I reviewed an Ellis Faas Cream eyeshadow earlier this week – and it was quite nice although I wasn’t convinced by the colour.
Here is a Milky Lips lip colour (not a lipstick, not quite a lip gloss) in Ellis Red, a classic blood red shade.
There are 2 other textures – Glazed Lips (glossy) and Creamy Lips (rich and creamy…sounds like my kind of lip!).
Once again, its that phallic…slightly skinny phallic bullet lip tube:
Milky Lips helps to achieve a more fluid lip – even if you only apply a feather-light layer, the colour will still be discernible. Additionally, emollient oils within the product will also make your lips appear fuller and enhance their 3D effect.
Ellis Red is a shade of blood red, replicating the shade of Snow White’s lips.
The Brush Applicator:
No accidents this time. The colour came out easily….
Here is their lip swatch for this colour, a L201:
God I love those lip swatches.
On my it goes more orange – not as blood red as I hoped. I could do a few more layers I guess to make it really dark or add some black gloss…oohh yes that would be nice:
Once again, I am not 100% sure about the shade but I can see lots of other shades on the site I would love to try one day.
The texture is pretty nice – its pigmented, its quite hydrating I have no complaints there. It reminds me of my Chanel Laque in Mandarin little…but slightly, just slightly less vivid.
I believe Ellis Faas is sold in Liberty (London) or here for 25 euros.
