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.
The Beggar Maid is a deep grey with holographic shimmer.
Angel Grace is a medium grape purple with holographic shimmer.
Shall Be My Queen is a bright red with holographic shimmer.
King Cophetua is a deep blackened green with holographic shimmer.
In Robe And Crown is a deep blackened red garnet with holographic shimmer.
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.
Which ones are your favorites?
