Ellis Faas | Milky x Creamy x Glazed Lip Color | Review

The concept behind Ellis Faas Cosmetics is definitely one of a kind. Unique, Iconic and Intriguing are just a few of the words that come to mind when describing the brand.  Each color from the entire collection are shades inspired by the human body's own colors.

The ELLIS FAAS Human Colors collection looks to the human palette for inspiration. The colors that exist naturally in our bodies are complex and rich, but they're also universal, shared by each and every one of us. Based on this universal spectrum, ELLIS FAAS Human Colors complement all skin tones, and when it comes to looking one's best, what better way to highlight a great feature or mask an imperfection than with tones and hues that already exist in each of us? Made with the highest quality ingredients, ELLIS FAAS Human Colors inspire exploration: No matter what complexion, age or style, with ELLIS FAAS a woman can customise her own look with subtle effects or dramatic flair with colours that are sure to complement and flatter

Ellis Lips
Consist of three textures ( Milky, Creamy, Glazed ) and 27 colors. Offering a range of looks, from stained and subtle to vivid and glossy.

Milky Lips
For a more fluid and translucent appearance, try Milky Lips. For a subtle look with just a trace of colour, either apply a feather-light layer all over the lips or apply Milky Lips to the middle of the lips and fade it with the fingertips.

[ Color - L202 ]
a brownish red

Creamy Lips
For classic lipstick definition and longwearing coverage, use soft and velvety Creamy Lips. Apply Creamy Lips with the spongy applicator first by painting the lips with just a small amount of lipstick, then fully load the applicator to fill inside of the lips. Versatile Creamy Lips is also great for a more stained effect -- just load a tiny bit of the lipstick onto the applicator, apply and blot for a matte stain.

[ Color - L107 ]
a creamy nude

Glazed Lips
Turn to ELLIS FAAS Glazed Lips for an ultra-wet, yet long-lasting splash of colour that combines transparency and intensity. Load the pen and slick on Glazed Lips for hours of coverage. Glazed Lips is made from plant seed oils that hydrate, as well as Tocotrienol (a powerful antioxidant and component of Vitamin E), Vitamin C, and Omegas 3 and 6. If you blot the lips after application, you will achieve a more subtle stained look.

Glow: All three colors are incredibly vibrant! The applicators which consist of a brush and a shower head like design, makes it effortless to apply without creating a mess. Each color was long lasting and remained bright throughout the day.

Glare: My only gripe is that the bullet shaped pens that contain the products all look exactly the same. The colors are labeled at the bottom of each pen but I think it would've been also helpful if each pen actually said "lip gloss" or " eyeshadow". Just something more identifiable to know what's what, especially if you have more than a couple products aligned together. Also, it takes several clicks to get the product on to the applicator but that's only during the initial application, It was smooth sailing after breaking it in :o)

Would I Recommend It? Absolutely!

Overall Glam:  Ellis Faas is luxury at your fingertips. A consistent formula that delivers highly pigmented color with every application! All lip colors are currently retailed at $25 each. To learn more about Ellis Faas or to purchase, please visit www.ellisfaas.com .
