    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 found on the list this week:

    1. Tinted brow gel to define one of the best features on your face and get your eyebrows on fleek.

    Promising Review: "I was really skeptical at first, but I'm glad I took a chance. I literally have no eyebrows, so I usually use powder to fill them in, but a lot of times it looks way too harsh. This fills, shapes, and is also natural looking. I am very untalented and used an eyebrow stencil. The key is to wait for it to set a little then brush it so it blends. I'm so happy I no longer have to worry about my brows rubbing off. I've found my new go-to." –DJNemo

    Price: $22. Available in 5 shades.

    2. A pack of Bioré pore strips to get those pesky blackheads off your nose. You'll probably wind up looking at the aftermath because it's so grossly satisfying.,

    Promising Review: "Wow, I was surprised what these pulled from my nose! Blackheads, whiteheads, dirt, and even my 3rd grade homework assignment I thought my dog had ate!" –Right Stuff

    Price: $7.49. Includes 14 strips.

    3. A super cute duckworth duck for your pup to either cuddle or chew to death. Their choice.,

    Promising Review: "We rescued a sweet boy from a shelter this week, He doesn't seem to have ever been in a home or had any toy ever. When we gave this to him today and reinforced that this was his a few times, he quickly started carrying it with him everywhere he went in the house. The cutest was when he carried it upstairs to go to bed that night, then I found him cuddling with it sleeping." –love2save8


    4. An adorable unicorn backpack that can carry any and every magical thing your little munchkin desires.

    Promising Review: "We absolutely love it! I ordered it for my daughter to start pre-school and she hasn't taken it off! She is in love, guys! This is the perfect size for a toddler or young kids. There is a name tag spot and a place to put your drink cup. You can even fit a wide-ruled notebook in it if need be. It's just perfect sizing." –LilmisKay

    Price: $16

    5. The Outsiders—a classic book to remind yourself of that wild teenage angst and the meaning of found family. Stay golden, Ponyboy.

    Nothing gold stays, but this book does.

    Promising Review: "I have been teaching for many years and this novel continues be a favorite for so many reasons. At first the students think this is going to be a cheesy story about nerdy kids from the pages of history, but by the time we get to the fire in the church, they are hooked. They have empathy for Ponyboy, Soda, and Johnny. They appreciate their struggles in dysfunctional families that have such a history of loss and lack of privilege – it creates such genuine discussion. Not a dry eye in my little class when Johnny gets the copy of Gone With The Wind in the hospital." –moviegal

    Price: $6.38+. Also available on Kindle.

    6. An amazing U-shaped body pillow for those nights when you just can't get comfy with the baby bump and need something to cuddle.,

    Promising Review: "Love this pillow! It wraps around your body giving you support. It's awesome because when you roll over you don't have to move your pillow from one side to the next because it's the same on both sides. It is extremely comfortable! I even brought it to the hospital to have my son and it made the hospital bed much more comfortable." –L. Cormie

    Price: $53.99+. Also available in blue or pink.

    7. A pair of lotus flower earrings that are so dope and delicate you'll never want to take them off.

    Promising Review: "These earrings are so cute! I get tons of compliments on them. I have fairly sensitive ears, and these don't bother me at all, even after wearing them all day at work." –Anne

    Price: $6.99

    8. A giant pineapple float just perfect to lie back, relax, and ~fruit~ around in while catching some sun rays.,

    Fruit around, like fuck around? No? Okay.

    Promising Review: "Bought this for an adult birthday pool party and it was definitely a hit. It was able to hold two adults, didn't lose any air pressure –especially in desert sun and heat, and it looks great floating around in the pool. It's HUGE and made of very thick material. Kids would love it." –Amazon Customer

    Price: $19.99

    9. A completely innocent coloring book for those days when you really just feel like dicking around.

    Promising Review: "I ordered this for my best friend. She needs a pick-me-up and a good laugh. It's hilariously artistic." –Courtney Oldham

    Price: $4.79.

    10. An Otamatone music toy that makes the craziest melodic sounds that almost resemble that DJ Khaled song you love so much.,

    "Wild, wild thoughts...."

    Promising Review: " I love this thing! I am a huge fan of wacky musical instruments and toys for grown-ups. The Otomatone could not be more adorable when you squeeze his little cheeks. I annoy everyone with my whiny little attempts at songs, but it never fails to cheer people up! He sits right on my desk and never fails to make me smile." –Ally W.

    Price: $25.99

    11. Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto to help you master the beautiful art of BBQ because few things are worse than burnt meat.

    Promising Review: "This is the best book on BBQ I have ever seen. It delivers what it promises: a huge 'how to' guide to BBQ. It's not about recipes, it's about the techniques, knowledge, culture and lore of BBQ. The famous pitmaster knows his craft, that's obvious before reading the book, but he is also a good teacher and that is not something all good cooks, chefs or pitmasters can do. He explains in great detail the science, the tips, and everything you need to know about BBQ to start or improve your cue production. The passion really pours out of the pages, which is a big bonus." –Mateus de Castro

    $17.04. Also available on Kindle.

    12. An old fashioned style ice cream maker that you don't have to crank for smooth, sweet, creamy goodness.

    Promising Review: "I grew up making homemade ice cream with my family -- sometimes even using the old crank style -- and wanted to continue the tradition with my own family using my grandma's recipe. We have used this ice cream maker multiple times this summer, and It has held up and worked perfectly! We love it, especially the kids." –TONYAJNICKELL

    Price: $36.75

    13. A pretty floral shirt with cut-out shoulders because that's totally the trend now, and it's summer, so why not show some skin?

    Promising Review: "The fabric is soft to the touch and has excellent quality in knit material and stitching! The floral design has vibrant colors, and the ruffled sleeve, as well as the cut-out shoulders, make this top unique and head-turning! It is very versatile and so comfortable! I can pair it with anything, plus I can dress it with up heels for evening occasions. It's easily one of my favorite tops!" –Linda Burleson

    $8.99+. Also available in blue, pink, and other colors, sizes S-XXL.

    14. This cool cotton candy maker. Why go to a carnival or circus for some good ol' cotton candy when you can make it yourself at home?

    Sweet, fluffy goodness.

    Promising Review: "This worked great and was a lot of fun. We bought it to use at my son's birthday party, as it was cheaper than renting one for the day. It was cool seeing how it just 'magically' turns into cotton candy. I did 20 small cones in less than an hour." –OutdoorMama

    Price: $23.99

    15. A cassette player that converts all of your cumbersome tapes into digital files you can listen anywhere, anytime.

    Includes a USB cord and CD for conversion software.

    Promising Review: "My wife bought me a converter years ago, but it was too big and cumbersome. This one is small, light, and easy to use. The software is simple to understand and finally, I have all my mix-tapes converted, so I can listen to all my old tunes again." –William R.

    Price: $21.99.

    16. A sophisticated striped print dress you can definitely style up or down, depending on what look you're going for on any given day.,

    Promising Review: "Ladies, this is a must-have dress, especially for the price! I wore this dress to work last week and received many compliments throughout the day. It's very eye-catching, comfortable with stretchy material, and fits perfectly." –Jshu

    Price: $19.98. Also available in navy, sizes S-XL.

    17. After Laughter—Paramore totally came through with some upbeat tunes that are not-so-secretly self-deprecating, sad, and relatable.

    It's totally catchy though and that's all that matters! Paramore really did do that.

    Promising Review: "A raw, honest album with powerful lyrics and a nostalgic '80s feel that is still unmistakably Paramore. 26 had me bawling and Fake Happy felt too real at times." –Kim

    Price: $10.99. Also available on cassette or MP3.

    18. Independence Day (also known as the time where Will Smith single handedly saved the world from alien invasion)—if you have any left over patriotism, why not cuddle up on the couch and watch it?

    Promising Review: "I always liked this movie. Lots of action and great special effects. Watch the aliens get what's coming to them. Grab a beer and enjoy!" –Gerald G.

    Price: $11.99+. Also available on DVD, 4K, and Amazon Video.

    Same Will, same.
