Eddie Funkhouser Hyperreal Eye Color Palette

*I received this product in exchange for my honest opinion*

Hello all! Today I have another fabulous Eddie Funkhouser product to show you; it's the hyperreal eye color palette in the shade Girls On Film. Now, I have to be honest. I love the colors in this palette but I picked it just as much for the name as for the colors. See, I am a lifelong (well at least since early grade school) fan of Duran Duran so I couldn't pass up a palette with the same name of one of their best-known songs. My best friend and I used to sit in her room that was covered in Duran Duran posters from Tiger Beat and and Bop magazines daydreaming about which member of the band we wanted to marry someday. When we were in our 20's the band briefly reunited and all 5 original members were on tour and we were lucky enough to see them at the fairly small Santa Barbara Bowl. I tell you we jumped up and down and squealed like little girls when they came onstage. It was definitely one of my most memorable concerts and I will never forget it. Luckily this palette is pretty darn awesome too. 

Top Row L-R: Screen Test, Video Star
Bottom Row L-R: Freeze Frame, Snap Shop
These are the color descriptions from the website: Screen Test -"pewter with silver shimmer", Video Star - "bright purple", Freeze Frame - "matte marine blue", Snap Shot - "pearlescent cornflower blue".
I swatched these over Urban Decay Primer Potion and they are so pretty! Screen Test and Snap Shot are both shimmery. Freeze Frame is a gorgeous blue matte. And Video Star has a duochrome finish that actually shows up! I was able to slightly catch it in the picture above but it is much prettier in person. I haven't used these in a look yet, and even when I do I can't take eye look pictures to save my life so you probably won't see it, but I'm sure it's going to be gorgeous when I do. I love that there are different finishes in this palette. The pigmentation is really good and they are not too soft and not too hard. You can buy this palette for $14.99 here which is a great deal for 4 high quality eye shadows. I'm drooling over the other palettes also and hopefully I can pick them all up eventually. 

I've got 2 more Eddie Funkhouser products to show you so keep an eye out.
