Review: Ellis Faas Mascara in “Black”


Ellis Faas Mascara in Milk Chocolate

Availability: Sephora
Price: $34.00

Company’s Description

A creamy mascara that perfectly coats, lengthens and separates each individual lash. This mascara is ideal for creating customized looks. In one coat, it accentuates your lashes with subtlety; additional coats frame your eyes with lush, more dramatic effect.

Ellis Faas’s mascara is said to separate and lengthen. This mascara comes in two (2) shades: Black and Milk Chocolate. This review is for the shade Black. - Free shipping on orders over $35

Packaging: 9.5/10

Like with all of Ellis Faas’s tube packaging, this mascara comes in a nifty, unique, silver, plastic pen tube shaped like a bullet. The tube is thin and light-weight.

Quality: 9.5/10

This mascara has a slightly creamy, medium consistency. It deepens the color of your lashes and does a great job of not clumping or making the lashes stick together, even if you apply multiple coats. The formula doesn’t impart dramatic volume, but it does a good job of defining and lengthening.

This mascara also holds up well throughout the day. Though it’s not waterproof, it stays put through the day without smudging or flaking.

Ease of Use: 9/10

The creamy formula means you should let the mascara dry before you blink normally, but the formula otherwise is easy to apply and resists clumping. I found the length of the wand (from the base of the bristles to the handle) to be a little awkward, though.

Price: 9/10

For $34.00 you get 0.277 ounces of product. This is a comparable price and amount of product to other high-end brands like Dolce & Gabbana and Givenchy.
