Ringing in Autumn with Ellis Faas’ Red Set [In Our Makeup Bag]


What It Is:

Ellis Faas ‘Ellis Red’ Set* featuring Creamy Lips L101, Milky Lips L201 and Glazed Lips L301, all in the shade Ellis Red

Why This Should Be in Your Bag:

Ellis Faas is a cool concept brand that houses the majority of their products in sleek, silver bullets. I’ve been a fan of their lip products and was excited to try out the new Ellis Red Set that features three finishes of lip product all in the same, signature shade.

How To Use It:

The Milky Lips and Glazed Lips come with a brush on applicator, while the Creamy Lips has a little foam head. I found application using both to be very easy, however, I did have to touch-up with q-tip after.

CC Rating: A

I absolutely adore the Ellis Red Set from Ellis Faas! Her lip products are gorgeous and the idea of having 3 finishes in the same shade in one set is genius. As you can see from the swatches, L101 is a true red, while L201 leans slightly bordeaux and L301 has more orange to it. All 3 look wonderful on my pale skin.

Wear time for L101 and L201 is better than L301, but I expected that as L301 is much more sheer and glossy. L101 and L201 are both slightly staining, making them ideal for a long day on campus or night on the town! The 3 shades are also totally internship-appropriate; instead of bright, stop sign red, the shades are sophisticated and mature.

The amazing Ellis Red Set is available on Ellis Faas website for $75! Each lip product sells for $35 each, so this is a great bargain (and a bit of a luxurious treat!).

    I love my little hometown and all that goes with living in the Great White North - snow, skiing, hot chocolate, bulky knit sweaters. I'm passionate about a lot of things, but you'll most often find me writing about books, makeup and fashion. As I like to put it, I've got beauty AND brains.
