The collection boasts 13 different demi-matte lipsticks — including a bold, black shade — and 11 of those hues are already available for pre-sale at Walmart!
The brunette beauty dished to Vogue about why lipstick is such a huge part of the cool collab, saying:
“I just need a lipstick to make my face come to life!”
The gorgeous gal also explained why she opted for a matte makeup rather than a glistening gloss, spilling:
“Personally, I love a matte finish more than a gloss because a gloss gets all over everything. I want to put my lipstick on once in the early morning and not have to think about it for quite a few hours, you know?
But there’s more to KP’s line than lips!
Katy Kat also features both black and blue mascara! The AH-mazing artist says the unique hues were actually inspired by what she saw on social media, specifically Instagram and Tumblr:
“I wanted to push the envelope with CoverGirl. You know, a black lipstick or a blue mascara is very TumblrI told them, this is what’s happening online, this is what everyone’s Instagramming. Tumblr is where I grab all my inspiration from. I follow really cool people that are just being themselves, and then I start to follow their friends. I’m a bit of a voyeur because no one really knows I’m watching their lives.”
The powerful performer opened up about how she could experiment with makeup as a child while she didn’t have access to much else:
“I was always experimenting with makeup. What’s so interesting is that even though I grew up in a sheltered household, even though I wasn’t allowed to wear thongs or anything like that, my mom would say, You should put on a little lipstick’from age 12! It was very strange, but I was wearing lipstick of all colors from 12 and 13. I’d use it on my cheeks, my eyes, and I was very into classic reds. When I started developing my own sense of style, I thought I was a pinup girl. I was obsessed with them at 13: I’d do a black liner and a red lipstick and that was my go-to.”
