So it’s my favourite time of the month again, Cohorted Box time! I love receiving my box each month as it’s like receiving a little present! This month I was extra excited for my September box as I am on a spending ban, and even though it’s only a couple of weeks in I am struggling. I just want to spend!! Here is what came in my September box:
Cargo Land Down Under Eye Shadow Palette – Full Size
This is the first Cargo product that I have tried and it’s beautiful! When I opened up the palette I was blown away by the beautiful colours, a mix of mattes and shimmers in mainly neutrals but with amazing greens and blues added! The shadows are amazingly pigmented and super soft, even the mattes blend like a dream. I think this could be one of my new favourites, the mattes are absolutely beautiful! The palette also comes with a black pencil eyeliner and a double ended brush, the brush is actually super soft!
MAC False Lashes Extreme Mascara – 3ml Sample Size
Well this is a huge disappointment, I get this exact same sample for free every time I shop at MAC! I am really not interested in paying for a box when you get products that would be free anyway! This mascara is great and I do really like it so at least I will use this sample.
Percy & Reed No Fuss Fabulousness Dry Shampoo 150ml – Full Size
Percy & Reed definitely win the award for the prettiest haircare packaging, the beautiful illustrations really look great on their minimalist packaging. It takes me so long to dry and wash my long hair, so when I get greasy roots there is nothing I love more than cutting corners and using a dry shampoo. The only problem is the texture, I hate the sticky feeling that some can leave you with, and I have found that certain brands can give me a really itchy scalp so I am always on the hunt for new ones! Percy & Reed claim that their dry shampoo gives your hair that just washed look by soaking up excess oil and cleansing the scalp, leaving your hair looking fresh, shiny and shimmering. Well it sounds good and I am very excited to give it ago when my greasy roots make an appearance!
Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Overnight Recovery 75ml – Sample Size
Another Percy & Reed product but this one I know I already love. I received this hair mask free in a magazine a few months ago and absolutely loved it, so I am super excited to have another one! This is a leave-in treatment that you apply to dry hair before bed and then wash out in the morning, it’s not as messy as it sounds as it is absorbed into the hair and nearly disappears meaning no mess! When you wash the treatment out your hair is left incredibly soft and feels really nourished, I even apply this to my hair in the morning if I am staying in all day and wash out in the evening as I love the effect it has.
Kure Bazaar French Rose Nail Polish – Full Size
Kure Bazaar is a new brand too me, it’s apparently France’s number one nail polish. The colour I got is part of their new Rose Nude Collection called French Rose, it is a clear nail polish with a hint of pink. If you love french nails then this will be great, However I personally don’t really like the french look so I don’t think I will get much use out of it unfortunately. I have given it a go though and the formula is really easy to apply and is super shiny. I have looked online and they have some beautiful colours so hopefully I can buy another one to try.
So overall this box has been good, the Cargo palette has definitely been the highlight for me and I am loving the Percy & Reed products, fingers crossed next month doesn’t have any teeny samples!
