Katy Kat Matte
Having a slight #fangirl moment with the release of the new Katy Perry ❤ CoverGirl Collection. It’s safe to say, Katy Perry stole my hair style and it’s also safe to say, that people are over the completely drying, uncomfortable matte lip. So what do you get when you combine a true trendsetter and an iconic makeup brand, a unique collaboration of one-of-a-kind product that’s creative, artistic and backed by beauty science. Katy has never been shy when it comes to her fashion or makeup choices, so it’s no surprise to see some interesting and unique colours in her new collection. This 11 piece demi-matte lipstick collection features anything from your basic nudes to this season’s hottest shades, along with a few fun and unusual shades like black and purple. The entire collection is empowering, feminine and powerful, just like Katy herself.
Katy Perry ❤ CoverGirl Matte Lipstick comes in a chic, square white, matte, limited edition packaging with a little cat ear and the name of the lipstick shade on the bottom of the tube. It features a luscious, velvety, creamy texture that glides across the lips with ease, never pulling or tugging on the skin. It’s formulated with shea butter, aloe and avocado butters to ensure a soft, smooth and hydrating finish. It offers excellent pigmentation, wears for up to 6+ hours and has a sweet cotton-candy scent. It’s as light as a feather once applied, doesn’t bleed or feather outside your natural lip line, doesn’t cling to dry areas, nor does it crack or migrate outside the line throughout the entire day.
Katy was, of course, involved in each shade design and name, she wanted a collection that was effortlessly cool, yet affordable for all. From Cosmo Kitty, a stunning soft lavender to the brand’s first-ever black lipstick called Perry Panther, the collection has a little something for everyone. Sphynx is a sheer nude, Pink Paws is a lovely warm pink, Magenta Minx is an intense fuchsia pink, Coral Cat is stunning light coral-orange, Crimson Cat is sexy, classy, classic true red, Cat Call is beautiful hot pink, Kitty Purry is cool mauve, Cosmo Kitty is a soft lavender, Maroon Meow is a deep, vampy burgundy-wine, Catoure is a gorgeous everyday brown and Perry Panther is an intense black.
Each Katy Perry ❤ CoverGirl Matte Lipstick shade feels incredibly comfortable, is easy to apply and opaque in a swipe or two. It doesn’t feel like your typical matte lipstick, or a demi-matte for that matter. It feels more like a traditional creamy satin lipstick with a shiny, sheen finish. That being said, as it continues to dry throughout the day, it does set to an almost demi-matte finish that never looks flat or dull. As it slowly starts to fade, after the 3 hour mark, it leaves behind somewhat of a beautiful stain. It feels comfortable to wear the entire day and although not necessarily moisturizing, it doesn’t feel dry or caky. I’m obsessed with the formula, the finish and the wear time. I’m not going to lie, I’m kinda over those extremely dry matte lipsticks, so this is a nice change. If you are looking for a matte lipstick, don’t be fooled by the name of the title, these are anything but a matte lipstick.
