My Ellis Faas arrived from Bergdorf's today, having taken 5 days to go 40 blocks and in a box big enough to hold a pair of boots! No matter, they're mine now! One of the two items I purchased was Milky Lips Lipstick in L207, which turned out to be $35 and not the $36 I was quoted. It's a warm deep nude with a good amount of brown and peach in it. In my opinion, the Ellis Faas colors definitely run warm. It's not the most flattering shade I've ever worn (I'd have preferred if it had a tad more pink) but the texture is very, very nice. It's fluid like a stain but a bit thicker. I suppose it's somewhere between a gloss and a stain and the lasting power is very good, especially given how moisturizing this feels. I would call the finish velvety. I do not think that the product will completely blow your mind of revolutionize the way you think about lip products, but because of how novel the texture is it is worth owning one Ellis Faas Milky Lips for sure.
Primed and ready to go:
