For Katy, makeup collaborations are familiar territory. She's been the face of Covergirl for years and has helmed the Katy Kat line, which includes best-selling products like the Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks and Katy Kat Eye Mascaras. The brand's latest announcement reveals plans to take their partnership with the pop songstress one step further: enter, Katy Kat Pearl.
"In the next evolution of my Katy Kat line with CoverGirl, I was inspired by Spring's upcoming mermaid and pearlescent hues," Katy said in a statement given to POPSUGAR. Fitting, for someone who has been rocking the mermaid aesthetic ever since she "Kissed a Girl and Liked It".
The new collection will include four eyeliners, four lipsticks, and two shadow-highlighter duos, and is set to appear on-line in March and in-stores in April. Till then, stave off your excitement with this sneak peak, courtesy of POPSUGAR:
Lisa Frank takes a different approach with her collection, in that we're not actually sure it will even happen. The 90s Stationary Queen has collaborated with cruelty-free makeup brand Glamour Dolls to create a KickStarter that hopes to raise $30 000 that will go towards launching a six-piece collection. A drawing on their Kickstarter page reveals plans for a lip balm, liquid liner, highlight powder, and a mysterious-but-amazing sounding "unicorn lippie" (amongst other things).
Those who contribute to the Kickstarter are privy to exclusive updates on the line's development, sneak peaks of how the products are made, a chance to vote on their names, and more. The perks seem to be working, considering they've already raised over $100 000 ($70 000 more than their original goal). It just goes to show: in a world of forever-evolving beauty trends, nostalgia trumps all.
