Finally, a sport we can all get behind... MAKEUP MADNESS! In the spirit of March, we’ve put together the ultimate battle of the beauty favorites – bracket style! – and it’s YOUR turn to vote! Each week, we’ll have a new showdown, pitting tried-and-true makeup categories against each other until we narrow it down and crown the Community Champion makeup product category… and hopefully get some all-star recs along the way! 😊

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

@TeamBIC --Not surprised mascara won. That last was a tough choice... 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

Congratulations to the Mascara team 😂 The list couldn’t be perfect. Milk Mush and Ilia limitless are among my favourites. 
It was such a fun challenge. Can’t wait to see what new challenge will come next!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

Yay! Congratulations to Mascara!  It's an essential for most of us who wear makeup!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

@TeamBIC this was awesome - congrats to mascara!!!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

@TeamBIC   This was a lot of fun!  Mascara is a worthy winner.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

@TeamBIC  Loved this challenge! 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

Not at all how I expected this to end, @TeamBIC! Given the past year, though, I’m not surprised - the eyes say it all 💖

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

@eshoe  This gif is strangely hypnotic and satisfying...

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

It reminds me of a silent film star, @Ispend2much6. So much mystery behind those eyes!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

@eshoe  Exactly!  I was thinking Joan Crawford, but not quite the same.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

Oh yes, @Ispend2much6! I watched “It Happened One Night” in my teens, and since then when I think of black and white films, I always think of Claudette Colbert. This reminded me of her, too:)

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

@eshoe  I can see that.  I need to pull out my old movies; I haven't watched them in years.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

Yay for Mascara! Congrats to Ilia for having the best mascara!!!🎉🎉🎉

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - CHAMPION REVEALED!

Woohoo!!!! Yaay mascara! This was a lot of fun @TeamBIC😁 Time to celebrate - gonna pick me up a new mascara . . . or two . . . 🛍
