The Cohorted Beauty Box is a new beauty box brought to us by Cohorted. Who I’m sure you’ve all heard of, but if not, Cohorted offer us four new cohorts every week, sometimes quite hard to get products in the UK and from brands such as Mac or Urban Decay at a discounted price. You just join the cohort you want and the more people who join it it will go down in price. There is a maximum discount though and you will all pay the same price. So with the launch of the beauty box, they also re-launched their site so they now offer a whole load more beauty products at discounted prices too.  You can check them out here.

The February box went on sale on the 9th February at 6pm, there were a few problems ordering, but this was to be expected as there were only 100 boxes available and so many people wanted one so the site was exceptionally slow. Eventually I managed to place an order about 6:30pm and the box arrived about a week later. The box did come wrapped in a little bow which was a nice touch but impatient me undid it without taking a photo! 
Dolce & Gabbana Clarifying Lotion 150ml £20 – This was the first product I was drawn to, obviously due to the gold packaging! I was quite excited to see this in the box as for one, it’s a full sized product and from Dolce & Gabbana! I’m looking forward to giving this a go but I have read that it’s no longer being produced which is a bit disappointing so I’m hoping I don’t like it too much that I want another bottle when this one is finished!
Benefit Bella Bamba Lipgloss 15ml £14.50 – I’m a huge Benefit fan but funnily enough have never tried any of their lip products. I’m currently wearing this as I type and it is lovely. Non-sticky and really comfortable on the lips. The Bella Bamba is a sheer bright watermelon shade which is perfect for those days when you don’t want to wear a full coverage lip product but still want to wear something on your lips. Like the Dolce & Gabbana Clarifying Lotion above, I’m quite disappointed to have read that the Bella Bamba is also apparently being discontinued. 
Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara 3ml £8.00 – Another mascara to add to my already overflowing mascara collection, but I’m not complaining! Bobbi Brown is a brand I’ve always wanted to try, but haven’t yet so I was excited to see this in the box! It is said to give you thicker, fuller, bolder lashes in a single stroke and is meant to be the perfect compliment to a smokey eye look (as the name suggests!) I can’t wait to give it a try!
Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser 50ml £15.00 – If you read my post on the Look Fantastic box you’ll remember me mentioning about purchasing some more Korres products after receiving the Citrus Body Milk in that box, so I was pretty happy when I saw this box contained not one, but two products from Korres! I’m looking forward to giving this cleanser a go.
Korres Quercetin and Oak Eye Primer 4ml £10.00 – The 2nd of the Korres products is this eye primer. An anti-ageing, crease resisting, matte finish, long lasting base for your concealer and eyeshadow. I already use the Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix Eye Primer for my eyeshadow base so I can’t wait to see how this compares to that. As for concealer, any of the concealers I wear seem to disappear after a while so it’ll be interesting to see if the Korres primer does help to keep my concealer in place.
That’s all the products featured in the February Cohorted Box. Overall, for the price (£19.99 not including postage) it is a very good box, as all the products featured are worth £67.00. The only disappointing thing is the fact there are two discontinued products in the box, but the chances of me ever wanting to buy them again are very slim anyway. The March box pre-order is currently sold out, but if any more become available I think I’ll definitely be purchasing another.

Last week I was lucky enough to win these 4 lip creams by Makeup Revolution over on Albertine’s blog. The lip creams are £3 each and come in 10 different shades. Read on what to find out what I think..

From left to right – Say yes, its what we do best; Sweet Boy with a big mouth; Move your mouth forever; Not one for playing games.

If you’re a blogger or an avid blog reader, then I’m sure you’ve heard of Makeup Revolution by now.  A great affordable brand with amazing products, I have a few already and love them so to win these lip creams was exciting, I couldn’t wait for them to arrive!
The Ultra Velour lip creams promise to give an ultra velour finish with intensive colour and be comfortable to wear, apply smooth and last up to 8 hours. This is somewhat right, they probably would last 8 hours, but only if you didn’t eat or drink during this timescale! They do however apply smoothly and are definitely one of the most comfortable to wear lip products in my collection. I would usually stay clear of matte lip products, due to how drying they can be, however these lip creams are far from drying, you hardly notice it.
Another great thing about these lip creams is the smell, they have quite a sweet smell but it is oh so lovely! I could sit here all day just smelling them! Ha!
At £3 each, these lip creams are such a bargain. The formula you’d expect from a more expensive brand, the packaging too. I’m really impressed with these and will be buying a few more!
What’s your favourite Makeup Revolution product?

The Roller Lash is a brand new mascara from Benefit Cosmetics. Known for their No.1 Best Selling Mascara, They’re Real! I was intrigued to try out this new launch so I picked up a copy of Elle Magazine, who are giving you the chance to try it out (for only £4!) before the mascara officially launches. 

This mascara has a unique hook ‘n’ roll brush, based on old school velcro rollers and is said to curl your lashes so good that you won’t need to use eyelash curlers. The brush is also the perfect size for reaching all your lashes including the bottom lashes (I usually struggle with those!) and applies the mascara evenly. Benefit also suggest layering They’re Real on top for a dramatic look, I might just have to give this a go!
I have now worn this a couple of times and I have to say this could easily become my favourite mascara. It is long lasting, non clumpy, gives a great curl and removes easily (unlike They’re Real!). I will definitely be buying a full size tube when my sample runs out.
If you wish to try the Roller Lash mascara before purchasing the full size version then grab the March issue of Elle Magazine now, be quick though, they’re flying off the shelves! 
Benefit Roller Lash mascara goes on sale from tomorrow and is priced at £19.50.

The Look Fantastic beauty box is a monthly beauty box brought to us by online beauty store, Look Fantastic. It is a non subscription box meaning you can order whenever you like unlike many other beauty boxes which I like a lot, although Look Fantastic have just set up a subscription service for the boxes if you prefer that. The box contains 6 beauty products, all worth £48 for £15.00 which is amazing! 
Let’s have a look at the products in February’s box..
The Dr Paw Paw Original Balm is a multipurpose soothing balm for lips, skin, hair, cuticles and nails. I’m abit of a lip balm hoarder so I was really excited to receive this, having used it a little already I’m impressed, it’s very moisturising. Will definitely consider buying this in the future.
Having not heard about Bellapierre before I’m looking forward to trying this, I do like wearing a bit of eyeliner every now and then. The colour is really nice also.
I was so excited to see this in the box! Definitely my favourite product. I love using Moroccanoil products on my hair, they improve it ALOT and it sure does need it!
This. Smells. Absolutely. Wonderful. I have never tried Korres before, but have always been intrigued by them. After trying this I will definitely be purchasing some of their products. Do you have any recommendations? 
I love a good primer and definitely love my Benefit ‘Porefessional’ primer the most. This Monu primer is quite different to the Porefessional so I’m quite excited to try it out. I may do a proper review on this at a later date.
Last but not least..
I’ll be honest when I first saw this I was like ‘What the hell is this?’ .. I’m definitely really excited to try this and see the results it gives.
This was my first box from Look Fantastic and I’m definitely considering buying another next month, I also think this is one of the best beauty boxes around so if you would like to have one yourself go buy it now at Look Fantastic for £15.. I wouldn’t be surprised if it sold out soon so hurry!
