Makeup Revolution GOT Winter is Coming Eyeshadow Palette Review


A couple of months ago, I reviewed the Makeup Revolution Game of Thrones Three Eyed Raven Eyeshadow Palette. I loved it so much that I decided to buy its sister palettes, Winter is Coming and Mother of Dragons. I plan to review Mother of Dragons next week but today is dedicated to the icy blue color story, Winter is Coming.


This palette, and the other two, were all originally $18.00. They are limited edition and have been on sale for months. The Winter is Coming Palette is currently $9.00. It contains eighteen shades: ten mattes, seven metallics/shimmers and one matte with glitter. The packaging is made of tin, has a mirror and a firm clasp closure. I personally love the tin packaging, but some may not. With the basic info out of the way, let’s talk pros and cons!


  • As with the Three Eyed Raven Palette, I love the Game of Thrones theme. Does the theme really matter? No but I’ve learned that if I enjoy the theme and packaging, I’m much more likely to reach for the product.
  • I also love the color story. This is the only blue focused palette I own and while blue isn’t a color I wear all the time, I’m happy to have these options.
  • The mattes were very easy to work with. I experienced almost no fall out and while they weren’t the most pigmented, they built up easily. I especially enjoyed using Winterfell, Coldness, Lord and Direwolf.
  • All of the shimmers weren’t great but White Raven, Wall of Ice and Motto were stunning.


  • The shade Night Sky is absolute garbage. It’s a hard packed royal blue with loose glitter. It didn’t matter if I used a finger or a brush, it made incredible amounts of fallout and would not blend.
  • The shades Crypt and Courage are almost identical and didn’t show up on my skin tone.
  • The shades Warning and Safety are just meh. They have a more satin formula and just aren’t very impactful.

Swatches & Shade Descriptions:

These eyeshadows do have names but no shade descriptions so I will describe them to the best of my ability. I’ll be going from left to right, top row to bottom row. These photos were taken with flash to show off the sparkle.


  • White Raven– metallic white
  • The North– matte powder baby blue
  • Warning– metallic indigo blue
  • Wolf’s Blood– matte turquoise  
  • Honour– matte cream
  • Safety– metallic blue


  • Crypt– matte creamy tan
  • Wall of Ice– metallic silver
  • Motto– metallic icy blue
  • House Stark– metallic light gold
  • Winterfell– matte deep blue
  • Courage– matte tan


  • Hunter– matte sky blue
  • White Walker– matte gray toned white
  • Coldness– matte cornflower blue
  • Lord– matte gray
  • Direwolf– matte slate blue
  • Night Sky– metallic royal blue

Eyeshadow Looks:

I created two looks using this palette. I almost always use an eyeshadow primer and set it with powder. I like both looks I created but I do feel they’re very similar. That is to be expected, though, with a more monochromatic palette.


  1. I set my primer with Honour.
  2. I blended The North above my crease. I also applied it on my water line.
  3. I blended Direwolf into my crease.
  4. I deepened my crease with Winterfell. I also smudged this shade on my lower lash line. 
  5. I blended Lord into Winterfell.
  6. I applied Warning on my lid.
  7. I applied Safety on the outermost part of my lid.
  8. I tapped Wall of Ice all over my lid.
  9. I applied White Walker in my inner corner,
  10. I applied Motto on top of White Waker.
  11. I applied White Raven on my brow bone. 
  1. I set my primer with Honour.
  2. I blended Hunter above my crease.
  3. I blended Coldness into my crease.
  4. I deepened my crease with a mix of Night Sky and Winterfell. I also smudged Winter Fell on my lower lash line.
  5. I applied House Stark on my lid.
  6. I tapped Motto on top of House Stark.
  7. I applied Wall of Ice in my inner corner.
  8. I applied White Raven on my brow bone.
  9. I applied Wolf’s Blood on my water line.

*I attempted to use Crypt and Courage but neither showed up on my skin tone. 

Brushes Used:

If you are curious about any of the other products on my face, you can find these looks in my recent posts on Instagram.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, this is a good, not great, palette. If you’re looking for an affordable blue color story, I don’t think you would be disappointed with this one. It does have some dud shades but it’s still fun to use. Let me know what you think about this one! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
