The newest Ellis Faas Spring Set brings to mind images of a 1960s flower child with it’s tones of caramel, lilac, and taupe.
Although it’s a Spring release, I find that the set of products are really versatile and easy to incorporate into an Autumn look (being in Australia, all the seasons are sadly back to front).My favourite product in the set is the Milky Lips L207, which is the perfect caramel nude on my lips, and goes perfectly with EVERYTHING.
The Light E304 is a vivid lilac with a metallic finish. It takes about 2 layers to achieve opacity, but layers and blends really effortlessly (I use my fingers) like all the other Ellis Faas cream eye products I’ve used.
Light E304 doesn’t crease on my lids, but it does tend to flake off after the 3hr mark and by the end of the day the metallic finish has half disappeared. This can be bit of a problem, but I guess you can get around that by reapplying the product during the day. Anyone have any ideas on how to reduce the flaking?
Keep reading after the jump!
The Creamy Eyes E106 is a matte ‘greige’ taupe with medium pigmentation. It is a very versatile product, and performs well on the lid with no creasing or fading even after a long day (makes it through an hour of cardio at the gym unscathed!). I like to apply it on the lid with the brush and then blend it with my fingers.
It reminds me a lot of MAC Quite Natural Paint Pot except 1) depending on the lighting and how sheer you wear the product it can have a just perceptible lavender undertone or peach undertone and 2) it blends SO MUCH EASIER (the MAC Paint Pot tends to drag on the lid a little whereas the Creamy Eyes applies silkily and blends like a dream).
I’m such a huge fan of the Milky Lips L207, I could gush all day about it. It is a very pigmented creamy neutral nude with a little bit of peach undertone- very Bridget Bardot. Colour wise, it is quite similar to Melange OCC Lip Tar and the (sadly discontinued) Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Evocation.
The Milky lips have a lightweight and beautifully silky texture and are quite moisturising. L206 has a pretty impressive wear time (several hours) for such a light lip product, especially considering that it is not at all sticky. There is nothing I don’t love about this product.
