It was pretty difficult to buy this palette because it was quickly out of stock at many UD counters as well as online. I managed to get my hands on it, so let’s have a thorough look at it?
The palette is pretty big and it’s made of thick cardboard material. Inside you’ll find a mirror and a throne.
The packaging is of nice quality and the design is run in the Game of Thrones style. The palette offers a map of Westeros and inside it also has some quotes from Tyrion and Daenerys.
The palette is easy to take out thanks to a small pull strap at the side.
The eyeshadows are soft in texture. They are silky to the touch and the shimmers can be a little bit dusty when picking up with a brush, so use either a sponge or your fingertip to apply them.
The colors here are very well packed with pigments. They look bright even without a primer and always blend out smoothly.
Almost all the shades from the palette are shimmering, only three of them are matte.
At first, let’s have a look at the shades of White Walkers.
These are cool-toned and one of the shades is a pigmented black one with shimmer - Take the black,
white-blue duochrome White Walker, silver Free Folk, and the most beautiful one dark turquoise, that shifts to blue - Frozen north
The shimmering Hardhome is chunky in texture but it’s so packed with glitter that can be used as a highlighter. It’s fair and beige in color.
The Winterfell shades are brighter and they include;
dark-brown satin, bronze Winter is here, which is perfect for the crease.
Weirwood leaves - dark purple that shifts to red color.
Emerald and saturated green hue - The Sight
Shimmering Winterfell, which is more like metallic that is old gold and bronze in shade.
Nymeria is soft and fuss-free to apply. It’s neutral and brown. (By the way, why did they name it Nymeria? Arya’s direwolf would flatter something more silver or dark gray).
The shades of the House of Lannister are obviously golden and red-toned. They also have matte shades.
Red Keep - rusty bronze metallic. It’s really packed with pigments and easy to blend out and mix with other golden or bronzing shades.
Casterly Rock is copper and metallic. It’s paler than the Winter is Here.
Shimmering King’s Landing is a bright and saturated fair golden shade. This one is better milled than the other shimmers.
House Lannister is a gentle pink-peach matte shade.
Lannister red is a red-brown matte color. It’s dark and packed with pigments. Like wine or brick.
Lannister Red can be tinting your skin with pink pigments after washing it off. So, wear it over a primer to avoid boo-booes.
The shimmering shades may fall out when I apply them but in general, their quality is on fleek!
Maybe later, I’ll fill in my review with some pictures of my makeup done with this palette.
The Targaryen House shades are gentle and glistening. I especially love the purple shades Stormborn, which is brighter and more vibrant than the Bend the Knee one. It’s a gentle lilac duochrome with blue shimmer bits.
Dothraki is pure yellow gold while House Targaryen has more pinkish and bronzing casting. The shades Khaleesi are semi-sheer and require packing for a brighter undertone.
The shimmering Bay of Dragons offers pink shade and semi-sheer duochrome casting.
If you’re a lucky owner of the Urban Decay x Game of Thrones eyeshadow palette, you can create endless amounts of eye makeups with it, including daytime and evening looks.
The shades here are beautiful and really well packed with pigments.
The palette will be an awesome present for any Game of Thrones fan.
It includes a lot of bronzing and golden shades, as well as vibrant shimmers. Mainly it consists of glistening color, where only 3 of them are matte. Some shades may fall out when applying.
The price tag for this palette was $65.
As for the disadvantages, I can list the limited edition, which will be sold out too quickly!
