Autumn Beauty Picks Ft. Cohorted

Monday, October 20, 2014

Many of my readers and fellow bloggers have been raving about the website Cohorted recently. My blog followers may remember that I worked with Cohorted on a giveaway a few months ago. Cohorted is a unique shopping website in which weekly deals reduce in price to a set discount when more people join the cohort, the more everyone wants a product, the better the discount! Cohorted have been killing it recently with amazing products from Urban Decay, Dolce & Gabbana, Too Faced and more! I was kindly sent a couple of items from Cohorted to review from real Techniques and Smashbox. 
I have the *Real Techniques Mini Brush Trio (RRP £9.99, max Cohorted discount will be 25%). I have a lot of Real Techniques brush (two sets of the core collection, two sets of the starter set, the expert face brush and the retractable bronzer brush all of which I love). The mini travel trio is a great idea for touch ups on the go and they are freakin' adorable! The brushes look and feel like the original, full size versions although they don't have the rubber handle. All three brushes are very soft, smooth and work effectively. I have been using the mini face brush for foundation, the mini foundation brush for highlight and the mini shading brush for eyeshadow. Overall, I am impressed with the mini trio, they are just as soft, smooth and effective as the original full size brushes, in my opinion, and they are so cute! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.
I have also been using the Real Techniques mini trio with the *Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights in 'Baked Stardust' (RRP £25, max Cohorted discount will be 25%) which in my opinion is a bronzer, blush and highlight all in one compact. I can use the lighter creamy shade as a brow bone and cheek highlighter, the pinky shade as a highlighter blush and the two deeper brown shades as a radiant bronzer. Also I have been using all of the shades as eyeshadows. The pigmentation isn't great although I think that is a positive point as it means I don't like like a glitter ball or a clown! The finish of this product is just gorgeous, so radiant and fresh but not glittery or shiny/oily looking. I have mainly been lightly swirling the Real Techniques mini face brush in all of the shades and applying to the top and back of my cheeks for a glowing, 'lit from within' look which is so pretty for dull, grey english autumn/winter days. ★★★★★, 5/5, you will see this product in a few upcoming posts. 


The Real Techniques Mini Brush Trio will be one of tonights deals (along with the Real Techniques Miracle Sponge)!


Have you bought anything from Cohorted? Have you tried either of these products?

  9. I only recently found out about Cohorted and I love the idea of the website. Been keeping an eye on it every Monday. I really like all my Real Techniques brushes but I thought this mini trio was way too small, plus I don't like the foundation brush so instead, I bought the new mini brushes from Eco Tools. They are so much nicer in my opinion. They are a little bit bigger, so easier to use and there's a powder, eyeshadow and eyeliner brush, instead of the flat foundation brush. I have a review on it in my blog, if you fancy having a look. xx
