Meghan Markle Put This $6 Mascara on Our Radar, But the Brand's Lash Serum Has Our Attention Now
Many would argue that the fastest way to achieve big, bold, beautiful lashes is by applying a few swipes of a good mascara — and if it happens to be a duchess-endorsed drugstore favorite, we'd back up that debate, too. Back in 2018, celebrity makeup artist Lydia Sellers told Hello magazine that Meghan Markle first turned her onto Maybelline's Lash Sensational Mascara, and since then, the $6 volumizing formula has been viralized by TikTokers, causing it to sell in droves.

Following the hype of the original best-seller, the mascara's new ingredient list now includes conditioning rosehip oil and mineral pigments. But if you really want to reap maximum lash-nourishing benefits and maintain a healthy base, you may want to turn to a lesser known item from the same highly-coveted collection.
The Maybelline Lash Sensational Boosting Eyelash Serum is what Amazon reviewers are calling a "game changer" for lengthening their sparse lashes. It's infused with a conditioning complex of arginine and provitamin B5 to not only nourish lashes for extreme softness and growth, but also protect them and prevent fallout for an ultra-full, flirty effect. The result is lashes that are thick, supple, and oh-so-soft.

The brand claims you'll see results in just four weeks when it's used as directed (apply twice-a-day; once in the morning and once at night), but some shoppers swear they've noticed a significant difference sooner than expected. "After using this product for a couple of weeks, I am amazed at how much length this serum has given me!" wrote one five-star reviewer. "Even from the first application I noticed a little length change. It's a great primer to put on before applying mascara and it definitely will grow out your lashes!"
Other reviewers not only report impressive results, but also love that the serum's formula is super gentle compared to pricier competitors. "I like this product because it doesn't irritate my eyes," wrote one. "Many other eyelash boosting serums including Latisse, which I've tried, have caused redness to my eyes and eyelids. This product is gentle and works."
Shop the $9 Maybelline Lash Sensational Boosting Eyelash Serum if you're looking to achieve sky-high, healthy lashes in a hurry — and while you're at it, don't forget to pick up a tube of TikTok's favorite duchess-approved mascara, too.
