Kate Middleton Wore This $26 Clarins Lip Gloss at Wimbledon, and It’s Still in Stock

When it comes to royal beauty routines, it seems like we’ve learned a little more recently about how Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, gets her go-to look—we’ve even tracked down her exact favorite lipstick and the Tatcha exfoliator that keeps her skin glowing. But at Wimbledon on Tuesday, Kate Middleton let slip one of her own product picks, too, and it’s a big part of her signature makeup look.

As the royals tend to do, Middleton usually keeps it pretty low-key with her makeup, favoring a look with products and shades that enhance her natural features: eyeliner and mascara, a bit of blush, a lip color that’s more rosy than red. At Wimbledon, cameras captured her pulling out a tube of what was ID’d by a Middleton fan account on Twitter as the $26 Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rose for a quick touch-up. If you zoom in on the picture below, you can spot the brand and product name—everything except for the shade, in fact.

If you’re thinking you don’t really see royals touching up their makeup, you’re right: You almost never see them putting on another swipe of lipstick in public—that’s very much a behind-the-scenes sort of thing with that group. And because Middleton’s an official member of the royal family, we’ll likely never know for sure if this is definitely the right product and shade (it doesn’t do for a duchess to publicly discuss her beauty routine). However, if we compare what she’s holding in her hand above to the product below, it appears that the Twitter detective’s guess was spot-on.

Ulta describes the gloss as having a “melting cream texture” and a “nourishing formula [that] delivers intense hydration… and a hint of shimmer”—and it’s apparently great for layering with lipstick as well as wearing alone. Hey, if it’s good enough for a duchess, it’s good enough for us.
