If you’re a fan of a red lip, this should really be your next purchase.
The Ellis Red set contains three separate lip colors which means you will be more than prepared whenever you’re looking to sport a dramatic look – perfect now we are headed into chillier climes!
First up is the Milky Lips in L201 – Ellis Red, packaged in the signature silver bullet-like pens, the tip is nylon brush which allows for precision application.
The colour is a bright, almost orange-red which is bright and flattering (especially with a tan) and has enough coverage to make you feel like you’re wearing more than just a gloss. The formula is thick and scentless, but super hydrating, and the colour lasts for around 5 hours on me.
Next up is the Creamy Lips in L101 Ellis Red. This is again packaged in the same snazzy silver pens, but rather than the brush tip, there is a foam applicator, which the colour snakes out from with just a twist.
This is definitely the most dramatic offering from the set – the formula is rich, and applies seamlessly. The foam applicator provides a smooth and even colour, and it lasts all day – seriously, this is the longest wearing red lip I have ever come across. It. does. not. budge.
The colour is beautiful – a bright, rich red which is perfect for evenings. The colour doesn’t fade or bleed, and you’re left with movie-star lips all night!
Last, but certainly not least is Glazed Lips in L301 a beautiful red gloss.
This is the sheerest and thinnest formula of the set, and is perfect for a hit of daytime colour, or if you’re just easing yourself into coloured lips.
The brush means application is a breeze, and the gloss applied evenly and stayed shiny for at least three hours. The Glazed Lips is definitely the most orange-red of the set, and even when the glossiness died down I was left with a flattering stain which lasted throughout the day.
