Both duchesses are big fans of the luxury British fragrance brand; Middleton even used Jo Malone candles during her wedding. If you’re not sure which fragrance to try, this sale-exclusive set includes five mini bottles, including the Wood Sage & Sea Salt scent Markle once declared as a favorite on her now-defunct blog, The Tig.
Jo Malone Cologne Collection Set ($87, a $115 value)
The Duchess of Sussex wore Tilbury’s iconic Pillow Talk lippie on the cover of Time magazine in 2021. Scoop up this set, and you’ll score the original Matte Revolution Lipstick, Lip Cheat Lip Pencil and Hyaluronic Happikiss Lipstick, all in the universally flattering color.
Pillow Talk Lip Kit ($59, $92 value)
Markle sung the celebrity facialist’s praises in a 2016 blog post on The Tig, saying she gets a “homegrown glow” from Somerville’s exfoliator. Several items from the brand are included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Aale, including this highly rated anti-wrinkle cream that’s close to half off.

The Duchess of Cambridge is said to rely on the brand’s lash-boosting Hypnôse Drama Mascara, which claims to “turn up the volume of your lashes six times.” The Nordstrom special sale set includes two of them, plus a vitamin-infused primer and eye makeup remover.

The celeb-loved makeup artist is also a favorite of both duchesses’ — Middleton was once spotted at a London department store buying the brand’s $49 tinted moisturizer, while her sister-in-law praised the “dewy glow” of Mercier’s illuminating primer in a 2016 interview with Beauty Banter. The brand’s Hydrating Pure Canvas primer gives a similar result, at a bargain sale price.
Hydrating Pure Canvas Primer Duo ($39, a $63 value)
To complete her wedding-day makeup, the Duchess of Sussex wore Dior Addict Lip Glow Balm in a barely-there coral shade, according to makeup artist Daniel Martin. The product’s included in this sale-exclusive set, but in a pink shade — and you also get a travel-size plumping gloss and lip serum.
Dior Addict Lip Set ($58, an $84 value)
As for the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding look, she relied on Bobbi Brown products (and did her own makeup!). This set includes a luxury palette of eight shadows and a mini version of the brand’s popular Smokey Eye Mascara.
Luxe Essentials Eye Palette Set ($65, a $203 value)
The company’s cult-fave Orgasm blush is loved by many a celeb, and Markle told Beauty Banter it was one of her top five products she couldn’t live without, calling it the “perfect rosy flush tone.” It’s normally $32 for one blush, so grab this bundle of two fast before it’s gone.
