Celebrities try to sell us a lot of stuff; perfumes, makeup, hair products, clothes, shoes, diet pills, the list goes on and on. But what celebrity products give you the most bang for your buck? These consumer goods run from the very very high end to the very low end. Whatever your price range, you can look, smell and diet like a celebrity.
Below, we take a look at the best and most outrageous celebrity buys along with some of the better ones:
Every star from the A-list to the D-list seems to have their own fragrance these days. Pam Anderson shills her scent in Rite Aids while Jennifer Aniston's Lolavie will be available later this year in high end department stores. The price difference is astounding. Lolavie sells for a whopping $95 for 1.7 oz. while Pam's Malibu Pink (which we imagine to be a nosy bouquet of zinc oxide and bleach) sells for $35 per 1.7 oz. How much you are willing to spend all depends on which celebrity you want to smell like, a Baywatch babe or a Friend. But thankfully those aren't you only two options. You can also got for the median price to smell like Carrie Bradshaw (this somehow seems more appealing). Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely sells for just $52 at Macy's.
Weight Loss Help.
Who is your celebrity weight loss role model? Is it the Kardashian sisters? Kourtney did shed that baby weigh awful fast and Kim seems to only gain weight in all the right places. The reality television family's Quick Trim 14-day Burn and Cleanse system sells for $29.99. That breaks down to just under $2 a day. Kirstie Alley's Organic Liasons diet plan runs a little higher, costing a monthly fee of $139, or just under $5 a day. Most Americans would probably want to look a little more like a Kardashian than Kirstie, but again there is a happy medium. As a trainer on NBC's "The Biggest Loser" Jillian Michaels has been effective in helping people lose a ton (literally) of weight. Jillian Michaels JumpStart 14 Day Cleanse & Burn System retails for $39.99, or just under $3 a day .
if you want to bejewel yourself like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie you'll have to shell out a pretty penny. Brad and Angelina have lent their names to cufflinks white gold and black diamond for Asprey jewelers retail for around $10,000! Of course all the money goes to the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, a charitable organization Jolie co-founded. But if 10k seems too pricey to get blingy with the stars you can buy one of country music star Miranda Lambert's necklaces to benefit her charity MuttNation from PennyRoyal for $75. Cheaper still, you can purchase one of Paula Abdul's "Reach for the Stars" rings for $7.95 from HSN. Paula reportedly designed the"Reach for the Stars" line to dole out to expectant American Idols while they competed on the show.
A Nicole Richie-designed Winter Kate tunic sells at Nordstrom's for $125 which is amazing when you think about how little fabric is needed to cover that tiny girl. It's much less expensive to get gussied up for a brawl with Heidi Montag. A Lauren Conrad babydoll dress sells for $44.99 at Kohls.
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen must know a little bit about high heels. They're so teeny tiny they need any height advantage they can get. A pair of Mary Kate and Ashley's' Elizabeth and James line of shoes will cost around $425 at Neiman Marcus . A pair of Jessica Simpson heels will run 1/8th of that, costing you $79 at Macy's. But the best celebrity shoe deal just might be from Kim Kardashian (she's got her hand and feet in everything!). For $39.00 a month you can sign on with Kardashian's Shoe Dazzle and receive a pair of heels every 30 days. It's like a beer of the month club that won't leave you with a hangover!
If you've ever day dreamed about getting tipsy and firing your roommates you may want to settle in with a bottle Trump Vodka from the one and only Donald Trump, retailing for $27.99 which is actually a tad cheaper than other premium vodka brands. If that's a little too straight for your tastes get wacky with Marilyn Manson's own brand of absinthe (this just seems like the start of a bad horror movie), Mansinthe, selling for $54.95 a bottle.
Are they worth it? Well, some are higher quality, of course, but in general most celebrity products are worth it to the customer if the customer values the association. But then again if wearing the Pam Anderson cologne gets you the lifeguard job of your dreams...
