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 FINAL ROUND: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

@itsfi  Oh, I think I actually remembering liking the Monsieur mascara, but I don't think I noticed that there was a waterproof option! Thanks for the suggestion! I really like the Lancôme Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Primer 0.19 oz/ 5.6 mL and I think those would make a great pair 😃👌

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

@Shosh85, my wimpy lashes send a huge "thank you" 👍 for the reminder about the Lancome mascara primer. I have an unopen DS that can be put to good use! 😃

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

@TeamBIC -- any given day it could go either way. But if I had fuller brows it would be no contest. Therefore, Brow Pencil!  I just walked out of the house the other day with brows and concealer. It works. 

 

My newest new favorite brow pencil is Sugar Cosmetics in Taupe, but I'll take IT Cosmetics Brow Power Micro Universal Taupe any day, too. 

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

Mascara all the way!!!

 

My mom has the Two Faced Better Than Sex mascara and even though it's a bit dry now, I have used it and it is still amazing!

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

I am going to repeat last week’s answer of brows. I use a couple of brow pencils. 
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Caramel

IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Brow Pencil 

Benefit Cosmetics Big Brow Love Value Set 5 

I have a huge stash of the Brow Wiz that I am trying to work my way through!

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

I was hoping the Final Round would be LIPS  💋  (Lipstick or Lip Gloss) versus EYES  👀  (Brow Pencil or Mascara or Eyeliner).  However, we have Eyes versus Eyes.  I thought about how to choose between Brow Pencil and Mascara.  🤔  If I want sexy eyes, I cannot use one without the other.  They work together for the look I want.  If I am going to wear sexy high heels, would I wear just one shoe; I think not. 💃 👠  My solution was to flip a coin.  🤣  Mascara won the coin flip.  🦄  I still love my Brow Pencil, and Lipstick should have won it all!  😍 👄 💄

@NiKay08 you are stunning!!!!

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

Thank you!  You are too kind!  All the wonderful people here are bringing a smile to my face!  🤗😙🤗😙

 

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

@NiKay08  Beautiful! I love the pinks you used! 

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

Thank you!  Pink is my color!  😍  I wear pink!  I sometimes use pink hair dye!  If something comes in pink, I buy pink!  I think pink!  🤗😙🤗😙

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

@NiKay08 -- Oh, I think your eyes would be sexy with either, but are def stunning with both here!

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

Thank you!  You are making me blush!  😍  And I already put some on!  🤗😙🤗😙

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

What a stunning photo @NiKay08!

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

Thank you!  You are too kind!  🤗😙🤗😙

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

Mascara. 100%. It can be worn on it’s own, and no eye look is complete without it. It’s the only uncompromisable step in any makeup routine in my opinion. 

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

Alright, almost none of my picks made it to the next round and neither of the finalists are my choices. 😡

 

I choose mascara, it really makes my small eyes pop. Current fave is Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara Set . I prefer the travel size mascaras with shorter handles. I also love Lancôme Dèfinicils High Definition Lengthening Mascara for a more natural look. 

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

@lnum, I've only picked one winner this whole time - mascara. I'm hoping it comes through for me again. 😂

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

@itsfi If mascara doesn’t win I’m boycotting brow pencils until the next makeup madness  challenge. 😂

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

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

I'm cracking up about how so many of you are disappointed that your favorite categories didn't make it to the final round - because same! 😅 (Lipstick, c'mon ...)

 

For the last matchup, I'm voting mascara. I'd be sad without my go-to brow pencils, but I really need mascara to complete a makeup look. I'll tag an old favorite: Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Lengthening Mascara Black!
