Happy Wednesday everyone. Today I’m going to share my recent budget friendly find, items from the new Katy Perry X Covergirl collaboration (Katy Kat Collection).
There are 11 shades in the Katy Kat Matte Lipstick collection and 3 shades in the Katy Kat Eye Mascara. I grabbed one of each, the Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in Catoure and the Eye Mascara in Perry Blue.
I was excited to give these a try and had high hopes for them, especially the Perry Blue mascara. After giving this one a try, I fell in love with the color and I’m currently trying to hunt down other formulas and colors that will show up on my dark brown eyelashes.
The Kate Kat Matte Lipstick in Catoure is a taupe muted plum . It almost swatches like a dark nude on my pigmented lips. The formula is a matte but isn’t drying on the lips. I can pull this one off without applying a primer or balm beforehand and my lips won’t feel super dry. For the price, results and color I give this a thumbs up.
On the other hand, the Katy Kat Eye Mascara in Perry Blue was a huge let down for a number of reasons. First, the color doesn’t show up even under direct sunlight. And I also tried applying primer the second time I tested it out to give it a boost and almost nothing showed up. Second, it doesn’t perform well as a mascara either. No volume, no separation and barely any curl.
Overall, I give the Kate Kat Collection from Covergirl one thumb up. The Matte Lipstick is a winner while the mascara is a no go. The collection is currently available at drugstores and online.
Have any of you tried the Katy Kat Collection from Covergirl? What are your thoughts?
