What do Dragons even eat?
No matter they need.
OH MAN. I’m LOVING sassy Daenarys this season! She is killing me with these comebacks, and hopefully she’ll quickly be killing the Night time King with a blade of Dragon Glass. (or a minimum of somebody from her armies will!)
I will admit, I’m a relative newcomer to Recreation of Thrones, however it does not make me any much less obsessive about it! I binged the primary 7 seasons somewhat over a 12 months in the past, and as soon as I acquired previous the primary few episodes, I used to be 100% hooked! Finest a part of your complete sequence thus far? Sansa rising a pair and feeding Ramsey to his canine. That was 10000000% extra satisfying than Joffrey’s loss of life and Cersei’s stroll of disgrace mixed.
After I heard that one in every of my favourite make-up manufacturers was collaborating with HBO to create a GoT assortment, my coronary heart began beating so quick, and OMG can I inform you the nervousness I had over the potential for lacking out on it! I made a decision to only go for it, and get your complete GoT vault, which comprises a 20-shade eyeshadow palette, a 3-shade highlighter palette, 4 pencil eyeliners, 4 lipsticks, a cheek & lip stain, and final however not least, 2 brushes impressed by the swords of Jon Snow & Arya Stark. Learn on for my swatches and ideas!
Recreation of Thrones eyeshadow palette
This palette is one in every of my favourite issues from the gathering – there are 20 shades (3 matte, 17 shimmer/metallic), that are break up into 4 themes; White Walkers, Home Stark, Home Lannister, and Home Targaryen. Every home has 4 colours and a transformer shade. I used to be tremendous impressed with the pigmentation of many of the shades after I swatched them, however there have been a couple of (largely the extra iridescent/shimmery shades from the White Walker part of the palette) that had been somewhat lackluster of their efficiency.
Take a look at the swatches from the White Walker and three Homes beneath:
White Walker – from backside: Take the Black, White Walker, Frozen North, Free People, Hardhome
Home Stark – From backside: Nymeria, Winter is Right here, Eirwood Leaves, The Sight, Winterfell
Home Lannister – From backside: Pink Maintain, Casterly Rock, Home Lannister, Lannister Pink, King’s Touchdown
Home Targaryen – From backside: Stormborn, Home Targaryen, Dothraki, Bend the Knee, Bay of Dragons
I really feel like regardless of my deep hatred for Cersei, I like the colours from the Home Lannister part essentially the most – they’re excellent for my gingery coloring, and SO fairly. Bend the Knee from Home Targaryen can also be SUPER attractive.
Recreation of Thrones – Mom of Dragons Highlighter palette
I actually needed this largely for the packaging, and that dragon egg emboss? OMG. The three shades, at first look, do not actually appear to be they will play effectively with my pasty white walker pores and skin, however I’ve found that Rhaegal makes a GORGEOUS blush, and I am sort of obsessed! I in all probability will not put on these shades as a highlighter, since they ARE too darkish for me, however they will make nice shades to make use of in different places. In a phrase, they’re GORGEOUS.
From backside: Dragon, Viserion, Rhaegal
Recreation of Thrones – 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencils
After I swatched the primary shade of those on my arm, I used to be shocked by how pigmented and easy they had been – I will be sincere, I’ve by no means been a lot of a pencil liner particular person, but when the remainder of the UD liners are like this, I am sorry I have been lacking out for therefore lengthy! Whereas all 4 pencils are GORGEOUS, I am significantly obsessive about Lannister Gold… once more. Rattling these Lannisters! Nicely, largely rattling Cersei, I moderately like Tyrion, and Jaime is popping out to be a reasonably respectable man, too.
From Backside: Lannister Gold, Dragon Smoke, The Night time King, Winterfell Snow.
Critically? These are attractive. Lannister Gold is sort of a mixture of gold and silver, so it comes throughout as extra of a champagne metallic, which I am not mad about. Dragon Smoke is a deep black with sparks of purple and blue, The Night time King is a deep metallic teal, and Winterfell Snow is stuffed with icy iridescent glitter.
Recreation of Thrones – Vice Lipstick
A stunning peachy nude that’s just about MADE for us gingers, and the deepest berry shade that’s positive to be a private favourite are simply two of the 4 limited-edition colours of UD’s creamy, pigmented Vice lipstick. I will be sincere, I used to be frightened that Sansa Stark was going to be too mild for my pores and skin tone, however as quickly as I put it on, my fears had been assuaged. It is just about excellent, and it is going to be in heavy rotation. I discover it troublesome to discover a fairly nude that works with my pores and skin tone, and that is positively one. Every lipstick has a design representing the home that impressed it, which is able to make it simple to seize which one you need rapidly, however lets be sincere, I adore it as a result of I am a sucker for packaging.
From backside: Cersei Lannister (a heat bronze metallic), Sansa Stark (creamy peachy nude), Daenarys Targaryen (vivid purple), and White Walker (deep berry wine).
Recreation of Thrones Lip & Cheek Stain
OK, I will be sincere. I really feel like City Decay missed a chance right here. I imply, Dracarys is a cool title, however would not Dragon’s Blood be much more becoming? That apart, I’ve solely worn this as a lip stain thus far, however it builds very well, and is a beautiful shade. It jogs my memory of DuWop Lip Venom, however with out the pesky stinging/plumping, which I wasn’t a fan of. It is simple to make use of, simply add a drop or two to a fingertip and mix into your cheek or apply to lips. Superior for a multi-use product on the go!
Proven: a couple of drops of Dracarys unblended, and one layer of Dracarys blended.
Now, on to the brushes! Upon opening the vault, I instantly grabbed the brushes, and challenged Chris to a sword battle – I even supplied Lengthy Claw (Jon’s sword), however he declined. The place’s his sense of enjoyable?! Oh effectively, I did my very own match of sword-fighting earlier than I moved on to trying out the remainder of the gathering.
Arya Stark’s ‘Needle’ is a small, flat brush nice for depositing shade and for getting a exact placement of shade the place wanted and Jon Snow’s Lengthy Claw is a big shadow brush finest for depositing and mixing shadows. I like how they replicated the swords in such element, even right down to the dire wolf on the pommel of Lengthy Claw – I ponder if the ferrule is fabricated from Valyrian metal?! Whereas I will positively be utilizing these for utility, they may also be very doubtless used to sword battle when the event arises. I am solely human, you already know?
This is a glance that I did utilizing Casterly Rock, Nymeria, Home Lannister, Pink Maintain, and Bend the Knee within the internal nook of the attention. Rhaegal is on my cheeks as a blush, and I am sporting Sansa Stark Vice lipstick. 🙂
My prime picks? The eyeshadow palette, the liners, and positively Sansa Stark Vice lipstick for those who’re a pale ginger like me! For those who’re a fan of novelty brushes, I additionally suggest grabbing Needle and Lengthy Claw–in contrast to different novelty brushes I’ve owned, they don’t seem to be heavy and unwieldy, and so they nonetheless do the job they’re supposed for.
