Cats. People either love ’em or hate ’em. Some people love them so much that they end up on My Strange Addiction.


If you are obsessed with cats, you’re in good company. Taylor Swift, Karl Lagerfeld, Ed Sheeran, Miley Cyrus and Kesha are just a few celebrities who feel warm and fuzzy at the sound of a purr.

In the spirit of International Cat Day, we’ve rounded up some feline-themed beauty spoils to add to your arsenal. They’re almost as cute as the real thing…

1. The Vamp Stamp

When it comes to make-up, the cat eye, or winged-liner look, is always in style. This handy tool works like a stamp and helps you to create the perfect cat eyes first time around.

2. Maybelline The Colossal Cat Eyes Volum’ Express Mascara

The best way to make sure that your cat-eye make-up stands out and gets the attention it deserves it to frame it with a mascara that was designed to complement it. Like this one.

3. Tonymoly Cats Wink Clear Pact

This oil- and shine-reducing powder compact is as cute as it is effective, and it does a purr-fect job of concealing pores, too.

4. Essence Wood You Love Me? Energizing Eye Sheet Mask

Our eyes work hard for us every day – squinting at your phone screen takes its toll – so show them you care by using an eye mask that will get you likes on the ‘Gram and revive your peepers.

5. Black Cat Massager

It’s unlikely that you will get your cat to perform a massage on you. Because they are rude like that.


Don’t fret – this handy, portable back massager will help to relax your tense muscles. For best results, enlist a partner or a friend to get those hard-to-reach spots.

6. OPI Hello Kitty Charmmy & Sugar Nail Polish

Renowned nail brand OPI recently joined forces with Hello Kitty to create a line of nail lacquers that will delight fans of this popular Japanese character. It’s cute and sparkly, and worthy of a spot in your collection.

7. Hello Kitty Tangle Teezer

Another one for the Hello Kitty fans, this time from Tangle Teezer. These innovative combs can tackle and remove knots in your hair without damaging it. And it will look adorable on your dressing table.

8. Zana Crazy Cat Lady Pouch

Time to stop hiding your love of our feline friends. Loud-and-proud cat ladies can let their freak flag fly by toting their make-up around in this cute, locally-made pouch.
