In light of the Christmas season, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite reds: Ellis Faas Milky Lips 201. It’s a makeup line where all the products are bullet shaped, brush tip or sponge applicator as seen below:

I see a display with NARS lipsticks as soon as I enter the store
So I take a peek at the counter and saw these most GORGEOUS shades.
On the left side from top to bottom:
Terre de Feu
On the right hand side (top to bottom)
So the MA there showed me the colors and it was instant love. I’ve always been a NARS girl when it comes to matte red lipsticks. I purchased Terre de Feu and Tonkin. Swatches are below:
Top to bottom:
Terre de Feu
Albatross lipgloss (Sephora exclusive).
I’m NC25/30 for reference
They are VERY matte, so if you do have dry lips, wear a sheer layer of balm underneath so it’s not drying. I tried these without balm, and they are a bit dry, but I’ve worn drier lipsticks, so it’s not that bad. There is no smell with either shade, which is a definite plus. I don’t mind a smell, but I’m sure there are people out there who do. I didn’t get to swatch the other shades, but these two were my favorite out of the bunch. I want to get Vesuvio, but at a later date. 🙂
As for Albatross lipgloss, Shawn Snell who was at Sephora today at an event suggested it to me. He applied it over Terre de Feu and WOW. Talk about SERIOUS dimension. I couldn’t help but stare at how my lips looked. Definitely a must have lipgloss if you want to add dimension, or to sheer out a lip color. These lipsticks will be released in other stores on October 1st. 🙂
OH and I got a “Paper Tiger” mini cream eyeshadow as my GWP today:
From L to R: Terre de Feu, Tonkin, Albatross lipgloss.
