Beauty Pie | Review

Sunday, 19 February 2017













There is an ever growing love for subscription boxes across all categories and the beauty category is no different, but I hadn't got round to trying any beauty subscriptions until now. Beauty Pie is a subscription service whereby you pay £10 a month to be a member and this then entitles you to premium make up at a discounted price, all of which are Beauty Pie own brand products. You have a monthly allowance of £100 (this is based on items at their full price, but you pay a lot less as a member) allowing you to try a large selection of products so there's always something you'll need. My friend has a membership with them, but wasn't going to use her monthly allowance for February, so offered me the chance to try some of the products from Beauty Pie and I obviously couldn't resist!

So what did I buy?

1./ The Ten Best Natural Eyeshadow Shades Palette
This was the first thing I saw on the Beauty Pie website and it was released just at the time I was looking to make my purchases. I'm a sucker for natural eyeshadow palettes and you can never have too many right? So I knew I had to get it. They also have a smokey eye shadow palette, but I didn't think I would use it as much as this one. Whilst I love the colours in the palette, they're not the most pigmented so they're ideal for an everyday work eye look, but I will probably still reach for my Urban Decay Naked palettes for weekends / days out.

2./Uber Curl Drama Mascara
I was in need of a new mascara for work, so I was keen to give one from Beauty Pie a try. I loved the sound of the 'Uber Curl Drama' and whilst there are a few mascaras to choose from, I decided this one would probably suit my needs the most. I must admit, I really do like the mascara, it curls my lashes well and provides a good amount of volume without being too thick or clumpy. I've been wearing this for work and have been loving it.

3./One Powder Wonder
I've been wanting to try a setting powder for a while and had been looking at one from MAC, however, when I saw this one on Beauty Pie I was eager to give it a try. I think this is my favourite product I ordered from Beauty Pie, the consistency of the powder is really soft and it applies really easily to the skin. I have noticed a considerable improvement in my make up staying in place when I've used it. I'm definitely enjoying adding this into my everyday make up routine.

4./FutureLipstick - Matte in Cowboy Nude
I always find buying lipsticks online really difficult because it's not always easy to judge what the shade is like. However, my friend had told me how good the lipsticks from Beauty Pie were so I was keen to give one a try. When this arrived, I was a little concerned that the shade would be too brown and too dark for me. However, once I tried it, I immediately fell in love. It's not as pigmented as I first thought, which actually works in my favour as it's more of a nude colour once applied, which is definitely more the colour I was after and would really recommend giving this a try.

Would I buy from Beauty Pie again?
Yes, definitely. I have been really impressed with the products and particularly the value for money. You get really premium make up, for a fraction of the price of other premium brands. Also, the order comes beautifully wrapped, so it feels as though Beauty Pie have really taken the effort to ensure your products arrive safely and with a more personal touch. Many subscription services don't give you the option to select which products you receive or if they do, the choice is often very limited. However, this isn't the case with Beauty Pie, you can select what ever products you like and there's a huge range to choose from. If you're looking to try a subscription service that you have control over, I'd really recommend Beauty Pie.

Have you tried any Beauty Pie products or other beauty subscription boxes?

  1. I'm yet to try any beauty subscription boxes but I've been so tempted on a number of occasions! So far, I have restrained myself and not bought anything. I will one day! These look wonderful! x
