Katy Perry is following up the release of her new music and footwear collection with the launch of a new make-up collaboration with CoverGirl. The Chained to the Rhythm singer, who has been the face of the beauty brand since 2013, revealed she was inspired by mermaids when creating her new limited edition Katy Kat Pearl collection.

"In the next evolution of my Katy Kat line with CoverGirl, I was inspired by spring's upcoming mermaid and pearlescent hues," Katy told POPSUGAR. "There are new fun and cheerful colours ranging from peachy Apricat to a Bluetiful lip, shimmery highlighters in rose and gold, and a pop of Whispurr white or Purmaid green to line your eyes."

Katy added: "If you're more classic but still want some fun, I put glitter in the black liners. You'll make Ariel jealous, and look better than a shimmering Easter basket when you're done." The range will include four new eyeliners, four lipsticks and two shadow-and-highlighter duos, which will launch online at in early March.

The 32-year-old has already given the beauty products their red carpet debut at the Grammys earlier this month, wearing a highlighter, eyeliner and eyeshadow from the limited edition collection to complement her shimmering Tom Ford ensemble.

Katy has long been a beauty lover, and described herself as a "chameleon" when it came to experimenting with her look. "I love experimenting and playing... I'm a chameleon when it comes to looks," Katy told Refinery29. "One day, I'm really soft and pretty and Lolita; the next day, I'll rip your face off and look like a vampire. The rest of the days, I'm in an Adidas tracksuit. I'll wear a black-and-white Adidas tracksuit basically any day I'm not really doing all this, little-to-no makeup, and a hat. It's a way for me to deflect."
