COVERGIRL x Katy Perry – Demi Matte Lipstick Collection
Back in March, I was invited to attended the Toronto launch of the Covergirl x Katy Perry lipstick collection! Matte lipsticks are all the rage these days, however many women find that mattes can be incredibly drying! Covergirl’s demi-matte lipstick range claims to offer the coveted matte lip look whilst retaining moisture within a creamy and moisturizing formula.
A wonderful little box full of goodies arrived at my door containing the full set of Katy Perry’s collaboration with the brand. This collection contains 11 demi-matte lipsticks and two mascaras. Keep reading to see swatches of the entire line, as well as my review of the colours and formula!
The Katy Kat Lipstick Colour Selection
I absolutely love the fact that this collection is cat themed! Katy Perry is a fellow cat lady, therefore all the shade names are cat puns. (Katy Kat, get it?)
Calling all Katy Kats! Our new Katy Kat Demi-Matte Lipstick is a purr-fect collection of velvety soft and luscious-feeling lipsticks with a demi-matte finish created by the one-and-only Katy Perry. With 11 shades in all, discover a new matte lip look you’ll love that’s not flat or dry.
The Katy Cat collection has 11 shades:
- Sphynx – neutral medium nude
- Coral Cat – bright orange-pink coral
- Pink Paws – light pink
- Magenta Minx – bright hot pink
- Cat Call – bright fuschia pink
- Kitty Purry – soft lilac purple
- Cosmo Kitty- vibrant red-toned purple
- Catoure – brown-toned mauve
- Crimson Cat – classic deep red
- Maroon Meow – cool deep berry
- Perry Panther – blue-toned black
I love the little cat headband design at the bottom of the lipsticks for the shade name! It goes along nicely with Katy Perry’s fun and quirky brand.
Swatches + Formula Overview
I would describe the texture of the lipstick as a “moisturizing matte”, or as Covergirl describes it, a “demi-matte.” It has a semi-matte texture when applied to the lips, but when you rub them together you can feel a creamy texture. Because of the matte nature of this line, I found it has a longer staying power than regular creamy lipsticks.
