As ever it doesnt seem like a week has passed since the last box arrived, and now June’s Cohorted box has just landed on my doormat! Let’s take a look what’s included in this months box –
- HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette in Foxy, worth £25.00.
- NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, in Sierra, worth £20.00.
- James Read Instant Bronzing Spray, worth £25.00.
- Lord & Berry Supreme Iridescent Eyeliner, in Smart Blue, worth £12.00.
Total value of box = £82.00.
Ok, so this box probably isn’t the most exciting I’ve seen from Cohorted (it would have been nice to receive five products rather than four) never the less at £82.00 it is a high value box, and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and trying everything out…
I’m a big fan of NARS lip products, especially their Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, so I was really happy to find one in this months box! The shade Sierra is not really my colour though unfortunately – it’s kind of a burnt sienna / orange shade, which I think would look amazing on darker skin tones, but it doesn’t really do much for my pasty complexion! The booklet does say ‘mixed’ for the shade though, so it looks as though there will be a variety of shades on offer. I should also point out that though I’m not keen on this particular colour, I definitely think NARS’ Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are one of the best matte lipsticks you can buy.
The Lord & Berry Supreme Iridescent Eyeliner also caught my eye – you know how I love a blue eyeliner! Shade Smart Blue is a deep midnight blue with a metallic matte finish. It applies nicely and the formula is smooth and soft, but not too soft – I’m really happy this was in the box!
The HD Brows Palette also looks pretty good – this palette contains a highlighter, three brow shades (all matte pressed powder) and a clear wax for setting the brows, as well as a double ended brush. It’s also great that the shadows are dual purpose, so you can use them both as eyeshadow and for your brows.
And lastly the James Read Instant Bronzing Spray – I must admit I’m usually quite wary when it comes to fake tan as I’m pretty pale. The James Read Instant Bronzing Spray promises to deliver an all over golden tan with ease. I’ll be trying this out over the next few days so keep an eye on my snapchat (smiletrade) to see how I get on!
I’d love to hear if you picked up this box and what you thought of it?
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
