Everyone knows that gold is considered one of the precious metals. It is rare, beautiful and quite expensive. What only the most beauty-conscious among us may be aware of is that gold is far cheaper than some truly decadent beauty products. Here are five of these items which cost more per ounce than gold, which is at $1,500/ounce while I write this.
Adore Cosmetics Golden Touch 24k Techno-Dermis Facial Mask Set
The Golden Touch 24k Techno-Dermis Facial Mask Set from Adore Cosmetics costs nearly $5,000 for a set of a dozen thin facial masks. While truly a set of facial masks for only the wealthy, Adore Cosmetics boasts they are worth the price.
Each Golden Touch 24k Techno-Dermis Facial Mask combines the restorative power of gold with the age-defying properties of plant stem cells to bring out the absolute best in your face.
Jean Patou Joy Baccarat Pure Parfum
Costing an impressive $1,800 for a one-ounce bottle, one-and-a-half times the cost of gold is the Joy Baccarat Pure Parfum from Jean Patou. This decadent, limited-edition perfume can be found online from Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and other luxury retailers.
Only 50 bottles of this perfume are made for Jean Patou each year, as the flowers necessary to the unique scent are only suitable to be harvested for two weeks of the summer and over ten thousand blossoms are necessary for each bottle.
OROGOLD 24K Cleopatra Nano Regimen
The 24k Cleopatra Nana Regimen from OROGOLD contains a total of eight treatments in three different products and still manages to have a cost higher than what its weight in gold would cost. The entire regimen can be bought on the OROGOLD website for $8,000.
The OROGOLD 24k Cleopatra Nano Regimen consists of eight uses of 24K Cleopatra Nano Silk Cream, 24K Cleopatra Nano Serum and 24K Cleopatra Nano Gold Sheets. Together, the treatment is supposed to be unparalleled in providing complete care for your skin and results in a glowing, dewy beauty.
Clive Christian X Pure Perfume
Crafted by one of the oldest and best known British perfume houses, Clive Christian, the X Pure Perfume costs just under $2,000 for a one-ounce bottle.
This scent was created to be sexy and lusty, combining notes of peach, Sicilian mandarin, bergamot, rhubarb, pineapple Heart notes of Egyptian jasmine, rose, lily of the valley, orris Base notes of patchouli, cedarwood, vetiver, vanilla, and cashmere musk.
Azature Black Diamond Nail Polish
Topping this list with a truly awe-striking price is this Black Diamond Nail Polish from Azature. Not to be confused with the department store version sold by Azature (in multiple colors and at a fraction of the price), this bottle of nail polish is infused with 267 carats of black diamonds. A single bottle costs $250,000.
You can’t buy the true version of Azature Black Diamond Nail Polish anywhere online. Wealthy beauty aficionados determined to have the most expensive nails anyone’s ever seen will have to stop by Azature’s headquarters in sunny Los Angeles.
