Katy Perry has some beautiful products in her CoverGirl line and her limited edition Katy Kat Pearl collection for spring won’t be around much longer! Every item costs under $10 so if you find something you love snap it up now. Coty sent me some samples of a few products and my oldest daughter was happy to model them for me (she has MUCH nicer lips than I do!). This spring is all about shimmers and pastels, trends that work right into summer. Here’s what I was sent to test:
Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter ($8.99): This is available in Tiger’s Eye and Tiger Rose. My shade is Tiger’s Eye. This has an interesting texture that is bouncy and gel-like. You use your fingers to apply, so to avoid bacterial contamination scoop some out onto a steel palette then pat it on with fingertips. The soft, spongy gel dries down quickly into a sheer shimmer that is very pretty as an eyeshadow or a cheek highlighter. I think this is a product for younger faces…those of us with a few wrinkles won’t do well with the creamy texture and the amount of shimmer, but those in their teens and twenties will love it.
Covergirl Katy Kat Eyeliner ($6.99): This is available in Kitty WhisPURR (silver) and Purrmaid (green). I have Purrmaid, a beautiful shimmery teal green. This pencil eyeliner is different from others because it’s easy like a pencil liner, but it has the intensity of a liquid liner. It also lasts all day – a good eight hours for sure. It has this really neat-o smudge tip – I have to admit, I use it with all of my pencil liners, not just this one!
Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl Lipstick ($8.99): This is available in four shades – Blue-tiful Kitty; Apricat; Purrty in Pink; REDdy to Pounce. I have Blue-tiful Kitty and Apricat.
So let’s start with Blue-tiful Kitty.
This was the major reason I asked my daughter to model for me. She has better lips, and there is NO way I can get away with blue lips. Trust me, when I am three breaths away from kicking the bucket I’ll be putting on some pink lip gloss. So, we went full-on blue for a photo, but I don’t think it’s the best way to wear this lipstick at any age.
I actually think it’s sublime when paired with Apricat, which I’ll show you in a minute.
Here is full on Apricat, which is a really exquisite shimmery apricot. This is soft, pretty, shiny, and hydrating. The price point is fantastic and if you only buy one thing from this collection, I would recommend this fabulous lippie. Now, check it out with some Blue-tiful on the inner portion of the lips, blended outward:
So pretty, right?? I love it!! The more I play with these products and shades the more I love them. The Katy Kat Pearl limited edition spring collection won’t be around much longer, so be sure pick some up at the drugstore or Ulta when you are out. Once again, Katy Perry doesn’t disappoint! – Lisa
