ELLIS FAAS: Red Velvet Holder



News about ELLIS FAAS’ Limited Edition Red Velvet Holder has been circulating for the past month now. Officially, it is due to make its international debut this Saturday, 27 November, but it is actually already available for pre-order through the ELLIS FAAS online shop.

This velvet-flocked Holder is modeled after the original light-weight aluminium Ellis Holder. The long and the short of it is that Ellis took inspiration from the wallpaper of her father’s warm, cosy library when she was young, and modernised the design.

The limited edition Red Velvet Holder retails for the same price as that of the original version: €25 / £21 / USD35.

Basically, the holder has space for six ELLIS FAAS pens (eye and lip products), one ELLIS FAAS foundation pen and a pressed powder compact. I would love to show you some close-up images of the holder but, unfortunately, I haven’t got one myself.

So, who better to show you the workings of the original holder than Ellis Faas herself! Watch her video here to see how she loads the bullets pens into the chambers of the revolver's cylinder holder.

If you haven’t already, check out the other how-to videos by Ellis on the ELLIS FAAS website.

That is clever and cute ^_^ looks like a lipstick.

The price is really good, I thought it would be much more expensive.
I still love the idea and think it would make a great present for Christmas :)

Nikki said...

This looks absolutely gorgeous!! I have never tried any of these products, but I feel like I really have to have this now! x

@London's-beauty
Well, if you watch the video, you would see how the pens are raised one-by-one as you turn the base of the holder. Now, that's cool! :)

@Mademoiselle C.
The price is just for the holder, ie. without the pens, but yes, it would certainly make a classy Christmas present. :)

@Nikki
Hi, Nikki! Haha, thinking of buying the holder before the pens? :D Seriously, if you're new to ELLIS FAAS, I'd recommend trying out its eyeshadows (longlasting!) and/or one of its lip products first. :)

I just bought Ellis red cream lipstick, so excited for it to arrive!

I love this new holder but unfortunately, I don't own any Ellis Faas product... thoug I really like her lipsticks and eye shadows. xx

The holder looks very elegant. I don't know which one I like more though, they both look stylish. Very cool brand.

A Creamy Lips on the way? How lovely! Actually, Creamy Lips (L106 to be exact) was the first ELLIS FAAS product I ever tried. There was no turning back after that! :D

@Naoko
Oh, Naoko. You keep telling me that you want to try ELLIS FAAS! Here, I've checked for you. In Madrid, it's available at Le secret du Marais (Calle Hortaleza). Better get the pens first before getting the holder. ;D

@Karen
Hi Karen! Thank you so much for your kind words! Fyi, there are more ELLIS FAAS articles to come. :)

@Fe
Hmmm, I can't decide either, Fe. The original version is simple and sleek. Red Velvet is jazzed up and so chic. Each has its own charm. :)

@Mademoiselle C.
Yeah, but psst, I do wish too that it was the holder plus all those pens for that price. ;D

@Dina
I totally agree! :)

Sarah B. said...

Their shades are just so amazing! I'm already planning to get 106 and the 101 glazed lips on December <3

@Sarah B.
Ooh, somebody's gonna have extra gorgeous glossy lips this Christmas! :D

Naoko said...

Thank you for the information! you are so nice!! I have to go there to try the colours. I totally agree with you. It's much better to get the pens first! :-)

@Naoko
You're welcome, my dear. Do go check it out when you have the time. :)

I like your explanation of the revolver's cilinder...nice touch.

Thanks for sharing, Nicole

Witoxicity said...

@Nicole
My pleasure, Nicole! Haha, yes, the revolver! I read that the bullet was the inspiration for the design of the ELLIS FAAS pens, hence the analogy. :D

Natalie Nguyen said...

Wow, that is such a divine looking container. It reminds me of Jurassic Park, you know when the guy takes the DNA samples and puts it in the concealed can of shaving cream I think it was? LOL random haha!

@Natalie
Jurassic Park! Oh, you're so cute, Natalie! :D But, OK, I know what you mean.
