An online romance or true love? Let’s ask Eddie Funkhouser…

Once upon a time there was a woman named Marcia and a man named Eddie. Somehow Eddie learned about Marcia and he started to court her. He was a makeup artist and he knew that Marcia loved makeup, especially eye makeup. So he had his friends contact her and offer to send her a few cosmetic items. Marcia, being leery of online romances, investigated him and found out his name was Eddie Funkhouser and he was a legitimate artist as well as cosmetic creator. He was starting his own line which interested her a lot. So she allowed them to send a few things.

The first item she tried was the Eddie Funkhouser Quattro Variable Lash Mascara. This hit her hard. She was falling under Eddie’s spell just from one product. She let him know and wrote him a letter expressing her love and excitement about what he was doing. She contacted him on Facebook and let him know there too. He was nice and so much fun but he couldn’t tell her when she’d be able to buy another one.

Months went by and Marcia was now using his Ultra Defining Eye Lining Stylus all the time. This liquid eyeliner had taken her love for Eddie and his mascara to a new level. She was chomping at the bits waiting to purchase these 2 products. At last the day came, 11/7/13, a day she can’t forget since she instantly went online and placed an order. Her mascara was long gone and she had nightmares about finishing up or losing her Eye Lining Stylus so she ordered those. And with Marcia being infatuated with eyeshadows she had to buy some of those too, she knew that would make Eddie happy.

And that’s where we are in this article – Hyperreal Eye Color ($8.49 each). Choosing colors online isn’t the easiest thing so it took her a long time to make up her mind. What she ended up with was THE BENJAMINS, described as a shimmering dark forest green, and NEW BOHEME, described as a shimmering forest green. These shades aren’t exactly forest greens, at least the forests that she’s been to, but describing the shades isn’t the easiest thing to do. New Boheme is lighter than most forest greens, it’s a midtone green that has a satiny finish. The Benjamins has more blue to it and is more of a spruce green; it has a light amount of shimmer that’s not the least bit overwhelming.

When you open these pans you can see a glitter to them but they don’t translate that way on the eye. It is important to use an eyeshadow primer with these so that they’ll last longer and be more vibrant. Unfortunately the website doesn’t enlarge the shadows so you can see them more clearly. Marcia is going to have to write to Eddie about this! The eyeshadows layer really well.

This romance is still in the beginning stages. With 12 total eyeshadows to explore, Marcia feels that there are a lot more dates to come. And of course she wants to know more about Eddie and his blushes, foundation, and lip products. The two of them are into this for the long run. At the current time they are keeping the relationship online at the Eddie Funkhouser website. Marcia is anxiously awaiting the appearance of Eddie at more Rite Aid stores and at Urban Outfitters. She knows that if Eddie is in town she’ll be the first to run into his arms and flutter her lashes at him. She’s sure that he’s awaiting that day too.
