Meghan Markle's Favorite Mascara Is Actually Super Affordable

The newest royal hasn't abandoned her "commoner" roots.

Meghan Markle may be the Duchess of Sussex now, but the former Suits star appreciates the value of a good drugstore makeup purchase. Her former makeup artist, Lydia Sellers, recently spoke to Hello! magazine and shared that the newly minted princess is a big fan of a very affordable mascara.

Markle's go-to lash enhancer is apparently Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara.

"Meghan actually introduced me to a drugstore mascara, Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara," Sellers told Hello! "I keep it stocked in my kit now at all times thanks to her!"

Sellers went on to explain what she likes about the mascara, namely that it "really helps to amplify your lashes" and manages to be at once "great for full volume and lengthening," not to mention hydrating. And yes, the price tag is pretty fantastic, too.

"I love how it builds, and that the price point is accessible for all budgets," Sellers said.

While the mascara goes for $6.99 at Target in the United States, for example, Markle's new compatriots in the United Kingdom will have to pay a bit more for it. The product sells for £8.99 (about $12) at the pharmacy chain Boots, according to Hello! Still, that's much cheaper than the high-end beauty products you'd probably expect a member of the royal family to wear.

Maybelline is, of course, thrilled to get Markle's seal of approval. The brand's Instagram account recently posted an image of the mascara, saying it has been "royally approved."

We can't blame Maybelline for being excited. If the mascara is even partially responsible for Markle looking as gorgeous as she always does, we're ready to try it — and we doubt we're the only ones.
