Easter 2017 Beauty Haul From Target

Oh my gosh! I just went to Target and it’s an Easter wonderland. I actually had to sneak past a 6 foot palette of Peeps to snag some of these beauty Easter finds. I have to say that I’m a bit crazy about holiday themes and this stuff was so much fun to buy. I’ve got some great Easter gifts now and a few things for myself.

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.

Covergirl Katy Kat Eye Mascara Review

I got a full sized tube of the Covergirl Katy Kat Eye Mascara in my Target Beauty Box and I was excited to try it, the results however were pretty mixed

The good and the bad…

First I have to say that this product is not a complete disaster as a mascara but there is no way the average human is creating flawless Katy Perry cat eyes with this product.

I got the Black shade and it also comes in Perry Blue and Very Black. The tube is all white with a black font and the tube is huge. It feels much larger than a standard tube.

Oh the wand! I’d say the worst part of this product is the wand. I actually thought it might be defective when I opened the tube. The shape is is like an oval swivel (which is where I think the 360° part comes from) but for me it didn’t work. The mascara was clumped on the wand and looked thick and goopy. I had to brush a good deal of it off before I applied.

After I removed some of the product the application wasn’t too bad but I only used one light coat. I think that more than one coat would have given me clumps. It did however work surprisingly well on my bottom lashes.

Being over 40 I tend to like a light mascara that looks natural. The Katy Kat looked decent with one coat but has too many other issue for me to be a fan.

On the plus side I had no itching or irritation at all and the product have a very light scent which I liked.

I took the above photo about 3 hours after I applied the mascara and I was out on a very windy day. You can see a weird black streak on my left eye and I think that’s from my hair swiping across my mascara and onto my face which was just weird.

Overall I think this mascara would probably work for some people, it’s just not my cup of tea. With so many mascaras on the market competition is fierce (ha…Katy Perry reference there) and this one didn’t make my cut.
