Beauty Pie is a deal that sounds too good to be true; professional quality, high-end beauty products, sold for a fraction of their regular price. But get pinching, because this dream is actually a reality – and all you need to do to access these bargains is pay a £10 monthly membership fee.
It’s worth the investment: the discounts are significant (think £5 instead of £50), and the products excellent quality, receiving rave reviews across the board. The genius of Beauty Pie’s set-up lies in its simplicity: ‘We source the best luxury makeup and skincare from the world’s leading laboratories, and sell it directly to our members, without the mumbo jumbo, the middlemen, or the markups,’ they explain. Mark ups on luxury beauty often reach as much as 85% – Beauty Pie instead puts simple packaging and factory pricing on their offering, which is comes from 20 of the world’s leading beauty labs.
From lip liners to luminous highlighters, there’s a vast array of make-up, skincare, tools and even candles to try – so we asked the brand’s founder, Marcia Kilgore, to give us the low-down on Beauty Pie’s bestsellers, and why she thinks they’ve proved so popular.
