Absolutely Unique Makeup by Ellis Faas: Would You Give it A Try?

Lately everyone is talking about Ellis Faas so I wanted to check out this brand myself. And… I was really amazed by what I’ve found out. This is something that I’ve never seen before, it looks so futuristic and yet so easy to use. So what is so special about this brand and what makes it so unique? The fact that every products comes in a liquid form and is in a chic silver tube which goes into a silver holder. Sounds unbelievable, right?  So here is the photo so you can all see what I am talking about.

Who is Ellis Faas you may ask. And I’ve got the answer for your question!

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. This will launch early 2009. You can read more here

    If I had any interest in the Ellis Faas line, the video put it to rest. The packaging is heavy, cumbersome, and gimmicky. That you can’t discern one product from the other without looking at the end is also a negative for anyone who just wants to pick up a few products without the hassle of the large canister. Lots of make-up lines use gimmicks and trends, but the Ellis Faas line is over the top. I’ll just say, “No, thanks.”

    Hi Eileen
    I don’t like that it is so heavy, too. But I want to try it because of textures. If I could get only 1 product I would love to try blush.

    There is a lot of good buzz about the line so hopefully Faas will tackle the issue of poor packaging 🙁

      I’m having problems with the packaging also – actual product is absolutely fab!!….when you can get any out of the pens!
      No consistent delivery of the product sometime several clicks- no product – sometime one click and way too much product which cannot be left to clog the brush hence lots of wastage and then the pens just stopping completely and not any product at all regardless of clicks or twists on concealer..
