Christmas Gift Guide: Ellis Faas Lights

Lights  is a relatively new product and its the latest edition of Ellis Faas makeup products for the eyes. In my opinion these are the best eye shadows for the holiday.

The package is gorgeous and unique and the colours are to die for, see for yourself!

This is what is written about the product:

“Like practically all ELLIS FAAS products, these are liquid, but they dry upon application, and then the Lights give the illusion of having a small metallic sheet on the eyelid. Because the particles in the product are so fine, it will appear from a distance that the shiny texture is oily or wet – even though it is perfectly dry with a smooth finish, so you won’t feel any stickiness on the eyelids, and they will not build up in eyelid creases. They are available in five shades: warm silver, greenish gold, bronze, lilac and holographic Bordeaux.”

The price is €32/£25/$42

Unfortunately I’ve never tried the Lights myself but I would really love to. You can read the review of Ellis Faas range including Lights at London MakeUp Girl. She also has some links to other brilliant reviews of the brand.

And how amazing those shades are, don’t you agree? Which one would you choose?

Simple Face Of The Day: Pink and Purple

Today I wanted to keep it very simple in terms of makeup, it’s almost like the recent tag –  5 product makeup face.

I have used a very light base – BECCA’s Luminous Skin Colour which looks very natural on, as if you are not wearing anything, so it won’t cover any major imperfections. But it does even out the skin tone and  makes it [the skin] show through.

Then I added Daniel Sandler’s Watercolour Blush in Flush, which is one my my favourites, beautiful perky pink with light, non-greasy texture and long-lasting formula.  It’s perfect !

Ellis Faas Mascara Review

I wanted to write a review about Ellis Faas’ Mascara for a long time already, so here is is finally.

It comes in a signature “bullet” design which all my designer friends rated very highly.  I love the brand’s products a lot and always expect exceptional quality. And this mascara does deliver, in my opinion.

Here is, by the way, the image to support the mascara created by Ellis.  Those are clearly false eye lashes and, unlike a lot of other brands, EF doesn’t claim that you will get a ridiculously long and thick lashes, that is just a creative and fun image.

But back to the mascara. I would say that it is a lengthening mascara and actually, I have just checked, it is described as a lengthening one. Not that is doesn’t give any volume but it is great at giving length and separation.  And it is probably my favourite thing!

This mascara is not clumpy at all, even if I apply several coats, the lashes are defined but they don’t stick to each other, so I son;t need to comb through.

The other thing that I love is that Mascara is pretty long-lasting, it doesn’t smudge or

Lipstick Tag!

I remember back in the days, tags were huge but I rarely see any these days. I recently came across the one called “Lipstick Tag”, and decided to participate in it.

A lot. Let’s put it that way.

Probably this red by Lancome.

4.  What is your favourite brand for lipsticks?
I really love how Ellis Faas lipsticks feel on. Also I am a fan of

Face Of The Day. September 2013

Today I’ve decided to keep my makeup minimal, as I will spend most of my time (and money, le segh) choosing the items for my home makeover.

So here is the makeup that I’ve used:
Face Of The Day Rouge Bunny Rouge Benefit No7 Ellis Faas AnastsiaAnd there are quite a few Rouge Bunny Rouge products as I am currently working on one feature for them, I will let you know when it’s done, for sure.

Face

I’ve started with the brand’s Aqua Primer, it has a lovely light texture that smooths the face and doesn’t clog the pores. Then I have applied Benefit’s Erase Paste under the eyes which is brilliant for counteracting the blue tones. I have finished off with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Flawless face Powder Precious Velvet in Piano Forte. It has a medium coverage and feels light on the skin. I don’t usually use powders but am experimenting with some at the moment.

To give myself some glow, I have dabbed Benefit’s High Beam  on the cheek bones, under the brow bone, above the upper lip and on the bridge of the nose.  From
