With her new platinum hair and oh-so catchy hit “Chained to the Rhythm,” Katy Perry is back in a big way. To keep the momentum going, the star is also adding a slew of new products to her CoverGirl makeup line.
The limited-edition Katy Kat Pearl Collection takes its inspiration from mermaids, with shimmery finishes and vivid colours. The range officially launches in April, but did pop up online briefly after the GRAMMYs, where Katy first debuted the collection.
You might remember that Katy insisted on bringing a black shade to her original Katy Kat Matte Lipstick line—something that, at the time, was rarely seen in drugstores. Now, she’s pushing the limits again with her new Katy Kat Pearl Lipsticks, which each have a pearlescent finish.
There’s a poppy red (REDdy to Pounce), sweet pink (Purrty in Pink), and pale peach (Apricat), but the standout hue is the unexpected aqua Blue-tiful Kitty. Just in case you thought it might be one of those illusionary lipsticks that look colourful in the tube but goes on with a pink tint… NOPE. This lipstick is BLUE, girl. Sure, it might not be for everyday, but with holographic highlighters everywhere right now, why not play with the trend on lips too?
The collection also features four Katy Kat Eye Eyeliner hues, each with a smudger on one for an optional smoky eye effect. The cleverly named Purrmaid is a stunning seafoam green, while WhisPURR is a matte white that can double as an eye-brightener when worn along your waterlines.
We don’t have these ones to swatch, but on the more traditional side is Midnight Matte (black) and Kitty Katabra (shimmery grey-black). The pencils glide on smoothly for super comfortable wear.
There are also two multi-purpose pots called Katy Kat Pearl Shadow + Highlighter. Inside are shimmery creams that you can either swipe across your eyelids or along the high planes of your face (or both for a coordinated, monochromatic look).Tiger’s Eye is a light gold, and Tiger Rose is a soft rose gold.
Unfortunately, we don’t have the latter to swatch, but you can see what it looks like on Katy herself—the star wore the pink shimmer for her amazing GRAMMYs performance.
The Katy Kat Pearl Collection will officially launch in April (but we’ve spotted in at Shoppers Drug Mart IRL already)..shop this Story
