Price: $14, 000, 000 USD
Taysha Smith Valez, the designer responsible for the opulent beauty line, desired to transform luxury makeup into a lavish buyer’s fantasy. She created a makeup line ‘H. Couture’ to transcend the current standards of luxury beauty products into an entirely different level.

To help compensate for the exorbitant price, the mascara would be refilled free of charge for whenever you ran out. The company additionally provided lifetime concierge service 24/7 phone support, discounts, and gift-wrapping services. This item, before it was removed from the market, was the most expensive beauty item for sale.
Azature Black Diamond Polish
Price: $250, 000 USD
Acclaimed prior to H.Couture Beauty Mascara as the world’s most expensive nail polish, the Azature Black Diamond Polish is infused with 267 carats of black diamonds. This opulent product has attracted the eye of many affluent buyers, including Kelly Osbourne. Founder of Azature and Jewellery Couturier, Azature Pogosian disclosed that his “designs have become celebrity favourites amongst, Beyonce, Fergie, Rihanna, and international royalty”.

Model’s Own Gold Rush Nail Polish
Price: $130, 000 USD
An alternative extravagant nail polish that previously held the title of the world’s most expensive nail polish is the Model’s Own ‘Gold Rush’ nail polish. This palatial nail lacquer is encased with a hand made yellow gold bottle top permeated with 1, 118 genuine diamonds.
Tony Nguyen, the general manager of Model’s Own stated “Not only is the bottle absolutely exquisite, but also the richness and dimension of the colour on nails is unlike any other polish on the market. It truly looks as if your nails have been adorned in gold leaf and sprinkled with diamond powder”.
