Why trust us

Affiliate Disclosure participates in various affiliate marketing programs, which means that we may receive paid commissions on products purchased through links on our retailer websites. However, every product on is independently researched, tested or editorially approved, from the most comfortable heels to the best mascara. We always put consumers first and only recommend products we support. Merchandise on our site is always driven by editorial and product testing standards, not by affiliate deals or advertising relationships.

editorial independence

Although ELLE is partially ad-supported, our content is independently produced and meets strict standards of quality, accuracy and integrity. In some cases, sponsors may be allowed to comment on broad concepts, but they have no material impact on the final product. Content created in partnership with advertisers is clearly marked as such.
