If you’ve ever had your paws on an Ellis Faas pen, you know it’s the answer to all your cosmetic pen dreams. Designed for smooth and meticulous application, you can glide it along your lid on your way out the door and it’ll look like you have OCD. Plus, it’s impervious to smudges, and the colors and metallics look like they came out of the enhanced version of The Wizard of Oz.
Better still, instead of recycling all these empty capsules of magic, Ellis Faas is running a reclamation campaign, handing over the pens to artists, whose final works with them will be auctioned off. Donations go to War Child, an international nonprofit that delivers material and psychosocial support to kids in areas of intense conflict. Pens can be mailed in or delivered to addresses and shops found on the site here.
