Building a sustainable future starts with transparent practices. Elate ingredients are carefully chosen for efficacy and sustainability. Our ethical supply chain means we prioritize people and the planet, and balance performance with purpose.

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.
Such a gorgeous sparkly colour! Very buildable so you can just apply a bit of shimmer or go more glam
Great formula, minimal creasing
Ethereal and Rise are my favs so far! I find that this shadow does not crease easily, which I appreciate as I often struggle with shadow sliding off. I do wish these were cheaper. The size went down and the price went up. It's pretty outrageous when you consider how little product is in here. I know they'll say "but the ingredients are high quality!" sure, they are, but it's still overpriced.
Best Powder Eyeshadow
I tried the shades beloved and earthen and these were absolutely the best shades. I like that these blended so well and have wonderful ingredients as products from Elate always does. I might try other shades too.
Favorite eyeshadow! This shade can be used as an eyeshadow and highlighter! I've also tried Beloved, Kindle, and Quitessance. Really wish Kindle wasn't discontinued or at least replaced with another orange based eyeshadow. Either way love the formula and will be repurchasing this shade in particular soon since I'm almost out!
I love a natural look and I like how subtle but buildable this shadow is. So far I have tried beloved, sweet, and ethereal and I loved all three. I also tried union, which hardpanned really badly and modish, which was nice but I was hoping it would be more purple and less brown.
