Dear Eddie Funkhouser,
Please don’t take offense but until about a month ago I’d never heard of you. I didn’t know you were an acclaimed makeup artist. I didn’t know you were from Australia. I didn’t know that you were so adorable either. A PR rep contacted me and asked if I wanted to try out a new “masstige” line that would be featured at Rite Aid. Of course I said yes since my goal is to try out every line available while I can. Then one day in my mail arrived a cute box and three items – a liquid eyeliner, a mascara and a pastel eyeshadow palette. As usual, I waited until I could photograph these in their pristine state and then was able to use them.
I have been so impressed with the mascara that I need a separate post just for this. Eddie Funkhouser Quattro Variable Lash Mascara is one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried. It’s now in my list of top three mascaras of all time. While I haven’t tried every mascara available Quattro Variable Lash Mascara has made me want to stop buying new ones (not that I will since I am a makeup blogger/junkie after all). Not only does this make my lashes look fantastic but it does tricks. It’s not a one trick pony as they say. Of course you know this but my readers need to know.
There are 4 settings on the Quattro Variable Lash Mascara as the name implies. The bottom of the tube swivels from one dot to four dots. The more you twist, the more volume you get:
• = Enhance and accentuate lashes while leaving them looking natural
•• = Separate lashes creating fullness and volume
••• = Separate lashes for extra fullness and volume
•••• = Create maximum length, separation and definition
I started with one dot, went to two and now switch between two & three. On nights out though I can pump it up to four dots to create the ultimate in Eddie Funkhouser eyelashes. As you twist the dial to a new number the brush changes. Setting 1 you saw a straight brush, now in setting 3 you see how the brush has turned so you get a different type of application.
As far as I know this isn’t a tubing mascara but when I go to remove it I do find bits of it on my face. I always use a specific eye makeup remover with it since the color is so intense that I want to take it off gently. With a cotton square and eye makeup remover it comes off easily but I don’t think water alone would be enough.
Eddie, I can’t wait until this is online and at my local Rite Aid store. For $12.99 (but hopefully sales) I’ll be buying this for sure. When I have no smudging even by the end of the day, when I still have curl at the end of the day, and when I have lashes that I can intensify as needed then I think I’ve found a keeper. Thanks for creating something so wonderful.
