My love of Ellis Faas lip products is pretty well documented.
I love the chic, shiny, somewhat space age bullet pens they come in. I adore the creamy, hydrating formulas, and most of all, I am just obsessed with the colours.
The brand is really great at bringing out shades which would normally have me cowering behind my compact, but with their range of Hot Lips, Ellis Faas have really come out as a winner. The line is filled with highly pigmented colours which are just gorgeous – think sultry reds, hot pinks and tropical oranges.
Since I’m more than a little boring in my makeup choices I plumped for, what I team, to be the most wearable, everyday shade – L408 Baby Pink. It’s a beautiful, bright corally-pink shade which is perfect for perking up my regular makeup in all the dull weather.
A couple of clicks is all I need to saturate the sponge applicator with product, and a quick swipe then I’m good to go! The formula is rich and creamy – thanks to Candelilla Wax and Vitamin E it never fully dries, instead you just get to enjoy lips which feel healthy and moisturised, and even when the formula wears a little, my lips are still stained all night – perfect for the upcoming mistletoe!
Hot Lips are priced at £22 and are available from Net-a-Porter
