Virus Insanity

If the name Virus Insanity doesn't grab your attention, if you're like me and love eye shadows, the duo chrome eye shadows will!
I can't even remember how I came across this online store, but keep reading, and you'll see why I fell in love with them! The website is easy to navigate, and I really appreciate the fabulous photos that show the eye shadows applied to lids.
I know I am raving about the eye shadows, but there are also lip glosses, eye primer and nail polish (unfortunately these aren't shipped internationally from the US).

Without further ado, I will move on to the swatches

Caramel Machiatto- Bronze neutral shimmer.

Ira- Wine shimmer

Shenanigans- Purple with green shift. The green shift is visible in the next pic.

Stupid Cupid- Pink with a coral to bronze shift. None of my pics could do this gorgeous shadow justice, check out the link to see this lovely colour!

Invidia- Red velvet.

Princess- Pink with purple shimmer.

Techno- Peach with holographic shimmer.

Plaid and Rad- Lime green.

Pear Cobbler- Champagne shimmer.

Afterglow- Shimmery light taupe

Jasper- Golden green shimmer.
As you can see the samples are in clam shells, which I am not a fan of, but quickly forgot then when swatching the beautiful shadows.

For this look, I used Stupid Cupid on the lid, outer lid is Shenanigans. Caramel Machiatto on my browbone, and crease/lower lashline is Ira.

Here I have Pear Cobbler on my lid with Afterglow on my browbone and Jasper in my crease.

These eye shadows are lovely to work with. They are well pigmented and adhere well. I need Pear Cobbler, such a simple colour, yet beautiful and quite flattering. 
Virus Insanity have some insanely gorgeous eye shadows! :)


  1. Oh these look wonderful! Caramel Machiatto looks absolutely gorgeous (and sounds delicious hehe). Pear Cobbler looks lovely on you :)

    1. They're definitely worth trying, Sarah, even if it is just some samples.

  2. I NEED Ira and Stupid Cupid!!!

    Love the EOTDs too, the second, neutral toned one is just gorgeous!


    1. I could only imagine the gorgeous looks you would be able to create with these, hun :)
