Ellis Faas Creamy Lips L105 [Review&Swatches]

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Recently I have been crazy for lipsticks as I was totally a lip gloss lover but recently why and how I have no idea my love for lipsticks started going stronger and I tried to get lipsticks who has good staying power as well as have wide range of color selection. So today's post is going to be about Ellis Faas . Do you know the  lady behind the brand is cited as the 'Most Influential Makeup Artist' of her time by Vogue Paris , is not it sounds amazing ? 

About Ellis Faas :

Vogue Paris cited Ellis Faas as "one of the most influential make-up artists of her time". And indeed, she has worked with the world's most pre-eminent fashion designers, photographers, stylists, hairdressers and models. Ellis’ work has been published on the covers of the world’s best-known fashion magazines. Additionally, Ellis has worked for make-up brands, such as Clinique, Lancôme and MAC Cosmetics – and she was asked by L'Oréal to create a make-up line for their skin care brand, Biotherm. After the contract with L’Oréal ended in 2007, the way was paved for her to create her own brand: ELLIS FAAS.

Ellis was born and raised in the Netherlands. From an early age on, Ellis had a good eye for fashion, coupled with a strong opinion about what was or wasn't beautiful. She plastered her bedroom walls with images from Vogue and would often make her own clothes (sometimes with great success; other times failing miserably). She also developed a passion for photography, especially in the documentary, portrait and over-stylised fashion and beauty genres.

About Ellis Lips :

Three textures, 27 colours: ELLIS LIPS offer a range of looks, from stained and subtle to vivid and glossy. ELLIS RED, the ELLIS FAAS signature colour, is available in all three textures: Creamy Lips, Milky Lips and Glazed Lips.
ELLIS LIPS products are lightweight, long-lasting and easy to apply. Paraben-free and loaded with Vitamin E 
they also blend into the lips without leaving a sticky residue, leaving the lips soft and conditioned.

About 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.

    My Verdict :

I have always been crazy about lip glosses and lip balms but few months back I don't know how my love for lipsticks started to grow and I started my hunt for good lipsticks with good staying power whilst searching some good brands I came across with Ellis Faas I got really impressed and let me tell you I am really so picky and choosy and its really so hard to impress me and as soon as I started browsing their products I genuinely fell in love . I have always been crazy for lipglosses and now for lipsticks and I am getting crazy for lip colors shades which would different from the shade that we usually can get easily and this time I was searching except nudes as I am a huge nude lipstick/lip gloss lover and always ended up getting a nude lip gloss and when I started to get lipsticks same goes for that as well but now I want to get some bright yet fun shades which we usually aint wear in our daily life yet still looks beautiful on lips and compliment skin tones so well and let me tell you if I am saying un-usual and different colors by this I really don't mean odd or dirty colors. 

As I told above as soon as I started browsing the site I fell in love completely, the products seems so promising and the thing which attracts my mind is their packaging .  Ellis Faas all products comes in stylish sleek sliver pen which looks incredibly beautiful . The product is taken out by twisting the pen and after fewer clicks you can get the product which is very handy to use and you can see the shade number at the bottom .

The shade which I got is Ellis Faas Creamy Lips L105 which is a beautiful Rusty Brown color and when I got the shade and when I saw the color I was thinking I am not going to like it as its too dark and odd color for me but as soon as I twisted up the pen and product oozed out until then I was unsure that I am going to love the color I'd definitely say that was not the Love At 1st Sight but Love At 1st Application because as soon as I applied the product on lips I instantly fall in love the color is such beautiful color which I at-least never found till yet in any brand . It is beautiful brown with rusty undertone and compliment fair to medium skin tones so well but I think it can suits every skin tone as it has such beautiful rusty undertone . 

I must admit what a long wear lipstick that goes opaque in 1st sweep by giving pure color and beautiful shiny finish  that lasts for me up to 5-6 hours easily . What amazed me the most is its after application effect it is like I am not having any thing on my lips and also hydrate lips and left them so smooth as Vitamin E and Prune Seed Extract is an active ingredients . The texture of the lipstick is OH-SO-AH-MAZING . Its highly pigmented and covering full coverage lipsticks which gives great definition to your lips both as fully covering shade or just a mere beautiful stain . When I applied it I literally can feel the smoothness of this cream lip color which spread effortlessly and so smoothly . You need just small amount to give it a go on lips and believe me 'Little Goes A Long Way' as its HIGHLY PIGMENTED . And if I write its staying powder it is just excellent . Staying power is just amazing they stayed there on my lips 5-6 easily without retouching/eating/drinking which I think is quite enough after drinking/eating you can easily retouch with your sleek stylish pen .

When I applied this on my lips I could not stop myself keep on staring on my lips as they were looking just flawless and velvety smooth its so light weight . The texture is excellent enough to fall in love and its sponge applicator makes application so handy and precise and I love using it with its own applicator . May be some of you don't like to apply with your lip brush  if you think its un-hygienic but for me the best way is to apply it with its own spongy applicator . One or two sweeps is enough if you want opaque and high coverage on lips if you want a matte finish just dab it with tissue paper once you applied it by doing this the color settles on lips for a long time .

My Rating : 


Overall I'd say I am very pleased and I totally recommend you to try at least once Ellis Faas Lip Creams the thing that amazed me that they are easy to remove with just one sweep without taking much effort and leaving single stain on lips as if there were nothing on the lips .

Ellis Lips are price 35$ USD  for 2.8 ml . You can buy from their Offical Website Here . They ship worldwide .
