As a newly-crowned royal and longtime Hollywood actress, Meghan Markle has access to some of the biggest names in the beauty and skincare world.

We know that she loves Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer ($44) and Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution Lipstick ($34) when it comes to her glam, and can’t live without her Kate Somerville’s ‘Quench’ Hydrating Serum ($75), which is how she gets her gorgeous glow.

But, it’s just been revealed that Meghan is also a fan of this super affordable mascara! You’ve definitely seen it in your local drugstore before–it’s Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara!

Maybelline's Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara ($6.30) 


This mascara features a fanning reservoir brush with ten layers of bristles to reveal layers of lashes. It's also formulated with three oils (rose oil, safflower oil, and argan oil) to help soften and nourish your lashes to prevent breakage and brittleness.

Meghan's former makeup artist, Lydia Sellers, revealed that this is the mascara she swears by for volumized, fuller lashes.


"Meghan actually introduced me to a drugstore mascara, Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara," she recalls. "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."

It’s so affordable, and makes my skin look and feel amazing," she says. "I would buy a case of this at a time if I could find it."


This dermatologist-tested lotion is proven to firm and tighten the skin's surface in as little as two weeks, leaving you with softer, smoother, and more toned skin!

If you want to treat yourself like a royal, then you should definitely try Meghan's favorite body wash from Dr. Bronner's. It's scented with pure lavender and lavandin oils to calm the mind and soothe the body. 


"I love the smell and it lasts for such a long time," she explains. "The almond scent is quite nice too if you prefer something warm and sweet. I alternate between the two."
