Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in Catoure: Preview and First Impressions

Celebrity and makeup brand collaborations are becoming the norm it seems, and the majority of the time, I couldn’t care less. But this one from Covergirl and Katy Perry peaked my interest. Why? Well, truth be told. I’m a secret Katy Perry fan girl, err, fan woman (Who am I kidding? I’m no girl anymore ;-)) And this collaboration includes a lot of lipsticks, which as you know is my thing. So of course, I wanted to know more.

Available in May 2016, the Covergirl Katy Kat Collection includes 11 demi-matte lipsticks (even black!), plus a new mascara – in blue and black.

It’s very creamy to apply, highly pigmented and it really is a demi-matte finish. Lips look and feel hydrated yet you get the pigmentation and coverage of a matte lipstick. And this colour? What can I say, I’ve really been into these types of colours lately so when I first saw the tube, I felt a teeny bit giddy. It’s reddish but not an in your face red. It’s got enough brown and mauvy tones in it that makes it perfect for every day. It’s a my lip but better colour with more oomph.

I am looking forward to seeing the other colours from this collection, and who knows I may even pick up another one…or two…or three.

What do you think of makeup brand and celebrity collaborations?

    The color looks great on you and your review is helping change my mind about this product line a bit…the packaging and branding seems a bit juvenile to me, but I guess that’s the demographic, right? We’ll see when they’re out in the stores! Thanks 🙂

      Hey Shannon, thank you! I might not be the target demographic either but I do enjoy a good lipstick. I’m hoping the rest of the lipsticks are of the same quality as this colour!
