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.

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.

Have you tried Virus Insanity? Are you a fan?

Products purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
