CoverGirl The Hunger Games Catching Fire Violet Flicker




Over the weekend I spotted a new display at CVS of CoverGirl Glosstinis. The display was part of The Hunger Games Catching Fire Collection. There will be 12 looks from the collection with glosses, shadows, etc.  I think I counted 9-10 of these polishes and they were in a separate display.  I picked up three, the colors I thought I'd like or get the most use out of. There was also a red, orange and yellow, but those didn't appeal to me. I posted a picture of the ones I purchased on Instagram.

Violet Flicker is a pink/purple base with fuchsia and blue glitter. I was excited for this one but once on the nails, it's very sheer. These pictures are with two coats. A pretty color but not much coverage. Surprising considering the regular line is very opaque.

Chicken Enchilada Dip

This is a great recipe for fall Football watching or any gathering! That's actually how and when I came up with Chicken Enchilada Dip. I think my Husband and I were talking enchiladas but I didn't have tortillas. I then searched around the pantry and came up with this recipe. It's loosely based off of an Enchilla Recipe I've done before. It's so good and I'm warning you it's addictive! 

Chicken Enchilada Dip

Ingredients

1 lb cooked chicken breast, shredded OR 2 large cans chicken breast, shredded
1 small can green chilis
1 block (8oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonaise
1/2 cup diced onion (or green onion)
2 cups (4oz) mexican blend cheese
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 11x7 or similar shallow casserole dish with non-stick spray. Mix all ingredients, except for 1/4 of the cheese, in a large bowl. Pour into the casserole dish, even out and bake for 20-30 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes or until melted. Serve with Fritos Scoops, tortilla chips or soft tortillas.

Spicier Alternatives

add 2 cans of green chilis
and/or 1 diced jalapeƱo
and/or hot sauce of your choice

Cover Girl Midnight Magic

natural light 
Well Cover Girl, you keep impressing me with these Outlast Stay Brilliant polishes. This is one of several new ones I picked up recently. They have some new shades in the regular display. One even looks like it could be a very close dupe to my all-time favorite - Chanel Paradoxal.

So not only do I love the formula of these polishes {they never let me down}, but now I'm glad to see some new, more funky shades. This one is called Midnight Magic. I think the name fits perfectly. At first glance, it looks like a silver blue with green-yellow micro glitter. Once on the nails and in certain lighting, it almost looks like a duo-chrome. I can see a pinkish-purple base to it. Reminds me a little of MAC's Club Eye Shadow {for you fellow makeup buffs}. Really loving this one!
