China Glaze Hunger Games Collection: Riveting and Agro Swatches & Review

This one's for all the Hunger Games fans out there! Today I'll be reviewing two of my favourites from the China Glaze Hunger Games Capitol Colors Collection: Riveting and Agro. I'm a huge fan of the books and the movie was pretty darn good too. I'd say my favourite character from the series is Cinna..maybe it's the fact that he's so different from everyone at the Capitol, or that he takes such big risks with the dresses for Katniss despite knowing the creepy President Snow is on to him? Anyway, I could go on about this forever. Here are the swatches:

Agro is an olive green metallic with subtle multi-coloured and gold shimmer. Agro is named after the Agriculture District 11, Rue's district. The formula is very pigmented and truly a one-coater. Because this is a metallic, you can see the brushstrokes in the sunlight. In the shade, however, they are less noticeable. Here's 2 coats of Agro:

Riveting is an orange jelly packed with golden shimmer. This is named after the Technology district, District 3. I don't what the colour has to do with technology as it reminds me more of The Girl On Fire. I used 3 coats to build the colour up and the result was just magical:

I just had to add the mockingjay pin to this:
