As with the other brush dispensers (shown here), click to load the pen and apply straight to the lips using the attached brush. Color stays put for a few hours, and it fades evenly, leaving behind a berry stain.
The Glazed Lips formulation is unscented and contains plant seed oils for hydration, as well as Vitamins E and C for antioxidant properties, and omega fatty acids (not sure what those are doing for my lips, but it feels nice). The texture is silky, never sticky or goopy. It feels less like a lip gloss than a liquid lipstick, and despite the moisturizing properties, the color does not seep into lip lines.
|Ellis Faas Glazed Lips in L303|
As you can see above, L303 is more clear and sheer, compared to L203, which is more opaque and contains much more brown.
To achieve a more subtle, stained look, I either apply a dot to the center of my lips and blend out with a fingertip or I blot. I prefer the former method, as it wastes less product.
Bottom line: Another Ellis Faas winner.
