How much is TOO much?


So I came across this article in the Daily Mail

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/beauty/article-1305282/Bankrupted-beauty--595-face-cream--53-lipstick-100-foundation--cosmetics-prices-gone-mad.html


which basically talks about how beauty products have such inflated, ridiculous prices - £595 for 30ml of a serum?! I definitely agree that you could get several Botox treatments for that price, which despite its ethical concerns, definitely provides a true result.
Now despite the majority of my products being "high-street" brands - Rimmel, 17, Barry M etc - I do own quite a bit of higher-end stuff such as MAC, Urban Decay...but right now, that's my limit.
Anything with a price more than £25 (and even that's a lot) - I've got to question, is it REALLY worth it?
I have some eyeshadows that cost me £9.99 (around $17) on eBay (for 54 in a palette) that have a MUCH better pigmentation and colour payoff/last than my MAC.
But the item that really takes the (diamond encrusted) biscuit is Guerlains "KissKiss Gold and Diamond" lipstick - at $62,000. Are you KIDDING me?!



...yep. 62 THOUSAND big ones.
What's the World come to, eh?
What're your thoughts on highly expensive beauty products - worth it or not worth re-mortgaging your house for?
Till next time,

How much is TOO much?
