The skin veil (£34) comes in the same silver pen packaging as the other Ellis Faas products, just bigger. It has quite a large brush on the end and comes with two vials of product (7ml each) which you just click into the end of the silver pen.
I got the lightest shade S101, I don’t detect any overly pink nor yellow tones with this, and the colour seems very neutral. The texture is surprising dense and quite creamy but upon the skin it blends out to give sheer coverage although you can build with ease for medium coverage. The finish is neither matte not overly luminous just natural, most definitely your skin but better. Just to note for hygiene reasons I don’t use the brush to apply the product as I have acne prone skin, I just dispense it on clean hands and apply with fingers or a brush.
Swatch on left is with it dabbed on, swatch on right is blended.
This is a heavily silicone based foundation but it has not broken me out, although I have noticed that if I use it day after day I do seem to get more clogged pores than usual. I have also found that if I don’t use any powder it doesn’t last the day.
Overall this causes me no skin reaction, is a great colour match and doesn’t highlight my dry areas, however it’s not something I can use everyday so I’m not sure if this will be a re-buy for me.
I bought this from liberty.co.uk, you can also buy Ellis Faas from misebeauty.com.
