The Academy Awards, better known as the Oscars, is one of the biggest television events of the year with lavish outfits, beautiful hair and makeup, and of course, the actors and artists we have come to know and love for creating our favorite movies. Although not everyone will win an Oscar, every nominee will leave with an official Oscars swag bag.
What’s a swag bag? A gift bag of luxury gifts. From a $10,000 certificate for cosmetic treatments to a trip to Italy, these gifts are not your average party favor. A press release was sent out with the full list of all the items in this year’s swag bag, but the beauty-related gifts alone add up to more than $20,000.
Here’s a compiled list of 5 notable beauty-related gifts in the 2023 Oscars swag bag:
Seven perfumes inspired by the seven royal families around the world for $3,555.
