Raise your hand if you've ever bought something after seeing it on Instagram. OK, everyone got their hands up? Yeah, us too. Social media is something of a brave new world for marketing and more and more brands are optimizing their lines to appeal to the specific aesthetics of juggernauts like Instagram.

You know the look: These products tend to be shiny, minimalistic, and accented with some sort of pastel tone. Sometimes, they're so cute, you'll be tempted to buy them on the spot — but more often than not, you'll probably find yourself doing a little research first. So, with that in mind, we tested some of the most Instagram-worthy beauty brands around... and now we're reporting back to you with our top five favorites. With these brands, the products are of primo quality — on the outside and the inside.
