I FOUND THEM // Katy Kat Mattes

It’s fair to say that I am a Katy Perry enthusiast – I consume everything she creates immediately, often & with great enthusiasm. I got to see her on her Prismatic World Tour and it was the perfect blend of actually amazing singing, humor, sass & entertainment. I knew she had been a part of the CoverGirl family for a little while now but she hadn’t put her name on anything until now – a collection of lipsticks called Katy Kat mattes. Naturally, I started hunting for them the second I knew they were in existence and after a few weeks of searching my dreams came true. I came home right after finding them and filmed this. Unfortunately I don’t have an endless supply of makeup money so I was only able to pick up three shades this trip but I plan on expanding the collection.

I was able to get my hands on Coral Cat, Kitty Purry and Perry Panther. After wearing the two more wearbale shades I do have some observations. Kitty Purry, the muted purple shade, is the most matte of the three I grabbed. It dries down nicely and doesn’t feel terribly drying. Coral Cat is forever creamy on the lips, though it does appear matte after some wear time. Perry Panther hasn’t occupied my lips much given that I work a full time job where a black lip doesn’t really fit in with the aesthetic., but I did find that it was a VERY easy dark shade to work with – it is opaque without being patchy and glided easily over my lips. So far so good!

The Most Dangerous Game – Target Edition

After work today I went to Target. When my boyfriend got home from work, we went back to Target. Guess what I did each time? That’s right, lost any bit of willpower I had & made some purchases. Of course I took my time perusing the aisles while boyfriend did secret anniversary shopping and of course I Googled swatches and reviews, trying to talk myself out of each item but in the end, I lost. But let’s be real, I also won. The only real justifications for a couple of these things is that a) my gel liner really is drying out & is becoming ancient and b) I was picking up a couple items for a tutorial. The rest were impulse buys because hey, who doesn’t want glowy skin and cheeks?! I need all the help I can get this winter! I’m hoping to have the tutorial up by the end of the week, can anyone guess which celebrity look I’ll be doing?

Revlon Photoready Makeup – 003 Shell

This foundation promises a glowy finish that is supposed to look flawless on camera. When compared to the Colorstay people say the Photoready is a bit dewier while the Colorstay is more matte. In the winter months I think a dewy finish will make my dry skin look and feel a lot happier.

Maybelline Hi-Light Highlighting Blush – Pink Rose

I recently saw one of my favorite YouTubers, Makeup by Alli, Instagram a photo of this product & she said it gives a gorgeous glow to the cheeks. I hope you can sense the theme I had going with my skin purchases! I trust her opinion so I had to give one of these things a shot. The pattern intrigues me and you can never go wrong with rose shades.

Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner – Blackest Black

This product is a staple in my collection & like I said before, the one I had is past it’s prime & is drying up on me so I had to grab a new pot.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – Black Cherry

This is a shade that is a bit of a holy grail dark lip for tons of people in the beauty community & today it just felt right for me to pick it up. It is a gorgeous deep reddish plum color. See the swatch below!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick – Bordeaux

I purchased this shade with a particular tutorial in mind. It is very similar to Black Cherry. The true test will be in how well each lipstick lasts on the lips and how even the color applies. See the swatch below!

Maybelline “The Elixir” – 050 Caviar Couture

As you can see, I have a theme going with the lips as well. I have been wanting to get my paws on these new Elixirs & based on a quick swatch, I am really digging how shiny this product is. Can’t wait to put it on my pout!
