Every day of the week there’s a national something day – National Ice Cream Day, National Hot Dog Day, National Cat Day, National Pretzel Day – but for us every day is National Lip Day not just the recently celebrated one that all the cosmetic companies have had specials for. And what are we choosing for National Lipstick Day? Eddie Funkhouser of course. We’ve had a long standing relationship with Eddie but he disappeared on us for a while. We are celebrating his reappearance with him and his line by sharing some of his lip products and he’s celebrating with you by offering a giveaway for 3 Beauty Info Zone subscribers.
There are 3 types of lip products that Eddie has created: Chromographic Lipsticks (Saturate lips with vibrant hues and light reflecting particles for a creamy finish and eye-catching multi-dimensional effects. The color collection ranges from neutrals to brights for a subtle or stand-out pout. Lips stay hydrated and nourished with flower and mango fruit extracts and Vitamins C & E.), Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Color (Update the 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 Vitamins C & E to keep lips looking luscious long after application.), and Hyperreal Hydrating Lip Gloss (A lightweight, low-tack formula that provides a brilliant, color-rich, multidimensional finish to lips in universal shades. Vitamins A, C & E nourish and brighten and Aloe Vera moisturizes and soothes.).
Today we have the Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Color and Hydrating Lip Gloss to introduce you to but you’ll also have a chance to win the Chromographic Lip Color too.
MARCIA LOVES LIPSTICK SO SHE’S SHARING EDDIE FUNKHOUSER HYPERREAL NOURISHING LIP COLOR
There are 6 lipsticks in the Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Color line, 3 warm and 3 cool shades. These are what I think lipsticks should look like and feel like. They are definitely nourishing so the name is apt. They have a shiny look so lines aren’t emphasized. No they aren’t matte, which is the rage now, but I’d rather have comfort personally than a lipstick that looks dry on me but is considered hot. As a moisturizing lipstick they last on me about 4 hours which is a happy amount of time.
Let’s check out all these colors:
At first when I opened these I was sure that Ignition would be my favorite but I’m so drawn to Quiet Riot that it surprises me. Ignition is a beautiful cherry red and the truest red in this group. Quiet Riot is also a beautiful red but one that leans more purple while Rumor is a deep dark red that is siren like. I’m surprised how much I like both of the red ones but they are bright and striking.
Eddie Funkhouser Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Colors in Innuendo, Model Citizen and Foxy Brown sort of look alike in my photos taken in indoor light but they are really uniquely different. Innuendo is my kind of color, it’s a great nude that looks especially good on me with pinky peach blush. Again I was surprised with Model Citizen since I normally only go for the lightest shades but Model Citizen kicks the nude up a notch and looks like I actually have real lipstick on! Foxy Brown is a truer brown shade.
I’m happy to recommend these lipsticks which are only $11.99 and provide fragrance free color, moisture and beauty for your lips. You won’t be able to resist them.
LISA LOVES LIP GLOSS SO SHE’S SHARING EDDIE FUNKHOUSER HYPERREAL HYDRATING LIP GLOSS
I am a lip gloss girl. I love the ease of lip gloss. I need some slip on my lips and I always want a little color even if I am just kicking around the house. Eddie Funkhouser’s Hyperreal Hydrating Lip Glosses range from barely there shades to totally there, and they give lots of slip without any sticky yuck that can ruin a good lip gloss. The formula is truly lovely because it includes vitamins A, C, and E to nourish lips, as well as aloe vera to keep lips super hydrated and soft.
I tested seven of the twelve shades available. Broadway Babe is clear with silver shimmer; Meow Meow is a light vanilla shimmer; Unapologetic is a light creamy pink; Mirror Kisses is a shimmery peachy pink; Love Rush is a shimmery medium pink; Stolen Kisses is a metallic mauve; Belle de Jour is a creamy fuchsia.
If you have pigmented lips, you can wear Broadway Babe and Meow Meow by themselves. If you are like me and you don’t, then these goes beautifully over lip liner or matte lipstick. All the other shades have enough pigment to stand on their own. My favorites are Mirror Kisses and Belle du Jour…but honestly all the shades are beautiful!!
