Eddie Funkhouser Cosmetics + Giveaway*

Happy Monday beauties!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Today's post is a long one since it includes a few reviews and a giveaway at the end so please hang in there!  Eddie Funkhouser is a well known makeup artist.  He has created his own makeup line comprised of high quality cosmetics with designer brand quality formulas at affordable prices.

I first learned of Eddie Funkhouser and his cosmetic line during a Twitter chat.  He participated and interacted with each of us, answering our general makeup questions as well as our questions about his own products.  He was so approachable and knowledgeable!

Eddie sent me a few of his products to try out.

Eddie's most recent product launch is his professional brush collection.  It includes 14 hand crafted brushes that like all of his other products, you can get for an amazing value.

Retractable Lip Brush - $8.49
Flat brush with a tapered tip ideal for application of lip color. The aluminum body is weighted for balance and features a retractable head convenient for travel. - Eddie Funkhouser
This is the smallest brush in the photo below.  The Retractable Lip Brush is weighted so it has a nice heavy feel to it.  It has a cover that you remove and place on the bottom of the brush which will cause the brush applicator to pop out.  This brush is great to apply dark lip products to get a nice precise look.

Lash Comb/Brow Brush - $8.49
Features a stainless steel styling comb on one side to separate lashes before and after mascara application, and a brow brush on the other side for combing through brows to soften color application. - Eddie Funkhouser
Everyone should have a lash comb and brow brush in their collection and this is a two-in-one.

Pro Concealer Brush - $12.99
The slightly pointed domed tip is firm yet flexible for an exacting application. - Eddie Funkhouser
This brush is packed densely so it's pretty stiff.  This is great for blending in your concealer but I prefer to use this is a flat eye shadow brush to pack product onto the lids.

Dynamic multi-tasker 4-way formula designed to: 1. Neutralize redness, 2. Correct dark circles, 3. Brighten and conceal 4. Soften the appearance of fine lines. - Eddie Funkhouser
This concealer that does a nice job covering up my dark circles.  This is the shade Light Medium.

Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Color - $11.99
Classic lipstick with intense pigments, a boost of hydration, and a lightweight yet luxurious finish.  The creamy formula is enriched with flower and mango fruit extracts and Vitamin C and E to keep lips looking luscious long after application. - Eddie Funkhouser
I'm loving this lipstick!  It's creamy and hydrating so it feels wonderful on the lips.  This is the shade Model Citizen which is described as a medium rose.  On me, it's a gorgeous natural "my lips but better" shade.

I've never used a mascara like this but it's very interesting.  Eddie suggests to apply 1-2 coats setting the dial to one dot and then 1-2 coats with the dial turned to 4 dots.  He says to wait for each coat to dry before applying a new coat.

Eddie Funkhouser Mascara - 2 coats (1 click)
Eddie Funkhouser Mascara - 3 coats (2 on 1 click, 1 on 4 clicks)

Even just using 2 coats of this mascara makes my lashes darker and longer.  Two coats of this mascara at 1 click and 1 coat at the 4th click as Eddie suggests, definitely added more volume to my lashes.  This is a really unique mascara.

Ok now the best part, Eddie is kind enough to give one of my readers 4 of these items!  The winner will receive:
Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Color - Model Citizen
Retractable Lip Brush
Quattro Variable Lash Mascara
Stainless Steel Lash Comb | Brow Brush
