Teeez Cosmetics Fall/Winter 2016/17 new releases: A quick review

What it is: From the Dutch-based brand Teeez Cosmetics, comes a new collection full of bold lip colours and versatile eyeshadow palettes.

Changing its package design every season, Teeez is on trend with this release thanks to rose-gold metallic accents. Many of these products are paraben-free and all are not tested on animals.

Beauty bonus: The To Die For eyeshadow quad, which is available in six colour offerings, is very pigmented, applying smoothly and with little fall out.

Beauty bummer: The highlighter is in a creamy, liquid formula. It's billed as a primer and/or highlighter, but we found it a little too shimmery as a primer.

Overall: We like the idea that the packaging is ever-changing — it's something that keeps the brand feeling new and different every season.

While we enjoyed the offerings in this range, the winners for us were the eyeshadow quads and mascara. The formulas for both were very nice to work with.

The mascara gave nice volume to lashes due to the silicone, (very!) short bristle applicator, which distributed product evenly onto lashes.

Meanwhile, the eyeshadow palettes had big colour payoff and were easy to blend and build.

The lipstick, while nice to apply with good tone and boasting a non-drying formula, faded a tad quicker than we expected.

Would recommend? The eyeshadow (and now the mascara) are our MVPs of this release.
Price: To Die For eyeshadow quad, $48; Bulletproof Mascara Curling, $32; Style Addict highlighter, $32; Material Girl lipstick, $29.
