Ellis Faas Creamy Lips L103 Bright Red

I realize that I've titled this post after the lipstick, but I actually don't have a ton to say about it since I didn't wear it for very long today.  I was really having a hard time decided what color lip I wanted and I ultimately felt that the warm red was somehow too clashy with the other colors on my face (although, I have to say that the pictures turned out better than I expected!).  I switched over to Givenchy Le Rouge in Brun Createur.  However, I can and will tell you that I'm not a huge fan of the odd little sponge tipped applicator.  I don't mind that type of applicator for a gloss or even a sheer color, but with such a pigmented color as this, it proves to be quite tricky and even messy!  The texture of the lipstick is very nice and reminds me of Armani Lip Maestros.  It's light and comfortable and has a slight silicone-y feel to it.  The lipstick has a glossy finish, but I can't be certain if that would have stayed around or not.

Today I used my new MUFE foundation brush and I am really pleased with it!  It's the Large 108 brush.  I've used it with various liquids and powders on clients, but have only used it on myself twice now.  I really love it.  It's fantastic!  I'm very happy to have several brushes from their new line and would highly recommend them.

Thanks for stopping by!
