I have been seeing the Cover Girl Exclusive Katy Kat Collection being advertised for quite some time now but have yet to see it in stores. I was in Walgreens this weekend and spotted a display ( FINALLY ). I was super excited to try out the Matte Lipstick.
As we all know matte lipstick isn’t exactly the easiest formula to pull off nor is a forgivable formula. Covergirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick, contrary to their name, doesn’t seem to be a full matte finish lipstick but a demi-matte one. This demi-matte finish is considerably creamier than matte formula and has a touch of a sheen plus you’ll find the formula a lot more hydrating.
So if you are a truly Matte Lipstick kind of girl, this will be a bit too creamy for your liking.
Covergirl collaborated with Katy Perry to create 13 shades in the Katy Katy Matte Lipstick Collection. Each lipstick comes in special, limited edition white packaging with Katy Perry ❤ Covergirl printed on the side (if you look at the bottom of the lipsticks there’s also a little cat ear print that embraces the shade name! It’s a rather cute little feature.
Covergirl successfully created a semi-matte finish lipstick that brings you a lighter matte formula that’s wearable, comfortable, and even lightly hydrating. Their demi-matte formula has a velvety, creamy texture that glides across lips like butter. They created the formula with shea, aloe, and avocado butter so you get a really smooth, easy glide with a very lightly hydrating formula. The colors had a smooth, even finish with excellent pigmentation and a solid five-hour wear. They do have some sort of vanilla flavor and fragrance which deserves mentioning for sensitive users.
Weighing in at a price tag at only $8.99. I was incredibly impressed with this formula. Truly it’s one of Covergirl’s best to date. Excellent color, comfortable, long wear, and a lightweight, super creamy, buttery consistency made Covergirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick a joy to apply and wear!
I’d highly recommend checking out a shade or two (or more!).
