Game of Thrones Inspired Eyeshadows

Is there a fantasy TV series as popular as Game of Thrones? Not many people I know watch it, but my aunt and I always discuss the episodes and my best friend got into it at the tail end of the last season.

Even if you haven't watched the series, you're probably aware of at least one element to the show: dragons. Three of them, to be exact, just as there are three shadows in this eyeshadow set from Strobe Cosmetics. The shadows are inspired by Daenerys's dragons Rhaegal, Drogon, and Viserion, and are named after the three and loosely based on the color of them.

I've got to say that this set makes me feel like Daenerys Stormborn, Queen of the Andals and the Seven Kingdoms, Breaker of Chains, Mother of Dragons, etc. etc. The trio is $15, not bad at all as compared to MAC and Makeup Geek, and it comes in a velvet pouch which makes it feel both more luxe and more GOT-esque. The shadows are noticeably larger than other single-pan shadows, so you're getting more product for your money.

I've never ordered from Strobe Cosmetics before, but shipping was relatively fast considering they are an independent brand and I'm sure they've been overwhelmed with orders since this set has been featured on websites like Refinery 29.

The three shadows are absolutely beautiful, both in formula and color.

Viserion: shimmery white-shifting-gold duochrome.

Rhaegal: shimmery green-shifting-gold duochrome.

Drogon: dark burgundy/brown with gold glitter.

I think Viserion and Rhaegal both have an amazing formula. They're so pigmented--I only needed to dip into Rhaegal once to cover the entire lid. Viserion makes a super bright inner-corner highlight. Drogon is just as pigmented, but has more fallout than the other two because of the glitter. The formula is really buttery. I think the duochrome aspect shows up the most with Rhaegal--I only notice it in certain lighting with Viserion.

I think Viserion is probably my favorite shade--it's truly the perfect highlight and can be used with multiple looks, whereas a greenish-gold and dark glittery burgundy are harder to incorporate into my day-to-day neutral makeup.

Overall, I think that if you like these colors, you won't be disappointed with how they perform. I'm often hesitant to order from smaller, independent brands but Strobe Cosmetics seems very promising. If you're a GOT fan--or just a fan of beautiful, unique shades--I would check out the Bay of Dragons set!

What do you think of these shadows? Do you watch Game of Thrones?

  1. We are fans of GoT and we are re-watching the first episodes at the moment. It's crazy because all characters are alive in the first episodes haha! Not many people I know watch it and I wish there was someone I could talk to at the end of each episode, so many new things happened worth discussing. And I cannot believe that we will wait one year and maybe more to watch the last season.


    1. I know, it's so frustrating! I would definitely talk to you about it next year x

  2. Ah such a great idea, I love GOT! Love that highlighter shade, not sure I could wear that green!

  8. Hi all,
    Read my testimony!
    Getting ex back after a breakup.
    My boyfriend of a 2 year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we've been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn't have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com call/whatsapp: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

  14. Getting back my husband after separation was very difficult for me because he went to settle down with another woman, i had two children for him already. I have tried to make contacts with him to come back home yet he refuse, each time i look at his kids i become more sad and i needed him at my side to raise the children together. I was so lucky i finally got the help i needed, i went on a search and i saw Dr Mack contact. People say he is a very powerful spell caster that he can put an end to relationship problem, causes that disturb destiny, he is also good in curing different diseases. He is such a special man gifted with powers and reliable spell caster that have a cure to most problems of life. My husband is back to me and we are living happily as it used to be, Dr Mack have done what i could never have done with my own powers.
