When I first stumbled across this luxury beauty buyers club selling high end skincare and beauty products at budget prices, I thought it sounded too good to be true, but I’ve been using Beauty Pie for around 6 months now and I’m here to tell you, it is a game changer
Maybe you’ve already heard the buzz around Beauty Pie but like me thought it was some sort of scam, or you’re reading this thinking “beauty what?”
Well, let me explain.
Beauty Pie buys directly from the same leading cosmetic and skincare labs which produce products for high end luxury brands and sells direct to their members without the high end mark up.
Your membership gives you a spending limit based on “typical prices” and you can shop up to your spending limit but at check out you pay the membership price. The typical price is what you would pay if you purchased from a luxury brand.
For example, the Everyday Great Skin Foundation has a typical price of £30, which is deducted from your spending limit, but at check out you pay the membership price, which is £6.81.
Why the price difference? Because luxury brands have to add on the cost of their celebrity marketing, their store placements, etc. which really adds up, hence the higher price of their products.
If you don’t use up all your spending limit one month or you just don’t want to buy anything, your spending limit rolls over, giving you more to spend next month! This is a great for in the lead up to Christmas if you want to buy lots of things for your friends and family.

Now that I’ve explained what Beauty Pie is, it’s time to talk products! Here are a few of my favourites I’ve purchased so far and a special offer just for you for when you make your first purchase…
Super Retinol Anti-Ageing range
Recently I saw a meme that said if you used to take a digital camera on a night out then it’s time to start using anti ageing products, and ever since I’ve been looking for ones with Retinol (the latest buzzword in the skincare world) that’ll help turn back time.
I first heard about the Retinol Anti-Ageing range when I saw the hand cream on an IGTV Beauty Pie round up by @AnnaElriHart. She said that after two weeks of use she felt like her hands had been photo shopped. I’m a hand cream addict so thought I’d give it a try and whilst I’m not 100% sure I’m seeing a massive difference age wise, the added shea butter makes my hands feel very soft, so I’m going to stick with it for now.
Next up was the Ceramide-Boost Anti-Ageing Face Serum. I’ve read that when you first start using Retinol on your face you should start with once a week and slowly increase. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and it feels lovely to apply but I think it might be too early to see much of a difference. I’ll keep it up though and maybe do an update in a few more weeks.
Finally the Anti Wrinkle Eye Cream. This one feels rather thick and creamy and has kind of an odd scent but my under eye area does feel more hydrated as a result. Ever since I got sun damage around my eyes in Australia, I’ve been very paranoid about wrinkles especially when I smile so I have high hopes for this one.
Super Healthy Skin Deluxe Moisture Body Creme
I LOVE this body creme. It feels thick and luxurious and has a delightful citrus scent. I was a little dubious about the price, £13.01, but it’s a really big tub and a little goes a long way.
Super Brow Fine Precision Pencil
I used to use the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil but it’s just so expensive, so I’ve been looking for an alternative for a while. This Beauty Pie version caught my eye as it has a spoolie on the end for blending and you twist the product up from the tube just like the Benefit one so there’s no need for a sharpener. Plus, it only costs £3.43! It works really well and I’ve even repurchased.
One Powder Wonder
I read in a blog post that the One Powder Wonder was a dupe for the Nars Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder so I was very excited to try it out and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. It keeps my makeup in place, even around my nose which is where my skin tends to be oily, and my skin looks luminous all day long and for £5.28 you really can’t go wrong!
Perfect Pocket Eye Shadow in Beautiful Neutrals
This palette looks very similar to the ones by Channel, from the colours to the actually shape of the powders in the palette. All the shadows are fairly light and have a shimmery finish, which look lovely during the day time but might not be for everyone’s taste.
Pomegranate and Baies Rose Scented Candle
This candle was amazing! The smell was really strong, but not overwhelming and lingered long after it was blown out. It’s burnt out now and I’m using the empty container to store cotton pads in my bathroom. I’ve heard good things about the Bitter Orange and Blackcurrant candle so I’ll definitely be adding it to my next order. And to any of my friends reading this, there is a 90% chance you will be getting one of these for Christmas!
Volume Boost Mascara
This was a freebie I got with my first order and after a quick online search I discovered that the Beauty Pie mascaras are dupes for Eyeko. I’ve used it a few times and it seems alright. A bit clumpy, which I always find with a new mascara, but does make an impact on my lashes so can’t complain too much, especially as it was free.
So, those are my Beauty Pie recommendations. If you’d like to give Beauty Pie a try, click this link here and you’ll get a bonus £100 spending credit on your first order!
