Among the long list of reasons why we LOVE Meghan Markle, is the fact that Meghan shares our obsession with drugstore makeup – it seems that no one, not even the royal family, can resist a good bargain! Needless to say, when we discovered that Meghan relied on a $12 beauty balm we were shocked, but finding out she also uses (and recommends) a $6 mascara, was the cherry on the cake. Here’s everything you need to know about the duchess-approved mascara.

The mascara of the moment is the Maybelline Lash Sensation Luscious Mascara, $6, which we’ve since crowned as Maybelline’s unsung hero. Meghan actually told her makeup artist Lydia Sellers about the product, who told Hello! Magazine: “I keep it stocked in my kit now at all times thanks to her! This mascara really helps to amplify your lashes and polish off the entire look. It’s great for full volume and lengthening, the formula is super hydrating. I love how it builds, and that the price point is accessible for all budgets.”

We totally get why Meghan rates this mascara so highly. Firstly, the fanning brush has ten layers of bristles so it can separate and build the lashes, which gives a feathered, full lash effect. Plus, the formula itself is infused with three different essential oils; rose oil, argan oil, and safflower oil to soften and nourish the lash and prevent them from looking or feeling brittle. Finally, it’s easily buildable so it can take you from an everyday mascara to sexy voluminous lashes in under a minute. There’s also a waterproof version if you’re looking for a new summer proof mascara. Oh, and we can’t forget to mention the price point – it’s literally one of the cheapest mascaras on the shelves.
