Elate Essential Mascara in Black
Elate Essential Mascara plumps and lengthens your lashes, but is created for sensitive eyes to be sweat resistant. Available exclusively in black.
Made in Canada. Packaged in a bamboo outer container. Note inside there is a plastic inner casing which is needed to retain the liquid mascara; using bamboo means they use much less plastic than standard mascaras.

I like this one!By: Joy on 30 April 2019I had previously been using the Ere Perez waterproof mascara. It was the best I had found although I did have to clean up the under eye smudging throughout the day. The last tube of Ere Perez I bought was quite highly perfumed which gave me an instant headache. I needed to find a replacement and decided to try the Elate mascara as it had consistently good reviews. I am very impressed! It doesn't go on quite as smoothly as the Ere Perez but it has good depth of colour and much better lasting power. I don't need to be forever checking for panda eyes and at the end of the day there is still good coverage - the mascara doesn't disappear through the day like some other natural mascaras. It is also easy to remove.
Long wearing and gentleBy: Anonymous on 18 April 2019Lasts the day but also wipes off easily.
great :)By: Alison on 14 March 2019I really like this mascara. It's not only got a good texture, but the brush is good too, which in my experience is one of the most important factors. It also seems like a generous amount of mascara inside the tube. It washes off easily with face wash and doesn't leave massive panda eyes. I was hesitant to spend this much on a single mascara but I'm glad I did.
Lovely lashesBy: Anonymous on 12 March 2019This year I was determined to go even more plastic free and so looking at other parts of my life I'd not thought of previously, like makeup. I also have sensitive eyes so was a little nervous to change... however I am glad I did. While it is not waterproof (so don't go swimming after applying!) it is resistant and doesn't left residue under my eyes like the one I was using, and my poor sensitive eyes are very happy also. The mascara gives a nice coverage, my husband even commented that my eyes looked great. You can get even bigger lashes with a second application too, for something different again. Yes it is expensive comparatively, but I think worth it for a lovely product that has less plastic waste.
ElatedBy: Jude on 17 February 2019After dangers untold and hardships unnumbered I have fought my way beyond the goblin city and a plethora of natural mascaras to find the one! It is a beautiful product, black as my cold dead heart. The only natural mascara that I've tried that doesn't bleed and give me panda eyes over a full day's wear in hot SA summers. Oh joy, oh rapture! It is pricey but I am in love. Packaging, brush and application on point.
