Teeez: Glitter Gossip Lash & Liner Review



The Teeez Glitter Gossip Lash & Liners are a real feast for the eyes. I'm tempted to simply shut up and leave you to take in the visuals of these fancy glittery thingies. And as with all things glittery, we seriously need huge close-up shots.

But of course, I will tell you more.

First, here's what Teeez says (excerpts):

........applies a high concentration of micro glitter particles in one stroke, for an immediate shimmer sensation. The unique packaging combines glitter eyeliner and glitter mascara in one single product........The innovative two-in-one packaging has a unique silicon eyeliner brush with a conical shape that applies a sharp line, the brush with micro grooves applies the perfect amount of glitter on your lashes each time you use it. Quick drying and long lasting without losing glitters.

Ingredients:
Water, triethanolamine, glycerin, acrylates copolymer, propylene glycol, polyvinyl alcohol, carbomer, ethylparaben, methylparaben, propylparaben, phenoxyethanol, butylparaben, polyethylene terephthalate


The three Glitter Gossip Lash & Liner shades that Teeez kindly sent were:

L-R:
At the Park - predominantly neon green and yellow glitters
Take a Taxi - black glitters mixed with specks of green, blue, turqoise, yellow, orange
Ready to Party - silver glitters with specks of blue, pink/lilac


So basically, it's a two-in-one eye product that deposits colourful glitter on your eyelids and on your lashes, and it does it with this bizarre-looking applicator.


Hmm, these applicators remind me of two things: A. Alien tentacles. B. Cactus. I can't decide which one.


Whatever it is, it serves its purpose. The sharp, stiff tip works well enough to line the eyes. The spines bristles are also stiff and fairly sparse, which is fine by me. I really wouldn't want it depositing way too much glitter on my lashes.

The liquid product itself does take quite a while to dry, so in my case (i.e. inward-folding lids), I'd have to be very careful not to open my eyes until the lining is completely dry. I've had some messy mishaps where I opened my eyes too early and the still-wet liner transfered glitter to other parts of my lid. Yikes!

Also, this liner isn't waterproof. On one hand, it's easy to wash off but on the other hand, some glitter would transfer after some time. You'd have lower chances of that happening though if you didn't have my kind of eyelids.

Here are two eye looks using these Glitter Gossip Lash & Liners. For eyeshadows, I used the awesome Catrice Big City Life - The Berlin Collection palette.


At the Park

Other products used:
Catrice Big City Life - The Berlin Collection - am Alex and Ku'damm
GOSH Velvet Touch Eye Liner - Truly Brown
Catrice Lashes to Kill Mascara - Black Green


Take a Taxi together with Ready to Party

Other products used:
Catrice Big City Life - The Berlin Collection - Tiergarten
GOSH Velvet Touch Eye Liner - Black Ink
Catrice Lashes to Kill Mascara - Black Green

In this second eye look, I lined the lashline first with the black Take a Taxi and extended it a bit, waited for it to dry and then drew a short line above it with the silver Ready to Party. As you can see in both looks, I went very, very easy with the glitters on the lashes.

The Glitter Gossip Lash & Liner belongs to the Teeez City Trip collection and is available in 10 shades, of which 3 are neons. Price: €4.79

Also from the City Trip collection:
Teeez Love Triangle Lipsticks
