An average rating of at least four stars is as good as gold on Amazon. It's a pretty safe bet that products with this seal of approval from customers are the real deal. So when it comes to trying out new makeup products, a great place to start is Amazon's list of customer-loved items (all of which have a minimum overall rating of four stars). That is, unless you have the time and money to test every mascara, eyeliner, foundation, and eyeshadow palette on the market.

The selection is vast, so we took the liberty of parsing this treasure trove of concealers, lipsticks, and fake eyelashes for the best of the best. In the end, we came up with eight fan favorites.

The best makeup on Amazon includes products from popular brands like Revlon, Maybelline, NYX, and Essence. For instance, shoppers can't seem to get enough of Maybelline's dark circle eraser or Essence's Lash Princess mascara. Both have thousands of five-star reviews and tens of thousands of five-star ratings. So you can pretty much guarantee that they get the job done.
