About a month ago I came across another natural/organic line that is also local. Elate Clean Cosmetics, is a makeup brand from Victoria, BC, and I discovered them at the perfect tim! When I first found this makeup line they just happened to be having a contest called, “Artist Call.” This is something they now do every year. Elate looks to collaborate with makeup artists that use clean products and asks you to enter by submitting a look using their new collection and theme inspiration. To my surprise.. I WON!
The prize was not only a full kit of their makeup collection but I got to go meet the owner Melodie and do a tutorial video with her explaining my winning look! This will be released at the beginning of April, when the line launches. Be sure to watch for it! It was an absolute blast working with Melodie. She is so much fun, super passionate and such an inspiration! So enjoy this full blog post as I am lucky enough to show you a variety of their products and fill you with lots of knowledge about this new amazing brand!
Elate Clean Cosmetics is an all-natural and vegan line that focuses on high quality ingredients.
I personally asked Melodie if Elate is Organic or Natural and this is the answer I got, “At Elate we use the best ingredients possible always with an emphasis on organic. Most of the oils and butters we use are certified organic, but there are some cases where what we need is simply not available in organic variety. We also only use mineral mined without using child Labour, and purchased using fair trade practices.” I love when a makeup creator can tell me proudly what types of ingredients they use!
Fun Fact: All the eyeshadows and pressed powders come in packaging that you can plant! Now that is what I call not a waste. Your packaging can actually be planted and will grow wild flowers and herbs. AMAZING!
On the topic of their packaging, that is one thing that really caught my eye. I absolutely love how solid all their packaging is and the wooden design is so unique.
Here is a before and after makeup look I created with all Elate Clean Cosmetics!
Fresh Tint Foundation-Fairest
Univeral Creme- Love
Flushed Pressed Cheek Colour- Sunkiss Bronzer
Lid: Create Pressed Eye Colour- LIthe
Corner and Crease: Create Pressed Eye Colour- Modish
Essential Mascara- Black
Create Pressed Eye Colour- Stillness
Moisturizing Lip Gloss- Fierce
I have found their makeup to be very pigmented and the feel is very nice. My model said the lasting power was really good. Our sleeping beauty even took a nap that day and said it was all still on!
The most exciting part about this brand is they only launched this past fall. That means there are many more products to be launched in the near future! A little birdie told me that may include pressed blushes, liquid liner and some lip liners!
Make sure to check out this brand on your Think Dirty App, to see how well they rate as a clean product.
And if you are interested in buying this makeup you can do so on their website:
They will be sold in select stores within the next few months.
Price Point: Under $30.00
You can bet that we will definitely be starting to stock Elate Clean Cosmetics in our kits as we do our switch to clean, organic and natural products!
Have a great week everybody!
