It's Wednesday, which mean the week is half over (or just begun for some of you!) and I'm excited to be going away this upcoming weekend for a short break with my Mom!

I was lucky enough to try out:

Ultra Intensity Cheek Color in "Peep Show"
Hyperreal Eye Color Palette in "Bedroom Eyes"
Hyperreal Pure Pigment in "Dollicious"
Chromographic Lip Color in "Strip Search"
Hyperreal Hydrating Lip Gloss in "Belle de Jour"







Pink lippies for the win!


"Dollicious" eye pigment. My favorite product!


Swatches:








For this look I used:

Eyes: Bedroom Eyes palette- "Sassy on lid", "Risque" in the crease, "Coy" as a highlight, and then I used "Dollicious" eye pigment in my lower lash line
Liner: Eddie Funkhouser Graffiti Cream Eye Pencil in "Absolute Black"
Blush: "Peep Show"
Lips: "Strip Search" with a light swipe of "Belle de Jour"

I am absolutely in love with "Bedroom Eyes" and "Dollicious". The shades in the palette are pigmented, smooth and blendable. "Coy" has lots of sparkle but works perfectly as a highlight color. "Risque" the matte shade is really easy to blend and isn't chalky at all. "Dollicious" is a beautiful rose color with gold undertones and comes in the cutest container I've seen for far for pigments! It's also super pigmented and easy to work with.

The lippies I received are both so moisturizing om the lips. Neither have much of a smell or taste, which is bonus in my both. Neither are tacky or sticky and are buildable for light to full coverage. "Belle de Jour" wasn't as bold and bright as I'd expected just looking at the tube, which means it's a super wearable, every day pink.

"Peep Show" is the perfect bubble gum pink blush. There is no sparkle or shine, it's just a perfect matte pink and with this, just a little will do ya! Or a lot, if you prefer.. do your thing. ;)

Eddie has wonderfully pigmented, and cutting edge products at an affordable price! I'm really excited about this brand and to see how it (he) develops as a company!

So the best thing about this post? Well, YOU, yeah YOU could win an entire set of products like the ones I reviewed. Eddie was kind enough to offer the products he sent to me, to one of my lucky readers. He'll send them directly to my winner once the giveaway is over. :D  See below on how to enter and good luck! :D
