Remember a few years ago when Katy Perry's shatter nail polish was all the rage?

She's been out of the beauty game since then, but now the "Dark Horse" singer is releasing her own eponymous makeup line in collaboration with CoverGirl.

"After several wonderful years of BEING the face, I now get to CREATE the face!" Perry tweeted on April 15.


The Katy Kat Collection will include 13 demi-matte lipsticks and two mascaras, one in black and one in blue. The collection seems a little sparse; maybe they're planning more products in the future. At least the lipsticks are multipurpose.

"I feel like you can take any lipstick and make it a blush," Perry told Elle of how she hacks her makeup. "I use it like finger paint, and you can put it on your eyes, too. When you're using less of a matte and more of a cream lipstick, it moves better and gives you a gloss."

And unlike other celebrity makeup lines (ahem, Kylie Jenner), the Katy Kat Collection is super affordable, too — the lipsticks are available for preorder now at Walmart.com for a budget-friendly $7.
