Katy Perry has graced billboards and magazine ads as the gorgeous face of CoverGirl since 2013, but the star is expanding her role with the company in an oh-so-Katy Perry way. The pop star is launching her own line of makeup with the beauty giant, which is set to hit stores this summer!
Katy Kat, a nod to her nickname and affection for felines, will be on shelves in July, but the star posed for some hype-inducing preview pics to make the wait easier. “After several wonderful years of BEING the face, I now get to CREATE the face! 💁🏻🎨,” she announced on Twitter Friday afternoon.
The collection will focus on two main products: moisturizing, demi-matte lipsticks and longwear mascaras, each which comes in a variety of shades. The 13 lipsticks all bear names that are a play on the theme — think: Purrisan Pink, Kitty Purry, Maroon Meow — while the ultra-volmizing mascaras (a nod to the star’s signature wide-eyed look) come in “Perry Blue,” black and Very Black, both regular and waterproof.

Now that Perry’s gotten into the lab for her first-ever collection, does this mean we should expect fellow CoverGirls Zendaya, Ellen DeGeneres and Sofia Vergara to follow suit with their own namesake lines? The year is still young, so we’ll start clearing space in our makeup collections now.
