Virus Insanity Duochrome Shadow Swatches

Nothing to disclose, I purchased the product (split an order with a makeup group friend).

You all know Virus Insanity's duochromes....here's some swatches for you. These were all applied with a dampened wet/dry brush on bare skin. Photos taken inside, no flash.



this one's blurry but it shows off the sparkle. Yes, I also have that labeled in the photo, but let's face it, everyone looks at the pics and doesn't read the text!


Duochromes are not the easiest shadows to photograph, as you all know.  They can look very different in various lighting and angles.  Here's Virus Insanity's color descriptions, in case you're looking at the pics thinking "now what color is that?"

Caramel Machiatto is a bronze color that shifts from brown to a reddish gold

Hazelnut Cappucino is a soft golden brown that shifts from a reddish to a coppery to a golden color
Vanilla Latte is a very light peachy neutral with golden tones and iridescence that shifts from purple to red to silver
Sookie is a shimmery natural pinkish golden color with gold and silver glitter and iridescence that shifts from greenish gold to silvery green to blue
Peppermint Latte is a light pinkish neutral with iridescence that shifts from silvery green to silvery red to greenish gold

Next set, sorry I didn't get all the Coffee Collection shades in one set of photos.



and a "down the arm" type photo to try & capture the sparkle.  You can see how different Demon Bunny looks in this photo versus the straight on ones.


Clawdeen is shimmery medium brown with iridescence that shifts from green to gold to purple
Gingerbread Man is a coppery brown with iridescence that shifts from rose to green
Demon Bunny is a slightly blackened brown that shifts from brown to reddish gold to bronze
Reindeer is a deep brown with iridescence that shifts from red to lilac
Cinnamon Cappucino is a warm, dark brown with iridescence that shifts from gold to copper to red

I hope you've found the photos helpful, and thanks for looking.
