Anything over $100+ makes me question just how much is going to the packaging and how much to the product, and since I am more into functional packaging vs. luxury packaging, I’d be less likely to buy it. Cle de Peau’s highlighters can be purchased as pan-only products for $55, but if you want the compact, it’ll run you $95 total. I’ll part with the $55, but I’m not going to knowingly spend $40 for a compact. I’d rather keep it in its original plastic shell packaging or an empty palette! I know I’ve purchased at least one of Guerlain’s limited edition, pressed Meteorites, which go for $170+… and no, not ever worth it – total indulgence, total luxury, and never, ever necessary to me.
