Hello Lovely Ladies :)
I have been MIA for a couple of weeks and I apologize for that. I had a family emergency, and as soon as that was all settled, I got a horrible cold, plus school started. Busy busy busy, but I kinda like it. Needless to say, I have not been wearing much makeup at all, maybe some concealer on trouble spots and a quick dusting of powder and gloss, and I miss wearing my fun makeup. Don't get me wrong, i love the "natural" look and neutral face but man, I did realize I do wear a lot of bright colors, that are perhaps a big "don't" according to beauty magazines :p
Ok, no on to today's post. I got a few samples of Virus Insanity Eyeshadow. The baggies look as if they had a teeny amount of product, however, there is plenty in there, I just did not find any clam shells lying around here to pot them in. here are the colors and swatches, and I will post a look using these perhaps later tonight or tomorrow.
VIE sample baggies
Swatched over VIE Crazy Primer (lightly applied and dry)
Top Row: Funshine Bear (CareBear Collection), Sookie, Frien Bear, Tinkerbell, Learn From Yesterday
Bottom: Bedtime Bear, Lafayette, Becca-ecca, Haunting, Nightmare
No flash, artificial lighting, but these are close to the actual color, in fact,
in actuality, they are a tad brighter and very much more sparkly.
What can I say? VIE is one of my top 2, and I have over 70 of their pigments :) These are right up my alley and I love them!
Funshine Bear: Lemony yellow with micro fine holo sparkle.
Sookie: This is a warm taupe with a green shift
Friend Bear: Peach with holo sparkle
Tinkerbell: Green, more like aqua-green, satiny with some sparkle
Learn From Yesterday: Pink based Purple/magenta. I see some micro fine glitter as well, maybe gold and silver
Bedtime Bear: Blue (almost neon!) and satin finish. This is the most pigmented...amazingly pigmented.
Lafayette: dark Lavender with strong blue shift. I LOVE this one so much
Haunt: Blackened Maroon, satiny
Nightmare: Blackened Teal/Blue-Green/with Navy. very interesting color .
So what do you think? I love all the colors. I actually wore Funshine Bear, Friend Bear, and Sook with some dark brown on the outer corner, all over a bronze base (the 24hr tattoos) and it looked amazing, the bronze gave me colors a nice warm tone to them.
