FAQ MEMBERSHIP What do I get for my money?

Having a BEAUTY PIE membership is like having a backstage pass to shop straight-off-the-manufacturing-line from not one or two, but a multitude of world-class cosmetic manufacturers. BEAUTY PIE allows our members to get the hottest new (and bestselling classic!) cosmetic formulations – which arrive in our warehouse in waves – at the actual and fantastically affordable Members Price.

Is a BEAUTY PIE membership a subscription?

No. A BEAUTY PIE membership is NOT A SUBSCRIPTION. We’re like a BUYERS CLUB FOR BEAUTY PRODUCT ADDICTS. We won’t send you anything (maybe just a few emails) until you order from us. You can choose exactly what you want, and when you want it, within the parameters of your membership and your available spending limit.

Do you send out products every month?

No. BEAUTY PIE will only send you products when you place an order with us. If you don’t order anything, your monthly spending limit just rolls over and accrues until you feel like shopping. You will only lose your spending limit when you cancel your membership.

Do I get to choose my products?

Yes. BEAUTY PIE is just like any other beauty brand. If you want a new lip-gloss and a bronzer for your upcoming holiday in Bali, go for it! Want to order your best friend the perfect eye-shadow palette? No problem. Simply need an amazing new mascara? Absolutely fine with us.

Are there any restrictions?

Yes, there are. Every BEAUTY PIE membership comes with a clearly stated monthly spending limit which caps how much in Typical Price value you can buy at Members Price each month. (Any unused spending limit rolls over and piles up, so you still have it as long as you’re an active member.) We may also restrict the multiple of the same product that each member can buy, if stocks are limited, to give all of our members a chance to get their hands on hot new items!
Member’s monthly spending limits are in place to ensure that:
- when new products arrive, all BEAUTY PIE members get an equal opportunity to buy from the PIE.
- we have a good balance of inventory in our warehouse, of new products, member favorites, bestsellers, limited editions and ‘giftables’, so you can get the most out of your membership.

What is my spending limit?

As a BEAUTY PIE member, you can buy up to your spending limit (in Typical Price value) worth of products every month, but you pay the totally transparent Members Prices. If you’re not a maths whiz and you want to see how this works, just add some items into your shopping bag and you’ll see your spending limit changing at the bottom of your shopping bag. It’s easy to see how much you’ll save.

Why do I have an spending limit?

Don't forget, BEAUTY PIE is like the buyer's club for BEAUTY ADDICTS. You pay for access to our transparent MEMBERS PRICES, no mumbo jumbo, no middlemen. As a business, we have to pay for inventory, technology, people, product developers, creative and everything else that comes along with overheads. So yes, monthly spending limits have been calculated and limited based on what will make BEAUTY PIE viable, but even when you add membership fees and shipping, you’ll be saving a bundle! We trust you'll see the benefit of BEAUTY PIE membership on your bottom line. If membership doesn’t make sense for you, we’d love you to still shop, even without signing up, like you do everywhere else. Because BEAUTY PIE MAKEUP is magnificent!

I have a monthly/ annual membership. What happens if I buy less than my monthly spending limit?

Any spending limit not spent in one month will simply roll over to the next, as long as your membership is still active. So if your spending limit is $100 but you only spend $60, your next month’s spending limit balance will increase to $140. If you cancel your membership, however, you forfeit any unused spending limit. Don’t forget about your friends: BEAUTY PIE products make great gifts!

PREFER A BIT OF A SPLURGE? Don’t worry, any unused monthly spending limit just adds up. As long as your membership is still active, you can use it to shop whenever you want, for yourself or for somebody else. If you cancel your membership, however, you forfeit any unused spending limit!

Can I buy more in value than my spending limit?

If you’d like to have more spending limit every month, you have the option to UPGRADE. Upgrades can be added to your account at any time. To upgrade go to the spending limit bar at the bottom of your page and click "Upgrade your spending limit".

How and when do I pay for membership?

Simply add the type of BEAUTY PIE membership you want; choose from MONTHLY (with a 3 month minimum) or commit for a year.
You can buy a membership on its own or with your first monthly shop of BEAUTY PIE products (which – if a membership is in your bag – will automatically appear at their transparent Members Price).
Active memberships automatically renew at the end of their terms (whether monthly or prepaid for a year) at 03:30 GMT and you can opt out at any time after our 3 month minimum.

How do I cancel my membership?

You may cancel a newly-purchased membership at any time, without having to give a reason, within 14 days of the day after you purchased the membership. If you have not yet placed any orders for Products using your membership, you will be refunded the full cost of your membership. If you have placed orders for Products using your membership, we reserve the right to deduct from your refund the reasonable cost of providing the membership to you, which is calculated as the Typical Price (i.e. non-member price) of the Products you ordered, minus the Members Price you paid for them. If you wish to cancel a membership, please contact our Customer Services Department on US: 866-329-9580 (Toll free) or via email on customer.service@beautypie.com. You can also contact the Customer Services Department by post at: Beauty Pie Limited, Customer Service Department, The Point, 210 New Kings Road, London SW6 5NZ, United Kingdom. Please quote your order number in all correspondence.

Can I use my remaining spending limit once my membership has been cancelled?

Please be aware that in cancelling your membership with us, all remaining spending limit is consequently eliminated. Consider using up your spending limit before cancelling as it may not be accessed afterward.


We’re a team of beauty-product obsessives (except maybe for the guys on the back-of-house op/IT/finance teams who tend to ‘lean out’ when we’re discussing the marvels of each of our mascara brushes), all with many years of cosmetic industry experience, all who LOVE to buy the latest/most luxurious cosmetics as soon as they launch (like you, right?), but balk at the layers of cost added in to the typical price of a luxury lipstick, or the world’s best bronzers, or what can be even sillier – high-tech active ingredient skincare.
With our skill sets combined (we’ve got world-class people in sourcing, packaging, testing, copywriting, design, tech, and product development), we realized we could bring luxury formula cosmetics and skincare to all the girls out there that are just like us, without the multiple layers of added cost. With enough like-minded girls in our club (think of BEAUTY PIE as a buyers club for beauty addicts!) we can all do what we love (source some of the best skincare and cosmetics from around the world) without the stress of third-party distribution deals or hitting high-pressure daily sales targets at department stores. And, by having membership fees to pay our salaries, we can lose the luxury level added price that is typically built-in to pay the middlemen.


There isn’t one. We pull together the collective buying power of thousands of discerning makeup junkies to cut out the middlemen. (We do have a minimum 3 month membership, if you call that a ‘catch’.) Soon you’ll be able to shop at our totally transparent Members Price not only for cosmetics, but high-tech skincare, makeup brushes, beauty tools, you name it!

Can I buy BEAUTY PIE products without a membership?

Be our guest, but you might want to put a few bags together and look at the bottom line before you decide. Being a BEAUTY PIE member is like having a virtual backstage pass into some of the best skincare and makeup manufacturers in the world. Why wouldn’t you want to buy the latest luxury cosmetics at their totally transparent Members Prices?

PRICING Why can I see two prices for each product?

Each BEAUTY PIE product has two price options: a TYPICAL PRICE, which is what you’d normally pay in an online or offline luxury beauty retailer, and a MEMBER’S PRICE, for those who’ve joined us as a contributing member.

Click here if you’d like more information about how we set our TYPICAL PRICES.

What is the Typical Price?

Beauty Pie products are produced to our unique specifications (the combination of packaging and product). Our TYPICAL PRICES are what you would typically pay at a retailer (online or offline) for a luxury product of similar quality, efficacy and size/weight.

Our TYPICAL PRICE is also the price we usually charge to customers shopping at BEAUTY PIE without a membership.

Click here if you’d like more information about how we set our TYPICAL PRICES.

How do you calculate the Typical (non-member) Price of your products?

Beauty Pie products are produced to our unique specifications (the combination of packaging and product). Our TYPICAL PRICES are what you would typically pay at a retailer (online or offline) for a luxury product of similar quality, efficacy and size/weight.

You should know that TYPICAL PRICES (online or at retail) on luxury cosmetic items can be up to 10X the actual cost of the finished product, fully packaged, boxed, and ready for sale (so you could pay $20 for something that costs $2 to make). Typical prices for luxury skincare can be even higher. (So you might pay between $100-$200 for something that cost $10 for a laboratory to make.) Of course, brands can determine and apply any mark-up they want.

To ensure our TYPICAL prices are right, we look at factors including formulation, packaging, ingredients, uses, claims and product size. We check competitors pricing in a variety of well-known online and offline retailers. We also account for taxes and delivery charges. And we repeat this exercise for every one of our products at least once every year.

Don’t forget, finish and ingredients can vary. For example, unlike some mainstream luxury brands, we keep our packaging high quality but minimal - because we believe that you shouldn’t be paying more for layers that end up in landfill. Retail prices can vary, so we encourage you to compare before you shop - just to see how valuable a BEAUTY PIE membership is.

What is the Members Price?

Our MEMBERS PRICE is the actual cost to us of the product, delivered into a BEAUTY PIE warehouse, straight from a supplier, plus the cost to us of warehousing, safety and testing (this is outlined on the Price Transparency tab of each product’s detail page). It does not include the cost of your membership.

An example of our transparent pricing breakdown is shown below for our Swiss-formulated Plantastic Micropeeling Super Drops:

How can you offer products at such low prices

We’re hoping that BEAUTY PIE membership fees will eventually pay our salaries and expenses, leaving us to focus on finding and sourcing great quality cosmetics - and soon-to-launch skincare - from leading suppliers around the globe, and bringing them direct to our members without the layers of middlemen!

What is cost transparency?

At BEAUTY PIE, we transparently unpack the Members Price of every product in our collection, so our customers can see exactly what we’ve spent, and what’s being passed along to them when they buy from BEAUTY PIE. That’s what we call Cost Transparency. You’ll see a cost transparency outline for each of our products on its detail page (you’re not just getting a bigger piece of the pie, you can see how much each of the pieces cost) and if you’re curious, there is an information page about BEAUTY PIE product Cost Transparency here.

Why does the Members Price of an item change from time to time?

The current Members Price of any BEAUTY PIE product is linked directly to the volume we buy – and any saving associated – from our suppliers, labs and factories. So for instance, if we’ve got 100,000 women buying a mascara every month, the Members Price will likely be lower than if we’ve only got 1000. (Which is why we say that BEAUTY PIE IS LIKE THE BUYERS CLUB FOR COSMETIC ADDICTS). Larger quantity orders give us negotiating leeway. That’s why you might see slightly higher (remember, it’s all relative) Members Prices for some new launches, for the ’ of-the-moment’ trend colors that we don’t buy large quantities of, or for any new product categories we’re testing.

BEAUTY PIE relies on collective buying power of all our members to get the hottest new cosmetic formulations - which arrive in our warehouses in waves - at the actual (and fantastically low) Members Price. This is why it is so important that we grow our community and how you can help reduce the price you pay, by simply introducing more of your friends to our membership!

UPGRADES AND DOWNGRADES Can I upgrade my BEAUTY PIE membership and buy more products each month?

Yes you can! If your cosmetics bag really can’t live on the standard BEAUTY PIE plan, you have the option to UPGRADE. Upgrades can be added to your account at any time, and will kick-in instantly when you have checked out. To upgrade go to the spending limit bar at the bottom of your page and click "Upgrade your spending limit".

OUR PRODUCTS Where are BEAUTY PIE products made?

BEAUTY PIE products are produced at the world’s leading luxury cosmetics and skincare labs and manufacturers. We currently produce products in France, Spain, Korea, Italy, Germany, Japan, the UK and the USA. Each of our individual item pages states the country of origin of the product featured. You’ll see it listed just below the product name/benefits and above the review ratings.

How will I know if BEAUTY PIE products are good quality?

Our products aren’t good, they’re GREAT.
Because we don’t have to pay huge margins to middlemen. Nor do we have to worry about shaving seven cents out of our favorite lipstick to meet our end-of-year budget targets. Our everyday mission is to go out and source some of the world’s best beauty products, and to bring them to our members at their transparent Members Prices.
Our makeup artists, product developers and sourcing team have panel tested every single product we have in our collection (along with those about to launch) and believe we’re bringing our members the very best in cosmetics (now just wait until you see what we’ve got coming up the pipe in skincare, beauty tools, hair etc.)

Where can I get product tips and tricks

Instructions for BEAUTY PIE product use can be found on each product’s detail page, along with a good description of why we love it, what it does, and which ingredients it includes (and doesn’t include). You can also find a wealth of beauty ideas and inspiration in our e-mails and coming soon in our online magazine, The Beauty Dept. We also hope that soon, the members of BEAUTY PIE will have #hashtagged so many VLOG makeovers with #BEAUTYPIE products, you’ll never be short of ideas. Join us on Facebook and Instagram to make sure you don’t miss anything.

How do I leave a Review?

We LOVE to hear feedback from our members and leaving a review on a product you’ve purchased is very straightforward. This may be done by going to the product page and scrolling down, where you will find the “Write Review” link. From there you will be able to write your review. You will not have the option to write a review if you are not logged in as a member. All reviews must be approved by our team. It can take up to seven working days for a review to be approved and appear on the product page, as we need to ensure it follows our ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY (found on our terms and conditions page).

Does BEAUTY PIE perform testing on animals?

At BEAUTY PIE, we do not believe in or authorize animal testing for our products or the ingredients that go into our products. (This means we do not do animal testing, our suppliers do not do animal testing, nor do we pay people to do animal testing for us). Each of our product information files contains a declaration from the supplier that their products are not tested on animals, and that the ingredients comply with the European Ban on Animal Testing which has been in place since 2009.

Are BEAUTY PIE products vegan?

Whilst each and every one of our products complies with our belief of not testing on animals (we do not do animal testing, our suppliers do not do animal testing, nor do we pay people to do animal testing for us), there are a few products in our range that would not qualify as vegan due to them containing animal derivatives. Please contact our customer service team for the full list of products that contain animal derivatives at customer.service@beautypie.com.

Who/what are Earthinks®? (Which I notice you use for all your package printing.)

Earthinks® are among the most environmentally-friendly inks on the planet, are glycol and silicone free, contain no heavy metals, and have a zero voc level. We’re proud to say that we use them for all of the printing on our send-out packaging.


On first feel, you might suspect that BEAUTY PIE products feel ’light’.
And you’re right.
You won’t see us using any over-the-top fancy caps or rigid false-bottomed plastic jars. We’ve chosen plant-based inks and recyclable and recycled board for our cartons. And because it’s difficult on the environment (and the people who have to work with it) we do our best to avoid metallics and foil.
Too much cosmetic packaging currently ends up in landfill, and the more complex the componentry, the less easily it can be broken down for recycling. At BEAUTY PIE, we’re always working to make our packaging as ecologically conscious as possible and welcome your suggestions, comments, and concern.

If you chose USPS, please expect up to 3-5 business days for your delivery. If you have not received your package after 7 business days, please check your My Account page for your tracking code and track it on the USPS website.
