We’re kicking off March right by bringing back the BIC’s favorite beauty bracket challenge – Makeup Madness! 😉 For the fourth year in a row, we’re putting makeup-related categories to the test by asking Community members to pick their favorite between two every week. At the end of the bracket, we’ll know which makeup category will earn this year’s Community Champion crown. 👑

 

In past years, Mascara, Lipstick, and Eyeshadow have earned the honorable title of Makeup Madness winner. This year, we’re bringing eight fresh categories into the frenzy – we’ll reveal them slowly and keep a visual of the current bracket updated below!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Ooh, some amazing picks right here! I LOVE the Divinyl shine!  @WinglessOne 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Omggggggg @WinglessOne! The Gucci is something I've never seen and is a new MUST-HAVE for me! It is nice to have softness + a kiss of color ❤️

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@furbie  Sounds like Gucci’s tinted balm is right up your alley! I still don’t own one; I think I have every other lip item Gucci makes 😅 but not those balms because they’re not pigmented enough for me. I’ve swatched each Sephora-sold shade of Gucci’s balm on both the front and back of my hand to see how sheer they really are. And yep, they’re a kiss of color. Possibly perfect for anyone who just wants a light/sheer wash of color. If you try one, I hope you like it!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Oh darn I forgot about my beloved PMG lip balm @WinglessOne 😂🤣 This is really tough choice

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@blackkitty2014  Pat’s tinted balms are fantastic, right? They’re still my favorite tinted balms by any brand. 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Exactly @WinglessOne . I hoarding so many different colors. I need to use them this week 😘

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Woohoo! One of my favorite challenges of the year, but oh my goodness @TeamBIC, you're killing me with this choice! And, right out of the gate, too! Oof. I do love both but I'm going with LIP OIL this round. My current favorites are from Ami Cole -

They also pair nicely together. If I had to choose one, it'd be the cranberry red shade, Romance.

@itsfi  I don’t know if I can pick one. This is such a hard choice. I feel like I love both equally! But I agree with you I am in love with the Ami Cole lip oils!! They are just so good! 😊 They look beautiful on you! 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

So pretty! @itsfi 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Oh I totally forgot about how good these are! @itsfi,. Great pick!

I sincerely hope these lip oils come to Sephora Canada. I have only tried her clear one and it was my favorite lip oil...until I left it on my pocket and it went thru a full wash and dry cycle. It didn't make it. 😭 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Oooh this is exciting! @TeamBIC 🙏🤩

I wonder what fun products we will see go head to head in the upcoming weeks? I'm super curious see where this goes!

 

My choice for this week's match up is *Lip Oil* 💋 😘 and I'm tagging a go to product I discovered early this year,

 

Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil Honesty  🤎

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@CynthieLu  Great pick!! I can see why you picked it! Such a great choice!! 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Thank you @ather it is a good one! I really like the shade of honesty. It's so wearable 😀

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@CynthieLu, lovely choice. 💗 Her lip oils glide on so smoothly! 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

That's so true, they really do @itsfi 😀

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Tinted Lip balms....although I haven't found any that wow me...always too sheer.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@greeneyedgirl107, this may mean you get to try out more until you find your "go to" tinted lip balm. 😉

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@itsfi I like your thinking!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@greeneyedgirl107, we can't have you settling for a formula that is too sheer. That's not right. 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

Lip oil 

i would say my fav is nyx or elf

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 1: Lip Oil vs. Tinted Lip Balm

@AvaKrenke, I've never tried a lip oil from either of those brands but am making a note to check them out at some point. 😀
