Posted on August 8, 2016

cohorted-july-2016-review

Hi Guys!

I’m a bit late with this one but I finally have Cohorted’s July box to share with you – and in my opinion it’s one of their best yet! Let’s take a look inside the box –

  • NARS Monoi Body Glow 2, worth £25.00.
  • HD Brows Sculpt & Glow Palette, worth £45.00.
  • Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil, worth £10.00.
  • Vintage Cosmetics Company Blending Sponge, worth £5.95.
  • Bellapierre Mineral Lipstick in Envy, worth £17.05.
  • Bellapierre Waterproof Gel Lipliner in Cinnamon, worth £17.05.

Total value of box = £120.05. WOW! So this box is basically worth a fortune, and includes some fantastic sounding products…

The NARS Monoi Body Glow 2 is a lightweight, multipurpose oil, with the most gorgeous warm tropical fragrance – it just smells like holiday! It contains Monoï de Tahiti oil infused with a variety of nutrients, to leave skin glowing, hydrated and radiant. The bottle also contains a sweet little tiare flower for an added element of luxury.

Next, the HD Brows Sculpt & Glow Palette – this handy palette contains two easy to use shades to contour and highlight the face. It promises to create a naturally highlighted effect that will leave the face looking radiant and illuminated. It’s also infused with Argan Oil to deliver moisture to the complexion, whilst remaining gentle to the skin.

The Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil is described as an indulgent way to cleanse skin, containing a blend of Jasmine Flower Extract, Kukui Nut Oil and botanical oils it dissolves surface impurities and makeup without disrupting the skin’s natural balance. Leaving skin feeling soothed, supple and comfortable.

The Vintage Cosmetics Company Blending Sponge – just like a Beauty Blender, the Vintage Cosmetics Company Blending Sponge promises to help you apply makeup such as foundation, concealer and highlighter with ease, giving a flawless, no-streak finish. The sponge is also infused with Vitamin E, which is renowned for its moisturising properties.

And the Bellapierre Mineral Lipstick in Envy is the most gorgeous muted dusky rose shade – this really caught my eye just because the colour is so beautiful! The lipstick formula contains a blend of iron oxides with vitamins C and E to protect and moisturise lips, while the natural mineral pigments and waxes allow the colour to glide on effortlessly for a smooth and long-lasting finish.

And lastly, the Bellapierre Waterproof Gel Lipliner in Cinnamon – this is a waterproof lip pencil with a creamy texture, formulated with minerals, natural waxes, and antioxidants to give perfect definition, that you can apply with ease.

Fragrance Direct Beauty Haul!

Posted on March 31, 2015

Hi Guys!

After a not so great start to the week yesterday, the lovely guys at Fragrance Direct have sent me an awesome box of products to play with, this is just what I needed! I had no idea what to expect so I was beyond happy when I opened up the parcel to find a massive bundle of products from some fantastic brands, including Bobbi Brown, Benefit and OPI. It felt like Christmas opening it up! Here’s what I received –

  • Loreal Extra Volume Collagene Mascara (£4.99)
  • Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks in Powder Pink (£17.50)
  • Calvin Klein Creme Lipstick in Eros (£1.99)
  • Benefit Fake Up in 01 Light (£12.99)
  • OPI Nail Polish in A Roll In The Hague (£3.99)
  • OPI Nail Polish in Baring It All (£3.99)
  • Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Buff (£16.00)
  • Calvin Klein Bronzing Powder in Enhance (£2.99)
  • Calvin Klein Creme Lipstick in Desire (£1.99)
  • Calvin Klein Bronzing Powder in Sun Bathe (£2.99)

If you look at the prices you’ll see that all of the products are cheaper than you’d expect, and some are really heavily discounted. I won’t be covering everything today as there’s just too much and this post will take forever to read through, so I thought I’d talk about a brand that I haven’t tried before – Calvin Klein Cosmetics.

Now to be honest Calvin Klein aren’t really known for their cosmetics, fragrances definitely but makeup, not so much. My first experience of Calvin Klein was when my boyfriend at the time bought a 16 year old me a bottle of Eternity for Christmas that year. That scent brings back good memories!

It’s quite obvious that some of the best bargains in my stash here easily have to be the Calvin Klein products. £2.99 for a bronzer that should be £17.99 and £1.99 for a £13.50 lipstick – talk about cheap as chips! I’ve looked online to try and find some more info out about CK cosmetics, but I think this range is possibly slightly older? As I can only find CK One cosmetics available.

The Calvin Klein Summer Affair Bronzing Powder is a micro fine bronzing powder that comes in three shades, promising a radiant complexion without exposure to the sun.

I have two shades of this bronzer, the darker one is Sun Bathe and the lighter shade is Enhance. They both have a hint of sparkle and I love that the pans are massive – perfect for getting a big bronzing brush in there! The lighter shade is definitely the one for me, and I think these would look great buffed all over the body for a night out!

The Calvin Klein Delicious Luxury Cream Lipsticks are described as luxurious, ultra conditioning and give lips a smooth matte finish, and they have a non-feathering formula that protects and hydrates.

I have shades Eros 142 and Desire 149. Admittedly I wasn’t overly keen when I saw the lipsticks before trying them out, but when I swatched them I was instantly impressed with the creamy consistency which gave a semi-matte finish, and the pigmentation was excellent too. These are two lovely shades, Eros especially being a bright red / orange is perfect for Spring. I definitely want to look into stocking up on some more colours! I also swatched the Bobbi Brown lip gloss while I was checking the products out – I’ll have this reviewed along with some more of the products on a separate post very soon.

I’d love to hear if you’ve tried Calvin Klein makeup before? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
