The Duchess of Cambridge is known for her impeccable style (as is her fabulous sister-in-law Meghan Markle). Often accompanying her posh appearance is a fresh, dewy makeup look, so we’re always on the hunt for the beauty products Kate Middleton uses.

Luckily, we’re not the only ones! While watching this year’s Wimbledon matches, Kate gave herself a touchup — and cameras caught the product she was using. Shortly thereafter, Twitter users posted the brand name.

While we were stoked to discover a product the Duchess trusts, we were skeptical about whether it would be something we could actually afford. Turns out the gloss is $26 — a bit more than we usually spend on lip gloss, but with Kate’s blessing it must be worth the cost, right?

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector comes in five shades ranging from shimmering apricot to Kate’s fave, toffee pink. Since Kate always sports an understated look, it’s not surprising this lip gloss adds a highlighting sheen rather than a distracting glisten.

Made from shea butter and wild mango, the conditioning formula is lightweight and durable. One shopper said it “goes on smoothly, lightly and is good to my lips. For a gloss, it has better lasting quality than most.”

Another reviewer called it a “great everyday lip gloss,” adding that “the color is present but subtle, enough to brighten you up without getting cakey, even if you have some dryness. It goes on really smooth and feels great. It’s very moisturizing for both summer and winter.”

We’re sold. Thanks Kate!
