Katy Perry is definitely one to experiment with her looks, whether it’s her outfit, her hair color, her makeup, or wearing a Tamagotchi to the Met Gala. So when we got word she was collaborating with CoverGirl on a makeup line, we knew it wouldn’t fail to disappoint. The Katy Kat Collection is everything we could ever dream of—aka crazy colored lipsticks and mascaras at super affordable prices.
Those of us who are fond of a good matte lipstick, know that they are hard to come by. The more matte they are, the more prone they are to cracking and drying our lips out. However, Perry and CoverGirl worked together to come up with a demi-matte formula, bringing us lip color that is highly pigmented and matte, with moisture and minimal sheen. Through the combination of finely milled mica and super moisturizing waxes, the lipsticks go on smooth with the perfect texture.
The collection is comprised of thirteen shades of Katy Kat Matte lipsticks total—from black to lilac—with very Katy Perry names, such as "Kitty Purry" and "Maroon Meow." And this stuff really stays put—no cracking, no bleeding, no fuss.
In addition to lip color, Perry has also come up with a long-lasting mascara: the Katy Kat Eye. The mascaras come in shades of black, a waterproof black, very black, and—wait for it—“Perry Blue,” a gorgeous, vibrant blue that you would expect to see on the pop star herself.
The best part about the line? Everything is under $10. Both the lipsticks and mascaras will retail between $6.99 and $8.99.
The Katy Kat Collection launches this July in drugstores, and at food and e-commerce retailers. Until then, click through the gallery to take a closer look at the collection.
