The twelfth day of Christmas giveaway with Eddie Funkhouser

Sadly today is the last day of our Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway. Happily it’s for EDDIE FUNKHOUSER COSMETICS which we totally love and are proud to be sharing with one of our readers. You’ve heard me rave about their products for years. That’s only because they are so fabulous! We review a lot of brands on Beauty Info Zone but not many touch our hearts. Eddie Funkhouser touches my heart. I love supporting an independent makeup line, especially one where the products are reasonably priced and so fabulous.

Two items started me on my Eddie Funkhouser journey – the Quattro Variable Lash Mascara and the Ultra Definition Eye Lining Stylus so I had to include these in this giveaway.
QUATTRO VARIABLE LASH MASCARA has been raved about over and over on Beauty Info Zone. It’s quite unique since there are 4 levels you can use to make your lashes your best. Just twist the wand to get the amount of coverage you want. I keep it on 2 for daily use and 3 for special times.

Ultra Definition Eye Lining Stylus changed my eyeliner life. Until I used this liner I almost always used a gel eyeliner but once I realized how smooth, smudge free, and easy to use this liner was I didn’t turn back. I’ve used up 2 already, that’s how much I love this. The brush is tapered making it easy to create a thin line or a thicker one if you prefer.

The felt tip applicator is longer than any I have ever tried, which makes this liner extremely easy to use. Complicated and artistic lining is just about as easy as the basics because the liner is so user-friendly. The liner is also very long wearing and doesn’t crack or fade all day.

And just look at that beautiful bright Indigo Blue! It is really flattering and makes your eyes just POP. My favorite look is an Indigo Blue cats eye with neutral matte eyeshadow and a blackened waterline.I love it.

Definitely try out the Chella  Eyeliner Pen, particularly in Indigo Blue. These eyeliners are the ultimate felt tip liners.  – Lisa

I’ve been searching up and down the makeup aisles in drugstores, department stores and online for the perfect brown liquid eyeliner. What I didn’t know is that until April 1, 2014 this liquid eyeliner wouldn’t be for sale. To my delight Youngblood sent all 5 of their new Eye-Mazing Liquid Liner Pens to test and review and in that group I found “the one”. I have a lot of liquid eyeliners yet to write about but I couldn’t let that stop me from announcing my winner.

Let’s go back and find out what these 5 eyeliners are all about.  The Eye-Mazing Liquid Liner Pen is available in five colors: Noir (Black), Marrón (Brown), Gris (Gray), Verde (Forest Green) and Azul (Blue). The liners have a thin magic marker type stylus that is firm without being too hard. The colors are beautiful. The best part is that not only do they glide on but they have great staying power. These last me the entire day even on my bottom lashline. Since my eyes water sometimes that can be a trick but I’ve had amazing luck with these over the last month that I’ve been wearing them.

Marrón is the first of these eyeliners that I tried and it absolutely blew me away. I’ve got a cup full of brown liquid eyeliners. I have none that match the perfection of Marrón. Not only is this a perfect brown but it doesn’t bleed, it’s not watery and it lasts for me. The texture of the brush is just what I like since it is firm and never skips.

The black shade, Noir, is an extremely dark black and is the only one that is a little bit stubborn to remove. It doesn’t stain but it’s so black that I have to hold my eye makeup remover on my eye a little longer with Noir.

Gris and Noir comparison

Gris is wonderful because it’s almost impossible to find a soft gray eyeliner and even more impossible with a liquid liner. You can deepen the color by going over it several times or you can leave it as soft as you want.

Verde

Verde

Verde is a very dark forest green that can look black in some lights. But put it with the right eye makeup and you’ll see the green without being hit in the face by it. A dark green is another eyeliner that can be difficult to find in the perfect shade yet Youngblood has done it.

Azul is the only bright shade in the group. It’s not navy, it’s more of a bright cobalt blue giving you that pop of color that looks particularly great in spring and summer.

More things to love about Youngblood’s Eye-Mazing Liquid Liners: It’s easy to do a cat-eye with these because of the firmness of the brush. These are smudge-proof and water resistant. They are vegan and paraben free. And the most important thing in my book is that I’ve found the winner of my quest for the best brown liquid eyeliner. All the colors are fabulous and winners in their own right. Congratulations to Youngblood for creating these champs. — Marcia
