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 Week 6: Brow Pencil vs. Blush

Accurate 😂🤣 @WinglessOne 

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

How could lipstick lose???? That’s a shocker for me! I pick blush. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Collection Mood Exposure 

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

Wohoooo I knew Mascara would win out over lipstick!  My vote for this round goes to TEAM BLUSH.  I can get away without any brow products but a good blush can work as blush/bronzer(even if its not a nude for me lol)/lip tint/shadow.  I'm currently concentrating on using up a Becca cream blush, but the PATRICK TA Monochrome Moment - Velvet Blush She's Seductive is super nice as a multi use product for me.  I'm planning on grabbing a few more cream blushes if they come back into stock this week. 

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

Ahhh, good point on blush as a bronzer @missjeanie!!! 👊

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

I swear I may be the only person who does it @itsfi but since I'm on the pale end of pale, I end up liking using a bit of leftover blush around my hairline like a bronzer.  It can often look more natural than an actual bronzer.  Do you have a favourite to win the bracket?

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

I’m going to give your tip a try @missjeanie! Thank you!! 🤗 

 

I’ve only won one round in this entire Makeup Madness. 😆 Clearly, my record is not great! Maybe for a consolation prize, I’ll pick myself up something else during the sale! 🛍 🤣 At this point, I’m for mascara taking it all! 

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

Sounds like you may need to invest in a winning product there @itsfi !

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

I'm taking that as an order @missjeanie! I shall seek out one of each category! Ha! 

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

What? How could lippies loose to mascara 😅😞😫😤 okie next round is tough. I love blushers but I can’t wear blushers alone but I sure can do brow pencil itself. Yup brow pencil it is

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

@TeamBIC I love blush and brow pencil but since I have barely there brows I will have to choose brows.  My go to is Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz 

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

Another close one, BIC! This one was a surprise to me personally: MASCARA takes the crown in the showdown between mascara and lipstick. 👑 Just can't underestimate the power of a lengthened lash! 

 

Now it's down to the last of the semifinals, and we're asking you to cast your vote: BROW PENCIL or BLUSH

 

Vote for either brow pencil or blush, and when tagging a product within that category, feel free to either tag the same product you tagged previously (if you voted in Round 3 or 4), or tag another favorite!

😄 😄 😄 

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

@GeorginaBT!! I too am surprised! Gonna have to think through this next round. Hmmm...🤔

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

@GeorginaBT Such a hard choice 😭

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 5: Mascara vs. Lipstick

Y'all know mascara is gonna take the win all the way on this one. We love our lashes! I just received the Sephora Favorites Lashstash To Go so I can't wait to test out some new goodies. 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 5: Mascara vs. Lipstick

Mascara! @benefit They’re Real 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 5: Mascara vs. Lipstick

Got to pitch in for lipstick! My day is definitely incomplete without that 🙂 NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil Intriguing Charlotte Tilbury Mini Pillow Talk Lipstick & Liner Set Pillow Talk 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 5: Mascara vs. Lipstick

A bit of a tough one, but for practical purposes I am going to say Lipstick. Gotta keep the lips moisturized, and it is a good substitute for gloss, after all! I recently discovered Yves Saint Laurent The Slim Glow Matte Lipstick 214 Illicit Orange. It is wayyyyy outside of my comfort zone, but it felt perfect and put together. Looking forward to this little treat for summer!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 5: Mascara vs. Lipstick

This is a tough one, Do I ever wear lipstick and not Mascara? Sometimes. Do I ever wear Mascara but not lipstick? Often 

So I’ll pick Mascara but my world will be a sad place without lipsticks.

Few favourites 

Blinc Mascara Amplified Black PAT McGRATH LABS FetishEyes™ Lengthening Mascara 0.27 oz/ 8 mL ILIA Limitless Lash Lengthening Mascara After Midnight 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge Week 5: Mascara vs. Lipstick

@fatimamummy   The brush on the Ilia mascara is very unique; I don't think I've ever seen one like that before.  Does it help prevent clumping well?
