I dislike lip gloss, but the Ellis Faas Glazed Lips ($35) formula feels more like a liquid lipstick that has plenty of shine. Advertised as providing an "ultra-wet, long-lasting burst of color," the finish still lets my own lip pigment shine through. L307 is a warm cantaloupe-watermelon color.
As with the other Ellis Faas brush dispensers (described and shown here), you click to load the pen and apply straight to the lips using the attached brush. Color stays put for a few hours, and it fades evenly. While the more deeply pigmented colors, like L303 leave behind a stain, L307 did not stain my lips. It also did not feather or smear or migrate.
Glazed Lips are unscented and contain plant seed oils, Vitamins E and C, and omega fatty acids. The texture is very silky, not sticky or goopy, though your hair will stick if the wind blows it across your mouth. It's just the nature of the beast.
|Sadly, L307 is FAR too orange and warm for me|
Bottom line: If you like lip gloss and enjoy fidding with a non-traditional applicator, consider Glazed Lips.
Ellis Faas is now sold at sephora.com.
