Apart from ordering a couple of the Latest in Beauty boxes last year, I never really fancied subscribing to any of the major beauty boxes because they just seemed to hit and miss - one of them may be amazing whereas the next month's would be a big disappointment. But, when I saw what bloggers were receiving in their monthly Cohorted Beauty Boxes, and how much of a struggle it was to get one before they sold out I caved in and managed to get my hands on the August one.
I was on holiday when it was delivered so I had to wait impatiently until a few days after I got back to collect it from the Post Office and finally get my hands on it.
So, you may have guessed where this is heading buuuut...I'm a little disappointed with it! The contents include: Bare Vitamins Skin Revver-Upper, Bare Escentuals Soft Focus Face Brush, Molten Brown Body Cream (sample size), Laura Geller eye shadow duo in Fine Wines and a Cargo eye shadow palette.
I'll start with the products that I like shall I?! I love the face brush; even though it's pretty small the quality is excellent and it's perfect for applying setting powder - it was good to try a different brand too as I usually stick to the same ones I already love.
The Bare Vitamins Skin Revver-Upper is my favourite product of the lot, I put it on just before my foundation as a primer and it gives my skin a luminous lit-from-within look which I've not had before from other bases. This is one thing that I would definitely repurchase in the future.
I also like the Laura Geller eyeshadows, the purple shade really pigmented and is great for creating a dramatic smokey look, and the light shade is perfect for wearing in the corners of the eyes to make them appear bigger.
The Cargo palette was the biggest disappointment as I just don't like the shades. I find them far too orange for me and unflattering, so I can't see me getting hardly any wear out of them.
Have you got the Cohorted August box? What did you think of it? xx
