Effect can also be a verb. It means to cause something to happen or bring about: The prime minister effected many policy changes.

Affect is a verb. Effect can be a noun or a verb, but is usually a noun.

Affection is an effect that can affect your personal effects in spite of any affectations to the contrary.

As already said, affect = verb and effect = noun

But there are instances when effect can be a verb and affect a noun, but rather rare.
