The Perfect Mascara with ELLIS FAAS

ELLISFASSYesterday morning I applied a new mascara and I was so disappointed, flakes came flying about and  I couldn’t get it to layer properly.  I had to layer on another tried&true brand over it to achieve the effect I wanted without having to remove it.

I was basically running late and was meeting my friend Thijs for the first time that afternoon and I was hoping he didn’t notice my lashes, Thijs is in the makeup industry and notices everything.  Thankfully he either didn’t notice or  was too polite to mention it.

ELLISFAASPOSTCARDSThis morning I applied my New ELLIS FAAS Mascara and my lashes look effortless, glamorous and natural all the same time if you can believe it.

The reason why this is, is because all ELLIS FAAS cosmetics are formulated with the intention of being universal.  All of the pigments are rich in colour and compliment all skin tones, from all nationalities.  Each hue works with each natural shade in the human body, from a freckle to the colour of our blood.

With ELLIS FAAS you can create the looks of your dreams.

ELLIS FAAS – Exclusive for Net-A-Porter

ELLIS FAASI love early birthday presents, thank you! I eagerly opened up the box like a little girl and was so excited over the amazing colours. Especially the Hot Lips L401, I immediately applied the color over my Dragon Girl and am in love!

cb01e4d9-ac8a-4e44-9d98-221065542c04It’s like an orange-red that can be deepened for a darker-red. I may not be describing it right and trust me, my picture is not doing it justice.

All three shades are perfect for summer and after summer. I thought about applying the color to my hand to show you, but even then it wouldn’t do it justice.


*The set contains:
  • Milky Lips L207, Nude Pink: high-pigment lipstick with an incredibly lightweight feel
  • Glazed Lips L304, Sheer Orange: super high-shine gloss
  • Hot Lips L401, Bright Red: pigment-rich formula with a non-greasy finish
  • long-wearing, paraben-free, packed with pigment, moisturising Candalila Wax and Vitamin E, and of course no animal testing, because these products are “Only Tested On Supermodels”.
I have never been so in-love over a new shade of red like I am right now. The pigment is comfortable, non-drying and just gorgeous for this Leo girl.
You can purchase the colours individually or keep an eye out at Net-A-Porter.



There’s a New Shade of Pink in Town

L403_shop_mainI’ve always been drawn to pink, but tend to stay away from it since my mother dressed me in pink throughout my childhood.  Those of you that read my blog know that I recently found my perfect shade of baby doll pink, mainly a bubble gum pink.

I had another pink from the New Hot Lips collection by ELLIS FAAS and I love it too!

L403 is more of an orchid pink shade, brighter and bright enough to perk up my skin from a poor nights rest.

Here’s to a brighter pout this Winter!
