My Review of the Elate Cosmetics Essential Mascara

 
 
 
 

SCORECARD:

  • How do the ingredients look? See below

  • Clumping: 5/5

  • Volumizing: 3/5

  • Lengthening: 3/5

  • No flaking or smudging: 5/5

  • Non-irritating: 5/5

  • Cruelty-free & sustainably packaged: 4/5

T O T A L S C O R E : 25/30

 

PROS:

  • No clumps for me. Success!

  • I saw an impact on both length and volume, but the look remained natural which could be a pro for some. You can build it up a bit…

  • This formula didn’t flake on me or smudge throughout the day. Plus it’s great for sensitive eyes.

  • I did find it to hold a curl for my lashes but I have a natural curl. The lash curler did help.

  • The brand goes above and beyond when it comes to sustainability.

CONS:

  • Tough to say! This isn’t your glam, high-impact mascara if that’s what you’re on the hunt for.

 

INGREDIENTS SCAN:

  • There was only one ingredient that stood out for being above a ‘3’ on EWG.org and that was Sodium Hydroxide (3-4). Overall, the ingredients looked great here!

FINAL VERDICT: To buy, or not to buy?

  • YOU’LL LIKE IT IF: you’re looking for a sustainably-packaged mascara with solid impact and a not-too-heavy look.

  • YOU’LL WANT TO PASS IF: you’re interested in a thicker formula for your lashes and are always going for a full-glam effect (keep in mind, a swipe of primer could really give this a boost)!

  • ME? WOULD I BUY IT AGAIN?- Yes, no hesitation. I’m a fan of this mascara and the brand in general.
