Matte lipsticks are one of my favorite formulas, they are long lasting and look great. One day at Target I saw the Covergirl display of the Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks and decided to check them out.
Covergirl Katy Kat Matte lipsticks are a collaboration with Katy Perry. There are 11 lipstick shades and though the packing states a matte formula, Covergirl states that they are demi-matte.
Katy Kat 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. ~Covergirl
Let’s chat about the formula, I would agree they are more demi-matte. Demi-matte lipsticks don’t have a shine but they are soft and move around more than a matte formula that is dry and stays in place. Wearing the Katy Kat Matte lipsticks I found that they were moisturizing I definitely needed a lip liner to help them stay in place as they are a soft formula. They can easily rub off so it’s definitely necessary to reapply as needed.
The color payoff is well pigmented and really doesn’t require a series of application, of course, if you want to add more to make your lips pop you definitely could.
The regular retail price of the lipsticks is between $7 – $8 which makes them super inexpensive.
Of the 11 shades I picked up some fun colors:
The packaging on these seriously caught my attention they are minimal yet fun. I will be trying other shades from the collection.
