You know those days when you feel like you need to funnel a bunch of cash into something so ridiculously impractical that you will be a cautionary tale one day? Yeah, us too (we sometimes call it payday), but every once in a while a product crosses our desks that makes us think that lusting after a pair of emerald drop earrings or a delicious cashmere wrap coat is child’s play. Today, that item is a diamond-encrusted makeup brush from beauty brand Artis, and it retails for an eye-popping $25,000.
While we’d happily apply our makeup day in and day out with tools covered in diamonds (wouldn’t you?), it raises the question: Why? It all started when brand founders Jeremy Adelman and Matthew Waitesmith decided to launch a bespoke service so that their customers can collaborate with artisans and designers to create their own unique brush. That means anything from monogrammed handles to gemstones are up for grabs. “The design of this black-diamond brush is a precious take on our most iconic and best-selling brush, the Artis Elite Mirror Oval 7. [It’s] adorned with two white gold plates, one that features a mosaic of precious gems, and one that is engravable to be customized with the design or message of the owner’s desire.”
If the brush itself isn’t enough for you, you can also purchase it as a part of the Fantasy Travel Kit, which includes a brush set, cleansing silks, a gold travel case, and more. So if you feel like treating yourself this season or have a friend who is worthy of a five-figure makeup brush, it’s available to buy today, 10/14, on ArtisBrush.com. And if you’re the lucky person who snags this one-of-a-kind creation, know that we’re already giving you a well-deserved round of applause.
