Cohorted Beauty box – March 2015 Unboxing/Review

First things first, I don’t have the April Cohorted box pre-ordered, booo! I am rather sad about this, I knew which day the pre-order was going live but assumed it was going to be the evening, like the previous month, but it was the morning! So  you won’t be seeing an April box from me – Why am I So sad about this? Well the March box is Awesome!

 The little leaflet with the products on is on a shiny paper, this time, which has a rather high quality feel about it – The image on this side is beautiful and really fits in with the image that, it feels, Cohorted are trying to make for the box.

As well as the changes to the leaflet, there’s also a nice addition to the box for this month – Ok so the box, itself, isn’t massively important but a lot of people keep empty boxes for storage and the addition of a beautiful ribbon to secure the box, this month, definitely goes towards making this a much more appealing box, especially from a storage point of view.
And here’s what was in the box! I liked the February box but a lot of people weren’t too sure about it (my post is here) but I think it’s safe to say that most people will be pleased by the selection of brands in this month’s box! Full sized Too Faced, full sized Sleek and full sized bareMinerals plus a sample size of Urban Decay… goodness me. I think This is what people were hoping for when they knew Cohorted were going to make a box.
The highest value item in the box, and from a brand I’ve never tried before, is this ‘Pure Transformation Night Treatment’ by bareMinerals. It’s worth £45 which is worth over double the cost of the box, straight away, which makes it a very impressive addition. I’m going to be honest, here, I referred to this as weird earlier… why? Well it’s a night product that comes in shades! I got it in the shade ‘light’ (would be interested to see if other people got other shades or not), there’s 4 in total, a transparent one (which might have made sense to go in a box for people with all different complexions) and light, medium and tan.

Essentially this is a product that you put on, at night, that’s meant to replenish the skin as you sleep, it’s meant to refine pores and make skin more radiant. I, really, don’t know why you need colour to do that but I’m really intrigued to find out. I’ve read some great reviews on this, just scanning the interwebs, and I’m very very interested in how my skin will like it – It’s such an exciting, and different product to get in a box, impressed Cohorted, very impressed.

This palette, actually, looks black but with a copper/golden sheen but the light just meant that it wanted to show up as its metallic counterpart in photographs – It does look rather beautiful, though.
The ‘Precious Metals Highlighting Palette’ is worth £9.99, so is another great addition to the box. 

There’s four shades in the palette, three cream highlighters and one powder; I really love cream highlighters so it’s perfect for me. I’ve not swatched them yet but can’t wait to play with them, they look so so pretty and I’m a huge fan of Sleek so always happy to add another of their items to my collection.
I couldn’t believe it when I saw Too Faced along side the other brands you’ve already seen; wow, simply wow! I was really pleased to see that the item was an eye shadow, too, as I love Too Faced shadows but don’t have many. 

This ‘Exotic Color Intense Eye Shadow’ is in the shade ‘Copper Peony’, it’s a beautiful. bright copper shade that’s warm but I think is passable as a shade for cooler skin tones, too, yay. 

I really love the shade and was so pleased to see it was so beautiful, with boxes you often end up getting something really obscure so it’s really nice to know that it’s such a wearable shade that so many people will like. This is worth £15.
Lastly we have a sample of Urban Decay‘s ‘Perversion’ mascara – Again, wow. Urban Decay! The mascara is supposed to be volumising as well as something that defines every lash which sounds like exactly the sort of mascara I like. I’ve never tried an Urban Decay mascara before so am really pleased that I’ll be able to try this one. As far as samples go, this one is really impressive – The packaging is amazing, just like a miniature of the full sized rather than something just thrown together for a sample, it’ll also give us plenty of uses to decide as to whether or not we like it.

I’m amazed by this month’s box – So many amazing brands, with three of them being full sized, I definitely am not complaining about the prevalence of makeup items, too, as that’d always be my preference from boxes as I’m a total makeup junkie. I am interested to see what the April box is like and will be keeping an eye out for the May box as I am hoping I’ll be able to grab one in time!
