You may not be able to afford a custom Givenchy Haute Couture wedding gown or an absolutely stunning Stella McCartney number complete with a y’huge aquamarine ring, but you can get your paws on Meghan Markle’s fave mascara ‘cos it’s deliciously affordable.

So, who have the eternal royal bragging rights?

Maybelline have with their genuinely affordable Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara.

Folks, it’s 10.69 bucks a pop at Chemist Warehouse, where all the great deals are at, or it usually retails for around the 20s with Priceline Pharmacy selling the mascara for $21.95.

The Duchess of Sussex’s former makeup artist Lydia Sellers worked with Meghan from 2015 to 2017 during her time on Suits. Lydia told Hello! that it was actually Meghan who had introduced the mascara to her:

“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.”

  • Make-up artist approval – tick.
  • Duchess of Sussex approval – tick.

So why are people fixating on Meghan’s lashes? Cast your mind back to the Royal Wedding and a heap of envious hearts were praising the bride for her classic natural beauty look. And you can bet your buck Youtubers have already re-created the look.

No really, they have.

Taking to their social media, Maybelline royally bragged posting:

“Lash sensational #lusciousmascara has been royally approved. This formula is infused with precious oils for soft, luscious lashes and is loved by one of the newest members of the royal family.”

In other news:
