I’ve always been a fan of Katy Perry. When I had found out she had a new collection of lipsticks with CoverGirl, I knew I had to check it out. After looking at the fun and different shades in the collection, I was excited in trying them out myself. Here are my final thoughts on the products I picked up.
The collection includes 11 “matte” lipsticks in a matte black and white packaging. The shades include: Crimson Cat (red), Pink Paws (soft pink), Sphynx (nude pink), Cat Call (pink), Catoure (rosey pink), Kitty Purry (mauve), Cosmo Kitty (lavender/purple), Coral Cat (coral), Magenta Minx (bright pink), Maroon Meow (deep wine) & Perry Panther (black).
Can we talk about how cute and well thought out the packaging is? I love love love the packaging! It’s sleek and you can totally tell it’s by Katy Perry. The only con about it is that it clings on to makeup/smudge real easily. So if you throw this in your makeup back, it will not stay pretty.
The two I picked up were Perry Panther and Maroon Meow. I love the texture of this lipstick. It’s very smooth and creamy, and glides effortlessly on to your lips. It does not dry your lips out and is surprisingly comfortable to wear throughout the day.
What I didn’t like…the lipstick is on the sheer side. If you want that BAM pigmentation, you’re going to have to layer the color on. You can tell by the swatches that this is no where near a matte finish. That was such a bummer. If the packaging has the word “MATTE” on it, you’d assume the finish is matte. CoverGirl states on their website that this has a “demi-matte” finish, but that’s also misleading. When you apply it onto your lips, it clearly has a more satin finish to it.
A few other things I am not a fan of: it’s not long lasting, transfers easily, and you need to keep touching up to keep the color. Maroon Meow looks very patchy when you apply it onto the lips, but Perry Panther’s formula is better.
If I could pick another shade, I would probably choose an everyday nude or pink lipstick. Something that I can easily throw on and not worry about pigmentation.
Have you tried these yet? What are your thoughts?
