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.
Want to try all the colors!
High quality pencil. Feels soft going on and blends beautifully. Love the unique color also. Has lasted me a long time!
The texture of the liner is soft and stays on all day. The color is a perfect brown that can be worn day or night!
I love the green colour. It’s beautiful!
Different colors, different staying power
I'll start by saying that overall these pencils are great. I have fairly oily eyelids, so eye pencils have historically been challenging for me. Given the stellar reviews, I gave these a try, but went in with low expectations. I bought both the black and the green. The black went on the smoothest, looked beautiful, but did do what happens so often for me: smudged within a few hours. Not the product's fault, clearly those with less oily eyelids don't have this problem, so buy based on your historic experience with eye pencils, I say. That one has now gone to a friend. However! The green doesn't glide on quite a smoothly, but because it's that little bit stiffer and drier, it stays put really well. Success! The color is lovely and really brings out my very dark brown eyes, so I'm SUPER pleased with that color. I'm debating trying the brown too, but will probably stop while I'm ahead, lol
Nice and easy for no fuss makeup routine (my fav), good color depth and glides beautifully. Thinking of getting the olive green color next.
