I've been Cohorted!


I first discovered Cohorted after reading a blog post by Thumbelina Lillie. The idea is simple; sought-after products are sold via Cohorted and the more people that purchase, the lower the price gets (there's a limit of course!)
What a genius idea!
Everyone loves a bargain, but receiving a bit of discount on something that is high-end is relatively unheard of! Sometimes a product may be only 10% off but there have been products on offer at a whopping 70% off previously, and with brands such as D&G, Benefit, Too Faced and Chanel to name a few, this website is every beauty lover's dream.

4 cohorts are released every week, each with 7 days in which to buy, although the more popular the product, the quicker it is likely to sell but at a cheaper price as lots of people are buying it...geddit?
You can also 'request' a future cohort from a list of products, by leaving your email address and then you receive a lovely little email when it goes live so you can get your debit cards at the ready! This part is a bit of a tease if you ask me though, as I'm so impatient and the future cohorts always look so good...

After a couple of weeks of checking the website to see what was on offer, I decided to take the plunge and join the cohort, buying this little beauty!


Every woman and her cats want a piece of the Urban Decay action and ever since the release of the Naked Basics palettes, they have been on everyones wishlists. I'm severely lacking in the Naked palette department, and I'm not lucky enough to own any of the full size palettes just yet (they're on my christmas list though!), so I thought this would be a good place to start!
I've never been much of an eyeshadow lover - I always thought the options were either a black smokey eye or something ridiculously bright and obnoxious - but lord above, I've been converted. I'm all about a subtle eye and bold lip, and this little palette aids me with that perfectly. The 6 matte shades that come with this go from an ivory to a very dark brown, with plenty of neutral shades in between.

l-r Skimp, Stark, Frisk, Cover, Primal, Undone

I now wear eyeshadow pretty much everyday and this palette has drastically change my attitude towards makeup - cheesy, I know, but true! - I can't wait to get my hands on the full sized palettes and have a play with the shimmery shades. 

The Naked Basics 2 set me back a modest £15.40 (rrp £22) so I saved a lovely £6.40. Not a groundbreaking saving but every little helps! You receive free delivery on all cohorts and you also receive loyalty points after every purchase, which is another cool idea!
The only negative thing I have to say is that delivery did take a while, probably about 2 weeks as you have to wait until all 4 cohorts for that week end before your order is dispatched (I ordered on the first day the cohort came out which was probably the wrong move!), however that is me being a bit pedantic and if I'd have read the website's delivery info a bit better it would have more than likely explained all that!

I'd definitely join another cohort soon, and I already have my eye on a few products that will be for sale soon! If you love a bargain and can't resist a luxury product then this is the website for you! New cohorts are posted online every Monday at 6pm so go check out what all the fuss is about this Monday! You will not be disappointed :)

  1. I really want to use cohorted! I always have a peak but haven't bought anything yet. I love the naked palettes - I have the 1 and 3 and they have totally transformed how I feel about eye make up as well, they are so easy to use and super flattering :) x

  2. I haven't heard or coherted either, sounds good though. I don't really give into the popularity of makeup products so i haven't tried the any of the naked palettes. I usually only eye brown eyeshadow though so it does look like a nice range of shades :) x

    1. Well I think to be honest that's why I don't own one yet! I'm not normally one to go buy something just because everyone else is - i'll simply buy it because I love it myself - and since I saw the naked palettes my friend owns I was jealous straight away! I'm a neutral kinda gal too but I love my basics palette :) give it a go! x

    1. You definitely should Marie :) it's not as bank-breaking as the full sized palette and every shade is wearable and practical! x

  7. I've signed up but I'm yet to actually use it, I didn't realise shipping waited for all the cohorts, that's rubbish for someone as impatient as me!
