Kim Kardashian West single-handedly ushered in the era of the contour (or should we say, kontour?), so it鈥檚 no surprise that we continue to look to the makeup maven for beauty inspo. While Kardashian鈥檚 makeup routine is rumored to cost around $1,200 (!!), the entrepreneur keeps plenty of drugstore favorites in her makeup drawer鈥nd her go-to mascara costs less than $6!

Ariel Tejada, makeup artist to the sisters Kardashian and Jenner, dished on some of Kim鈥檚 beauty secrets to Us Weekly, and he revealed that the newly platinum blonde beauty relies on L鈥橭real鈥檚 Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($6) for her legendary lashes.

Yep, even though she鈥檚 a bona fide beauty mogul herself these days (KKW Beauty聽made $14.4 million within minutes of its initial launch in June!), the soon-to-be mom of three loves herself a super affordable mascara. Earlier this year, the iconic brand confirmed that this mascara is the best-selling in the U.S., and we have a feeling it鈥檚 in no small part thanks to Kardashian鈥檚 devotion.
