BIC_MakeupMadness_ThreadImage.png

 

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! 😊

Brow Pencil!!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - LAST CHANCE TO VOTE: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

@TeamBIC This may sound rather odd.... but, is there a way to collect the data from this thread and see which items of each category were tagged the most?  I'd love to see what a full face of BIC March Madness Faves are?

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - LAST CHANCE TO VOTE: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

@missjeanie  Oooh, LOVE that idea! 😍🙌

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - LAST CHANCE TO VOTE: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

@Shosh85 I know I wouldn't be the only one thinking about applying a full face of favourites lol!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - LAST CHANCE TO VOTE: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

That is an excellent  idea ! @missjeanie. @TeamBIC ❤️❤️

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - LAST CHANCE TO VOTE: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

How about a Sephora Favorites kit containing the winners @TeamBIC ? 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - LAST CHANCE TO VOTE: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

Ohhhhh that would be awesome! BIC faves box! @Loretta55  @missjeanie @Shosh85 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge - LAST CHANCE TO VOTE: Mascara vs. Brow Pencil

@TeamBIC  M A S C A R A😍I have many that I love and stick with!!! I use a lash curler first, then prime my lashes with Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Primer - Epic Lash Primer  with Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes Volumizing & Lengthening Mascara  Top and bottom! I love this primer because it nourishes my lashes and the mascara really lifts my lashes and adds beautiful length! ❤️ 

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

Mascara. I like the kind with a comb-style applicator, so my favorites are Dior Diorshow Iconic Mascara and Buxom Lash Volumizing Mascara 0.37 oz/ 10 mL .

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

MASCARA!! 

#Too Faced Twice The Sex Mascara Duo Black 

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

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

Gosh, I love them both so much! But if I can only leave the house with one on my face, it's gotta be brows, brows, brows. 😉 This time I'm tagging Charlotte Tilbury Brow Cheat Refillable Hair-Like Eyebrow Pencil Dark Brown ❤️ 

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

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

@tastelikewater @quspork @faeriegirl I’m noticing a lot of votes for this Ilia mascara! I’m going to have to drop it into my basket😉

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

I don't think you'll be disappointed, @Guessgal. I love that it doesn't clump at all and has great staying power!

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

My short, thin lashes need both volume and length, and the dual-action brush provides both! There was a slight learning curve to maximize the effect, but now I love it. 

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

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

@TeamBIC WOW!  This is really hard!  For years and years I would have said mascara.  But, I think now if I could only do one it would be brows (though I prefer powder to pencil!).
