Kate Middleton's status as an international beauty icon is undeniable. From her enviable locks to her effortless makeup looks, the Duchess of Cambridge's chic, understated style has earned her fans around the globe.
Luckily, Middleton's regimen is surprisingly accessible. Between her drugstore hairspray to her must-have rosehip oil, the royal's beauty picks are often found at the same stateside suppliers we all know and love. The latest Kate Middleton-approved affordable product to cause waves? Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector ($26, Nordstrom) in "Rose Shimmer."
Earlier this summer, Middleton, 37, was spotted using the soft, pink lip gloss while sitting on the sidelines at Wimbledon. After pictures of her applying the product hit the internet, eagle-eyed fans were quick to ferret out the brand, leading to a massive jump in sales for the retailer.
We're not shocked it's one of the Duchess' faves. Described as having a "melting cream texture," Clarins' Lip Perfector isn't your average lip topper. Formulated to be nourishing and provide intense hydration, this gloss comes loaded with skin-softening ingredients such as shea butter and mango extract, plus a delectable vanilla scent.
It doesn't come with the troublesome stickiness you find from other brands, and with 12 gorgeous shades to choose from, there's an option for everyone.
With an almost five-star rating, it seems that Middleton isn't the only one that adores this lip gloss: One Macy's reviewer shared, "I've always stayed away from lip gloss because I cannot stand that tacky stickiness, but this gloss has changed my mind! It's AMAZING! Not tacky at all, no yuck flavoring. Oh, super plus, when I carry this I don't need any chapstick even in the winter. I'm a fan!"
A lip gloss adored by Kate and customers alike? This is one beauty product we're royally excited to add to our collection!
