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.
More Neutral on Olive Skin Tones
This shade looks pretty complimentary on olive skin tones. It still gives a little bit of that olive-y/gray but it isn't too crazy. I actually wear this shade a bit more than my regular brown eyeliner because I think it makes my green eyes pop just a little it more! If you are looking for something fun but not too far out of your comfort zone... this is it!
Thank you for your review, Cecily! We love to hear that Able has been a fun addition to your eye makeup looks. Its subtle green shade must look so beautiful with your green eyes!
Love this eyeliner. Own it in two colours. Goes with on very easily with a nice texture.
Hi Devon! Thanks for reviewing our Hearth EyeLine Pencil. We are so glad that it has been the perfect addition to your sustainable beauty collection!
I love this eyeliner pencil! The color is strong but so natural. I also feel like it applies pretty smooth and easily, I might have to press a little hard but nothing uncomparable to what I've had to do with other eyeliner pencils. I haven't tried sharpening yet but my experience with it has been so great!
Thank you for such a kind review, Anna! It is amazing to hear that our EyeLine Pencil in Hearth has worked so well for your beauty ritual. We would be honoured if you signed up for the Elate Beauty Ritualist program, which will earn you rewards for leaving reviews like this one, donating, and purchasing the sustainable products you love!
Love this eyeliner
I just love this eyeliner. Perfect shade for everyday use. It stays on all day, no smudging or racoon eyes!
Thank you for your review, Vanda! We are thrilled that you love our Hearth EyeLine Pencil so much. The shade must make your eyes look absolutely stunning!
I love this pencil so much. I use it everyday, as a brow pencil and a smudgy eyeliner. The colour is a true neutral brown, not too warm or too cool, which lends itself to being so multipurpose. Sometimes I use it as a lipliner if I'm wearing a bold lip (deeper skin tones could use this as a **** lipliner). The formula is creamy, but it does set down and wears very well throughout the day without needing to be retouched. For an event or night out, I would probably recommend setting it with a powder or eyeshadow to keep it in place.
Thank you for your review of our Hearth EyeLine Pencil, Kali! It's an honour to see it in your beauty bag, we love that you use it on your brows, lips and eyes. Our hope is that all of our products can be used for multiple purposes, and you've just made our dream come true. We can't wait to see what you think of our other eco-friendly makeup!
