Urban Decay, a.k.a. my favorite makeup brand *ever,* is releasing a Game of Thrones themed makeup collection—and it’s an ABSOLUTE UNIT.
The limited-edition collection is inspired by the main power-houses of Game of Thrones, including (but not limited to) House Stark, House Lannister, House Targaryen, and even the White Walkers. It includes: two eyeshadow brushes inspired by the swords Longclaw and Needle, a twenty-piece eyeshadow palette, a three-piece highlighter palette, a lip & cheek stain, four new shades of their Vice Lipstick, and—last but not least—four new shades of the cult-classic 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil.
Okay, so that’s a lot to take in! Let’s break down what exactly we’ll be getting.
First, we have the main feature: The eyeshadow palette, which contains TWENTY new shades:
The eyeshadows consist of a wide array of colors, ranging from cool blues and silvers, inspired by the Wall and what lies beyond it, to warmer, jewel-tones for King’s Landing, earth tones for Winterfell, and fairy-tale shades of lilac, pink, and gold for the newly-named Bay of Dragons (formerly known as Slaver’s Bay).
Here’s an example of a super creative look you could create with the palette! I think this look is super creative because of the way it combines matte and shimmery shades in a graphic shape:
Next up, HIGHLIGHTERS!!!
The “Mother of Dragons Highlight Palette” consists of three new shades of the brand’s iconic Afterglow highlight: a pale pink, a golden beige, and a medium bronze color.
The shades are named after Daenerys’s three dragons: Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal. They can be used on the cheeks as well as the eyes, and would be ~perf~ for creating a monochromatic look.
The collection also includes four new shades of the cult favorite 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils!

The four shades consist of the following:
Dragon Smoke, which has a black base with blue and purple reflects; Lannister gold, a true gold shade; The Night King, a glittering teal, and Winterfell Snow, a cool-toned icy white.
I find that UD’s 24/7 eyeliner range has amazing staying power, especially in their metallic shades, so I’m hopeful that these hold up just as well! *Fingers crossed*
Okay, on to the lipsticks! The collection includes Vice lipsticks in four new shades, which I will describe for your convenience in order from ~left to right.~

The first is called Sansa: a “warm peachy nude.” The second is called Daenerys: a “fiery metallic red.” Next is White Walker: a “deep berry-wine.” Finally, there’s Cersei: a “metallic gold.”
For those of you who are super into Game of Thrones, but not super into lipstick, like me, don’t despair! The collection also features a lip & cheek stain, called Dracarys, pictured below!

According to the product description, this “universally flattering Targaryen red shade gives you the perfect see-through flush on lips and cheeks.” This shade would probably pair really well with the pink highlight shade, Drogon, from the highlight palette!
Alright folks, we’re in the home stretch. Finally, I give you the sword-inspired eyeshadow brushes!
The image shows Longclaw and Needle, respectively. Longclaw has more loosely-packed bristles, and is designed to allow you to deposit and blend out shadow over a larger area. Needle’s bristles are more tightly-packed—this brush would be good for creating something like a cut-crease!
If you’re a makeup and GoT superfan, you can buy the entire collection as one set, in The Vault:
Whew, that’s a lot of makeup—the entire collection is set to drop on April 14th!
