Cohorted December Beauty Box | Review

When it comes to beauty boxes, its not really something I have tried before, mainly because I worry I will get a box full of things I won't like! I have tried the Cohorted Fragrance Box previously which was amazing and the value of what was inside was insane, therefore when the Cohorted December Beauty Box arrived at my door, I was pretty excited. 

The main thing I have noticed and really like about the Cohorted boxes is that they contain a really good range of popular, well known branded products, even some products that I wouldn't necessarily go and buy myself as they're out of my price range. Anyway lets move on to see whats inside this edition of the beauty box...

First up and probably the most exciting product for me is the Too Faced Soul Mates Blushing Bronzer in Ross and Rachel, isn't it just so beautiful?! I have wanted to try this brand for the longest time but I haven't because I just haven't wanted to fork out the cost for the things I have on my wish list. I am always wanting to try new bronzers so for me this was a perfect product to be inside the box. This little compact is super cute, has two products in one and a large mirror so it will be perfect for on the go, the shade is so stunning, I can't wait to try it. 

Next is another very exciting product and its the MAC Satin Lipstick in Rebel, a shade I actually already own which is a shame, but I will most likely hold a giveaway with this for one of my lovely readers to win, stay tuned on Twitter and Instagram to hear more on that. Rebel is such a staple shade and particularly for this time of year it is a big favourite in the beauty world, one of mine too, I love how this looks against my skin tone and of course, MAC lipsticks are just totally fab. 

We then have two products from NARS, see I told you the Cohorted box was good for well known brands! The NARS Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatment in Lana is going to come in extremely handy in the warmer months next year, I have really started to think about my skin and protection in the last couple of years so this type of product is right up my street. I hear nothing but good things about NARS lip products so I have high hopes for this. Then also from NARS inside the box is the Flat Concealer Brush, I again hear really good things about the brushes by this brand so was really excited to be able to get my hands on one. This brush will be great for targeting blemishes on the skin to achieve good concealer coverage and it will also fit perfectly around the eye area. 

Finally in this months edition there is also a super cute sample of the Marc Jacobs Honey perfume, it actually says the sample should be of the Marc Jacobs Dot perfume but anyhow, I haven't tried Honey before so I was quite glad of this as I already have the other. Honey is a really beautiful scent, its quite sweet and subtle but it is really lovely, I do love all of the perfumes by Marc Jacobs! I really like the little sample spritzers of perfume, they're so handy to pop in your handbag. 

What do you think of this beauty box?! You can pick it up from Cohorted for just £35.00 including postage, a complete bargain in my opinion when you total up the cost of whats inside!
