Ellis Faas Mascara

There are some reviews I hesitate to do, like foundation, skincare, and well, mascara, just because those items belong in such subjective territory (and if I were to be completely honest, because those are hard to photograph too. I tried taking a million before/after pictures when it comes to foundation but it looks the same). Nevertheless, consider this a shaky first step into expanding product reviews to a broader range.  

Along with the lip products, Ellis Faas sent me some eye products as well, which includes a mascara. I was surprised then because I didn't know the comapny made mascara (or blush, the packaging gave me the impression that it was strictly a lip/eye/skin thing). The Ellis Faas Mascara is said to do three things: coat, lengthen, and separate. It is housed in the same bullet-type packaging, but it's the most "normal" of all its products in that you screw the top open to find a regular mascara wand waiting to make an impact on your lashes.

Top-bottom: Bare Lashes, One Coat, Two Coats

As far as its coating and separating and lengthening qualities, all is well. I mean, this is mascara. If it gets the job done on my straight nonexistent Asian lashes (seriously. did you see that first picture?), I'm happy. I prefer using this mascara on top of another, like one with a volumizing formula, to get the best use out of it.

I know this mascara comes at a shocking price, but the one thing that justifies it for me is at the end of a long day, my lashes remain curled as if it just went through a round of pinching. 'tis a novel feeling, that.

Ellis Faas Mascara retails for $34 and is available at,, and Space NK.

The product in this post was sent from the company for review purposes.

P.S: I've picked a winner for the Lancome Erika F giveaway!


  1. OK, you've enabled me! I'm getting the mascara!

  2. Looks like a fabulous mascara! But yikes I still can't justify that price, maybe when I'm older/get a job LOL!

  3. I am an Eliis Faas fan and although it is lovely I prefer my Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara over this.

  4. Well, I will never get around how amazing your lip shape is. Oh yes, and the mascara looks cool too ;)

  5. Jamilla- :)

    Maggie- I know... I hesitate at that myself. Seems like such a huge amount to spend on something I have to toss in 3 months :(

    Anonymous- Oooh! I've heard such great things about it but I've never tried it out long enough to make my own judgments.

    Rocaille- *blushes*

  6. Total enabler you are! Just like Jamilla said! :P

    I love the Majolica Majorca mascara to keep my straight asian lashes curled but it is such a pain in the butt to take off!

  7. Gorgeous make up, i think that majorca mascara is the bast way to put your eyes in first view position of viewer

  8. What lip product are you wearing in this shot? Its lovely!

  9. Yes, please let us know what lipstick you are wearing. It's a lovely shade!

  10. I actually remember! Oh wow. It's Chanel rouge coco Baroque (faded) topped with Fresh lip tint in Passion
