Makeup Madness Challenge 2022: CHAMPION REVEALED - Check out the winner and Community Favorite makeup products!

TeamBIC_0-1646413463247.png

 

March has made its way to us, and to celebrate, we’re breaking out the beauty brackets for our second annual Makeup Madness Challenge in the BIC! For the next few weeks, eight popular makeup categories will go head-to-head in a showdown to snag the title of 2022 Community Champion makeup category. It’s up to YOU to vote on the winner … and share some tried-and-true beauty recs along the way (because why not?!). 😉

 

We kicked off round 1 with a matchup that sparked serious passion last year: lipstick vs. mascara. 🔥 Mascara ended up taking the crown in 2021, but who knows what will happen this year… especially since we’ll be adding new makeup categories to the mix in future rounds. 😏 Stay tuned!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2022: Tag your Favorite Category – Lipstick vs. Foundation

Yay for Team Lip!

 

Anyone else shopping the tagged items? Because I see one or two tried and trues and a slew of possible new faves!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2022: Tag your Favorite Category – Lipstick vs. Foundation

@TeamBIC I am pleased to hear that lipstick is the winner! 🏆

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2022: Tag your Favorite Category – Lipstick vs. Foundation

Ahhhhh yeeaaaah! "Lipstick is the winner." Love it! ❤️💄❤️💄Maybe a shopping spree is in order to celebrate lipstick's victory?! 🛍 

 

Thank you @TeamBIC for hosting another year of Makeup Madness. And, a huge thank you for taking the time to track not just the top 5 tagged product for lipstick but for all of the makeup categories in this year's brackets! 

 

Yaaaay lipstick!!! 💋

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2022: Tag your Favorite Category – Lipstick vs. Foundation

Okay, alright, "FOREVER SALTY" is officially over. 💄❤️ My 400+ lipsticks and I sincerely thank everyone on Team Lipstick for this fabulous redemption! 

 

Remember, no makeup category is truly "worse" than another. I like mascara (even though 95% of it hurts my eyes)! I love highlighter! Concealer's a big confidence booster for me sometimes. And thank goodness blush and brow pencil weren't in the running this year. All makeup categories are good categories. Not as good as lipstick but  THEY'RE ALL GOOD. 

 

Speaking of mascara: since my lower lashes love Wander Beauty Mile High Club Mascara Jet Black , I should try Wander Beauty Upgraded Lashes Treatment Mascara soon since apparently so many BICers love it. I think I can trust Wander Beauty's mascaras to play nice with my sensitive eyes. Love seeing the other most-tagged products from each category! 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2022: Tag your Favorite Category – Lipstick vs. Foundation

Oh my @WinglessOne !! your lippies collection sounds insane 😍💄💕 you definitely have choices haha 🤣

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2022: Tag your Favorite Category – Lipstick vs. Foundation

Same thoughts on the Wander @WinglessOne 

 

Also, VINDICATION!
