Last Wednesday I was a lucky guest of Dave Lackie and Teeez Cosmetics to celebrate their North American Launch!

We started off at the innovative Teeez counter at the Hudson’s Bay store in Downtown Toronto. Their counter allows you to interact with this brand and their makeup in a whole new way. For instance, if you like lipstick but don’t want to remove the one you currently have on, you can simply scan your face at one of their mirror screens and then it will superimpose that lip colour onto you lips so you can see how it will look on. There are other awesome touch screens and fun things to do when there.

Learning about the interactive counter with Paul Van Der Wal, Global Makeup Artist for Teeez Costmetics.

We then moved to the dining area that was incredibly decorated with large flower bouquets and an elegant long table for us all to sit at. Makeup was everywhere! It’s really easy to spot Teeez Cosmetics because their packaging is so funky and colourful.

The great table set up and everyone mingling while playing with Teeez makeup.

We played with all the different lipsticks, eyeliners, blushes and eyeshadows. They were also giving makeup touch-ups. The Teeez team was extremely sweet and really spent time chatting it up with all of the attendees and introduce us to Teeez.

All the beautiful makeup we got to play with

While enjoying our amazing dinner, Dave Lackie and Paul Van Der Wal talked about Teeez and Paul’s amazing journey in fashion and makeup and  becoming the Global Makeup Artist for Teeez.

Now on to the Makeup!

Let’s just start off with the packaging. Teeez, which is based out of the Netherlands, is all about being cutting edge and their packaging screams fashion. Looking at it now I see fun colours, flowers, skulls and stilettos in the print.1475458466340They take their inspiration from the runway and put those looks together into a new collection. As Paul Van Der Wal explained, you no longer need to wait 6-12 months for a runway look to make it to the mainstream, Teeez is all about making it happen now.

The lipsticks are nicely pigmented needing only one swipe to give full coverage. The one I have, Hyped Mauve, smells like chocolate! This brown colour is soo 90s, perfect for this year’s fall trend. The eyeshadow quad has buildable pigmentation so that you can intensify the look to your liking. I love the purple shades which were inspired by Indian fabrics. I am excited to use the grey liner with the shadows and can never go wrong with a black mascara. I do think the colours are super fun and the pigmentation is pretty good. My personal favourite items are their single shadows because they had such amazing pigmentation and were extremely creamy! I’m going to the counter to pick one up the next time I go to the mall.

Thank you, Dave Lackie, for an amazing evening discovering this brand!
