Eddie Funkhouser Chromographic Lip Color & a Birthday Giveaway!!

Eddie Funkhouser Lipstick


Press Sample


My new bestie Eddie has done it again! I first fell for him when I tried some of his fab cosmetics for the eyes (read my review here–the mascara is GENIUS!). After getting a taste of the line, I quickly became an addict in search of my next fix and the Eddie Funkhouser Chromographic Lip Color ($11.99) left me feeling high on pucker power!  According to the website:

“Chromographic Lip Color saturates lips with vibrant hues and light reflecting particles for a creamy finish and eye-catching multi-dimensional effects.”

Girls–Eddie don’t lie. These are light, extremely creamy and über hydrating which I love! They are so hydrating, there is no need for primer or a lip balm underneath. It seems no matter how much I try to exfoliate or condition my lips, I always have lines in them and it makes me feel old so I am grateful that this lipstick is so creamy. I don’t need lip liner either; EF Chromographic Lip Color glides on lips effortlessly.

Eddie Funkhouser Kiki

Eddie Funkhouser Kiki

Kiki is a color rich coral pink, though with my coloring the pink is more predominant. What I love about this shade is that it is neutral–it doesn’t pull too cool or warm making it a universally flattering shade! I just love the soft, cushion-y feel and how it easily it applies. When I hear the name Kiki,  I immediately think of Kiki Dee and the song she recorded with Elton John “Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart.”  Yes, I’m old–if you are under 40, Google it youngsters.  While the song isn’t a classic, Kiki is and I can’t guarantee that you won’t break some hearts while wearing this lipstick!

EF Skinny Dip

Skinny Dip is one a very few nude shades I can wear without looking like the undead. It is a beigey pink with the teeny tiniest bit of frost. It works naked (heh, heh get it?) or layered with another shade. I like to wear it as a base under Love Rush (below). The finish on these lipsticks is perfection! I would call it a satin;  they are so rich there is a bit of shine without looking glossy–very classic and elegant.

Eddie Funkhouser Love Rush

EF Love Rush Gloss

Love Rush is one of 12 Hyperreal Hydrating Lip Glosses ($10.99) . Isn’t it sweet that Eddie knows my passion for coral? These glosses are light, low-tack 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. I’m in love with the pretty peachy coral shade and light texture.

    Thanks for the review. I knew you would love those summery corals! I love your Kiki reference! I thought I would also share mine… One of my favorite bands is the Scissor Sisters and they did a song called – Let’s Have a Kiki . It is such a fun song and really gets you going! Some fun info… the lead singer, Ana Matronic, was sent EDDIE FUNKHOUSER product… of course Kiki was one of the shades sent her way! 🙂

    Check out the video I found on YoueTube

    Good luck to all who enter the giveaway!

      • Lets all have a Kiki! There have been nights where I picked up the phone to a group of friends saying they were heading my way! When that happens I just can’t resist… lock the door, lower the blinds, fire up the smoke machine… HA HA HA Let’s have a Kiki!

  16. Those shades are gorgeous!

  17. Mamavalveeta03 says

    Beautiful shades, Cindy! With as much positive buzz as you and the BIZ girls have given Eddie’s products, I MUST try them!
    My color for summer is a super-bright, but sheer, hot pink ( The new Tulip lip balm by Fresh)

  18. I’ve really been wanting to try this brand!

  19. I am so in love with my Eddie goodies!

  20. I love all of these, and, like you, I share a love of coral lippies in the summer! I’ve been wearing tangerine/coral/pinks a lot lately. I just picked up my first EF products from the Urban Outfitters sale, and I can’t wait to try them. Thanks for the giveaway!

  21. Betzy Carmona says

    I still haven’t come across their line

  22. Both Eddie and his products are amazing.

  23. Kiki is gorgeous!

  24. Skinny Dip is my favorite.

  25. Okay, now I can’t stop singing… Let’s have a Kiki!. It looks like it will be my summer song yet again this year!

  26. Of the three, I think Kiki is my favorite!

  27. Katherine says

    I like to wear very sheer products on my lips during the summer–pinky/peach colors!

  28. Katherine says

    The EF Skinny Dip is beautiful!!

  29. Natalia Rosca says

    I love the Skinny Dip color since I’m often out for business meetings and I usually try to keep the look very clean and soft. But I definitely like the other two shades as well, since they are perfect for a summer event or a night out.
    I’ve been using Eddie Funkhouser’s products for a long time now and they keep on reaching my top favorite brand of cosmetics since they have a very, very high quality and they offer the exact results you expect!

  30. My favorite shade is rose.

  31. SimplyMargie says

    I love shades like Skinny Dip. It is easy to build and be dramatic with, but it can also be a very subtle ‘out for a picnic’ type of shade.

  32. Meredith says

    I’ve never heard of this brand before, but the shades are lovely. I tend to wear less all-over makeup in the summer, so I tend to go for a bold lip color and let that be it. I’m wearing MAC’s Ruby Woo these days, because I like to break it out around the American high holy days!

  33. Out of these colors, I really like Skinny Dip. Out of my own collection, I love wearing MAC’s Hue lipstick.

  34. Eddie Funkhouser is a terrific brand–great quality.

    My favorite lip gloss shade to wear in the summer is a peachy-pink.

  35. Natalie Brown says

    Hello! These are sooooo pretty! My favorite lip colors for the Summer time are deep coral and pinky berry. Too much fun! Thank-you for the chance in this awesome giveaway!

  36. B. Leonard says

    My favorite shade in the summer is a toned down pink – not bubblegum! It looks more natural than a bright or light pink on me. Nudes on me look awful!

  37. I would stand on my head if it helped to win this giveaway. I want to try this line SO badly. Anyway, I usually like the corals for summer, but this year, (maybe because it’s mostly been rainy), I’ve been pulling out my baby pinks. Fabo giveaway, girl!

  38. Ooh Kiki looks lovely. In the summer, I love COLOR, especially Nars Heat Wave.

  39. Mamavalveeta03 says

    Looks like we’ve all heard about you now, Eddie!!! And “I’ve got the music in me!”

  40. Chic Southern Charm says

    I love the Love Rush!

  41. Sophia Wu says

    Definitely a nude color 😀
