Beauty Cocoon Box | Beauty Subscription Box for Women of Colour

This is a review about Beauty Cocoon Beauty subscription boxes.

To be honest I have felt some sort of way about beauty subscription boxes. I usually find them full of beauty products that I cannot use. I mean when you receive beige concealer, you just think (as a dark skin girl) ermmmmmmmm so what am I going to do with this product!!! This is why I stopped subscribing to these beauty boxes, I just concluded that they are not made for women like me. It is a shame really, because chocolate ladies like to spend their coins on makeup!

This Beauty Cocoon box was sent to me by the lovely Yemi, the founder of Beauty Cocoon, and I was impressed at the concept of it. A beauty subscription box specially for women of colour? Sounds really interesting right. I was eager to check it out.

PACKAGING

I love the packaging of this box. The box is small and compact but is sturdy enough to keep all the goodies inside safe. I love the rose-gold coloured box. It just screams glam for me. Y’all know I am in love with gold!

The box comes with a leaflet that I was very impressed with. It lists the products in the box and the best way to use them which is great. I really like the fact that it does not assume that everyone is a makeup and/or beauty guru. I have had beauty boxes in the past, where I have had no idea on what the most effective way to use the products are. This leaflet is super handy.

CONTENTS OF THE BOX

The October box came with two makeup brushes, body shimmer, a bronzer/highlighter duo, a liquid lipstick and a matching lipliner. Every product was well thought out. I loved the colour of the liquid lipstick and the lipliner. The shade was perfect for my skintone, which was fabulous. I really liked that. It indeed made me feel as though this box was especially curated with medium to dark skintones in mind. It is the perfect mauve-y nude, and the lipliner was creamy and easy to apply. Beauty Cocoon did a fantastic job with this lip combo.

I loved the brushes and the body shimmer. I wasn’t too fond of the bronzer and highlighter duo as it was not as pigmented as I thought it should have been. The highlighter had pearl undertones which I didn’t like and the bronzer was a great shade, but I needed some more pigment from the product. However, I was so impressed with the other products, I didn’t really mind about not liking the duo. These items are great additions to my makeup collection and for £21 a month, it is worth it.

Oh and I loved the fact that the box has brands that I hadn’t heard of before. This is a great way to introduce people to new brands.

OVERALL THOUGHTS

I loved this box! Love, love, loved it, and I am not just saying it to be nice! The packaging was on point and I loved the products I received (apart from one). Will I sign up for these boxes? Yes I would. I also like the fact that you can cancel anytime. Are these boxes worth it? Yes they are!
