I Tried £450 Worth Of Beauty Pie Products. Here Are My Honest Thoughts

From Glossybox to FabFitFun, subscription services are a seriously smart way for beauty obsessives to get a taste for shiny new brands and products. But it's fair to say that nothing has piqued our interest quite like luxury beauty concept, Beauty Pie.

What is Beauty Pie?

Beauty Pie is a beauty membership service which boasts skincare, haircare, makeup and body care products under the Beauty Pie brand. The products are luxury (sourced from 20 leading laboratories, which also produce formulas for big-name designer beauty brands) but are sold at a considerably lower price when you sign up. Up to 85% off, in fact.

How does Beauty Pie work?

There are different levels of membership, starting from £5 per month (ideal for those who just want to try a couple of products) to £50 a month for beauty lovers who want to give multiple products a go. Unlike beauty subscription boxes, you get to choose your own products. Each membership does have a spending limit but there's a handy bar on site which will help you shop without going over budget. Should you change your mind, cancellations are possible, but memberships have a three-month minimum. You can cancel after 14 days if you don't have an order pending.

What are the best Beauty Pie products?

All products are high quality at Beauty Pie but beauty editors, influencers and shoppers almost always gravitate to skincare, thanks to transformative ingredients such as vitamin C, retinol and hyaluronic acid. That said, the choice is pretty endless. Click through to discover some of the best beauty products from Beauty Pie and how to shop them without the price hike.

If you like CeraVe's Hydrating Cleanser but want something that removes makeup in one go, choose this. The thick, creamy consistency transforms into a milky slip on contact with water and removes even the heaviest of foundation and mascara. You can't go wrong for just under £7.

Beauty Pie Japanfusion Pure Transforming Cleanser, $25.00 Buy
Officially my new favourite eye cream, this has a really luxe, balm-gel texture that absorbs in seconds and leaves the delicate skin around the eyes feeling supple and moisturised. It claims to improve the appearance of dark circles, too, but while I haven't noticed a reduction (and dermatologists argue that it's unlikely an eye cream can actually do this), it's a great hydrator.

Beauty Pie Qi Energy Ginseng Root & Ginger Brightening Eye Fix, $40.00 Buy
If you prefer subtle makeup, this balm-lipstick hybrid imparts a really sheer wash of colour and nourishes lips deeply. While it isn't as highly pigmented as other lipsticks available at Beauty Pie, it's good for on-the-go touch-ups.

Beauty Pie Futurelipstick Luxe Shine, $25.00 Buy
This serum feels so silky on the skin, as opposed to sticky. Hyaluronic acid hydrates deeply and plumps out fine lines, while the addition of ceramides helps repair the skin barrier, keeping dryness and irritation at bay. You can follow with moisturiser but it really is nourishing enough to use on its own.

Spritzed through towel-dried lengths before blow-drying or straightening, this heat protector spray made my hair feel soft and shiny. It helps prevent dry, split ends over time and makes for a great refresh in between hair washing and styling.

There is a handful of eyeshadow palettes to choose from on the site which include warm and cool neutral hues in mattes and shimmers to suit all skin tones and preferences. The intense pigments and staying power are impressive and remind me of Urban Decay's cult Naked collection.

Beauty Pie Perfect Warm Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette, $35.00 Buy
This feels like a spa treatment, smells incredible and leaves arms and legs feeling so smooth, you can skip the body lotion. It's packed with essential oils, though, so if your skin is sensitive or prone to dry patches, it might not be best for you.

Skincare capsules or ampoules give often unstable ingredients like vitamin C a protective armour against the environment, helping to prolong potency. These boast brightening vitamin C and vitamin E, both of which shield against dulling pollution. The texture feels a little thicker than your typical vitamin C serum thanks to dimethicone (a type of silicone). But skin feels smooth and appears more even in tone over time. Follow with a lightweight SPF 50 and you're good to go in the morning.

I loved the subtle, fresh smell of this shampoo. Sulphate-free, it cleanses from root to tip without stripping colour or moisture but if you're prone to an overly oily scalp or dandruff (both totally normal, by the way), it might not cut it, as it's super gentle.

This is perfect for fine, straighter hair types. While it moisturises and smooths without feeling weighty or greasy, those with thicker hair prone to frizz will do better with something like OUAI Thick Hair Conditioner.

A sleep mask is essentially a heavier, more intense moisturiser. This one delivers on its promise of more moisture thanks to squalane and glycerin, which attract water and trap it in the skin. My skin wasn't transformed but it did feel plump and soft after one use.
