COHORTED JULY BEAUTY BOX REVIEW


Last month I tried the Cohorted beauty box for the first time and fell in love with it (review here), so it shouldn't be a surprise that I wanted to get another taste of it this month. I have been testing the products for the past few days and although I can't give you an in-depth review of them, I will certainly tell you my first impressions. 






As a lip product addict, this killer combo caught my eye straight away. The shades couldn't have been more perfect as they're very 90's /grunge. The lipliner and the lipstick are both from Bella Pierre Cosmetics and they both retail for £20. The lipstick, in the shade Envy, is very creamy and slides on easily. The colour is a gorgeous brick-mauve that I am more than comfortable wearing as it compliments my skintone. The lipliner in the shade Cinnamon, is matte and VERY long lasting. When I wore it on a day out two days ago, it survived through my greasy lunch break so I give it 5 stars straight away. The colour is darker than the lipstick and more brown. 



This month HD Brows made another appearance but this time featuring their Sculpt and Glow palette.  I got mine in the shade Dark which is perfect as with summer I tend to get a natural tan. I initially thought that this was going to be another brow product but actually it's a proper cream contour kit where you use the darker shade to add depth and the lighter one to add highlight. I blend both with a stippling brush and so far I have no complaints. 


 Now, I'm still a newbie when it comes to Bobbi Brown products but this Soothing Cleansing Gel is a gem! Apparently it's made with jasmine flower extract, kukui nut oil, Italian olive oil, organic sunflower and jojoba oils. All the goodness! It melts your makeup off nicely and I find very easy to wash off afterwards. The sample I got was in the smaller size so I'll save it for when I'll be travelling. 



I've pretty much ditched my foundation/buffing brush and now I only use the sponge. I'm currently a loyal fan of the Real Techniques one however this pink beauty from The Vintage Cosmetic Company is next! I can't wait to use it, as it's affordable (only £5.95), and it reminds me of the Beauty Blender shape-wise. I only wish sponges weren't so much of a pain to clean! 





Last but not least is the striking little glass bottle containing the Monoi Body Glow by Nars which retains a tire flower. It calms and prevents the peeling of tanned skin and it also contains medicinal and beautifying benefits. I just use it as a body oil to add some glow when I want to treat myself as a queen. Priced at £25, it's definitely a product that you want to use on special days as it's so good you're gonna want to bathe yourself in it! 


BOX VALUE =£125.95! Impressive. 

What are your thoughts on the contents of this month's box? Let me know if any product has caught you eye and if you wish me to review it separately once I tested it more. 
XOXO
