Elate Cosmetics: A Review

I found Elate Cosmetics through Instagram last year and was just enamored by their beautiful products. They are a Canadian based company that specializes in Green Beauty and clean makeup. I purchased their Mattifying Powder, Bronzer, Mini-Wonder Creme, Mascara, Tantric Lipstick and one of their Eye Shadow Trios. Some of these products were knockouts that I will continually repurchase and others were just ok.

My favorite of all the products I purchased was the Mattifying Powder. It is an absolutely fantastic powder that keeps any any all oil at bay when paired with my 100% Pure Mattifying Primer. I use this on a daily basis and will continue to repurchase the refills when I run out. So far I haven’t found any powder quite like this one. The only drawback is that the powder has a slight yellow tint to it, so you may need to compensate with your foundation or bronzer.

The mascara is another of the products I really liked. While it is no LilyLolo or Root mascara, it is definitely one of the better ones I’ve found. This mascara does not flake off my lashes so I like to pair it over my Honeybee Gardens mascara (which flakes like crazy). Between these two mascaras my lashes are thick and long. If you’re just looking for a lengthening mascara this one would work for you.

I was not impressed but not really unimpressed with the bronzer and wonder creme. Both of these items are nice but I have found better options that I prefer. The lipstick and eyeshadow trio I was sadly unimpressed with. The lipstick is reminiscent of Au Natural’s in that it is very hard and doesn’t spread over the lips nicely. The pressed eyeshadows are similar to Hynt Beauty’s in that they don’t blend well and are WAY too pigmented to not blend. While the colors on each of these are very nice I probably won’t repurchase either of these items since I have options I absolutely love from Root.

Elate Cosmetics is a fantastic Green Beauty brand that you should absolutely try! I highly suggest purchasing their Mattifying powder and their mascara. With USD to CAD exchange rates it’s like getting a discount! Shipping is also super fast, taking into consideration that you are shipping Internationally if coming to the US. I think you’ll love this brand as much as I do if you try them out.
