Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes in E117 Mint Green and E119 Yellow Ochre Review and Swatches

I have to say that I am absolutely in love with the Light Blue (E118) and Yellow Ochre (E119) Creamy Eyes by Ellis Faas which are a part of the new addition, among some other shades.

The texture is  a dream to work with, light but pigmented, it is very blendable and buildable. But you have to work quickly as it sets pretty fast. I have been  wearing these two shades non-stop ever since I’ve got them. The best thing is the staying power. On me they last for the whole day without a primer!

E199 actually looks similar to Illamasqua’s Vernau and they look fantastic together. As for E117, it is such a gorgeous shade, it is fresh and light but not overly pastel, if you can say so, so doesn’t wash me out, especially with an eye liner and several coats of mascara.

As for the packaging, on one hand, it

5 Weekdays – 5 Lipsticks

My personal lipstick  drawer is getting out of control. But I keep using the same products over, and over again. So last week I’ve decided to plan my “weekday lipstick wardrobe” in advance. Here are the five products I’ve chosen:

5 Weekdays - 5 Lipsticks BECCA, Hourglass, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Clarins, Elis Faas

BECCA Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Eloise (review and lip swatches)

This is the lightest shade of all and the only matte formula from the selection. Eloise is a beautiful baby pink that suits any look, just make sure that your lips are in a great condition, as otherwise it may enhance the dry patches.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick Succulence of Dew in Murmurings (review and swatches)

I have been loving this lipstick recently,  it feels extremely comfortable on the lips, hydrating and moisturizing. Plus it gives

Holiday Red Lips and Nails with Ellis Faas and Revlon

Those of you who follow me on twitter probably already saw this photo of me wearing Ellis Faas  Creamy Lips in L101 Ellis Red which is just amazing! According to the brand it should look nice on every skin tone. They also have the famous Ellis Red in other formulas: Milky Lips L201 and Glazed Lips L301 so you can choose a formula, too.

As for the nail polish I am wearing Revlon’s Valentine and although I absolutely love the colour I am not happy with the application and the brush. But I will write about both products in more details later, so stay tuned!

I plan to show you some other red and plum lip products over the next few weeks.  And I would really love to hear what lip shades are you loving now? By the way, have you seen my tips onhow to wear a red lipstick?

Most Requested Makeup Product. Can You Guess?

End of September – end of November are very busy months for me in terms of Birthdays of very special people!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I like to find out what the person wants to get. Sometimes I’d find out with the help of other people but sometimes I would just ask.

I’ve noticed that very often my girlfriends ask for a mascara makeup-wise.  In fact, I had two mascaras requests last week.

I though that may be useful information as the holidays are approaching. And since almost every woman wears mascara, you can’t really go wrong.

Here is just a photo of some random mascaras that I’ve found in my personal makeup stash.

Ellis Faas mascara, Hourglass Film Noir mascara, DiorShow Ultimate mascara, Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet mascara, Benefit BADGal mascara, Smashbox Bionic mascara, Lancome Hypnose mascara, Daniel Sandler Baby Jet mascara, BECCA The Ultimate mascara.

If you want a budget friendly variant, I’d recommend Max Factor 2000 Calories or Max Factor False Lash Effect, both are amazing!
