CoverGirl Limited Edition Capitol Collection Glosstinis Part 2

So, FINALLY, I found one of the collections I've been stalking the drug stores for... finally.Finally.FINALLY! Since this is a rarity of late, I wasn't quite sure what to do, but I had coupons and they were having a sale, and 5 minutes later... the entire collection (plus one) and I were happily bounding out to my little Fit. Self restraint, you say? What's that?!?

My Capitol Collection hails from my alternate CVS. They had 2 displays, and if I wouldn't have been so excited to see them, I probably would've remembered to take pictures. I blame it on the sparkles, too. There were 2 displays, both were likely recent additions, as most of the products were still intact. I actually had to open the shrink-wrap on the little booklets that came with the displays. :)

As I'm typing this, I'm wearing Black Heat, and it's the 2nd time I've worn it since I got it. I would probably say it's my favorite from the collection. Also, I was really impressed with the pigmentation of this collection. The pics above are just 2 coats! Scalding Emerald is the most sheer of the bunch, while Rogue Red, Black Heat, and Sulfur Blaze are probably tied for the most pigmented.

Remember how I said I'd have to see this collection in person? Well... this is honestly one that you do need to see swatches. I was surprised by the difference in swatches versus bottle color on some of these shades. I still maintain that it would've been nice to see different finishes... BUT... I do have to admit, I really ended up liking this collection more than I thought I would. If you're a fan of sparkles and glass flecks... You'll definitely want these for your stash!

Which Capitol Colors are you on the lookout for?
