My June Cohorted Beauty Box
My June Cohorted beauty box arrived! The amount of excitement is unreal, no sooner had the delivery man handed it over - I was tearing away the packaging!
I sadly missed out on last months box so when I finally managed to pre order this June one I was over the moon!
So the box itself is very sleek and sexy, finished off with an adorable ribbon to keep it closed. I will definitely be re-using this to store make-up in, it's far too good to waste.
Next on to the juicy bit, what was inside.....
I got a total of 4 items. Three of which everyone gets the same, with a slight variation of colour for the nail varnish and the 4th is a mystery gift which makes it even more shrouded in mystery!
Cargo Eye Palette - "Let's meet in Paris"
Cargo Bronzer - Light
Essie Nail Varnish - Roarrange
MAC Eyeshadow - 'Shroom'
Having never tried any make-up items from Cargo Cosmetics I am so far really impressed.
The "Let's meet in Paris" palette is full of such pretty unique colours that when swatched are so pigmented and colourful.
TOP ROW L to R
Macaroon, Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Creme Brulee, Bonjour, Cafe.
BOTTOM ROW: L to R
Baguette, Croissant, Versailles, Madame, Bastille, Beret.
My fave shades are "Creme brulee" and "Madame".
Bonjour and Baguette were a bit of a let down for me not being as pigmented. Bonjour felt a bit chalky to apply and Baguette was difficult to seebut other than those two the other shades definitely pack a punch! The baroque design of the case is very eye catching and has a luxurious velvety feel!
The Bronzer is in the shade light which is perfect for me, as it gives a subtle glow and they say it is waterproof! I love the tin design, it's so cute!
Essie Nail Varnish
I got the shade "Roarrrange" which is a bright orange. A lovely striking summer shade. Not a colour I would usually go for but when on gives a lovely pop of colour!
Last of all my mystery gift was a MAC Eyeshadow in "Shroom"
With it being so iridescent, it's difficult to capture on camera, but it is a creamy pearly satin shade.
A very subtle but pretty highlight colour that's perfect for the inner corner of the eye and the brow bone.
Overall I am extremely pleased with my beauty box from Cohorted. It provides such amazing value for just £19.99 + P&P. It was definitely worth the wait!
Did you manage to get your hands on a Cohorted box? What was your mystery gift??
