Here’s an Ellis Faas purchase I like and which I would recommend you to get if you want to try anything from the brand. Unlike the Creamy Eye eyeshadow which I had a lot to complain about in terms of packaging, I won’t complain as much about the lip products, despite them coming in the same packaging.
I swear you could do some serious injury with this! Too big to pick your teeth with though…
The main reason is because I can use up whatever excess comes out of the tube, but for some reason, I find this one easier to control. I just twist once and wait for a few seconds and a sufficient amount comes out to allow me to use it. Now let me show you the colour.
Ooh… ahhh… lovely!
Ellis Faas Glazed Lip L303 has no name
This lovely colour has no name. Pity. I might have called it Boysenberry. I like that name and I don’t know a lip colour with that name :P There is no shimmer and its not super high gloss either. Its pretty much just. right.
And here’s the swatch for Glazed Lips L303. Just one swipe mind you. This is lovely pigmented stuff that is not heavy nor goopy nor opaque and thick. Its not glossy or shiny despite the name “Glazed lips” but it gives a gorgeous tint of colour that you can build up to a beautiful opacity that doesn’t look overdone, or leave it as a sheer wash of colour on your lips.
Also Featuring: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation #51 Light Vanilla, Chanel Les Roses Travel Exclusive Blush, Inglot Eyeshadows
I love wearing this one everyday and I do! Layered a couple of times when I want something heavier on the lips and just 1 swipe when I don’t want to be too bold. The colour is as you see here. A pink-red I honestly believe anyone can wear and wear well.
Longevity is excellent. It takes me through to lunch looking good despite copious amounts of coffee and water and I usually do a quick touch up if I need it to look good thereafter. Ellis Faas eyeshadows may have bummed me but the Glazed Lips formula is a winner!
Pros: Lovely non sticky formula, No scent, Longlasting, Not drying, Lovely colour and texture
Cons: Twist up packaging can be a pain but I forgive it for the gorgeous formula, Pricey and unavailable in stores locally
I had to include this shot of the Inglot eyeshadow beceause I have to let you know how much I love the formula and how impressed I am by it! The problem is, Inglot eyeshadows come in numbers (brain freeze!) so I cannot remember them as well as I do names. What I can tell you is that it is a light shimmery pink (possibly 431P) layered over a deep purple from the palette I showed you last week. Bottom lined with gold (AMC45S) from the other palette.
I also picked up the Ellis Faas Creamy Lip and Milky Lip formulas so I will tell you about those soon. For now, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the Glazed Lip! If you have an Ellis Faas lip colour or formula to recommend, please do! :D
