When a make up product called “Hot Lips” landed on my desk, I immediately expected a vibrant and bold lip colour. Well this brand new formula from the revolutionary make up brand, Ellis Faas, did not disappoint. Actually it blew me away. Introducing the Ellis Faas ‘Hot Lips’
, this fantastic new product will have your pout looking hot, hot, hot!
Hot Lips is a liquid lipstick formula, that is non-greasy and super longwearing. You can eat, drink and be merry for hours and your lip colour is just as strong as when you first applied it. The product applies wet but dries fast, and has an amazing creamy texture with a soft matte finish. The formula also contains power ingredients such as Prune Seed Extract, Candelilla Wax and Vitamin E to ensure lips are plump and moisturised.
It comes in the standard Ellis Faas packaging, which is a silver pen-like casing, it’s pretty cool albeit a little awkward. Let’s just say I’d never have it in my carryon when going through airport security! Pop open the lid, and you’ll see a sponge applicator with holes in it. Twist the base of the pen clockwise to dispense the product through the holes and apply it directly onto the lips (or use a lip brush if you prefer, but I’m often too lazy lol). Application is easy with the sponge tip, and it glides on like a breeze for even coverage. As it’s so pigmented, you only need the tiniest amount of product, I find 1-2 twists plenty. The product also has a fun, candy like smell so totally makes me smile whenever I put it on!
Ellis Faas Hot Lips in Bright Red L401
An amazing true red shade. Perfect for a statement lip that instantly brightens the face.
Ellis Faas Hot Lips in Rose Violet L406
A lovely mauve toned rosy pink. Quite a sophisticated shade that’s easy to wear, day or night.
The Ellis Faas Hot Lips range is permanent and available now from Mecca Cosmetica stores and online, RRP AU$49 each.

It is my firm belief that no makeup look is complete without lipstick or lipgloss. It just helps to complete and/or brighten up the face no matter how much or little makeup you’re wearing. So today I want to share with you these 6 stunning new releases from the Face of Australia Lip Quench
range. Once you check them out you’ll never want to have naked lips again!
Pure Pink is exactly what the what you’d expect from the name. It is a stunning, BRIGHT, cool pink lipstick that just screams summer. It’s such a happy colour that instantly brightens your face and mood when you wear it. Yes, it does looks a little intimidating in the tube and at first I didn’t think it would work with my warm skintone, but surprisingly it does… I call it the magic of Tom Ford!
Looking for a lipstick that looks good and is good for your lips? Well look no further!
Introducing Australian Brand SAX Cosmetics and their fabulous range of lipsticks. With two fantastic formulations – Sheer and Rich – both packed with power ingredients, and at such an affordable price. There’s something for everyone!
The Sheer Lip Colour range comes in 6 different shades and are designed to add a sheer tint of colour to the lips. They have a light, smooth texture and feel quite moisturizing on. Containing beeswax, lanolin and silk powder, the Sheer range helps condition and protect your lips whilst also giving you a pretty yet natural, glossy looking pout.
The Rich Lip Colour range also has 6 shades and as the name suggests the colours a richer and fuller. You get amazing pigmentation from these yet they don’t feel at all heavy or drying. The texture is oh so creamy and lasting power is great! The lipstick also has the added benefits of ingredients such as calendula oil, evening primrose oil, jojoba oil and vitamin E, which help to sooth, hydrate, protect and repair your lips. One swipe of these babies on your lips and you get rich, full colour with a beautiful, velvety soft finish.
