A couple of years ago, I won a giveaway that gave me the chance to try two beautiful Eddie Funkhouser lipsticks (reviewed here). I was smitten.
Eddie Funkhouser is professional makeup artist and the powerhouse behind Eddie Funkhouser Cosmetics. He’s also a terrific person. 😛 Another thing that I love about him is that he includes a fanciful autograph with every package I have ever received from him. What a great signature!
Today, I’d like to show you Eddie’s gorgeous blush singles, Ultra Intensity Cheek Singles, as well as a new highlight and contour compact, Ultra Definition Cheek Bronzer & Sculpt Powder. Cheek makeup always gives me an instant pick-me-up, and these are beauties.
Let’s start with the blush.
Ultra Intensity Cheek Singles
The 4 shades in the collection are:
- Peep Show: hot pink
- Sidestreet Blossom: pinky peach
- A Little Toasted: browned peach
- Plum Crazy: pink plum
I love all four of the shades. They’re nicely pigmented. Peep Show is a perfect summer shade. Sidestreet Blossom is a classic pinky peach, fairly close to NARS Orgasm but without the gold glitter that some people dislike. Both Plum Crazy and A Little Toasted are great transitional season shades, and I’ll love them in the fall.
I was very pleasantly surprised to discover how buttery the Ultra Intensity Cheek Singles feel. The micromilled powder blends easily and grabs onto the skin even without primer. I haven’t had any powdery fallout. They last well on my skin. Another thing I love about Eddie is that he gives you a makeup artist tip along with each of his products on the website. For instance, he recommends applying powder to your cheeks before you apply blush so that the color won’t cling to one spot but will be evenly distributed. Give that a try!!

Ultra Definition Bronze & Sculpt Powder
The package of cheek makeup that I received from Eddie last week must have had a tough voyage on its way to me because the Ultra Definition Bronze & Sculpt Powder didn’t fare too well in transit. It had turned to powder that was everywhere in the box! Thankfully, he sent me another!
The Ultra Definition Bronze & Sculpt Powder is soooooo pretty in its compact. It reminds me of Neapolitan ice cream shades. Yummy. I also love the embossing.
To be honest, I seldom wear bronzer and I don’t highlight and contour very often. One of the key reasons that I don’t is that the shades are always too deep, too orangey or just too much for my mature skin. At this stage of the game, I need highlight and contour products that are subtle, that whisper rather than scream. Ultra Definition Bronze & Sculpt Powder fits the bill for me perfectly. But if you are looking for bronzer, highlighter and contouring powder that stand out, this compact will not be for you.
The overall shade of the compact is called Pyramid Bronze. The five shades include two highlighters and three sculpting powders that you can easily use individually or you can take your blush brush and swipe across the entire pan. Here are the swatches over face primer with my own descriptions of the shades.
- cafe au lait
- milk chocolate
- pale pinky peach
- mixture of all the shades
As you can see, some of the shades are very close to my own skin tone.
Like the blush singles, the Bronze & Sculpt Powder feels buttery, isn’t powdery, and is easy to blend. This is one contour and highlighter compact that I feel comfortable using.
Eddie Funkhouser Bronzer & Sculpt Powder compact contains 10g and is priced at $12.99.
INGREDIENTS: TALC, MICA, DIMETHICONE, MAGNESIUM STEARATE, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLICERIDE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, ALUMINA, T R I E T H O X Y C A P R Y L Y S I L A N E , PHENOXYETHANOL. MAY CONTAIN: IRON OXIDES (CI 77491, CI77492, CI77499), TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI77891), ULTRAMARINES (CI77007).
