REVIEW: Ellis Faas Mascara In Black (E401)

Ellis Faas Mascara E401

Review Of Ellis Faas Mascara - E401

I have no eye lashes. Nada. Zero. Zilch. Hence, for a person like me being a mascara-whore comes with my existence. But... It has never been! Nope! I haven't really dabbled in mascara and I can count upto an exact number of 3 mascaras that I have used in the whole of my life. Ellis Faas Mascara being the 4th! Go Figure...

Why have I never taken mascaras seriously, I do not know. When did I start taking them seriously, I do not remember. Why did I start taking them seriously, I cannot fathom...
My biggest mistake of a mascara was the Maybelline Collossal Volume Waterproof Mascara. It made my barely there lashes stick out unceremoniously while making it extremely painful for me to remove them before bed. My current favorite is MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara, which makes my lashes intensely black and gives volume to them...

Ellis Faas Mascara E401

However, it is this Ellis Faas Mascara that has swept me off my feet and I am seriously contemplating elopement! Pinky Swear! It is a magical mascara (you will see in the images below) that separates, coats and lengthens my almost null lashes and make them look like they were the most naturally beautiful lashes anyone could ever have! Honestly!

It comes in a bullet shaped casing that looks like Star-Trek met Hurt-Locker and them both are out there fighting the world off non-existent lashes. The Ellis Faas mascara has a really long and a sleek wand that some may find difficult to use. But once you get used to it, you'll realize it gives you better grip and makes your application accurately precise!

It s thankfully odorless and does not sting the eye. It doesn't even make my eyes water like many mascaras in the past have done to me.

This Is WHat Ellis Faas Has To Say:

our mascara is simply the best ;). Creamy, luscious, good for only one coating or for layer after layer, so extremely versatile. And then the packaging is drop-dead gorgeous and sexy...

Availability Of Ellis Faas Mascara

As of now, they are only available through the Ellis Faas website and their shipping to India is FREE! Yay!
If you are not much of an online shopper, then don't be disheartened cause Ellis Faas is opening shop in Mumbai this year! Double Yay! :D

Before & After Images:


It retails at $34

Ooooohhhss And Aaaaahhhhsss!!!
1. It separates, coats and lengthens.
2. Gives me gorgeous lashes.
3. Does not clump even after 4 coats! Trust me, I have tried...
4. Does not sting the eye.
5. Super sexy packaging!
6. Has a long wand that enables precise application.

If you do not mind spending a bomb on a mascara then this will not disappoint cause it is really magical!

Overall Rating:
9/10 (-1 for price and non-availability in India)

P.S. Product sent by PR for consideration. However, my review is honest and is in no way biased.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

Ooooohss And Aaahhss!! 1. Really really stays on forever. 2. Doesn't smudge on my oily lids even after 8 hours of wear. 3. Friendly to the pocket 4. Faces have become quite easily available now. 5. They do not cause any allergies or reactions. 6. They are waterline safe a…

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
