Will You Be My Valentine? ELLIS FAAS Milky Lips L201 L203 L205

When innovation and design clash with formula, it takes a lot of courage. For most companies it may seem like a threat and being afraid of loosing marketing dollars. So they stick with a very unoriginal and PLAIN-JANE design. Ellis Faas on the other hand never stops to amaze us. I am going to bet my chips towards Ellis Faas’ Milky Lips as they are like a dynamite outside the box.

Milky Lips can be found online at www.ellisfaas.com for $35.00 or €25.00. Each Milky Lips come in 9 shades at 2.8 ml each.

You probably notice that there is a difference on the box. L201 being Ellis Faas signature color, also known as “ELLIS RED,” is housed in the red box. Whereas everything else is in the orange box.

As most Ellis Faas products, they come in an easy to use sleek bullet design with hidden brushes only revealed after pulling the cap off. These are lightweight and when you use them you have more control as they feel like a drawing pen in hand.

Milky Lips has the perfect balance between pigmentation and translucency. The formula is designed in a way that the lips look more fluid regardless if you apply a little or a lot. The color is also very smooth and applies evenly throughout. There are emollient oils that make your lips look fuller with 3D effects.

L201 is known as ELLIS RED, which Ellis Faas has coined, “Blood-Red.” She thinks that this color is the most human of all colors and should be the most versatile one. L203 and L205 are nothing like L201. Rather they are different kind of color from the red family.

Before you turn the knob, shake the pen around a little bit and around 5 to 10 clicks, you should see color on the brushes. That is when it is ready to use. But make sure not to over turn as too much Milky Lips dispensed is a waste of product.

Ellis Faas Milky Lips products are quite lightweight and long lasting. Each product contains Vitamin E and is paraben-free. Do note that these don’t feel sticky on the lips!

So I decided to show you how true the color is compared on a white tissue paper and skin. You can notice that L201 is indeed “Blood-Red,” whereas L203 is a Red with a mix of earthiness color of mauve and brown. Finally L205 is more of a peachy red color almost a bit on the orange side.

You can check out the arm swatch now. As you can see the colors are very bright and vivid. Do you notice how creamy these are? It was no joke, they feel so creamy almost like hydration with moisturization combined all into one. Pigmentation wise, L201 and L203 are almost full coverage while L205 is slightly sheer but layer-able. As I was applying them on the lips, I noticed that when doing a light layer of color, the brush works the best. When I want to achieve a bolder look, fingertips can help smoothing out the brush marks.

With flash, you can notice how they react with lighting. Very pretty and glossy!

Ellis Faas’ products never fail to deliver on design and formula, actually they deliver on everything! The smoothness of each Milky Lips along with the ease of applying makes it one of the best lip products for all occasions. Not to mention the wide color selections. I like the intense color of L203 and the wearability of L205, but for Valentine’s Day I’d definitely pick L201. The sexy bloody red color is hard to resist. Which color will be your Valentine?

    I wish Ellis Faas products were more accessible in stores than going online all the time. I heard only Meat Packing Sephora has it.

      Check out those SpaceNK counters, they have them.

    Never tried this brand but very excited to see how they work since it’s more or so like a mechanical pencil mechanism as oppose to the traditional styles.

    • admin February 9, 2012 at 3:41 AM

      It is very easy to use and carry as well. It doesn’t make a mess and the formula is great!

    These lipsticks look so creamy. They don’t have any shimmers?

    • admin February 9, 2012 at 3:41 AM

      Nope these don’t have shimmers.

  7. Rola February 8, 2012 at 10:20 PM

    L201 and 203 for me. They will make a bold statement!

    • admin February 9, 2012 at 3:41 AM

      L201 definitely!
