Katy Perry's collaboration with Covergirl is here..?
I was actually quite shocked seeing these in my local Walmart, considering a bunch of people in the US have been pre-ordering these which are set to be shipped out May 15th. It could be that they're slowly rolling them out, because there were only 1-2 of each shade on the display I saw. Or maybe I just got lucky and someone made a mistake and put them out too early. Either way, I'm super excited to share with you my thoughts on the Covergirl Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks.
The Covergirl Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks is a wonderful new collaboration with Katy Perry and Covergirl, featuring gorgeous demi-matte lipsticks and I think also a mascara. Being demi-matte, the lipsticks are suppose to be very comfortable, and have a little sheen.
I absolutely adore the packaging. We have the same shape tubes as the Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks, except we get a gorgeous rubberized matte white lid, and black, simple lettering.
I picked up 3 of the 12 shades, and let me tell you now, I will definitely be picking up more. There's a great variety of shades, from everyday colours to even a black and a purple shade.
I tried to control myself from purchasing all the shades I saw on the display, but I picked up the 3 I would most likely use.
In the store, I thought Sphynx looked more nude, but upon taking these pictures, it comes off as a coral/nude/pink.
Still a super gorgeous colour though.
Catoure is a very pretty brick/berry shade. It's a red shade that definitely isn't over the top or too bright.
Probably my favourite lipstick name, Kitty Purry is a fun, cute, bright pink with purple undertones.
Not the best shade to go with my "tan" but it's still super cute.
Formula wise, these are one of the most comfortable lipsticks I've ever worn. They are NOT matte though, more of a satin finish. I have no idea why it's called matte though! I understand that the description says demi-matte, but for sure there isn't much matte to it, only when you wear it for a long period of time. You can get a great 4-5 hour wear with these without feeling dry at all, and it does stain your lips. Wearing it throughout the day, the satin finish does fade to matte, but you also lose the colour intensity as well. Overall, I love this lipstick. You get such a clean, smooth feeling lipstick that goes matte over time, without drying out your lips. It almost feels like I'm wearing nothing at all! This is probably one of the most comfortable lipsticks I've worn, and I will for sure be picking up more shades!
