Drugstore Buy of the Week - COVERGIRL Katy Kat Matte Lipstick

Katy Perry has teamed up with CoverGirl for a fun new makeup collection that perfect for matte lipstick lovers (but even if you previously haven't been, you'll still like them).

COVERGIRL Katy Kat Matte Lipstick has all the cat-loving references that Katy Perry fans have come to expect.  The lipstick names are all cat related and the special, limited edition white packaging is perfect for summer.  Even better, this lipstick formulation is a CoverGirl breakthrough.  It's a demi-matte that's comfortable, non-drying and creamy in texture.

There are 13 shades (2 more coming in July to join the first 11 shades) in the COVERGIRL Katy Kat Matte Lipstick collection.  The special lipstick tube design features a Katy Perry Loves Covergirl logo on the side and tiny cat print ears above the shade name on the bottom of the tube. 

There are lots of great shades, including an edgy black, called Perry Panther, but my favorite was Catoure (Shown, above. It'a little deeper than it appears in the shade collection swatch photo below), and has plum undertones.  It's a nice neutral that's not quite a "nude" or brown/pink, so I liked adding it to my daytime lipstick rotation.  The lipsticks also smell really good - a vanilla-blend that's not overly sweet or cloying.

The color and long wear were also very impressive.  I got about 5-6 hours of wear before I needed a touch up  The lipstick didn't dry out my lips at all and it felt lightweight and creamy all day.  The formula is made with shea, aloe and avocado butter, which provides that smooth, easy feel on the lips.  They didn't drag when I applied them or cling to drier areas of my lips.

These Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks will be gone soon...so order yours now! - RLB
