I really like the colour, but I find it has a smell to it, that I just can't stand. I thought maybe I was wrong, there wasn't a smell, but I had multiple friends smell it too, and they all agreed that it has a gross smell to it. I would love to keep using this lipstick, as it's a great colour & lasts a long time, but the smell would need to be fixed before I'd consider using it again.
I have to admit I bought it at first just because it was really good-looking, good branding and all, but I am surpisingly pleased with this lipstick. The color looks amazing on me and it last long enough. If I eat something, sometimes I have to put another coat after, but for me that's ok. I really recommend it!
I received this lipstick free for trial through BzzAgent. I am not usually a lipstick person because I don't like reapplying all the time ( I can't be bothered ). This one was very nice though. It is super creamy and moist and the matte colour is wonderful.
I received the Covergirl Katy Kat Matte in shade Sphynx free of charge from Bzzagent and Covergirl in exchange for my honest review. #Gotitfree
The packaging is very cute and simple, the matte finish on the packaging is interesting in comparison to the other lipsticks I own.
In regards to the formula, it is advertised as demi-matte but I find it to have more sheen-satin finish than a demi-matte finish. Although, I am going to experiment and keep wearing this lipstick to see if it will eventually dry demi-matte. The formula of the lipstick is hydrating and moisturising which is great as some lipsticks can be pretty dehydrating. The texture of this lipstick is definitely on the creamier side.
The application process was smooth and not patchy or rough; I prefer to apply chapstick prior to applying the lipstick.I also want to mention that there is a light fragrance to the lipstick, it's not too strong which is nice because it can irritate the skin for some people.
As for colour, the shade, Syphnx, is a beautiful nude with pink undertones. Some could call it a rosy shade; In my opinion, this shade is like your natural lip colour but better. This colour would look nice whether you are cool-tone or warm-tone and is suitable for everyday wear. "Lip Contouring" is actually a thing so I think this shade and some lip liners can help you achieve a beautiful plump-lip look if that is something that interests you.
The only con I could really say is the staying power, it does not last that long and would need to be applied or touched up throughout the day depending on how often you are drinking or eating. But.. that is what I find to be forgiving about the lipstick. Since it is pretty close to the natural colour of my lips, I am not too worried if I forget to reapply/touch up. Also, the price of this lipstick-- it may not be worth it for some people for the price you pay. There isn't anything too extraordinary about this lipstick other than that it is pretty and provides a smooth application
Overall, this is a beautiful lipstick and I am pretty happy with the overall result. Unfortunately, there wasn't any coupons that came with the Bzzkit but there is a coupon available (for a limited time) for $2 off any cover girl lip product!!
-Will suit almost anyone
-Beautiful dusty nude pink colour
-Easily found in most stores that sell covergirl
-Easy to apply
-Staying power isn't that longlasting - "average"
-A little bit expensive (in my opinion) (most drug stores are selling this between 8.99-9.99)
