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

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™ Length and Define Mascara Jet Black , I should try Wander Beauty Upgraded Lashes™ Thickening 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!

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

Yippee 🙌🏻 @TeamBIC , justice for lippies! 🥰 Such a fun challenge and love the favorites! 💄❤️

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

@TeamBIC  Now that lipstick has won the championship, all the stress choosing favorites was worth it. 😂💄

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

So true, @Ispend2much6. We of BIC indeed witnessed 

"The Thrill of Victory, and the Agony of Defeat !"

But I am not so certain re. including TF$ lipstick along with ever-popular PMG and CT ...plus Merit, Givenchy; Guerlain. And the GXVE; NARS? 

Hope everyone has a fine Weekend!

*** yes, I already voted a few days ago, I know 🤣....this is just me pointing out my love for lippies (forever and always)💄💕 ***

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

This feels like a huge upset, and my personal choice would be for foundation. Yet I don’t think any beauty product (maybe fragrance, yes?) can make one feel changed in an instant, so much as lipstick can.

My vote is for lipstick. Nothing else feels quite as wonderful as applying it!

What a great MU-related movie scene!, @eshoe. Illustrates how we can deftly apply LS in a sedan. Quick & Big results!  Fndtn- ? Nope.  One quibble: Audrey was a muse of Givenchy. I'd guess if she was still with us,  she'd wear le Rouge Satin or Matte-Velvet ? Or the new swirly number?

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

Ha yes, @MvLL - and I think the new swirly number would be the new pick😉

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

@eshoe  I received a sample of this, and it is such a pretty nude shade! 

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

oooh that’s a nice sample, @Ispend2much6! Good catch!

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

@eshoe 100% agree with your statement!! 💄💗💄 Lipstick ftw!!

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

I think it is going to be a clean sweep, @Skunk12puzzola 😉

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

Foundation! I could always bite my lip if I need more colour.

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

As much as I like foundation for those days when you kinda look like the walking dead I have to go with lipstick. It can be used in so many ways (lips, cheeks, and eyes) that foundation just can't do.

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

Oh I think I forgot to vote last week but I would vote for foundation over highlighter. However in the final round, lipstick would get my vote. I will wear some sheer lipstick without any foundation.
