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 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

@Shosh85, excellent choices! I've been a fan of the Merit cream blushes for a while, picking up different shades along the way. The Tower 28 BeachPlease line is one I've only recently started falling for - they are quite nice. Who knows why it's taken me so long to do that. 😅 Do you use your fingers to apply and blend, or do you have a go-to brush you like to use when these two?

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

@itsfi  With most cream blushes, I usually like to dab a little on with my finger first, then go in with a brush to buff it out. 😃

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

Those both look beautiful and so easily to apply! Love the creamy color shades adore these choices! @Shosh85 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

@peculiarzmakeup  They're so great! I just love the glowy/dewy look and feel of them! 😍

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

Beautiful decision 😉 @Shosh85 You are another voice shouting out Tower 28 Beauty BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush Golden Hour. I'm getting very curious about this one. 🧡

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

@CynthieLu  I love Tower 28! I have a few of the shades, but Magic Hour and Rush Hour are my favorites!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

Good to know @Shosh85 thank you! I am going to quickly browse the shades 😉 ( they even fun names too, love it!)

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

This one is so hard because I love both, but I have to go with cream blush. My favorites are MERIT Flush Balm Cream Blush and Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Lip + Cheek Cream Blush Stick .  Even though Westman Atelier Face Trace Cream Contour Stick Biscuit is the best and easiest contour stick I’ve ever used.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

Wonderful blush choices (and contour stick too) @faeriegirl.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

@faeriegirl  Love the Merit blushes! Definitely need to try WA!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

I love these choices I keep seeing the MERIT Flush Balm Cream Blush Beverly Hills it looks so good I might have to get it haha @faeriegirl  ❤️

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

Oooh it was a tough call for you. That must have been a hard decision to make. @faeriegirl I could feel the struggle between loved products. 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

I am on team cream blushes. I love them because they have beautiful pigments and they *last*. The ones I've used from Danessa Myrics and Rare Beauty do not disappoint and my blush dosen't fade or disappear. 😍

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

@CynthieLu  Oh, so pretty! I haven't tried the DM blushes yet, but I'll definitely have to soon!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

They are *pigmented* and they don't give up. @Shosh85. 😄 The lasting power of these creme blushes is so impressive.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

@CynthieLu  Oooh, sounds great! 😍

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

This is such a beautiful photo the ones from DM have so many beautiful shades I haven’t tried a blush other then RB this thread is giving me some great ideas 🥰 @CynthieLu 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

Right? @peculiarzmakeup  I started reading this week's replies and now I'm thinking seriously about Tower 28 and that I obviously need to check them out soon. 😋

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

I have 4 I want to try now I can’t remember them all I know one is LYS, one Patrick TA, the RB one the one you mentioned and something else so 5 haha 😂 @CynthieLu 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

If you mean the PATRICK TA Major Headlines Double-Take Crème & Powder Blush Duo Not Too Much duo's, samezies! 😋 I can't reasonably buy a blush right now @peculiarzmakeup (not that that's ever stopped me 🙈) but if I was it would be one or two of those and the Tower 28 ones 🤩

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2024 – Round 3: Cream Blush vs. Contour Stick

Yes @CynthieLu  that’s the one you read my mind! They all look amazing I gotta narrow it down and start with one it’s so difficult. I think I’m gonna put the names into a hat at this point all such beauties 🥰🫶
