Elate | Essential Mascara

Category: Eyes
Tags: bamboo,, black, elate, mascara
SKU: elate-essential-mascara


A truly universal mascara that adds length and volume for every beauty style. With one light coat for a natural eye-opening look, to clean and smooth layers to bravely go bold–this mascara transitions effortlessly. Feel the lash-hugging wand glide through each lash to avoid clumping, and keep your mascara put with the water and sweat resistant formula. This vegan, cruelty-free, ethical and sustainable mascara comes in a recyclable tube and encased in compostable bamboo.


Start at the base of your lashes and swipe through with the mascara brush. Go from one eye to the other building your desired volume.


Sustainable bamboo tube with recyclable plastic inlay. Our bamboo comes from China, where we work closely with a green certified, fair trade manufacturer. All our bamboo is water processed, not chemically treated.


Use strong pliers to crush bamboo casing of off inner tube and compost. Inner tube can be thoroughly washed and
recycled (using the wand to help scrub the tube is a great way to ensure that it is properly cleaned).

    Love this mascara! Goes on beautifully, feels good and doesn’t cake. Lashes look great! And love that you can crush the casing and it will compost.

    A beautiful product! Goes on smoothly, makes lashes look full and healthy. Over the years I have tried numerous mascaras due to eye sensitivity and was only able to use 1. I was sceptical when Nikki suggested this one and could hardly believe it when I had absolutely no eye issues from it. A quality product that I would recommend to everyone and have given as gifts.

    It’s called Essential mascara for a reason. This is my go-to and I plan to continue buying until I no longer feel like wearing mascara

    This is the ONLY mascara I can wear! I actually had to go without makeup before I discovered Elate, because of constant eye infections. I discovered that this was because most mascaras destroy the natural flora in the eyelashes. Elate mascara leaves me with soft lashes with no clumping. It wears well ALL day and, along with Elate eye shadows, allows me to once again enjoy wearing eye makeup.

What’s the best product for acne?

Acne is one of the most profitable categories in the beauty industry. It’s no wonder since it affects us emotionally and impacts our confidence. Acne has become a blanket word that covers everything from monthly cycle breakouts to cystic and even folliculitis. Choosing the right product is only a small percentage of getting on track to healthier skin. We want to support you with healthy practices that remove products that “attack” your acne and guide you into healing your skin. A conversation with us can eliminate trial and error shopping and navigate you into the right products to support your specific skin concerns.

My skin is really dry, should I use hyaluronic acid?

“Dry” is a bit of a tricky word. We like to get more specific about symptoms to help our clients determine what support the skin needs.  Hyaluronic acid is great for attracting water to the more surface layers of the skin. This can feel AND look really great. However, if your skin is deeply dehydrated, it can pull water from the dermis making the symptoms of dehydration worsen. We ALWAYS recommend having a consultation to help you determine the right practices and products for your concerns.

Is Vitamin C the best for anti aging?

We are definitely pro aging, and we like to help our clients on the road to vitality through practices that ensure out skin has its best chances of staying healthy and dense into our high double digit years. Vitamin C is an incredible tool for defending our skin from free radicals, collagen support, and evening out pigmentation concerns. VItamin C options are DEFINITELY NOT one size fits all. We would love to ask you a few questions to determine which best fits your concerns and lifestyle needs.

How often should you refresh your mascara?

We recommend every 3 – 6 months. Keeping eyes healthy includes making sure your eye makeup isn’t full of bacteria. Please replace mascara IMMEDIATELY if you get any eye infections including pink eye or styes.
