Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Round 5 - Lip Liner vs. Face Primer

Makeup Madness Challenge 2023Makeup Madness Challenge 2023

 

It’s March, and here in the BIC that can only mean one thing… 🥁… It’s time to celebrate the anniversary of one of our favorite activities: MAKEUP MADNESS! Yes, we’re bringing back this fan-favorite challenge for the third year in a row, where our beloved makeup categories go head-to-head in the ultimate showdown to earn the crown of Community Champion. 👑

 

This year, we’ve retired our previous winners – Mascara (2021) and Lipstick (2022) – and brought in a mix of some new and old categories to face off in some fierce competition. It’s up to YOU to vote on the winner … and share some tried-and-true beauty recs along the way (that’s what we’re really here for, after all). 😉

Don’t know how to play? It’s easy! TO VOTE, hit the reply button below and tell us which category you’re voting for AND tag a product you love that represents the category you’re voting for during that week. For example, @GeorginaBT loves a tingly lip moment, so she might reply with “Lip Plumper! My new fave is Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Heat Universal Lip Luminizer + Plumper Hot Chocolit."

 

Let the games begin! Each new round of voting starts Fridays, and ends the following Thursday at 2pm PT:

  • ROUND 1 (3/3 – 3/9): Lip liner (👑) vs. Lip plumper
  • ROUND 2 (3/10 – 3/16): Face primer (👑) vs. Setting spray 
  • ROUND 3 (3/17 – 3/23): Foundation (👑) vs. Tinted Moisturizer
  • ROUND 4 (3/24 – 3/30): Eyeshadow (👑) vs. Eyeliner

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Round 2 - Face Primer vs. Setting Spray!

That sounds like a great combo @SportyGirly125 ! 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Round 2 - Face Primer vs. Setting Spray!

This one is tough, but for competition’s sake I’ll say setting spray. My go-to is Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray Standard Size - 4 oz/ 118 mL .

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Round 2 - Face Primer vs. Setting Spray!

I also love all nighter @arrecife!

 

 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Round 2 - Face Primer vs. Setting Spray!

Oooh a tough one but I definitely love primer ! I feel like setting a nice base and smoothing pores is a go to for me Tatcha The Silk Canvas Protective Primer Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Round 2 - Face Primer vs. Setting Spray!

Round 1 results are in! Lip liner has defeated Lip plumper and will continue to "compete" for the crown later in the competition.

 

Now for Round 2! Face primer vs. Setting spray. Some would insist both are essential in keeping your beauty look on lock, but you know the name of the game -- in Makeup Madness, there can only be one winner. 👑😜 Now let's get to voting!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

@TeamBIC  This one is a no brainer for me. I am obsessed LAWLESS Forget The Filler Lip Plumper Line Smoothing Gloss Cherry Vanilla  it is just so good. So I am team lip plumper

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

The Lawless lip plumper is so good @ather! That shade looks beautiful. 😍

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

@itsfi  It is so pretty on!!

Week 1: Lip Liners vs Lip Plumpers

It’s a tough call whenever lip products are pitted against one another in these challenges. This first week is no exception. You don’t make it easy @TeamBIC! Challenging but always fun! 
 
It’s been years since I’ve worn lip liner consistently, but I have been making more of an effort over the last couple of months. Lip plumpers, on the other hand, find their way into my routine much more frequently, as evidenced by the number I found in my handbag just now … 😉
2023 Week 1 - Lip Liner vs Lip Plumper.jpg

It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I’ll sum it up in three - Team Lip Plumpers!! ❤️🥰
 
The Dior Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss  are my current go to’s - the Dior Lip Maximizer Serum 0.17 oz/ 5mL (not pictured)# is also lovely and will be repurchased during the spring sale! 🛒
 
A new discovery for me has been SEPHORA COLLECTION Outrageous Plumping Lip Gloss 5 Plump It Up Red - I have been keeping this in one of my desk drawers, to have on hand for those last minute meetings or videoconference calls. 
 
An oldie but goodie (and my intro to the world of lip plumpers) is Buxom Full-On™ Plumping Lip Polish Gloss Dolly - she's still a staple in my collection after all these years! 💗

 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

@itsfi  Beautiful picture!!! I am totally with you. I don’t always wear lip liner!! Team plumper all the way!

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

@ather, I just recently started doing the lip balm + lip liner pairing more regularly and like it but I’m still a lip plumper gal. Really good with the Rhode balm.

@itsfi Beautiful photo 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

Thank you @Mellmars1185! Taking photos is a creative outlet for me. ♥️

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

Like @dimesandnichols , I 100% agree, lipliners. While I don't need them keep lipcolor from bleeding, they can finish off a look and are quicker than using a lip brush. And my lips are way too sensitive for most plumpers anyway. I also like MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Pencil Brow, Eye & Lip Liner 606 Wherever Walnut but my absolute go-to is Sephora collection Contouring Gel Lip Liner in The Nudest.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

100% lip liners! Being in my 40s, my lips don't have any definition anymore along the edges. I love MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Pencil Brow, Eye & Lip Liner 606 Wherever Walnut and MAKEUP BY MARIO Ultra Suede® Sculpting Lip Pencil Hugh to give me natural definition, with or without lipstick.

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

Now I am curious about MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Pencil Brow, Eye & Lip Liner 606 Wherever Walnut @dimesandnichols !! I need to swatch it in store because I am not able to get an idea from the pictures in the product description. It looks pretty though! 

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

@Saradestin Here's a photo of it swatched on my hand.

Thank you so much for the swatch @dimesandnichols ! 🤗🤗🤗 This one goes to my basket right now! It is gorgeous 😍

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

@Saradestin always happy to help out a friend 💖

Re: Makeup Madness Challenge 2023: Vote for your Faves in the Ultimate Beauty Bracket!

@dimesandnichols I have not tried the lipliner from Makeup by Mario yet. I have tried the eyeliner and lipstick. It is great to know that you are happy with the lipliner.
