Dorian Gray. Charcoal shimmer.
Jane Eyre. Red fleck shimmer in black base.
Tess D'Urbervilles. Green fleck shimmer in black base.
Missing in this post is of course Ophelia and Lady of Shalott, both of which will be up on a later date. But for now, behold what could be described as the most blackened shimmers ever. Good or bad? Well, I thnk this varies a bit throughout the collection. The ones seen in this post (except for Dorian Gray, of course) are the two extremes in both directions. While Tess D'Urbervilles has been described as the one of the four blackened shimmers that has the most visible shimmers, Jane Eyre is a tad too blackened to reach all the way to the shade I so very much desired when first seeing the bottle. Colorwise, it would be my favourite of the collection, had it shown more of the actual color, but the overpowering blackness removes it from the no. 1 spot. Tess D'Urbervilles, on the other hand, is still a contestant for the queen title.
It is definitely not a secret that I am a huge fan of the A-England brand, its products and its proprietor Adina, and while pigmentation varies a bit in this collection, I think A-England has a very consistent and awesome formula. I'm as always great friends with the outcome of the application process, this time as well.
Since the Gothic Beauties collection was released, A-England has released three more colors - one of them being in my forever beloved color family of golden olives - so check those out as well!
