So, here I was, browsing a fashion magazine and reading about this new makeup collection by Katy Perry inspired by cats. Katy Perry is a very kitty girl, isn’t she? Very much like me, as my cat Niles looks exactly like Katy Perry’s cat from this collection’s campaign ad, black with short hair, only my Niles is an adult cat and not a kitty, and he’s got green eyes and not blue. I am a declared cat person.

Yesterday I had a few appointments downtown Toronto, and while on my way to one of them (a fashion event on Front Street, and I’ll tell you more about it soon), I stopped at a drug store and bought two new lipsticks from Katy Perry’s collection for CoverGirl, Magenta Minx KP03 and Kitty Purry KP07. Then I went to the said fashion event, where I spent about an hour. After that, I had a break of about 30 minutes until my next appointment, so I decided to spend that extra half an hour in a Starbucks coffee shop next door. And I could hardly wait to try on my new Katy Perry matte lipsticks.
I went to Starbucks to have a coffee; my favorite and usual hot drink is black coffee. I always have it the same way – black with one sugar, regardless where I buy it, be it Starbucks or Tim Hortons or any other coffee shop. And I always have coffee for a hot drink. I don’t buy tea, or latte, or cappuccino, or frappucino, or any other …cinos, or any other hot drinks for that matter, and that’s because black coffee is my best way to boost my energy level and to help me keep up through the day. So this time I was in that Starbucks coffee shop on Front Street and I almost bought my usual black coffee with one sugar, but then while waiting in line, I thought what a heck, let’s shake things up a bit, why don’t I try something else instead of my usual coffee. So I went for a latte instead. It feels good to do it differently for a change every now and again, be it a new lipstick or a new hot drink.

|Not so matte after all, I'm afraid. :)|
However, I was too quick to judge. I went on about my day, I had the last appointment downtown yesterday afternoon, then I went home. Hours later, the lipstick was still on my lips, and I didn’t have to reapply it every two hours like it happens with my old signature lipstick from Rimmel London. Here’s a selfie of mine from yesterday afternoon in my car, close to 5 PM. My lipstick is still on, and it really lasted for hours.
