If Money Were No Object...

...what beauty products would you own?  A Clarisonic?  La Mer creams?  Expensive, exclusive perfume?  A makeup bag of nothing but Chanel?  Here's a little peek into my own indulgent luxury wishlist.  Some are more attainable than others, some are a bit outlandish, but that's part of the fun!  Let's dream big, shall we?

La Mer The Eye Concentrate: This is the only eye cream I've heard of that honestly, truly reduced undereye circles.  I trust Beauty Bets, y'all.  $165 for 0.5 oz.

Rodin Olio Lusso Face Oil: The most luxurious-sounding oil contains jasmine, primrose, argan, neroli, rosemary, and a host of other lovely essential oils.  Its creator, Linda Rodin, sounds like someone I'd want to hang out with as well.  Or at least explore her fabulous madcap apartment.  $140 for 1 oz.

Dior AirFlash Foundation: Nothing could be more glamorous than misting on your foundation, am I right?  I want to know how long a bottle lasts.  Anyone tried it?  $62 for 2.3 oz.

Guerlain Rouge G Jewel Compact Lipstick: As pricey as Tom Ford but infinitely more gorgeous, this lipstick is encased in a stunning silver compact.  Engraved with the word "glamorous", of course.  $47 for 0.12 oz.

MAC Makeup Brushes: Not just one brush; ALL the brushes.  I don't even want to know what this would cost.  Part of the fantasy, you know.

Cartier Panthere Ring: If you've never read about the Marchesa Casati, the woman who inspired Cartier's iconic panther jewelry, you need to right now.  $55,500 (I wish that was a typo!)

Diptyque candlesI'd have one (or three!) in every room.  The leftover glass jars would be lovely for storing all those MAC brushes, too.  $60 for 6.5 oz

Guerlain personalized perfume: Yes.  Legendary perfumers Guerlain will custom blend your own fragrance.  You get 24 different-sized bottles, totaling up to two liters (and five years' worth) of eau de parfum.  This is the holy grail of luxury.  Price available upon request.  Sighhhh!

Your turn!  What's on your luxury wishlist?
