Oh, how I love makeup! Oh, how I love toxic-free makeup! Let me tell you about Elate cosmetics. It’s Canadian and awesome in a nutshell. Being an avid fan of green beauty I was excited to discover Elate and review some their new colours for Spring. I haven’t come across anything negative to say about the line so, here’s the love. I want you to visit their site and compare the ingredients with what you have. Does it impress you? Does it make you question why there’s so much? What are parabens? Does your major cosmetic brand disclose ingredients on their site?
Elate is so simple in terms of ingredients and are transparent, the makeup goes on great, it stays on nice and it not heavy or irritating at all. It’s “gorgeously green.”
Why toxic-free? Why gluten-free? Why cruelty-free?
Because all of the above is not so great. That’s why! I personally don’t want to use makeup that has carcinogenic ingredients, nor do I want it tested on animals.
They offer high-quality, toxic free, eco-friendly cosmetics at a fair price.
Elate Mascara in Black~ I love this mascara! I found with other brands my eyes were getting sensitive and itchy. I can get a beautiful, natural, smudge free look with their mascara. It feels gentle, it goes on nice and I can layer for a fuller lash. It is wonderful.
Elate Liquid Eyeliner~ I never thought I’d find a fabulous toxic free liquid eyeliner! I love liquid eye liner it has been my look since I was 16. I am picky about the the colour depth, the type of brush, the consistency and overall hold up. It stays on my eyes and lasts and there’s no cracking. I gotta say, I love the purple IDOL colour! I never thought to use purple but I loved purple eyeshadow for my hazel eyes so why not eye liner? It is 10x better than a competitor that you can find at the Bay that blares its loud music.
Creme Blush I love my colour Heroine as it gives me a boost of youthfulness and I feel so rosy and fresh when I use it. I like to apply it with my fingers and blend with my brush. Creme blushes are easy to use and multipurpose. I usually blend it with my lipstick of use it alone and add more colour with my lip liners. But as you can see above, I have a nice natural glow that is not greasy. It has borage oil, argan and jojoba just to name a few of the ingredients.
Lipsticks~ There is a colour for you in there! I love the moisture and how smooth it goes it one. Muse is a great everyday colour that I never leave home with out it. Here’s a kiss for you, my friends. I’ve blended Muse and Heroine together. Made with organic ingredients to nourish is my kind of lipstick.
I want you to pop over to their site and check out the ingredients which is why I haven’t gone too much into it, but it is beyond refreshing to find a Canadian company using such clean ingredients as such as I can achieve great looks that are healthy for my skin, in style and that nourishes my lips and soothes my eyes. My everyday look can be found thanks to Elate Cosmetics. I like that I can such a nice natural look and healthy glow. Oh how I love Heroine, Creme Cheeks!
