I must apologise firstly for blogging about this so late, I’m absolutely drowning in blog posts at the moment and am just ploughing though a list, plus as I keep ticking things off I keep adding new ideas to it!
Ellis Faas Holiday 2010Anyway, I wanted to do a little post about Ellis Faas products for this Christmas. The first of which is a festive version of the favulous Ellis Faas holder. It’s just the same as the standard holder, it holds the same products and does the same job, except it’s flocked! In red velvet! It’s very pretty and very wintery. £21.

The set contains Creamy Lips Ellis Red L101, Ellis Eyes Light E305 and black mascara E401 which you can use to create either a pretty dramatic party look or something altogether more subtle.  Before I talk about the looks you can achieve, here’s swatches of the Eyes Light E305 and Creamy Lips Ellis Red L101.
The E305 Eyes Light is a gorgeous bordeaux with green flash and it looks really spectacular and I was especially interested to try the Creamy Lips Ellis Red especially as I have it Glaze formula. The mascara is black and I was interested to give that a try too.Ellis Faas Holiday 2010
For a party look, use the Light as an all over shadow, and under the eye, blending out with your finger, then lashings of the mascara and finally outline the lips with the red, then fill in.
For a more subtle look, just apply a dot of the Light in the middle of youe eyelid and dab lightly, add one coat of the mascara and add a little slick of the lipstick and fade with your fingers to create a stain.
As you can probably tell already I was sent the Holiday Glow kit and went for a look somewhere in between the two. Please note, these pictures are pre-eyebrow threading!

I can confirm that my preference is definitely for the Creamy Lips Ellis Red, I like the Glaze, but the Creamy lips is a little easier to wear and apply for me.

Love colours for the season and I must give a special mention to the mascara which I’ve worn almost exclusively since I received it. Which when you consider I have over 10 mascara’s is no mean feat!
The Winter Glow set is £55.

  2. Lipstick Luvvie says:

    I now feel I definitely need some Ellis Faas in my life! The red lips look stunning. I have considered buying the Winter Glow set many times in the past few weeks but was put off as I don’t really need a mascara. Maybe I should reconsider. Jennifer X
    P.S. Tom Ford is out for dispatch today, so will try to send it on to you this afternoon.

    This red looks so good on you! It makes me even more eager to have a try (my order is totally not arriving, are the Netherlands that far from France?).
