Ellis faas Lips- Review, Swatches & LOTDs

Hi beautiful ladies,
Today I’m reviewing some lovely products from one of the best brands I have ever used. I always have been crazy about lip colors. No matter it comes as a lipstick, lip gloss or in any other shape & form. I have used many brands, some are famous ones while some not-so famous.
But I’m sure most of you must have heard about Ellis Faas cosmetics and their amazing products.
About Ellis Faas brand & their color concept
Most of us especially in India don’t know that the lady behind this brand is cited as the ‘most influential make-up artist of her time’ by Vogue Paris.
Ellis Faas based the whole collection of her brand on the colours that by nature exist in every human body. From all tones of foundation to every lipstick and eyeshadow, the shades are inspired by the human body’s owns colours.
From the tawny peach of a freckle to the pure, vivid red that pulses through our veins, the ELLIS FAAS Human Colours collection looks to the human palette for inspiration. The colours 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 Colours 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 Colours 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.
I have heard a lot about this brand not only from some great bloggers but even from some of my friends but never got chance to try it. Now that I have used some of its lip colors, I’m really very impressed by their products!!!
Ellis Lips
I want to write something about their lips range. They come in 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 claims
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.
Net weight
2.8 ml.
US $35
The packaging of Ellis lip colors is very classy. All products come in pen/bullet shape inside an elegant packet. After opening the cap of the pen you just need to twist the bottom for the product to come out. The difference is only that the creamy lips have a sponge tip applicator while the other two Glazed & Milky come with brush tips applicator.
I have already mentioned that Ellis lips come in three different textures first-Milky lips, second-Creamy lips and the third-Glazed lips
From L-R: Glazed lips, Milky lips, Creamy lips
Milky lips L202: In the mirror of my own experience
It’s an amazing shade. I never used even saw such shade before in any brand yet. It’s a blood shot shade, looks amazing on the lips. Usually I don’t use such deep shade at any occasion but after applying it, I’ll love to apply it some special occasion. I’m sure all eyes will be on me LOL!!!
Final thoughts
I love its quality. Lasting power is impressive. Being a very deep shade, it will not be in much use but if someone loves deep shades, would really love to apply this unique shade.

Creamy lips L106: In the mirror of my own experience
It’s a wonderful shade. Light brown with pinkish undertone. Looks elegant on the lips. This shade can be used for any occasion even in daily use even if you are a office going person. Looks beautiful and perfect on both Indian and Western dresses. The texture is creamy and applies on my lips so easily because the sponge applicator is very comfortable for applying.
If I call it the most impressive lip color in all three, I will not be wrong. The lasting power of this lip color makes it an elegant and classy product. It can stay on your lips even for the whole day. You don’t need reapply it again and again like most of the other lipsticks. I really love this lipstick.
Using L106
Glazed lips L305
It has a glossy texture and very pigmented in spite of being a light shade. The shade is very unique and different like yellowish beige and it makes my lips so plumpy. I've never used such a lovely shade before. I had seen a shade something like this in Mac Mickey Contractor’s lip gloss Flesh but couldn’t find it due to the L.E. Now I’m so happy to find something similar.
It really makes your look different and eligible.
Final thoughts
Amazing lasting power, easy to apply very light weight but still so pigmented, WOW, what a quality. I’m loving it guys!!!!
Using L305

Overall I can say that I feel very lucky to have got a chance to try these amazing lip colors from this brand. All shades are so pigmented and apply & blend like a dream. The tip applicators make the lip color applying easier. The pen shape is easy to be carried out in your purse and even feels so comfortable during applying even while you are in the your car or traveling.
The swatches:
I highly recommend these lip colors especially the glazed and creamy range to my readers. Try it once, I’m sure, you’ll love these after using once.

Now i would like to share some words about the woman behind this brand:
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.
