A while back at the recommendation of friends, I decided to try out Virus Insanity Eyeshadows. They had some interesting looking duochromes and other colors. So I placed two orders in quick succession, picking up several samples and a few full size colors.
These were all swatched on top of Gosh Eyeshadow primer.
a peachy orange with tons of iridescent rainbow glitter and silver rainbow hologram glitter
a pinkish purple with tons of rainbow iridescent glitter and silver rainbow hologram glitter.
a blue toned teal with tons or rainbow iridescent glitter and silver rainbow hologram glitter
a deep blackened green that shifts to a rose color
Four Leaf Clover
a teal with iridescence that shifts from turquoise to blue to purple
a warm coral pink with iridescence that shifts from blue to silvery green to golden green
a pinkish purple with iridescence that shifts from red to copper to gold
a deep blackened blue that shifts to purple and teal
a shimmery medium brown with iridescence that shifts from green to gold to purple
a shimmery natural pinkish golden color with gold and silver glitter. Sookie also has iridescence shifts from greenish gold to silvery green to blue.
a super light pink with iridescence that shifts from gold/green to silver/green to blue

Would I recommend?
Yes. I found the eyeshadows to be beautifully pigmented. The color descriptions were fairly accurate. I couldn’t coax all of the duochromes to show up, but I did the best I could. The colors last forever on primer for me. I hit the 20 hour mark without showing wear. The colors blend easily, too.
While I do find the website design to be unique, I dislike that it has no search functionality. When I let the company owner know that, she told me that the site was being redesigned. So rejoice! There will be better navigation soon.
Virus Insanity has a good mix of colors; there’s something for everyone. With multiple collections ranging from True Blood to Disgustingly Cute, there’s a lot of fun product names. Fangtasia, Haunting, Pinch Me, Cotton Candy, Rave, Lollipop and Medusa are all on my ‘Must Try’ list.
