Empty, clean, mail, repeat
We believe we’re each responsible for the waste we create—and that includes every foundation, mascara and lipstick we make at Elate. We've partnered with PACT to ensure all of our packaging is recycled responsibly. Simply love your Elate, empty it, clean it and mail it- or return it to any participating in-store location.
Our ingredients are about 75% organic. We strive to make our ingredients as organic as possible but will always choose fair trade over organic if we are unable to have both. It is important to us that every person involved in the making of our cosmetics is treated ethically and fairly.
We work closely with a green certified, fair trade manufacturer in China - where the bamboo is water processed and never chemically treated.
As bamboo is more readily available within Asia, we believe it is more climate-friendly (or sustainable) to have our products assembled where it is harvested, and then shipped to us.
Our bamboo supplier was carefully selected based on their FSC Certification. The Forest Stewardship Council Certification is a rigorous process, which includes an individual assessment and yearly audits.
We use a vegan-based carnauba wax that is derived for the leaves of the Copernicia prunifera tree.
Different from the palm grown and harvested in South East Asia, this powder is extracted from the leaves of the tree and does not require the tree to be brought down. Some ingredients, such as Stearic Acid, are also palm based and are supplied by RSPO certified suppliers who are regularly audited. You can learn more about the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil here.
All Elate packaging is elligible to be returned to us for proper recycling and disposal. Just clean your empty containers and send them back to us, we'll take care of the rest.
Yes, we offer sample kits of all of our foundation and concealers so that you can find the perfect shade before committing. Our sample options can be found on our Sample Kits page here, and will come packaged in recyclable/reusable aluminum tins. If you are unsure of your matching shade, we encourage you to purchase a sample size before committing to a full size product.
Handy for on the go
This palette fits nicely into my make-up bag and allows me to do quick fixes on the go or travel easily. I bought it when the default pan shape was circular and love it even more now that the pans are square and I can fit more into my on the go palette. The mirror is super handy as well!
Good size and versatility
This is my second elate pallet. I have a medium one that now holds all my face colors while this one holds all my eye colors & brow balm (seriously don't sleep on this product!). It's so convenient to have this at home, and then be able to customize it for travel (bronzer, blush, brow balm). So safe, sleek, simple, but so very useful! Would love to see the whole bottom magnetized as others have mentioned rather than the dots.
Thank you for your review, Claire! We appreciate that you took the time to write about our Capsule Palette. We also love your feedback!
Cute and functiinak
Looks great, works fantastically and reduces waste. 10/10.
Thanks for such a kind review, Devon. Are Capsule Palettes are the perfect way to customize your beauty ritual so that you have everything you need in one place. Sustainable AND convenient!
Perfect for at-home or travel
Honestly, the best part about this pallet is that you can customize what you put in it! While I am at-home, I keep all of my pressed eye colors in there. While I am on the go, it fits my pressed foundation, cheek/lip color, and eye colors. I love that I don't have to fill a whole drawer full of different pallets in order to have options!
Thank you for your review, Cecily! We love the option to customize palettes and are so happy that you do too. Being able to put everything in one place is such a great feeling, especially when you are on the go!
Pretty and Practical
Whoever thought of this idea is a genius. I actually have this palette and the pro palette because I've collected all of my favorite colors of shadows and blushes to keep them in. When I run out of a color I replace it with a refill and I can't tell you how happy it makes me to not have a bunch of plastic containers to throw out. I feel so good about reducing waste. Thanks, Elate!
We are so happy you love your Capsule Palette, Barbara! Did you know that there are so many different combinations of products that can fit in them? For example, you can fit 8 different Eye/Brow/Creme Revealer pans, 1 Foundation pan & 1 Cheek pan, 2 Cheek pans & 1 Eye/Brow/Creme Revealer pan, or 4 Eye/Brow/Creme Revealer pans & 1 Cheek OR Foundation pan! There is so much room to be creative and customize your perfect palette!
