We’ll admit it. A tiny part of us has always dreamed of what it’d be like to own Elizabeth Taylor’s opulent collection of gold-encrusted jewelry. (Have you seen the necklace she wore in Cleopatra?) Sadly the truth is that most of us just can’t afford such luxuries.
Lucky for us, the beauty world has found innovative ways to infuse rare and precious properties into our favorite products, giving us a taste of the Liz Taylor lifestyle that we’ve always fantasized about. Here are four luxurious goodies that will make you feel like a million bucks:
Beauty Protector Protect & Shampoo: The secret ingredient in this sulfate-free shampoo is honey pearl powder, which mimics the effects of hair protein keratin to help fortify your strands. The formula also packs a mixture of sea salt and vitamins to help protect your locks from heat styling and environmental damage. The end result? A gorgeous, glossy mane.
étoile new york Nail Polish: When we’re in the mood for an subtly eye-catching mani we reach for these pretty polishes, which use real diamond dust to give nails a lasting sparkle. They’re a serious step up from the standard glitter polishes that we love which often flake away after a few days of wear and tear.
I.C.O.N. India 24K Richly Exotic Masque: In addition to the five power-packed oils that nourish and soften your strands (Moringa, argan, and amber oil to name a few), the pure gold flecks in this hair mask shine and reflect light to give your locks even more luster.
Kelly Van Gogh Haircare: Caviar oil, the star ingredient in this color-treated haircare line, is rich in proteins and omega acids which helps repair damage and heal stressed strands. In addition to hydrating and taming frizz, we love that the every products also helps restore shine while extending the life of your hue.
