Beauties, I have been meaning to talk about these gorgeous lipsticks for such a long time it's not even funny anymore. Well there is ANOTHER beautiful lipstick brand that most definitely deserves its own spot on my blog, but today is reserved for Elate Cosmetics lippies.
Elate Cosmetics is a Canadian brand founded by Melodie Reynolds. The brand is vegan, cruelty, gluten and toxic free. Their mission is to care for each other, our communities, and our world. Through healthy ingredients, sustainable practices, and wellness minded goals, they strive to build confidence through kindness, and allow us to create our own standard of beauty. They value spirit, kindness, wellness, community, and authenticity. If I remember correctly it was the beautiful Julie who inspired me to try Elate's lipsticks. Or it was some other green beauty bunny who raved about them (I told you this review was a long time coming and I don't remember everything anymore haha). Anyways, I was very intrigued by them. The beautiful shades and the stunning bamboo packaging were calling my name.<3
They have three different types of lipsticks - Crème, Sheer and Vibrant. I have two from their vibrant line and the third one is a sheer colour. My three shades have pretty much the same ingredients, with the exception of different colorants. They are moisturizing, buttery, soft and not chalky due to Shea and Mango Butter, very lovely to wear and they last a long time (especially both vibrant shades). They are all absolutely gorgeou! Spirit and Wild (both from the Vibrant collection) are very pigmented and you can also apply very little and sheer them out. Vivacious on the other hand is sheer and is one of those lipsticks that you don't need a mirror when applying it. It's sheer but you can build it up (but not to the same extent as the other two).
Vivacious - a sweet soft berry red. One of those on-trend brownish (redish brown) lipsticks. An everyday glossy lipstick.
Spirit - a vivid and vivacious cool pink. Super vibrant pastel pink with a hint of lavender that gives it that cool tone. Spirit will give you that true statement lips. With this one I recommend that you don't apply too much because it can look a bit "cakey".
Wild - a punchy, pinky purple. Way more wearable than it looks in the bullet and a little goes a long way. You can create such a stunning berry stain. Talking about stains, this one in particular can leave a stain and if you top it off with a clear balm or lip gloss your lips will be looking so gorgeous. Perfect shade for the upcoming months.
Elate Cosmetics lipsticks stole my heart and if I hadn't had so many lipsticks already, I would be ordering more. But they do always create new shades and I can always find more space for all of them. :) Get Elate Cosmetics goodies at The Green Jungle Beauty Shop, where you can use my code "Jana" and get 10% off your order.
