Ellis herself was present at the event and passionately shared her vision, explaining that Faas colours are based on the colours that exist naturally in our bodies and designed to universally flatter all skintones.
Ellis FaasThe collection consists of 27 lip products, 14 eye shadows, 8 foundations, 8 concealers, 4 blushers, 3 powders 2 mascaras, 2 eyeliners and 1 cleverly designed makeup holder.
The sleek, cool metal casing is extravagant and will definitely have those around you flocking to see what you've just pulled out of your makeup bag.
Eye colours come in two options - Creamy Eyes and Milky Eyes. The liquid to powder formula of the Creamy Eyes is super easy to apply, blends well and dries quickly to create a soft, velvety finish which can be layered to create a more dramatic effect. Milky Eyes has a slightly more translucent texture and can be used in conjunction with Creamy Eyes to add a silky sheen of colour.
The lip shades come in three textures and 27 colours. From stained and subtle to vivid and glossy, Ellis Faas has it all covered. If you prefer more of a stained finish go for Creamy Lips or for a full on wet-look shine opt for Glazed Lips. Either way, you won't be disappointed.
The range launches exclusively in Liberty next month and prices are as follows (correct as of Dec 2009):
Not cheap, but comparable to other lines readily available in department stores. I had a good play with all the products and liked some of the lip and eye shades. I may treat myself to a couple of lip shades if feeling particularly frivolous!
