Elate is a green brand based out of Victoria, BC. Having worked in green beauty for ages, I recently decided to try the line to see if they were any good--I discovered three gems in the lot (the Brow Balm, the Mascara and the highlighter in Wonder). Everything else is sub-par. It's hard to garner honest feedback on the line, as a) Green Beauty reporting (on Youtube, etc) tends to be a bit gushing to the point of being "culty" and b) the folks on the company marketing team assiduously delete any reviews under 4 stars. First the good: the powder foundation in the line has terrific ingredients and comes in a refillable (if rather unwieldy) bamboo compact. Unfortunately, the colour range is unnaturally orange, plus the texture is like hard clay--impossible to pick up, even with a flat-topped brush. Once I scraped the top off, it was better, but application was uneven and chalky and just plain awful. No, no, and no again. Disappointing.
