File this under: absurd splurge.
Japanese brand Cle de Peau Beaute announced the launch of the globe's most expensive moisturizer ever. With a hefty price tag of $13,000 for a 50-gram jar, La Creme is worth more than gold -- literally. Five times more in fact.
Even if you had a bevy of cash lying around and wanted to indulge, you'd have to act fast. Only three jars of the luxe product are being sold. And these containers aren't your average glass or plastic packages. Each hand crafted jar is made of up crystals and platinum rungs.
The brand's spokesmodel Amanda Seyfried will promote the face cream, which will be released on September 21 to mark the brand's 30th anniversary.

Maybe it's my unairconditioned bathroom or the allure of the summer sun, but this time of year the last thing I want to do is spend a lot of time getting ready. So any product that'll help speed things along is a must. That's why the launch of the new Caudalie Divine Oil, $48, couldn't have come at a better time.
It's a lightly fragranced mix of grape, hibiscus, and argan oils (the scent is inspired by the South of France) that you can apply everywhere: your body, face, even the ends of your hair. It also gives your skin a very subtle sheen, so it looks great on your legs when you're wearing skirts and shorts. This may just be my new summer staple. Read More »

I was invited to check out a screening of "Rock of Ages" last night (the movie opens Friday), and while the '80s music and Tom Cruise's leather pants were captivating, I was mostly watching for the hair and makeup. The highlights included Julianne Hough's super-blonde Farrah Fawcett waves and Malin Akerman's wild perm. And while there wasn't as much blue eyeshadow as I'd hoped (maybe the makeup artists decided it was just too unflattering), there was plenty of frosted pink lipstick to go around.
If you're planning to see the movie this weekend, you can get in the rock n' roll spirit with a manicure -- and I'm not talking about hot-pink press-ons or French tips, which would rank right up there with the blue shadow. There's a special line of Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail… See more »
