If you love to play with light and shade in your make-up, then Ellis Faas Glow Up is going to be right up your street. It’s one of the few highlighters that doesn’t rely solely on glitter to create sheen, instead, it’s more of a fine and subtle gleam. I’ll caveat that by saying there isn’t any sun today but I’ve put it under a light and the twinkles are very understated.
The shade of Ellis Faas Glow Up I have to swatch is Deep Glow – an apricot tone that would look beautiful over deeper skin tones. There are two other shades; Porcelain Glow and Satin Glow – Porcelain has a pink tint and Satin is a couple of tones down from Deep.
As you can see, golden notes give it a soft gleam – probably the closest to the famed ‘halo effect’ that you’re likely to get. The powder is super-fine and very soft (see my fat finger print right in the middle where I went in too enthusiastically!) which is clever, given that it’s oil free.
Price wise, they do a weird thing by selling the powder and the packaging separately – I can see this makes sense if you want to change up your shades but on the other hand, £8 for that tin seems steep. The actual Ellis Faas Glow Up powder is £18 – I was expecting it to be more I must admit.
If you’re in town today (11th), Ellis Faas Makeup Ambassador, Yin Lee, is on hand to give advice in Liberty, but otherwise, head to Lovemakeup.co.uk HERE to buy on-line.
