The Cohorted Beauty Box

Beauty subscription boxes are something I'm still getting my head around. I like to spend my hard earned money on products that I really want to try, so when a beauty subscription box doesn't tick all the boxes I always feel a little disheartened. Yet again, when a box arrives and it's full of amazing products and is amazing value for money, they're become a must have for any beauty lover.


I recently spoke about the Latest in Beauty Harpers Bazaar box, this is a one off subscription box with no monthly commitment -unlike a subscription box I knew the contents before I purchased it. Cohorted recently got intouch to see if I wanted to try out their monthly subscription box, it retails at £35 a month which for me is steep and for that price it would need to contain a lot of good stuff. This is what's in this months box...
From seeing what was in the previous boxes I was really excited to be getting my hands on this, a lot of them included brands such as Living Proof, Nars and James Reed. The box I received contained 4 items, a BellaPierre highlighting palette, liquid lipstick, a mini Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and a nail polish from a brand called Kure Bazaar. When looking at the RRP, it would appear that you get a really good deal seen as though the palette costs £40 alone. 

Being completely honest, the brand BellaPierre didn't really excite me. I hadn't heard of it and wasn't really expecting much from the Glowing Palette. However, I gave it a good go and I actually really like a lot of the shades included, they are highly pigmented and feel soft on the skin, plus they've definitely had me experimenting with different kinds of highlighter.
The liquid lipstick is a shade I really like, so again although not mad on liquid lipsticks I tried it and I'm pleasantly surprised. Unlike other liquid lipsticks it doesn't feel too dry and it doesn't show up too many cracks/ imperfections in my lips. I haven't reached for this as much as the highlighting palette, but it's nice to know I have a liquid lipstick in my collection that I actually like.
The mini Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara was definitely what excited me most when I opened the box, and it's safe to say for me it really does live up to the hype. I don't usually invest in highend mascaras just because the high street offers so many good ones, so receiving the mini fab as I can try it before I consider investing. This mascara offers both length and volume and a curl to the lashes that lasts all day.

One thing that lets this box down for me was the nail polish, why does every subscription box include a flippin' nail polish? I have 3 colours that I'll put on my nails and that's about it so this will be donated to a friend/ family member I think.

All in all, although I wasn't too impressed at first I'm actually starting to warm to the idea of a beauty box. The products in this box are such good quality and value for money, so if you do have a spare £35 a month and like luxury beauty then I think subscribing to Cohorted would be cost effective and a good way to try new products and experiment with different brands.

  1. this looks like a good box! i really love the better than sex mascara and think that it is definitely worth the hype - but in a way I kind of think that there are sooo many drugstore mascaras that work so well too!

  6. I used to love beauty boxes but now I'm only really into the ones which are one off boxes like Latest In Beauty, the idea of subscribing to something is just too much commitment for my liking! There are good products in here but it's a shame about the nail polish, I feel like they're such filler products!

  14. I used to be subscribed to the Cohorted beauty box, but then I kept getting disheartened by the products and I really wasn't using many at all - I do find the Cohorted offering to be quite hit and miss, as I have received some absolute gems but then on the other hand, I have received products that I will never use.. The box you received this month looks awesome though and I'm gutted I missed out on the Bella Pierre products and the Too Faced mini mascara!! xo
