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 Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

Yes @lnum Poppet is really very pretty and @itsfidescribed it perfectly. I also tend to layer it with a light liquid blush under or powder blush over it for more staying power but it does well on it’s own and the texture is perfect. Think @curlychiquita and I also have some swatches of the different shades as well somewhere, probably on swatch thread. Try it. You’ll def like it. 😊

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

@lnum, oooh, Poppet is a gorgeous, bright pink that is perfect for spring and summer. I'll have to try this one on bare cheeks. When I picked up Petal, I was light-medium; it would give me a flush of color.

 

@sabrinas has some fabulous swatches on the Westman Atelier thread: https://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup-Is-Life/The-Wonderful-Westman-Atelier/m-p/4100413/highlight/...

 

What other blushes have you been loving?

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

Wow and here I was holding out for Lipstick as the overall pick😳 I am more than shocked! 

I will have to go with brow pencil for this round, because like lipstick, it sets the face and frames everything so beautifully. The in-between ashy and too orange-y ABH Brow Wiz in Chocolate yet again!

 

 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

@TeamBIC It's definitely blush for me! My eye brows are ok on their own, but my pale ghost face needs some color 😄 My favorites right now are MERIT Flush Balm Cream Blush Mood from the recent gratis, (thank you!) and NARS Blush Orgasm X. I'm hoping to pick up a couple more shades of those Merit blushes. 😉

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

Looooove the Merit blush @Shosh85! I've had my eye on a couple of the other shades; it's been so hard deciding what to get now and what to save for later.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

@itsfi  Oh my goodness you're telling me! I've been trying to pace myself and not over-do it, but I keep seeing more and more things I want!   

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

Goodness gracious, yes!!!! 😆 100% relate to that! I am trying to make just one more medium sized haul before the sale ends but pacing myself is easier said than done!! 🙃 And it seems this shopping cart of mine fills up faster by the day! 😂 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

@itsfi @Shosh85 I just had a yucky meeting that I wasn't enjoying and so I minimized the people while ordering the TOM FORD Cream Color For Eyes 02 Opale .  At this point in the day/week/pandemic I'm saying yolo and ordering when I feel like it to get the high.  PS... I started off figuring I'd do 2-3 orders and call it a sale.  The universe ran my freezer out of ice cream but gave us 20% off to make up for it... this is how life is now lol

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

@missjeanie @Shosh85, that TF eyeshadow looks so pretty! 😍 So sorry you had to sit through a yucky meeting! 😒 The TF sounds like just the thing the situation called for! 👍🏼 

 

Now, about being out of ice cream ... surely, that can be addressed too, yes? You can have the TF shadow and ice cream!! 🥰

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

Lol @itsfi  the ice cream will be on the next grocery order!  Of that I can assure you.  I've pretty much decided today that if picking out some makeup I don't need makes my day better... I'm just gonna go ahead and pick something every dang day lol

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

@missjeanie  Hahaha! I like your style! An order a day keeps the crankiness away! 😂 @itsfi 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

Also stinging from the loss of beloved lip but this has to be blush for me. I have not mastered brow pencil that well. Go blush! Many favs but one great one to look freshly flushed always. Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick Poppet 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

Hmmm.

 

So I love blush for draping.  I can get it to peek out of my mask and feel pretty doll-ed up.

I've threaded my eyebrows to the end of the earth, unfortunately, so pomade and brow products are required.

 

I love a pomade, but I have worked Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Dark Brown back into rotation.  It just gets that brow line so sharp.  Brow pen it is!

 

...

Lowkey mad lipstick isn't in the finals

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

@danielledanielle 

Former brow threader here. I look like a completely different person if I do one brow and leave the other (I sadly know this as I’ve left the house like this once 😶) brows make such a diff! 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

Ohhhhhh noooo 😂 @GG84 

 

Yeah, I made the mistake of going back to someone who was too rough twice, because I was in a hurry.  If I had put on my glasses as saw what she did, I think I could've saved them!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

Mascara won! Yay

This is torture to a blush lover because I can’t live without Brow pencil so Brow pencil it is for me.

 

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil Dark Brunette 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

@fatimamummy -

 

 Yes, yes it is. 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

OMG my pick actually pulled through 😄 YAY for mascara!! 

 

I'm going to go with Brow Pencil over blush because I rarely use blush. I just picked this one up from Sephora Collection:

SEPHORA COLLECTION Retractable Brow Pencil - Waterproof 

 

At 30% off, my curiosity couldn't be contained 😄 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

You enabler @Mcakes  Now I need to check it out.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

giphy

Can't stop won't stop 😄

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

Oh noooo, you are enabling me, honey!! 😅 @Mcakes my brow gels last me a long time, but maybe I'll just take a peek 👀
