Around this time of year a lot of brands bring out their Halloween collections and while I'm a huge fan of black and neon, some releases feel like they'd only work for that one day of the year. Thankfully that's not the case for Revolution's new collaboration with Game of Thrones that feels a lot more autumnal than spooky season. The collection features 15 products ranging from £5 to £26 and includes practical items such as brow soap and eyeliner as well as the novelty items like an Iron Throne beauty sponge holder.
While the collection does lean more on the warmer side in terms of tone, there are a number of cool toned items too.

There are three 18-shade palettes - Dragons, 3-Eyed Raven and Winter is Coming. Dragons has a lot of rich reds, 3-Eyed Raven is more browns, while Winter is Coming is bluer than the Night King's eyes.
I personally found the 3-Eyed Raven palette the most wearable for my look and makes a fab smoky eye.
However, if 18 shades are not enough for you there is also the huge 48-shade Westeros Map palette.
To be honest I don't see the theme reflected in the colour as well with this palette, nothing about Westeros has ever seemed neon teal or sparkling blush pink to me, but there are some lovely colours and you can't really expect 48 shades of grey I guess.
Moving on to the more practical products, I must admit I was sceptical about the liner and brow soap given that they didn't feel very Game of Thrones. That said I absolute love this liner. It has a real point to it and I found it a lot more fluid than other pen-style liners I've used before - a winner if you love a flick.
The brow soap came in a handy container with spoolie that is surprisingly often missing from many brow kits. While I'm not convinced of its relevance to the franchise it is a solid product (pardon the pun).
The same can be said for the Dragon Lash mascara. Do dragons have eyelashes? Apart from the one from Shrek I don't think they typically do.
It is yet another solid product that, apart from the cool dragon scale packaging, doesn't exactly scream Westeros.
Probably my favourite product in the collection is the set of three 'shadow bombs'. These liquid shadows come in gold, silver and black and have a lovely buttery application. I'm not afraid to say that my eyeshadow game leaves a lot to be desired but I used the black with the silver over the top and it looked masterful. If you're going to treat yourself to one item from the collection I would suggest these, particularly if you like a dramatic eye look from time to time.
As well as shadow bombs, the collection has four lip bombs; liquid lips all named after our favourite Game of Thrones girlies.
There is a solid black (Daernerys), a vibrant red (Cersei), a burgundy plum (Sansa) and a muted pink (Arya). While at first I was unsure of the colour match to the characters the more I think about it the more I think it's genius.
The application is great and the staying power is what you expect from a liquid lip. Of the shades I was drawn to Sansa most although if you love a bold red definitely go for Cersei.
The collection also has a velvet make up pouch, some nice quality brushes and the star of the show, a sponge egg sitting on its own Iron Throne.
If you're a make up fan and a Game of Thrones fan this has to be in your stocking come Christmas, it's as cute as it is ridiculous. Mine has been sitting on my vanity since I got it and I laugh every time I see it. Necessary? No. Fabulous? Absolutely.
