Katy Perry and Covergirl have collaborated to create the limited edition Katy Kat collection of makeup that contains lipstick, mascara, eyeliner and highlighter. I’m a pretty huge Katy Perry music fan, so when I had to go into my local drugstore to pick up a few things before my trip to Houston, I decided to splurge a little on the Katy Perry Katy Kat collection. They didn’t have everything – specifically, the highlighter, which I’m still on the hunt for. Other than that though I ended up with an impressive haul.
I don’t know why exactly, but I’m surprised how good the quality of the products is. I shouldn’t be surprised though – how many times have I sworn by Covergirl’s amazing mascaras! Every time I try out a higher end, supposedly all the rage mascara, I come right back to my favorite. Covergirl is definitely my favorite drugstore brand!
The lipsticks smell really nice. I got these two colors, and they go on really nice and creamy.
This red lipstick looks matte, but I put it on top of my usual Carmex lip balm and it was nice and sheer actually. Later, I tried it without the lip balm and it was still more sheer and creamy than matte like it looks in the container.
I got a black and a white eyeliner. I don’t totally know how to wear the white one, but I’ve been using it in the corner of my eye to brighten. The eyeliners have the smudging foam on the back so I just smudge in the white and blend with whatever eye makeup I’ve got going on at the time. The eyeliners can go on bold or fine, depending on whatever look you want.
The mascara is AMAZING. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get it, because I just picked up a Total Tease mascara which is also amazing in case you’re wondering. But I love the brush on the Katy Kat mascara. It sweeps upward and outward at the same time so it goes on so nicely.
Best of all, they are so inexpensive compared to my usual Sephora purchases. I’m still on the lookout for the highlighter and getting a bit impatient… in the meantime, let me know if you’ve tried out the Katy Perry Katy Kat line by Covergirl!
