So if you think back to when I first introduced Coterie to you, then you know I wanted to learn some more information. I am a member of IFABBO & was lucky enough to be able to participate in an online chat with one of the creators along with other beauty gals. Catherine Magee was so much fun to learn about, from her background in beauty (much like the other staff!) to their plans for the future. This is definitely a group of people who know their stuff!
I was randomly selected as the winner of a Coterie gift basket! Man was a I suprised & excited! They have featured some of my favorite brands such as butterLONDON & Peter Thomas Roth. So I awaited my gift to share with you guys!
There were some shipping issues (all the postal service, not on Coterie's end) but it finally arrived! I went ahead & used each product so I could provide a little bit of a review for each. I plan to review each full so make sure & let me know what you want to see first!
Coterie is an exclusive, members-only site featuring an ultra-selective collection of the newest and most sought-after beauty products. In collaboration with top makeup artists, stylists and industry trendsetters, Coterie provides the woman on-the-go access to everything she needs to know, all in one place.
Pink Sugar Hair Perfume by Aquolina: I have the perfume version of this scent so I was thrilled to receive the hair perfume! This scent is just so yummy & is often viewed as quite sexy. I'm pretty sure it is because it smells like warm sugar...& guys seem to love that as well! This scented my hair without leaving any residue. Smells great & was a great addition to the perfume!
EVOLVh UltraShine Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner: This duo arrived just in time! My hair is drastically turning toward to the dry side. Stupid winter. I read up on these & they are supposed to be some of the most hydrating hair products in the world. With lots of moisture & fatty acids, this left my hair nicely hydrated! My hair was left shiny & frizz free, loving it!
Chella Mattifying Hydrator SPF 25 Day Cream: If you've been reading my blog for awhile, then you know I'm an SPF freak. With freckles like mine & a history of cancer, I'm pretty much a freak about it. I love that this is both mattifying AND has SPF. This goes on smooth & isn't too thick to put makeup over. This also smells nice & fresh!
HighTech Cosmetics Instant Lifting: This was definitly the most intimidating of the bunch! Why? This claims to give me results in only 15 minutes! My skin has kind of been freaking out lately (I had a horrible allergic reaction to a Clinique product boo) so I haven't given this one a fair shot...yet!
Susan Posnick ColorEye Define in Sapphire Liner & Ametrine Shadow: I've never tried anything from Susan Posnick so yay for trying a new brand! The liner side isn't a super rich color. It is pretty waxy which makes it great for the waterline. Applying it to my skin itself was a little bit tougher. I absolutely love the eyeshadow side, the color is gorgeous! This also looks great patted atop a liner for a lot more pop.
Peter Thomas Roth Clini-Matte All Day Oil Control SPF 20: I'm in love. This is amazing. Not only does it have SPF & mattifies...but it has a pump which I love too. After application, it almost looks like I've applied a primer, my skin looks & feels fab. I am so crazy impressed!
Colbert MD Heal & Soothe Night Cream: This comes in chic silver reflective packaging & has such an organic scent, not chemical-like at all. This was nicely moisturizing & not greasy. It was comfortable for nightly wear!
I think this is a great way of showing you brands that have been/will be featured on Coterie! I suggest signing up for their newsletter to stay updated, that is the key to sites like this. Sites that offer discounts or specialty items have to be watched or else you'll miss what you're looking for!
