Mother of Dragons

Urban Decay Mother of Dragons Got Highlight Palette ($36.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a new, limited edition trio of highlighters that launches on April 14th on Urban Decay’s website and heads to retailers on April 29th. It contains a cooler pink highlighter with two warmer shades, a peach-gold and bronze. All three were fairly pigmented (the biggest “con” as they’re marketed as buildable), blendable, and easy to work with and lasted well on my skin over time.

Drogon

Drogon is a light pink with subtle, cool undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, dense (but not too firmly pressed nor was it thick over my skin) texture that picked up easily on my brush and blended out easily. It emphasized my skin’s texture just barely when worn at semi-opaque or greater coverage. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Viserion

Viserion is a light-medium, peachy gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented (though that’s not how they’re intended to be!) with a lightly creamy, denser texture that was soft and smooth to the touch but never powdery. The highlighter applied well to my skin with an even application that diffused easily along the edges and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It lasted for eight hours on me before it started to fade a bit.

Rhaegal

Rhaegal is a medium-dark bronze with warm undertones and a bright, sparkling sheen. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage (but more pigmented than described). It had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that applied evenly to my skin, blended out nicely, and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before it showed signs of fading.

Do you think this could be used as blush, highlight and bronzer for light skin tone? Currently wearing C3 or C3.5 in mac studio fix powder plus and 2C1 in EL Double Wear. Thanks!

Yes, I think so. I’m about 2N1 in Double Wear (listed in the “about the reviewer” section after the review) for reference.

Wow…these are really dark. I think it’s an easy pass for me, especially since they aren’t buildable! Very pretty though!

I can’t believe they didn’t make one have a blue shift to it. This is a nice palette and a great score. I don’t need this and I won’t be grabbing it. I actually don’t see myself grabbing anything from this collection. Huge fan of the show, but I haven’t seen anything that truly interests me.

Okay, growing cautiously optimistic, Christine. I’m not a GOT fan, but I’m both knocking on wood and crossing my fingers that UD stepped it up with the formula of these palettes, as I think it did with the Kristen Leanne collaboration. The latter (despite thinking, “My-head-is-gonna-explode-with-these-funky-shapes” in that all-shimmer palette, turned out to be a gorgeous formula.
…. I and the rest of your followers await your evaluation.😀🙏🏻

Also, I’m pleased UD did something somewhat more unique with the highlighter palette, even though (1) you’ve found them to be less buildable than described and (2) may not to appeal to many with lighter skin tones. Depending on how they swatch, they might be lovely bronzers, blushes, and eyeshadows as well.

While it’s true that the shades don’t exactly bring to mind Dany’s dragon eggs, I’m still in love with the concept here! I think it’s adorable! Now, as for the shades. I definitely see myself using all three on my skintone. BUT; I am going to pick up product from the perimeters of each pan so as to spare ruining the eggs for as long as possible!

Gorgeous shades, if they suit. But I think the pink one is a bit out of sync with the rest – that blush/highlighter seems cooler than the other two shades. But not for me.

Very pretty, but fat foo dark for me. I could possibly use Drogon as a very shimmery blush. I sort of wish they had been sold as singles.

I can’t get past the fact that highlighters are named after the dragons and don’t remotely inculcate the dragons’ colors. They could have gotten Viserion right (he’s supposed to be cream colored and with some gold – how hard would it be to do an iridescent off white with a gold shift? This is the part of the collection that turns me off the most. At least it’s good quality, but still. Does not compute!!

The highlighters are gorgeous. Rhaegal and probably Viserion are too dark for me, so I’ll pass. I kind of wish these had been singles. I would have bought Drogon.

Does anyone else ever get the urge to see what all the shades in highlighter palettes look like mixed together, especially when the colors are as different as these? Whenever I’m swatching them, I have to combine them, ha ha.
