While waiting for the seventh Game of Thrones season, Daenerys Targaryen and Sansa Stark wannabees can drool over these new cosmetic must-haves.
Storybook Cosmetics, a Nebraska, USA-based cosmetics startup behind the Harry Potter brushes, announced on Instagram that they’re spawning a Game of Thrones makeup collection. The proposed kit includes a 12-shadow palette formed like a book, sword make-up brushes, a compact powder, and lipsticks that have shades akin to the series’ costume hues.
The company is currently waiting for HBO, the series’ cable provider, to license them to manufacture the products.

“Another possible collection for 2017! Here is hoping HBO sells us the licensing,” the company captioned its Instagram post on Wednesday. “If only half of these deals go through we are gonna have some amazing collab[orations] this year.”

In addition to Harry Potter and Game of Thrones cosmetics, Storybook Cosmetics also marketed other products inspired by literary legends and popular hits, including Star Wars lightsaber brushes, Doctor Who Sonic screwdriver brush and Wizardry and Witchcraft palettes. Also, a brush shaped like a red rose will be launched alongside its Game of Thrones collection.
Meanwhile, another online cosmetics firm, Shiro Cosmetics, debuted its very own “Marauders, Mugwumps, and Muggles” collection based on J.K Rowling’s epic series. One of its products, the “Butterbeer” lip gloss, instantly attracted Harry Potter fans and makeup addicts.
