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.
I was able to preview one of the matte lipsticks called Catoure, a reddish brown mauve (my description). Well if first impressions count, this one is a winner in my books.
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.
