Cohorted Black Edition: February 2016

Let me start by saying I am sorry this is the 3rd unboxing you’re seeing in a row, it’s just how they’ve arrived this month and where they’ve fell in relation to my normal blogging schedule. On the bright-side there will be a shiny new post all about Mr. X up tomorrow, so those of you that don’t enjoy these unboxing have that to look forward to.

Back to the unboxing, I received my February Cohorted Black Edition box about 10 minutes ago, so I thought I’d hope on and show you what's inside. This is the most expensive box I receive and I’m currently on the fence about keeping it. I like to give a box 6 months before I cancel it, this is month 4 and it’s not looking good.

With that said, let’s see what’s inside….

Dove – True Tone Underarm Dark Mark Eraser: Two things right off the bat; one this isn’t the Pixi Crayon Combo the booklet says I should have and two; what kind of bullshit product is this? This product went from the box, to my hand, straight to the bin. Utterly useless.

Elemis- Pro Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks: Good Brand, nice product, I’m looking forward to giving them a try and seeing how they compare to my favorite Skyn Iceland eye mask.

bareMinerals – Night Treatment in Medium: Not sure on this one, my skin isn’t a big fan of bareMinerals products so I may not risk it and just pass it along.

Cargo – Long Wear Lips Gloss in Tokyo: I don’t tend to like Cargo Cosmetics, that's me a personal thing, that said; the lip gloss seems ok, not too sticky when I swatched it. The problem being, it’s in a bright red shade and I’m not Taylor Swift so I’ll be passing this item along as well.

Marc Jacobs- LOLA: It’s a perfume sample, the positive being it’s a spray sample. It’s smells ok, I’m more of a sweet smell kind of girl, but I’m not heartbroken with this one.

Chanel – Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Apparition: This is a greyish blue shade which isn’t my favorite, I’m more of a brown, neutrals girl myself. I may try this as a base, but it all honestly, it felt very oily on my hand. I kind of think this may cease like bitch, but I will give it a go.

Out of the 6 items in this box, I’m looking forward to using 1 of them. Like I said, this box is on the bubble, it really isn’t my favorite nor do I feel like it’s worth the money. That said, I’m going to go and put these things away and I shall see you guys tomorrow with a non-unboxing post. As always, my dears, stay and play safe.

Cohorted Black Edition: January 2016

 This is going to be a bonus post. I received my Cohorted beauty box yesterday and I thought I’d unbox it for you. This box is pricey. It’s says it’s £35 a month… It’s not, it’s basically £70. You pay £35 your first month and receive nothing. The next month you get charged again and then you get your first box. Which would be fine if it’s worth it, but this is my 3rd box and I’m still unsure.

You do receive higher end items, some of which are awesome, others I’m petty sure are discontinued and nobody else wanted. With that said lets get into the unboxing. 

This month there are 4 items in the box, which I think is the fewest I’ve received so far. I do know they were having issues this month due to flooding so I’m trying to be nice, but I’m not wowed and I sure as hell don’t see £35 worth of product, let alone £70.  
Too Faced: Souls Mates Blushing Bronzer - Carrie & Big:  This would be an awesome item if it weren’t for the fact we received one of these just last month. Luckily last month I got Ross and Rachel and I have enjoyed using it so I’m not heartbroken to receive another one, but, it would have been nice to get something else.    

Cargo: Lip Gloss Quad – Oceania: I HATE lip gloss palettes of any sort. It remains me of being a small kid playing with makeup. I won’t be using this item. It’s a complete throw any.

Lancome: Le Correcteur Pro – 300c bisque: The colour is way off for me to use this product as its intended. I might get some use out of it if I use it as an eye shadow base. But this item is another miss for me.

Too Faced: Lip Injection Color Bomb -  Never Nude Enough: The colour is nice. The product itself was created by the devil. It burns, it smells like plastic and it settles in every line in your lips. It’s the hat trick of shit.  I’ll also say this, I put it on 30 minutes ago and took it off 28 minutes ago, my lips still hurt and I can still smell it.

So clearly this box this month was a complete waste of £35. Hopefully next months will be better, but we’ll have to wait and see. Let me know if you like these unboxing in the comments down below and as always stay and play safe.
