This girl loves a good matte lipstick. I know not everyone is on the same page as me, though. A lot of people hate the dryness that usually comes along with matte lipsticks, and I don't blame them! So when I heard Covergirl had partnered with Katy Perry to create Katy Kat Matte, a collection of highly pigmented and moisturizing demi-matte lipsticks, I thought "I need to give these a try"! Maybe they'll be the perfect solution for those who don't like the dryness of regular matte lipsticks.
I think they really nailed it on this formula. I tried the shades Coral Cat and Magenta Minx, and they have a slightly less mattifying texture when compared to my other matte lipsticks, which means my lips were left far more moisturized than usual. I was relieved that the matte texture wasn't abandoned completely though. They are still far more matte than any of my satin lipsticks.
While there are also some more crazy colours in the collection, like Perry Panther (black) and Cosmo Kitty (purple), I am totally in love with Coral Kat and Magenta Minx. They're the perfect pink and orange shades to go with my summer outfits. You know I'm all about bright pops of colour this time of year!
What do you think? Would these make you want to give matte lipsticks a try? You can find them at drugstores in North America, including London Drugs!
