I am reallly excited to bring this review to you guys today!
I don't usually write much in my product reviews because I like the pictures to speak for themselves.
HOWEVER, when a product or brand comes along that is over-the-top amazing, I MUST review this in full!!!
So please, read everything, it will be worth it, I promise!
I think this company is way beyond it's years. Especially when it comes to it's packaging. Everything is housed in these slim, sleek, bullet-shaped pens. Everything, well almost everything, from this line is in liquid form.
All can be easily carried in a space-saving Ellis Holder, check it out here. The brains behind the brand is, what I think, outstanding and super interesting. Read all about Ellis Faas here. Vogue Paris cited Ellis Faas as "one of the most influential make-up artists of her time." She happened to fall into her passion of makeup through her passion of photography. She has worked with the most famous designers, celebrities, and for some of the most well-known makeup companies including MAC, Lancome and Clinique. You know the brand Biotherm? She was asked by L'Oreal to create the makeup range for Biotherm! Read on, enjoy the products and swatches.
I am going to try to get a youtube tutorial up soon, using these products.
Please comment, and let me know what you think!
Made with essential oils, rose water and vitamins C and E, ELLIS FAAS blush gives cheeks a touch of colour while cooling and toning the skin for an instant fresh look. Apply a dot of colour directly to the middle of the cheek with the signature ELLIS FAAS pen and fade out with your fingertips or with the sponge that comes with the powder. ELLIS FAAS blush ensures a dewy finish and long-lasting glow.
Love this shade! It's the perfect peachy-pink!
Long lasting, gives you a dewy glow and it's packed with nutrients.
With a more translucent texture than Creamy Eyes, and a deeper, more vivid palette, ELLIS FAAS Milky Eyes can be used as a colour stain or a subtle wash.
For a soft and sophisticated look, use the specifically designed ELLIS FAAS Milky Eyes sponge applicator to apply Milky Eyes all over the eyelid, then fade it with the fingertips. For more intense colour, simply re-apply a second layer of Milky Eyes. (Ellis particularly likes applying Milky Eyes across the lid and then intensifying the colour in a second layer close to the lashes.)
Pair Creamy Eyes and Milky Eyes for a dramatic look: First use Creamy Eyes for shape, then add Milky Eyes for a sheen of colour.
This shade is difficult for me to describe, I think it's safe to say that it's a bronzed-rose shade.
It feels AMAZING!! Hydrating, yet it stays in place, it's fast, quick and easy to use!
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.
This is a gorgeous peachy-nude shade.
It's definitely on the warmer side.
It's smooth, hydrating and non-stick (gotta love that)!

(my take on this brand)
I am a HUGE fan of liquid and cream cosmetic products. Some prefer the all-mineral loose powders. Unfortunately, I never got into that; especially applying nothing but powder on my face- yuck!
It just does not feel right, to me.
I LOVE cream/liquid eyeshadows (as long as they do not crease), cream/liquid foundation and concealer, and especially cream/liquid blush!
The ONLY downside to this brand is the price. It is definitely pricey!!
So I would imagine some of you might be pretty "iffy."
Is it worth purchasing a $36 eyeshadow in a stick??
See, some of the colors are so unique and cannot be duplicated.
You can probably TRY to duplicate the color, with little success, but you CANNOT duplicate amazing texture!
So what do you recommend I try first, since I am on a limited budget?
I would consider starting with the blush. The one I reviewed (S302) would work well with all skin tones.
I haven't tried their foundation, concealer, mascara, liners and such. Hopefully I can get you a review of those in the near future. But LET ME KNOW if you want the review of those products.
When a company sends me complementary products for review purposes on my blog, I admit that I tend to feel a slight obligation to that company. However, because I have been receiving enough products over a long period of time, now I know what is worthy of a feature and what isn't.
I am not going to feature anything that isn't worthy for you guys to read.
I will not do a review on products I don't believe in.
With that said, I believe in Ellis Faas! I really truly do!
I feel very privileged and honored to be able to review this brand for you guys.
Have you tried it? What do you think about it? Please comment!!
