Ellis Faas lip products comes in three textures: Creamy Lips, Milky Lips and Glazed Lips. The Creamy Lips has a soft and velvety texture and is most similar to the classic lipstick. Milky Lips gives a more fluid and translucent appearance. Glazed Lips has a wet, yet long-lasting color that combines transparency and intensity without being sticky.
Although the idea of a universal shape and form for all of her makeup is interesting, what is even more so is Ellis Faas’ choice of universal colors for her makeup. She based the entire collection of her brand on colors that by nature exist in every human body. From all tones of foundation to every lipstick and eyeshadow, the shades are inspired by colors that naturally occur in our bodies.
I enjoy the brush applicator it comes with because it makes for convenient traveling. This might pose as a problem for some people, however, because a brush applicator does mean that you will have to clean it. Although it has not happened to me, I have read that some people have problems with the pen clogging when they do not regularly clean it.
I really like the texture and design of these lip products, but at $35 a piece, I don’t think I can appreciate them completely without the holder to store the pens. I think I will soon order a holder as well as a few face products to complete my set. I am amazed by the originality and vision of the Ellis Faas brand. The quality of the makeup itself is very good, but mostly, I applaud the innovation and the daring design.
Buying into the concept of the Ellis Holder and universally-shaped makeup requires that consumers use exclusively Ellis Faas products. For makeup junkies like myself, I cannot see myself carrying only the Ellis Holder and its counterparts in my purse. The fact of the matter is that there are too many beauty products that I like to have, to carry, to hold and to try. I am willing to buy Ellis Faas makeup for its good quality and design, but I do not see myself carrying just the bullet case around. If anything, I will buy an Ellis Holder to hold my Ellis Faas makeup on my vanity. The Ellis Holder can be lodged around on some days, but the day that makeup is revolutionized to universal packaging is far. Ellis Faas makeup gets an A for quality, design and concept, but the practicality it tries to instill is far from practical.
Each lip product or holder costs $35 and can be purchased at ellisfaas.com or various department stores worldwide. In the States, Ellis Faas are widely sold in Space NK.
