Zuzu over at Everyday Beauty has also written a great post on Elea Blake. You can read it and see some of her True Summer picks here: Everyday Beauty Elea Blake.
The Bright Winter selection is all, well, very bright. There is a single brown eyeshadow, but none of our medium greys as yet. I borrow Mediatrix (mid grey) from Bright Spring quite happily.
There are a couple of light eyeshadows in each season that work well as an eyeshadow wash, and Optimistic is the Bright Winter one I chose; an icy lilac with some shimmer to it. I bought this in the Reveal size, which is $5. I also bought Committed eyeshadow, a mid purple that works well as a lid shade.
The blush is Transparent, a neutral red that feels a touch too dark for my light olive skin; if I'd checked the description against my BW fan I'd have seen it's a mixture of two of the darkest red shades on the fan. With my next order I might try Floweresk instead, and give a couple of the Bright Spring blushes a go. (If you want a quick way to see if a pink/peach shade is a blush or eyeshadow - the blushes start at $6 for the Reveal sizes, the eyeshadows at $5.)
The pencil is Violine, a deep violet, with no shimmer.
Applied: a wash of Optimistic eyeshadow all over, Violine pencil with Committed eyeshadow smudged over the top. I think Optimistic works better than BB Lavender Metallic on me; Optimistic has a touch of pink to it that makes it more friendly on the skin.
I've also ordered and am waiting for a lip palette designed for Bright Winter and Bright Spring (called Elvis).
If you've had a PCA with a surprise result and have literally no idea where to start with makeup, a few Elea Blake Reveal sizes would be my first recommendation. It's also particularly helpful for the seasons that are tricky to find in mainstream cosmetics (True Summers and the Brights, I'm looking at you).
It's also good for anyone who likes colour rather than neutrals in makeup; you'll know for sure that that purple, green or blue will be seasonally correct for you.
Elea Blake ship internationally; be aware in the UK you might get stung for VAT and the Royal Mail processing charge (£8) if the value of the goods is more than £15.
