Ellis Faas definitely knows how to play up eyes and
create a sensation with her Light Eye Pens. This highly acclaimed
Dutch makeup artist manages to blend and refine light and color so effortlessly
that these Light Eye Pens seem to also share that radiance with your
entire face. I was fortunate to review two from the five shades in that
line to share with you, E301 and E303.

Just like the Creamy Lip Pens I reviewed, these Light
Eye Pens also come in a silver bullet-like tube. However, these have a
plastic brush that the thick liquid flows to instead of a sponge.
E301 is metallic liquid metal almost like casting
your eyes with molten silver and beige peeking through.
E303 is a gleaming array of bronze light with gold
intertwined to make it even more dazzling. The color viewed in a certain
light has traces of blue, violet, and pink-red.

These pens do take a bit of clicking before the color
flows for the first time. Nonetheless, the effort is worth it for that
gorgeous multidimensional color.
I did notice these liquid shadows do have a tendency to
dry quickly so you need to hurry and work. Taking a small dab of the
shadow from the loaded plastic bristles, I applied to my lids using my finger as
my tool and blended. When I was through with a thin layer, the look was
subtly chic whereas too heavily piling up the layers makes it quite dramatic. How you want to alter the look is up to you!
These shadows also hold up remarkably long without
creasing. I am talking about lasting all day even without a
I already have my sights on the three remaining
others in this line to give you an idea of how much I liked these pens.
Yet, I am torn between my first choice the E302 (the green-gold) to the
E305 (the turquoise-burgundy) or the E304 (violet-lilac). What
are your favorites?
These Ellis Faas Light Eye Pens retail for
