I have long been a big fan of Ellis Faas Mascara. I love the long wand, which makes it easier for me to reach those smaller lashes. I love the way it lengthens like crazy. I love how while it’s not waterproof, it stays on without smearing all day. In fact, since it isn’t waterproof it is extremely easy to remove. I love how it separates lashes and holds the curl. I also love how it seems to last forever…twice as long as any other tube of mascara.
Now there is even more to love, because I have discovered it comes in two colors that give me the option of drama or no drama: E401 Black and E402 Milk Chocolate ($34).
The Black shade is a glossy black that is fantastic for lengthening and separating. It gives all kinds of drama with just one coat, and it’s easy to amp up the drama with more because it never flakes or clumps.
The Milk Chocolate shade is fabulous for days when I want lashes, I want some definition, but I just don’t need any drama. It’s the perfect ‘daytime’ or weekend mascara. The brush is a little different from the one for the Black shade, it is a little longer and skinnier.
See the difference? Milk Chocolate give me quiet, soft lashes that are still there, while Black gives me living large lashes all the way up to my eyebrows.
These two mascaras suit both sides of my personality – the quiet side and the party side. Which one do think would suit you best? - Lisa
