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. funkhauser mascara closed

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.

Your friend,

*press sample provided for this first one, I’ll be buying it in the future!

P.S. to my readers: You have got to check out this review at The Fabzilla about Eddie Funkhouser since her mascara pictures are fabulous and will show you the 4 settings better than I could possibly do.

  1. Wow. I want this now. I haven’t seen the brand at Rite Aid yet but I will be checking. Sounds terrific.

  2. I’ll want to try this. Looking forward to the time when EF’s line arrives at Rite Aid.

  3. I have seen his products on the net here and there but didn’t know the line would be sold at Rite Aid. Only problem is, I live in a state that has no Rite Aid, just CVS and Walgreens. Hopefully, his line will be in one of those in the near future.

  4. I think it’s supposed to be online at Rite Aid too. I can’t wait because I love this mascara and I love his liquid eyeliner. I’m anxious to see more of the line too.

  5. @The Style Page – I’ve been stalking my Rite Aid. I can’t wait to see more of this line.

  6. @Nancy – you won’t be sorry. My next review is going to make you want Eddie Funkhouser even more.

    Wonderful post and thanks so much for the mention, yay! I like this mascara for my lower lashes because it does not smear or smudge throughout the day. Such a rarity especially among drugstore brands!

  8. @Kath, you know I loved your review. I’d have stolen your pictures if I could. LOL. I don’t have enough lashes for bottom mascara but I know this one would be great if I did.

  9. Another great post!

  10. Heading to Rite Aid…..

  11. @Cindy – it’s not there yet. But you will love it when it does get there.

  12. I just started testing this mascara, too. I love it as well! 🙂 I love how it gives amazing length while also not clumping nor smudging. Pretty near perfect!!!!

    @Pammy, I need this to be available to buy so I don’t run out.
