ELLIS FAAS Products - ReviewApril 20, 2013
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.
The Ellis Faas sent me some products for testing and I was so amazed when I received them. I can describe the products in 3 words: quality, professional and unique.
I was impressed from the packaging till the shape of the products and the quality.
All the products are pen shaped, which I find very original and I can conclude that they are very luxurious products. I so love them.
The Creamy Eyes no. E125, khaki green
At first I was a bit skeptical about the creamy eye shadow, cause I`ve had some bad experiences with them in the past, that`s why I use only dusty ones. But this one made me changed my opinion, cause except it is very very pigmented, it lasts a lot and the most important it doesn`t shine. It remains intact without any modification for hours.
WHAT – The lifting, firming and protecting Creamy Eyes formula glides on like velvet. Even a thin layer of this formula is extremely long-wearing and will stay fixed until taken off with a cleanser.
WHY – Creamy Eyes is ideal for a quick smoky eye, providing sufficient playtime before drying. Creamy Eyes can also be used like a thick pencil.
ACTIVE INGREDIENTS – Para Cress flower extract stimulates natural skin-lifting capabilities. Coffee extract works to increase collagen and elastin production while also increasing natural skin defenses. Extreme wear is delivered through the synthetic filming polymers in volatile oils. The spongy soft mousse-like consistency of the texture is achieved through the innovative siliconic wax and siliconic gel in combination with beeswax.
HOW – Use it like a thick pencil around the eye or in the eyelid crease, or cover the entire eyelid using the built-in ELLIS FAAS Creamy Eyes brush, then fade the edges with the fingertips. For extra drama, experiment with layering multiple colours of Creamy Eyes.
