Katy Kat Pearl - Swatches and Reviews

Hello, hello!!

Welcome to A Mascara Moment!!

After searching for weeks - I finally found the new Covergirl Katy Kat Pearl release!

I picked up two lipsticks, both highlighters and an eye pencil.

The collection is all high frost, which is amazing in my opinion.  I love a good frost lipstick and a little frost in my highlighter can't hurt either!

Purrty in Pink / Apricat

Tiger's Eye / Tiger Rose

The entire collection is great.

The lipstick is pigmented, long wearing and doesn't bleed.  It goes on opaque in one swipe.  Both Purrty in Pink and Arpicat are high frost.  Purrty in Pink is a blue pink frost and Apricat is a cool peach frost.  I think they both look great on the lips.  They are hydrating and very pretty on.  As frost do, these both settle into lines on the lips, but not in the severe way that a liquid lipstick does.

On their own, or mixed together, the lipsticks are great and I am kicking myself that I didn't pick up the coral colour as well.

The highlighter/shadows are beautiful.  They are not a high glow/shimmer highlighter that has been trendy as of late.  They are just lovely, soft, lightly frosted highlights.  They define and catch the light, but are not blinding.  They are very creamy and blend out well.  You can build from very sheer to higher impact.  They can be used on the eyelids as well, or as a blush topper.

Tiger's Eye is a golden highlight and Tiger Rose is a cool toned pink highlighter.  They perform the same and both have great staying power.

I like to use Tiger's Eye as a highlight on the cheekbone and on the eyelid.  I prefer Tiger Rose as a blush topper and a eyeshadow.

Either way, they are lovely and I have been enjoying a more subtle highlight.

The eyeliner is a fun frosted white.  It is an iridescent white called Kitty Whispurr.  It is not the best eye liner.  If you have used a drugstore eye liner in the past, this is probably the same.  It goes on smooth, but is not pigmented and takes a few swipes to build up to opaque.  The staying power isn't great.  I found it disappeared in a few hours.

That said, it looks great while it lasts.  I don't mind having to reapply because it adds a little pop of frost on my waterline!

I have really enjoyed all of the products in this Katy Kat line - matte and pearl.  This has been such a good collaboration with Cover Girl and Katy Perry.  I hope to see more!
