I had a huge exam this morning, so I mini-celebrated afterwards by mini-hauling (will post the goods up later). Anyways, I thought I would continue with the Ellis Faas reviews before I dive back into studying for finals. Check out Part 1 of the Ellis Faas reviews here.
Like Creamy Lips, the Blush has a similar showerhead applicator.
This is in S301, a pinkish salmon color.

The texture of this is more creamy/less liquid compared to Creamy Lips. It’s also very light and easy to blend. I personally don’t wear blush *I will give you 5 seconds to gasp and point your fingers at me* because I have rosy cheeks 24/7, but I layered a tiny dab of this over my ‘natural blush’ to test it out. Since the color was fairly subtle, it just gave me a little more glow, which was exactly what I needed that day. Staying power was very good, it lasted until I removed it. I doubt I’ll be using this during the summer, as my cheeks get even rosier, but on cold winter days when I’m running low on sleep, this will make a great pick-me-up. Ellis Faas blush retails for $32. Yes, once again, this is definitely not a bargain buy. Just because of my preferences, I would rather spend that money on the lip products, but this does make quite a nice blush.
My rating: B+
Next up is Creamy Eyes. This was the most interesting product out of the three. It’s a liquid/cream shadow in pen form, which I don’t believe I’ve ever seen anywhere else. Unlike the blush and lip applicators, Creamy Eyes comes with a brush. It’s fluffy and soft, with enough stiffness to line the eyes or do a wash of shadow.
This is E103, a.k.a. black. It’s a nice “true black,” very deep color without any shimmer or undertones. The texture is halfway between a liquid liner and a cream shadow, which makes it easier for me to apply.
I used the applicator brush to draw on some thick liner. I usually do superthin lines for my upper lashline, but there was a lot of product left on the brush so:
My one complaint with this is that there is always some product left over when I am done. I think the showerheads release the perfect amount of product, but I get a little too much with this. That could also have to do with this color though, since I usually use it as a liner or as a sheered out base for a smokey eye, but never as a full intense wash of color. Staying power is excellent. I love using gel liners, but my biggest problem with them is that they always end up leaving a little imprint on my lids at the end of the day (everything smudges on me, even with primer underneath). I did my usual thin liner (using a separate brush) and Creamy Eyes, and at the end of the day there was still a hint of an imprint, but it was much smaller than the usual ones (plus I had no primer on that day). This also dries fairly quickly, taking about a minute. After blending, let it set and you’re good to go! Creamy Eyes retails for 26 British Pounds (approximately $36).
My rating: A
That wraps it up for Ellis Faas. I loved all the products from this line, although I wish the prices were a little lower. Let me know what you think, especially if you have a store near you!
