The five most expensive… items on Sephora.com

Saturday, October 31, 2009

Y’know. Just because we’re sick and masochistic like that. I have no comments or judgement on [most] of these, but I was curious and thought you ladies might be as well! Keep in mind that I did not include sets — this is just the single items!

Fifth place
This spot is shared by three items, all at the same whopping $300. Missoni‘s Missoni Parfum, Juicy Coutures‘s Juicy Couture Parfum (which is really half the price of the Missoni, as it’s double the size) and the T3 Bespoke Labs Evolution Dryer.

And may I just point out that the Missoni bottle is ugly as hell? Thanks.
Fourth place

One point seven ounces of Givenchy’s Le Soin Noir will set you back $360. What is it with companies putting algae in moisturisers and amping up the price tenfold for it?
Third place
This fell just short of second place — at $499, Silk’n‘s Silk’n SensEpil will remove your body hair with lasers. But only if you have fair skin and dark hair, plus a fairly high pain tolerance and a hell of a lot of patien
ce!
Second place
Kate Somerville‘s Deep Tissue Repair Cream with Peptide K8. Kate, honey, if anyone’s ploppin’ down $500 for 5oz of this, they need more than their deep tissue repaired.


First place
The just-discussed item, Sephora‘s insanely expensive Luxury Lighted Makeup Stand, for the low, low price of $998.

    That sephora work station looks like a barbecue grille to me…I think I will just get a real barbecue grill for 100 bucks…

    even at that price range I'm interested in the silk'n sensepil, it may save me some salon $$!

    Citrine: LOL!! I don't know, hon… I mean, there are some pretty bright lights on that thing, and it's fire-retardant. I kinda feel like you CAN use it as a barbecue grill :P

    Catherine: Haha, well put =P

    makeupgirl22: Me too, a little! But there's no guarantee it'll work, or that it'll have long-term effects, so I'm not about to buy it anytime soon x.x

    I can't imagine spending $300 on a bottle of perfume. I just… can. not. I mean, how good can this stuff possibly smell??

  8. Rae // theNotice, on November 1st, 2009 at 7:22 pm said:

    AaA: I know! I mean, they're super-concentrated so they'll last ages, but that is still WAY out of the budget of most sane people :P

    I love Juicy Couture perfume (I have 2 bottles), it's smells fabulous. But at $300, I think absolutely no way. The EDP is pretty well concentrated as it is!

    That makeup stand is gorgeous, but I'd rather get a nice wood desk or vanity, a pretty mirror and a few spotlights.

  10. Rae // theNotice, on November 1st, 2009 at 9:37 pm said:

    Christy: I agree with you completely! Plus, a $998 budget would pretty much mean you'd end up with the best vanity ever :P

    Laura: I know!! Hmm, a makeup stand or a camera + one or two lenses? GEE, HOW WILL I EVER CHOOSE? :P(Have fun in the Bahamas dear!)

    Glitterati: Ha!! Your analogy is perfection — it totally does look like that!!

    your tag is dead right:

    disturbing prices!

    also, insane consumers.

    SO many other ways to spend that kinda cash. for example, for slightly more than the 'barbeque' vanity (per person), I am going to Bahamas with hubby in December. for a week. over Christmas.

    LOL (okay, more like "gagging") @ the Missoni perfume cozy. The spitting image of a 7-yr old's summer camp arts & craft project.

    what?!?!?! $300 for a hair dryer??!?!?!?!

  16. Rae // theNotice, on November 2nd, 2009 at 6:04 pm said:

    Suzie: LOL, that was the only one I thought was even vaguely reasonable!! :P I guess as a hair girl, I can see how that would be an investment for a stylist or "true" hair aficionado… the others? Not so much.
