I first came across Beauty Pie online and have seen them pop up on several other bloggers social media. Luxury makeup brands are notoriously expensive but with Beauty Pie you get “all your makeup without the markup”.
How Does Beauty Pie Work?
Beauty Pie is essentially a members club where you pay a monthly subscription of £10, for a minimum of three months, so that you can buy your makeup at a fraction on the cost. This means that instead of paying £20 for a lipstick you can pick one up for around £3.43. If you don’t want to join you would have to pay the full price.
“Luxury cosmetics at transparent factory costs.”
A lot of beauty brands manufacture their makeup in the same factories so Beauty Pie have cut out the middle man, including luxury packaging, which is what brings the price right down. Their website even shows you how much money has been spent on packaging, warehousing and testing. You can also see what ingredients go into making the products.
What I Bought
Beauty Pie added me as a member for 24 hours so that I could buy the products for this post. Their website is very easy to use with drop down categories taking you to each section. You can get your hands on pretty much anything from foundation and mascara to a set of brushes.
I chose two eyeshadow palettes; THE TEN BEST SMOKY EYESHADOW SHADES and THE TEN BEST NATURAL EYESHADOW SHADES which cost me £6.94 each instead of £35 each. I then selected the FUTURELIPSTICK – SATIN in Loveberry for £3.18 instead of £20. You can purchase up to the retail price of £100 (which works out at £20 Beauty Pie price) per month.
Is It Worth It?
The eyeshadow palettes feature a great range of shades that are easily blendable and buildable. I love the lipstick, it has a really moisturising formula and a long lasting colour. I often find that lipsticks will dry my lips out but this didn’t happen at all so I would definitely get another.
At the moment there aren’t a huge range of shades but I’m sure this is something Beauty Pie are working on. I think the foundation only comes in about eight different shades per formula and there are only eight matte lipsticks.
If you are someone that wears makeup everyday and tends to spend quite a bit of money each month on makeup then this would work out much cheaper for you. If you are someone like me who only really wears makeup if they’re going somewhere and rarely buys makeup (the £10 membership each month is probably more than I spend) then I would say this membership might not be for you.
