Covergirl: Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in Sphynx and Katy Kat Eye Mascara in Very Black, Swatch & Review

Covergirl and Katy Perry introduce their brand new collaboration including #KatyKatMatte Demi-Matte Lipsticks, as well as #KatyKatEye 360° All-Day Cat Eye Mascaras!

I was so happy to get the opportunity to try Katy Perry's new makeup line with Covergirl through BzzAgent.

This collection contains Covergirl's first Demi Matte lipstick and it comes in 11 gorgeous shades. The lipsticks are infused with nourishing butters like Shea, are creamy, and non-drying.

The Katy Kat Eye Mascara comes in Perry Blue, Very Black, Black, and Waterproof Black. The 360 degree brush gives 10X volume and darkness to the lashes in a formula that doesn't flake, smudge, or smear.

I was able to select the colours that I wanted to try. I chose Very Black in the Katy Kat Eye Mascara, and Sphynx/ Sphinx in the Katy Kat Matte lipstick.

Right away I was intrigued by the interesting looking mascara wand. And, I was very happy with my colour selection in the lipstick as it's that nude-pink/ mauve shade that I just love!

As you can see in the lipstick swatch, it's not totally matte, hence the term Demi-matte for these beauties.

Although this lipstick will glide on my lips smoothly without a balm, because of the condition of my lips I really need a balm underneath, which Covergirl recommends also. I also followed Covergirl's instructions to layer the lipstick, blot, and then layer again... it really works to give a great look to your pout!

This is one of the few matte lipsticks that I can actually wear. Because of my aging and dehydrated lips most matte lipsticks just accentuate the dehydration and make me look older. As you'll see in the photos below with the lip swatches, this formula doesn't accentuate my dehydrated lips.

Note, I did not use any lip liners or gloss in any of the photos.

I think this is a pretty universal shade and would suit a lot of skin tones. It's not a pale nude, so it wont give you that washed out look. I would say it's on the mauve side of nudes.

The mascara grabs every lash and gave me CRAZY volume! I totally agree with the claims that this mascara gives 10x volume, and I didn't even have to build this up. I applied it the same way that I apply any mascara on a daily basis.

If you like crazy volume lashes, you will love this!

At the end of the day, I checked for flakes or smudges and found none.

Katy Kat Matte Demi Matte Lipstick in Sphinx
Pictured above, I am wearing Katy Kat Matte in Sphynx with no lipliner or gloss, just the lipstick with a balm underneath. I am loving this colour. It's perfect for everyday and goes with any look.

It's also super comfortable on the lips and longer lasting than your average lipstick. (Note: I am not wearing the Katy Kat Mascara in this photo).

  1. What a pretty shade Sphynx is! I love mauvey nudes like that too. I almost picked up this mascara to try. I kind of want to try the blue, but I think it's a bright blue, and not navy which I had hoped. I might give it a try when I'm out of other mascara samples!

    1. I really love both of these products. If you like HUGE lashes, I think you will like this one. I was really surprised by it. xo
