This has got to be the priciest makeup I have ever seen: it’s even pricier than Shiseido’s luxe Cle de Peau makeup line. This is from the signature line of Serge Lutens, the makeup artist who had previously created the dramatic looks for Shiseido’s print advertising and displays. Serge Lutens makeup is available from Barneys.
Would you pay $160.00 for foundation??? Yes, you read that correctly: one hundred sixty dollars. What is the price you are willing to spend on makeup?
2006-09-21 UPDATE: apparently, Serge Lutens has nothing on H. Couture Beauty, which retails its mascara for $589.00 and its lipstick for $150.00 – found via The Weekend Read, from Elke von Freudenberg’s The Beauty Newsletter. The cheek to call this “H. Couture Beauty”!
