Ellis Faas Concealer Review

Ellis Faas Concealer

Ellis Faas isn’t very well known in the US, though this high end brand probably should be. Ellis is a very well known make up artist. She’s worked with brands like Clinique, Lancôme and MAC. She helped create the Biotherm make-up line. And now she has her own line, and this concealer is pretty much to die for.

First, can I just gush about the packaging? It comes in a metal bullet/pen as pictured above. This thing is heavy duty and feels aaaahhmazing. For reals. It’s heavy, super smooth, and once you pull off that top you’ll find a nice concealer brush. The concealer comes out of the pen to saturate the brush, which you can then use to direct your application.

Consistency: Liquid
Blendability: Blends very easily with a light touch
Buildable coverage: Yes
Feeling on skin: Lightweight
Wear: ~10 hours
Problems with wear: No Caking or settling into lines
Shades Available: There are 8 shades available, I used S201

Buy Ellis Faas Concealer at Neiman Marcus or DermStore.

    Christine, excellent series! Do you know how we could determine which shade of the concealer would be the correct color? I didn't see samples or a shade chart. Thanks!

    I haven't tried her products, but I've read about them and they sound awesome!

    Anon- If you follow the link above to the Ellis Faas website they have actual pictures of each shade when you scroll down. I found my shade to be very accurate in its pic. Hope that helps!

    Aleya- I've heard the same, it's a good excuse to visit Space NK I think!

    Hi. My name is Michelle. I have been interested in this concealer for quite some time. I'm guessing that I'm either an S201 or in between this and the S202. But I prefer to actually test the shades rather than guessing using the website. If I am reading your posting correctly, you were able to get a sample. How did you do this and would other persons such as myself be able to get samples of selected shades?

    Thanks so much and by the way, I absolutely LOVE your reviews.
