I recently stumbled upon Beauty Pie and my life has been forever changed.
Have you heard of this yet? Beauty Pie has been talked about in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour and Cosmopolitan. Grab a cuppa sister and read on, because what I am about to share with you is the most innovative business idea ever to hit the cosmetic industry and you need to know about it.
We all know in the deepest recesses of our minds, the fact that cosmetic laboratories around the world formulate the same products for multiple brands. It stings, doesn’t it? The fact that the high-end foundation that you just spent a week’s worth of grocery money on, may end up on the shelf of your local drugstore, under a different name with new packaging. The pain is real- and It HURTS me. Way down deep in my pocketbook.
Enter: Beauty Pie: “A Buyers Club For Beauty Addicts”.
Beauty Pie is the brain child of Marcia Kilgore, the woman behind Bliss, Soap & Glory, FitFlop and Soaper Duper. She’s a sought after Hollywood facialist turned savvy beauty entrepreneur. This is a beauty guru who knows her stuff. Most of what she touches turns to gold in the cosmetic industry, and this new way of selling luxury cosmetics is completely revolutionary.
The concept is extremely simple for us Americans to wrap our brains around because we all belong to Costco or some other buyers club, to help us pay less for our everyday items.
Beauty Pie is sourcing luxury formulas from the best factories around the world and then packaging them in their own minimalist, chic packaging.
They cut out the middleman and give you complete transparency in pricing.
For instance, my high-end, anti-aging moisturizer made in Switzerland, which would typically run me $165.00 cost me a grand total of $10.67.
That is not a typo, ladies.
I’ve been using the anti-aging cream twice a day for about a week and it definitely compares with other Swiss luxury brands.
It’s formulated with hyaluronic acid, collagen precursors, face sculpting proteins, and antioxidants as well as pollution blockers, free radical battlers, stem cell re-energizers and plant actives.
Whats IN the formulation is just as impressive as whats NOT in it. No Sulphates, Phthalates, Parabens, Mineral oil, Benzophenone, Cocoamide DEA, Polyethylene, Formaldehyde, Triclosan, Methylisothiazolinone (MIT), Cyclodimethicone (D5), Animal derivatives, Polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB).
You can find the formula comparisons with a bit of googling if you care to. For instance, the Everyday Great Skin Foundation is basically the exact same as Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. The cost from Beauty Pie- $5.90 vs. the Armani on Sephora- $64. I KNOW, right??? Where have you been all my life!
And hey- if it’s good enough for Bobbi Brown– it’s good enough for me you know what I’m sayin’? She recently told “Racked”: “… I think the new Beauty Pie is quite interesting and the products are actually really good.” In addition, UK beauty expert India Knight wrote: “The USP with Beauty Pie is that these are really top-class products…the brand is nailing it with skincare.”
How Beauty Pie Works:
M. Kilgore works with the chemists and manufacturers behind luxury brands and has them create formulas for Beauty Pie. They source from the best luxury suppliers in Italy, Germany, France, Switzerland, Spain, USA, UK, Korea and Japan.
*You join the membership for $10 per month.
*You can shop for up to $100 worth of luxury skincare and makeup each month.
*You pay only the actual factory cost prices plus shipping and handling.
Beauty Pie Packaging
If I’m being honest, I’ll have to admit to buying beauty products more than once based solely on the pretty packaging. I wondered if Beauty Pie would leave me feeling like I was carrying around a fake Chanel handbag. I mean sure- I love to save a buck but what about the FEEL of opening the beautiful packaging. Let’s face it, there’s something so luxurious about having a beautiful ornate lipstick case rolling around in your handbag.
Would Beauty Pie crush my soul with sad, boring packaging?
I was pleasantly surprised when my order arrived from Europe in less than two weeks.
The thoughtful packaging has a minimalist look but is still sleek and feminine. The packaging of most cosmetics costs WAY more than the actual product and most of that isn’t recyclable and will end up in landfills. So thank you Beauty Pie for producing these formulations in packaging that is recyclable as well as aesthetically pleasing.
My honest opinion is that I am as excited as can be with this new way of selling cosmetics and skin care directly to the consumer. The products I’ve used are definitely comparable to luxury brands. The number of products available is growing each month. I think this will definitely be a business to watch.
I think this will definitely be a business to watch. It’s new, it’s daring and it definitely appeals to my inner beauty junkie. I can’t wait to place another order next month.
