As beauty editors, we're tuned in to pretty much every beauty product on the market, and every once in awhile we come across one that makes us think, "Wait, it seriously costs that much?!" To be fair, these items usually contain super-luxe and expensive ingredients (like gold and caviar), hence why the cost is so high. They're like the Rolls Royces of skin-care. Take a look at seven products specially made for one-percenters (and girls willing to sell their valued possessions).
Created by a notable plastic surgeon, this treatment in four vials helps fight aging around the eyes in about four weeks time (one vial per week). The treatment is recommended for use twice a year, so it's not like you'd be burning through $750 every month, if that's any consolation.

Platinum, the most precious metal on Earth, is packed into this cream…which explains the engagement ring-level price tag. La Prairie scientists discovered that the rare metal has the ability to bond with human skin, creating an anti-aging "masterpiece" based off of some of the metal's awesome abilities. An example? The metal is incapable of being oxidized by air, making it immune to aging. The La Prairie formula recharges the skin's electrical balance to help with anti-aging, in addition to adding copious amounts DNA-protecting moisture.

La Mer, definitely one of the most infamously expensive beauty brands, makes some of the most amazing products. This serum is known to visibly "lift and contour" a person's facial definition. The brand uses a new sea-born ferment that is said to help promote the skin's natural collagen production, which, as a nice side effect, creates the illusion of a slimmer jaw line.

Givenchy's little anti-aging miracle is formulated with golden brown algae, which works in conjunction with black algae concentrated sap to reduce all signs of aging and deterioration of the skin. The serum comes out black, but the color quickly disappears once applied (and we have to say, the black hue definitely feels extra fancy).
