It takes quite a bit for me to be completely blown away with a new makeup line.
Ellis Faas Makeup makes you look like a better version of your natural self, and the colors chosen can be used to achieve a subdued natural look - or much bolder ones. Ellis Faas also plans to launch products in the near future with shimmery powders, holographic and metal shimmers, plus various glosses to create even more festive, high fashion and edgy looks.
There are two very unique aspects about these products. The first is that all the products are fluids, and fit in same-sized long, silver “bullets” (shown below). Award-winning industrial designer Arnout Visser worked with Ellis to create the innovated, bullet product packaging. The second is that all the products "melt" into the skin instead of lie on it.
Ellis Faas line is made up of products for Skin, Eyes and Lips. Let's first take a look at my experience with the Skin products...
SKIN VEIL FOUNDATION (pictured at top of story)
Because of the unique brush, I was able to use this for larger coverage, such as the under eye area, as well as for occasional coverage for blemishes or small discolorations.
The formula was again, light and silky and applied and set quickly. Because of how pigmented and concentrated it was, a little product went a long way.I used shade #S207. The formula also contains good for your skin goodies like Vitamins E and C to hydrate and for anti-aging and regenerating properties. This comes in 8 shades.
Ah! Liquid blush without the mess.
Yes, Ellis has not only made it possible with her bullet design, but the blush itself is creamy, light and super flattering on all skin tones. I simply clicked the pen to release the blush and then added just a dot (it's also very pigmented), directly to the middle of my cheek - made super easy with the sponge tip applicator (shown above). I got great results smoothing out and blending the color with the sponge, and well as with my fingers. I used shade #S302, which is a pretty coppery-apricot shade (shown above). The finish was dewy and provided a nice glow, and it lasted all day long.
With the innovative packaging, as you can see, this line is a busy woman/traveler's dream! With just a few pens for skin, eyes and lips, you can pop them into any makeup bag/carry on, with virtually no extra weight. You can also have your complete look without having to worry about any additional brushes/applicators.
Product design and formulas like this are hard to come by, but the products are (in my opinion), reasonably priced (around $40 US Dollars for the foundation for instance). Any way you look at it, it's a purchase that you will be more than happy you made. - RLB
