    Amazon has a list of products called "Movers and Shakers", which is pretty much just fancy talk for things that are currently ~trending~.

    Here are some of the coolest and most useful things on the list this week:

    1. A silky synthetic kabuki foundation brush to blend, blend, blend your makeup for a flawless, airbrushed-like application.

    Promising review: "I never used a brush like this for foundation — I've been using my fingers to blend for the longest. I decided to check Amazon to see the prices of brushes comparable to Sephora and chose this one. It did not fail. It comes out great! I used the stippling method of application and used just a touch of foundation. There weren't any bristles left behind. The brush is super soft and not abrasive. Definitely would recommend; absolutely worth the price." —A.R.

    Price: $7.90

    2. A graphic nursing pillow you can use to feed the love of your life when they're a hungry caterpillar or when it's time for them to sit up and be a big kid.

    Promising review: "The boppy is a great all-around, multi-use baby pillow. I'm glad to have the traditional boppy because it's great for baby to lounge in and for tummy time. The black and white brocade pattern cover is so pretty and has held up really well in the wash as well." —Super JuJu-Bean

    Price: $35.99 (available in two colors)

    3. A copy of To All The Boys I've Loved Before so you can educate yourself on the newest Netflix fad and get your daily dose of what is, essentially, a teenage rom-com with diverse characters you can absolutely fall in love with over and over again.

    Promising review: "Oh boy! It’s been a while since I’ve picked up a young adult book to read. I decided to listen to the audiobook, and immediately I found Lara Jean to be a delightful character. One of the things I adored about this story is the family dynamic with Lara Jean and her siblings and father. I found the journey to be realistic and filled with first crushes, heartache and the usual growing pains. For a 16-year-old hopeless romantic, this whole letter situation can be so awkward and embarrassing. I love how Lara Jean ends up dealing with everything going on in her life. I’m so glad there’s a sequel, because I definitely needed more when I reached the end." —Grace MyBookSnack

    Price: $8.78

    4. A bottle of Rain-X shower cleaner that'll remove soap, scum, and hard water stains, because you're tired of your shower doors not being squeaky clean.,

    Promising review: "I'm in complete awe. I've tried everything under the sun to get the watermarks and soap scum off my shower door. Nothing has come close to giving me these results! It took me an hour to do the whole door (in and out) but I love the results. Wonderful product for tough shower door stains!" —L. Reilly

    Price: $11.91

    5. A stemless wine glass for living your best cat lover life while enjoying a hearty dose of red wine after a long day.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my daughter-in-law's birthday and she loved it! It's especially nice that it doesn't have a stem so the cats can't accidentally knock it over, because you know they're going to check out what's inside. They are cats after all! It's really cute for cat and wine lovers!" —RG

    Price: $14.58

    6. A money clip and wallet with RFID-blocking technology to carry all of your important cards and cash on you wherever you go (without taking up tons of space).

    It has three card slots, one ID display window, one change pocket, and one money clip.

    Promising review: "A great little wallet. I love the magnet money clip. It has amazing strength and can keep any amount of bills you need, plus any other papers, receipts, or business cards you care to stuff in there. Another awesome feature is the pull-tab. I have no issues keeping my ATM card, credit card, medical insurance card, business cards, etc in there. The pull-tab is way easier than trying to dig stuff out of tight slots with your fingernails." —Big Daddy

    Price: $18.99 (available in 40 colors)

    7. A trendy AF flannel shirt made out of brushed cotton to wear when your inner hipster (and lumberjack) is just dying to make an appearance.,

    Promising review: "These shirts are well made and super soft. They get softer with washing. They are well constructed and work as a work shirt or as a night out shirt. The colors do not fade (washed about 10 times so far), but I have only washed them in cold water. If you remove from the dryer promptly, they do not wrinkle to the point they need ironing. I love that the collars are fixed so they do not lose their shape. These have plenty of room to be comfortable but do not look bulky, and they run true to size. This is my new go-to flannel shirt." —Cathy Coleman

    Price: $24.99 (available in sizes S–6XL and 23 colors)

    8. A really awesome puzzle game for your dog, because you're trying to make them into the smartest four-legged creature so you can cash in on their future fame.

    Your dog has to move the seven compartments with their snout to get a sweet, sweet treat!

    Promising review: "I bought this for my one-year-old cocker spaniel. The first time she tried it, it took her about two minutes to solve the puzzle. Soon after, though, she did it in seconds. The puzzle is sturdy and well-designed. In order to get to the treats, your dog has to first move the sliding part away and then move the cover off the place where the treat is. If the dog does this in the wrong order, he won't be able to access all the treats. I noticed over the course of about three days, my dog figured all this out and now she is quite methodical in the way she moves the parts. But she still solves it in about 20 seconds but still likes solving the puzzle and getting the treats, even though it's not much of a challenge anymore." —Nellie Schulz

    Price: $9.36

    9. A pair of garden gloves with Wolverine-like claws that'll really get into the dirt of your home garden without the use of a shovel!

    Promising review: "I’m surprised at how well these work and they're super easy to clean. I’m one to dig right into the mud with my hands because I don’t like how restrictive tools are. Plus I’m always afraid of damaging roots when I’m transplanting. With these I can feel what’s going on in the dirt around me, but keep my hands clean and nails intact." —Mek

    Price: $3.99

    10. A modern-looking bronze and rubber paper towel holder so you won't have to pick up a whole roll with dirty or super wet hands in order to tear off the one sheet you need.

    The rubber provides friction so you can tear off one paper towel with just one hand!

    Promising review: "It has a weighted base with a soft layer on the bottom so it can stay put on the counter and doesn't scratch. I can get a roll of towels on it without having to unscrew the top. Easy to unroll and tear off a towel. Simple, but perfect to coordinate with other stainless steel in the kitchen; doesn't take up extra counter space for a large base. I don't want my paper towel holder to be an obtrusive feature of my kitchen!" —Patches' Mom

    Price: $32.92

    11. A cat litter scooper that'll get all of your cat's poop out of the litter box without it sticking to the aluminum, because who has time to fiddle with sifting when you don't have to?,

    It even comes with a holder you can stick onto the wall so it never gets lost!

    Promising review: "Far exceeded my expectations. SUCH an improvement over the flimsy plastic one we've been using. It quickly picks up significantly more doo-doo and pee clumps thanks to the rigid design and large scoop. The included plastic hanger is a great addition. It easily adhered to the side of our litter trash can. We were often misplacing our old scoop or would set it on top of the trash can, which was getting litter dust all over the top. No longer an issue with this new scoop and hanger. Quality product." —B. Constans

    Price: $12.95

    12. An academic planner so you can stay on top of all the assignments and projects your professor assigned that you absolutely CAN NOT forget — they're worth half your grade!

    Each month is separated by tabs, and it has full pages for each month as well as a each week, plus daily breakdowns for essential planning!

    Promising review: "I love this planner! Its perfect, has a full month and daily slots. I work as a substitute teacher and this comes into a date when my old planner runs out! I love it and will be ordering another for personal dates!" —PJM

    Price: $9.99

    13. A tin of natural cream pomade that'll slick and style down your hair while keeping it completely matte and super soft.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. Even up to the quality of the sturdy metal container, this stuff is solid all the way around. I was afraid that the medium hold wouldn't be enough for my stubborn hair, but this fit the bill perfectly. This will be my new product of choice! Would make a very solid Christmas gift or stocking stuffer!" —Deal Guy

    Price: $18

    14. A mini basketball hoop to use whenever you're working from home and just need a brain break with a bit of physical activity. Hoop life is forever.

    It has an easy setup and a shatter-resistant backboard just in case your kid (or yourself) wants to dunk like Mike.

    Promising review: "I love this mini basketball hoop! I bought it for myself three years ago for my college dorm room and it was great! Everyone loved this thing! The plastic has taken a beating, but still looks brand new! Even after many of my friends dunked on this thing it still looks great! It's a high-quality hoop worth every penny! The hoop has a foam backing and can hang on the back of almost every door (I never had a problem with it not fitting). Even after heavy use I never noticed any damage to the door or the hoop." —HonestReviews

    Price: $29.99

    15. A retro-style pencil dress that'll capture the true spirit of Mad Men with every wear, especially if you whip it out during date night.,

    Promising review: "This dress is all the way perfect! I just tried it on and now I need somewhere to go! The purple is gorgeous and I want other colors. This dress is elegant and still sexy! It hugs all your curves and makes you feel so good!" —Reese

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and 15 colors)

    16. A portable toddler cot to keep at the ready for whenever your little ones want to have a sleepover with their friends so you can make them as comfy as possible.

    Promising review: "We bought three of these for our youngest kids. We thought they would be good for hotel stays, traveling, camping, sleepovers and to keep handy in our master bedroom for when our little bed hogs make there way in our room in the middle of the night. The kids love them! They seem well made and durable and I appreciate the spare sheet and carry bag. They obviously have no padding, but the kids don’t seem to mind. We use preschool nap mats on them and they fit well." —KG621

    Price: $24.99+ (available in three colors)

    17. A set of iron-on denim patches that'll save all of your favorite (but tattered) jeans from being thrown out like last week's trash.

    They come in three denim washes and are machine-washable up to 40 degrees, too.

    Promising review: "I always buy the same jeans. I adore the brand and style but they seem to wear out in the same spots over time, every time. I ordered these iron-on patches to not only patch the old grubby jeans for at home wear but to pre-patch the new jeans I've selected. They are reasonably priced, packaged well, and easy to use. You can cut them down to any size and the package comes with three colors to choose from. I'll add that they came promptly and the owner seems sincerely concerned that customers are extremely satisfied. If you need patches, buy these! You will not regret it." —Jennifer

    Price: $5.29 (available in three washes)

    18. A pair of glasses to protect your beautiful eyeballs from blasted strain caused from the blue light on computer screens.

    Promising review: "These glasses are great. They look sharp and they're not tinted so much that they alter color perception. I work in an office setting and after just one day of wearing these glasses I noticed an improvement in my eye health. My eyes no longer hurt, water, itch, or feel bleached out after staring at a computer screen for hours on end." —Ariele Monzo

    Price: $12.99 (available in perscriptions 0.00x–2.50x)

    19. A set of face paints, because it's never too early to prep for Halloween, plus you can practice your complicated clown face during your alone time.

    They're great for sensitive skin and come with 12 vibrant colors, two glitter gels, and two brushes to apply.

    Promising review: "Love it! I wanted to try face paints for the first time as I'm experienced in costume makeup and I found just what I needed with this set. I do have eczema and overall just very sensitive skin, but the paint didn't cause any problems at all. The little pots are rich in color and very easy to build. I did buy my own set of cheap artist brushes, but the ones included will do a decent job for small designs." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $16.09

    20. A copy of Fifty Shades Freed, because let's be honest here — this movie is actually your guilty pleasure and you're invested in whether or not Anastasia and Christian actually get their steamy happy ending!

    Plus it's unrated, which means more sexy times you can fantasize about with bae... if that's your thing.

    Promising review: "The love story continues with a romantic wedding but continues with very suspenseful happenings to Christian and Anastasia. The final installment completes the trilogy of love, sex, and romance with a bit of suspense added to the mix. For those who have read the book multiple times, as I have, the movies have obviously been pared down to capture the most important storylines." —LadyDi

    Price: $14.53 (also available on Blu-ray).
