I bought this some time back, and can't believe I hadn't reviewed it yet, because it is VERY special. <br>
Yes, Ellis Red is expensive for a lipstick ( I think I paid a total of about $35, including shipping), the click-pen applicator is a royal pain, and the color isn't long-lasting, but for a color like this, I'm willing to put up with just about …

It was a bit scary to find out that the color is based on the actual red from blood. I gave it a try anyways and thought I need to learn how to wear red esp over the holidays. It is nice, but not something I cannot live without. The applicator is a bit hard to use the 1st time. Lots of product came out all at once and it wasted quite a bit considering the price point.

of course 201 is a beautiful product color. the formula isnt drying.
Major downfall (besides the crappy applicator that wastes a ton of product the first time you use it), is that this has absolutely no staying power on me. It rubs of on everything it touches. food, drink. shirt. other lip.

YSL has a better product that is just as glossy, the red looks fab on me (NC42) and it …

I hate to be the one to bring down the 100% positive rating on this, but I was so disappointed in it after all the rave reviews I've read on blogs and MUA that I felt compelled to share my story!

Pros:
* The color really was pretty - gave me a sort of "Snow White" look (I am very pale).
* The formula wasn't even in my top 10 gloss formulas, but it did …

Cue another infatuated review of the L201 lipstick by Ellis Faas, I bought the milky lips formula. Incredibly pigmented, incredibly red and dramatic. It is also an incredibly versatile color depending on how much one applies. It is not too bright of a color on me, for reference, I'm currently using the number 6 warm natural powder from Bobbi Brown. Makes me wonder why I've been staying …Read more

[For reference – I am of mixed Filipino/English descent, with light olive skin-tone that leans towards warm/yellow. Skin-type is Combination/Sensitive, with redness on my nose & cheeks. Pronounced pores. NC20-25]

Like some other reviewers, I bought this sight-unseen based solely on the rave reviews and colour swatches on the Ellis Faas website. I had previously been swaying between …

this is among one of the most beautiful red that I have ever seen!! The pigmentation is so strong that it literally looks like a drop of blood on my lip with just one dip...and I found that EF lip products are of high quality, as they do not dry up my lips. The L201 would be flattering on only skin colour. The official website gave a full range of looks on different skin colours including white …Read more

This review is for Ellis Faas lipstick in L202 which is a rich sultry red. It is not as bright as L201, L202 definetly has more brown in it, but for my skin tone it is perfect. My only qualm about Ellis Faas is that if you overtwist the pen, you get too much product and it ends up going to waste. I will try to be more careful next time, but for the times I get too much product- I proceed to use …Read more

This is the Milky Lips formula. It's a beautiful red, one of the best I've ever used. I have pale, cool-toned skin, and it brightens my skin and eyes yet doesn't look unnatural-- a pretty good trick, if you ask me. It's also very versatile-- I can pat a little on with my finger for a stained, MLBB color, or use the brush to get a precise, full-on red, or anything in between …Read more
