Covergirl The Hunger Games Catching Fire Capitol Collection including The Covergirl Flamed Up Mega Curl Mascara

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…

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]

    Hello winter indeed! Stay warm!!! I need to find this mascara as I really like the earlier one from the flamed out line. Hopefully like the first version, this one also comes in brown and at least a water resistant formula. And is also part of the permanent line up! LE staple products make me sad.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks I will! 🙂
      I never tried the other version, but am thinking I should!

  • Ah, it’s such a pity those nail stickers didn’t turn out too well! I was thinking they look cool, but my nails are also way too short for them. I do really love how the mascara looks on you though, but then again I can’t remember seeing a mascara on you that doesn’t wow me. It’s probably because you have nice lashes to begin with! 40cm of snow! Whoa!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Yeah, they’re way too big which is a shame.
      Thanks Sunny! I can get most mascaras to look good I know, but it’s the formula of this one that I love!

  • I’m pretty sure EVERY SINGLE MASCARA MAKES YOUR LASHES LOOK SMEXY. Gah. Gah! So jelly, Tracy.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL hahahaha this one is awesome! Already bought another one!

  • Icaria

    Will you STOP with mascaras!!! I’m so jealous of your lashes it’s like you do it on purpose! Grrr! 😀 I saw these stickers and they didn’t do much for me either. Sorry to hear about the snow storm. I’m crossing my fingers, so far we’ve been pretty lucky with the weather but I know we won’t be spared, our turn will come. Hang in there! Funny I took Cat to see the movie last night and we really enjoyed it, in Imax it was pretty awsome.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL haha sorry??? 🙂 Yeah I think they’re a little childish? I don’t know maybe the other ones are better! I can hardly wait to see it as I hear it’s really good!

  • O-M-G! I am in lurve with your lashes! And cracking up at the Donna Summer disco reference! Yes! I can’t wait to see this movie, and possibly own this mascara. 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      :D:D Thanks! Me too. I can hardly wait to see it.

  • Emma Bovary

    I saw the film the night in came out in Gold Class cinemas, was so luxe and I had so much fun. I’m not sure if we are getting this collection sadly =(

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      That’s too bad. 🙁
      I can hardly wait to see it!

  • This probably won’t launch here, but even if it did I wouldn’t be particularly interested. I never got into the whole Hunger Games hype. And thank god, really, because I am already crazy over too many books & movie series 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      :D:D The first book is REALLY good. The second is ok. The last one drags.

  • -26 ?!?!? often times i’m quite glad not to live in edmonton. ahah. when it gets slightly cold here i super bundle up even when all the other torontonians are just wearing thinner winter jackets.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha yup. This week it’s gonna be really cold!

  • Lily

    I know I’ve said it before, but Tracy, I don’t trust your mascara reviews because YOUR LASHES MAKE ALL MASCARAS LOOK GREAT!!
    That said, I haven’t seen the Hunger Games yet. I kinda opted for Frozen instead 😛

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      :D:D I can make them look great, but because of that I can tell which formulas really suck if ya know what I mean.

  • I’m going to The Hunger Games next weekend! We were supposed to go today but then my nose decided to act up and I’ve been sneezing away all day and am already on my second box of tissues..

    I love the mascara! WOW!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      :D:D The mascara is great! Bought a backup already!
      I can hardly wait to see it!

  • Liz

    I would kill for your lashes! (Feeling that this phrase is appropriate for the Hunger Games theme. YES.) Haha, I’d be so happy if some CG mascara worked on me. 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL thanks Liz! and yes it is haha!
      Oh, really? I like almost everyone by them actually!

  • Cool collection. I bet we never see it though. 🙁

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      🙁 that’s sad

  • Those nail stickers look dissapointing as all get out, but I will be picking up the mascara! Hope you and your girl enjoy the movie!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Margo! I think it’s going to be next week now though-so much to do and it’s SO COLD here right now!
