On May 20, 2019, the last episode of Game of Thrones thundered. Eight years, favorite actors and sometimes inexplicable twists in the plot did not pass by BeautyHack. The most ardent fan of the editorial office, special correspondent Alexandra Grishina, managed to test the funds from the collection of the same name on himself. Read the description and verdict in our article.

“Eight years with the series flew by unnoticed for me: I waited for the seasons for years, worried about the characters, put the main theme on the ringtone. Do you know what I did the morning after the wedding? I watched the first episode of the seventh season at the hotel. Well, as you already understood – I really love Game of Thrones. And, having learned that Urban Decay is releasing a collaboration with HBO (we wrote about this here) based on the series, set a goal for herself – to get brushes and a palette of shadows at any cost!

At the time of the news announcement, I was in Vienna, and two hours later, the expected sold out happened on the American market. But there was a glimmer of hope to find the collection in Russia, or at least try it in the corner of the brand. The last dream has come true! Together with a makeup artist Lisa we went to the Crypt of Game of Thrones at the Winery, where I immersed myself as much as possible in the atmosphere of Westeros. Here we started creating my image.

A few words about my favorites of this collaboration. An eyeshadow palette is a godsend for a beautihol. Firstly, it is insanely beautiful: the layout, the main dynasties, the throne (!), On which, as Lisa says, you can “plant your fondant.” I am even afraid to use such palettes – I want to keep and show it to my children and grandchildren. Secondly, the pigmentation of the shadows: both glitter and matte shades are bright and dense, when using the base they do not lose their color. My favorites are Casterly Rock and Bend The Knee. And, thirdly, the realization that you are holding a rare palette, released in a limited edition. Honestly? I’m a little jealous of those who managed to order the entire collection.

But the most important question of colleagues and friends was the following: “What kind of lipstick is on your lips?” And they are wearing the famous Vice lipstick in the shade of Sansa Stark. Write down a life hack on how to make the shade even better: apply Glide On 1993 to your lips and lipstick on top of it. Persistence and rich color will live with you for at least 6 hours. This is how Lisa saw me – how do you like our image?

If you want to repeat the image, then the list of Urban Decay tools will help you:

1) Primer Potion Original

2) 24/7 Glide On waterproof eyeliner in Roach shade

3) palette of eyeshadow Game of Thrones, shades of Casterly Rock, House Targaryen

4) lip liner 24/7 Glide On in shade 1993

5) Game of Thrones Vice lipstick in Sansa Stark shade

6) Perversion mascara

7) mother of dragons highlighter palette

8) Brow Blade in Brown Sugar

9) Brow Endowed Volume Primer in Brown Sugar

10) All Nighter Fixing Spray (Super thing! Makeup lasts much longer with it)

By the way, the collection in Russia was sold out 40 minutes after the start of sales on the site! Therefore, the first thing I did in Milan was that at 9 in the morning I was walking under a rainstorm in Sephora and hoped that at least I would not see a sold out there.

Do you know how much joy the person who grabs the last palette has? Oh, it cannot be described in words, but the consultants laughed and rejoiced with me. “
