Brand Wars: Eddie Funkhouser

Press Sample

 

Eddie Funkhouser is a game-changing cosmetics brand created by veteran makeup artist, spokesperson and product developer, Eddie Funkhouser. He says his personal mission is to: “help women reconnect with their own, natural beauty and source energy through the exploration of color and creativity.”  This totally makes me adore him. That and the fact that Eddie is accessible to his customers and enjoys it! Not only does he welcome questions at #ASKEDDIE on twitter, but he has responded to comments from readers on my blog. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention his outstanding PR team too!

Eddie has teamed up with our Makeup Wars bloggers to give us a peak at his lipstick collection. See how several colors look on different skin tones!

I was able to try Belle de Jour and Girl Gone Bad, both from the Hyperreal Hydrating Lip Glosses ($10.99) These glosses are light, non-sticky and hydrating. There is plenty of pigment and a nice shine without looking too wet. The soothing and hydrating ingredients in this gloss include Aloe Vera and Vitamins E, C, and A. Glosses that aren’t sticky typically don’t stick around for long and while I wouldn’t say this is long-lasting, you won’t have to apply every hour on the hour either.

These glide on and feel amazing on the lips. Belle de Jour is a bright, sheer fuchsia pink with TONS of wet, juicy shine! The color does not apply as bright as in the tube, it is much more sheer. I know I will wear this a lot this summer. Good Girl Gone Bad (don’t you just love that name?) is an opaque pinky beige that is great for everyday wear.

I also was sent Broadway Babe, a clear gloss with sparkle. “I believe the energy you give off is the energy you receive in return. So what better way to show the world you are full of fun, love and positive energy? My answer to that is GLITTER! I designed two glittery shades of gloss to help do just that in a stunning and unforgettable way!” I like to use Broadway Babe over a lipstick I need to add some shine to or to soften the color. I wish I was a better photographer because I was unable to capture the beautiful sparkle. Maybe one of our other bloggers was able to.

In addition to the glosses, Eddie sent me two lovely lipsticks. The first is  Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Color ($11.99) in Rumor, a deep burgundy. Eddie says it’s black cherry and that description is right on! This formula is ultra lightweight with intense pigment. This lipstick applied very patchy on my lips. It could be because my lips are not currently in the best shape, or because this is not the ideal formula for me. Rumor is quite intense on my pale lips and coupled with my pale skin, I don’t feel entirely comfortable wearing it.

Strip Search is from the Chromographic Lip Color line and suits me much better. This formula has light reflecting particles for a creamy finish. I love the moisture this formula imparts thanks to the Mango fruit extracts, Portulaca Pilosa Flower Extract and Vitamins E & C. Strip Search is a bright pink with a subtle mutli-dimensional effect. Can you see some slight sparkle?

Bottom Line: the Eddie Funkhouser line truly does provide quality luxury products at drugstore prices and I can’t recommend it enough! Plus Eddie is so nice and really cares about his customers. What more could a beauty junkie want?
