Cohorted Beauty Box Review – December 2017
Cohorted Beauty Box is a luxe beauty subscription box from the UK – and they are now shipping worldwide!
This subscription comes in a box within a box, so the inner box is pristine and would be great to keep for storage:
Complete with ribbon!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The Cost: £35.00 + shipping for international customers (My total cost was £47.49 = $62.92 USD)

FYI – usually this box comes with a booklet, but mine was missing from the box. (You can check out the digital form of the booklet, though!
(FYI – I received this palette from Cohorted in the September box. According to their online booklet, I should have received the Cargo Emerald City Palette instead. I emailed them about the product mix up, and I’ll update this review once I hear back with their resolution.)
UPDATE: Cohorted customer care responded and they are sending me the correct palette.
This palette has a magnetic flap closure and a combo brush with a blender brush on one end and a liner brush on the other end. There are 6 matte and 6 shimmer shades.
Here it is swatched:
Tarte Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint in Obvi – Retail Value $20
(Subscribers either received this or Huda Beauty Lip Strobe in Ritzy.)
This is a pale rosy shade with good pigment and a glossy finish. (I’ve sampled their matte version of this lip paint, so it was nice to try the gloss!) The formula is moisturizing and non-sticky, too. The color is a little more light than I usually go, but this is great for a no-makeup look.

Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner – .04 oz Value $11.40
This eyeliner is waterproof and the felt tip marker makes it super easy to apply a straight line, too. The pigment is excellent, too.

Becca Shadow and Light Brow Contour Mousse in Cocoa – Retail Value $25 (Currently 50% off on Becca’s site.)
This product is one part brow mousse, one part browbone highlighter:
This is the lightest of the shades Becca offers, and the brow color is too light for me, but I tried it and I liked the formula. (It coats brow hairs to make brows look fuller.) And the highlighter is creamy and easy to blend for above and below your brows to create a defined look.
Here are both swatched beneath the lip gloss and eyeliner:
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $90.40. I paid about $63 (including shipping to the US). I think this box is a great deal if you live in the UK and get free shipping. For me, to pay this kind of money on an imported beauty box, I’m hoping for all full-sized items that I don’t usually see in US beauty boxes.
This box was a mixed bag for me. I liked trying out the tarte lip gloss and the Becca brow product, but getting the wrong Cargo palette, and a sample sized Eyeko liner wasn’t exciting. Hopefully, Cohorted resolves the palette issue. (And I’ve had a few issues now with incorrect products in boxes, so I’m hoping those get straightened out in 2018!)
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No.
