I’m sure you’ve all seen the Covergirl The Hunger Games Collection Catching Fire Capitol Collection products in stores by now, and have even probably seen the movie too. I haven’t yet, but I think me and the red head will try to catch it next week. In the meantime, we’ve been having fun with some of the collection that showed up here this past week. All the flames had me singing: Got some hot stuff baby this evening…looking for some hot stuff baby tonite…
Pictured from left to right: Covergirl Crimson Blaze Nail Stickers($9.99 CAD), Covergirl Lipslicks Smoochies Sizzle Gloss($6.49CAD), Covergirl Outlast Glosstini Nail Gloss in Seared Bronze($4.99 CAD), Covergirl Flamed Up Mega Curl Mascara($9.99 CAD)
The Covergirl Lipslick Smoochies Sizzle Gloss is in the shade Firecracker. It’s a really sheer light peach with lotsa sparkles(no flames thank goodness). Tasted fruity! Really glossy! But not much colour on the lips, so I didn’t take a pic or a swatch as it was kinda of useless. Pretty over lipstick though!
The Covergirl Crimson Blaze Nail Stickers($9.99 CAD) are Covergirl’s first nail appliques:
They are LONG. You have to have pretty nice, long nails and nail beds for these flames! We over here do not, but I did get Marky to try them out over the Covergirl Outlast Glosstini Nail Gloss in Seared Bronze(I tried to get her to model whilst holding a pita bread, but she wouldn’t go for it):
The polish was a lot sheerer than we were expecting and it took 3 coats to get some kind of coverage going. It’s a pretty glitter of gold, bronze, orange, green and isn’t gritty which is good, but three coats is UGGGGH for those of us with polish ADD. The nail stickers like I said are not made for short nails, as the flame design is kind of big! You’d have to have some long talons for them to look like they do on the packaging! I think the design should have been a lot smaller. Maybe then they wouldn’t look so…I don’t know… it doesn’t read so much as a flame to me..it’s the cartoonish look that I don’t care for. Sorry Covergirl!
What I LOVED LOVED LOVED was the Covergirl Flamed Up Mega Curl Mascara($9.99 CAD):
If there’s one thing that I think Covergirl does really well, it’s mascara and this one is great! The curve on the wand really helps lift up your lashes. I love curved wands, because I skip using a mascara curler when I see one!
The formula of Covergirl Flamed Up Mega Curl Mascara is just what I like: not too wet, not too dry-it’s just right! Easily buildable and does a great job of defining, curling, and adding a bit of volume as well. No flaking or smearing through out the day either! Here’s what it looks like in action with some eyeshadow I was testing today:
I think it’s better to see a mascara in action lately, and especially how it holds up with a darker eyeshadow, and the Covergirl Flamed Up Mega Curl Mascara holds its own! I really like it a lot!
You can still find Covergirl The Hunger Games Collection Catching Fire Capitol Collection at your local drugstores, but ya’ better hurry as most of it is limited edition! Not sure about the Covergirl Flamed Up Mega Curl Mascara, but I hope it’s here to stay! If not, I’ll be picking up some more to hoard!
Happy Saturday! Whatcha’ all doing today? I’m a’ battening down the hatches for a big winter storm heading here tomorrow afternoon and Monday! I think around 40 cm of snow is expected to fall, and the temperature will drop to -26C by Monday night. Hello Winter! [emoji snowman without snow]
