Lips - Lancôme - Juicy Shaker - All

Received this as a treat from a dear friend, so I was loathe to look the gift horse in the mouth and not like this. What can I say? I have Cherry Symphony. The colour is brightening, but after application it all dries down and...keeps on drying. Very irritating. Plus, the smell is pure chemical Kool-Aid horror. Expensive, too. NO.

Concealers - Clove + Hallow - Conceal + Correct

I wanted to cheer on Clove + Hallow, a little green beauty company based in Atlanta, headed by a rather sympathetic-looking young woman with a mission to produce top-quality clean cosmetics at an affordable price.

I've tried so many concealers that I can't even count; their legions include NARS, Chanel, Elate, Shiseido, MAC, Maybelline, Revlon, Lancome, and Laura Mercier …

Liquid - Unlisted Brand - Elate Refresh Foundation

2 months ago

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 …Read more

Highlighters - Unlisted Brand - Elate Cosmetics Universal Creme Highlight - Wonder

This is my favourite product from Elate, a little green beauty company based in Victoria, BC. Their offerings are hit and miss, but this highlighter is quite delightful--chock full of lovely ingredients which feel heavenly on the skin. This gives a wonderful, discreet, warm-toned sheen to cheekbones. Whenever I wear this, I get no end of compliments.

This, plus the Brow Balm are …

First things first: I'm trying to green up my beauty regime, and I'm really pulling for this little company from Victoria, BC. Several of their formulations are superb, their ingredients are exemplary, and their packaging is sustainable (plus they have a refill system). This lip conditioner shade comes from the Fall 2019 Collection--a wearable maroon with a warm undertone. I'm not …Read more

Argh, where do I begin? I'm trying to go green/cruelty-free in my makeup routine. Laura Mercier sell in China and therefore adhere to the practice of animal testing. This line of lipsticks has been discontinued, but I thought I'd say something about the one I have (and am trying to get through), as it's a workhorse. The colour is rich without being garish and creamy without being …Read more

Bought this in Sweet Berries, a flattering, warm, mid-tone sheer pink. I did so want to like this, but it became sludgy and smeary within days and then broke. Too bad.
