Kiss Kiss Lipstick

"Oh, Honey, you shouldn't have!"

French perfumery house Guerlain just announced the gift for the girl who has everything. It's KissKiss Gold and Diamonds, "the first-ever $62,000 lipstick, custom designed in France, adorned with 110 g of solid 18-carat yellow gold and paved with a rain of 199 diamonds of 2.2 carats."

The new lipstick is designed for "those who indulge in lavishness and appreciate exceptional design."

Not quite "lavish" enough?

Consider the gifts offered in the Neiman Marcus holiday catalogue, as reported recently by CNN. The high end retailer is offering a bunch of gift ideas for the gift-giver to whom money clearly is no object. Here's a sampling:

  • A "his and hers" portrait by Vik Muniz, composed with chocolate syrup. Price: $110,000
  • A 350-carat uncut diamond necklace: Starting price: $1 million.
  • A Triton 100 submarine that dives up to 1000 feet into the ocean. Price: $1.44 million
  • And for the music lover who has everything: A private classical concert hosted by Regis Philbin. "The Kirov Orchestra will perform holiday favorite the Nutcracker Suite, along with the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto and another masterpiece of their choice." Price: $1.6 million
