CoverGirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick Review

I’m still on the search for the perfect matte lipstick so I decided to try out the CoverGirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick which is the Katy Perry branded line. I picked up the Coral Cat shade for Summer and I had mixed results.

What’s to love (and what’s a bit meh)?

This is definitely a demi-matte which for me is really more of a cream. While the finish leans a bit more towards matte I would say it looks and feels more creamy. I didn’t have any drying issues.

I think this is a nice drugstore pick although it is priced a bit high at $8.99 (unless you can find a sale). The lipstick itself feels on the harder side for me. It didn’t quite glide on like a high-end brand, however once I had the product entirely on my lips it looked nice. I had to use about 3 coats to get full coverage. The color did fade after eating and had to reapply about 2-3 times during the course of my day.

The lipstick does have a very faint perfume scent that I didn’t hate, but it just wasn’t my cup of tea.

The packaging is cute with a black and white case and a color-coded bottom with cat ears above the shade name. I picked the Coral Cat shade because I thought it would be pretty for Summer. I think the color is a beautiful bright coral that did make my lips pop.

Overall I’m not sure I’d get another one of these unless they were on sale. The Pink Paws shade looks very pretty.

  1. I was going to buy one of these last night but decided to hold off and get something else instead!

  2. CoverGirl & I don’t get along well for the most part. Have you tried the Maybelline or Milani mate lipsticks? Those are really nice and very comfortable.

  3. Great post! Love your honest review.
