It’s Saturday, which means it’s time for a round-up! Just finished reviewing all of the products in the upcoming Urban Decay x Game of Thrones Collection, which launches April 14th on Urban Decay’s website (and April 29th at retailers). There’s a lot of overlap in this collection past releases from Urban Decay from the last few years; like nothing about the actual products (as in colors and finishes) feels tailor-made for Game of Thrones. The packaging and names, absolutely, but the color story is lost on me. I would have really loved to have seen four individual palettes if they were going to be inspired by each house, or else I would have enjoyed seeing a palette that drew more from the feelings, stories, and settings of Game of Thrones as well as some of the characters.
Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick formula is rarely disappointing, which was true in this launch, and the highlighter formula was lovely, though way more pigmented than described (true of most of their highlighter shades, though). The eyeliners were probably the high point for me personally. The eyeshadow palette was a mixed bag but someone who tends to use their more shimmery/glittery eyeshadows with a wet brush will likely find it better.
