Dept of Daft: Kyobeni Rouge
Kyobeni Rouge is probably the world's most expensive lipstick. It costs between $675 and $2,850 for a pot that holds up to 50 applications. Isehan-Honten, the company that has just launched Kyobeni Rouge, says that this is justified because its green (crushed safflower petals), rare (said petals must be harvested from one particular mountain in July and before dawn), and has staying power (ever seen a Geisha touching up her lippy in the bathroom?).
