ELLIS FAAS Make Up @ Sccube The Apothecary

I once blogged about Ellis Faas makeup when I chanced upon its website. And this time I got a real chance to play with these bullets make up~ ^,^


About Ellis Faas
Vogue Paris cited Ellis Faas as "one of the most influential make-up artists of her time". And indeed, she has worked with the world's most pre-eminent fashion designers, photographers, stylists, hairdressers and models.
Ellis’ work has been published on the covers of the world’s best-known fashion magazines. 
Additionally, Ellis has worked for make-up brands, such as Clinique, Lancôme and MAC Cosmetics – and she was asked by L'Oréal to create a make-up line for their skin care brand, Biotherm.
After the contract with L’Oréal ended in 2007, the way was paved for her to create her own brand: ELLIS FAAS.

Only Tested On Supermodels
- the finished products, textures and shades cannot be tested on animals
- the ingredients themselves cannot be tested on animals
- the factories we use have to adhere to the European Union's so-called Fixed Cut Off Date scheme. This means that our products do not contain any ingredients that have been tested on animals since the EU banned those tests.

Our suppliers have just re-confirmed that they are meeting our demands, and always will be. In fact, they stopped using animal-tested ingredients long before that became a law. This is why we are happy to tell you again and again:

The Brand Story of ELLIS FAAS
“The line of ELLIS FAAS is based on the colours that the body produces naturally. The important thing is finding thebalance between the tone of your skin and the shades of makeup you choose." (Cate Blanchett quote on InStyle, April 2010)

The ELLIS FAAS Human Colours collection looks to the human palette for inspiration. The colours that exist naturallyin our bodies are complex and rich, but they're also universal, shared by each and every one of us. Based on thisuniversal spectrum, ELLIS FAAS Human Colours complement all skin tones, and when it comes to looking one's best,what better way to highlight a great feature or mask an imperfection than with tones and hues that already exist ineach of us? The ELLIS FAAS Human Colours inspire exploration: no matter what complexion, age or style.

Inspiration of Ellis Faas, their in-house ‘model’ Snow.

Ellis Faas @ Sccube
Ellis Faas is available in Singapore, brought to us by Sccube The Apothecary.
In this post, I'm going to introduce the products and include random swatches of them as well.


Ellis Faas Holder
With the ELLIS FAAS Holder, you are the one in charge: when you buy it, the Holder is empty leaving it up to you to mix and match. You are the one choosing the ELLIS FAAS products that reflect your mood or suit the occasion, and you’re good to go with a customised kit filled with your choice of colours and products. (Refer to my other blog post for more pics of the holder)

Turn the bottom of the holder and it pops the product up.


Ellis Faas Clips
After having created the award-winning ELLIS HOLDER, Ellis Faas has taken a new step in solving makeup portability: the ELLIS CLIPS. The ELLIS CLIPS can connect any amount of our signature pens - from two to as many as you like. The concept is brilliant in its simplicity: just connect the clips to each other and slide in the pens. You can roll them up and take out just the pen you want to use without disconnecting the chain.

I was pretty fascinated with the clips when I first saw it. Initially I thought they were metal but it's actually plastic. I guess it's less heavy and safer too? ^_^


Ellis Faas Skin Veil Foundation SPF15 PA+++
Skin Veil minerals diffuse light across the skin’s surface, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. ELLIS FAAS foundation incorporates moisturising ingredients which nourish and protect the skin.

Skin Veil foundation is available in eight shades from S101 to S108

Skin Veil Foundation Swatches (on fair skin)
Credits to +everbluec chantana's arm for this swatch. lolx~ She is very fair with pink undertone so she will go for S101 shade.

Skin Veil Foundation Swatches (on medium fair skin)
As I have a yellow undertone, I would probably go for S104 (4th from the right). Though I prefer to the shade S103 as it seems lighter, but that would be too pink for me.
Note: Due to the orange lighting & my camera's auto filter, the swatches in my pics may appear different from the actual colour.


Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes
ELLIS FAAS offers an extensive range of product for the eyes. Creamy Eyes for shape and contour, either a full smokey eye or for a more subtle wash of colour.
Picking out a handful of colours from the range. E113, E114, E116, E117, E118, E119, E123, E128
 
Creamy Eyes Swatches

Ellis Faas Creamy, Milky, Glazed Lips
ELLIS LIPS products are lightweight, long-lasting and easy to apply. Paraben-free and loaded with Vitamin E, they also blend into the lips without leaving a sticky residue, leaving the lips soft and conditioned.
The 3 most beautiful red from Ellis Faas' lips range - L103, L201 & L301

Creamy, Milky, Glazed Lips Swatches
I'm liking both the Creamy & Milky lips texture. It's very pigmented & creamy, would be absolutely great for my pigmented lips. ^_^


Ellis Faas Blush & Eyeliner
ELLIS FAAS blush gives cheeks a touch of colour while cooling and toning the skin for an instant fresh look. ELLIS FAAS blush ensures a dewy finish and long-lasting glow.
ELLIS FAAS Eyeliner - A fabulous liquid liner that rapidly turns into a vibrant, unprecedented powdery finish while a high percentage of pigments results into an intense line of pure colour. And it stays until taken off with a cleanser. 
Randomly picking a few blushes - S302, S303 & S304 and the only 2 Eyeliner shades  E501 & E502.
