Beauty Byte: Cosmetics For Caviar Tastes

While we're on the topic of ultra-expensive face creams, check out this story from Women's Wear Daily about the growing market for "uber-luxurious" fragrances and beauty products. Headlined "Costly Concoctions," this story makes a $150 moisturizer sound like a bargain, finding beauty products with price tags that "rival those of sports cars or fine jewelry":

Take V1, a fragrance created by London-based designer Arfaq, which has a starting price point of $170,000 per platinum, gold, ruby and diamond-bedecked bottle. ... Clive Christian, based in London, claims to sell the world's most expensive juice, with its No. 1 fragrance weighing in at £1,260 per ounce.

The article also points to Estee Lauder's Re-Nutriv creams, which can cost more than $300. I can understand that a bottle covered in precious gems would cost a pretty penny, but a face cream? It all seems a little bit ridiculous to me. Even if you had all the money in the world, would you pay this much for beauty?

I read an article on yahoo's front page about expensive face serums and that just because they're expensive doesn't necessarily mean they're the best out there, and they made the point that mass-produced brands that you find at your local drug store have more funding and more resources to do the necessary research to find what's good out there. So yeah, I wouldn't spend that much on something that you could get at the drug store that could be just as good for only $10.

I have my fair share of probably over-priced beauty products, but I WOULD NEVER pay that much for fragrance! Do you know how many cars someone could buy with that much money? Jeez!
