I love discovering new brands, so when Teeez Cosmetics contacted me to try a few items from their Fashion Vendetta collection, I couldn't pass up the opportunity! Available at The Bay, this collection contains six To Die For eyeshadow quads, ten Material Girl lipsticks, ten Read my Lips lipsticks, eight Serial lip stains, three Style Addict highlighters and three Bulletproof mascaras.

To Die For Eyeshadow Quad in Cinnamon Revolution ($48 CAD for 6g)
This eyeshadow quad features 3 matte shades (light beige, medium brown and deep chocolate brown) and a shimmery golden peach. The matte shades have great color payoff, but the shimmery peach is quite sheer.
The formula blends seamlessly and I love the velvety finish! The staying power is top notch too! I just wish the shimmery eyeshadow was as pigmented as the matte shades.
Serial Lip Stain in Faux Pas ($28 CAD for 6ml)
Faux Pas is a gorgeous muted plum but I don't like the formula. It makes my lips look super wrinkly and feels very drying. This liquid lipstick is very pigmented and has incredible staying power, but it looks awful on my lips. I don't like it!
Lise Watier Baiser Velours Liquid Lipstick in Swan Kiss is less purple, warmer. Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Androgyny is a bit more grey, cooler. Make up For Ever Artist Rouge Creme in C211 is much lighter, the finish is more glossy.
Read My Lips Lipstick in Dare Devil ($26 CAD for 4g)
Now this is a lipstick I like, it's a lot more comfortable on the lips than the Serial Lip Stain! The finish is semi-matte and it's not transfer proof, but it doesn't dry out my lips.
Dare Devil is a burnt orange red, I couldn't find anything similar in my collection! The formula is smooth and creamy, it feels weightless on the lips. Oh and it has great color payoff too!
Shiseido Rouge Rouge lipstick in RD502 Real Ruby is cooler. Shiseido Rouge Rouge lipstick in RD308 Toffee Apple is cooler and brighter. Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Creme in C406 is darker and cooler. MAC Matte Lipstick in So Chaud is lighter, brighter and warmer.
Style Addict Highlighter in Berlin Sunrise ($32 CAD for 13ml)
I really wanted to love this highlighter because the color (a light gold) and finish are gorgeous! Unfortunately, the formula is too thick and it dries too fast.
I can only apply it with a Beautyblender, otherwhise it looks patchy and makes my skin look crepey.
I would buy more shades in a heart beat if it was more creamy and easier to apply.
Material Girl Lipstick in Exclusive Rouge ($29 CAD for 4.5g)
This lipstick has great color payoff and feels comfortable on the lips. The consistency is very creamy without being too oily. Love it!
That being said it has a strong sweet smell so I suggest to smell it in store before purchasing it, especially if you are sensitive to scents.
Shiseido Rouge Rouge lipstick in RD502 Real Ruby is darker. Shiseido Rouge Rouge lipstick in RD306 Liaison is brighter and slightly lighter. NYC Get It All Lip Color in IncREDdible is much darker and cooler.
