been using pretty much all the products I have found in it. Time to share with you my thoughts on them!
Laura Geller Spackle Tinted Under Makeup Primer is an award-winning primer that I have been wanting to try for a while as a couple of my friends actually raved to me about it. I was super excited to test it and I do see why they liked it so much. Your makeup looks fresh from the first hour until pretty much the end of the day as the base is strong and keeps the products in place! I'm a strong believer in the power of a good primer, it can really make or break your whole look. It's worth noting that it adds a gorgeous glow so if you're more of a matte fan then this might not be the best match for you but it makes your complexion flawless and it feels very lightweight, all positive points in my book.
Another Laura Geller product was this Creme Glaze Trio in the shade Golden Sunset. I love how dainty and travel-friendly it is, as I can totally use it on holiday. This small palette features a new hybrid powder with creme texture that glides on to create a striking, foil-like effect. It is perfect if you're going for the all-round-glow and when applied with a wet brush it really makes your eyes stands out so it could be used for special occasions as well as every day use when applied with a dry brush. I'm happy with the way the colours blended and applied on the lid and as a bonus, they contain vitamin E to keep your lids soft.
I can't lie, but this was probably the product that got me excited the most as I was on a hunt for some eye masks! These are from Elemis and they're hands down the best eye masks I have tried so far - and I tested a wide range as I like to use them on Sundays after a heavy night out. They de-puff the area but also brighten it up, making you look considerably more fresh and like you've had a solid 8-hour sleep. Definitely need to have these in my beauty routine from now on.
A perfume for hair that also acts as a glossy finish? Trust me when I say that the Eau My Goodness Shine and Fragrance spray by Percy & Reed is one you need for the hotter months. It smells of fresh morning breeze and roses, it's so attractive and I always got complimented when I happened to wear it. I tend to spray it as a finishing step whenever I straighten my hair and I want a Kim-K sleek effect, as it locks in moisture and doesn't add any sort of crispiness, making my hair feel extra hydrated.
Finally, not that I needed any more lipsticks in my stash, I was super stoked to receive the Laura Mercier Creme Smooth lipstick in the shade Antique Pink which is right up my street. It's actually a fabulous product and it shoots straight on my top 5 in terms of quality, longevity and overall feel when applied.
It promises flawless colour, a smooth texture and a lightweight finish that lasts. They contain pure olive oil and vitamin E to nourish and moisturise the lips, plus hyaluronic filling spheres to plump fine lines and repair delicate skin. Finally, Rose Seed extract works to improve elasticity. I have rather dry lips at the moment and I found this lipstick super easy to wear as you can't even feel it!
I loved April's edition and I can't wait to use all these products in the upcoming months! Have you found any new gems recetly?
