We hate to admit it, but in Northern hemisphere November might be a bit depressing. It’s dark, it’s cold and it’s windy. Our skin and hair gets winter dry, we don’t look sun-kissed anymore and there’re still some weeks left till Christmas vacation. Our best trick for fighting greyness and drizzle is coziness overload. Our plan for this month is to stay in as much as we can, take long baths in candlelight, cuddle in warm, fluffy towels and daydream about sunny hot days in Morocco. Here’re five products to get you in the same mood: Continue reading →
Our most labour-intensive and picture-heavy project yet. To celebrate our love for lippies and Scandinavian make-up brands, we’ve teamed up with Make Up Store to bring you swatches of all their lipsticks. All 60 of them. Eventually. But first things first: here’re ten international bestsellers featuring everything from thick mattes to light shimmers in a wide variety of shades including intensive reds, electric pinks and barely-there-nudes.

For nearly half a year, Purifying Care Cleansing Gel from German organic cosmetics brand Annemarie Börlind has been my favourite. I will definitely include it in the list of “Beauty Products You Have to Buy in Germany,” which I’m planning to publish very soon, but for now I will tell you more about the gel.
This is Beauty Pie’s favourite category, because we get a chance to give back to you for all the support and care we receive. For every 100 likes on our Facebook page we ask five of you to share with us your most loved beauty products. This time, as there’s Men’s Day approaching in Russia, we talked to five boys representing Argentina, Korea, France, Sweden and Russia about their favourite grooming products. Great gift inspiration and a confirmation that boys and girls are not that different. Continue reading →
Beauty Pie’s signature category: the notorious Pandora’s Box. In here, we’ve put the most useless beauty products we’ve bought (God knows why) that pretty much collect dust and take up space in our bathroom cabinets. As we spend a fortune on cosmetics each month, we thought we’d be helpful and neighbourly to prevent you from making some of our mistakes. Products in this category aren’t necessarily bad (as we believe that there’s no such thing as bad cosmetics), but these items either didn’t fit in in our daily routines, didn’t fulfill what was promised on the packaging or just didn’t meet our expectations. We’ve all been there sometimes: impulsively buying some multi-purpose oils just because they smell good, or new limited edition make-up products because the packaging looks so cute, or simply because something is on sale. Well, next time think twice, have you seen it flying out of Beauty Pie’s Pandora Box? Put it back on the shelf.
