The Lip Gloss At The Center Of Kate Middleton And Meghan Markle's Infamous Exchange
In Prince Harry's memoir, "Spare," he shares an awkward moment between his wife, Meghan Markle, and Kate Middleton that involved borrowing lipgloss.
Harry writes that when Meghan asked Kate to borrow lip gloss, she reluctantly obliged and "grimaced" when Meghan "squeezed some onto her fingers and applied it to her lips."
While we aren't exactly sure which lip gloss it was, all guesses lead to the Clarins Natural Lip Perfector, a $29 gloss that Kate Middleton has been seen on camera wearing.
This lip gloss balm hybrid plumps and hydrates while leaving a wash of color. Formulated with shea butter, it comes in six colors and has a cushion applicator for easy spreading.
To apply the product, either wear it alone on your bare lips or use it on your lipstick for extra shimmer. Take it a step further by lining your lips with a slightly darker shade.
While the Clarins Natural Lip Perfector is fantastic, it's not very budget-friendly at $29. Close alternatives include Naturium's Phyto-Glow Lip Balm, which costs $10.
