Back in September, I shared my first Beauty Pie haul after subscribing to see what the service and products were truly like. I know October is nearly finished, but I still wanted to share my Beauty Pie Haul October 2020 with you so you could see which products I chose.
One of the reasons I subscribed to Beauty Pie, was to see what the service was like as a paying customer. I myself have received Beauty Pie products as PR samples in the past, but there’s so many gifted reviews I was curious to see what it’d be like for a standard customer, having to pay monthly and then pay for products on top.
Beauty Pie Haul October 2020
If you’re new to the whole Beauty Pie concept, I went into greater detail right here, but it’s essentially a beauty brand that has cheaper prices for those that pay a monthly subscription fee. You can still purchase their products without subscribing, but the prices are considerably higher.
November will be my third month of my subscription, and you’re not allowed to cancel the subscription unless you’ve been subscribed for three months. I have to be honest, I don’t know if I will continue my subscription past the three months. I’ll explain why once I’ve shown you what I chose within my Beauty Pie Haul October 2020…
The first product I bought within my Beauty Pie Haul October 2020 is a product I’ve seen all over social media recently. It’s the Beauty Pie Soul Providers Relaxing Shower Oil 100ml £40 (Beauty Pie customer price £9.09). I love a good shower oil, and this one contains Essential Oils of Lavender, Lemon, Bitter Orange, Star Anise and Peppermint, Argan Oil, Ashwagandha Extract (that’s Indian Ginseng), Grapeseed and Evening Primrose Oils and vitamin E.
It smells like hot Ribena, which I know sounds really strange but it’s like a sweet blackcurrant scent which I can’t say I love. I thought it would have an aromatherapy type scent like the amazing Aromatherapy Associates Bath & Shower Oils which fill the bathroom with an intense, therapeutic scent but this one isn’t like that at all. I will do a proper full review once I’ve used it a few more times, but £40 ‘full price’ is crazy for this.
Next in my Beauty Pie Haul October 2020 is a product I am excited about trying, and it’s the Beauty Pie Triple Beauty Good Lighting Luminous Trio £35 (Beauty Pie customer price £9.58). Beauty Pie are very clearly trying to imitate the iconic Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders with this trio, and it features three domed blushers and highlighter. It’s a lot smaller than I anticipated, the powders are miniscule with only 1 gram of product which is very little product.
I’ve tried a couple of the Beauty Pie lip products before, so I knew I’d enjoy the Beauty Pie Futurelipstick Luxe Shine Lipstick £25 (Beauty Pie customer price £7.43). These lipsticks have nine different shades, and I chose the shade Nude Blush as I love a good rosy nude shade. This lipstick formula reminds me of the Revlon Lip Butters which used to be £8, so if you miss those, and you’re a customer, I think the £7.43 price is fair.
Finally in my Beauty Pie Haul October 2020 is an eye product, and it’s the Beauty Pie Wondercolour Longwear Cream Eyeshadow Stick £22 (Beauty Pie customer price £5.27). I featured another one of these sticks in my September haul, so that hopefully shows you how much I like the formula.
I can absolutely say that the formula of these eyeshadow sticks are just as good, if not identical to the Bobbi Brown eyeshadow sticks, and for £5.27 they’re amazing. This shade is Velveteena, and the shade I bought last month is Wild Violet, and I’ll review them both very soon.
So that’s the entirety of my Beauty Pie haul October 2020. I’ve got lots of Beauty Pie reviews coming your way over the next few weeks / months, and after trying their skincare, makeup and bodycare, I can definitely say their makeup is their best range in my opinion.
I will place an order in November, because I’m going to paying for the subscription fee but as I mentioned at the start of the post, I’m not sure I’ll continue the subscription. The discounted prices are great, and most of the products are great, but especially at this time of year when there’s lots of great discounts, sales and offers, I feel like I’d rather use the money to buy different products and different brands, rather than having to spend the money on just one brand.
It could also be because I’m a blogger, and I don’t want to flood my blog with Beauty Pie reviews, but the elevated ‘full prices’ are not indicative of quality. The shower oil is the perfect example of that. There’s no way it’s worth £40, but it’s all down to preference. If you love the products, the monthly fee might be worth it but my biggest issue has to be the price of the new products they’ve been launching.
Nearly all of their new launches are £50 to £90 ‘full price’ and you have to remember, that your monthly subscription fee gives you a ‘spending limit’ which is based on the products full prices. By Beauty Pie launching mainly just expensive products now, it means you might now only be able to buy one or two products each month depending on your spending limit.
I do have to say, I have been really impressed with the customer service aspect of Beauty Pie. The site is easy to use, deliveries come very quickly and I had to reach out to their customer service team with an issue I had, and they couldn’t have been more helpful. There’s nothing worse when a beauty brand has an awful customer service team, but the Beauty Pie subscription and ordering process is flawless, and I’ll be starting my Beauty Pie reviews very soon.
