Makeup Wars – My Favourite Foundations

This week for Makeup Wars we are sharing some of our favourite foundations and BB creams. I have fair skin that is very dry and dehydrated. Sometimes I can have some flakiness around my nose and on my chin. What I look for in a foundation is a formula that will even out the redness in my skin while covering up some of the hyper pigmentation. I need it to have a natural or dewy finish so it doesn't cause my already dry skin to look look even more parched. It is important to me that I don't see my foundation and that it doesn't

Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes E107 Taupe and Lights E303 Bronze – Matte and Metallic Neutrals You Don’t Want to Miss

My first experience with the Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes and Lights eye shadows was when I purchased the Ellis Faas Spring 2012 Set. Wow! Spring 2012? Was it that long ago.

Ellis Faas Creamy Lips L108 Pale Peach Lipstick – Photos, Swatches, Review

The Ellis Faas Creamy Lips ($35 US) lipsticks have the traditional click pen packaging. The applicator tip for the Creamy Lips is a flat sponge tip. The shade L108 is a lovely pale peach with a cream finish with subtle gloss and no shimmer. I really like this formula. It feels very moisturizing and nice on the lips. Even with it's hydrating and creamy feel it still manages to last for several hours. The formula is very pigmented but has a nice hint of transparency. While I love the formula the click pen packaging is a struggle
