Simply put, it's our job to find the best beauty products out there for you. From the newest serum to the hottest lipstick color to the dry shampoo that will change your life, we will find it, test it, and let you know what we think. We're not complaining. It's a pretty fun gig, and we'll volunteer to be beauty guinea pigs any day.

But one of the cool things to come out of this is finding out what products you're loving and buying. It helps us figure out what you want to learn more about and what you're into so we can bring even more personalized recs to you.

Because we share a lot of our favorites with you every single day, we recognize it might be hard to keep up. So we've decided to put together a handy weekly list of what we love and what you love—consider this a CliffsNotes, one-stop shop of what's really trending and worth adding to your cart at this very moment.

This week, we're taking a look at beauty products on Amazon. For those not in the know, Amazon is actually a great place to shop for highly-rated makeup products. It's so convenient and there's a lot of variety. Take a look at what the Who What Wear universe (including editors, staffers, and readers) is obsessed with right now, and if you don't see a new favorite on this list, we'd love to know. Send us a DM.

Sign up for The List where you'll find exclusive discounts, opportunities to co-create products for our fashion brands, and a central place to manage your Who What Wear newsletters. Additionally, as you "heart" products and authors and "bookmark" articles on our site, they'll populate in your Favorites Lists. As we roll out new features, you'll always be the first to know.
