Beauty Pie Take Two

My first experience with Beauty Pie didn't go so well (you can read about it here). Beauty Pie is basically a concept with allows you to buy high-end products at cost price. But you have to pay an additional monthly membership cost which is £10. I'm not going to lie I find the concept a little odd. But for some reason I'm really intrigued by there products. And some are really cheap. And many products have received amazing reviews. So I persevered with the concept. I have been testing loads of there products and ready to report back.

Dual Phase Cleanser* | £4.88

This is a cleansing cream that has a light creamy texture. It's formulated with 95% naturally derived ingredients that protect and nourish the skin. I actually really like this. It has a light scent and removes makeup well but I prefer this as a second cleanse, just because it feels really nice on the skin and leaves my skin feeling clean, without being stripped.

Beauty Pie Plantastic Micro Peeling Drops* | £6.67

The Micro Peeling Drops are an overnight treatment which promise to gently exfoliate skin, refine pores and leave skin looking fresh and glowing. I really like the packaging, it feels really expensive. But I don't find the product itself actually did anything. I'm really accustomed to exfoliators like this and I just have ones that work way better than this. Maybe if you're really sensitive to acids you might like this. Beauty Pie Claim the retail price of this is £50. Would I pay £50? No.

Super Pore Detox Black Clay Mask* | £5.77

Black face masks are really having their moment on social media at the moment. But this isn't a peeling one, so it's a lot more gentle on the skin. It contains Glycolic acid for exfoliation and Clay to deeply cleanse and absorb excess oils. I really like this mask. It is really deep cleaning and leaves my face instantly looking brighter, and more refined! I leave it on for 10-15 mins and it's quite easy to remove for a clay mask. The factor cost of this is £5.77 and the non factor price is £50. I do really like this but I wouldn't pay £50 just simply because I don't have the budget to spend that much on face a mask. But £5.77 for this is a great price.

Beauty Pie JeJu Overnight Super Fusion* | £12.75

This is an overnight moisturising Mask that promises to plump, hydrate and give instant moisture to the skin. I love masks like this so I was super excited by it. It has a strange solid, balm like texture. It's not fluid like regular moisturisers or masks. It does melt into the skin though. But for me this didn't feel like it was moisturising. In fact it actually felt like a moisturiser aimed at oily skins. I used this along side my regular serums and nightcare and in the morning my skin did feel hydrated. So I like this, I just don't love it. The recommended retail price of this £70. I would never spend that much on a cream like this and if I did I would be expecting a lot more from it.

Beauty Pie Super Anti Ageing Cream* | £10

Here we have an anti ageing cream that promises to lift, firm, hydrate and reduce the appearance of fine lines. The cream itself is quite light weight and absorbed really quickly. Lift and firming isn't something I need (yet) So I can't comment on that. But this wasn't hydrating enough for my dehydrated skin. The factor cost £100, no I wouldn't pay that for this.

JeJu Anti Oxidant Super Fusion Serum* | £7.75

Beauty Pie have a pretty extensive Skincare range and this serum is another offering from their line. This serum promises to add energy to the skin and make it look more alive, with it's plumping and skin perfecting properties. The serum itself has a relatively thick consistency in comparison to regular serums. It actually felt more like a primer, but not a heavy, silicone one. It left my face really soft and smooth. It makes a great base for the rest of my skincare. I really like this serum. It has become a regular in my routine.

Beauty Pie Super Healthy Skin Moisturiser | £6.37

This is an everyday moisturiser that promises to add radiance, whilst being hydrating and plumping. It also claims to be anti ageing. It's quite a thick cream but it absorbs quickly. It really hydrates my dehydrated skin! It works well at night and during the day under makeup. It's quickly become a firm favourite.

Beauty Primer Mattifying Primer* | £3.44

Now on to the makeup I've been testing. Beauty Pie have added a mattifying primer alongside the Bio Fusion (hydrating) one. This has a silicony texture with quite a bit of slip to it . It's worth noting I don't have oily skin, it's dehydrated. And in my experience this type of primer only make my skin more dehydrated so this primer isn't for me. But if you tend to like this kinds of primers you might like this.

Beauty Pie Great Skin Foundation | £4.76

This foundation I was super excited to try because it has had some great reviews. It claims to be skin perfect foundation, with a matte finish and it's formulated without oils. The coverage is a solid medium. And this does do everything it claims, it does give the skin a flawless finish, while being matte. It wears all day on me too. My issue is the shade. I went for shade 400 Buff which has quite a strong Orange undertone so it doesn't overly match me. But that aside this is a nice foundation.

Super Luminous Concealer | £2.69

I have a concealer problem so it was a no brainer that I had to try this. It has some pretty bold claims - blurring, brightening, medium to full coverage, lightweight - the list goes on. It has a firm, bull like applicator, very similar to the Milani one, which I love. This is light weight and does offer a good medium coverage. I went for the shade Light for use under the eyes. And it does a pretty good job at coverage and brightening my dark circles.

Beauty Pie Pro-glow Highlighter | £5.46

This highlighter is undeniably pretty. The marble effect of the powder had me as soon as I saw it. The powder is butter soft and applies with ease to the face. It gives a natural but noticeable seen. The shade is a Champagne colour with a Sliver tone to it. It's actually quite a unique highlighter in my collection. This is definitely one to check out.

Beauty Pie Pro Glow Superstrobing Drops | £3.68

Highlighting drops like this are really having their moment in the beauty world. But these are the first ones I've tried and I'm obsessed with them! They're multi tasking drops that can be used to highlight areas of the face, or mixed with foundation to give it a dewy, glow-y finish. I love these both ways. As a highlighter these are seriously pigmented and give the cheek bones a wet look sheen to them. But it still looks natural because the formula blends seamlessly into the skin, without messing with my foundation or other base products. I apply this straight after my foundation, before powder. Then apply powder over the top and the powder doesn't touch the sheen at all. Mixed with foundation it gives a glowy, but not sweaty finish. It only comes in one shade, which is a Champagne colour that leans slightly more Gold. But I think these are pretty universal unless you have very dark or are very pale. These are amazing. I really can't recommend them enough.

Beauty Pie Uber Volume Boost Mascara* | £1.90

This is a volumising mascara, with a classic bristle brush that is quite large. It does give lashes good volume, but not length. Which was disappointing but the formula is good. It's long wearing, and doesn't flake. If this added more length I'd really like it.

Beauty Pie Matte Lipstick | £2.44

Lastly I have a matte lipstick in the shade Cowboy Nude, which is a Mauve nude colour. I really like the shade. The formula is also really good to. It is matte, but creamy, pigmented and long lasting. I didn't find this drying either.

It's worth noting that on top of the monthly membership cost and the cost of the products themselves, Beauty Pie add a shipping and handling fee on to the total bill. Although these aren't very much they do increase the price of the product. But overall, My second experience with Beauty Pie was a lot better than the first. And I do still think they're concept is odd but for some reason I'm really intrigued by their products. Jasmine from Jasmine talks beauty made a good point that going forward we just look at the whole cost rather than breaking it down. Which from now on I will do.

Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts on Beauty Pie?

Until next time...
