Forget teenage dreams, Katy Perry’s latest collaboration with CoverGirl is the answer to all of our lip gloss dreams. On Tuesday, January 16, the brand announced the latest addition to Perry’s Katy Kat makeup collection: Katy Kat Gloss.
Inspired by Perry’s bold beauty looks on and off stage, the highly pigmented glosses come in 12 shades that boast cheeky, feline-inspired names that are exactly what we’d expect from the Grammy winner. Cobalt Kitty is a vibrant sky blue, while Candy Cat is a pretty violet pink. Some shades, like the coral colored Tabby Tease can be worn all alone, but others, like the shimmer-infused White Cadillac, can layer over any lipstick or gloss for added shine and sparkle.
Lip glosses can get a bad rap for being overly sticky or gloppy, but the Katy Kat Gloss formula is moisturizing and leaves lips with a soft creamy feel. After seasons of ultra-matte lip looks, the high-shine finish of Perry’s glosses feels fresh without sacrificing color payoff. And the adorable “kitty-cap” toppers don’t hurt either.
Perry was first named a CoverGirl spokeswoman in 2013, and she released a line of 13 matte lipsticks in shades like Crimson Cat, Purrsian Pink Kitty Purry and four mascaras, including the brand’s first-ever electric blue mascara, in 2016.
Last fall, CoverGirl, which recently launched its #IAMWHATIMAKEUP campaign, added a host of powerhouse ambassadors to its ranks, announcing writer, producer, and actress Issa Rae would be joining 69-year-old Maye Musk and Ayesha Curry as new spokespeople. We can only hope these ladies follow in Perry’s footsteps and release collections of their own!
