Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A strappy, backless bodysuit that'll make your next candid 'gram look so darn effortless. It already knows you'll post right away and never look ~back~.

    Promising review: "I love it! Just throw it on with some high-waisted shorts, and you are ready for any summer pub crawl, concert, or festival. The material is super soft and stretchy. The fit is perfect; I ordered my normal shirt size medium." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 11 colors and patterns).

    2. A Tarte shimmering highlighter specifically designed with a glossy, glass skin–effect in mind so all your angles boast a dewy complexion. Reviewers even say their makeup ✨glows✨ when using this!


    Promising review: "This gloss has changed the way my whole face looks after I do all my face makeup and powders. I take my sponge and bounce this product around my eyes, cheeks, brows, nose and chin, and there is just a huge difference in my makeup's appearance. My skin has this wet, healthy GLOW and I AM IN LOVE!!!" —Nicole

    Get it from Tarte for $16.

    3. A ruffled tunic dress to cheaply hop on the neon trend without blowing hard-earned cash just for the 'gram (though...worth it). Plus, it's so comfy you'll want to wear it all 👏 the 👏 time 👏.

    Promising review: "This dress is really adorable. The quality is exceptional for the price. I’m a big boutique shopper and I would have bought this dress for $60 at a boutique. The material is soft, with a little stretch." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 19 colors).

    4. A Coty Airspun setting powder, because this'll ensure outside selfies during ~Golden Hour~ are totally shine-free, matte, and f l a w l e s s. And you better BELIEVE this keeps your makeup perfectly in place all darn day.

    Promising review: "I can't begin to say how much I love this product. I've used this powder for nearly 30 years, and I have never once been disappointed. People comment on my complexion all the time by telling me how good my skin is (it's because of this). This covers acne well without being cakey and looking like makeup. My skin is typically very oily to the point where I have to reapply pressed powder several times throughout the day — not so with this! I don't even carry a compact when I use this, because there is no need to ever add more." —Michelle Anderson

    Get it from Amazon for $5.67 (available in six shades).

    5. A printed bucket hat for an effortlessly stylish picture, no matter how your hair looks that day. Haven't washed your mane in four days? Your followers will never know.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This is a perfect summer bucket hat. It fits really well and I've gotten so many compliments on it! I 100% recommend!" —lexiii12

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $19 (available in six patterns).

    6. A pair of wildly-popular, high-waisted leggings that'll serve as the perfect humblebrag during the one day a year you finally make it to the gym — it deserves proof. Did you spend the whole time taking #instafit pictures instead of running? None of their business.

    Promising review: "I may be the pickiest person I know when I comes to leggings. I literally live in them. I wear them daily and even for work! I have a few pairs of Lululemons, but why buy Lulu when these are only $16 and are really nice! My main concern when it comes to leggings is the waistband. I like seamless so it doesn't cut into my stomach. These are seamless and so comfortable! The material is nice and the black is NOT see-through. If you don't want to spend $90-$100 on designer leggings, then these are a great alternative!" —K.K.

    Get them from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 32 styles, with and without pockets).

    I will not rest until I look like Jules.

    Promising review: "These are the BEST GLITTER SHADOWS ON THE MARKET! I have five colors and all are gorgeous. They're surprisingly blendable for a liquid and minimal fallout of the glitter, almost none. The formula is great and you don't have to worry about glitter primer. It stays all day." —Kaytlen

    Get it from Amazon for $24 (available in 22 shades).

    8. A floral print top with dramatic sleeves, because this'll instantly dress up your old jeans so your latest OOTD looks totally brand-new. No need to buy a whole new outfit.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $22.99 (available in sizes 0X–3X).

    9. A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo for brightening your blonde hair to fully platinum in just one to three minutes. Translation: your tresses will always look fresh out of the salon in every picture you take — and your followers will never be the wiser.

    Just don't use it for more than three minutes (once a week), because then your hair will turn lavender (unless you're into that, which some reviewers are!!!).

    Promising review: "I have platinum blonde hair and harsh water. My hair easily gets discolored no matter how little I wash it. I have used a number of high-end purple shampoos and thought they were all great quality. Until now. I didn't realize what I was missing in my life. I left this shampoo on for maybe three minutes and now my hair looks freshly-toned to an icy blonde. I'll never live my life again without this shampoo." —Kassandra

    Get it from Amazon for $10.35+ (available in six sizes).

    For more info, check out "If You Color Your Hair Blonde, You Need This Purple Shampoo".

    10. A pair of metal-framed sunglasses that'll help you look effortlessly cool and on-trend in every single selfie you take. It's almost like you didn't take 100 pictures before deciding on The One.

    Promising review: "I had these EXACT glasses except they were RayBans and I paid like 175$ for them, then I lost them. So being very sad and very broke I decided to get these as a replacement until can afford another pair of RayBans. Wow, they exceeded my expectations!!! They look IDENTICAL to the RayBan style ! I get so many compliments on them! They are my new favorite pair!" —justanothercollegestudent

    Get them from Amazon for $12.95 (available in 12 styles).

    11. A backless satin gown so your whole evening is one long, successful photoshoot. This begs, nay, DEMANDS that you strike a pose every two minutes. Is this how Angelina Jolie felt in Mr. & Mrs. Smith? I believe so.,

    Promising review: "I fell in love with a dress like this on another website but it was out of my budget. I went on a hunt and found this one. I was hesitant at first, because the price was too good to be true so I expected the dress not to be so great. WELL I WAS WRONG! This dress fits beautiful, I felt like royalty! I bought this for a photoshoot with my kids and I am obsessed." —Barbara L

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 29 colors).

    12. A teeth-whitening pen, because there's a lot to smile about when your pearly whites are extra brilliant — and if all your laughter is captured in a candid, so be it. Plus, its soft-bristle brush is easier to use on uneven teeth than strips, thanks to its 360° application.

    Did I mention it's mint-flavored?! AND reviewers say it doesn't cause sensitivity!

    Promising review: "Due to prior experiences with Crest and other whitening strips, I always deal with tooth sensitivity even after the first use. Naturally now, I only use this pen every other day thinking I was going to deal with the same issue and surprisingly I don't. I actually really like the way it whitens my teeth and love the fact that I'm not dealing with any tooth sensitivity pains." —Claudia Garcia

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    13. A pair of high-top Converse sneakers for not only a cool addition to any outfit, but now you'll be able to stay on your feet for as 👏 long 👏 as 👏 it 👏 takes 👏 to get ~the shot~. Happy feet = happy face.

    Promising review: "These have become my new favorite pair of sneakers. They’re very comfortable, I love the way they look with either shorts or jeans! I normally wear a size 6 in sneakers, but I got a size 5.5, because I know Converse is always a little big on me. These fit perfectly!" —Tiffany

    Get them from Amazon for $28.55+ (available in sizes 5–11 and eight colors).

    14. A tub of Elizavecca carbonated clay mask that, yes, will let you show off your extensive ~skincare~ routine, but also how likeable is a face full of bubbles? Answer: VERY.

    Aside from its great selfie potential, this is great for blackhead removal, exfoliating, and removing excess oil!

    Promising review: "This is my favorite mask ever! I am impatient and can't usually wait for other masks that take 20 minutes to dry (and I hate the drying, pulling feeling). I put this on while my shower is warming up and it starts bubbling immediately! It's easy to rinse off and leaves skin feeling extremely clean. My face is super smooth for at least two days after using it. I have large pores with lots of blackheads and sebum, and this definitely reduces the amount of visible blackheads. And I feel less oily. Great product! Great price!" —Abby

    Get it from Amazon for $9.54.

    15. A snakeskin-printed skirt so you can transition one of summer's biggest trends well into your fall grid. Pumpkins will make an excellent backdrop for this, I'm just saying.

    Promising review: "The hot print of the season. The material is lightweight and flowy without being see-through. The fit is right, and the fabric has just a hint of stretch. The pattern is even nicer than the photo, and it went through the washer and dryer just fine. I’d love to see more prints in this skirt." —Stephanie C.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and six patterns).

    16. A tube of Glossier Brow Flick, because your caterpillars will look SO. GOOD. in your selfies — and it'll look totally natural, thanks to this tool's ultra-fine tip. Bold brows make any picture 🔥; it's just science.

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I cannot do makeup to save my life, but this made it so easy to learn how to make my brows look amazing (I have next to none). It looks natural and makes it so easy to get the shape and fullness I want. Plus, there is no transfer, flakiness, or smearing." —Kim

    Get it from Glossier for $18 (available in three shades).

    Promising review: Love these! They’re super cute and not too heavy. I have super sensitive ears and I was able to wear these all day without them irritating me." —Karly Dellasilva

    Get them from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in six colors).

    18. A winged eyeliner stamp that'll require a minimum of 10 story appearances to show the world you have FINALLY mastered the cat-eye. They don't need to know your secrets.

    It has two sides: one that has a stamp to make the wings for us (!!!!) and another side to draw a steady, smudge-proof line that's extremely hard to mess up thanks to its thick felt tip.

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying this isn't my first cat-eye rodeo. I've tried the taping method, normal liquid liner, plastic winged stamping devices, stencils, all of it! So when I saw this I thought, meh, why not give it a shot. Well, this gem arrived and I immediately had to try it out, all while laughing at how terrible this would probably turn out....but to my surprise it was perfect. I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN ABLE TO DO A CAT-EYE IN UNDER 10 MINUTES, LET ALONE THE TWO MINUTES THIS TOOK TO DO! There were no sloppy streaks that I had to touch up or anything you would expect. Just a clean, crisp line." —LadyMeow

    Get a pack of two (one for each eye) from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three sizes).

    19. Or! A design-stamp eyeliner to easily add a VERY picture-worthy addition of hearts, moons, flowers, or stars to your ~aesthetic~. No tutorial necessary — this'll do all the work for you.

    It has two sides: one is the stamp, and the other a traditional, black liquid eyeliner.

    Promising review: "This is super cute! It's comparable to the Milk Makeup star stamp, which are around $12. There's a good amount of pigment, goes on easy, and comes off easily. It's a really good dupe for the Milk Makeup star stamp!" —Torie Mae

    Get a pack of all four from Amazon for $12.99, or an individual stamp for $5.99 each.

    ANDDD it's vegan and cruelty-free! It's extra vivid on already-bleached hair, but creates colorful highlights on darker hair.

    Promising review: "Holy crap, this product is absolutely amazing!!! I love the fact that it required zero bleach, it smells SO good, and made my hair incredibly soft. I wasn't sure what to expect due to my hair being naturally dark (above) and previously dyed purple, but Arctic Fox came through! I'm so pleasantly surprised. I'm absolutely in love AND it's vegan! 110% will use again!!!" —Rachel Martinez

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes and 22 shades).

    22. A pair of high-waisted bike shorts with POCKETS that you'll be able to wear in an unlimited amount of ways (while always staying super comfy). Aka you can pair them with your fave pullover for Monday's OOTD, and with your blazer the very next day. Talk about versatility.

    Promising review: "I can walk in these all day. I’ve been wanting to find a tall ankle boot with a pointed toe and everything came up short...literally. These are so comfortable and the heel height is perfect. They look so good and stylish." —Speck0192

    24. A HerStyler hair repair serum to transform dull, damaged hair into locks that S H I N E, thanks to vitamin E, aloe vera, and argan oil. You would be doing yourself a disservice not to Insta story a slo-mo hair toss.,

    Promising review: "I found this product through a BuzzFeed article for those with frizzy hair and THIS PRODUCT DID NOT DISAPPOINT, PEOPLE! I put this serum through the ringer; I got this to stand up to Bay Area fog AND the nasty, humid heat wave we got a couple weeks ago. No frizz, no extra curls. Nothing! On top of that, it made my hair super glossy. I'm very impressed. Heads-up though, a little goes a long way. One pump is enough to cover my hair and I have medium-length hair. Also, it can make your hair look oily if you use too much. I do have oily hair so working on my ends first then working to my roots works for me." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    25. A pack of seamless underwear, because these'll make sure you can work every. single. angle *without* worrying about panty lines (or thong wedgies, for that matter). Welcome to a world where lighting is never a concern.


    Promising review: "These are the best. My Victoria’s Secret no-shows have definitely been replaced (and for much less money). I was really looking for underwear that I could wear to work out that wouldn’t show lines through my leggings, wouldn’t ride up like my VS ones, would breathe a little, and would stay comfortable all day. These were it. I’d definitely recommend these to anyone. Especially for those who wear a lot of leggings and want an option beyond a thong." —Rebecca

If you're looking to lengthen your eyelashes, this is the one. They look so beautiful and long that they give the appearance of false eyelashes. My eyelashes touch my eyebrows when I use this! I doubt I'll find anything better." —anjanette

I have never bought shoes on Amazon before and was worried that the fit and or quality would make me regret my purchase. But truly it was far from it. The heel is the perfect height to give you a lift and wide enough for you to feel secure! I'm happy to report that I have no blisters and I can't wait to wear them out again!" —cissyjworstell
