Beauty Pie is such a great way to treat yourself to goodies without spending too much – the products are easily comparable to luxury brands, but the price point is much, much more purse-friendly, so in the current times, Beauty Pie has become my obsession and I love seeing what’s new from the brand. As soon as I became aware of them, I picked up the Supercheek Cream Blushers (weighty packaging, beautifully bouncy blushers – full review here) and I’ve also reviewed the fantastically well-packaged Eye Moisture Serum (full review here) but I thought I’d share with you what else I picked up.
It feels kind of ridiculous buying make-up at the mo, since I think I’ve put on a full face of make-up a handful of times this year, but for me, it’s the anticipation of what the make-up will be like when I eventually get to use it, plus I get to feature it on here, so I’ve got plenty of excuses! Weirdly, I could’ve sworn I purchased the Cool Neutrals Palette, but apparently I went for the Ten Best Matte palette, which is far from ideal considering I already have it – not sure how that happened but there we go!
The next makeup item I went for is the Shimmerbar in shade Lumineer (£8.77) which is described as “a cool, dewy, luminous glow” and that’s basically all I need to convince me, since I’m a sucker for anything cool-toned. Is it any good? No idea! I’ve not used it yet beyond swatching it but I have used another one in a different shade and it’s a really good product; a great alternative to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick.
I was hugely impressed with Beauty Pie hair care (check out my detailed post here) but when I ordered the aforementioned batch, they were out of stock of the Super Healthy Hair Elastic-Repair Treatment (£4.78) which is a really good product. I thought it was going to be an alternative to my beloved Philip Kingsley Elasticizer (mostly because of what they named it…) and whilst this is a very similar consistency, it’s designed to go at the end of your hair wash (Elasticizer is used at the beginning, before you shampoo) and what’s especially interesting about this is that you shampoo, condition and then use this, rather than replacing your conditioner with it. It’s very hydrating and makes skin feel smooth and bouncy.
I’ve been intending to purchase the Triple Hyaluronic Acid & Lipopeptide Serum (£14.97) for ages, because my skin needs an HA serum – especially as a buffer when I’m Retinoling – so I wanted to give this a go as it’s cheaper than my favourite Alpha-H one. My skin is breakout central at the mo so I can’t say for sure if this is a spot-causer or not, but I do really like it so far and I will update with a full review soon.
The Oxygen Instant Facial Refuelling Mask (£15.49) was the most expensive of my purchases, but I really liked the sound of it: it’s a mix of Vitamin A and Salicylic Acid so it’s my sort of concoction. I have only tried it once (so far, so good) so I will report back when I’ve used it more.
