As always, they gave you Glossies the lowdown on all the need-to-know tips and tricks to make the most of your products. If you weren’t able to join them, have no fear! You can catch up and watch it again here.

For your chance to be our lucky winner and receive fabulous products from BYBI, Toni and Guy, Lavera, The Body Shop and In Homeware, enter our competition by commenting and liking our Facebook Live post.
It’s such a pleasure interacting with you all each month. We really appreciate that you take the time to join us and comment. To say thank you, I’ve gone back through your messages and I’ll be sharing your insightful comments about our ‘Empowerment’ edit.
I love that GLOSSYBOX is advocating for empowerment for all. It’s nice to have an honest company which gives you the truth about products.
All of you will have received a luscious lip crème from Bellapierre. It’s a high impact, full coverage liquid lipstick that glides on effortlessly. Personally, I just love that it dries to a gorgeous matte finish. Oh, and the colour payoff is amazing!
There were 13 different shades, we really hope you liked yours. Christina and Leeann sure did!
The colour looks gorgeous. I love the Bellapierre lippy!
I loved the lipstick in this month’s box.
You’ll also have received a 100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free plumping lip balm by BYBI. Its thick and creamy formula restores and protects dry lips, while the delicate notes of peppermint plump your pout. Soft, smooth and healthy lips await! Imogen knows what I’m talking about:
The lip plumper is the best thing ever!
This lightweight gel highlighter was a huge hit in the Glossy office, and we’re so glad you liked it too! It’s formulated with ultra-concentrated pearls and mica pigments that will give you the best glow of your life! You can either mix a few drops into your liquid foundation, or apply it straight to your skin for a natural lit-from-within look.
I love this highlighter, especially on a no makeup day. It creates such a natural highlight.
Formulated with ultrafine shimmer, this smooth and blendable highlighter provides a dewy radiance that lasts all day. Plus, it’s a convenient size to carry with you and use on the go.
I loved the dew pot. It looks so fancy and is great for travel. Plus, the shade is stunning!
All of you lovely Glossies will also have been treated to a primer or fixing spray by essence. Whichever one you received, it will help create a perfect matte base, preventing your makeup up from slipping no matter what the day throws your way.
I work in a school kitchen and thanks to this fixing spray my makeup still looks amazing when I’m finished. It also looks good after I’ve been to the gym. It’s wicked.

Some of you will have received one of three super-rich and creamy body butters. They just melt straight into your skin. I’m obsessed with the shea butter one (it smells divine!), while we love the Argan Oil and Coconut scents too. Either way, they all soften, nourish and hydrate your skin. Milly agrees:
Loved the body butter from the body shop!
Mostly though, we just love that The Body Shop actively works to empower women in Ghana. Find out more about how they’re putting a She in every Shea.
This is another all-natural product! Blending nourishing shea butter and almond, this multi-purpose cream protects, softens and smoothes your skin. You can apply it to both your face and body. It’s suitable for all skin types, don’t worry!
I need a hydrating cream for my elbows and feet.
@Emma Louise Evans
Luckily for Emma and all you Glossies, this cream is particularly effective on very dry areas, including elbows, ankles, knees and feet.
A lucky few will have been treated to a Toni&Guy hair perfume – either the illuminating one, or the radiant rose one. Some of you have asked whether this perfume will make your hair greasy.
I’d love to try it, but I wouldn’t want it to make my hair look greasy. Has anyone tried it?
I’ve been using it to give my hair an extra boost of freshness at the end of the day. Don’t worry about it making your hair greasy! As long as you spray it 30cm from your hair and shake well before use, it shouldn’t have that effect.
You may also have received an anti-ageing mask. It’s honestly amazing! In just 15 minutes, it delivers the same smoothing effect as a 30ml bottle of concentrated anti-ageing serum. Those wrinkles and fine lines? Gone! As Michelle put it:
Who doesn’t love a good face mask?!
