a-England Tennysons Romance Winter 2016

Hello and happy Tuesday!

The a-england Tennyson’s Romance Winter 2016 collection features five new shades and here is an Alfred, Lord Tennyson poem called The Beggar Maid which inspired this shimmery collection!

Her arms across her breast she laid;
She was more fair than words can say:
Bare-footed came the beggar maid
Before the king Cophetua.
In robe and crown the king stept down,
To meet and greet her on her way;
“It is no wonder,” said the lords,
“She is more beautiful than day”.

As shines the moon in clouded skies,
She in her poor attire was seen:
One praised her ancles, one her eyes,
One her dark hair and lovesome mien:
So sweet a face, such angel grace,
In all that land had never been:
Cophetua sware a royal oath:
“This beggar maid shall be my queen!”

All the colors swatched beautifully with just two coats.

All five of these colors are so pretty and shimmery, and the formula was spot-on as usual. My personal favorites are Angel Grace, In Robe And Crown and King Cophetua.
