While online shopping is our favorite activity, we can acknowledge the potential downsides too. Our biggest fear is spending our money on something that ends up being lower quality in real life or falls apart just outside of the return window.
How can we feel more confident in our purchases? Reading reviews helps, but we really know we’ve got a winning product on our hands when a literal member of the royal family has used it. Scroll down to see royal-approved fashion and beauty picks, as used by Princess Kate, Meghan Markle, Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth II!
Le Specs Air Heart Sunglasses
These shades became instantly iconic when Markle was spotted wearing them to her baby shower back in 2019!
Biotulin Supreme Skin Gel
Kate is allegedly such a big fan of this anti-aging essential that it was reported she even recommended it to America’s version of royalty, Michelle Obama!
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream
This cream, which has been a beloved beauty product for almost a century, recently popped back into the spotlight as Prince Harry revealed in his novel, Spare, that Diana often used it on her lips!
Essie Ballet Slippers Nail Polish
Markle reportedly wore this sheer, pale pink nail polish on her wedding day — but she’s not the only royal fan. The late queen reportedly wore it often since 1989!
Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara
The secret to Kate’s dramatic, smoky eye? Allegedly, the Princess of Wales’ go-to is this volumizing
“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star and budding beauty entrepreneur Lisa Rinna is best known in the retail world for her long partnership with QVC, but her makeup line, which began with lip kits, is heading to Amazon for its first venture away from her direct-to-consumer model.
“It’s fabulous. I mean, who doesn’t shop on Amazon? To me, it’s the easiest thing in the world. You can literally go on Rinna Beauty and press a button. To me, it’s a dream come true,” she told WWD en route to film Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen, adding that this is only the start of her retail expansion plans. “My goal is to have it be in Sephora or Ulta. My goal is to have it worldwide.”

For Amazon, Rinna Beauty, which launched during the pandemic in 2020, has signed with Packable, a third-party marketplace retailer. Of the partnership, Cheryl Krakow, president of SEL Beauty, the distributor of Rinna Beauty, said: “We are immensely proud to partner with Packable, knowing that they deliver exceptional service in a timely manner, and will allow us to grow our business even further. The success of rinnabeauty.com has wildly exceeded our expectations and leveraging a partnership to sell on Amazon will maximize product accessibility efficiently to a new client base.”
As for if it could ever go to QVC, Rinna added: “You know, I want to keep this separate from that. I’ve already done that so I’d like to do this in a different way. Now it’s time for Amazon. I always believe that you continue to grow.”
Company sales are in the eight figures, according to a spokesman, who did not disclose specific numbers, citing the lip plumpers released earlier this year as “a huge success.”
