Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalate Free

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

As a member of the grass family, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. It requires no irrigation, pesticides or fertilizers to grow, and can be harvested within 3-5 years, as compared to approximately 30+ years for traditional hardwoods. Bamboo is extremely adaptable and produces more oxygen per acre than large tree species, while using a fraction of the water to grow. Its durable and lightweight qualities make bamboo a great alternative for hard wood products!

Whether your going for a simple and polished look or one that's a little more bold, Elate Cosmetic's Liquid EyeLine will get you there. Clean ingredients and a gentle, water-resistant formula works for even the most sensitive eyes, and the silky application gives a smooth and precise appearance.

    My new favorite eyeliner!

    Kasey Kraft (verified owner)

    I love this eyeliner. In the past I’ve either used pencil which wasn’t precise and smudged too easily or your basic drugstore eyeliner which had a hard brush that had a hard time keeping the makeup on the brush. This brush is soft and the eyeliner is long lasting. I also have hooded eyes that normally make my eyeliner smear onto the crease of my eyelid and I don’t have a problem with this one at all. You just have to remember to let it dry!

    My new go-to!

    sleongsuzuki (verified owner)

    I bought mine roughly 2 months ago, and have been using it ever since! I think the color is great, application is smooth, and the case is lovely, all without having to worry about (and in fact loving) it’s sustainability features! My only notes would be, its pretty matte but I’ve noticed an extremely tiny amount of glitter (only really noticeable when I’m looking closely while applying) and that I don’t think this is truly water-proof. I do notice a bit of smudging if I’m wearing on long, warm days, but typically nothing that a one-time run to the bathroom and quick touch up can’t fix. Eyeliner is the only makeup I wear regularly, and I think this will be my go to from now on!

    the balance I was looking for

    3wrightk (verified owner)

    I’ll start by saying I’m not a makeup connoisseur. I prefer natural looks – I only wear a small wing. I’ve spent equal amounts of money on brands that claimed to be “clean” and were recommended by the wedding group The Knot – all gave me allergic reactions (as someone who does NOT have sensitive skin). This brand is my favorite. I can wear it all day every day and never experience issues. I had a learning curve with it – it’s wetter, and has a dry time. If I’m sweating a lot (or god forbid, crying), I will possibly need to reapply but it’s not a deal breaker to me. I’ve had days where both happen and my eyeliner stays intact, too. I’d rather have a higher quality product WITHOUT microplastics and other things I don’t want in my eyes. Another reviewer mentioned it being more gray – I’d agree with this. When the tube is fresh, or if you do two coats, it looks very black. But as I use it up the vibrancy starts to lessen. Again, not a deal breaker to me! Those very black eyeliners are black due to chemicals and dirty ingredients! Also – the company is the greenest I’ve experienced in makeup so far! I recommend looking them up, too!

    Comparable to Drugstore or High-End Eyeliners

    sdellman (verified owner)

    The eyeliner has a brush tip (as opposed to felt tip), and the formula is on the watery side, though once I smeared some on the edge of the tube, I had no issue with the consistency. It is extremely long lasting and wearing, as I did an entire 1hr HIIT workout- sweating all over the place- with no smudging or creasing. I had no trouble removing the eyeliner with my makeup remover. Overall, would definitely recommend and I see myself ONLY purchasing this from now on, replacing my Maybelline or Kat Von D alternatives.

    Great Sustainable Eyeliner

    Lindsey (verified owner)

    Most of the lower starred reviews talk about how wet the eyeliner is, but you just have to let it dry down before doing anything else. It lasts so well and truly is water resistant.

    Very good!

    mccain442 (verified owner)

    I don’t wear a lot of eyeliner but every now and then I do. This stayed put on my face all day including a run after work. It’s fairly easy to use.

    Good stuff!

    LeeAnn McQuade (verified owner)

    I’m quite picky about my eyeliner, I’ve been using a felt tip liner… but thought I’d give this more eco-friendly version a try. The learning curve is small, and maybe just b/c of the transition from precise felt-tip to using a brush, but this stuff STAYS ON! I’m totally on board with this swap.
