Eddie Funkhouser Pro Brush Line & Foundation Review

Eddie Funkhouser has quickly become one of my favorite emerging new makeup lines. With its refined, minimalist packaging and world-class studio created formula's the line has the look and feel of prestige cosmetics delivered at an unprecedented value. Along with the beautiful makeup (see my previous review of the Belle De Jour Collection), Eddie Funkhouser has released a line of fourteen handcrafted Professional Makeup Brushes.

I received three PRO face brushes along with a primer, foundation, and concealer to road test these chic new brushes with.

Fulcrum Gallery Art Print Review : Lichtenstein Kiss V, 1964

The cool people over at mega awesome art site asked if I'd like to review one of their art prints, seeing as much of my inspiration comes from art it was a natural fit :) Fulcrum has an endless amount of artwork choices. Everything from modern, classic, pop, contemporary, to home decor styles and it's all completely customizable.

Settling on the print you want is the time consuming part, there's so many awesome ones! Customizing is quick and easy. With options to choose the size of your print, frames, glass, print placement..literally anything you want to do to make it your own. It took me about 5 minutes to select my options. The process is easy and you can see how it looks with each option instantly on the screen. I customized my print with a matte black frame, white top and black bottom mat to let the graphic "pop" more, housed in acrylic plexiglass.

I love POP ART and have been dreaming up a complete pop art wall for my home. I contemplated for hours looking over a good 2,000+ art works before getting some help from my better half to come to the decision on...

The Lichtenstein Kiss V, 1964. I love this print. The emotion, how romantically charged it is but also the representation of the times, media, and graphic style art.

Too Faced Cat Eyes Eyeshadow & Liner Palette Review

The timeless Cat Eye just got sexier for Fall. From ancient Egypt to the mod ’60s and punk ’80s to today, it’s always been an iconic beauty essential. This classic has been updated with Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette. Nine matte, shimmer and glitter textures in warm and cool tones. Included are three wet-and-dry formulas for intense precision lining and a perfect wing tip.

If I could design an eyeshadow palette this is what it would look like, the packaging is adorably ferocious. This Cat Eye Collection comes with the signature Glamour Guide with three beauty looks to get you started.

By now you've gotta know you can't really go wrong with Too Faced Palette's. The shadows are always beautiful colors with a varied mix of finishes and Cat Eyes is no exception. It was nice to see nine brand new shades inside as some of their colors can look repetitive. The color combo in this palette is very interesting. It's a mix of sheer sparkly color and dark liner shades that will easily take you from a soft pastel to an intense smokey eye. Soft creamy glowy pale pinks, bronze, lavender, a shimmering minty silver, with three dramatic dark shades of bronze, deep sparkly purple, and matte black that can be used wet or dry.

The shadow I had the most trouble with was Kitty Glitter, sad because it reminds me of a Placebo song, it was sheer with shimmery fallout everywhere. Jungle Love is a bit tough to work with dry but much more favorable when wet. Purr, Pussycat, and Tigers Eye were beautiful. There's some great shadow's in here and a few that were a miss. I would get this palette for using the dark shadows as wet liners. Those are the standouts.

2008 called it wants its look back! Couldn't help it, I spotted these born pretty eyeliner appliques far in the dark depths of my makeup drawer and they were so matchy matchy to this palette and fit the cat eye theme. Some vintage Monroe Misfit Makeup....if I start doing cut creases and rainbow eyeshadow tell me to gtfo and shut it down...just no. This palette though? Is a YES.

Too Faced Cat Eyes Palette ($36) is available now at & Planet Beauty
