I took a little time off for the Easter holidays but now I’m back at it and ready to bring you more swatches. This week I have the rest of the shades from Elate Cosmetics lipstick. Other than the clean, vegan formula, I’ve some seriously beautiful colours from this range, some of which I’m thinking of adding to my collection!
Elate do has some other colours on sold through their site, so let me know in the comments if you’d like to see them.
You can find my other favourites, Vivacious and Blaze here:
Bloom, Chance, Blush, Adore, Wild & Demure
Even though it’s a light, baby pink it’s perfectly wearable for a medium skin tone. It’s stays as a medium opacity, and feels a little glossy. I can imagine wearing this if I were looking for that youthful, flirty look.
I absolutely love this rose gold toned pink on me! I just wish that it didn’t have such strong gold microshimmer, as it’s a tad chunky. Perfect, perfect shade if it weren’t for the shimmer.
This mid-toned pink really shows it’s mauve undertones on me. Not always my favourite shade, but perfect for someone who wants a balanced pink with a little twist.
A touch more violet makes this lean much more mauve on my lips. Again I’m not a huge fan of purple tones, though Vivacious from Elate Cosmetics has been my favourite so far.
On the official Elate Cosmetics website they describe this as a punchy pink with a hint of purple but if you’re seeing what I’m seeing, I’m not so sure! This is straight up purple with pink undertones on me, especially after it wears away. Out of the ones I tried today it’s one of the few that stain.
Another deep burgandy that works better if you have freshly scrubbed lips and you blot it down to a stain. While it’s similar to Tantric, this has a slightly brown undertone I think. Either way you wear it, it does stain so another long lasting lip colour if you need it to last all day.
