As a long time fan of Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes formula I shouldn't have been surprised with the awesomeness of the new shades that were released recently. I already knew that they were long-lasting, kind to my skin, easy to work with and blend (just ignore the built-in applicator. Use a brush and/or fingers). Ellis Faas has a wonderful approach to color and avoids hues that don't appear in nature. While her colors and texture can lend themselves to the most avant-garde editorial images (see the portfolio on her website), Ellis's products are meant to look as human and flattering as makeup can be.
Creamy Eyes E115 is a medium purple. But it's hard to describe this shade and the way it looks on skin, enhancing eye color and providing a focal point. As you can see in the swatches, you only need the tiniest amount of this cream shadow. The first time you use the pen it takes quite a bit of effort to get the product out and you end up with way too much of it on your hands (literally). Consequent uses are more controlled and you learn how to get just the right amount. I highly recommend thoroughly cleaning the applicator with a makeup removing wipe to avoid clogging.
Bottom Line: as always, wonderful product, annoying applicator, still worth it for the stunning results.
Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes ($36) is available from ellisfaas.com. The product was sent to me free of charge for consideration and review.
