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 FINAL ROUND: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

It really all comes down to the eyes doesn't it? I'm not surprised, especially given the fact that masks have become such a big part of our lives over the past year. I'm going to go with mascara, there's just magic in a tube of mascara that can't be beat! 💖

Sephora Favorites Lashstash to Go Mini Mascara Set is such a great set, and it comes in an adorable tin. 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge FINAL ROUND: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

@Mcakes, that tin is super cute!!! 🥰 I picked up a few during the sale to give out as gifts! 🎁 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge FINAL ROUND: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

@itsfi they make wonderful gifts! One size fits all 😄

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge FINAL ROUND: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

I need no time whatsoever to think about this - mascara! I'm still bummed that lip gloss and brow gel got knocked out, but forced to pick I'm mascara all the way on this one. And I'm going to tag my fave again just for good measure: Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara Black 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge FINAL ROUND: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

Mascara

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge FINAL ROUND: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

░▒▓█►─═ Brow pencil ═─◄█▓▒░ there really isn’t another choice here. The correct and only answer is BROWS 😂

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge FINAL ROUND: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

Wow did anyone see this coming?!?! I still am shocked that lipstick was knocked out so early! I must say Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and Brow Pencil for the win. 

 

 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge FINAL ROUND: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

Brow pencil. Easy choice—and not just because mascara inexplicably knocked lipstick out of the tournament. (FOREVER SALTY.) When I say I don't leave home without wearing brow pencil, I mean it. And I keep a spare brow pencil in my bag at all times. 

 

I've already mentioned my favorite daily pencil, Kimiko Super Fine Eyebrow Pencil Automatique. Also my usual backup, Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer Shade 6 . I recently started testing LH Cosmetics Sketch and Sculpt (shade Almost Black), a dual-ended brow tool: brow pencil on one end, liquid brow brush on the other end. I like it so far, despite a couple issues. Won't replace my Kimiko pencil, though! 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge FINAL ROUND: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

Oh darn it!  I’m still bitter over lipstick is not the champion 😂🤣 okie I vote for brow pencil. I can wear brow pencil without wearing any other make up.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge FINAL ROUND: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

@TeamBIC @My vote is for brow pencil Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz . I can still curl my lashes or wear falsies if I don’t have mascara. 

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

This week, in another close victory, BROW PENCIL made it out on top in the showdown between brow pencil and blush! 🎉

 

We're down the the final matchup, BIC. Which makeup category will take home the championship next week: MASCARA or BROW PENCIL? Once you've had time to think about your favorite of the two categories, hit "reply" and leave your vote using the "#" symbol to tag your favorite product within that category! 

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

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

I’ll go for brow pencil. Again, because of COVID-19 that’s my go to.

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

H @TeamBIC I!!! This one! I love blush- So many and recently through all of my virtual consultations blush has really been a key stand out! I personally love Tower 28 Beauty BeachPlease Lip + Cheek Cream Blush After Hours ! This is a must for me because of the glow and multi use applications. While i Do love a good brow I have to go with BLUSH!!! A glowing one that is!

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

As I mentioned before, I'm a very recent blush enthusiast (my new Merit blush arrives tomorrow - eeee!), BUT like a few people below me have said, I truly do not leave the house without my brows! And for that reason, I gotta go with brow pencil. A recent fave of my mine is Dior Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil

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

I love you brow pencil, but I'm Team Blush all the way! You can do so many things with blush that you just can't do with a brow pencil @TeamBIC .
