ELLIS FAAS: Spring Set 2012 - A Closer Look



As mentioned the other day, ELLIS FAAS has come up with the Spring Set for 2012. The set consists of:



Milky Lips L207 - nudish, a cross between dusty rose and coral brown
Light E304 - metallic lilac
Creamy Eyes E106 - matte light brown/lilac, taupe


L-R: Milky Lips L207, Light E304, Creamy Eyes E106


Lips
For more details/photos, please refer to my feature on the Milky Lips L207.


Eyes
The two eye products make a great combo, in my opinion. The taupe of E106 is subdued, neutral but certainly not uninteresting. Light E304 is a gorgeous eyecatcher but if you think it's too much, then apply just a thin layer or only on a small section of the eyelid.

I like combining this pair with the very handy matte dark brown of Creamy Eyes E104. Looking through my archive of ELLIS FAAS Eye Looks, I see that I have done this trio combination twice before.

I decided to give this whole combination another go and the following is what I have come up with.


ELLIS FAAS: Eye Look With Light XVII


The items used for this look were:


Light E304
Creamy Eyes E106
Creamy Eyes E104
Mascara E401 (black)
GOSH Velvet Touch Eye Liner in Black Ink (not shown)
Note: All the featured ELLIS FAAS pens except for the E104 were kindly provided by the brand.


Light E304, Creamy Eyes E106, Creamy Eyes E104 - all heavily swatched


This look is less smokey than the two other eye looks with this same colour scheme.

Upper lid
1. Applied with finger the taupe of E106 on (almost) the whole lid, using another (clean) finger to fade out the edges.
2. Lightly dabbed on the metallic Light E304 right across the moving lid.
3. With an eyeliner brush, lined the upper lash line with the brown of E104.
4. Tightlined with the black eyeliner pencil.


Lower lid
5. Applied directly with the brush applicator the taupe on the outer two-thirds of the lower lash line.

6. Curled lashes and applied two coats of mascara.


The Spring Set 2012 retails for €65 / £55 / USD85. That's a savings of €18 / £16 / USD28 compared to the total price of the individual pens.

Alternatively, if you're interested in just the Milky Lips and perhaps other ELLIS FAAS products/colours, the brand recently announced another temporary offer in its latest newsletter - a 10% discount on your whole order (which includes any Milky Lips). Coupon code: SNOWL200

Hello! I found your blog while stumbling upon ideas for where to beauty shop while in the Netherlands! I loved your series, but was wondering if you could mention any specific items that are unique to NL or Europe! I would love to try some of your favourites :)

Thanks from Canada!

I bet your credit card just got up and walked out from its hiding place. ;) Seriously, if you think the purple's divine, then I don't think you would regret getting it. :)

@KTee
Hey, thank you so much, my dear! I'm always happy to hear that. :D

@Lavender
Thanks, Lavender! :)

@Claire
Hello, Claire! How nice to hear from you! Hmm, this could be long and it also depends on what you like. I think it would be better that you dropped me an email (address found in the Contact page above) and we can take it from there. Hear from you soon! :)

@Nicole
Oh, yes, the purple is simply beautiful. Many thanks, Nicole! :)

@Cynthia
Hey, Cynthia! I hope you've been well. Yes, I totally agree with you about that purple! :D
