I received an epic package from COVERGIRL a few weeks ago and as I was swooning in disbelief (and feeling incredibly grateful) over the gorgeous products that were sitting in front of me, I knew instantly that the first products I wanted to review were the adorable Katy Kat Glosses, which were created by Katy Perry. The super cute cat packaging and the vibrant array of colors in this lip gloss collection resonates perfectly with Katy’s fun style.
The Katy Kat Glosses ($7.99 each for 0.12 oz.) come in twelve luscious shades with either a shimmer or creme finish. These colors are on the brighter end of the spectrum with only two neutral shades in the mix of purples, blues, and red hues — there’s even a unique white shade!
The creamy texture of these glosses doesn’t feel thick or heavy, or sticky. Majority of the shades give a pigmented finish with the exception of Cateloupe, which is the sheerest in the collection. There is some variation in the formula as certain colors are streakier than others, aren’t as dense, and require layering to achieve their full opacity (White Catillac, Cobalt Kitty, Indigo Cat). Longevity varies as well depending on the shade — those with a saturated color (Kitty Karma, Candy Cat, Ninth Life) will uphold throughout four to five hours of wear, while the ones with a thinner texture (Cateloupe, Tabby Tease ) will fade quicker.
All in all, these glosses are true-to-color and are very pleasant and comfortable to wear. Although the formulation is inconsistent in terms of application and pigmentation, and the shades aren’t transfer-proof, they’re all equally moisturizing and doesn’t feather or bleed. I really enjoy the color selection, hydrating formula, and love the intense color payoff.
