Ellis Faas Milky Lips L209 Toffee Beige Review

 Vogue Paris cited Ellis Faas as "one of the most influential make-up artists of her time". 
She has worked with the world's most pre-eminent fashion designers, photographers, stylists, hairdressers and models
 and her work has been published on the covers of the world’s best-known fashion magazines. 

 In 2009, Ellis launched her unique colour collection. 
The entire collection is in liquid form, encased in pens with brush or felt-tip applicators. 
They blend into skin immediately, becoming one with your face. 
Ellis based the whole collection of her brand on the colours that by nature exist in every human body. From all tones of foundation to every lipstick and eyeshadow, the shades
 are inspired by the human body’s owns colours.
 It is my pleasure to be reviewing the second product from her lipstick range.
Today i will be reviewing Milky Lips L209 Toffee Beige


It comes in a very unique bullet shaped package.
The pointed end is the lid while the base has a twist that you have to turn until you see the products coming out and then you wait a minute for the product to get absorbed on the Brush tip.
It also comes with an instruction leaflet on how to clean and take care of the applicator.

The Base also has the shade name and color on it.

The Milky lips has a brush applicator unlike the Creamy lips that has sponge applicator
