This August, we’re celebrating Pride with another special design box that’s filled with 6 full-size products (worth over £58), 4 of which are makeup!

Whoever you are, we want to celebrate everyone’s individuality so we’ve curated a Pride themed box of multi-use products that are tailored to help you feel empowered, bold and unique.

Why is Pride important to us?

We’re a GLOSSY community that stands together against discrimination and completely embraces individuality. 2018 marks the 50-year anniversary since the decriminalisation of homosexuality and we are very proud to be able to deliver this very special edition.

The definitive symbol of Pride, the rainbow flag emblazoned onto this month's box has a deep meaning: red represents life, orange is for healing, yellow is for sunlight, green is for nature, blue is for harmony and purple is for spirit.

We are delighted to be supporting the LGBT Foundation this month with a big fundraising event alongside a number of awareness articles. Beauty Unboxed will also feature many articles on Pride, the characters and the music, which have characterised the LGBT community over the last 40 to 50 years.

What’s in your Pride GLOSSYBOX?

Our picks for this August are fun and fearless. We promote vibrancy, love and liberty in our international Glossy community. So Glossies, let’s let our hair down #LoveIsLove

A cruelty-free first sneak peek

Express yourself with an intense, cruelty-freeeyeshadow from a brand that encourages diversity and self-expression through makeup. Our resident makeup artist Lucinka has created an amazing tutorial to show you the different ways you can use this product - so don't worry you can be as subtle or as bold as you want to!

Get a glow with our second sneak peek

We are also treating you to a highlighter that's long-lasting, creamy and will get all of you gleaming and glowing. Lucinka has also created a step by step tutorial on how to get the perfect glow using this sneak peek product.

Secret style pampering

We are also going to be pampering in true angel style with a product from a well known brand who has a new range for 2018. It will help you to prep your skin and make it selfie ready.

You will have to wait for the reveal of the next 3 products in your Pride special design box. In the meantime...

I am always searching for future trends - beauty, fashion, hair, you name it! I’ve tried every foundation under the sun and love trying up-and-coming makeup brands to compare them with the big names. Variety is the spice of life and my makeup bag is definitely wide-ranging.
